    Well here it is my gutted topic.

    Fair play to My Way De Solzen I thought they made the wrong choice going for the Arkle, I was wrong.

    Fair Along bloody hampered by the faller.

    Gutted.

    I don’t think it’s going to be my day.

    My horse (Amaretto) was repeatedly bumped in the first.

    And, in the 2nd, I had bits on 3 different horses. 2 of them fell at the 2nd last and badly hampered the other!

    As the Queen Mum said after Devon Loch "That’s racing".

    I was put off MWDS after Barry Dennis bismarcked him, why did I listen to the fat oaf.:biggrin:

    What about a World Hurdle, Arkle, Gold Cup treble next year. That would be something.

    Anyone else think RJ gave Fair Along an absolute pig pf a ride??

    The horse ended up mid-field with big horses either side of him and was never jumping as well as usual until towards the end when it saw some light.

    If the start meant that it had to start mid-field then surely he either had to get it close to the front and take the risk that it would still stay or put it out wider on the track to let him see his fences???

    In the end the faller didn’t sop him winning, though I think he would have got within 2 lenghs.

    I would still fancy Fair along for a rematch at Aintree…

    <br>Can’t really agree with that. Fair Along was never really travelling like he usually does. I was quite happy though as he finds when really asked which he did again just got hampered and My Way De Solzen had flown and won well to be fair.

    After Fair Along not really travelling and Detriot City’s nightmare performance I’m just beginning to wonder if the Hobbs stable is just not firing quite right at the moment.

    I had Juveigneur, Mon Mome and Distant Thunder ew in the William Hill. As they turned for home I thought "I hope Mon Mome wins as I’ve got him at 20’s, no matter if he doesn’t one of them is bound to win."

    Or perhaps (God forbid) that Triumph just is not as good as some thought?

    I don’t think we saw the real fair along and detroit city today for one moment.  Neither was travelling at any stage in their respective races.  Hopefully their prices may become inflated come Aintree and money lost can be regained.

    <br>I think thats an easy kneejerk reaction after basically one race, Champion Hurdle (after all Fair Along didn’t run THAT badly).

    Subsequent events have proved last years Triumph to be top notch.

    I could have been more gutted.

    I had planned to lay MWDS but his price went out so I didn’t. That saved me a few quid.

    I sat out the Champion Hurdle which was good as I would have never seen that winner (plus I tinkered with the idea of also backing Hardy to a place).

    Then I almost backed Distant Thunder (was the obvious one on the trends). I laid the forecast favourite instead (little Brick).

    That photo would have done me in.

    So, down for the day, but still breathing.

    I only backed Fair Along so no further losses. Only having one more bet at the Festival (well already had it) and thats Exotic Dancer in the Gold Cup.

    40/1, 16/1, 50/1 winners already. God help everyone lol.

    aaftershock was it you who INSISTED to me that Fair Along would front run in the Arkle? I don’t think it could of won even if it did fron run though, I thought My Way De Solzen gave a fanastic performance even if its task was made easier. I got the horse worng but interestingly if you were backing him for the Gold up next year you probably would of preferred for him to get beat!
