    In answer to JJ's question how good is she, that five-timer last night was for four different trainers and Willie Mullins chose her for his big Saudi winner the other day, True Self. These facts speak for themselves.

    She could challenge for the title but is gonna need more rides, Oisin had about 150+ more rides than her last season

    It was nice to see her 5 timer story knock the Elliott story down the pecking order a bit as well

    Might well have made it 6, had she not gone too soon in the last.

    Just for interest these are the jockey arrangements for the Festival

    GB BASED JOCKEYS RIDING AT THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL
    Currently the whole site will operate as a Green Zone area. However, within it is an area solely for participants travelling over from Ireland to keep them separated from GB based personnel. Irish personnel will have been strictly tested before travelling over and will be tested during the week.
    Arrival
    All jockeys riding at The Festival will be required to report to the Testing Station situated at the North Entrance to go through temperature and health screening checks before entering the racecourse and Green Zone. Please bring photographic ID. This is a requirement each day you are riding. Due to the current Government and Public Health restrictions, only those with rides on any given day will be allowed access. The Testing Stations will be open from 7am each day.

    Changing & Weighing Room
    All GB based jockeys will be based in M30, which is the Marquee just to the right once you have come through the North Entrance and behind the Main Weighing Room. Spaces have been made to accommodate both male and female jockeys with both shower and toilet facilities and there will be a doctor, a nurse and a physio in this facility. All GB based Jockey briefings will take place here which will also contain a set of scales, as this is where you will be weighing in and out for each race. A range of hot and cold food and drinks will be available.
    Irish based jockeys will be based in the Main Weighing Room.

    Stewards Room
    For this race meeting only the Stewards Room will be in M1, which is the marquee below the Parade Ring (normally an Owners’ facility). Stewards’ Enquiries will take place here, unless you are advised otherwise by a BHA Official, as it has more space to accommodate social distancing.
    Winning Jockeys
    As in previous years, there will be a set of electronic scales in the Winners’ Enclosure and winning Jockeys will be directed to weigh in here by the Clerk of the Scales for certain races.
    Placed Horses
    Whilst we are racing behind closed doors the 1st, 2nd & 3rd placed horses will unsaddle in the Winners Enclosure.

    Gallops
    GB based jockeys coming to exercise Irish runners in the morning will need to go through temperature checks and health screening before entering the site and the Green Zone. There will be a Testing Station for GB based participants in the carpark by the Main Stable Yard. Once checked in, they must proceed to top of the pull up area on the track to meet their horse, as entry in to the “Irish Bubble” is not permitted. Jockeys who leave the site after exercising will need to go through the health screening again if they return to the racecourse later in the day. Any jockey who remains on site and therefore in the Green Zone will not have to be health screened again.

    There are areas that are deemed minimal risk where you will not be physically segregated from your Irish based colleagues, namely, the Parade Ring and on the track but we do ask you to be mindful not to break social distancing.

    Please maintain two metre social distancing at all times and wear face coverings at all times unless eating and drinking.

    From March 1st there will be a 0.6% increase in the riding fee which was agreed with the ROA, in line with the inflation rate of December 2020.

    Therefore the improved NH fee is £174.63 and Flat £127.90

    Non-runner fee increases to NH £87.31 and Flat £63.95.

    Living arrangments are helpful

    Puppy still in the bad books
    Some people say he’s the best since Arkle and that’s certainly true when you look at what he’s done

    The interview Willie gave explaining about Puppy leaving a gap up the rail still makes me chuckle

    He's always a negative for me but 'dreadful' is a bit harsh.

    That's a word I probably wouldn't even use to describe Johnson.

    (I should add that when I describe Johnson as 'the ultimate oxymoron, ie a useless fanny', I'm exaggerating for comic effect.)
    Two's company, three's allowed.
