The jumps season is here and as you’ve probably noticed, so is the cold weather and the lingering threat of a bad case of the sniffles — or as most men like to call it, imminent death. It’s great fun, but it’s also a minefield of bacteria and crappy tips from people who don’t know what they’re talking about.
Ruby Walsh is a man of many talents, so the Paddy Power Blog asked him not only for his tips for the jumps season that we hope will make us rich beyond our wildest dreams, but also for his tips on getting through life a little easier.
At first Ruby thought we were a bit mental, but then we pointed out he’s contractually obliged to work with us. And the studio door was locked. All of a sudden he was a lot more accommodating, even wearing a hi-larious wig for our amusement.
It’s well worth a look if you’re looking for some tips for the jumps season, or you just like top sportspeople in strange scenarios.
