    Mark , sorry to say this , but any remaining credibility you may have had, has washed away now , your unerring stance behind Roy et all , has changed my perception of you entirely

    Roy will be gone within 6 months , this(padded cushion whip issue) will be fixed , but you will still be marooned in a ship outside the main body of opinion

    Sad really

    Must be doubley sad then Ricky. :lol:

    I don’t like Paul Roy, but I’ll defend anyone from anyone if I believe they’re being unfairly criticised.

    If you take a look at the beggining of this thread I even defended Kingfisher and spoke up for Pinza in another.

    Will continue to judge people on what they say about each and every subject individually. Not on reputation. If you don’t like it Ricky, that’s tough.

    All the best.

    I’m not trying to "get one over on you" Fisher. Just don’t like people blaming others for their own inadequacies. I’m pointing out that your 3 weeks without a bet does not "speak volumes" about the new rules. It is unfair to blame the BHA and Paul Roy for your lack of confidence in betting.

    Ginge,you are carrying on like a fiery Red head,my own inadequacies are there for all to see on ‘Gone Fishing’,my recent form on there has no bearing with these Whip rules as i have been losing consistently for several months,i plan to turn that round but i’m just letting things settle down whilst we get used to whats happening on the race track.I do the majority of my betting in running,it maybe backing,it may be laying but as things stand i’m just not convinced the formbook is the reliable yardstick i have always depended on,we’ll see! :)

    i’m just letting things settle down whilst we get used to whats happening on the race track.

    I’ve said my piece on the whip debate and like anyone who loves the sport we just have to play the hand we’re dealt with,we all know who the ‘joker’ in the pack is and thankfully he’s not a player that turns up very often.Like any card game the pack will get re-shuffled and over time the Joker ‘Gets lost’!…Having just read about the ’30 recommendations designed to continue enhancing the safety and welfare of The Grand National’I can only conclude that the BHA’s Tim Morris is another ‘Card’ for failing to inform the media and the public that water and oxygen was going to be on hand at the end of last seasons race! Having watched countless Grand Nationals over the years i can categorically say that all the drama that unfolded at the end of last years race was the cause for the Publics concern,not the death of 2 horses,it was like a scene from ‘Casualty’ and over reactions from certain TV presenters did not help.I remember thinking to myself, this does not look good,had we been told prior to the race what would unfold by said TV presenters this whole unsavoury business would not have escalated to the proportions it has imo…Communication lets us down.Again!

    If ever a race sums up why we the REAL racing fans think the BHA
    are a complete bunch of No-hopers! Its this! A REAL pleasure to see a horse and jockey outbattling his opponents!
    Had Davy dropped his hands after the 8th strike of the whip

    Quito de la roque

    would not have won,simple as that!

    What on earth do you think gives you the right to claim (effectively) that somehow that others who do not blindly agree with you are not REAL racing fans.
    Get a grip mate, or your pompousity will start to get the better of you.

    That is why the real solution is to disqualify the horse as well as to punish the jockey.

    Wrong again Coggy! The REAL solution has nothing to do with disqualifying the horse! You keep coming out with rubbish like that and i’ll keep keeping it REAL! :wink:

    Poor Coggy , you obviously havent had your nonsense tablets today , never mind we are all well used to it (lie down for a while )

    ps Richard Hills 9 day ban , for 9 strikes of which 3 were corrective

    The Stewards agreed with him that it was harsh , but rules are rules , they no longer have discretion , so another fine mess for the Bha and their silly rule

    So we can look forward to horses crashing through rails and wings of fences , as Jockeys cannot take any corrective action if they have used up their 7/8 smacks with the cushion stick

    Could you make it up

    Coggy probably hasn’t had any nonsense tablets because it appears you have swallowed the lot.

    You beat me to it Stilvi.
    Ricky is another self appointed expert whose total inability to recognise that others may have a valid viewpoint that may not coincide with his own shows a somewhat blinkered mentality.
    Still he retains the ability to make sarcastic comments. I bet it keeps him warm at night. Lol.

    I’ve pretty much stayed out of this debate but one thing I do know is this: if a jockey gets banned for using corrective strokes that could prevent a horse going through a rail or the wings of a fence, that is wrong. These rules are designed to protect the horse, not put it in danger.
