The racing diary returns as the National Hunt season starts to really get going.

BRAVEMANSGAME won the first big clash of the season with some excellent jumping and will now probably go to the King George on boxing day.

IRON BRIDGE went well in the 13:25 today at Carlisle to get off the mark on chase debut and stay undefeated. It might be worth keeping an eye on the form of the race, there were some nice unexposed prospects in the race.

BEAUPORT won on chasing bow today in the 14:30 at Carlisle, BEAR GHYLLS was going well for a long way and is also worth following up in future races.

INTHEPOCKET won really well on first run under rules today and looks like one to follow as his career progresses. DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL is another aimed at mares Hurdle races, she was highlighted on our tracker jumpers for the season and got off the mark over hurdles on the first go today.

I will add regular racing diary comments over the National Hunt season so do check them out because plenty of form came out of them last season.

We have a couple of places left on our last hotel course next Friday in Manchester, this is the last hotel course until next spring time at the earliest. I have also contacted everyone on our online course waiting list, limited places are back open for November. This can be done in your own time at your own pace. Drop an email if interested.
