    I don’t know whether ex "city" boy Nevison is a good human being or not. Neither here nor there.

    I did watch the preview and have to say I wasn’t too impressed with his some of his reasoning, although he does appear to know the form inside out.

    For example, the Queen Mother Champion Chase :

    Master Minded is the best horse in the race, Twist Magic, the second best, he opined. But Master Minded could fall, he continued, as could Twist Magic. Ya don’t say! :roll:

    Therefore, he concluded, that he would be backing Voy Por Ustedes (the worst of the three"), as it has proven form round Cheltenham and represented the "value" in the race.

    The logic of a pro punter. :lol:

    And I expect that you, TWW, are the very epitome of sartorial elegance.

    I find this thread quite distasteful. Criticise the guy for his opinions if you wish, but rushing to judgement on the basis of someone’s appearance, using words like "chav" and "scruff" is, frankly, childish.

    I think The Welsh Wizard was making the point that this is a racing forum and whether anyone, Dave Nevison, Harry Findlay or John Dunlop, dress like "chavs", it matters not a bit.

    At least that’s the way I read it…….but he is Welsh and what’s worse he’s from Cardiff, but he does have a nice selection of ‘dirty macs’!!!! :wink:

    In racing it seems that there are two groups of people who will invite so much vitriol and ignorance.

    Group 1 – Anybody claiming to make money from betting on horses.

    Group 2 – Anybody not sounding like Julian Wilson.

    Dave Nevison appears to fit into both groups.

    That, apparently, is his crime.

    And even worse than that, the old Wizard`s from Llanrumney, Kaardiff. However, he was known as the "Beau Brummell" of South Wales".

    I know have known David quite a number of years now. Well before he got involved with John Best. Overall he is just like many others making a living gambling.

    I note he has started his tipping line again but the last time it failed quite badly.

    Johnny ‘Lights’ Humbrell would have staked more in a month than Dave does in a year and he got by without other incomes from book sales or from writing newspaper articles.

    Very much doubt he would have bothered to spend all day in a television studio for £300 sobs.

    Whilst Dave Nevison may still be able to bet with the Dennis joint my small claim to fame is I got banned by the Essex bookie many years ago.

    The logic of a pro punter. :lol:

    What he actually said was:
    Before the Sandown race Master Minded was not a good jumper, also had an easy lead in the Game Spirit. The Champion at Cheltenham (particularly the second last) will be a bigger test of his jumping.
    Twist Magic fell at the second last last season and it would not be surprising if he were to fall again.
    So taking around 5/2 about any horse that has a reasonable chance of falling is (for him) not the done thing. Logical.
    He will be looking to back Voy Por Ustedes, the third best horse FOR A PLACE ONLY (he thinks Tamarinbleu will get outpaced on goodish ground). So he believes Voy Por nailed on to be placed.

    I do not agree with him but can see his logic.

    Dave Nevison is from my hometown Sevenoaks which as some of you may know is one of the most affluent areas of the UK and thankfully only has a very small number of Chavs.

    I watched the preview programme too and he rather swamped the more informative Mark Howard I thought. Some of things he said made me feel a little uncomfortable in particular calling some horses muppets. Why use such derogatory terms to describe an animal that ultimately provides you with a living? Unnecessary. He also said Oscar Park will not complete the RSA Chase. He may well be right but as Dempsey proved last year you shouldn’t be put off a class horse because you think he will fall.

    I think there were better people RUK could have had on but I don’t think he’s a chav.

    I didn’t much care for Dave’s use of “muppets” as it’s not an epiphet that tells us anything constructive about the animal’s ability, appearance or demeanour. I occasionally used the equally pejorative “trees” and “zombies” in the past, but I’ve learned the error of my ways.

    Conversely, I’ve used – and will continue to use – the likes of “poisonous”, “uncoordinated”, “hairy”, “size of a small chicken” and the like when race-reading in points, for whilst they’re all cosmetically harsher than “muppets”, I’d counter that they do inform to some greater or lesser extent.

    I’m not sure which one out of Mackenzie and Harris described the unpredictable Welsh mare De Chelly as “hormonal” in this year’s Annual, much less how they actually proved this!

    Personally, I think Nevison knows a lot more about horse racing than either you or your husband. I have a sneaking suspicion he dresses better than either of you, as well. No offence.

    If no offence was intended, then why post an insult at all? Why not just post the facts as you see them and not snide comments?
