    Very dissapointed with Jamie Codd this week, got beat into 4th in a bumper mid week, twice ran his horse into the back of two different runners when challanging in the straight then dropped his hands nearly a furlong out and lost a comfortable third place on the line. (Yes I did back it EW)

    That was nothing compared with the crazy ride he gave Agus A Vic yesterday, even Arkle would have strugged to win from where he started to pick up the leaders yesterday

    In feel Racing Post were far too complimentary in their review…I quote " Held up in rear, he (Agus A Vic) seemed to travel with the same style as he normally does, and his rider wasn´t even pressing the panic button when he had four or five horses in front of him after the second last."

    SHOCKING misjudgement I’d call it!

    Probably little consolation for you – but he did pick up five day’s for the Down Royal run.

    Wasn’t at all good though as there is virtually no doubt he would have come home third otherwise.

    Top class horseman. One of the best amateurs in the business along with JT, Nina, Derek and Mikey O’Connor.

    Remember the ride he gave Character Building last year?

    That makes his ride yesterday worth topping up his ban to a fortnight, I can’t wait for Nina’s foot to get better so I’ve got an amateur to trust…and one that’s better than 95% of the pros!

    I’ll remember the one he gave Agus A Vic yesterday a lot longer :cry:

    If I was the trainer of Agus Vic, Cheltenham, I’d have battered him.

    He was 7/8 lengths behind at the 3rd last and was beaten by 12 lengths. I, too, backed him, but the horse just wasn’t good enough on the day imo.

    Before the race the trainer was very open and very bullish on ATR about his chances, said he was spot on, said it’s the best he’s ever seen Agus and his target for this season was The Irish Grand National, made yesterday’s race sound as much a formality as Dunguib’s had been earlier, as it should have been on all known form

    From that I’d deduce it was the ride not the horse that wasn’t good enough, mind you he hasn’t a "snowballs" chance in a race like that on yesterday’s showing

    I thought he gave him far too much to do, and not for the first time; only asked him to pick up at the second last, where it looked like he promptly wasn’t done any favours by the fall of Mattock Ranger.

    I’d done Ballistraw so no axe to grind.

    At the end of the day i don’t doubt Codd’s ability especially after the ride he gave Character Building at the Festival so i’m just putting it down to a couple of misjudged rides and hopefully he’ll be back on form soon.

    Nor do I doubt his ability but these were two very poor efforts, you don’t see Nina screwing up like that

    Yeah i agree that Nina is a better rider but i think it was a bit of both yesterday that it was a misjudged ride but i would also say Agus a Vic just wasn’t good enough.

    People don’t seem to realise that Agus A Vic was closer 3 out than at the finish! Wasn’t good enough on the day!

    Exactly THM. JJ wasn’t at his best on him but the horse was well beaten anyway. 4/6 about him in a Hunter Chase against a horse who had won at very decent point at Dromahane (Dun Doire, Rule Supreme, Juveigneur, Hi Cloy, Travino & Afistfullofdollars in behind) was a ridiculous price anyway.

    A lot of pocket talking going on here methinks.

    T

    hen he was eased again rather than contiuing to pick up thre leaders he let them get away while he sat still

    I was on at 6/5 not 4/6 in a large double with Dunguib, there are several good lines of form to the point, all giving Agus best part of a stone in hand

    A lot of pocket talking going on here methinks.

    Yes the pocket sure is grumbling ….its £1550 lighter thanks to the two rides but I’m not one of those punters who look to blame someone when my horses get beat… except one or two of Paul Carberry’s photo finish faux pas
