Dave I was told by some class ole boy fanciers regards the east winds early racing 'Roly your birds don't need to be lost, or ruined for the season. Now i'll' send maybe one or two old stagers just to keep in the averages.
So I never ever sent to the first one or two old birds races, for as they ended with 'And many a good bird are lost chasing averages and being sent once too often.

Same applies, as far as I am concerned, regards young birds. they have a life time to learn and prove themselves... no need to senselessly lose them and say the bird wasn't good enough. Biggest and daftest saying, or nigh, is 'If other birds can, or did do it, then mine should have...' Rubbish!

our race on Saturday is from Ilkeston 57 miles, unsure what to do..........its not far, but this is their first race. Suspect scratch

David I just read somewhere there's something like 15-20 liberations of NEHU YB's tomorrow around the Pontefract/ Wakefield area so you don't want to catch on to these with your handful !!!!

Yes. Never had a problem at those distances. As long as the weather is reasonable.
Won i last year 115, with a yb trained to 20 miles 4 times. Also won it with a yearling 255 miler, never raced as a young bird.
