Thanks, the drift had me worried for a while. I wonder how far it would have won by if it wasn't hampered!

yes, couldnt believe how much the Racing TV team made of the runner up being unlucky when Shiskin had a horrible trip round, made a few mistakes, was nearly brought down and still managed to win.

Dam I have the painters in as the betting Was on for the last one of them said PUT THE KETTLE ON was gonna wack a tenner on it ffs

Sometimes you are better doing it that way..... not too many winners at Cheltenham win a hurdle race at Downpatrick but this one did, should have backed it myself because of the local connection.

Well lucky15 was crap as i expected but it was done quick. Looking at the races more carefully should have took Shiskin and favourite in last. But was only few pound done quick at work..

But home from work and thought Honeysuckle was a great bet at 11/4 so singled that.

So one main bet of day wins happy enough with that. Have too study form and put bets on for tomorrow instead of rushing it at work lol. But i know i fancy a few tomorrow as already looked the other day and liked it more than todays.

I would never let him live it down! I remember Bryony winning and how emotional an occassion it was.
It's quite striking how things have changed over the years. Male Jockeys seem to struggle to break through due to weight issues and women are now proving themselves as equals.
When I was young I just thought that females enjoyed horse riding so much because it gave them stimulation while hidden in plain sight! :p
If ever a jockey won a race by pure horsemanship it was Rachel Blackmore on Honeysuckle. Hats off for a fantastic ride and what a move up the inside round the home turn.
All in all its been a great days racing so far, every race has been really competitive and no excuses for any horses that have been beaten.

Yeah like i said yesterday she is a great jockey. Easily as good as any male jockey and great that she and Bryony get top rides from leading trainers.

Looked at next race and can't pick anything i fancy so just stick a couple quid of winnings on Espoire De Guye.

Hi All,

Pretty new to the forum but wanted to drop in with my thoughts. Be lucky guys:

1:30 - Shishkin (Won 6/1)
2:10 - Fakir D'Doudiries (EW) (2nd 3/1)
2:50 - The Conditional (EW) (Won 15/2)
3:30 - Pentland Hills (EW) (9th 9/1)
4:10 - Benie De Dieux (2nd 4/6)
4:50 - Imperial Aura (EW) (Won 4/1)
5:30 - Carefully Selected (UR)

Would be good to hear what everyone else is backing.

Charlie (McCann)

3 out of 7 on day one, more losers than winners but decent prices so will be a profit to level stakes. Here's tomorrows:

1:30 The Big Breakaway (EW)
2:10 Minella Indo
2:50 Birchdale (EW)
3:30 Defi Du Seuil
4:10 Tiger Roll
4:50 Aramax (EW)
5:30 Appreciate It

Be lucky.

Tomorrow 2 of my ante post bets run, imperial aura in the 4.50 that I took 14/1 for (now 7.1 favourite) and Captain Guiness in the 1.30, took 16's, now 14's.

I like No comment in the Ultima

In the 5.30 I think Carefully Selected is possibly the banker of the meeting (at odds against), and will also be doing a forecast with Lord Du Mesnil, which i think is clear second best in the race.

Well as I didn't see a single race, just checked the results, so much for my banker haha. The 14/1 ante post on Imperial Aura made up for it though, by all accounts Captain Guiness was going well when brought down too.

It looks like you did ok today :) It wasn't one of my best days but watching Blackmore nip in on the inside rail while Townend seemed to be sleeping was my highlight of the day.

Unlucky with your bets but I'm guessing you finished just ahead?

Finished up. Got home from work just in time for 2.10 race so bet the horse that came 2nd. As was WH got money back so singled the other one at 5/1. Rest of races were too short prices so that was last bet as missed last race as just home from doctors.

Looked at the 5.30 there but not going to bother with that either.
