I’ve only got a telly; darn’t have satellite things or I’d never get any work done; however, I am getting broadband [probably the last person in the country to do so] so may be able to watch more on the computer. Bit of a technophobe y’see!March 20, 2008 at 23:48 #153045AndyRACParticipant

Not sure where you’re coming from with that comment about Fairyhouse disraelite- it has one gentle hill up to Ballyhack but is as close to a flat track as you’ll get- if there are "lots of hills and valleys" they’ve been hidden from me for the last thirty-odd years!
Ok carvills, maybe "lots of hills and valleys" was pushing it a bit. But even the climb to Ballyhack and the downhill run down the far side might be a bit too undulating for Beef. Leopardstown, on the other hand, is as flat as they come.
Or maybe I’m talking through my pipe….March 21, 2008 at 11:38 #153115disraeliteMember

Ballistraw is a big player on Monday with a major National pedigree. He’s related to Scottish National winner and Aintree third Moorcroft Boy (Well Mannered was MB’s dam and is Ballistraw’s grand dam). He’s got to be in the shake up.
Ballycullen Boy is the dark horse of the race. He should have had three wins on the bounce but for coming down when going well at Galway in July and unlike a lot in this year’s field he goes well on most types of ground. He’s another who is very well related.
If they’re still upright I am confident they will both be prominent at the business end of the race.March 21, 2008 at 16:42 #153160doyleyParticipant

The Handicap seems about right.
But please look at the past Winners’ prices, they contradict my original sentence??
Going off the last 10 years, the race should not attract substantial bets..if ever there was a race for the Legendary Pin or backing an old favourite, this is it..

Disraelite – you should go to Leopardstown. It is not flat; downhill from the winning post to the motorway bend then a steady climb all the way to three out.
TV is very deceptive; I never understood the concept of the Sandown hill till I went there.March 22, 2008 at 12:42 #153283
