With the cold snap interrupting the National Hunt programme this week, it has provided me with the opportunity to finalise my interviews for the forthcoming edition of Ahead On The Flat. During the last 24 hours I have spoken to both Andrew Balding and Owen Burrows. The complete list for Talking Trainers is Andrew Balding, Owen Burrows, Roger Charlton, Keith Dalgleish, William Haggas, Iain Jardine, David O'Meara, Hugo Palmer, David Simcock and Roger Varian.
Finally, on a frustrating note if you haven't already heard, my ante-post selection for the Grand National has met with a setback and has been ruled out. Hopefully, we can get all the bad luck out of the way before Cheltenham starts. It is a sickener because I thought he was tailormade for the race.
“Thank you for a very successful and profitable email service. My personal highlight was the win of Aloomomo whose romp round Uttoxeter was a joy. Keep up the good work with all your services, the books and updates, they are simply the best by a very long way.”
