It has been a great season for us on our travels to Perth, with eight winners from 15 runners, so I felt we had to support the two-day meeting that takes place on Wednesday and Thursday this week, the final days of racing in 2012 at the UK’s most northerly racecourse!

We have sent four on the long journey up, with last-time-out winning juvenile hurdler Third Half, bumper second Benefit Of Youth and previous Perth scorer Stonethrower all in action on Wednesday, while Piment D’Estruval will go for the novice handicap hurdle on Thursday.
The 2012/13 edition of the Jumping Prospects book, expertly put together by John Morris for the 21st consecutive year, is now available to purchase.  Containing interviews with many leading NH trainers, it is an excellent resource and well worth the £12.95 outlay.  For information on how to get your hands on a copy, please visit John’s website,
