Ben Aitken at Narrow The Field provides a weekly free blog post where he highlights things he learned from the weekend’s racing.
In what is probably his last free blog post of 2020, he comments that horse racing is about the only thing that has kept him sane, in what has been a crap year away from racing.
He analyses Itchy Feet’s performance in the 3 runner Graduation Chase at Ascot and dissects, the type of race track he feels suits him best.
He then takes a look at Allart’s impressive victory in his first race over the bigger obstacles in the Noel Novices’ Chase and looks at Nicky Henderson’s record in Ascot Novice Chases.
And finally he analyses why the conditions were wrong for Hill Sixteen in the Tommy Whittle Chase and why his effort can be excused.
Ben’s articles make for an enjoyable and informative read. You can read the full article: https://www.narrowingthefield.co.uk/what-we-learned-from-the-weekend-18th-19th-20th-december/
