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.

Newly updated August 16th:
the Roy Waterhouse Steeplechasing guide to
British National Hunt racecourses

Ayr to Ascot, Ffos Las to Fontwell and every jump track in between - the 2017 round of updates to the Take On The Tracks page is now complete, so click the link to read my guide to British jump racing venues.

New May 30th:
FOR 2016/17

Pleased to publish my Top 20s for the 2016/17 National Hunt season in Britain and Ireland. Find out who are my top chasers, hurdlers, juveniles and mares.

New May 26th:
2017 Cheltenham Festival Analysis/Ratings
Four hundred and eighty eight runners watched, cover to cover, top to bottom, left to right then left again. With most analyses longer than 140 characters. It's the 100% Roy-interpretation of the 2017 Cheltenham Festival, with in-running comments and handicap ratings over all four days.

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).

Jumps Scene and Notebook pages return
around late Summer or early Autumn

Check Twitter (@jumpracing) or back here for info on when the updated pages in the Jumps Scene and Notebook pages will be appearing, previewing the main part of the 2017/18 jumps season. Between now and then I'd best get writing...

New April 1st:
THE #rwsteeplechasingVLOG
#22: Post-Cheltenham Festival Catch-Up
