THE JUMPERS BUMPERS ON FRIDAY.
What a marvellous initiative the introduction of 'Jumpers Bumpers' were when introduced a few seasons back, in order to give hurdlers, and chasers a run, while the national hunt tracks are unusable due to the adverse winter conditions.
Such a meeting will take place at Newcastle on Friday, with some big names from the Northern jumps scene running on the all weather, a spectacle worth travelling a long way to see, if only we could.
We have one runner when the once raced Wisteriarose contests the 1.10.pm, a bumper for horses who have only ever contested that discipline. Wisteriarose has some very talented siblings, including the 163 rated Hell's Kitchen, and the 148 rated Militarian, so she has a lot to live up to. It is safe to say she was very disappointing on debut 65 days ago at Musselburgh, but it is far too soon to write her off, Dougie Costello takes the ride.

Good luck to the connections, Mrs Jane Newett.
