    The way it ran probably Jonjo and Nicky said they didn’t wan’t it.
    :lol:

    I think if it was kept light hearted it would be good to hear peoples opinions on why people think some horses end up at Nicky Henderson’s and in this case David Pipe…….it’s nothing to do with JP’s relationship with Jonjo which is cast in stone…………anyone any ideas?

    Personally I think it’s common sense to have a spread of trainers. ‘Don’t put your eggs in one basket’ – if you have your horses with one trainer and there is a virus – you’ve had it. Can’t see the problem. I wonder if he is planning to send any to Ditcheat? And why not?

    He’s had horses all over the place for years so why not at Pipe’s?

    Can I turn that question around, Stan? …..and ask why he hasn’t had runners with the Pipe yard until now?

    Does he feel happier with David at the helm rather than Martin?

    Not necessarily a shut-down but Pipe’s stable ran terribly at the Paddy Power meeting last Novemebr and also at Cheltenham a couple of years ago.

    The only reason I can see why JP has sent a horse to the Pipes is because he is lining up some monster punt in a Newton Abbot Seller :lol:

    Nothing wrong with Jonjo – JP’s an awful judge of equine talent. I read in The Sun’s interview with Clive Smith on Saturday that JP was due to buy Kauto Star in France.

    Unfortunately, Smith outbid McManus, who decided to purchase some donkey that hasn’t won a race since.

    Amazing that Smith, in such a short space of time, has acquired the respective favourites for both the Queen Mother and Gold Cup. Jim Lewis had Best Mate, Edredon Bleu and Impek. McManus, for all of his financial clout, has nowt.
