You are a motherf……. National Hunt genius!!!!
Samuel Jackson at 100-1, well done Sir! A very good read and analysis of his PtP form.December 14, 2017 at 12:55 #1331939

To be fair, the kid Neesom didn’t actually tip it up. He said “Samuel Jackson is the best of the 100/1 shots but I can’t see any of them troubling the market leaders”.December 14, 2017 at 13:00 #1331940

YES, but he mentioned the point to point form and somehow gave a clue why he would be a good 100-1 shot.
And a winner is a winner, especially at 100-1. I didn’t have many single winners at that price in my life.

He is head and shoulders the best pundit/analyser. He entertains (as should be the case on a TV show). It’s not just the long price winners and his knowledge and enthusiasm. He is a realist, doesn’t suffer fools gladly, has no airs and graces – you get no bull. First rate are his partnership with Stewart Machin, his turn of phrase, self-depreciation, sense of humour, satire, wit and puns. After the last at Taunton today: “Cheque en Blanc will hope to build on that but I wouldn’t bank on it!”December 14, 2017 at 16:49 #1331973
He is a true NH pundit who doesn’t like to tell you how many thousands were just placed on the short priced fav, but who seems to be a regular on the pointing scene and fully understands the game.
Doesn’t seem to be that mad after the jolly and is never afraid of putting up one at double-digits.December 14, 2017 at 18:05 #1331986

Old Neesom didn’t exaclty ‘have’ a 100/1 winner today though did he Ruby? He backed another selection in the race and suggested he couldn’t see Samuel Jackson making the frame.
Even the most devoted Neesom-ite wouldn’t have been scrambling to get on. Judging by the thread title, you are hanging on his every word though. 😉
All that said, I do like Neesom a lot. He is one of my favourite RUK presenters. I like the dry wit and his gentle straightforward style. He is certainly an excellent judge of the pointers and hunters and is obviously a true believer in low-grade jumping in general. He’s the sort of man you’d like to spend an afternoon with in a quiet country RUK pub.December 14, 2017 at 18:12 #1331987

Fully agreed. That’s why he deserves this thread…. and just let me celebrate a 100-1 winner, please.December 14, 2017 at 18:46 #1331990

Well done Ex-Ruby.
If Neesom said he has a better than a 100/1 shot’s chance then it is a tip in my book.
Don’t need to believe a horse will trouble the favourites for a 100/1 shot to be a good bet.
Well done Mr Neesom too.value is everythingDecember 14, 2017 at 22:12 #1332018

WD ExRL; sorting the wheat from the chaff in the “best of the rest/could spring a surprise” paragraph that comes at the bottom of a writeup takes a bit of doing. Great betDecember 15, 2017 at 00:21 #1332030

Well done Ruby, even though he may seem to some as not actually tipping it,
a nod’s as good as a wink to a blind horseDecember 15, 2017 at 09:19 #1332047
