    Massive praise from Aidan on Churchill at the weekend…. :rose:

    On Heavens Gate winning a maiden

    “She’s a powerful filly. Her dam is 22 and hadn’t bred a good one until now. Churchill is obviously a decent stallion.”

    She maybe 22 Aidan but has only produce 7 foals

    Shaping into a good looking race.
    Glad I took the early price.. 5/2 top price now on Rosallion.
    Henry Longfellow like most of Aidan’s should improve for his first outing
    Notable Speech is a deserved fav after his performance in the guineas but short enough to take on imo

    Hi BigG, I’m not someone that cashes out a lot other than when I play Mr Green up on the exchanges, where I back and then lay, so not really a cash out as such… :wacko: luckily I have never encountered what you experience yesterday

    These are betfair rules

    “Soccer markets – not suspending on the occurrence of a Material Event and rules relating to VAR
    Not suspending on the occurrence of a Material Event and cancellations of Material Events due to VAR
    If Betfair does not suspend a market on time for the occurrence of a Material Event, Betfair reserves the right to void bets matched after the Material Event has occurred. Voiding of these bets may take place during the event or retrospectively once a game is completed.
    Where a Material Event is cancelled due to a determination made via a video assistant referee(VAR), Betfair will void bets as follows for such Material Event and the cancellation of it:
    Goals
    If a goal is scored and subsequently cancelled in a game using VAR technology, we will void all bets between the goal being scored and the goal being cancelled by VAR.
    If a goal is scored and then confirmed after a VAR review, no voiding will take place.
    For the avoidance of doubt on the above, Betfair deem every goal to be reviewed by VAR.”

    The problem with a site like BET365 is they should suspend the market when a goal is scored and not reopen it until kick off has been made, because until then VAR could come into play. If play started and then stopped for VAR then that would open a whole can of worms as its not in the rules.

    I’m guessing bet365 have similar rules to that of betfair
    I did look but couldn’t find it
    if its the same they have you on T@C’s
    its very messy and very bad on their part, I wouldn’t be happy if I were you and like you say if Rangers went onto win would they have giving you the cash out or full winnings.

    The time was slow.
    Haatem and Spencer controlled the race sat in 3rd and took it up crusing. The proximity of River Tiber who ran a cracker by the way suggests it turned into a bit of a sprint. Rosallion was in the worst position of the 3 finishers so I think he can be upgraded
    Wether he truly stays a sapping mile against top opposition is still open imo
    But I think today would give the team confidence and the horse some more experience going into Royal Ascot

    I’m not convinced River Tiber will stay a mile and its his seasonal reappearance, needs to prove he’s trained on too as looked a forward two year old last year.

    7/5 Haatem to win match bet with River Tiber £5.00

    -£45.00

    Have to take on Aidan’s crew on their seasonal reappearences. Unquestionable is the bigger worry of the two for me but Aidan says he’s behind. River Tiber has a lot of ability but I’d rather see him do it at the distance first

    3/1 Haatem – Irish 2000 Guineas without Rosallion £5.25

    -£40.00

    BigG, I certainly think Haatem is the best of the rest
    I’ll be looking for match bets with against the two fancy O’Brien horses and the without Rosallion market tomorrow
    Hannon said he’ll probably split his two up after this race and talked about a step up in trip for Haatem so it might turn out tactically that one makes the running

    Apricot Ice returned £30.00

    Forgot to say she was backed into favouritism last time out so they obviously fancied her whereas today was a late drifted. Broke smartly, grabbed the rail and never really looked like getting beat.. :good:

    -£46.00

    Apricot Ice is down in trip but I think that won’t inconvenience her at the Curragh with the stiff finish.. With a furlong to go last time out against Igor Stravinsky she looked well in the race and showed plenty of speed. Doesn’t look as if anything in this race will be as good as Igor so a repeat of that run should she her finish in front

    2/1 Apricot Ice – 5.15 Curragh Fillies Maiden £10.00

    -£76.00
