    Hi everyone

    I want to get a full picture of this trainer, please add any information no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. He strikes me as being rather unassuming and laid back.  After reading yesterdays RP "Stable Tour" I will add honest to that duo.<br>………………………………………………………………………….<br>Genari<br>4 g Generous – Sari<br>00600-5

    "I think he’s got a serious chance at Southwell today, as he’s in good nick. ……… working better than last year, and it will be difficult to find excuses if he is beaten."<br>………………………………………………………………………….

    1st  Genari  6/1

    Eventually I will pull it all together and produce a report.

    Hi rory

    it’s not that bad. What do you think is wrong with it?  I know the video is too small, and generally it’s a bit boring.

    I like his 2yo for sale called Animator, which he describes as "a good walker".

    That should come in handy.

    <br>Mike,

    Sounds like the ideal sort for cartoon racing.

    Almost certainly badly drawn though…

    I’ve always been a little ambivalent about Paul Cole since reading — oh, 7 or 10 years back — that his establishment was voted the Worst place of employment in a survey by the Stablelads Association ???<br>Conditions sounded something akin to a Sugar Plantation from the 18th century, but I guess things have changed for the better by now.

    He’s looking for a Van Driver at the moment but I’d say hoofhearted’s post above has put a dent in any enthusiasm anybody may have had for the position.

    Hi gang

    I will resist the temptation of slagging you all. I know you’re bursting to say something intelligent, instead of sniggering like schoolboys.  Oh the sight of the strain on those uniforms. A homosexual cure if ever there was one.

    Think, I vaguely remember a book about Paul Cole, does anyone know it’s title?

    byefrom<br>carlisle

    Ps hoofhearted that was a fair comment, mate.<br>

    I noticed that the RP twice made reference to Mr Cole’s tipping abilities.

    Carlisle,

    the website content is full of errors with race names and horse names rendered incorrectly; it doesn’t inspire confidence. Consider this mythical exchange:

    PC: has that two year old been shod yet?<br>Head Lad: the one that was lame yesterday?<br>PC: only because of a poorly fitted shoe, but that’s the one.<br>HL: right. You definitely said "shod" did you?<br>PC: of course I did!<br>HL: not "shot" then.<br>PC: no!!!<br>HL: oops…….

    Hi rory

    I see what you mean, I haven’t read it that carefully. There as some pretty pictures on it though and it does give you a feel for the place.

    I am right in thinking that Johnny Francome is his landlord?  I wonder how that came about.

    "Data analysed Nov-96 to Nov-06.  Only trainers who had at least 100 unique owners analysed.   Article created 10-Nov-06. Stats may have changed since.":

    http://www.flatstats.co.uk/articles/tra … wners.html

    includes the following:

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><br>This column shows the percentage of owners who won at least £10,000 in prize money. Paul Cole is the best with 55% of his owners winning at least £10,000.

    This column shows the percentage of owners who won at least £25,000 in prize money. Again Paul Cole is the best with 37% of his owners winning at least £25,000. <br><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    <br>though there is a quote at the top of the page:

    "…which equates to an investment of nearly £30,000 in your first year.    As the table shows, few owners will recover that initial cost."

    <br>best regards
