    Hello Everyone

    A tentative post as a newby.

    I have tried nearly all known (to myself) booksellers and book searchers but am unable to locate the below titles. It’s a long shot I would presume, but does anyone on here have any of the titles below they may consider selling.

    I am a bit of a hoarder and would like to add to my ever increasing collection albeit that these particular titles are I am lead to believe out of print and of particular value both for content and price (stated to appease the doubters).

    Author Marvex
    Title A regular income from horse racing
    Author Paul Major
    Title Horse Sense
    Author Steve Ahearn
    Title Secrets of Successful Betting

    Many Thanks and Kind Regards

    The Horse sense by Paul Major you will find hard to get, the last time I saw one of those was off Paul major himself and he wanted over 100 pounds for it, they seem to be very rare and expensive although a very good read by all accounts

    Isn’t Horse Sense the UK adaptation of Lawrence Voegele’s Professional Method of Winner Selection?
    Maybe if Paul Major’s is too hard to get Voegele’s might do? :D
    There’s plenty of those out there.

    Dear Kingston

    Many thanks for your input. I have located and purchased said item and look forward to delivery.

    Not in the sense you maybe thinking or implying.

    The family I admire and are decent folk. Before anyone goes on about lighters, I might add that I know of no one who is or near to perfect except the chap (who was as close as you can get) who was nailed to a cross.

    She is a ruddy good jockey and has time for people and also a hoot.

    Best Wishes

    In so far as most of us on here have never committed any public order offences, demanded tables for 13 without prior booking, or cultivated really nasty facial hair and mullets, I’d humbly suggest most TRFfers are probably even closer to perfect than the above. :wink:

    Nina is considerably better than not bad, though. Agreed.

    re Nina – met her at MacDonalds in Naas the other year [spent ages saying to my partner y’know, that girl at the next table looks just like Nina Carberry] and when I eventually plucked up the courage to speak to her she was really sweet and shy – I think she’s a breath of fresh air. Remember years ago Paul Carberry saying that she was going to be the best of the lot. Just imagine if she won the Grand National! mo [who grew up dreaming of being the first girl to win the National, only to find that if I got on one side of a horse I fell straight off the other side, just like the Knight in Alice in Wonderland…..

    Strawbear, I’m not aware of one, but Raymond Smith’s "High Rollers of the Turf" has a chapter (27 pages) devoted to the man alongside many others.
