PREVIEW FROM RACING POST SATURDAY MARCH 5, 2016. 
MARK STOREY SETS THE SCENE  (P2)
OPENING SHOW.
Mark Story assesses the action with one eye on bigger targets ahead. “

 “LEICESTER CITY top of the Premier League . Donald Trump eying the White House. It has been the season for our certainties to be shaken, in racing too.
 

“What odds would you have got about Collin Tizzard having more Grade 1 winners than Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls combined?  Or rookie trainer Kerry Lee waltzing off with a stream of big Saturday prizes?

“The question now,  with ten games left in the Premier League and the big spring jump festivals at Cheltenham and Aintree looming, is whether the winds are changing. Crunch time is coming and from punters to trainers and football managers, we all want to be in form, More Slaven Bilic than Arsene Wenger.
 
“Today at Newbury, Doncaster and Kelso will be as much about reading the signs as digging out winners, locating the trainers glowing  warm for Cheltenham and the horses coming to the boil for the Crabbie’s  Grand National.
 

“The big one at Aintree is just five weeks away and today we have a strong cast of contenders on show, four of the top eight in the market and the last two winners, led by the wonderful Many Clouds, compellingly consistent even in this most unpredictable of winters and who rehearses for the defence of his National crown in the totpoolliveinfo.com Premier Chase at Kelso.
 

“Beaten only by Don Poli and Smad Place in his last two, runs. Oliver Sherwood’s nine-year-old has tested the argument that National winners are washed up once they win it and, fingers crossed, will be back on Merseyside on April 9 with the best chance of any horse since Red Rum of winning the great race more than once. “

    BLOODHORSE LITERATE FORM NEWS INFO:
    MOMENT OF THE WEEK 
    WM: “It was great to see Rolly Baby getting off the mark over fences at Navan last Saturday. Winning a beginners’ chase at the age of eleven wasn’t unique but it was unusual. Rolly Baby was having only the eighth race of his career and only the second over fences, so it’s obvious he’s had plenty of problems over the years. But he’s always had plenty of ability and that’s why we persevered with him. Paddy Teahon – who used to have that good hurdler Mourad with us – owns him and I was delighted for him that his patience with the horse was rewarded. We’ll try to win a couple more races with him and we might mix it between fences and hurdles as we try to make up for lost time. “

    JMC: Rolly Baby ended up winning a beginners’ chase at the age of eleven. Having only the eighth race of his career, and only the second over fences. A beginner’ chase, is a race especially for racehorses who are starting out racing over the big chase fences. However many racehorses take part, they are all beginners’ all learning to jump the big chase fences at racing pace, Which means that there needs to be experienced jockeys riding to help the racehorses to learn to race over such obstacles. It could be said such races can turn out to be highly dangerous depending how many runners there are taking part who may get in each others way.  There appears to be no racecourse that modifies the fences in these type of races. Or restricts the number of fences to be jumped in a race.  Possibly because racecourse managers are usually bloodhorse illiterate.


    DOWNER OF THE WEEK:
    WM:We were expecting more from Potters Point at Leopardstown on Sunday when he started favourite for the maiden hurdle over two and a half miles but could finish only third. For a horse who showed good form in bumpers , his two runs over hurdles have been disappointing and we’ll probably put him away now and bring him back next season, probably over fences.
     JMC:  Showing good form in a bumper (a Flat Turf race) doesn’t guarantee a big run over hurdles for the first few times. The jump racing season 2015 – 2016 is winding down now, with the two big jump meetings, the Cheltenham Festival 2016 and the Aintree Grand National 2016 to close.

    WM: ““We’ll put him away now and bring him back next season” means take him out of training now. To bring him back into training next jump season 2016 -2017.
    ONE TO WATCH:
    WM: ““Timi Roli, a four-year-old who won a 1m7f conditions race on the Flat in France last summer, is a nice edition to our hurdling ranks and is one we’re looking forward to starting off in the new season. “
     JMC: Timi Roli in training to go hurdling for Team (Willie) Mullins next jump season 2016 -2017.

    “VICTORIA PEMBLETON
    “SHE’S CAUGHT THE BUG AND IS RAISING THE PROFILE” .

    IT WAS FANTASTIC to see Victoria Pembleton take a giant step towards Cheltenham when partnering Pasha Du Polder to victory at Wincanton on Wednesday.


    “She looks to have struck up a good relationship with the horse and all the hard work done on the schooling ground paid off.

    “Pasha Du Polder is a really good jumper, who went close to winning the Aintree Fox Hunters’ last year. He likes to roll along towards the front of the field, which might not be quite so straightforward in a race as competitive as it will be at Cheltenham compared to what happened at Wincanton, but he’ll go there with a live chance. It is barely a year since Victoria first sat on a horse and she has picked it all up very quickly. Nick Scholfield has helped her out a lot at Ditcheat and tells me she has a real knack with horses. She loves riding out and spending time with horses. Of course, it’s our love of horses that got us all into this great game and it’s brilliant to see Victoria has caught the bug too.


    “There was a great atmosphere at Wincanton before, during and after her race and there is no doubt whatsoever that she has raised the profile of racing. Big headlines have greeted each of her performances and now let’s hope there is another hugely positive story to come at Cheltenham. “


    “Hectic schedule amid previews.
    Clocking up the miles
    “I DREAD to think how many miles I have clocked up in the last few days, Particularly with the Cheltenham preview season now in full swing.

    “On Tuesday I rode at Leicester before dashing down to London to take part in my first festival preview of the year. It was very interesting to listen to Rich Ricci, while Matt Chapman was his usual self- managing to get everyone’s blood up!

    “The following morning I schooled The New One. He was quick and neat and I couldn’t have been more  happy with him.

    “I rode at Wincanton that afternoon, stayed with Nick Scholfield on Wednesday night and then went back to Wincanton on Thursday morning when a number of Paul Nicholls Cheltenham team worked, including Dodging Bullets, Clan Des Obeaux and Politologue.

    “After that I headed off to Ludlow for two rides, before Mum drove me to Oxford station to catch a train to London for another festival forum. It’s all been pretty hectic,

    JMC: These festival forums are all very well, so long as it doesn’t mean that by next Tuesday when the 4 day festival at Cheltenham starts all the jockey’s are worn out. Only Fit to drop.
    Bloodhorse Illiterate Male horseracing  government do more harm than good most of the time. Ignorance is bliss so they say.

    YOUNG STAR OF THE WEIGHING ROOM

    SAM TWISTON-DAVIES

    MOMENT OF THE WEEK
    "I had a sit on The New One, and some other very good horses who I could ride at Cheltenham.  
    The festival is getting closer and these are exciting times.

     JMC: All jockey's are forming their "Book of Rides" for each race on each of the four days at the festival.
     
    DOWNER OF THE WEEK
    "Mon Successeur death hard to take I was feeling pretty down in the dumps during the drive home from Kempton last Saturday.

    "Not having ridden any winners was a contributory factor, but the overriding memory of the afternoon will be the terrible loss suffered by the Cotton family and everyone at Ditcheat after Mon Succcesseur took a fatal fall in the Pendil Novices’ Chase. He was a very promising horse who had given me the most wonderful feeling when winning a decent handicap chase at Ascot in December. We all know these things can happen in racing, but it doesn’t make them any easier to take when they do.
