 it is always worth keeping an eye on the Irish journeymen jockeys like Richie McClernon, Paddy Brennan etc. They are up and down the motorways to Kelso Perth and out in to the West Country tracks often for one ride. I got Paddy Brennan on  20/1 today, Towering and Geraghty on Herewegoherewego at 11/2, 2 singles and a double. Geraghty came second but I collected anyway. Thats was Geraghtys only ride in Market Rasen today so they must have been cobfident.   

Along similar, but different!, lines Gordon Elliott has sent 2 horses to Wolverhampton today.
1725 Fairy Flute about 7/1
1855 Jock Talk about 9/1
I'm doing 10 on each plus 10ew double

I did Jock Talk too. So much for that!
Fairy Flute withdrawn?
Elliott often sends a few to Perth Kelso etc. Worth a look but not always a winner.

Noticed Elliot's 2 at Wolverhampton, my immediate thoughts when I see that is - - At least one of them will be a false favourite and it will be layed all day on Betfair by those who know and some nag will romp home that Elliot and the gang will have backed to the hilt. Being the arch Coup spotter that I think I am I backed Three Star General (Trainer - David Pipe) in the 5.25 because Elliot spent a lot of time in Martin Pipe's yard. No joy this time but my logic is flawless - assume they are al crooked from the get go. :) :)

Saw the same last week. A strong favourite trained by Only Murphy across the water beaten by a 20 to 1 trained by Only Murphy.
A regular occurrence in Irish Racing of course with the dominance of two individuals

Happens nearly every feckin day, but it's about picking the right race! Missed one solid yesterday in the first at Fairyhouse. Elliott's Park Paddocks was favourite or thereabouts and his second string, Commentarious was 14/1. Was tempted, but I got a tip for Rachael Blackmore's ride at 6/1. It came nowhere of course, but Commentarious went off at 9/2 and romped home!
Love seeing Big Gord in his Betfair woolly hat!

See At the Races has lost the rights to show Irish Racing from 1st Jan 19. Surely not good for the sport.

As long as the barcode can be read, or the numbers on the barcode can be read then yeah you should be paid out in full.

Of course. Some old biddies wait until the following April to cash in their previous Grand National winnings.

any thoughts on it yourself, Buveur D,Air very short, worth opposing? Ive have might bite backed for gold cup but fearful of sizing John. Altoir worth opposing in the champion chase?
