    Villain – Gingertipster

    Poster of the Year – So many that deserve a mention on this, but there’s just no getting away from
    the fact that VENTURE TO COGNAC constantly writes superb race analysis and works
    overtime in here. If there was a subs bench I’d have Ginger, Steeplechasing, Nathan,
    Triptych and Steve.

    Thread of the year – It’s nearly achieving legendary status, so Joni’s “WHY FRANKEL WILL RULE THE WORLD”
    would be a worthy winner.

    Flat Horse – I’m trying my best not to “go with the crowd”, as has been mentioned on here, but
    there’s just no getting away from ENABLE (although I thought Harry Angel was a star

    Jumps Horse – UNOWHATIMEANHARRY. With six wins out of seven last year, and even on his one off day,
    he still managed to get 3rd in the Stayers Hurdle. He was my champion.

    Flat Jockey – FRANKIE DETTORI

    Jumps Jockey – JACK KENNEDY

    Flat Trainer – Aiden O’Brien

    Jumps Trainer – Nicky Henderson

    Hero – Freddie Tylicki, for showing true grit.

    Riding Performance – Jack Kennedy on A Toi Phil in the Handicap Chase at Leopardstown
    on January 22 2017. If ever a horse had no chance to win, practically right
    round, and then won, it was this one. If you missed this race, watch the rerun
    I still don’t know how he got up. Absolutely brilliant ride.

    Broadcaster – Ed Chamberlain. I was pretty much in the horrors when ITV got the racing coverage
    from Channel 4, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. He doesn’t seem to be everyone’s
    cup of tea, but I think he does a decent job as anchor.

    One to Watch in 2018 – GREAT FIELD. He’s not been out yet this season, but the way he won the Ryanair
    Novice Chase at Punchestown in April, despite his saddle slipping 2 out, makes
    him look like he might just be a bit special

    Racecourse – Cheltenham, it’s not original, but I love the place.

    Journalist – Chris Cook

    Villain – The evil scum that set the stable of Hettie and Impossible Dream alight.

    Owner – The late Ann and Alan Potts. It’s a bit of a landslide in here, but I’m
    not going to pick another when I think they should be well remembered and
    worthy winners.

    Commentator – Simon Holt

    Poster of the Year
    Venture to Cognac, for the big race previews, his tipping and research threads like Nothing Gained + The Midnight Club are excellent, for the big winners + that Cheltenham Festival he had was incredibly successful, I have never seen one like it.

    Thread of the year
    I really like Gingertipsters threads + as much as the methodology and percentages confuse me, he gets results. I will put Gingers winners. Nathan I am struggling to copy the link

    Poster of the Year

    Thread of the year, I would agree with previous comments. I think that despite a good year for The Racing Forum, I can’t think of a thread at all that would deserve a vote. I’m sure there were some, but I must have missed them.

    Flat Horse Cracksman. I am sure Enable will win this and deservedly so, but I just found the performances of Cracksman to be breathtaking.

    One to Watch in 2018

    Racecourse Sandown. I had some incredibly enjoyable days, and nights there this year, and I just feel it goes from strength to strength.

    Horse : Enable – no contest .
    Jockey : Ryan Moore – a class above the rest .
    Trainer : Aiden O’Brien – ditto
    Broadcaster : Mick Fitzgerald .
    Poster of the year : Hmmm , its getting a bit like tv’s soap opera awards where it is becoming obvious that a select few construct their posts with the Xmas awards uppermost in their minds . For that reason , I’ve jettisoned the lot of them :yes:
    However , one poster seems to have fended off the slings and arrows with a mixture of stoicism and rancour , and many of his opinions on certain subjects I find myself agreeing with .
    So,take a bow , Steve Caution . You’ve got my vote .

    That said , I must put in a special word for my favourite poster , who like myself , doesn’t post as often as he should.

    I can easily spot a fellow intellectual 5 furlongs away. This man is not only erudite and knowledgeable but but has a command of the English language and English grammar that is second to none on these pages – and he has A very dry sense of humour , which I love . My honorary Xmas present of 2017 goes to … drum roll … Drone . :good:
