Title: The Horse racing thread
Post by: maddog on December 19, 2006, 03:02:32 PM
I can't find the old thread, maybe it got lost along with drici in the great migration to the new board.

Anyway, has anyone got any nags laid out for christmas, or anything shaping up nicely for cheltenham. Its always nice to boost the beer fund at the expense of some local shark. ::)

Maddog these are seasonal tips and nothing else.

Christmas Truce in 3.00 at Linfield must be a seasonal tip at this time of year and
for the hurling fans
Kylkenny in the 2.30 at Lingfield. This horse is an outsider.
Finally I would NOT throw the Kitchen Sink at this horse in the 3.35 at Lingfield.

I've followed this nag for a while(after seeing his jockey pull the head of it and get it beaten on purpose), I did of course not back it when it skated in at 50/1? a while later :-[.  It ran on saturday(badly), but I think it is a coup waiting to happen and today could be the day.

with Boxing day fast approaching can someone please explain to me how a Lucky 15 works might just save myself a fortune if I can figure out how to work 1 instead of sticking money on evry race
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: full back on December 20, 2006, 01:43:50 PM
Lucky 15
4 horses
15 bets -4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles & a 4 timer
Bookies normally pay twice or treble the odd is you have only one winner
I think
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: AZOffaly on December 20, 2006, 01:47:12 PM
In a lucky 15 you basically are making 15 bets. a €1 lucky 15 will cost you €15.

You pick 4 horses, and your bets are as follows.

4 Singles  @ €1

6 Doubles @ €1

4 Trebles @ €1

1 Accumulator @ €1

If they all come up, even at short prices you would be quids in. If you only get one winner, the odds are normally between twice and 3 times the actual odds for that horse depending on the bookie. PP pays 3 times.

E.g. I have a €1 lucky 15. My first three horses lose. My last fella wins at 10/1. Paddy Power will actually pay me 30/1 on that bet, which would be a €31 return.

Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: AZOffaly on December 20, 2006, 02:19:48 PM
Any odds on that Christmas Truce??

BenDover, I usually do €3 Lucky Fifteens. It feels like a good bet for less than 50 quid. All the more so if you have a good tip included.

Backed it straight :-[, that was probably the race it was set up for as well, last time it won it was out again within days with a 5lb penalty but was beaten into second if I remember correctly. Could be worth watching out for if racing with similar shite horses again.

Anyone have anything 4 2day???

There is a Barney Curley runner at wolverhampton called Bold Phoenix with Eddie Ahern up. You never know whether a curley runner is trying or not but watch the market. Another one at Ludlow is Jimmy Tennis. Horse used to be rated much higher than it is now. I'll be having a bit EW on both of them.
Note these are not tips and i'd normally stop a train.
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread

Tyrone Sam 3.30 at Lingfield for all you Tyrone fans???

These horses come with a severe warning. I could stop a truck my luck is so bad at the moment as witnessed by the close seconds yesterday.

Malletton 1.10  ludlow
Jarro 1.40 ludlow
Darkshape 2.10 ludlow
Jimmy tennis 2.40 Ludlow

Would recommend no more than 50p/60c yankee or lucky 15

When I heard it was 15/8 favourite I didn't bother putting a dime on it. How can a bookie's tip be a tip?

To be fair, the biggest sum I won on horses was from a tip on gaaboard (old) by Budwiser. In fact he scored two biggies in a row.

Meade horses tomorrow -

Rock House  - she's running at Fairyhouse 2.10. I'd stay away. Fell last time out. Never won in 8 attempts with a second and 3 thirds. Probably it's biggest price yet though with some quoting 66-1.

2.40  Island Life - seven runs and placed 5 times with 2 wins although 3rd last time out when odds-on. Prob 4-1. Prob Carberry. Prob win.
3.45 Saddlers Brook. Very interested. Ran once, finished 3rd of 12. The lady Carberry on her. Prob 8-1.
4.20 Riccardo. Madden riding. One win from 6 and that was the debut at 9/4. Usually Carberry. Madden rode once before finishing 5th from 27. Adventurous around 33-1.

Isn't Joe Kernan connected to that horse?

Headed on the line Stranworst at 9/1. Bloody typical.

Apparently the trainer put the defeat down to a lack of support at the venue. If he is that's two short head defeats on one day for Joe.

Frances Crowley became the first woman to train an Ulster Derby winner when 3-1 joint favourite Kempes won by two-and-half lengths at Down Royal.
Kempes, ridden by Crowley's husband Pat Smullen, won from the other 3-1 shot Callow Lake with Swiss Cottage in third place at 5-1.
The win was great news for Armagh GAA manager Joe Kernan on the eve of his semi-final replay against Fermanagh.
Kernan is a member of the Three Cheers syndicate which owns Kempes.

A sickening weekend for Joe

Liefly tomorrow?  Changed my mind, not backing this little filly.  Might as well take my score and put it on Laois for the Leinster.  Too much trouble in the stalls, wants to sit down and fold its front legs. "The stable jockey is riding it because the horse is more used to him and might not sit down"   Its a six furlong sprint FFS !!.  I have backed horses in my time that tried and failed but by Jaysus I never want to back one that is sitting down with its arms folded with a stable lad appealing to it to get off its arse, "because the horse knows him" !    Dog meat, Tin, Albert Reynolds processing plant....etc.  Go for it if ye want but, as our mo"thers used to say, don't come crying to me if you fall off the wall.


"This betting really should be banded. It's encourageing young people to gamble and that's not what a GAA Board should be about!"

This is the non-gaa discussion board. It is an escape from the humdrum of the GAA that many of us like. I sincerely hope that the horse racing thread is the most upsetting thing you come across on the internet.  I am sure the lads that place an odd bet are not standing on village street corners sucking on a cigarette but with no arse in their trousers.

Post by: Hardy on May 29, 2007, 09:42:49 AM
That's a strange one all right Bud. I'd have hoped the reason for putting the stable jockey up was that he was the pick of the stable. I'll steer clear, as you suggest - and we'll say nothing if it comes in at 10/1.

The stable jockey has been demoted from Liefly now and one of Magniers lads is going on board. Says he is still sitting down in the stalls.  Did anyone ever see a horse sitting down?  I think now I will put a fiver each way on it although he is in among horses from top trainers.

Manilou, issued 12;18pm.


"On behalf of myself and the jockey who was yawning getting off me in Punchestown I wish to apologise for my performance on that day.  I know some of you footballers will understand how it can all go wrong. Now I'm hearing about some upstart called Liefly trying to upstage me or something and who thinks themselves so important that like J Lo they want a chair to be located in the starting stalls so they can sit down waiting for the start." 

"My advice is keep yer money in yer pockets and don't have anything to do with this newcomer at all.  I am running  on this Saturday evening and I intend to give it the full lash.  There is only one thing, me father and him before him were plough men and in their custom I am fond of the soft ground, never have won a race on hard stuff and never will.  Looking out through the half door down here now it is raining so I'm going for a win on Saturday at about 33/1 to try and make up for my sins at Punchestown"

Anyone going down there on Sat fond of a pint can meet for one out of the winnings as I am fairly fond of the odd pint!

Is it early prices you're after Bud? You probably won't find prices on a meeting like that until the day,  or Betfair the day before - www.betfair.com. Otherwise, you could always ask for a price in a shop or on the phone. I don't know if most of them would accommodate you unless it was for a substantial amount but you're probably better anyway to wait until the day and get on early if you think there'll be a lot of money for it. www.oddschecker.com is great for checking out who's offering the best prices.

He'll be walking around the stables with the head up in the air now for another week or two full of himself and demanding days in the swimming pool before Galway.  The jockey did a good job, see him switching the whip coming round the last furlong and lashing him out of it?  That's where the problem has been, he would never quicken on the run in.  AT least we got back a few bob from our loss at Punchestown.

Liefly was in amomng horses bought for £200,000 in Leopardstown and not just one, but a few of that calibre so Tiochfaid his La! He even pissed off a few of the big boys who didn't run as well but was out of his dept on his first attempt.  Wait 'till he starts headbutting the door of the starting stalls wanting to get out instead of wanting to sit down!

Drove up O'Connell St yesterday and there they had a big Slingbox lowered down over and around the spike and the boyos scrubbing away for €280,000 worth of cleaning. I mention all of this because of a horse I am backing in Naas today.  So there you have it!

When I woke up this morning after watching Ciaran Wheelan walking around Croke Park with his hands on his hips like he was looking for mushrooms and turned on my Paddy Power web page it said "Hi Tom, your balance is 00.00"

So if Sling Back fell over the line on top of his head half an hour after the others I am putting an E/W bet on him today, providing it does not piss rain from the heavens between now and when he is lined up.  Same rules apply, don't come crying to me if ye fall off the wall.

I am worried Slim, put my last few bob of the week on it, heard at the last minute that the going was too soft so a disaster all round. I though at one stage he was going to make it up the outside but not to be.  He has to win the next race, he is threathened with the same fate as Manilou, dog meat in an Albert Reynolds tin if he doesn't win for the owners to keep him fed so he will probably end up in a donkey race somewhere in the coming weeks.  Sorry about that

Should have said, it won pulling away. One lad came to challenge about 4 out, but he got burned off, and she won looking over here shoulder. I'd say 6 or 8 lengths maybe.

Had a score on it. My bookie runner did a pound ew on it. God help the lads wit. It should go in again if turning out soon.

According to my home-made bet calculator spreadsheet, it returns £431.87.

Jaysus Hardy, home made bet calcuator spreadsheet, sounds like some job.
What different bets can you work out on it??

All the combinations for up to 5 horses - singles, doubles, trebles, trixies, 4-way accums, yankees,
lucky 15s, super yankees, 5-way accums and lucky 31s. Haven't got to Heinzs, etc.

You're welcome to a copy if you pm me your email address.

Can't say I really understand Yankee bets too well but Paddy Power provides a calculator if its any addition.

the make a selection drop-down box also gives other bet types.

Rob Wright in Times(UK) is the top tipster around, he won the Newspapers' tipster title again last year (doesn't include pricewise in the RP).  Normally his naps are decent prices, none of this Napping 6/4 shots shit (Neville Ring being N#1 culprit).

No doubt I've put the mother of all scuds on him, but his selection tonight is Faith & Reason in the 7.35@ Windsor

Post by: The Real SlimShady on June 14, 2007, 03:21:59 PM
no, none recently though AP is a worse tipster than you and is renowned for being so!

I'm yet to post a 'tip' that has failed you shall find- be it 2/1 4/1 or Evens. which is more than I can say for yourself who manages to stop odds on shots!  :D

the difference between my 'tips' and your 'tips' is that mine actually have some credibility, whereas yours is more of an educated guess. Please, for the wealth of the posters on here that actually heed you-stop posting them! I'm sure if they wanted to some journo's tips they would!!

Verchoyles Lad was out for a trot around Leopardstown today, came nowhere like in his last four races.  How and ever, he will be winning his very next race despite all the zeros in front of his name so don't let the form prevent you from putting a punt on him. More news when the time comes but just in case I miss the opportunity to tell ye at the time keep an eye out. He will almost definitely be getting a Graham Gerathy  :-* when he comes home next day out.

those were horse i fancied benji, nothing more! apparently i wasn't the only one who fancied Cockney Rebel either!!!! they weren't 'tips' unlike the donkeys you gave out  :D

i don't get many tips but those i do get usually win, hence the term 'tip' benji, you are a clown with a paper picking hosses, don't tip them if they arent tips and just say you fancy this or that.

to cut a long story short, stop being a ****.

As I've already pointed out, I've yet to 'tip' anything on this site :o merely relaying the fact that Rob Wright is a dam fine tipster, and he's obliged with Excellent Art today ;D.  I wouldn't inflict some of the 'tips' I get on this board.

Post by: cavan4ever on June 20, 2007, 12:48:59 PM
Got these of a tip site which has a 32% Strike rate.  It has 1 out of 4 yesterday.
Some days it can have 3 winners and then none for 2 days i have lost more than i have won on it though

Horse Name: Major Cadeaux
Racecourse: Ascot
Time: 2.30 Jersey Stakes (Group 3) (Class 1) (3YO only)

Beat Dutch Art over 7f's at Newbury on his seasonal debut and only 3l's behind Cockney Rebel when attempting a mile LTO.
That was a good effort considering it was carrying a small knock on his foot so with a drop in trip and ground to suit he should land this.

Early price: 3/1

Horse Name: Echelon
Racecourse: Ascot
Time: 3.05 Windsor Forest Stakes (Fillies' Group 2) (Str) (Class 1) (4YO plus)

Has looked awesome the last 2 races and can complete a hat-trick today, he beat Topatoo at Newmarket over 1m1f and the form has been franked by Topatoo winning since. 2nd in this last year when 2l's behind Soviet Song and
Kerrin McEvoy is quoted as saying this is his best chance of a winner this week.

Early price: 3/1

Horse Name: Red Rocks
Racecourse: Ascot
Time: 3.45 Prince Of Wales's Stakes (Group 1) (Class 1) (4YO plus)

Won LTO at Sandown beating Notnowcato into 4th and was 2l's clear of 2nd Mashaahed over this trip.
Man of the moment Frankie Dettori is riding full of confidence and will be hard to beat given the fact that his form on this horse reads 122211.

Early price: 3/1

Horse Name: In Safe Hands

Racecourse: Ascot
Time: 5.30 Sandringham Handicap (Fillies' Listed) (Class 1) (3YO only)

Chased home the very impressive Measured Tempo from the Godolphin camp LTO at Newbury and should go close with top jock Mick Kinane in the saddle. Had Truly Enchanting back in 3rd that time and the later horse has won twice since so with that form and Kinane we should see a good show.

Early price: 14/1

Several attractive fillies lined up, and something of a surprise that outsider DIXEY, from a family that tend to win at 3yo or older, proved good enough to win on her debut.
Green at the start, she assumed a handy position and was travelling with conspicuous ease when leading early in the straight. Although she edged left in the closing stages, she was well on top by then and should stay at least another furlong.


Dixey
went left start, took keen hold, chased leaders, headway over 3f out, ridden to lead over 1f out, edged left but ran on well final furlong

Someone take Benny off the blacklist!!!

i had a couple of quid on it EW at 20's, which is the only reason i backed it as Benny said it was 8s earlier.

well, not the only reason- it was an open race, only 3 or 4 horses had runs to their name so i thought what the hell. also, my mate said the favourite was a banker and that ruled him out as he's the biggest scud on earth! won easy anyway- good man benny.

14 Apr '07 Op 13/2 Won @ 11/4
11 Apr '06 Op 3/1 Won @ 9/4
26 Sep '06 Op 7/2 Won @ 6/4

Last time out was backed from 7/1 to 3/1 but was beaten by 3l

Ascot for the Coronation, Indian Ink.  came from the owner who was trying on his tops and tails the same time as a friend of mine.  Big odds so each way.

Holy Jaysus. Another big winner from Benny, although in fairness I had him from Newstalk's Don whatyacallim as well.

Nice one though Benny, a successful week after a bad start :D


Edit : Sorry john, I thought that came from benny. Either way, a lovely touch. Thanks again!!

Had to call into Boyles today to get gift vouchers and just happened to be five minutes before the race. Haven't backed a thing all week at ascot, saw Indian Ink on the board and had an each way punt. Cheers John, covered the cost of the gift vouchers and then some :)

Friend of mine is part of the Syndicate that owns Rowan Rover, goes in the 6.40@windsor, it's been knocking on the door the past couple of races and they expect it to go very close.  I was told not ot take an early price (unless you can get guaranteed odds). 

I notice it's up against Rob Wright's nap as as well- Doubly Guest.

Well I won't be tipping anymore considering I went into the office of one of the owners on Wednesday and an accountant employed by the owner who is/was my friend wanted to know what was this about "Shane" and telling him and everyone on the board about his nag going to win.  I was pretty pissed off anyway.

There are a couple of  big movers at Kempton tonight – Spanish Diva in the 19:20 backed in to 8/1 from 33/1 and Rosy Alexander in the 18:50, from 33/1 to 11/1

In fact there seems to be a significant mover in nearly every race at Kempton:

18:20 Drumming Party in from 7/1 to 9/2
20:20 Junior 5/1 to 7/2
21:20 Wrighty Almighty 15/2 to 9/2

Perhaps, and it does seem odd to have a steamer in nearly every race. But it would seem to be very co-ordinated if it's a scam. Though I suppose it only takes one to start dropping a price to cause a move. This lemming has had a little multiple anyway - won't be too high a cliff to fall off.

What is it with steamers at AW tracks?  Every time W'hampton or Lingfield are on there seems to be at least 1 big market mover, is it a case of dodgy bookies or idiot punters?  Granted some win but I tend to stay well clear of them.

Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Hardy on July 05, 2007, 03:23:27 PM
Lads there’s a substantial track bias at Bellewstown (I was practically reared on the course). Low numbers in the draw have a distinct advantage in mile races. (The 5f is straight and the draw doesn’t really affect longer races). It’s hard to win a mile race drawn outside 4 at The Hill (you’d rarely hear a local refer to it as Bellewstown).

There’s only one mile race this evening and the odds-on favourite (Hum The Tune, 10/11) is drawn 3. It might be worth looking at Ardglen Flyer, drawn 1, 12/1. A forecast might be a good option here.

Trap 2 is Run Beauty, 40/1 and 4 is Seen and Heard, 25/1. Each way punts (or place on Betfair) can always be considered on any of the inside 4 over a mile at The Hill. But don’t come crying to me if the second favourite wins it from the outside stall.

OK, well the draw is one thing, but if you're an ould sow you won't be placed in a horse race. Hope yiz didn't go mad lads, joking aside. I backed the forecast Hum The Tune and Ardglen Flyer, which had the form to be placed but maybe didn't like the weather!

Anyway - as predicted, the winner was drawn in the inside stalls!

More about Bellewstown Track Bias

I’ve been doing some research on the outcome of backing low-drawn horses in mile races at Bellewstown since 2000 (9 meetings, 53 races).

If you backed every horse drawn No. 1 in every mile race in each of those meetings, you would be running a profit of €37.00 to a €1 stake. If you backed every horse drawn 1 or 2, the outcome would be a €46.75 profit. Include horses drawn 3, and the profit is €37.25. Go to stall 4 and you’re into a loss (€-2.00).

However, the bad news is that these results are heavily influenced by one meeting – July 2000, when there were winners at 33/1 and 16/1 out of stalls 1 and 2.  Take that meeting out of it, though, and you still show a profit, though much smaller (Stall 1: €9.00, 1&2: €7.75, 1,2&3: €4.35).

Make of it what you will and of course statistics like this are only sensible over a large number of instances and can’t predict a single event.

For what it’s worth, the statistics for tonight’s 3 one-mile races (17:20, 19:50, 20:20) by the same criteria all show a loss, if you exclude July 2000, except backing Stall 1 in the 19:50, which shows a €1.50 profit . If you include July 2000, they show big profits, but the 19:50 and 20:20 races tonight were the ones that had the 33/1 and 16/1 winners from traps 1 and 2 that year.

(I'm just giving you the statistics - what, if anything, you do with them is up to you).

I'm just goint to try backing stall 1 and two in each of the three races, for the crack - subject to looking at form, which I haven't done yet. If there's an obvious donkey, I'll pass. Better move - 17:20 coming up.

Manilou is out tomorrow night (8pm) Kilbeggan and I am going up to see him piss past the post.

He is listed for The Galway Plate and needs this win to avoid being balloted. He said he knows the story and what he has to do.

I expect he will win tomorrow night and be found lying across the old road on the Curragh on Saturday morning after the celebrations.

Crazy crazy stuff.  The yoke that won was the one he beat last time out.  There was some winking among the jockeys before the race and quite frankly I don't think the horse was ridden well.  Strangely enough, they were breathalysing the jockeys in the weighroom at one stage, whether this is common practice or not I don't know, unless they were Dub jockeys and they were afraid they would fall asleep on the track.

Anyway, Tom Flood has another two fifties of my dosh because of that stupid horse.

Any tips or fancies for Galway?
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Homer on July 30, 2007, 01:56:04 PM
Fellow punters,

How about we do a bit of a competition for the Galway Races?

Everybody starts of with a pot say 300 bananas, and maybe have a max-limit of 100 a day. Each day everybody posts there bets and there balance and the leader at the end of the week gets crowned the top napster.

There'll be no prizes for the winner(s) but if they have any fate in their knowledge they should be in decent shape at that stage anyway.

Just an idea for a bit of craic.

If its too late to start today we could leave it til tomorrow

Floor open to suggestions / abuse.

Unless you know an owner, nothing else is a tip. We had a dog for a while and we felt like the mafia, the dog was on this stuff to give him a start, that dog was on this to keep him to last to the line, the dog would be stopped. Do reverse forecast for the laugh and just sit back and enjoy a few pints.

"Apparently" the owner is putting a rite slab of cash on it...

Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Candyman on September 28, 2007, 12:04:32 PM
Isidore Bonheur is 6/1 at the minute... fav is 6/5???
Jimmy styles is 10/3


FROM SPORTING LIFE WEBSITE:

Jimmy Styles can strike for Clive Cox in the Jean Bryant Memorial Handicap at Ascot on Friday.

He recorded his first win in an average-looking Windsor maiden in early August, before making a mockery of his official mark of 78 on his handicap debut at Newbury just two weeks later, when he routed the field by three lengths.

Second Esteem Machine, who reopposes here, and third Blackat Blackitten have both franked the form with victories since in decent handicaps.

Esteem Machine's improvement is such that he only gets a 2lb pull on Jimmy Styles for that three-length defeat at Newbury, and as Cox's charge is on a steep upward curve himself he should have no problem confirming form with that rival.

Up 11 lbs since his Newbury win, Jimmy Styles will have to show improvement against a good quality field, but he is as unexposed as any horse in the line-up and he will appreciate the testing six furlongs at Ascot.

Dangers include Richard Hannon's Edge Closer who is going for a four-timer, but he has been raised 20 lbs in the handicap since his first win over course and distance in July. Now on a mark of 97 he looks vulnerable and his run could be about to end.

He should at least set a strong gallop as he likes to do things from the front and a decent pace should definitely benefit the selection.

Bud toul me to pass this on:

"Manilou was withdrawn at Navan for no other reason than the trainer got mixed up with weights and in doing so almost caused the second biggest Battle Of The Boyne between us and him. At first we thought he was given a red for nodding at the winning post and pointing at the betting board prices and sneering at the other horses but no, just a genuine mix up.  He is heading for Gowran Park or somewhere down around the home of hurling next week."

Ok guys.....there's a horse running in a little seller on Sunday and hopefully he's going to be a nice pay day for us all. I have all the details and will pass them on a bit closer to the time.

We know there's no such thing as a good thing but this is a source that hasn't led me astray so far (usually only 2-4 selections a year - and they own the horses or are connected in some way)

Putting it up now in case you find yourself with some spare money between now and then and might put it on some stupid bet involving Liverpool in some way...

Keep it for this.

Okay....3:05 on Sunday afternoon....Uttoxeter

Dunno where he got it from but the fella that sent me the e-mail is the business.

Ok....update...

Essentially Guest kep this horse for no charge because he knew he would get a win out of it. This is expected to be the horse's last race for the trainer.

Guest has said that the horse is bursting out of his skin, but the head lad is not so upbeat. Guest also says that the seller is tougher than he thought it would be. This is worrying but the horse is forecast to be 14-1 so we don't have to break the bank to have an interest. I've been told to make a phone call tomorrow morning at 10:30 am for an update.

Guest is the trainer if you didn't know.
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Homer on October 07, 2007, 11:00:59 AM
Sehoya opens at 7/1 after being forecast for 14s which means there's already been a good bit of backing on betfair overnight.

I await word from the tipster and will pass it on when I get it.
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread

Here's the word lads....

Quote
Right....here's what I know from this morning. The man I was interested in has put 2 grand each way on the horse...but I think that's more out of obligation than anything else. The trainer is as bullish as ever although he did stress that he was worried about a horse called Mouseen. Another contact was called (not by me) to see how confident Johnston was but we've been unable to find that out as yet (call pending when we do)

Listen, we know how these things go....there's a big build up to a horse and then the f**ker does nothing. Well the people in the know have said that if the horse is ever going to win, it's going to be today and then he'll be sold on.

The people who have asked me whether to go big....I'm going to say don't go overboard, throughout the jumps season we'll get a lot more reliable info....this one is stetchy at best....in otherwards we hear confident comments from the trainer but worrying remarks from the head lad....I'm telling you everything as I get it so you can make your own minds up. I appreciate that everyone is probably going to back it....but don't go mad!

Right so I'm off to Breffni Park lads for the Cavan county final.

The horse is into 4s with Boylesports but still 7s elsewhere. I have him EW at 10.5 on Betfair but he may drift further on it.

For what its worth these are the fellas own tips for today

5pm Kelso - Legend's Lass

2:20 Kelso - Nota Liberata

And according to Richard Johnston's agent, his best hope of a win today is in the first race (Uttoxeter 2.30) with Warsaw Pact.

Jesus lads apologies once again, didn't get to see the race but I heard he didn't participate at all. The lad who passed on the tip is absolutely livid, as this was suppose to be in payback for previous favours. Thankfully I don't have the sort of cash at my disposal to split a grand on this horse as a few did. Guest has a lot to answer for especially as he had a 10/1 winner in an earlier race.

Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Homer on October 08, 2007, 10:23:07 AM
There was a lot of gambling on betfair on the night previous and the bookies always check the exchanges and start off prices accordingly. There is a possibilty that the team were therefore unhappy with 7/1 price and decided to hold out for another race but my source really should have heard this. The worst thing is that we don't even know if he is a donkey or not he didn't lose the race, he just wasn't interested in it.

Think this should be my new avatar...

George Washington no longer Louth.

Washington suffers fatal injury
George Washington, the 2000 Guineas winner in 2006, had to be put down on a miserable weekend for European hopes at America's Breeders' Cup meeting.
The Aidan O'Brien-trained four-year-old broke a leg after finishing down the field in the $5m Classic, with the race won by Curlin, under Robby Albarado.  O'Brien's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner, and 15/2 favourite, Dylan Thomas finished fifth in the Turf.
That race was won by English Channel, trained by Todd Pletcher.
Dylan Thomas will be retired to stud, but George Washington, a quirky horse well loved by the British public, met a tragic fate under Mick Kinane on a horribly muddy dirt track. After winning both the Newmarket classic and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes as a three-year-old, he had been sent to stud himself. But in March he was reported to have developed "fertility problems", and went back into training.
Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense went to his retirement after finishing out of the places in the same race.
Dylan Thomas's defeat, on the neighbouring turf course at Monmouth Park, had been the biggest talking-point from a European point of view until George Washington's fatal injury.
The losing streak for Arc winners at the Breeders' Cup continued, and O'Brien, who had Johnny Murtagh on board, said: "We always knew that soft ground could be a problem to him.
"I thought I had Dylan near his best but he was hating every second of it today."
"It was horrible ground and he's a real grass horse. He was losing his footing all the time and could never get competitive."
O'Brien had no luck at all during the weekend, as the European raiders drew their first blank since 1998.
The Ballydoyle handler's Excellent Art had been an unlucky second in the Breeders' Cup Mile to Kip Deville.
Drawn wide in stall 13, Murtagh elected to bide his time in the early stages before making stealthy progress round the outside.
But just as Murtagh asked him for his effort, he hung to his left, forcing his rider to take action.
"He handled the course OK," said Murtagh. "It was a good effort."
Henry Cecil's Passage Of Time ran a gallant race to finish third in the Filly And Mare Turf at behind Lahudood and Honey Ryder.
Alan Garcia kicked on turning into the straight and stole two lengths on Cecil's filly, who was in the perfect position but just could not quite get on terms.
Honey Ryder made great late headway to pinch second on the line.
Cecil said: "She didn't quicken, did she?
"Everything went right for her in the race, but from going well she seemed to struggle a bit at the end."
Trainer Bob Baffert waited five years to end his Breeders' Cup drought then celebrated two victories in as many hours on Saturday with favourites Indian Blessing and Midnight Lute roaring to commanding wins.
Indian Blessing had opened the day's action with an impressive wire-to-wire win in $2 million Juvenile Fillies to keep her unbeaten record intact.
Less than two hours later, Baffert and jockey Garrett Gomez teamed up again for the Sprint, Midnight Lute storming to a 4 3/4 length win over Idiot Proof. War Pass was a hugely impressive winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile under Cornelio Velasquez.
Nick Zito's charge was smartly out of the gate and just like Indian Blessing in the Fillies, he never saw another rival.
Ginger Punch got the better of Hystericalady in a titanic duel to win the Breeders' Cup Distaff at Monmouth Park.

RIP George, a sad day for horse racing. He was an amazing two year old and his Guineas win was excellent. Hopefully the small handful of mares he got in foal will carry to a full term and give him some racetrack progeny.

That track was a disgrace and looked very dangerous.

If its less than 2/1 I wouldn't call it a tip!!

Huh?  ???

Can't agree with you there LE. Of course we all like them 12/1 reeks of corruption nags, but a 5/4 tip* can often be the shout that makes your lucky 15.

* Provided it's not from me that is.  ;)

Post by: Louth Exile on October 28, 2007, 08:53:21 PM
I wouldn't be afraid of backing at evens myself, but its hardly a tip to say you think a 6/5 favourite is going to win  ::)

What I find particularly sad, for example, is you pick up a paper on champion hurdle day and Istabraq is odds on fav. The so called expert in the paper has napped it. Well done genius, you are earning your wages alright.

I thought Katchit was very impressive today at Aintree and Kauto ran a good race under big weight.
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Kentucky Blue on October 29, 2007, 10:42:00 AM
Katchit is a very likeable horse, just loves a battle and when anyone goes head to head with him, there's only gonna be one winner. Battles all the way to the line.

Kauto looked a little rusty mid race over his fences and walsh had to give him the stick a few times to keep him tuned in, but nonetheless on his seasonal re-appearance and conceding a lot of weight i was still impressed.

On the flat, Spencer is really busting his balls to stay ahead of seb sanders, intriguing battle for the title.

Manilou is going down to the Peoples Republic on Sunday.  He was in a bit of a tiff over his classification last time and had to be withdrawn much to his annoyance.  This is over hurdles and is deffo worth a punt so don't let passed form throw you off.  More news on Saturday but as of now he is walking around with the head in the air and as confident as a kerry footballer.

Duo share championship glory  from Racing Post

 

by Tom O'Ryan
.


 
IT was the battle neither Jamie Spencer nor Seb Sanders wanted to lose - and neither did.

Who'd have thought it? Who'd have guessed? After seven and a bit months, thrills, as well as a spills, twists and turns aplenty – not to mention afinal dramatic day of action – the dynamic duo finished bang level on 190 winners apiece after the title went down to the very last race.

In the most closely fought battle since Steve Cauthen had inched out Pat Eddery 20 years ago after another titanic duel, Sanders, who had gone into the final day with a one-win lead, doubled it in the most extraordinary of circumstances; aboard Incomparable, who was gifted the 6f juvenile maiden after the erratic newcomer Omnicat had swerved and unseated Eddie Ahern inside the final furlong.

Spencer, though, battled back and, with Sanders, failing by just a short head on Borderlescott, it was the 2005 jockeys' champion who ended the day in style, completing a double on Generous Thought and Inchnadamph, the latter lifting the concluding 2m 1/2f handicap to force a dead-heat to this most gripping of duels.

“It's a great result - an amazing fairy story, really, for both of us,” said Spencer.

“There's been lots of ups and downs along the way and it's been tough for us both. I've had tremendous support throughout the season, owners, trainers, and family, and have so many people to thank for helping me.”

Sanders was equally ecstatic about the outcome. “I would have been devastated to lose,” he admitted.

“It was nerve-wracking to come here today, mainly because I didn't know how I'd react if I missed out. To share it is a great relief. Now I've got to work out how I'm going to celebrate!”

Sanders, who also paid glowing tribute to everyone who had helped him in his quest - “if I started naming them all, I'd be here till midnight!” - added: “Racing is a tough game, but even though I'm a notoriously slow starter, a lot of doors opened-up for me this year, and they got wider and wider as the season wenton.”

Spencer and Sanders, who, after being presented with their trophies by outgoing champion Ryan Moore, playfully sprayed each other with champagne on the winners' rostrum, will each take time out now to recover from their exertions and reflect on their achievement.   
“I'm not going to be riding very much for a while,” said Spencer, while Sanders, who, having remarkably finished off at Wolverhampton last night, said: “I've got a riding trip to Mauritius organised later this month, but other than that, I'll be putting my feet up until the new year.”

Thanks to the Racing Post and Racing UK, two worthwhile causes benefited greatly from the championship battle. Direct Aid For Africa, Spencer's chosen charity, and When You Wish Upon A Star, the charity nominated by Sanders, both received £1,900.

Paddy Power announced that they would pay out winning bets on both riders, while Stan James paid out on Sanders, clarifying on Sunday that they had their ‘win on countback' approach had beenadvertised on the internet, text services and in betting shops for the past two weeks.

Greg Fairley, who has been race-riding for only two and a half seasons, secured the apprentices' title – won 12 years ago by Seb Sanders – with a final score of 65winners.

Hawick-born Fairley, the first Middleham-based winner since Jimmy Bleasdale 30 years ago, is attached to Mark Johnston's Kingsley House stable, where his father, Andrew is a work-rider.

Wearing a tartan tie to leave nobody in any doubts of his roots, Fairley said: “I'm particularly pleased to be the first Scot to win the title since Lee Newman (2000). It's unbelievable, really, a great thrill and I'd like to thank Mark and Deidre Johnston in particular, my parents, and everybody who has supported me throughout the season.”

Aidan O'Brien clinched the trainers' title, while Godolphin were champion owners.

Another presentation was made during the afternoon - to Kevin Darley, who, after a 30-year career, which embraced 2,500 winners, retired from the saddle on a course where he had won the St Leger, three Racing Post Trophies, and where, in 2000, he himself was crowned champion.

Ever the professional, Darley was near the front of the crowd around the winning stage, when Spencer and Sanders, were crowned joint champions. “It was a great result,” he said.

By the sound of the applause, which reverberated around Town Moor, everybody agreed with him.

It was great to watch, IMO flat racing rarely serves up high drama but there was bucket loads of it today with photo finishes and flat falls. There are very few other sports where you would see such sportsman ship. The two lads involved seemed genuinely happier to have shared the title than to have won it outright

What an unbelievable horse. I know it's a cliche, but he has the heart of a lion. I've bored you all before with the fact that he's never won when I've backed him and never lost when I haven't, so you can guess what I did today. I never expected him to win this at his age. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised to see another big Cheltenham performance from him, simply on the basis that if he's in contention at the finish he just refuses to be beaten.

Outstanding sport, watching that today.

He is 10, turning 11, a great horse, you just knew coming around the final bend that he just wouldn't give up. When you also factor in that Conor is renowned as a sympathetic jockey, it shows just how tough the auld fella is. The old dog is not finished yet  ;)
It was a pity to see a talented horse such as Detroit City lose his life, I truly believe that he wouldn't have been a champion hurdler, but nonetheless a top class animal and sad to see.

Sonnyanjoe put up another good performance for a second week in a row also and I was glad to see Kauto getting back to winning ways  :) Its great to have the national hunt season back in full swing and more good racing tommorrow with the troytown in Navan and the Beecher in Aintree.

Heading down to Puncturestown today with the bould Manilou.  He was out for a trial race with two good horses in Gowran Park earlier this week and he bate them well and they were two that would have been fancied for today if they were running.  He was still running like Damien Fitzhenry running back after taking a penalty and throwing the head up and down and laughing after passing the post and despite his form from his last races I am confident he will win today.  Certainly worth an E/W bet if you get in early and if the smirk on his face and the strut of him after the trial is anything to go by. He thinks himself he has only to turn up.

A disaster all round on the day. Bud's central heating went bust on Sunday and I never got down there and I didn't get the info until it was too late so I lost the price of the Bord Gas service man along with my shirt.  As I said, the boyo ran a trial and did well but it was decided on the day that because the ground was muck he would not be pushed which is kinda unfair on us punters.

He will be running again in two weeks time and he won't be pushed either but is preparing for a race in Feb.  In other words I am told not to back him next time out but the one after that. The row is over betwen the running and the horse needed race after race for about two months, he was actually complaininh himself about having no social life and watching all the other horses going away for weekends while he stayed at home. Sory about that is all I can say.

There is another yoke running soon called Big Zeb or Big Jeb.  Anyone know anything about a horse of this name tag ?

Big Zeb is a very useful Irish 6 yo who has been running over hurdles this year after spending last year coming close in a few bumpers.

Good form but seems to like second place a bit much: 223-122.

Here is the analysis comment on his last second place finish behind odds on fav Catch Me.

Big Zeb (B J Geraghty 2/1) ran a satisfactory race on his seasonal reappearance. Handily placed, he went in pursuit of the winner after the third last but was no match. Encouragingly, he pulled well clear of the third horse and it can’t be too long before this very highly regarded individual goes and jumps a fence.

On IrishRacing.com you can put in a couple of horses names and they will email you with declarations, confirmed starts and results for that horse(s). It's handy enough if you don't study the Racing Post every day.

Ok i got this tip last weekend and it's running in Navan on Saturday.  Horse is called Jamie's Boy and it is running in the 2.30 race. 

The fact that i got the tip a full week before the race and the person didn't even know where it was running makes me wary though.

3.15 Fairyhouse:

BIG ZEB, who came to grief at the first fence when second-favourite for Saturday's Leopardstown event won by Pedrobob, is tipped to make amends. It is noteworthy that he was a fraction shorter in the betting than Pedrobob, who won last season's County Hurdle and had the advantage of a previous run over fences, so there was plenty of confidence behind the Oscar gelding who certainly has the physique of a chaser. A course winner of a maiden hurdle last season, and afterwards a fine second to Sizing Europe at Punchestown, he warmed up for the new campaign with a satisfactory efforr behind Catch Me over hurdles at this venue.

Aye, came 3rd and had the 8th horse not been declared a non-runner there could have been some each way money from him.

However this may not have been the horse that Benny was referring to as there is another horse named Delightfully that hasn't ran since April.

I was talking to Bud Wiser just this very second and he says to wait 'till later.  He thinks there will be only 9 horses in that race but I think he will be running like the last day when he pulled the arms out of the jockey and came 9th.  Whats the ground like in Cork, was there much rain down there?

Bud says he won't be backing him, waiting for another two weeks or so.

He left the horse with far too much to do. Was 12 lengths behind going over the last and ended up get beating by a length in third. Around 5/1 for tomorrows race which provides a solid each way bet

You are better off not knowing who he is  :D He gives tips (rarely winning ones) on Today FM on a Thursday morning.

I just had a look at KK's record on Heavy ground, he has only run on heavy ground twice! Firstly when well beaten in a nothing bumper and other time was when comfortably beating Central House in a 2mile Novice hurdle at around this time of year. The trip is no problem to him, as only the brilliant Well Chief in the Arkle. It would be great to see him run well. There will be no touching Nickname today though

Post by: Hardy on January 24, 2008, 02:27:45 PM
Great run by Kicking King - made all the running and just pipped by Nickname who got up in the last 100 yards.  KK might have won but for a blunder at the second-last which knocked the momentum out of him. Geraghty did well to stay on board.

1 Nickname
2 Kicking King
3 Newmill

3 ran.

Post by: Louth Exile on January 24, 2008, 03:49:44 PM
Thought was a good run by KK, hitting the second last reminded me of him hitting the last at Kempton in King George. It is Nicknames ideal distance and ground, so on that basis it would look like great form, although I don't think Nickname was at his best, particularly given how close Newmill was in ground that is far from his ideall. Good run all the same by KK, great to at least have a good challenge at the gold cup now

Back Black Apalachi myself in the big one, e/w at 14's, got a good run for my money anyway, he has been ultra consistent in big handicap chases this season

Post by: Our Nail Loney on January 25, 2008, 02:41:11 PM
Just posted this in the Cheltenam thread os thought would put it up ere as well:

Just pointing out tomorrows card at Cheltenham-great jumps card, should be some very good pointers for the Festival with the likes of Wichita Lineman, Exotic Dancer, Katchit, Blazing Bailey and Ashely Brook all winning on the corresponding card last year.

Very good novice hurdle to start off with, Wichita won last year and went on to win the Brit Insurance Novices Hurldle on Gold Cup day. Another horse that Wichita beat last year was Massini's Maguire who went on to the Ballymore Properties Hurdle, and Tidal Bay who is currently top of the markets for the Arkle and RSA Chase (5s and 8s respectively). I like the look of Ecelith Echo in the first, did well in bumpers before switching to hurdles, looks useful enough and can go any ground and has been looking for more than 2miles.

The 2.10 sees a winner form last years festival, Burntoakboy which won the Coral Cup. Am ruling out New Little Bric after such a disappointing run in the Boylesports Gold Cup which it went off favourite (won by Tamarinbleu which is now up there for the Champ Chase after beating Twist Magic last week). My pick would be Patman Du Charmil, a creditbale third behind Tamarinbleu in the Boylesports GC and 2nd to Vodka Bleu in good race New Years Day at Cheltenham, clearly enjoys the course.

The Letheby (2.40) won by Exotic Dancer last year who went on to finish second in Gold Cup, See more Business another winner of this race and the Gold Cup. Pity Exotic Dancer has been took out of the race would have liked to see him after the King George which was a little disappointing. Leaves the racewide open though. Horses such as Our vic, Neptune Collonges, Madison du Berlais and State of Play all etered for the Gold Cup. Our Vic is also entered for the Ryanair Case for which it is prominent in the betting. I can't see past Our Vic here. Ran a cracker on St Stephens Day to finish second in the King george, a rac which Kauto totally dominated and showed his class. Pipes horses have been in great form this season as well, especially in the bigger races.

The Juvenile Novice Hurdle will give god pointers for the Triumph Hurdle at the festival. Last years winner was Katchit who went no to romp home up the hill in the triumph. Another previous winner was Hors La Loi who went no to Champion Hurdle glory. I see this race as a battle between Franchoek (5/1 triumph) and Tatenen (16/1 triumph). King versus Nicholls. I would go for Franchoek because I like the King/Thornton combo, been very good for me over the last couple years and has proved can go over the soft ground and won over the distance on three occasions.

The race I am looking forward to the most is probbly the Cleeve Hurdle (3.50) since Exotic dropped out of the Letheby. Bad memories of this race after Black Jack in it last year but sure no matter. Last years World Hurdle hero Inglis Drever out for the second time this season, will be very hard to beat given that it s a two time WH winner. Won't get it easy though as Blazing Bailey ahs looked back to his best this winnning by a good margin New Years Day from horses such as Wichita, Afsoun, Black Jack and Gaspara. Chief Dan George is niteresting, was beaten by Wichita at last years festival but the reversed the result at Aintree a few weeks later. I would go each wayn though on te ever improving Lough Derg, couldnt believe the price last week when it won at 6/1!! When you think its beat the likes of Hardy Eustace, Black Jack, Special Envoy etc...

Well theres my thoughts, as you can tell its been a pretty slow day!!!!

Yes the tri is 123 and the super is 1234 and you can box them if you want to. Did a .10 super box (total cost 2.40) took the two favs and the two long shots. The two longshots hit 1 2 then the favs -  paid off at 1600.00 not to shabby for 2.40 and then a new set off custom Pings  ;)

Just bringing this thread back to the first fence in case anyone has tips for Cheltenham, things are beginning to hot up now.

Just as a matter of interest, as regards Manilou, he was never expected to win his last three races and I thought that was understood but would have been due to have landed one in two weeks time at about 20/1.  Manilou was rated at 121 by the IRB Handicapper which by all standards put him outside of the donkey class.  I can't understand how when a tip comes up for a horse and it wins at 14/1 (twice) that ye expect the same horse to win every time, or, as suggested the jockey to be on the podium at the end of every race.

In any event, Manilou is no more after breaking a bone in his leg after landing badly on Saturday so that is the end of that - and him.

Title: How a gambling addict lost £2.1m
Post by: full back on February 14, 2008, 03:05:18 PM
How a gambling addict lost £2.1m 
By Danny Savage
BBC News 


 
Mr Calvert placed up to 20 bets a day at £30,000 a punt


Graham Calvert 

A man is suing William Hill for more than £2m, money he lost gambling after asking the bookmaker not to let him bet again.

At just 28 years old, Graham Calvert has achieved a great deal. He built his reputation as a greyhound trainer and became one of the best in Britain.

It was a job which earned him up to £30,000 a month and he built up savings of nearly £700,000.

He was even chosen to train dogs for international competitions and his reputation should have ensured a prosperous future.

But it has all been ruined by his gambling habit which has cost him his career, family life and business.

Run an internet search for the words "Ryder Cup punter" and one of the first items which appears is a story about a gambler who in 2006 placed £347,000 on America to win the Ryder Cup.

At the time it was the biggest golf bet in history and, if successful, would have returned £753,000.

But the downside for the punter was that America lost and the big problem for Graham Calvert, from Wearside, is that he was the punter. That, though, was just a fraction of his losses.

Moments of clarity

He began gambling at the end of 2005 and it wasn't just the odd fiver on the horses.

He says he didn't get a buzz out of bets of tens or hundreds of pounds. He wanted to gamble thousands.

At one stage he placed up to 20 bets a day at £30,000 a punt. But, by his own admission, in what he describes as "rare moments of clarity", he realised it was all getting out of hand and so excluded himself from a number of bookmakers.

Some of them wouldn't let him bet again while others only allowed him maximum bets of a few hundred pounds. But Mr Calvert was a big time gambler so he went in search of other bookmakers to take on his bets.

So, in May 2006, he opened an account with William Hill - one of the best known bookies in the UK.

He says up until that point he had been reluctant to gamble with them because they owned the track where he raced his dogs.

After placing some big bets he closed that account after just a few days, although he chose to re-open it two weeks later.

About a week later, after more bets totalling nearly £300,000 pounds, he closed it again and this is when he was offered what's known as "self exclusion".

This, his lawyers say, is a facility provided by bookmakers to help gambling addicts break free of their addiction.

'Account closed'

The BBC has obtained a transcript of the conversation between Mr Calvert and a team leader at William Hill.

J: "Hi Mr Calvert , you're through to John, team leader here. I understand you want to close the account?"

GC: "Yes please, yeah."

J : "Can you tell me why that is please?"

GC: "'Cos it's just far too easy to gamble."

J: "Right, so do you want to be self-excluded at this point then? Which means you will not be able to open the account with us again within the next six months?"

GC: "That's right, aye."

 
Graham Calvert is claiming William Hill was negligent

J: "Right, well, what I'll do is I'll pass on all the relevant information."

GC: "Right."

J: "The account will now be closed, you will not be able to open it within the next six months."

After a discussion about returning the remaining funds in the account to Mr Calvert, he's told by J: "But the money will be returned to your account and the account will now be closed for the next six months.

"You will not be allowed to open it under any circumstances. You will not be allowed to bet over the phone with William Hill."

But two months later, Mr Calvert did start betting with William Hill again by opening a new account in his own name.

Sacks of cash

It was through this account that he placed the huge bet on the Ryder Cup.

His downward spiral continued and ended up going into William Hill branches with sacks full of cash, using up all his savings and borrowing more than £1m from business associates.

By the time he stopped gambling with William Hill he had made a net loss of just under £2.1m, the amount he is now claiming against them in a High Court case due to start next week.

Regardless of Mr Calvert's big time gambling past his legal team claim that William Hill were negligent in allowing him to continue to gamble after agreeing that he would be self-excluded and that they should be held responsible for the consequences.

But of course there are two sides to the story. William Hill are strongly contesting the claims.

They argue that any individual choosing to place a bet does so as a matter of their own voluntary choice.

The case is likely to take a long look at the issue of duty of care. Where does the responsibility of both the gambler and the bookmaker start and finish?

It will be for the court to establish exactly how and why Mr Calvert resumed betting and whether William Hill can be held legally liable for his behaviour.

There are some good ones on YouTube - follow other the links in the pages linked above.

On the other hand, there's  this  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGE_fMuogKA&feature=related). It has to be one of the most ludicrous pieces of "animal rights" lunacy ever. One interesting observation - they use multiple clips of horses falling to illustrate the "cruelty" of racing. In each case, a jockey fell as well.

I was there that day, it fairly lit the place up when it happened!! It was a very stupid mistaken, but Loughran was still young at the time and Dessie handled it well by standing by him.

Great piece on johnny Murtagh in Todays times:
Legend in the saddle with all-round passion

SPORTING PASSIONS - JOHNNY MURTAGH : The jockey talks about his abiding love of soccer and the Meath Gaelic football team.

"I WAS always into football because I'm from Meath, which is a big GAA county. I didn't play much soccer but I grew up a Manchester United supporter. We always had games of soccer in the schoolyard and 20 minutes before training would start we'd always be kicking around playing soccer.

"I thought maybe I might play for Meath someday but I had an auntie in Blackburn so when I was about 14 I thought if I decided to go there I'd try to get an apprenticeship. There was nothing set up but I loved soccer, I loved watching it on TV and I thought 'maybe it's the thing for me'.

"In the end, I went to the apprentice school in Kildare for the racing. I got into the atmosphere down there and I knew it was for me. I got a 10-month course and continued from there.

"But I'm still a big Man United fan. One of my greatest thrills was riding Rock Of Gibraltar to win the Guineas for Alex Ferguson. I got to know him and I still speak to him. He loves racing but I'd say you'd want to do what he tells you.

"You can see the way he gets the team going and gets them motivated. What he's done at Man United, he's built it up, the training centre and everything around him. Even the way he speaks to the young players, he knows them all by their first name and he gets very involved with them.

"I haven't been going to many games but I love the atmosphere and I love going over to Old Trafford. The Premiership, the way it is at the moment, it's so big. I often look back and say 'wouldn't it be great to be part of it?' but I think I have to be quite happy with how my own career has gone.

"I play for Kildare Town in the off-season so I enjoy that. I try to keep myself fit and I like to give my best. I like to be a winner whether I'm playing a five-a-side, playing for Kildare Town or riding in the Derby.

"I started off boxing then when I was about 12 and I did it for three years. I won the Meath title three times, I won two Leinster titles and I won the All-Ireland. I boxed for Navan Boxing Club and I loved it.

"We had a good bunch of lads at that time. I remember we went to the Leinster Championships in Arklow one year and we had seven guys fighting, four or five in the final and three winners. I went on and won the Irish title that same year.

"I loved the training, I loved the competing and it's another sport I watch now with added interest. I was boxing at 45 kilos. I was a southpaw so I didn't like getting hit, I was kind of in and out.

"When I was starting off and the first round went by, my trainer was always enthusiastic, saying 'You're going great. He didn't lay a glove on you.'

"And the second round I went out and got the head boxed off myself again and the trainer was going again 'Jeez Johnny you're doing great, he didn't lay a glove on you - you're flying!' And I just said to him 'keep an eye on the ref 'cause someone's hitting me'.

"My trainer always said I'd make the Olympics. This was 1985 and he told me I could make the Olympics in 1988 but then I got the opportunity to come down to the Curragh.

"My favourite now is the boy from the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao. The heavyweights used to be the big thing but the gloss seems to have gone off that. A big favourite of mine would have been Sugar Ray Leonard. Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns, Roberto Duran - they were fights that you'd be waiting for and they'd never seem to let you down. They were just the golden era I suppose.

"But there are some great fighters out there. The thing about it is that they do so much talking beforehand. What I like about it is you can't run away and you can't hide. It's just you, another guy and the ref in there.

"So I enjoyed it. It was great for any young lad, especially the training. You know you meet these hardy lads out on the street and they're all mouth. But when you get into the ring, they can't mouth any more. For myself it was good discipline as well. You wouldn't be quick to lose your temper because if you did, that only led to one thing and that was getting a real hiding."

Johnny Murtagh is a flat jockey and recently landed the biggest job in racing - number one rider to Aidan O'Brien and the Coolmore operation.

Sometimes the yard itself leaves it a bit late to have a punt and when they finally attempt to, they find that the value is long gone and so they decide to just send the horse out for a jog and hold off the big run for the next time.

It happens all to often that I have been looking through the results and spotted winners I'd been tipped on recent outings. These horses are usually followed by a comment like "found something extra today"  :D

From the racingpost


"Nina Carberry, arguably, produced the ride of the meeting when getting JAQUOUILLE up in the dying stride to deny a gallant outsider with only a length and a half separating the first-five home. The winner, a faller four out in a similar event at Leopardstown, had a previous course win to his credit as a novice. He was produced wide by his rider and stayed on relishing every yard of this trip. Arthur Moore intends bringing the 11-year-old to Punchestown next month and longer term he might consider theFoxhunters at Cheltenham next year."

I actually started a system earlier this year that basically involved following Nina's rides in bumpers, it was showing some promise for a while but I was forced to abandon ship due to Noel Meade's unprecedented bad run. Might start paper trading for a while before possibly giving it another chance.

I'd say it was thanks to Noel Meade's recent run of bad luck that Pandorama was a half decent price on Monday.   The bookies didn't take the same chance with Jered yesterday though unfortunately.

Some bookies definitely paid out on 5 places alright but not all. For instance Ladbrokes shops paid out on 5 places but they only paid out on 4 places on bets done online.

As regards where you stand now, I'm not too sure but there's no harm in checking if they did in fact pay the 5 places and if so you might as well chance your arm rewriting a new docket and telling them you lost the original.

To cliam your winnings you do not have to have the docket.  You can go to the bookmaker and tell him what day you placed the bet.  They will probably ask you to rewrite it and if it matches will pay you.

With a handicap of 16 runners or more the normal with all bookies is to 1/4 the odds e/w on the first four. Paying 5 places is just something that some of the larger firms have brought is an incentive for big races like the nationals. There may be some firms paying first 6 on the english national!! so it is always worth a wee look at oddschecker.com before doing any bets in the big races to see what specials there are

Nicked from Allister at neigh ...a good trends analysis.

I think this year will be the hardest ever in which to apply a trends analysis to the big race and I have to say right at he outset that unlike other years, there is no ‘absolute’ qualifier anyway. Well, not yet at least. Last year Silver Birch did the analysis proud, despite not looking an obvious candidate, but this year I can see one of the ‘big trends’ going and something I have not considered going in. Still, I hope that what follows here helps some of you shorten your shortlists even further and I definitely hope it will spark some healthy debate.

Best to start with the annual trawl through the trends themselves. I still think that you can be too prescriptive about these, so I’m going to allow leeway here and there (no qualifiers otherwise) and perhaps try and suggest likely trend-breakers.

1. AGE - No runner aged seven or younger has triumphed since 1940, and none older than 12 has even placed since 1969. Stick between the ages of 8 and 12.

2. A WIN OVER AT LEAST 3M - Again, it's been a very long time since the winner has failed to win over at least 3 miles prior to this and this is one trend that I think it would be unwise to ignore. One day, some untried type may come storming home, but I won’t be collecting on the winner that day.

3. WEIGHT - Not impossible to win from out of the handicap but that certainly won’t be an issue this time. Only 14 since the war have hauled over 11st round and last year’s places were all filled with sub-11st runners. Frankly, if there was a year when this was to be broken completely, you’d have to give this year a squeak because the quality most definitely has risen to the top. Phil Smith has attempted to get as many into the handicap as possible, but has compressed the weights so tightly that it’s quite possible that something near the head of the weights might run very well. I’m not keen to get involved with any runner carrying more than 11-1 simply because the pace of this event has increased as the fences have become easier and it’s a big ask to run with the choke out under a large weight.

4. NOVICES – Wouldn’t have considered backing a novice or second-season chaser until Numbersixvalverde won, but if they have won a respected handicap chase from a big field, then they could win this too. If they haven’t, then historically they shouldn’t win this.

5. CLASS 1 WIN AT LEAST - 13 of the last 14 winners won a Class 1 race at some stage prior to running in the National. The one who didn't was Lord Gyllene, who won the Uttoxeter National Trial which is of course now a Class 1 race.

6. HUNTERS – As most of these have failed to satisfy the previous trend, I don’t give them much chance. They are not used to this type of race and haven't got the class to win a top handicap.

7. PREVIOUSLY FINISHED, BUT UNPLACED IN THE NATIONAL - Any decent jumper could make it round in their own time, but only those that can do it at pace stand a chance of winning. I know someone previously pointed out a winner who’d previously run unplaced on the old Neigh, but I can’t remember who it was or when and I won’t be backing any who fit this profile. Falling or unseating has no such stigma attached.

8. ABILITY TO HANDLE A BIG FIELD – The last 14 winners at least had all previously won a chase with at least 12 runners and that is a good point to make your cut-off. The horse has to be able to go for its gap confidently and keeping up the momentum is pretty vital.

9. PLACED AT LEAST THIS SEASON – The last 20 winners of this all had at least one placed run under their belt the same season. Thirteen of that twenty won, but they’re mostly confined to pre-2000 renewals and only three since then have. Only three Irish runners failed to place in a chase of some description that season, namely Bobbyjo, Pappillon and Numbersixvalverde, but all three either won or were placed in a hurdles race. I would ignore any runner that has not at least placed in a NH race over some kind of obstacles other than in hunter chases during the current campaign.

There are some other ‘trends’ that are contentious, but are certainly worthy of consideration, not least because they have in the past steered me away from some costly bets.

10. BLINKERS – Only Earth Summit has won with headgear in the last 20 years. I really don’t know what to make of this statistic, but it scuppers my ideas of the winner this year, as you’ll see below. I think this trend more than any other is open to interpretation and it doesn’t necessarily preclude a runner from victory, although you’d hate to think your money was riding on a horse that really didn’t fancy it.

11. WHITBREAD GOLD CUP AND SANDOWN - Of the last 14 National winners, only two had ever contested a chase at Sandown prior to this, and they finished unplaced and pulled-up. No horse has ever won the National AFTER wining the Whitbread. Again, this seems a bizarre statistic; why have so many trainers simply avoided running at Sandown prior to winning this?

12. MINIMUM OF 4 RUNS THIS SEASON - I'm not convinced about this one, but the last 12 winners had all achieved this, so it's worth looking at if you can't whittle enough with the rest of the trends. This was starting to worry me about Parsons Legacy, but he’s now a non-runner anyway. Miinehoma was the last one to have less than four runs that season.

13. RAN WITHIN 42 DAYS OF THE BIG RACE – 19 of the last 20 managed this and only Hedgehunter won from outside this pattern, taking a 49-day holiday before the big one. I suppose the conclusion is that the horse is well and will be race-fit if we have seen it recently. People often don’t want to back runners that have competed at Cheltenham but Silver Birch turned this over last year and Hedgehunter was second in the Gold Cup before running second here to Numbersixvalverde. Perhaps this year carries a warning in that so many were strung out at the end of races at the Festival. The ground was slower than normal and perhaps those who ran there will be feeling the ill effects of hard races if they line up in any event at Aintree during National week.

14. FRENCH BREDS – No winners in this race have been bred in France. I tried to make a case for it last year and drew another blank from that particular avenue. Looking at this year’s field doesn’t inspire me that one will, but Butler’s Cabin would be the obvious candidate if it weren’t for his weight.


I've done a little bit of digging and would like to say the following about the following:


HEDGEHUNTER (IRE) - Perennial campaigner in this race, but with the years now catching up, despite that good show last time in Ireland, it would be asking an awful lot for him to shoulder this kind of weight.

MR POINTMENT (IRE) – An advert for not running in The Becher after he was lumped with what is realistically a stopping weight. There’s no doubting his class for this event and his liking for these fences, but you’d have to think he’s likely to get a little tired with his running style and this burden. He may be the one for those of you looking for the weight trend to be broken, but not for me.

OLLIE MAGERN – An admirable and much-loved character who will undoubtedly try to go from the front in this. There’ll certainly be no hanging around, but you can’t help thinking that this is a decision based on a career on the down slope. Certainly this weight makes him unappealing as a trends selection.

SIMON – I must say I’m bemused by this one’s campaign. You’d think after running a blinder last year, connections would have done something to ensure his handicap mark was a little more protected. In fact he’s been competitive in more than one race this season and, as he’s not over big, asking him to shoulder this weight round this course is too much in my opinion.

BUTLER'S CABIN (FR) – Would have to overcome the fact that he was bred in France, but his win in the Irish Grand National and at Cheltenham last season marks him out as a smart stayer. His handler seems to know his capabilities very well as he managed that win in Ireland just a handful of weeks after virtually collapsing at Cheltenham. Frankly, I’m more worried about the erratic form of his stable than his trends profile, but he will find his allotted weight tough in what looks a very open and hard-to-fathom race.

SLIM PICKINGS (IRE) – Certainly a danger to all based on his run last year, but based on his profile this season he should not win. For a start, he’s been asked to carry more weight and that comes off the back of a season where he’s done nil over fences. Had run over fences six times by this stage last season and fiddling about over hurdles hasn’t set him any easier a task in this renewal. Still hasn’t beaten more than six others in a chase.

CHELSEA HARBOUR (IRE) – Just edged over the cusp of what is acceptable in terms of weight and was a novice last year. What he has done is beat a field of at least twelve in a chase and that has been the one factor that negated the seeming inexperience of second season chasers in this. I’d be interested if he runs, but he wouldn’t be a confident selection.

SNOWY MORNING (IRE) – People were quick to crab his chance after what seemed a very disappointing run in Ireland last time, but from a trends point of view, his profile would be largely unattractive as he was a novice last year and has failed to beat a field of twelve.

ALEXANDER TAIPAN (IRE) – I know I included this one when the weights were published, but I have very little inkling as to why. I doubt he’ll run, but if he does, I doubt he’ll win.

BEWLEYS BERRY (IRE) – Will undoubtedly be a popular choice given a bold show last year, but has plenty of weight considering the fact that he hasn’t won a Class 1 chase. The stable had a great Cheltenham Festival but I think from a trends point of view, he’s readily dismissed.

MCKELVEY (IRE) – Is bound to be a popular choice following a brave second last year when seemingly injuring himself in the race. The fact that he wears blinkers is somewhat contentious stats negative but more alarmingly, Peter Bowen has only been able to get two runs over hurdles into him and he managed only eighth and unplaced. Considering the last twenty winners of this at least placed in the same season that has to be a huge negative.

POINT BARROW (IRE) – Went off favourite last year and has again made the trends shortlist. The wearing of blinkers would be seen as a negative in the context of statistical trends, but left off he would be a clear qualifier. Has had a largely disappointing season and looked tremendously one-paced on more than one occasion, but I was reminded of last year when comments about lack of speed were thrown Silver Birch’s way. It’s often best to ignore the visual impression created in three-mile sprints round Haydock and remember this is a unique event. Has a chance, but would be high enough in the weights all the same.

D'ARGENT (IRE) – Might carry some novelty money considering his colour, but is actually a fairly strong trends runner but for the fact that he normally wears blinkers. I’m unsure as to why he’s been left in at this late stage because King has stated clearly at least twice that he doesn’t consider this one an Aintree type, whatever that is. Personally, I think he has a fine chance if lining up, but I would be much happier if they left the headgear off. Certainly, he’s currently at an ante post price that would encourage a smallish wager if interested.

CLOUDY LANE – I almost pressed the button in the autumn when I first started looking at he race and am now hoping I don’t regret not doing it. He will surely start as favourite after what seems a perfect preparation for the race. However, he has not managed a Class 1 win and this is something shared by winners of the race for a quite some time now. In addition, coming off the back of three wins doesn’t sit well with using previous winners as a guide.

CORNISH SETT – I really wish he could have had a recent run as that’s the only thing I don’t like about his profile. He wouldn’t leap out as an obvious candidate but, when you trawl through his trends profile, everything bar that long layoff points towards a very good chance in this. His finest hour was undoubtedly The Vodafone Chase two seasons ago and he ran well enough in last term’s RP Chase. The right age and off a fair mark, he might run well at a big price. I would certainly not put anyone off a small bet now at what are still very big odds, but I am concerned that something may have gone wrong in The Welsh National and he may not line up.

OVER THE CREEK – Normally I’d have had a line straight through this one as his novice status wrecks his chance here. However, he’s not the average novice. I’d similarly disregarded Numbersixvalverde a couple of years ago, but on reflection really should have been happy to bet since he’d won a big field handicap chase. Then McKelvey ran a stormer last year too and, in a year when five-year-olds took both The Champion Chase and Champion Hurdle, to leave out a runner who has run well in big fields already might be dangerous. When you consider what Hot Weld and Butler’s Cabin have subsequently done after their runs in the NH Chase at Cheltenham, then there’s definitely some hope for Over The Creek here. He may go off at a much bigger price than if Comply Or Die wasn’t in the race.

COMPLY OR DIE – I’d been concerned that he hadn’t dealt with a big handicap field but The Eider put paid to that. The form of the race (or rather the depth of quality) has been queried recently, but there’s no doubting this one has developed into the obvious trends horse for the race. His style of running will keep him up and out of trouble but I hope he doesn’t get going too far out. My real concern is the application of blinkers. Earth Summit has done it, but it’s not common and I’m really hoping that connections take a look at this issue and dispense with them for this race at least. Otherwise, I think he has a great chance and ticks in all the right boxes.

PATSY HALL (IRE) – Might develop into a leading fancy considering his trainer’s reputation, but was a novice last year and had no more to give when pulled-up in last year’s Irish National. I think a hard race at Cheltenham will have done his chances here no good at all and that in itself looked like a tired finish.

ROYAL COUNTY STAR – Favourite for the Irish equivalent at time of writing, but if Tony Martin decided to have a try in this, he would have to win The Irish National en-route before he would become a trends qualifier. Ran off 124 in The Troytown, but would be off 140 here which doesn’t seem that appealing to be honest.

HOMER WELLS – Another engaged in The Irish National, but his chance here would be an obvious one if allowed to line up. By lining up at Fairyhouse he removes the only really strong negative statistic against him, which was time since last run. However a combination of a big effort there, his trainer’s fitting of blinkers in his last run and the referral to a need for ‘testing ground’, would be enough to put me off a bet.

PHILSON RUN – Hasn’t really had enough runs this year to fit into a winner’s profile, but didn’t last year either and still managed a staying-on fourth  at a huge price. That price won’t be on offer this time around and the trainer has expressed a preference for softer ground than he’s likely to get this time. In his defence, he ran a blinder behind D’Argent at Warwick, but he was outpaced whenever the winner wanted that day and you get the feeling he’s going to be too slow to win here too.

OSSMOSES – It’s the number of runs that puts me off this one and the fact that he’s another confirmed mud lark. I don’t actually think he’ll line up unless there’s a monsoon.

BALLYCASSIDY – ‘If only’ is the phrase that best applies and anyone reading the trends analysis two years ago would know why. It’s unlikely that he’ll get in but if he did, I’d definitely have a bet. If he’d stayed up in 2006 who knows what might have happened?

In conclusion, I think the shortlist should contain the following:
Comply Or Die, Over The Creek, D’Argent, Point Barrow and Cornish Sett

If any of these drops out (and I think D’Argent and Cornish Sett are the most likely) then the task looks a little more straightforward. I’ve noticed a general shortening on Comply Or Die in the last week and we may be looking at he main danger to Cloudy Lane in terms of betting by the day of the race. Strangely for this analysis, there are no clear qualifiers and I am the least confident I have ever been in trends finding the winner as all those on the shortlist have minor questions to answer. But if the blinkers come off Comply Or Die or Point Barrow, I’ll be going in again.

If a 'key trend' is to go, I think it will be either Butler's Cabin or Over The Creek who does it, or it might be one of the minor trends with a blinkered runner winning for the first time in ten years.

I’m hoping those of you interested in trends (and those who dislike them) will comment on the thread and help steer us onto the winner.

a fully comprehensive summary of the grand national carrier but it may still be down to the old pin and paper techniques. I  myself will do a bit of duching on cloudy lane and die or comply . I really fancied cloudy until his last outing when his jumping wasn't the greatest and ultimately i think this will let him down. But it could all go tits up at the first of even the chair.

Backed Mr Pointment on betfair tonight at 26/1 (16s generally with the bookies). If you can excuse his last run he has to have a chance despite carrying 11st 11. He was very impressive winning over the national course back in November. Cloudy is a deserving favourite but I won't be backing him at such short odds.

This is just plain wrong. :( I wish these idiots would find something better to do with their time. From the Racing Post this afternoon...

Quote
The Grand National at Aintree, due to be run this Saturday April 5th, is in danger after some shrewd legal work by animal rights protesters.

The group known as Animal Aid had lawyers investigate the small print in the Rules and Regulations of the British Horseracing Authority. They found that the Grand National fences are against the regulations set out in Section 43, Paragraphs 16(a), 16(b) and 16(c), which lists what materials can be used to make up a fence. Strangely, spruce is not one of them and every fence on the Grand National track is at least some part spruce.

Aintree's clerk of the course Andrew Tulloch reported this morning: "Unfortunately it is true that the Grand National fences go against the stipulations set out in the BHA regulations and they have done so for the last 42 years. We have been in touch with the BHA about changing the regulations in time for the race but there is a pending legal challenge against it. Whatever happens, the Grand National will be run, even if it means we have to bypass all the fences but we hope it won't come to that."

The prospect of a Grand National without jumps will dismay many purists of the sport but the final outcome will depend on the results of a legal council meeting on Wednesday morning. Also at risk are the John Smith's Fox Hunters' Chase on Thursday and the John Smith's Topham Chase on Friday.

A four and a half mile flat race?  :'(

A sad day for National Hunt fans.

Post by: Hardy on April 03, 2008, 09:24:56 AM
Bcarrier has pretty much covered it above with neigh.co.uk’s assessment of the stats. I’d interpret some of the stats and trends slightly differently to neigh and doing that, I come up with four horses that tick all the boxes in the stats and trends for previous winners: D’Argent, Cornish Sett, Comply Or Die and Philson Run. (There’s also Ossmoses, which could possibly get into the race but, even if he does, seems to perform only in the muck, so I’m eliminating him). Philson Run is definitely in the race at this stage, as Ollie Magern has pulled out, but I’m eliminating him as a potential winner on the basis that I can’t see how he can go three places better this year, carrying three lbs. more. And the stats are against him – a placed horse hasn’t gone on to win the National at least as far back as 1990. He has to have a great chance of a place again, though. He’s run well on both his outings and he was finishing well last year, though 7.2 on Betfair is not that attractive.

As the fella says above, there are so few qualifiers this year under the stats and trends for previous winners that horses that come near meeting all criteria must come into the picture. There are nine other horses that meet all criteria but one. Of these, six fail on the weight criterion, carrying 11st. or more. Of this six, I’d eliminate without question Knowhere, Mr Pointment and Simon, which all carry 11-7 or more. I don’t think it can be done. There’s a case to be made for Butler’s Cabin, Vodka Bleu and Mckelvey, which are all just over the 11st. limit. I’m sticking with the stats, though, and eliminating them from the win consideration also, but it makes sense to consider them for the place, though only Vodka Bleu comes near to representing any real place value (11.5 on Betfair).

The other three horses failing on only one stat have failed to win a Class 1 race in their careers. They are Cloudy Lane, Mon Mome and Idle Talk. Cloudy Lane is a derisory price at 5/1, but I’d consider Mon Mome and Idle Talk for a place – both have been placed more than once in Class 1 company, though Mon Mome’s place odds are a bit skinny – 9 on Betfair. Idle Talk is 16.

So I’m suggesting that only the following horses are likely to figure in the contest:
D’Argent
Cornish Sett
Comply Or Die
Philson Run
Butler’s Cabin
Vodka Bleu
Mckelvey
Cloudy Lane
Mon Mome
Idle Talk
And Knowhere, Mr Pointment and Simon may also manage to hump their weight around and threaten for places.

I’m sticking with the stats and I’ve backed D’Argent, Cornish Sett and Comply Or Die for the win. Cornish Sett at 100/1 and 180 on Betfair is the outstanding value in the race for me and I’m also placing him at 27, though I’m a bit worried that the high price may reflect something I don’t know about. The only other place value I see is Idle Talk at 16, Vodka Bleu at 11.5 and I can’t ignore Philson Run, as he’s the best bet in the race to get around – he doesn’t fall and has only ever hit the deck when brought down – and will be going as well at the finish as at the start.

Finally, Ardaghey and Dunbrody Millar are the next two in line to get into the race if there are any defections. Both score on all statistics but one  - they have failed to win a Class 1 race, but both have been placed at that level. They are at very high place odds at present on Betfair, on the basis that as of now, they’re not in the race – maybe worth a punt at 55 and 100 respectively. Indeed at 420 and 660 for the win, they’re probably worth a Euro or two on a gamble that one or two may pull out.

I’m off to Spain now for a week. If one or more of the above come up, it might be four weeks.

As for today -

Might go against Inglis Drever & back Kicks For Free instead, maybe e/w depends on the price later on. But could easily change my mind & go for Inglis Drever again, best horse in the race but has never won at this meeting!

Kauto is skinny enough, can see him going off at slightly bigger price than he currently is (4/6), people will have their doubts after Cheltenham, but for me should win with abit in hand. Depending on price, I might double him up with another Nicholls horse in the 2.55 Taunton LEADING ATTRACTION - another short price fav but is a shoe-in.

And finally will be backing Calestial Halo in the 3.10 & if the day goes according to plan will have a go Leslingtaylor in the 4.20!

Agree with you there on Kauto boojangles.

If this race had of been run before the Gold Cup Kauto would be 1/5 or so in this race. People are just assuming that he has lost his touch but in my opinion he just came up against and absolute machine in Denman. Sure Monets Garden pipped him before but Kauto was giving him a good stone and at level weights today I'm sure he'll win with some relative ease.

Going with a wee treble myself today

Inglis Drever @ 7/5
Kauto Star @ 4/5
Franchoek @ 9/4

Thought he gave it a poor ride (although Nicholl's susequently taking the blame for tactics does clear him somewhat),  I would be of the opinion that it's the jockeys job to get the horse round no matter how suspect the horse's jumping is - that's what they are paid for.  He hit at least 4 fences, nearly landing on top of the second last.

Has Ruby been elevated to the pantheon of untouchables then?

Thought he gave it a poor ride (although Nicholl's susequently taking the blame for tactics does clear him somewhat),  I would be of the opinion that it's the jockeys job to get the horse round no matter how suspect the horse's jumping is - that's what they are paid for.  He hit at least 4 fences, nearly landing on top of the second last.

Has Ruby been elevated to the pantheon of untouchables then?

WHAT lol

Did the horse get round... um yes! job done then in your eyes?

If you had of watched Ruby over his career riding for Mullins or AJ Martin you would know he has never ran like that before... last time you will ever see Kauto Star run like that ... the horse would also have won had it not been for the error two out.

In your opinion he gave it a poor ride... in what way did he give it a poor ride, by riding to instructions... surely not his fault then...

.. but I’m eliminating him as a potential winner on the basis that I can’t see how he can go three places better this year, carrying three lbs. more.

.....Of these, six fail on the weight criterion, carrying 11st. or more. Of this six, I’d eliminate without question Knowhere, Mr Pointment and Simon, which all carry 11-7 or more. I don’t think it can be done. There’s a case to be made for Butler’s Cabin, Vodka Bleu and Mckelvey, which are all just over the 11st. limit. I’m sticking with the stats, though, and eliminating them from the win consideration also, but it makes sense to consider them for the place, though only Vodka Bleu comes near to representing any real place value (11.5 on Betfair).
 
Its gas how a few pounds can seemingly make such a huge difference, when the animals themselves often weigh over 70 stones....

What do you mean " ..you would know he has never ran like that before??"  Ruby or Kuato ??? The hold up horse is not Ruby's style, it's Tony Martins style and it f**ks up more than it suceeds, prime example Pyscho at Cheltenham.  Also Ruby doesn't hold up horses, Ruby rides how he's told to ride!  I'm sick losing money on the AJ/Ruby connection(and wont be in the future).  I agree he would have won but for the error two out - Ruby's error IMO.

In the same position myself.I never backed Kauto until the Gold Cup this year(was always an Exotic Dancer man) when I decided I was an Idiot for not backing it for the previous year and a half and threw 250 on it at evens.Easy money in my eyes. ???
Then doubled it up today with Binocular.Il never back Kauto again as good a horse as it is.
Binocular put in a fine performance today and Im sure JP McManus is eyeing a run in the Champion Hurdle now.

The hold up horse is not Ruby's style, it's Tony Martins style and it f**ks up more than it suceeds, prime example Pyscho at Cheltenham. 

Psycho was a poor ride at Cheltenham, there is hold up and then there is leaving a horse with way to much to do, which was the case in point.

Your comments about Ruby and Kauto are a classic case of someone talking through their pockets!! Kauto has not become a bad horse over night and Ruby is the finest jockey riding today

Horses dont go well next time out after cheltenham!! simple point 2 remember!

Winners of the first three races all ran at Cheltenham!
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: bennydorano on April 04, 2008, 09:14:12 AM
I've always wondered why Tony Martin trains all his horses to be 'hold up' horses, surely some horses have a different mental make up and are front runners/whatever. 

I would certainly disagree that Ruby is the best around at the minute, but it's all a matter of opinion (if you exclude AP's 10? in a row ;))  Davy Russell for me.

If form is anything to go by we would b expecting Captain Cee Bee(after Binocular pissing home yesterday),Albertas Run and Master Minded to win well,I just dont think it will b as easy tho!
McCoy is quoted as saying that he didnt give Albertas Run a good ride at Cheltenham(and still won)-7/4 seems good to me!
Any opinions lads?
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: thewobbler on April 04, 2008, 12:23:07 PM
Cloudy Lane is a very just favourite, but at a price that mean each way plundering is a better option. If he gets through the first 6 fences, it's hard to see him getting beaten though.

Even given a big weight, Simon should finish in the top 4. Everything apart from his weight says he can win.

At bigger prices, Philson Run will stay forever and with softer ground than last year, might even go better than his fourth then.

The one that really interests me though is Naunton Brook, who also has the proper profile to go well, and at a huge price (generally 66/1).


Simon - 1 pt win
Philson Run - 1pt e/w
Naunton Brook - 1pt e/w


One other thing. I was told a stat that over half the runners this year will be wearing visors, blinkers or cheekpieces. Which should mean single-vision carnage at the first few fences. Backing less than 10 finishers looks a good bet.

2.00 Battlecry, getting 7 pounds from Albertas Run on a track that should suit him better (5/1 compared to the 6/4 fav)
4.20 Pieret Lunaire, getting a stone from Captain Cee Bee, also has good form with Binocular and was held back from Cheltenham with this in mind (9/2 compared to 6/5 fav)

Jaysus Benny you really have it in for Ruby, Masterminded was a tired horse who was beaten by over 10 lengths, you could have whoever you wanted on board that horse, he wouldn't have won.

You didn't see the peach of a ride Ruby gave the winner of first I bet!!! (wish he hadn't done  :'()

Horses dont go well next time out after cheltenham!! simple point 2 remember!
Winners of the first three races all ran at Cheltenham!

any horse that has won at cheltenham, has had a poor run at aintree louth excile!! same fact every yr!

If you look back at the original quote downtown you will see that you did not say cheltenham winners!! Four winners on Thursday and four winners on Friday had runs at Cheltenham. If you are saying that the Cheltenham form didn't hold up, you are right. None more so than VoyPur and Masterminded having a reversal in distance of 29 lengths  :o
In what has not been a classic year for 2 mile novice chasers tidal bay stands out by winning at both meetings. Although, so did Our Vic and Binocular was not far off winning at both tracks.

I got a run for my money in the national, even if no return. I am just glad that my bet of the day was Al Eile, 11/4 was some price  :)
Coming up to Beechers the second time I had Chelsea Harbour (16/1), Butlers Cabin (16/1) and D'Argent (25/1) all up in the van and expecting to at least pocket some place money, thats the luck of it, thank god VC were doing a faller/free bet special, so only Chelsea Harbour cost me. After a disastrous Cheltenham it was nice to come out of Aintree quids in.

The first five horse home in the National were all Irish Bred and all had Irish Jockeys, with 2nd, 3rd and 4th also being trained in owned in Ireland. So even though we didn't win it this year it was still a great Irish performance and you couldn't begrudge the winning connections (especially those of you who backed it), they are more than entitled to a win in it.

Although not strictly a tip, if any of you can get a decent price on Glenavon against Armagh, I would advise you to take it

Heard something similar about an irish league game last week but the result went the other way. Wouldnt pay too much heed. Its only trebles and upwards on the Irish league in any case.

Sadler´s Wells retired from stud duties

Legendary sire Sadler´s Wells is to be retired from stud duties due to declining fertility.
The decision was made by the team at Coolmore Stud, where the 27-year-old son of Northern Dancer will remain in retirement having stood there since the end of the 1985 Flat season.
Sadler´s Wells was champion sire in Britain and Ireland a record-breaking 14 times, including 13 years in succession.
Coolmore manager Christy Grassick said: "I think Sadler´s Wells is generally acknowledged as the best sire Europe has ever seen and we feel very privileged to have been associated with him.
"Despite his advancing years, he is still in remarkably good condition and I hope he enjoys a long and happy retirement.
"His influence will be felt for many years to come and in Galileo, Montjeu and High Chaparral, we are delighted to have his three best sons at Coolmore."
Sadler´s Wells, sired by Northern Dancer and out of Fairy Bridge, was foaled in the United States in 1981.
Trained by the masterful Vincent O´Brien, he enjoyed a very successful racing career that saw him win many of the highest-profile prizes.
Counting the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial, Irish 2000 Guineas, Eclipse and Irish Champion Stakes among his haul as a three-year-old alone, O´Brien´s bay was making the headlines long before finding his true niche in the racing game.
When retired to stud, Sadler´s Wells had won six of his 11 starts and earned over ¿575,000 in prize money.
Really hitting the heights as a stallion, the virtually incomparable Sadler´s Wells sired over 200 stakes winners and well over 60 Group One scorers.
Even a scaled-down list of the major players he has produced makes for sensational reading, with the likes of Montjeu, Galileo, High Chaparral and Yeats all featuring prominently.
Further back, in the late 1980s, In The Wings, Old Vic and Opera House were all flying the flag in top-flight company.
Along with those superstars, he sired plenty of top-notch fillies as well, including 1000 Guineas, Oaks and Irish Derby winner Salsabil and the exceptionally-talented Alexandrova.
The latter, trained by Aidan O´Brien, secured the Epsom, Irish and Yorkshire Oaks in a sensational three-year-old campaign.
His versatility as a sire was also highlighted perfectly by triple Champion Hurdle winner Istabraq, who won no fewer than 23 of his 29 races over timer to accrue well over ¿1million in winnings.
Sadler´s Wells ran in the colours of the late Robert Sangster.
His son Ben said: "He was a phenomenal horse. His record as a stallion is unbelievable and it is the end of a very distinguished career.
"His legacy will live on through his sons and daughters and their sons and daughters.
"He has the likes of Montjeu and Galileo among many others to continue his bloodline.
"I don´t remember much about his racing days as I was only a child myself, but he showed he was a classy and tough performer.
"He was a son of Northern Dancer and he has continued that legacy as I´m sure his progeny will continue his.
"A number of his sons and daughters will probably be lining up at Epsom this year and for the next couple of years to come and his influence will continue."

Now he was some stud! Father to High Chapparal, my favourite flat horse of all time and the Legend that was Istabraq

Was winding my way back from Enniscrone this evening when I got a blast from the past. He was in great form celebrating Laois' win with half a team and I told him our lads had done likewise in a club game. He then went on to tell me about a little village in Mayo at the foot of Croagh Patrick. I thought he was going on a pilgrimage but he assured me he was more focussed on Listowel tomorrow. He told me to let his old friends know so here it is. Any time you hear murMUR like this from our Bud its worth RISKing a few bob.

excuse me if i'm wrong but is the derby not for 3-year-olds only therefore meaning a horse can't run in it twice. #

Derby now being managed by Bertie Ahern who has landed the big job in sport he talked about when booted out of he left government.
Has decreed that dead horses and owners of dead horses are welcome.
De ting is dat de horse may be dead or m-may not or not be known if he d-died or de owner may have died or if he didn't den dat's not de answer and de derby was confidential so it was and de horses didnt want to disclose dey were in it if dey were and de winnings was all sterling round sums and I gave bet to de bookie and he gave me it back and dere is no record or betting slip as we are friends and de whole ting coulddnt be simpler...

A few weeks ago twelve of us were down in Dingle and Ballyferriter.  I had a tip for a horse (Castle Bar Sling) and on the morning when we all got up with sore heads we all went into a bookie shop and we all intended to put 40 euro win on the nag but could not find it listed to run (at Killarney) in the papers.  The Irish girl on the desk said it was not listed for any race that day or in declarations for the next.  We insisted the horse was running.

Off we trudged and promptly drank the €480 collectively before heading to Ballyferriter that is now a tumbleweed town with the Post Office, Supermarket and even the Garda station closed and no paper shop  The useless RTE Teletext had not got the following days runners so we collectively drank about €800 and having checked The Star that we found in a pub the horse was not listed in that evenings runners.  On the way back from Ballyferriter we stopped at Foxy Johns pub to find half of Dingle drunk and they all bought us drink for giving them a tip for a horse that won at 14/1 but some of them backed at 16's and higher.

How in the name of Jaysus are you supposed to win money in a bookies in Kerry unless you are from Kerry - or unless you are backing Kerry to beat the Dub's.  The excuse we were given was that the papers in Ballyferriter do not have the late runners !  The girl in the bookies just laughed at us. Surely the declarations must be entered with the race officials and she should have known, I mean on Horse Tracker you can get notice up to a week in advance.  Shit happens I suppose  >:(

Today I am going to stick a fiver each way on a horse in Leopardstown that never ran a race in its life, first time out and staright off the gallops.
At 16/1 it has as good a chance as the boys in the BLACK and AMBER and the boys from the LEE contesting this years All-Ireland.   Not a solid Tip(p) though but well worth an interest.

Does anyone think the GAA Discussion Board should buy a horse !!  It would only cost 100 of us about €200 each and we could graze him in Croke Park for half the year and sell the horseshit to Heffo and Indiana to go with all that they talk about the Dub's.

Can ye start picking a name for our DB horse, selector of the best DB related name,  ie, whereisdrici, and the colours he will run in etc gets a free share.

Im sticking with a fiver each way.        I mean it never ran before for gods sake so why put your house on it.  I did it in a double with Laois to win Leinster.     Should be an ok bet but I am a bit worried about the horse.

Which was the bigger odds Bud, the horse or Laois? :P

I've placed a few bob e/w for the craic.

On the horse that is.

I wouldn't waste any money on Laois  ::)

Revenge for the showboating and pointing at the scoreboard.  Can't wait.

The going is gonna be soft in Leopardstown which should suit the litle filly.
The going is going to be hard in Croker which will suit Laois.

The horse that I swore I'd never back again is out tonight -Rowan River 6.40@ Windsor.  Got it at a guaranteed 20's at luchtime, could be worth a few bob ew at that price.  It's disappointed connections more often than not, but is allegedly flying in training.

Went to Sandown for a stag party when I was 17. Drank 8 pints of Caffreys for breakfast, got to the racecourse, fell asleep in the grandstand, got ejected by the Old Bill just as they were lining up for the first, went back to the bus and slept it off, returned to the track just in time to see them crossing the line in the last. All in all it saved me a fortune, and I was still going strong at 4am, but as a result I can't tell you much about the actual racecourse.

It is very handy for London though, there were a huge number of bars, and I remember it crawling wall to wall with totty. The sun shone like a mother f**ker too.

Today I am going to stick a fiver each way on a horse in Leopardstown that never ran a race in its life, first time out and staright off the gallops.
At 16/1 it has as good a chance as the boys in the BLACK and AMBER and the boys from the LEE contesting this years All-Ireland.   Not a solid Tip(p) though but well worth an interest.

Does anyone think the GAA Discussion Board should buy a horse !!  It would only cost 100 of us about €200 each and we could graze him in Croke Park for half the year and sell the horseshit to Heffo and Indiana to go with all that they talk about the Dub's.

Can ye start picking a name for our DB horse, selector of the best DB related name,  ie, whereisdrici, and the colours he will run in etc gets a free share.


Is there Any point Bud you might as well give the free share to big Tony  ;)

Sandown is an excellent viewing course and has great facilities. Worth paying extra few quid for club or whatever they call it. Tingle Creek or April closing NH  best meetings in my view...would have thought it is only ferret racing there at the minute. Handy enough from Central London.

The Eclipse meeting is the one you want to go to during the summertime.

Saddle slipped and got caught up in the legs causing it to tighten - was this the work of bookies given the gamble on the horse?
Connections told me it was set up for the race and would have stuffed the opposition on show - they had the horse laid out for the race and the money showed this..

Got someone to sabotage the saddle - known to happen before, another one of these gambles was a fortnight ago when opening at 8/1 a horse was backed into 7/2 near the off, when the race started the horse next to it, ran straight into the it causing it not to settle until 3 furlongs of the six were over and by that time it was too late and finished 2 lengths behind in 4th.

Had to look something up just to make sure!

Was looking there and seeing the fancies for each race, heres the ones I think will win

Duke - international, irish champ
Henry - Sussex, Moulin, Qe2
Septimus - Irish st leger
SoF - BC turf
Mastercraftsman - National stakes, Dewhurst
Peeping fawn (if she comes back) - Opera, BC fillies
frozen Fire - St leger
Moonstone - Yorkshire oaks
Yeats (if kept fresh) - Cadran

So thats 14 good chances for me and he'll no doubt pick up some others along the way, also take nito account the breeders cup meeting in america with the group ones there

just saw this so i'm too late nail!

anyway going to stick to aob/jm/group 1 combo otherwise i'll get to like the nags and become a junkie and i'm bad enough on gaa and golf. do you know how many group 1 races there are in a season nial and how many is the aob/jm combo in? 4-6 to break the record of 25 might be worth a punt.

They would go for4 as many of them as possible, aob always saves his horses for the best, thats why you won't see many at galway this week!

You wouldn't get 4/6 on him breaking the record anymore tho magic, that was before he won another four odd group ones, he would be money on even more now unfortunately

Not sure of the exact amount in a season...

Early prices are the prices that are up in the morning and up to about a half hour before a race.

They then take the early prices down and replace them with the board prices, or the live shows, the screens with all the prices that are changing all the time right up to the off.

We were taking a lot in work on tony martin's two horses

Green Mile in the galway plate
Legspinner in the galway hurdle

Green Mile was the one people were saying they had got a tip for, says that it is a serious horse. Race is today at 3.40, current price (stan james) is 7/1

Leg Spinner is one that really interests me, a very good horse, won the cesarewitch last year on the flat, Martni has been very cautious with ti this year, has let it do f**k all, has entered it in a lot of races but pulled it loadsa times. At the minute it is the second reserve so it'll need a couple to pull out before it'll go. Maybe with the conditions the way they are it'll get in. Its racing tomorrow anyway.

Plus Stee if the price is higher than 4/1 make sure and back it each way so you will get your money back at least if it plaes. Don't go leach way less than 4/1 as you will lose your money, pointless.

There are some people in where I work reguarly back 2/1 shots each way and they won't listen when I tell them its not worth it!

Well done Magic but I dunno why Manning had Lush Lashes in at the rail.He was by far the best horse in the race and would have won by 2-3 lengths with a clear run.
Kerry -3 points 2mrw at Even money with Boyles seems a cracking bet.Expect a backlash,I heard(mayb a stupid rumour)that Kerry had 3 boys in hospital after trainings in the last 2 weeks.
Also expect Fermanagh to edge it.We all seen what they did in Croke Park in 2004 and this a more experienced outfit.Kildare have improved but how good can they be if my own county Cavan could have bet them only for a ridiculous last minute goal.
Kerry -3 and Fermanagh to win.Good Double.

MICK FITZGERALD has announced his retirement from the saddle following the latest in a series of major injuries.

Quote
The 38-year-old rider suffered serious neck damage and a problem with his knee ligament after a fall from L'Ami in the John Smith's Grand National in April.

He subsequently underwent two bouts of surgery to realign three vertebrae and two discs.

Fitzgerald had broken his neck in afall two years ago and has now been advised not to return to race-riding.

"I have had to take the advice of the medical experts and they are obviously correct," he said.

"I have had a great career in racing and am still heavily involved in the sport and that will continue.

"It's the news I didn't want. But I have always respected medical opinion. These people know best and I will accept their decision 100 per cent.

I will be giving up riding with a lump in my throat because it is a game I have loved all of my life.


"But I will still be involved in the game in many capacities. After all, racing has always been in my blood," he said.


Fitzgerald bagged a host of big races during his illustrious career, including the 1996 Grand National aboard Rough Quest and the 1999 Cheltenham Gold Cup on See More Business.      
Fitzgerald has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with trainer Nicky Henderson, riding the likes of Royal & SunAlliance Chase winner Trabolgan and Cheltenham specialist Fondmort for the Lambourn handler.

Henderson sad: "Sadly the time has come to make the decision to retire.

"There's lots of things he will be doing. His communications and his way with people is absolutely second to none.

"I am sure he can look forward to a long and fruitful, well not even retirement, as he still has a career ahead of him."

Weighing room colleague and champion jockey Tony McCoy paid his own tribute to Fitzgerald.

He said: "He will be very sadly missed. Over the last 12 or 14 years he been one of my best friends on and off the course.

"He was a brilliant jockey, good lad and a brilliant talker.

"It's sad but obviously after he broke his neck for the second time it was pretty obvious he would not be ridingagain, I think.

"It's sad for racing. Mentally it's not hard (to come back) as he's very strong but I think from a medical point of view, the doctors would not have let him come back and ride again.

"He was very strong in a finish, knew his form and rode over 1,000 winners as well as plenty of Cheltenham Festival winners. His record speaks for itself."

Pity, Mick was a great jockey... Though he did me out of Amaretto Rose in the supreme novices at cheltenham there two years ago!

Yup its a group 1 alright. AOB doesn't have that great a record traveling over to America but this season he is in the form of his life. Mount Nelson has been put in second favourite, you can get him at 9/4 or 5/2... Archipenko is a very good horse though has won its last two races.

MN comes in on the back of winning the coral eclipse by a  short head, though it was a very poor group one by normal standards.

Only eight runners in the field though so is always worth a punt I think.

You will kick yourself MK if you dont back him and he wins!

I've had Inner-Voice in my tracker since it was second to Afasheen in Roscommon a while back, stormed home late on in that race.  Anywho, I was away both times it ran since, winning once at 11/4 and placed in Perth (I think) at an e/w price so I missed the e-mails.  Was going to have a punt on it tonight anyway but any info would be appreciated Niall.

Remember that night at roscommon, had hit a fence early on and sorta gave up. Carberry got it going though, when he got off eh said to lambe that it would deffo win its next race, which it did, my boss gimme better odds on it as well that night it won! I backed it to a lesser extent the next time as it was back on the flat over a smaller distance but it did well and was just about beat.

Anyway its out tonight at sligo (7.20), about 11/2 6/1 at the minute so well worth an each way shout I owuld say, its also back up in trip to 2m4f

I will post if I hear anything from my boss later but hes not in today yet and might not be...

Unlucky to miss out MK, finished third, heres the racing post report on the race

Quote
Arlington Million (G1)
Arlington 1m2f turf


SPIRIT ONE recorded an all-the-way victory for France in the Arlington Million on Saturday night, holding on from hot favourite Archipenko and Mount Nelson to record a 1-2-3 for the visitors.

However, the 26th running of the celebrated $1 million contest ended in rancour as the runner-up's trainer Mike De Kock launched a tirade against the riding tactics of Johnny Murtagh on eventual third Mount Nelson.

The Eclipse winner's former Ballydoyle-trained stablemate Archipenko, a well-backed 6-5 market leader, was short of racing room for much of the straight, penned in on the fence before failing by three-quarters of a length to catch Spirit One, a near 14-1 shot.

“That's the most ungentlemanly piece of riding I've seen in a long time,” said an angry De Kock.

“It was as if he was looking for our horse all the way round.”

Murtagh has ridden regularly for the South African in the past in Dubai, notably on Asiatic Boy and Honour Devil. To add spice to the contretemps, he also rode Archipenko on his first outing for De Kock in Dubai in the spring.

“I'm very disappointed in Johnny,” added De Kock.

“In my opinion, he rode his horse to keep us in rather than to actually win the race. There was no need for Johnny to keep us in like that.”

Archipenko's rider Kevin Shea added fuel to the fire. “He should've won, no doubt about it,” he suggested.

“Johnny hindered me the whole way round and twice pushed me into the fence.

“He had me trapped all the way around, and then when it was time to go I begged him to let me go and he wouldn't let me through.”

With Spirit One out alone in front, Mount Nelson raced in second with Archipenko behind him on the rail. Although the latter seemed to be going the better of the pair turning for home, the O'Brien contender was not a spent force and was staying on under strong driving from Murtagh to take third, a length and a half behind Archipenko.

“I had a good trip,” said Murtagh.

“I secured a pocket on the rail and was where I wanted to be. At the half-mile pole, I thought we were going to get there. We just couldn't get to the winner.”

Spirit One may now be aimed for the Breeders' Cup. “Why not?” said trainer Philippe Demercastel.

“We'll take him home, give him time off and definitely come back to the US.”

Mendizabal added: “This is a very good horse. I took the lead because I wanted to run my race and he responded very well for me. He quickened when I asked him to, so I never saw what was happening behind me.”

I was very very weary about taking on O Brien and Murtagh after getting nailed last week when I backed Lush Lashes but this is a different class of horse.Once it got the opening there was only gonna b one winner.Short odds but a winner is a winner.

An each way bet is broke down into two parts...

You have the e20 on mount nelson to win at 5-2, and e20 on the horse to place at the place odds (we pay a quarter all races) so say 5-8. The win part of your bet is beat so you just have the place money. Seems like they have paid you 1/5 the odds for the place so you have your e20 on the horse to place at odds of 5-10, or 1-2.

e20 at 1-2 gives ya e30 back.

Said before you shouldn't go each way on a horse below 4-1, as if the horse places you won't even get your money back, at least on a 4-1, the place odds are gonna be even money and you will get your total stake back. This is in a shop paying a 1/4 the odds for a place. If only paying a fifth the odds then go each way on anything over 5-1

Some news for all of you who like me cannot wait til the national hunt season gets back under way!!

Cheltenham to host conditionals' contest
PROMISING young jump jockeys have been handed a great opportunity to display their talents on Totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup day.

A new race, the Conditionals' Hurdle, a handicap over an extended 2m4f, will be added to the top class card for the first time in March.

Cheltenham's director of racing Simon Claisse said: "We have long held the view that a race for the potential champion jockeys of the future would be a great addition to the Festival and a handicap for conditional jockeys was one of the races that was under close consideration when we first extended the meeting to four days.

"This will also be an opportunity for some of the large number of horses which are eliminated from the Coral Cup each year to have a run at the Festival."

Other changes to the 2009 Festival, being staged from March 10 to 13, include a first-race time of 1.30pm each day and the feature on all four days being the fourth race with a 3.20pm start.


So a half an hour earlier start each day at the festival. The article is a big ambiguous though, does this mean there will be one extra race only on gold cup day or every day??

Also War of Attrition being aimed for Down Royal, the James Nicholson Chase. the Listener will be over as well for it, and I think Nicholls is going to bring Neptune Collonges over too. Gonna be a very good renewal, NC had a great season finishing third in the gold cup then winning at punchestown... Plus will be interesting to see The Listeners first run out for his new yard after switching from the Alners, and War of Attrition coming back from injury. f**k I can't wait, flat racing is ok but nowhere near as good

Just watching Racing News here on ATR, news coming thorugh that AOB is thinking about taking Hebridean hurdling this season. Talk of it going fo rthe Champion Hurdle, which AOB has won three times already with Istabraq. Only a four year old I think so would near be better starting off going for thr Triumph Hurdle?

Alan King was on, said he thought Hebridean was smaller than Katchit, and was surprised by it...

Would be good to see AOB taking on the jumps boys again!

Just saw odds - 50/1 Champion, 16/1 Triumph

Another two group ones this week at york

Thursday - Yorkshire oaks

http://www.oddschecker.com/horse-racing/ante-post-racing/flat/yorkshire-oaks

Ice Queen is AOB's only one in the betting here, 8/1 shot. Came second in the irish oaks with the run of her life at 66/1. Don't know if it can win here, think this race will be between Passage of Time and Lush Lashes...

Friday - Nunthorpe Stakes

http://www.oddschecker.com/horse-racing/ante-post-racing/flat/nunthorpe-stakes

AOB has US Ranger in this race, also Abraham Lincoln but he looks to be a pace setter.

Think its best to steer clear of AOB here this week magickingdom!!

Day 1 at York abandoned....

DAY one of York's Ebor Festival has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Wednesday's fixture is also in doubt, with officials having called a 4pm inspection for this afternoon.

Heavy overnight rain on the Knavesmire left today's meeting untenable after an 8.30am inspection was called early this morning.

This afternoon's six-race card was set to feature a mouthwatering duel between Duke Of Marmalade and New Approach in the Group 1 Juddmonte International Stakes. Officials hope to run that contest and the Great Voltigeur later in the week.

Clerk of the course William Derby accepted he was left with no option but to abandon.

He said: "We've abandoned racing for today following 11mm of overnight rain.       
"There has also been continuing rain this morning, which started up again at around 8am.

"We will also hold an inspection at 4pm for racing for the rest of the week."

Derby is, however, investigating the possibility of rescheduling Tuesday's three Group races for later in the week.

"We are looking at the feasibility with the British Horseracing Authority and other parties at staging today's Group races later this week," he added.

"We will make an announcement on this issue later in the day."

Racegoers who bought tickets for today's abandoned meeting will not lose their money.

Advance booked general admission badges and tickets will be automatically refunded for the fixture.

The pair set to meet again, looks liek more money for the duke

Leopardstown rematch for Champion duo

DUKE OF MARMALADE and Derby hero New Approach are set to meet once again in the Tattersalls Millions Irish Champion Stakes next month after the former ruled supreme in the Juddmonte Internationalat Newmarket.

The rescheduled clash of the generations spiced up what may have otherwise been a low-key afternoon at the course, and Duke Of Marmalade was brilliant as he scooped up his fifth Group 1 win of the season.

The King George winner was dropping back to a mile and a quarter under Johnny Murtagh, and there was no doubt of the regard in which he is held after his three-quarter-length success over the luckless Phoenix Tower.
His stablemate Red Rock Canyon towed the field through the early stages as Duke Of Marmalade sat handy, with New Approach pulling hard on his return from injury.

Jim Bolger's Classic winner was never in a position to challenge once the race began in earnest and had to settle for third.

O'Brien, winning his 18th Group 1 of the summer, said: "He is so special that you wonder if he is flesh and blood. If horses were made out of concrete and stone he would be made out of something harder.

"He had a very messy week as he came to England, spent a couple of hours here and then flew back.

"I was nervous as I wasn't sure what would happen, but it is a credit to those people who made it happen and it just shows what can happen when people get together.
      
"He is just one of those very special horses, and you can see that yourself.

"He will never win too far, which is probably to his advantage.

"If all is well with him the plan will be to go Leopardstown with him in two weeks for the Irish Champion Stakes." Murtagh added: "I had to wait an extra couple of days for it but it turned out to be a great race.

"He is so solid, so genuine and always turns up the same.

"His work is good, his temperament is good and when he turns up at the races you can guarantee he is going to put upa performance like that.

"I got a lovely run up the inside and got there sooner than I wanted to be. But I knew that when I asked for maximum effort that he would pull it out for me up the hill."

Bolger said of New Approach: "He's beaten but definitely not battered. He ran a good race and is obviously on the way back.

"We'll regroup and I'm sure you'll see a different horse in two weeks' time, I'm not using the ground as an excuse.

"It will be Leopardstown next for the Irish Champion Stakes."

William Hill trimmed Duke Of Marmalade into 4-5 from even money for the rematch, while New Approach is out to 100-30.

OFFICIALS at Leopardstown will hold a 7am inspection to assess the prospects for their high-profile Saturday meeting.

The bumper eight-race card is due to feature two Group 1 contests in the Tattersalls Millions Champion Stakes and the Coolmore Fusaichi Pegasus Matron Stakes but is now in some doubt.

The track was hit by a deluge of rain Friday morning and although it stopped briefly during the afternoon, more is forecast and general manager Tom Burke is hoping for a largely dry night.

"We will have an inspection at 7am and we have had 45 millimetres of rain between 4am and 2pm," said Burke.

"There are bits of casual water on the track but that wouldn't be unusual when you get so much rainin a short period of time.
"We had a similar experience before our last meeting and we raced fine.

"It stopped raining at around 2pm but there is a risk of further showers tonight, although they tell me it should not be as bad as what we've had.

"Most of the track is surprisingly in good condition so we will have to see what the night brings."

Burke described the current going as soft and reassured racegoers that contingency plans are already in place for the card to be take place on Sunday should it fall foul to the elements.

Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: full back on September 05, 2008, 04:05:34 PM
For girt


"The Irish Champion Stakes meeting was backed at 1/7 to get the all clear when the market opened, but following a morning deluge (of rain at the track, and money on Betfair) the meeting has been backed at a low of 11/10 to be abandoned.

The current betting is 1/2 for the meeting to go ahead, and 13/8 to be called off."

Great feature on Paul Nicholls in te racing post today did any of you see it?

Says AOB has inspired him to try to bag both the irish and brit trainer c'ship! Says if AOB can do it why cant he!

Denman is 60kg overweight at this stage also!! But says he shud be ok for the hennessy, also lists some top class chasers who would run off bottom weight (10st) if te tank runs: joe lively, alberttas run, big bucks, knowhere, new alco, air force one, roll along, battlecry

would be great to see

Heres some special odds they had posted up

-train 123 in chelt gold cup (again) 10-1 (pp)
-champ trainer in ireland 6-1 (blue sq)
-champ trainer in ire and brit 3-1 (willhill) why take this when 6s is available for just ireland above?!??
-win champ hurdle 6-1 (pp, willhill) (has prospects such as pierrot lumaire, celestial halo, rippling ring)
-win champ hurdle, champ chase, gold cup 10-1 (blue sq)
-no winner at cheltenham festival 25-1 (pp)
-denman to win hennessy and gold cup 3-1 (coral)
-denman for hennessy 15-8 (willhill)
-denamn for hennessy, gold cup and national 33-1 (pp)
-repeat champ chase and gold cup double 5-4 (willhill)

That would be bad news for Irish trainers, but good news for those of us who attend NH meetings in Ireland!!

I wouldn't chance the Champion Hurdle one myself, has he won this yet??

Testament to his dominance of top class chasers that only 5/4 that he will do Champion Chase / Gold Cup double again, I wouldn't be laying that myself!
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Our Nail Loney on September 10, 2008, 12:31:22 AM
Na don't think he had won the champ hurdle

TRhat pierrot lumaire won well at aintrie though in the novice hurdle event this year but the champ hurdle is dadly to call at the min with wee katchit, sublimity to come back, sizing europe staying over hurdles, maybe harchibald again, brave inca is back in training! The novices from last year as well captain cee bee and binocular, as well as osana, that race is a mine field!

Ya would think the gold cup is in his hands with akuto and denman, even neptune was going good as well.Said in racing post today that master minded has got stronger which is frightening for 2milers after last years champ chase (lets forget aintree-cost me a few hundred!!)

I love nicholls, his column in te racing post was great every sat, no bullshit and he told the truth,  remember reading the week he said master minded had caught his eye in the gallops with kauto and voila it won with its dick out, fair play.

Zarkavas turn of pace was something else.Got the feeling from Ballydoyle earlier in the week that the ground wouldnt suit the Duke,thats why I backed Soldier of Fortune whom i thought was coming good with about 300 to go but then Zarkava kicked and game over!
Forgot to back Marchand D'or who I had followed since July. 2/1 was a great price for the best Sprinter around.

Quote
PAUL NICHOLLS, fresh from his Munster National success with Dear Villez at Limerick on Sunday, has 2007 Gold Cup winner Kauto Star and Turko among the 19 entries for the JNWine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal on November 1.

Nicholls won the race last year with Taranis and the Grade 1 event over 3m has also attracted three other British-trained entries - Air Force One (Charlie Mann), Turpin Green (Nicky Richards) and The Listener (Nick Mitchell).

The home team is headed by Kicking King, runner-up in 2004 before winning the Gold Cup the following year. He is also entered at Punchestown on Thursday. Other notable entries include Munster National runner-up Mister Top Notch and Willie Mullins' Snowy Morning.

Looked progressive when grinding out win over stiff 7f on turf in summer; not had same test of stamina since in nurseries, so too soon to be writing him off now upped in trip, but reluctance to go to post last time of some concern and probably bit to find overall.

Rip Van Winkle for Dewhurst as record bid goes to the wire


AIDAN O'BRIEN has confirmed Rip Van Winkle is on course for Saturday's Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, which could turn out to be a vital date for those hoping the champion trainer will break the world record for Group One wins in a year.

A month ago O'Brien was being quoted at odds of as short as 1 to 8 to break Bobby Frankel's record of 25 top-flight victories.

However, he is stalled on 21, and after odds-on defeats for Mastercraftsman and Yeats over the Arc weekend, as well as missing out on the Arc itself, O'Brien is now rated as high as 3 to 1 to break the record.

Rip Van Winkle was a drifter in Dewhurst betting yesterday, but O'Brien said yesterday of the unbeaten 2,000 Guineas favourite: "At the moment he is a runner and he seems to be fine in himself."

He also revealed his team for the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita next weekend, with Duke Of Marmalade and Henrythenavigator due to take part in the Classic on the Los Angeles track's new synthetic surface.

Top American rider John Velasquez is on standby to ride whichever of the pair John Murtagh discards.

They will be joined at Santa Anita by US Ranger (Mile), Soldier Of Fortune and Red Rock Canyon (Turf) and Halfway To Heaven (Filly Mare Turf). Heart Shaped will run in the new juvenile fillies turf race, while the Champagne winner Westphalia will go in the juvenile turf. King Of Rome could also run on the under-card.

"Aidan has had a real good run during the summer when everything went right, but opportunities might be running out for him," said a spokesman for Cashmans, who rate O'Brien's record chances at 3 to 1.

Paddy Power are more hopeful at 5 to 4, but a spokesman said: "Rip Van Winkle more or less has to win the Dewhurst. Obviously he will be well represented at the Breeders' Cup too, but if he is going to break the record it will be tight."

O'Brien is also set to run Hebridean in Saturday's Champion Stakes. Declaration for that race and the Dewhurst takes place this morning.

Well done Nail, good double.

WOA was impressive enough and great to see him back, but you would have to think that he hasn't beaten anything! Don't like to say it but KK is not coming back and if he manages to get one decent win this season (as he turns 11) it would be something else.

Actually, if you remember KK's return in Gowran last year against Nickname, he looked good that day too, but was only flattering to deceive. I wouldn't expect much from WOA on his next appearance due to the "Bounce" factor, but with a bit of luck we will see something out of him, that he might at least be competitive against the Nichol's horses. Well, here is hoping anyway!
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: full back on October 17, 2008, 08:36:30 AM
Ricoh lead from the break but was caught about a furlong and a half out and finished fourth.
Think he finished about 13/2. Had him done ew at 16/1. Hate it when a horse leads from the start.

Castle Bar Sling is 11/1 now on Betfair, but there are punters looking to back it a 33/1.
Any word for it today Bud?

I'm under no  illusion that this horse will win the Gold Cup, just am happy that the price is dropping so I can do a bit of trading...

Great to see the NH back... Cheltenham today, few novice races that could show us a thing or two for the season

Razor Royale in the second excites me, as does Earth Planet, Nicholls in the first, had backed it a few times last year...
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread

Razor Royale was jumping well and had just pulled level with the even money fave Ring The Boss when it fell at the second (or third) last...

Good to see Parsons Legacy back with a win, a potential Grand National horse, only pulled out this year due to injury if I remember rightly.

There a few days ago I mentioned Castle Bar Sling and during the sunny days of summer I said how we had a tip for this in Killarney and it won at 14/1.  Since then it has come everywhere including last but nowhere near a win and yet te day it did do thye business half of Dingle and Ballyferriter were falling around the place celebrating.  From the results it seems that this yoke will soon be turned to glue but I am just confused as to how it can be a no-no all of a sudden.

You are very welcome ML, just passing on the info we got from both owners, has me well set up for the NH season anyway!!

I just had a look at the breeders cup line up there now, I'd say that I'll only get to see the last two and I am fearfull for O'Brien's chances overall. Hope I am wrong and it would be great to see him win the big one, might have a small e/w on the duke just for the interest.

What a night for the Euopeans, even winning the big one on the dirt! 5-4 to Europe, some going.

A pity there was just one too good for Henry, would have been great to see O'Brien win it.
The yanks got stuck into Curlin for stupid money at a stupid price, that must be some killing for the bookies over there

Aye 2nd behind Cousin Vinny, another machine to stay on the right side of this year.

Don't know which way to go with Kauto at the weekend. 1/2 doesn't look great value but then you see the form of Ruby and Nicholls in Ireland over the past few years...

1st May 2003: Sporazene – Won
1st May 2003: Le Roi Migue – Won
25th April 2007: Neptune Collonges – Won
1st August 2007: Hoo La Baloo – Brought Down
3rd November 2007: Taranis – Won
28th December 2007: Denman – Won
22nd April 2008: Twist Magic – Won
23rd April 2008: Neptune Collonges – Won
30th July 2008: Oslot – Won
12th October 2008: Dear Villez – Won

I might just sit this one out.

Sorry hit the wrong button. ye Kauto at 1-2 on Saturday but really shouldnt have any problem winning this.Heard Clive Smith the owner interviewed yesterday and he reckons Kauto is in better form this year than he was this time last year.He seems alot fresher and fitter.
Finger on the Pulse is a horse Id look out 4this year.Same connections as Kicking King I believe.was on it at 12/1 at Cheltenham last year.Won on its reappearance a few weeks ago at Limerick beating Marodima from the Paul Nicholls stable
As for Noland, I would definitley be watching that horse 1st time out before backing it.

First race was a strange one, McCoy won... aboard a 20/1 shot! (Was 25/1 at the off though returned at 20s much to the displeasure of a few punters-this is happening more and more these days changes to sp's after the off)

That tote Scoop 6 fund has reached record levels  :o
With the flat season over now all races in it next Saturday will be NH, so I think its worth a punt, just checked to see if I can do the bet through the tote account here and thankfully I can. So if any of you have any wonderfull insights into next Saturdays racing, please share

Great card of racing in Navan tommorow, just had a quick look through it. Meade is going well at the moment, tends to go well at this meeting and has some horses who don't mind the heavy going. He could possibly rattle off a quick double in the first two races, also has Aran Concerto later in the card and the bumper looks to be another straight battle between himself and Mullins. The lismullen hurdle could be the race of the day and a very open race with Kazal probably going off fav. I think Sweet Kiln is worth a shot, Bowe loves this race! I used to love going to this meeting to watch Moscow run in the Fortria chase, he won it twice and was just touched off by Central House in this last year. It looks very open as well, don't think that I'll have a bet, but would probably favour Schindlers.

Did the scoop there myself.... a good bet and have to say I am hooked.

Knew I was never gonna get the big prize, but the place fund was still good...

Had one knocker for the place fund, which was over 400quid, knockavilla in the 2nd last leg, raging as I woulda had four lines paid out as I had Joe Lively and Halcon in the first leg, then Fair Along and Powerstation in whatever one they were in

Knockavilla placing would have brought the place dividend down but who gives a f**k I wuold have got it four times!

Deffo doing it again next week, this week I had two horses in four legs and two "bankers" in the others, to a cost of £32 quid. Might bump it up to £64 next week with only one banker, the place fund is very good and if you get a couple placed in one or two races then you bump the amount of lines paid out.

Great weekend at Cheltenham... despite it being bad for me betting wise...

First of all McKeown taking the other jockeys whip and winning the race on Hoopy! Got a two day ban but I am sure he will tell you it was worth it...

Then Davy Russell showing a bit of initiative and walking the course with the stewards befre the cross country and spotting a short cut, I was ragin at the time as I had forty on Garde Champetre and was relying on Dix Villex being disqualified! I see the funny side now... Though they have stressed there will be no conufsion in the future...

Good day for the irish apart from ruby on the last favourite which ran out at the last!!

Ruby out for at least a month after his fall on saturday, had an operation and got his spleen removed... Bad luck for him, Sam Thomas will take his rides now for the next while, including Kauto on Saturday

Tatenen won well on sunday beating Straw Bear who I cant really see amking that much of an impression over hurdles... Very short for the arkle already, a lay if you ask me at that price, Kalahari king won well today, and we still have to see Kicks for Free and Free World properly... and thats only Nicholls runners...

Kicking King Retired

Kicking King, winner of the 2005 Cheltenham Gold Cup for Tom Taaffe, has been retired. Now a 10-year-old, he had been nursed back into action last season following a serious tendon injury and hopes were high he had retained his ability following an encouraging return after a 759-day absence. However, in four subsequent starts he failed to show his old sparkle and connections have decided to call time on the dual King George VI Chase winner's career. "It's not really a sad day, Kicking King was a wonderful chaser to have had," said his owner Conor Clarkson. "On looking back over his racing career you realise what an amazing racehorse he was. I suppose it's a little bit sad his racing career is over, but he can now look forward to a happy retirement."

He had some record, second only to the brilliant well chief in the arkle over an inadequate trip as a novice. Won 2 King Georges and a Gold Cup. Would he have beaten WOA in his GC if he hadn't got injured?? Who knows, he was a class act and it is good to see that connections have done the right thing WOA is coming along nicely but KK was not going to get back.

Post by: Hardy on November 20, 2008, 08:01:24 PM
It seems the King George will be the first chance for WOA to be measured against Kauto Star and the other top chasers. WOA is quoted at 20/1 for that - seems hugely generous to me or is he maybe not expected to take his place?

Looks like Nicholls is also keeping Denman and KS apart until the Gold Cup. Denman is entered in the Aintree national too!

The races are not announced as yet... Its six of the televised races tomorrow...

I think there are seven races on channel four tomorrow, so prob the six out of them

They should be announced this afternoon

Some gamble going on the market for how much will be wagered on it? Tote opened up at 50/1 for over 4million, last I checked they had cut it in to 13/2!!
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Our Nail Loney on November 21, 2008, 09:46:56 AM
How do you do this Scoop bet?

6 televised races... Pick a horse in each rac e you think will win, get the six winners, get the jackpot!

Na but seriously its sort of like the lottery, there is a prize fund which is divided by the amount of ppl that get the six winners, thats if it is won at all... There is also a place fund if you get your horses all placed, the average pay out for this is around 700quid I think...

The way I do it is choose two 'bankers' and then for the other four legs I pick two horses...

To calculate the cost of your slip just multiply the amount of selections in each leg, if you only do one in each its:

1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x = 1 x £2...

The way I do it is £32

2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 1 x 1 = 16 x £2...

Thinking about bumping it up to £64 quid this week...

I had two placed in the first and the fourth legs last saturday, this meant I would have got the place fund four times, which was 420quid if I remember rightly, one leg knocked me, the 9/4 fave knockavilla which fell

Kauto Star's final preparations ahead of his hat-trick bid in Saturday's Betfair Chase at Haydock have all gone according to plan.

Sam Thomas, standing in for the injured Ruby Walsh, was down at Paul Nicholls' Ditcheat yard yesterday popping the former Gold Cup winner over some small fences.

"He's in top form, Sam came down and schooled him, he jumped about 20 little fences and he's in very good form and I'm very happy with him," said Nicholls.

"I like to school them all a couple of days before they run as it makes them stretch and is good exercise. If they jump 20 obstacles in a piece of work it's quite good for them.

"It's a routine we do with Kauto Star and he enjoys it too."

Owner-breeder Roger Nicholls is happy to go back on his word that Ollie Magern would never return to Haydock after three failed attempts in the Betfair Chase.

With reasonable conditions and the popular gelding in such fine form, Nicholls now believes there are grounds to be optimistic ahead of the Grade One contest.       
"I think he deserves his chance. There's only six runners, so there's some place money there so let's go and enjoy ourselves," he said.

"I did say I'd never go there again but, as long as it's good ground and not abog, it should be all right.

"If it was heavy he wouldn't be going.

"He gives his all and a lot of peculiar things happen in racing.

"We just hopes he goes there, enjoys it and comes back safe - fingers crossed."

Ollie Magern's three previousefforts in the Betfair Chase have ended in disappointment.

He was last of seven to Kingscliff in 2005 and finished fourth and sixth to Kauto Star in the last two runnings.

The others don't wanna hear that... Best price 4/9 kauto tomorrow...

The big syndicates will be out in force this week, plundering thousands into their dockets but you never know

Maybe one of us can do an agnes... Wee woman who got the six winners picking names that had significance like her family names an all, then she got the bonus the next week also!

Last weeks was this

Joe Lively 4/1
Imperial Commander 13/2
Ice Tea 8/1
Fair Along 10/1
European Dream 11/2
Sunnyhill Boy 14/1

The accum would have paid £361,968.75 for a £1...

19 dockets were still live going into the last leg but they could not get it... If I remember rightly someone had the 66/1 second place in the last leg Maneki Neko... some sweat there!

If you have a tote account you can anyway or if you are on track in Gowran tommorrow. I rang a bet into tote last week. Given that there is a stg£2 unit cost to the bet it converts to €2.34 unit stake. I did a 12 permutation bet last week and cost me €28

I agree with you totally lads, 4 all weather races and one in huntingdon is worth about 3k!!!! This is wide open, the only thing about it is that there are no massive fields. There are no bankers either though!!

I have went down the Aggie Haddock route... got the missus to pick six horses based on their name (oh and of course she picked Mc Coy in the Haddock race) I think every one of her selections was double digit odds, so if this one line bet comes up you can be sure there wont be too many others to share it with!

I don't see how you would be better doing the lotto, is it not 14million to one or something? The six last week was 300,000/1 or something, its a bit of craic plus there is a genrous place fund, do you get anything in the lotto if 34 is drawn out and you have 33 or 35??

It was great to see that Eddie Lynam had the winner in the last leg of the Scoop 6, a pity it didn't give him a bit of tv exposure with Channel 4. A very decent Meath man  :o

Another good days racing in Navan with Meade having about 4 or 5 favourites on the card. For once I think the crowd mightn't have been too testing on the Proudstown Road Track, but it seems to have teemed down overnight, so probably the ususal boggy ground. Pandorama and Roches Point both look like good horses and if you shop around you can get 2/1 the double.

Looks like the fighting Fifth might be lost altogether. The Newcastle clerk of the course (quoted in Sporting Life):

"If the race is to be saved we would need to find a suitable venue and timing is an issue as there are so many decent races on at the moment - the Christmas Hurdle is not that far away so it will be difficult to reschedule I would suspect."

Personally I wont be doing it.  JJ Lambe is after getting third with Inner Voice in the 1.50.  It was backed from 20's into 12's before the off.  Inner Voice is to the best of my knowledge owned by a Belfast bookie, one of his employees is a regular poster on here.
Would a trainer send the word out about the wrong horse to deflect attention?  I dont know but I'll watch the race with interest without any hope of financial reward.  I hope the horse wins but wont chance it.

hardy i normally back rydane but he has had too many chances now for me. So i am taking a bigger price. Riche luvs the trip and will hopefully be there are there abouts

I'm not that much into the flat, so don't take much notice of what I say, but I think Ryedane is well treated by the handicapper after two wins and two places and never more than 5 lengths off the winner in his last seven outings and the 3 lb claim will help further.

Best of luck anyway.

This may be a result of this thread  :D :D. I have merley put it up as my nap of the day so wouldn't want anyone losing the christmas money lecale lad. No presies for the kids and all that.

Incomparable faded over this trip when fourth behind Ingleby Arch at Southwell and he looks more effective over the minimum trip. Any market move for the Irish raider Spiritina on her handicap bow would be interesting but RADIATOR ROONEY revels on polytrack and the booking of the excellent George Baker may prove significant.



Sounds like the money for the big outsider is "RADIATOR ROONEY"

Win ya couldn't pick your hole...lol
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: winsamsoon on December 08, 2008, 04:08:43 PM
as i say our fella that is my fancy but you can feel free to pick your own hole ;)

Race Overview: HART OF GOLD is the selection with Richelieu and Choisette the most likely dangers. Ron Harris is always respected with his sprint handicappers and while his four-year-old isn't quite the force he was of old, he does act around this circuit and is potentially well treated on some of his older form. He ran a reasonable race at Kempton last time out and can be anticipated to run another solid race here. Richelieu ran creditably in an apprentices race at the track and will be under stronger handling today with Tony Culhane booked. Choisette is proven over the trip though is prone to throwing in the odd modest run. Sendreni drops in trip while River Kirov, who also represents Michael Wigham, is watched in the market given the booking of Chris Catlin. Dualagi put up two fair efforts at Kempton last month and may be best of the rest. Incomparable's recent wins have come at Southwell so it remains to be seen as to whether he will be quite so effective on this surface. Ryedane looks fully exposed. Hart Of Gold is our selection.

Ok lads as i am still on a high from the 4:40. i would urge you to get some of your hard earned on lewis Hamilton to win the BBC sports personality of the year. He is currently a massive  :o 9/4  ::) second favourite behind Rebbecca Adlington (5/6). Motor racing in Britain is massive and they will vote for hamilton in hundreds because he is far more marketable than Adlington. I think i will hit this one big time. Even if you look at the past winners of the SPOTY any motor racing guy that done well in the season usually won it or was pipped by a boxer. I can't see anyone else winning this one so i will leave you guys to ponder it over.
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread

Great tip Winsamsoon. Cheers. I agree with your take on the BBC thing. Hamilton's in to 7/4 now.

Personally I wont be doing it.  JJ Lambe is after getting third with Inner Voice in the 1.50.  It was backed from 20's into 12's before the off.  Inner Voice is to the best of my knowledge owned by a Belfast bookie, one of his employees is a regular poster on here.
Would a trainer send the word out about the wrong horse to deflect attention?  I dont know but I'll watch the race with interest without any hope of financial reward.  I hope the horse wins but wont chance it.

Inner Voice is owned by a Lurgan bookie actually jaykay, what made you think I was from Belfast?

Got a word yesterday from Lambe himself that Inner Voice would get up for a place, though the weights were killing it, also he said that Red Moloney wouldn't be beat (won at 5/6 in race where he had a runner) and that Richelieu would at least place... The computers were fucked in work yesterday though and I could not get on here, that was why I had my boss in with me and he was on phone to Lambe...

Good time for it lads coming up to christmas eh??

Now for Noland today...

I think so, too, though I'd be worried about the going. He was beaten in this two years ago as Gold Cup champion in similar conditions. Looking forward to the battle between these two anyway. It'll tell us a lot about WOA.

I fancy Watson Lake for a place, but it's a bit skinny at 2.86.

Niall-A friend of mine told me the owner was Belfast based, apologies for that.

I went to Punchestown and backed 5 winners, nice money spinner before Christmas.  In fairness you would have to have been useless not to make a few quid there, there was good word around for Joncol and Bob's in the bumper.

I got word for Borero the last day he won, before the race I was told it was the best handicapped horse in Charlie Manns yard.  It only won by 1l that day, I didnt see the race so I dont know if he was pulling up at the line or flat out.  He runs again today at 2.20 and is only up 3lbs for the last win.  I havent heard anything today but at 4/1 I think hes worth a few quid, he owes me nothing.

Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Our Nail Loney on December 10, 2008, 02:55:43 PM
Katchit hasnt set the world alight this season, second to snap tie then killed by the weights when losing to chomba womba

Saying that its record at cheltenham is unbelievable, think its last six form at chelt is 111121 inc winning the Champ Hurdle and the Triumph at the festival last two years...

Will be top weight again saturday and at that price will obviously offer good each way value

I dont think Crack Away Jack is worth a shite and will not trouble the top hurdlers come March

I am probably Binoculars number one fan and was literally creaming my pants watching it cruise to its last win without even getting outta first gear and I think it willt ake all the beating...

Betting: Binocular 6/4, Crack Away Jack 7/2, Katchit 5/1, Chomba Womba 7/1...

As long as Katchit stays over 9/2 I might do it each way and the forecast: Binocular 1st, Katchit 2nd.

edit: Just looking Katchit has some form 11211111/13211-23, 15 runs over hurdles and never out of the top3... what a class wee horse...

I also have fond memories of it when it had its first run last year I had a ton on it and it saved my week in belfast for halloween was on the rip the whole time with the winnings!

I've used the "to be placed" part of the betting in PP and it lets you do doubles trebles etc so it can be a good money maker!  Although any short price fav you are looking at 1-8 up to be placed so you still need to take a bit of a chance.

Check you are getting value though before you do the bet, make sure the place odds is no more than 1/4 the original price...

You weren't far of the mark here. Johnston sent out two horses out Wednesday afternoon, both won, and sent one out that night and it won too (all 3 at decent prices). So to be fair, any horse that he sent 200 miles the day after had to be backed but it just wasn't to be.

No I backed Garde Champetre the last day out at Cheltenham when Davy Russell was a little rascal and robbed him of the race, and I am thinking about backing it again today, I know it i top weight but with Nina on board and it has te experiernce, record in cross country events F1112, would have been a first in the last had Dix Villez not skipped the corner!!

Also gonna take Ballyfitz in the first, it is around even money, that is why am sticking it in the double, winner of the Pertemps Final Hurdle at Chetenham last year, has shaped up nicely since turning to fences, two wins from two including a win at cheltenham last month beating a couple of useful horses in Big fella Thanks (2nd yesterday due to Sam Thomas) and West End Rocker...

Spotted another I like, CALGARY BAY in the 1.45 at Doncaster, about 11/8 2nd fave... Henrietta Knight trains this horse and was a decent hurdler last year beating the likes of Snap Tie and his main rival here I'msingintheblues, was a contender though disappointed in the Supremem Novices Hurdle at the festival, though was placed in another Grade 1 event.

It receives weight from the favourite here and I think it could shock it.

So my four for today:

BALLYFITZ (12.10 C)
SIMON (1.55 C)
GARDE CHAMPETRE (1.20 C)
CALGARY BAY (1.45 D)

I got word for Borero the last day he won, before the race I was told it was the best handicapped horse in Charlie Manns yard.  It only won by 1l that day, I didnt see the race so I dont know if he was pulling up at the line or flat out.  He runs again today at 2.20 and is only up 3lbs for the last win.  I havent heard anything today but at 4/1 I think hes worth a few quid, he owes me nothing.

Borero is declared to run tomorrow in Lingfield at 3.10 if it passes the inspection.  It's not a tip but I'll be backing it.

I'd like to think I'll get to Leopardstown one of the days. My best day at the races this year was last Sunday. I went to my first point-to-point for years, in Dungourney, Co. Cork. You couldn't be backing horses - you wouldn't know what you'd be backing. I backed one horse for the day and only because I liked the look of him in the ring - he came third. But you couldn't beat it for atmosphere - real down to earth racing. Soft going, with your wellies three inches into the muck, local colour aplenty and you're close enough to the action to smell the horses and hear the jockeys' shouting at each other  "get outa me f***in way", etc. Can't think of a nicer way to spend a winter Sunday afternoon.

Curley poised to quit racing over prize-money

BARNEY CURLEY is set to quit racing out of frustration after accepting his long crusade to improve prize-money is no nearer reaching its goal.
The legendary gambler-turned-trainer has put his Newmarket yard on the market and is also preparing to sell hisstring of around 20 horses.

An advertisement for 34-box Cleveland House Stables in Hamilton Road, which is available for sale or rent at £60,000 per annum, will appear in the Racing Post later this week with Curley, 69, characteristically pulling no punches in the accompanying copy when explaining his reason for getting out of the sport after being one of its most colourful characters for four decades.

"In the present climate we no longer feel it's justified to provide at a very substantial cost, with no hope of a return, however small, free entertainment for the big bookmakers and the racecourses who seem to have a stranglehold on racing in England," writes Curley who also blames the regulators for not being more proactive where prize-money is concerned.

Curley, who intends to continue living in Newmarket, said: "Racing is just going down the tubes every day in terms of prize-money, and I have just come to the stage where I have had enough of it."

Curley, who has often cut a controversial figure through his clashes with racing authorities and outspoken views, but with a well-earned reputation as a scourge of bookmakers, went on: "If it wasn't for the Maktoum family, the sport would be a complete disaster. People are making fools of you, racing for £1,200 and £1,400, and there just doesn't appear to be any progress being made. It's all a Condoleezza Rice (US Secretary of State) scenario; people flying all over the place andhaving meetings, but achieving nothing.

"I said 15 years ago that the sport had no future, except if there was a strike to bring people to their senses, and I believe that more strongly today than I did then.

"When you look at it in the cold light of day, you are racing for walk-around money. Some of these races are worth so little that you need 14 before you break even. There is no other country in the world I know of that would stand for this."

Among the horses Curley is offering for sale are Faith And Reason, winner of his last two hurdle races, bumper winner The Bonus Ball, the twice successful Elusive Hawk, and Sereth, a five-year-old with decent form in Germany.

Since relinquishing his licence last winter to concentrate on running his charity Direct Aid for Africa, Curley's training operation has been headed by Andrew Stringer whose arrangement runs to the end of the year after which he is looking to pursue a business project of his own.

The racecourse was our playground at school. The bookies were a little unimaginative and/or timid. There was one PUBLIC phone. I'm not sure whether there was a lad in the phone box all the time, but with thousands at stake, if I was a bookie I'd have hauled him out of there pretty quick. Or gone to someone's house or the post office, which was about 150 yards away.

Of course - reading that link, I had it arseways. It was an incoming call from the shops to the on-course bookies that was needed to let them know the SP money was on in the shops.

I'm a bit miffed at their description of Bellewstown as an 'obscure' racecourse. They've been racing on The Hill since 1726.

Though there is the story about the queen of England at the Bellewstown races wearing a fox fur hat. Some local lackey admired the hat and asked her how she chose to wear it. Well, says she, I was telling Philip I was coming to the races at Bellewstown and he said "wear the fox hat".

i can say thats me finished with backing silverburn.

Kauto still available at 6/4 with Stan James, Victor Chandler and various other bookeis...

Was shopping there, got myself a little present, Mick Fitzgeralds autobiography, should be a good read

Though I still can't fogive him for Amaretto Rose in the Supreme Novices when I had my biggest bet ever at the time on him!

You can get it at 2.64 less commission, still better than 5/4 unless you are going big nail
But you wouldnt want to spoil Boxing Day if it loses by going big ;)

ill be down to see you some day soon about that bet Nail...What about the going Nail? what sort of going will Kauto like and dislike so i'll know...I'm seriously thinking about slapping £200 on her to get me a tasty £300 back...Sounds better than any football bet that you'll be looking to get £300 bills of it...

Kauto goes best on good to soft ground, heading towards good ground... Kauto is more of a class horse ompared to the likes of Denman who would love a bit of cut in the ground...

Last couple of years the going as been good to soft which it probably will be again, unless there is torrential rain an all in the mean time, which you cannot rule out... Even then on soft going, Kauto should still do it, if I remember correctly the going was soft at Down Royal there in November when he won very easy...
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Our Nail Loney on December 18, 2008, 05:31:09 PM
Also Kempton is a sharp track which will suit Kauto as they would go off at a good pace, and he can pick them off when they get tired... I am talking myself into a bet here...
Title: Re: The Horse racing thread
Post by: Our Nail Loney on December 18, 2008, 06:28:27 PM
If you ae feeling adventurous illdecide you could not go far wrong with throwing in phil taylor to win the darts at 1/2 for a double with Kauto, makes it an 11/4 shot...

Fancy Pettifour for the Long Walk, can't resist taking the 17.0 available on Betfair for the World Hurdle either so watch him break a leg now today.

Binocular is drifting all morning but I still think he'll take all the beating in the Hurdle.

I think Katchit is the value bet in the hurdle. People have it in their heads that he can only run at Cheltenham and I'm sure this is adding a point or two to his price that's unjustified. He's running against three four-year-olds and a mare. Four-year-olds don't have a good record in this race. Katchit should be fit after two good outings which he lost because of ground and huge weight. He's only giving 6lb at worst this time and that to the four-year-olds.

From RTE Sport

Mouse Morris has decided against sending War Of Attrition to the UK for for the King George VI Chase at Kempton and he will instead line up in Sunday's Lexus Chase at Leopardstown.

The 2006 Cheltenham Gold Cup hero has enjoyed a successful return following a two-year absence, scoring on his first two starts before running a good third in the John Durkan at Punchestown.

Morris had been giving Kempton's December 26 feature serious consideration after walking the track last week but he has decided to chase another Grade One prize closer to home.

'We've decided we're going to stay at home,' said the County Tipperary handler.

'The ground is just soft at the moment rather than heavy and the forecast is good so we are taking our chance that is correct. Basically we are sticking to plan A and this is the race he went for the year he won the Gold Cup so hopefully we can follow that route again.

'It was six of one and half a dozen of the other and he has to beat them wherever he goes so we've decided to go to Leopardstown. He ran really well in ground he didn't like at Punchestown last time and I would say he probably needed that run.

'Obviously he was fit because he'd already had two runs but mentally he needed it as it was the first time since he came back that he was running against real quality opposition. He wasn't fully wound up but I would say he's on track now.'

When top quality national horses get injured, do they ever truly come back ?
Its very hard to know really.Iv only been following Horse Racing about 4 years and there havent been too many who have come back from a long lay-off and won some of the top races that I can remember.Brave Incas reappearance a few weeks ago was one of the best performances Iv seen from a horse who had been out for so long,but whether it will go on to win another Champion Hurdle or a World Hurdle is another matter.War of Attrition has done very well but may find 1 or 2 just too good in the big chases this season.

On another matter, all this talk about Binocular and how he has won the Champion Hurdle already(wait till Sizing Europe gets at him),I was just wondering where is Edward Hartys Captain CeeBee this season,if my memory serves me well didnt it beat Binocular at Cheltenham last March?
Our Nail maybe you can answer that one??

Good question.  Cee Bee beat Bincular in the first race of Cheltenham last year.  He was declared to run in a beginers chase in Roscommon last Sept/Oct but didnt go because of the ground and as far as I know there has been no entries since.

Setback curtails Captain Cee Bee's season
 By Tony O'Hehir 20.22PM 4 OCT 2008

CAPTAIN CEE BEE, winner of the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March and 12-1 favourite for the Arkle with Coral and William Hill, is unlikely to run this season.
captainceebeeed
 

The seven-year-old was due to go novice chasing but his trainer Eddie Harty revealed that the J P McManus-owner seven-year-old had met with a setback.

                                                                                   
Harty said: "Unfortunately, Captain Cee Bee has had a setback and is probably going to miss all of this season. There really isn't anything else to say at this stage."

Captain Cee Bee won three of his four starts over hurdles last season before being pulled up at Aintree in April when he was reported to have burst a blood vessel. He beat Binocular, also owned by McManus, when winning at Cheltenham.

You have Binocular from last Saturday I presume.I think its gonna win.11/8 is just too big.Kauto is a stone better on ratings when running right handed(like Kempton) He is going for 3-in a row and Nicholls will be mad to win this after failing in a lot of the big races so far this season.Ruby is back on top and I have never seen Kauto run 2 bad races in a row.
Look at the opposition and I cant see anything that can take it on if Kauto gets in its stride.Im a wee bit worried about ImperiaL Commander,he could improve again and has been supported but this should be a step too far.Poor Exotic Dancer altho I would love to see him do it,seems to be gettin further away.Voy Por Ustedes is hit and miss(has it run since beating Master Minded at Aintree?) but you couldnt be confident on it.Air Force One is a good horse but still has a bit to find.
I suppose if only it was that simple we'd all be at it.I doubled Kauto last Stephens Day with Harchibald in the Xmas Hurdle but that p***k Carberry let me down as usual.Not making the same mistake this year.A big Singles bet on Kauto Star at 11/8.HAPPY xMAS.

I think Exotic Dancer is swerving the King George in favour of the Lexus at leopardstown a few days later
Quote
Barry Simpson, racing manager to owner Sir Robert Ogden, said: "Voy Por Ustedes is a definite runner but at this stage I'm favouring the Lexus Chase for Exotic Dancer, but we will probably keep him in at the 48-hour declaration stage because you never know what can happen with the weather, and we still have to make travel arrangements, the only day he can travel apparently is Tuesday, so we need to get things moving.

"I'm convinced Exotic Dancer is better going left handed, he's not won at Kempton before and I think the Lexus would be a better race for him."

As fir Voy Por, it has had one run back in October, the Old Roan at Aintree, where it was beat by Knowhere, came fourth in the race behind Exotic Dancer and Snoopy Loopy also... Was top weight in this race though and but for a bad mistake two out could have won the race. Though I think the horse is more suited by two and a half (beat Master Minded at Aintree over this distance) rather than the three miles at Kempton.

I think Kauto will take all the beating, as long as the tough Kempton fences don't get him... I will be investing my money on him completing the hat trick this year, think Tidal Bay, last years Arkle winner, will chase him home...

A guy takes his monthly wages and heads to the bookies after work. He backs a few horses but they all finish second so he increases his stakes and backs a few more. They too finish second. Coming to the last race of the evening, he realises he has feck all money left and his wife is going to be majorly pissed off with him, but he can't go home with just what he has left so he sticks it all on a 33-1 shot. The horse is 10 lengths clear but falls at the last fence. The guy who had been screaming and jumping up and down like a madman just stares at the screen and his face goes white.

He leaves like everyone else and when he's outside, it starts lashing rain. He fiddles around in his pocket for change for the bus but he doesn't have any left so he resigns himself to having to walk home in the rain for 90 minutes, face his wife and tell her that he lost his monthly wages.

As he starts walking, the sole of his shoe rips right off and starts flapping in the puddles of rain. He can't take it anymore. He just sits down on the ground and starts crying. A couple of minutes later, the bookie comes out of his shop to lock up and notices the guy sitting on the ground crying. He goes over and asks him if he's okay. The guy explains that he's lost all his money on the horses that day, that his wife is going to kill him, that he can't even afford bus fare and that he has to walk home with the sole of his shoe hanging off.

The bookie says "aw you poor chap" and then reaches into his pocket and takes out a gigantic wad of cash. The guy looks up at the bookie with a stunned look of admiration. The bookie takes the elastic band off the big roll of €50s and says "here you go, wrap this around your shoe".

Gold Cup and Aintree at the tail end of last season? First two times I'd backed him as well!

He rattle fences we know that and its the risk you take when backing him. When he's gotten round he's only been beaten twice in 2 and a half seasons (I think) - once by Denman who isn't there and by a short neck at Aintree (when I think the trainer later admitted the tactics had been wrong.

Given the fact that Denman isn't there and, the record at kempton which OurNail has pointed, you're basically backing him to get round. I think it might be worth a punt at any odds against.
