    Shes a great mare…On my other selection, Kemboy, a few bad jumps in there, but i don’t think the way he was ridden suited him, enjoys being more prominent..I understand the ride, as the ground probably means they were wanting to ride him quietly, but it didnt work out IMO.

    I backed the same two, Jack; agree with you on Kemboy – should’ve raced closer. However, in running thought the same about Shattered Love; previously looked one paced and showed a lot more speed than previously. tbh I only backed her due to thinking it would be very soft ground suiting her stamina. Despite the 8mm of rain overnight the going is bordering on good-soft. Had I known that then tbh I wouldn’t have backed the winner! :wacko:

    EDIT: Apologies, RUK got the time wrong – ignore the above, it is in fact truly soft ground.

    value is everything

    Same old, same old.

    I thought Terrefort had a chance after Invitation Only made a howler but you could see Shattered Love was going best from some way out and although some punters would have been hoping for a fall at the last, I don’t like winning that way.

    Nice performance from the mare yet a bit ironic when Shattered Love was getting 6 lbs but was bigger than Terrefort :scratch:

    Terrefort didn’t look like he was crying out for 3 miles and I reckon the Ryanair might be a better target for him next year.

    Well done winners and good to see well backed horses winning.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    The JLT form on show today with shattered love at Fairy House looks a very good race and will be interesting to see if she makes the running today.
