I don't follow NH racing that closely so when I went to a jumps meeting at Wetherby last year I was surprised at the number of top southern based jocks who had come up just for one or two rides, something I couldn't imagine their flat colleagues doing, unless they knew they were onto a winner of course.

Adrian Coleman, who rides mainly for Venetia so presumably is based in the south, has gone all the way up to Sedgefield today just to take one ride for David Dennis on Cyclop in the 2.45, which is only 3rd favourite in a 5 horse race.

Now why would he be doing this, am I onto something here, or is it completely insignificant, just more evidence that jump jockeys really are barking mad.

Yes, not surprised Alfie, just seems these NH boys will travel the length and breadth of the country for just the one ride. Not many flat boys would do it.

They travel ridiculous distances for one ride. I don’t know how they make it pay. It’s even crazier than that though - on Friday Wayne Hutchinson was injured, and we were offered a choice of replacement jockeys. I am pretty sure that one of those jockeys had 1 ride on the card in the 1st race, and was still there approaching the end of the day. They’re also hard as nails. Some of the things you see and hear is ridiculous. Nothing but respect for them, and then you get idiots saying Ruby’s regularly putting them on the floor for bookmakers - mentalists those people.
