    Stav, me and Lottie (as she insisted I call her) went for a curry after the gig – mint chicken at Spices on Ascot High Street, don’t know what made me choose that dish but won’t be ordering it again. Not a patch on my Texas spit roast after racing at Newmarket the other week (me, Charlene Spiteri and the drummer) – sorry that was sick.

    Ascot was the wrong gig. What serious punter was going to chance their money on these team races, and anyway Chicken Charlotte is crumby.

    Glenn – you old drumbeater – Cotton left for mainly personal betting reasons rather than the big bad wolves ganging up on him, but yes the jungle became dark and depressing for him and his heroic leap from the waterfall into civvy street may well have been an inspired vertical movie drop and possibly something many doubters on here should think about. Your campaign although strong and admirable in intention is rather like a praying mantis rubbing its gawky legs to ward off the biggest insect eating snake that ever popped out of the earth. Cotton’s exit philosophy -<br> " if the wolves get too bad and ugly – get out of the jungle " <br>is something all betting gurus must always consider and why<br>well to quote Lake -‘ Life’s too short, have fun, and there a more pies and better ones around the corner. <br>(On the other hand Glenn I do rather enjoy your irascibility with the hairy ones)

    Kotijket – You have reprieved your drip of days thread several times by your innovative fresh approach to what many now describe a dull game

    Cubby – So you are an old romantic at hart and certainly the old spat argument does hold some water – particualrly on a wet dank grey, monday afternoon, in Lingfield Park car park :argue: Give DD my best regards when you speak and good luck to you ‘the most loved on the blue circuit’

    Lester Piggot – Longfellow I have removed your piece, although written I believe on good authority, you have given too much to racing and recieved too many frown lines from your wayward course to recieve a Mr Pastry laughing piece late in your career. As Piggot’s riding career does still continue :scratchchin: she’s a real beaut

    flatcapgamble…Raciing has gone to the dog’s and I therefore  must be in the best situ to clean up – Who’ll give me 5/1 the tote cleans up after the last race :laugh:

    Gamble I beleave that Racecourse Bookmakers are like Flowers.<br>Some only flower during a short gestation period.<br>Others are there all year but not very nice to look at.

    But all flowers  nead a little water,

    Or at least protection from a blistering sun.

    Without them it will be like the gobby Desert dont you think.

    Gamble more enjoyment talking to you than actually winning in running.

    If I am first to the ever lasting.I promise I will let you know the oportunites if any up there.(I Hope)

    Dont forget Starlin ,Hitler,  and Goballs, have little one bedroom flats in the same block.and love nothing better than a pint of Cider and a chat.

    I surpose they may be a bit argumentative but not..as bad as the Blue Room.

    Good luck

    UR well it’s a bit :shhh:

    He wrote this at 815 re brighton pubs

      The mags was one of my favourite watering holes after Guineau gap sessions. The chaps didn’t like it, said it was full of psueds. Whenever I was there it was full of drunks, albeit slightly posh drunks.

    <br> You’re quite right something has happened to him !

    flatcapgamble…:coolwink:

    <br>p.s thought I would add something

    Cubone UR is a great communicater and<br>of course an inveterate worder.<br>I belive he has left the more serious side of board war<br>to concentrate more on the <br>fun element. I much enjoy his stuff<br>and long may he continue.

    As for me I rarely write in this section<br>and for many reasons am not now suited for it.<br>Will hopefully speak again before the year is out<br>but putting writing on the shelf <br>is far easier said than done :biggrin:

    It’s easy to make the tote offer fixed odds.<br>They decide what is the maximum affordable liability and for each runner there is a display showing current price and largest amount of money that can be wagered.<br>Also if someone wishes open price (or sp) he could be allowed to do so.

    So we have a tote a pool bet but allowing fixed odds to take place off the flutuating market pool odds.

    I take it that the tote would last a week at those terms.

    Any one disagree,.

    flatcapgamble… I heard him singing in the ol’ chair last night

          :sing: Now that you’re gone
           All that’s left from the band of old…
           cough cough
           I wait in the darkness
           of my lonely rooooom
           filled with sadness
           filled with gloom

      I thought I heard sobbing
      but it wasn’t
      it was fiendish laughter that
