    Apparently Mullins said in an interview with the Racing Post today: “I’ll teach that Stilvi on ‘The Racing Forum’ for saying it’s ‘bonkers’ to go for the Champion Hurdle. I’m after taking the Dawn Run route with this lad now.”

    10/1 with the books in places.

    “or have any sort of life beyond racing.”

    Is there life beyond racing?

    No one ever told me this!

    What else is there, then?

    And more importantly, can you bet on it and are there edges to be had?

    You’ve got to hand it to Cash-Out Boy, he’s more consistent than any horse in training – you can set your watch (or smart phone in the modern era) by him.

    Yes, pure Comedy Gold – who needs a subscription to “Dave” when you’ve got this?

    “We might now go for the English Lincoln….”

    “English??!!”

    It’s THE LINCOLN!

    Is there even a place called Lincoln in Ireland?

    Every race replay is available on video, there is nothing to stop anyone from validating or disproving every single comment in running by looking for themselves.

    There is no edge in being lazy and simply trusting the validity of comments that everyone has access to.

    Well-known form-book expert and pro punter Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac had the right idea: “You can go your own way….”

    Leave my new favourite trainer alone!

    Have any of you seen the price of (who ate all the) pies, lately?

    The lad’s got to eat!

    I wasn’t aware there was a Lincolnshire in Ireland – you live and learn.

    The Arkle, the Champion Hurdle, the NH Chase (Bobby will have to back Ballyburn for this), the Broadway, the Champion Chase, the Turners, the Ryanair, the Stayers’ Hurdle, the Cheltenham Gold Cup – when they change the rules enabling Ballyburn to win all nine of these races at the 2025 Cheltenham Festival, all contributors to this thread will be able to take a chill pill and it will be “pay! pay!” all the way and across the board in those hallowed ante-post halls and corridors in Big Race Discussion.

    Me?

    I just look forward to wherever the horse is declared at the 48-hour stage to run next.

    I am not scoffing, Wilts, it’s simply that this government has been in power 14 years, it clearly hasn’t been a net success yet it’s remaining hardcore support has this bizarre idea it has a divine right to rule.

    This is a very moderate Labour Party by any historical measure yet many on the right would never want even a Starmer Labour to serve so much as one term in office.

    It’s the same on the other side – no matter how much a Labour government messes up, it’s “anything but the Tories.”

    Neither side has a right to rule in perpetuity, it wouldn’t be good for democracy if they did.

    It’s time for a change – and that’s what I’m now certain we are going to get.

    In five to ten years’ time it may be time for a change again – that’s the political pendulum for you.

    I wonder how far right of centre Labour would need to be before Sarah Vine of the MOS considered Labour the natural choice for all those reasonable moderate people like her who write for and read that fine centrist publication?

    I’m mildly surprised she was even aware there was a race meeting at Cheltenham last week, tbh – the lady isn’t exactly my go-to source for informed racing comment.

    They don’t call him “Neil TWO Visits To The Seaside” for nothing.

    I’m disappointed too – how can anyone genuinely enjoy the Cheltenham Festival without first knowing what all the trainers’s favourite puddings are?
