It's not the horse. It's the jockey. Conjures errors out of everything he rides.

But the pundits never say it.

Maybe not the horse that was "a little bit scared" as Luke and Mick think

Backing short-priced Johnson/Hobbs novice chasers has a long been a quick route to the workhouse.

as you know clerkmore, some people are completely blind to this
either the horse is at fault or the trainer or both, but never the jockey

It is embarrassing to watch.

Yep, it is embarrassing to watch. I really do believe they don;t bother to school them beforehand. I mean Nicholl's horses nearly always know how to jump well when they switch to fences.

They wouldn't if Johnson was riding them!

Hobbs's chasers do even worse without Johnson, 170 wins vs 188 expected at BFSP. 259 wins in chases with Johnson aboard vs 257 expected. Not that I think Johnson is great at getting horses to jump (his chase stats without Hobbs are 395 winners vs 417 expected) but I think the problem is more with Hobbs.

Who does the schooling at the yard? Clearly Johnson is not there all the time. This sort of thing happens too often. Not as if they have got that many good horses to make a mess of.

Why any owner place a horse there? Even out of loyalty only goes so far.

Yet you have got that clown Chapman still trotting out his 'master trainer' act. Even Hobbs must be embarrassed.

dont write the horse off yet,defi du seuil was pretty poor on his first chase

They will be saying next that Gordon doesn't school his horses either!
