    Has anyone heard anything about this horse? Why such a long layoff?

    Barney, she had a run on the flat in October,reported that her saddle slipped.

    I believe she picked up an injury when she fell, when prominent, in Denman’s race at Cheltenham last year.

    I hope she comes back something like. I remember her run in race where she fell behind Exotic Dancer and Our Vic. She was well backed and running really well until a soft mistake. There is a good three mile race in her.

    Can’t believe she’s so short against Newmill- has something to find on form and surely wants 2 1/2m- Newmill is now a backable price at 2/1 on Betfair- is this a record for a horse put in at 4/9 in the Post? Looks a good bet to me!

    Perhaps THEY knew that he is a horse with a history of physical problems that since his reappearnce when quickly tailing off in the Morgiana in November 2006 that he horse is a shadow of his former self.

    Who ‘knew’ brainbox?

    I ‘knew’ he showed by far his best form in the past on good ground.

    Why on earth should he have done so again on heavy today?

    He drifted because of the ground. It is all in the form book, if you know how to read it. I am sick and tired of idiots like you trying to make out every race is bent, because a favourite (backed by mugs) loses, under conditions that do not suit it!

    It isn’t rocket science, Charlie D (minus).

    Edited…

    Talking about completely the wrong horse…more humblie pie when you’re ready waiter…

    Re-edited…

    I was talking about the right horse…waiter, dispose of this humble pie immediately…

    Didn’t Newmill (comprehensively) beat Macs Joy over hurdles, and run a close third to Nickname/Kicking, on heavy ground, brainbox?

    That’s not to say anything untoward was going on today – as it happens I think davidjohnson has pretty much said it all – but you can’t explain Newmill’s effort away just on account of the ground supposedly not being suitable.

    Newmill has plenty of form to suggest he is effective on soft/heavy ground. I think your outburst against Charlie D is OTT there Pegwell Bay.

    If you think Newmill’s defeat of (a below form) Mac’s Joy on heavy ground was Newmill’s best hurdles run, then you are about as deluded as Charlie D, by around 8lbs – brainbox.

    And if you think the race won by Nickname was anything to get excited about, see above. Again, it was way below Newmill’s best, over fences.

    I suppose you think Kicking King put up a performance equalling his Gold Cup and King George wins in the same race too? :roll:

    DJ,

    I do not dispute that Newmill is effective on soft/heavy, but he has always been below his best form on it, by some way.

    You seem to be under the illusion that everyone bar you thinks a horse will run up to it’s best each and every time it races. The point I am making is that you can’t say Newmill was beaten today because of the ground, as he has plenty of form (in the last couple of years and as a novice) which says, if right physically, he’d have handled it without any trouble.

    He didn’t need to have been at his best in this field though did he.I really don’t think the ground was a valid excuse. I’m happy to agree to disagree though.
