Cheltenham Open Meeting (Sunday)


It was with great sadness that I read about the passing of the Irish racehorse training legend Dessie Hughes this morning. So many winners throughout his illustrious training career that it’s hard to list them all here. We will all have personal memories of winners we’ve backed trained by Dessie and those are the reasons his legacy will live on in our hearts.

Bitofapuzzle (N Fehily, 4/1) was the only winner for this blog yesterday. I spotlighted the horse on Friday evening and it was the nap of the weekend for readers of my “Something For The Weekend” column on JPFestival.

All the features and advice columns are doing pretty well on there at the moment. Take a look for yourself. I would thoroughly recommend joining as it’s run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.
