    Shocking scenes reported on Betfair, the bridge jumpers are out in their hundreds.

    I stand by my pre-Christmas evaluation that Southwell needs to go.  Mind you, anyone that would lay a 1.4 shot at 1000, on the a/w, needs a lobotomy.

    I have no sympathy for the leeches who lay at 1000

    Hi RD

    I stand by my pre-Christmas evaluation that Southwell needs to go.

    Why?  I’m fascinated. Fairly solid crowd today as there has been all Christmas.

    I dunno what was more surprising – the laying at 1000 or Lee James actually saddling a winner! It’s five years since his last, most of his energies generally channelled towards acting as a jockey’s agent.

    There’s been a whole sack of Vauxhall Conference league trainers getting off the long-term cold list recently – Clarissa Caroe, Willie Young, Louise Davis, Jo Fierro, Ann Woodrow and Tim Butt to name but a few. There’s at least two of us on this forum who hope this augurs well for Ted Caine…

    I’m just gutted that backing Temoin at 5.0 or so in running (yes, I know he got far bigger!!!) didn’t quite pay off…..

    Oh Jeremy, I wonder who else could possibly want Ted to be King Caine?? (I picked one of Paul Nicholls in the hope it rubs off)

    Love it when the outsiders triumph even on the flat!

    I also hope Peter Wegmanns luck changes soon, you never know, the cold trainers are warming to their task!

    Peter Wegmann is very close to the top of my worst ever trainers list.

    No reason at all for Southwell to go. If you can be arsed to sort out the non-stayers and those that won’t go on the surface from the rest, there’s no reason to to be able to make money.

    On the subject of trainers I don’t particularly rate,considering the amount of money that has been spent on the horses Karen Waldron’s results are very disappointing.

    Don’t think she’s as bad as she was a couple of years ago but agree she is pretty dire Grey Desire.

    Quite right DJ. The trouble is that some people want it all on a plate for them. Southwell is just about the easiest track in the land to make money at, but you do have to do some homework.

    <br>Sad how much Chef Tartare, Mondial Jack and Wyle Post, who all cost plenty, have declined under her tutelage. Conversely, though, she kept finding opportunities for Young Lorcan and Rash Moment, who I’m sure cost buttons comparatively… although how much of that was astute placing and how much due to excellent jockeyship by Sam Jones is a matter of conjecture.

    The Abbots Habit who went off at 1.40 (2/5) yesterday was also matched @ 1,000 /1 in running.<br>It got up in the very last stride.
