Hello and welcome along to the Roy Waterhouse Steeplechasing website, and especially if you're dropping by for the first time. Here’s what’s on at the moment.

Race Meeting Review, posted April 19th:
Plumpton, Sunday April 16th
Plumpton staged their richest-ever race on their Easter Day-card, the £30,000-added Sussex Champion Hurdle, which was taken in good style by novice chasing-prospect Tommy Silver - that and the rest of the card reviewed.

Latest PLOG (Punter's Blog), new March 27th:
A Meeting of Two Halves
That was more like it - eventually at least. A good Cheltenham 2017 is discussed in the latest PLOG (Punter's Blog).

Posted August 27th:
The Notebook Section for 2016/17
Back for the new season - all my Notebook Section pages for the 2016/17 National Hunt season are now live, so click the links to see my Ten Horses To Follow for the season, and my Jockey and Trainer To Watch-pages for the 2016/17 season.

Posted August 27th:
The Jumps Scene pages for 2016/17
Along with the Notebook-pages, all the Jump Scene-pages live now - Champion Hurdle predictions discussed in my look at the current and future crop of top two-mile to to 2m4f hurdlers, a few lines about the staying hurdlers, my look at the top two-mile to 2m4f chasers and, added last but by no means least, my take on the top staying chasers.

FOR 2015/16

In the week that the Anglo-Irish Jumps Classifications for the season just finished were published, here is a credible alternative in the shape of my Top 20s for the campaign. Find out who are my top chasers, hurdlers, juveniles and mares. There are a few differences between these and the 'official' ratings...
