    I don’t know what was amiss with Neville’s Cross, he went off at 5/1,
    but should have been pulled up before half way, he didn’t travel at
    all. He was pulled up before 3 from home, a long way detached, I’ll
    try and see if the stable or jockey was forthcoming with any comment :unsure:

    Neville’s Cross never looked happy out there today Graham, hopefully he’s okay. He he probably should have been pulled up. I Lil Rockerfeller ran a blinder under 11st 12lbs to lose it close home.

    Hope you have better luck with your bets tomorrow mate.

    Just got back and catching up with all the action. So sorry to see the horses didn’t work out for you Graham and McFabulous was disappointing for both of us considering his last run.
    Tomorrow is another day so good luck with your choices.

    I’m off to catch up with the rest of the action and sort my horses out for tomorrows compys
    Best of luck.

    Just following on from my comments about the Thyme Hill’s race and the pace,
    or lack of it, that was set. The 3m handicap race run 35 minutes later over
    the same 3m was run in a time nearly 5 seconds faster by the 123 rated Hill
    Sixteen. Make of that what you will :unsure:

    It certainly doesn’t seem to add up Graham..I’ve just watched that race and was beginning to wonder if they were going to walk the whole 3 miles..The horses must have been thinking they were out for a gentle stroll and then surprised to find they were actually required to run..it took them sometime to get into a rhythmn and some never did McFabulous almost sat down on one of the hurdles and I thought his jumping was messy and sporadic, at the end he was eased as PP passed him for 2nd place he’s better than that.

    Thymne Hill, in comparison, ran a cracking race and it will be interesting to see what happens if they meet again funny ol’ day..roll on tomorrow. :whistle: Jac

    Thanks Jac!! I’m hopeful about Thyme Hill for the Stayers, he’s still improving but it’s a long season, we’ll see what happens. Graham made a good point about the pace of the race too.

    I’ll happily take a few more winners tomorrow. Hopefully you guys will get some points too.

    Just betting those I have mentioned, which are the 3 im my Pick 3 competition,
    but I’ll do my reserves too. the 1st 1 is about to run at Newcastle

    12.20 Newcastle – ACDC 22/1 Paddy power

    he used to be a fair horse but kind of lost his way. he’s been tumbling
    down the weights, and if he has kept any of his old form he would have a
    shout here. I’ve done him E/W 3 places.

    Good Luck with your bets today Graham!

    My last two in the Pick 3 Contest are 1:50 Newb – Tea Clipper & 3:35 Newb – Zanza & my last two reserves 3:00 Newb – Aye Right & 3:15 Newc – The Butcher Said With the way my picks have been performing lately, I’d stay far away!

    Notched a few points in TTF with Monkfish. Epatante to go in the Fighting Fifth.

    Well done Jac and Andre, Epatante looked superb. I thought (hoped) that
    she might need the race, but she was absolute class. That’s a great one
    to have as your star horse Jac. Well done guys :yahoo:

    Thanks Graham! The way she easily accelerated passed Sceau Royal was so impressive. A lovely horse and a great selection for your star horse Jac, well done.

    Seeing these top horses comeback year after year is what makes NH racing for me. Brave, gutsy horses that we can watch as they progress to greatness. Lovely stuff!

    Jac,
    Well done with Staring Epatante, she’ll score you lots of points I reckon.. :yahoo:
    a suitable replacement for Bristol Di Mai

    I thought Monkfish looked a potential star today aswell over at Fairyhouse, could be a Gold Cup horse next year

    Thanks Graham, Andre and Nathan..over the moon with the way Epatante performed today she truly is a gutsy mare and on course for the Christmas Hurdle according to Nicky Hendrson. Yes a good substitute for BDM Nathan I feel better now. :rose:
    Shudder to think what could have happened when Not So Sleepy stopped dead and refused to jump dislodging his jockey and running Silver Streak out of the race. Thank goodness all came through that unscathed.

    Well done also with Monkfish Andre a nice little points booster today and your lovely Honeysuckle is running tomorrow.

    Somehow I managed to find the winner of the Ladbroke Trophy Cloth Cap 9/1 but didn’t have a bean on him..still a few points in Neil’s compy is a bonus. Thought he jumped like a stag and I’m going Grand National AP route on him.

    Best of luck tomorrow all my select 3 down the pan at Wolverhampton today. Hope you all did better haven’t checked yet. :rose:

    Jac :good:
