THE CHASE FOR THE TITLES HOT UP
Saturday evening’s racing at Stratford-upon-Avon is eagerly awaited by us all when the champions of both the lady and gentlemen’s National Hunt amateur titles will be presented with a magnum of Bollinger champagne by our President, Mr Gay Kindersley.
With David England breaking his leg mid-season when leading the table, he has achieved an incredible feat by retaining runner-up position whilst forced to sit on the sidelines and watch his weighing room colleagues enjoying themselves on the racecourse. Thomas Greenall only recently overtook David’s total tally of 22 winners and is currently on 24 and has the title safe in his clutches. His next nearest rival is Alan Berry on 11, with Jamie Snowden also sidelined with a broken ankle when on 10.
The ladies title has not got such a certain result, although Rose Davidson looks set to retain her title with 9 wins to date. However, both Rachael Green and Jenny Riding are breathing down her neck with 7 wins each so nothing is certain, and a race is certainly on for the ladies runner-up slot at the least, with so few opportunities left for amateurs to ride over jumps between now and Saturday evening.
Good luck to everyone! And don’t forget, we will once again be celebrating the Champions great achievements with the AJA CHRISTMAS CHELTENHAM CHAMPIONS CRAIC which is on 15TH DECEMBER at CHELTENHAM RACECOURSE!
