The bookies were caught napping when pricing up this season's title.
Even a week ago, Harry Skelton was on 12/1. I got nearly 8's myself a few days later. Now he's down to 2/1 in the only place I can find odds being offered, Paddy Power.
To me, it's a two horse race.
Sean Bowen benefitted from his brother's absence to have a cracking summer last time around. I don't see him as having the firepower this time and he's struggled to make much impact in May.
Brian Hughes is suffering from McCain's swift decline as a source of regular winners, as well as the trainer using Gillard and apprentices in his place far more than in the past. Picking up the pieces on the northern circuit won't deliver championship numbers of winners.
The reigning champion, Harry Cobden is the only realistic challenger to Skelton in my view. Does he have the hunger to put in the yards to do it again? Not entirely sure if he will and, even if he does, Skelton is setting a ferocious pace as his brother has undergone
a completely unheralded change of approach to the summer jumping season that he all but ignored last year. Harry had his first winner in October. He's had 23 in the first month this time around. That's good enough for me and even the 2/1 doesn't look unattractive.
