With autumn firmly on the way and the Ferry Ales Brewery Beer Festival in full flow, this is the perfect opportunity to get a taste for the upcoming Jump season, on what is a top quality afternoon of racing in September.

 

It’s not uncommon for some of the winter horses to begin their campaigns at this time of year and there ought to be plenty of clues to help you pick winners in the months ahead on a competitive seven-race card.

 

The feature race is the Listed Prelude Handicap Hurdle over two miles and half a furlong, which was given its current status back in 2011.

 

Some smart hurdlers have won the race since then and - as its name would suggest - the Prelude often serves as a springboard for some of the biggest events in the first half of the season. With winners often going on to take their chance at meetings such as the November Meeting at Cheltenham it pays to take note.

 

Some of the biggest names in racing will be here to take their chance and one yard to watch is the Grand National-winning trainer Dr Richard Newland, who has won the Prelude three times since 2013.

 

Off the track there’s plenty to keep you entertained and occupied, including 20 of Ferry Ales Brewery’s real ales, lagers and ciders.

 

So get yourself to Market Rasen and drink in the action, the atmosphere and the wide range of refreshments on offer. Whatever your tipple it promises to be an action-packed day of fun!

A chance meeting…

John Cussons and Mike Holman meet commuting in and out of London every day. A mutual nod, a hello, and a few words later led to the guys becoming friends.

A Twist of Fate

April 2015 a chance discussion on the train to London led to Mike revealing his plan to exit the London rat race and open a Micro Brewery. In an odd twist of fate John had been looking at a similar venture to make use of a redundant farm building on the small holding he had just bought with his wife.
