    Steve Mellish has just exposed this mob on RUK – stewards will have to act – no hiding place this time for Hooray Henry and Bradburne.

    Let me guess, 2 weeks for the jockey, 40 days for the horse, 5 grand for the trainer, and sweet FA for the poor sods who backed it on the basis it may be trying to win!

    When i see stuff like today at Aintree, I feel  for genuine connections of horses that give their all when they run, run well, even get placed and then are put up another couple of pounds by handicapper for it

    The handicap system encourages cheating yet very little is done to prevent this. So what should be altered to encourage honest trainers/owners who want to run their horses on their true merit consistently?   <br>

    Handicap system does not encourage cheats

    Thats like saying shops encourage shoplifters, homeowners encourage burglars etc

    These people are breaking the rules of racing for reasons only known by them

    I must say Henry Daly horses this term although very little evidence have been running awfully strange. <br>They seem to be hitting flat spots during the ‘run’ – <br>Rakalackey at Kempton<br>Briery Fox at Worcester <br>Vaughan at Sandown <br>Martha Kinsman also springs to mind.

    Perhaps the interesting part would be how many of them have been prevented making any further progress due to errors. From 25 chase runners this term – a good number of failures to complete spring to mind Waterloo Son, Green Tango, Alderburn etc.

    I won’t be amongst the order to be backing Down’s Folly at Ludlow tomorrow at 11/10 (!)  BUT judged on today’s effort from OPERA DE COEUR getting a horse from A to B at whatever pace appeared to be the objective.

    Mr Bradburne got a seven day ban.  Not enough IMO, but better than nothing.<br>As far as I saw, the horse was given little more than an exercise canter.

    Trainer was exonerated.<br>Even the stewards could see the obvious in Bradbourne’s ride- after all it was a 3 runner affair!

    Oh please – whilst not excusing the ride, there was no way in this world that Opera De Coeur would have beaten Lennon.  No way at all.

    It reminded me of Hand Inn Hand’s first run in a chase – at Chepstow if I remember rightly – which I even posted up in what used to be called the "eyecatchers" section on here.

    <br>To be fair though that time I think it was One Knight that went off like a nutter on Sunny D.  Today both the other horses looked to have been on the red bull.  

    Lennon and Fair Along setting the pace in the Arkle.  Nipper Reed will be cheering.
