    Gosden’s outsider of 2 in a maiden with Havlin on it. You might be lucky :)

    Tony Martin, although he seems to have lost his touch a bit lately.

    He seems to like to use one of the most incompetent jockeys in world racing of late though – you know you’re up the creek when you see "R. Mullen" next to your horse.

    Would be wrong to mention names but there’s a woman in Ireland who’s very very good :wink:

    Sometimes thing’s arent quite what they seem…….John Quinn likes to have a tilt at the ring Kiama Bay owned by his wife Sue :shock: landed a nice touch at Hamilton Yesterday one of Sue’s other horses :shock: Violent Velocity (IRE) landed another touch at Newmarket….. Other than that I’m saying nothing as walls have ears so you will have to use your imagination :wink: If he sends a horse down south they seldom get beat if the form is suspect and the money is down.

    Jumps: Peter Montieth is very shrewed and you should watch every video you can if he has a runner. He does tend to train them on the racecourse so watch for him running horses who have run well until about 3 out. He’s brilliant at finding bad races for them and a great believer in keeping his business among a few friends and having 200 quid at 20/1 rather than having 1000 quid at 3/1 so never be put off by price.

    A friend of a friend ( :roll: ) had a few nods from the Wigham stable a couple of months back – I got on one of them (a bit late, mind) but it duly obliged. ‘Dans…’ something or other…can’t remember the name. I’ve noted it and will punt them when backed, although I don’t think the yard’s doing much at the moment.

    Irish Stamp tells us "you know you’re up the creek when you see "R. Mullen" next to your horse."

    R Mullen’s stats for this season…

    Current season – 6.81% success rate.

    In last fourteen days – 11.43%

    Not the best but far from the worst.

    Maybe you are talking through your pocket?

    Tom – Richard Mullen regularly gets the leg up on some very nice horses for John Gosden and Princess Haya, the majority of those around him in that part of the jockeys table are riding poorer quality animals for a wider range of stables.

    For the sort of horse he rides he does very very poorly in terms of results.

    In the past Reg Akehurst, Spittin’ Mick Easterby, even today he’s one to be weary of, don’t laugh but Nigel Tinkler has in the past been very good, Daviid Wintle, the late Alec Stewart was very very good say between 1986-1990 Braashee, Daarkom, Waajib all bring back memories, sweet memories.

    Was a Tinkler horse a live one when the awful Kim wasnt on board?

    The abiding memory of Wintle is from the Kenyon confronts programme when he tells Peter Kenyon of a ‘fiddling horse’ and Kenyon asks him ‘is that a horse that plays the fiddle?’
