huge interest in the Bumper at Ffos Las
Well normally many racegoers leave when it's time for the 'bumper'; usually the last race . But not down at Ffos Las. As in Ireland, bumpers hold great interest. Though there are no jumps (the idea being it's a introduction to the racecourse for jumps horses who haven't run on the flat) to connections and friends here the bumper is a time of great excitement to see the potential of these young horses for the first time. I have never known a race with so many tips flying around!!! I bet on Kuilsriver and Silver Commander as this bumper was 1 mile 6 furlongs; a shorter distance than the 2 miles these races are normally; and that distance should suit them. It's a good trick question in pub quizzes. What's the shortest race under national hunt rules?' It's not two miles after all! I also had a tip for Magical Man too so could these big priced outsiders upset 'Keys'; the horse sent by 1990 Derby winning flat trainer Roger Charlton from Beckhampton? I'd had a great day betting but a 25/1 winner would be a great end to the day... The temperature had fallen almost ten degrees to just plus five but most people braved the cold and remained to watch in an exciting atmosphere...
