It’s that time of year again Bob, where does time go? How many years have you ran this competition now? Incredible comp that has grown over the years in both competitors and prize money and I know Gary GDC will be playing alongside myself. I will message you in ample time. Thanks again for making the effort, it’s much appreciated.Its also that time of year where I suggest a day out at Wetherby and we never make it… Oneday pal..
Well done Euroalien,that was some score pal and to win this most prestigious prize two years running proves what a fantastic judge you are. Bobby VTC has played a blinder as per usual and thanks to him we all got an extra thrill from the sport of Kings watching our team of 10 perform. Thanks also for everyone who contributed to the prize fund which of course is what we all want to win and everyone who played. I have already got my 10 for next season lead by ‘Ferny Hollow’.. My 50/1 Champion hurdle bet.. 😎
I demand a re-count Bob.. 😲😲😲.. You are historically bottom of this leader board for 99% of competition.. Thinking that Lostintranslation would win yesterday I was going to offer a £50 bonus to whoever was leading this morning… Thinking it would bound to be me.. 😂😂😂😂.. Am bloody glad I didn’t now.. 🤬🤬🤬🤬
Well done pal.. Said in my Donald trump true sporting loser tone.. Its gonna be an exciting one this.
Oh and lets all support the virtual Grand National today.. Its for the real heroes at the NHS.. The aptly mamed ‘The Storyteller’ at 40/1 ew is my selection.. Shame the bloody computer that deciphers all info wont recognise that but hey ho..
Well done Euro.. I had 4 of the top 6 scoring horses and you still beat me with that incredible serlection.. Bloody Honeysuckle.. What was your mindset in selecting her??.. First and foremost I have to thank Bobby VTC for creating the best comp yet.. And that was without Aintree and Punchestown.. Lets hope we’re all here to do it again next season.. There’s a few of us go back a long way on here so stay safe as best you can. Well done everyone involved in this comp it gets bigger and better every year and long may it last.. So long as VTC wins contributor of the year every year as some sort of recognition for his efforts people will realise the work he does. Thanks for messages guys too. It wouldn’t be me to be modest but I thought last year at Epsom I had found my new Dancing Brave in Pinatubo.. I took all the 16s for the 2000gns I could get and 25s for the Derby and 66s for the double.. TAPK has to put things in perspective though and accept that racing is merely a luxury.. Surviving is a different ball game.. Stay safe and oneday we will return to normality and I will continue to reign supreme as the legendary King of Ante-Post betting…
Only one persons going to get double points on winner though greenasgrass.. Delta Work..
9yrs ago now Bob.. We discussed the Kim muir a couple of months prior to race day and agreed to get on at 16/1..I remember backing him at all prices down to 5/1..He went of 100/30 fav on the day and did a Slip Anchor.. Old Faasel had gone to Pipes yard too and he was available at 66/1 on the morning of the race. Backed into 20s..Funnily enough I was thinking the other day that I could write a book on my Ante-post coups of the past 40 yrs. Nobody in the history of the world has landed so many as me.. It cant be just luck pal..
Those were the days Nath.. I remember feeling like one a those trans atlantic gender fluid sorts at one of Harvey Weinsteins parties when I first joined.. As for daring to call myself TAPK.. The wrath and constant barracking I endured.. Nowadays it would cause ptsd but alas I dared suggest that Art Conneisseur would win the Golden jubilee at 40/1 as an introductory post and well.. The King was born..Having Nathan..”I stare in the face of adversity” Hughes as my wingman encouraged me more..
This comp wont really get going till Cheltenham arrives Neil.. You have an incredible team pal.. I will need both subs to keep me in contention but anyone can win it yet.. Always great fun and thanks to Bobby VTC for keeping so smoothly run. Good luck all. TAPK of old would be the 4/5 fav only because of his legendary status.
TAPK reigned supreme on here for over 5 yrs..In several guises..I could argue with myself at times but there was always someone lacking in humour that bit my carrot..I was King once but only at fishing, I could cast my rod and rarely was left with a worm.The King of foresight was always in touch with his feminine side and in this trans lucid world of gender realignement I was ‘Oh so sharp’ the most well proportioned filly I ever did see..She allowed my devilment to play on the vulnerable.What I had in confidence though I lacked in the articulate skills of Gambles..Nobody uses the English language to paint Picasso like you do Sir..I tip my crown to you.
‘Oh so sharp’ won a fillies maiden at Nottingham back in 1984..She was razor sharp and could handle the colts..I of course backed her at 16/1 for the 1985 1000 gns..What a gamble that was too.
Nath..I think it was you who took the pic pal..Am sure Ginge was there lurking like one a those guys who sits at side of road counting cars passing..

Blow by Blow…To win any race 10/1 with Skybet…He could be a JLT,,RSA,,,or 4m horse.I dont mind which so long as he turns up.
I had already got my 40/1 for last years Grand National winner at this point,thanks to Joe higlighting ‘One for Arthur’.This year I have waited for the weights to be published before I jump in and the horse that jumps off the page is Bellshill..42’s on machine has been taken.First and foremost he’s a multiple Grade 1 winner getting in on 10-7..He ran 3rd to the mighty ‘Might Bite’ at Cheltenham,his Trainer had him entered in the 4miler too which suggests he could stay.’Bellshill’ is generally a spring heeled jumper and looks like a horse who could athletically jump Aintree,the course itself suits.He is 7lb better off with Mouse Morris’s plot horse ‘Alpha des Obeaux’ for beating him in RSA,that form reads well.He’s only an 8yo,lightly raced too and he’s won 50% of his 16 runs.I see he could reappear this weekend and his only entry at Cheltenham is the Ryanair.I believe Graham Wylie will let him take his chance at Liverpool as he did have the potential to be carrying 11-7 in this..off his mark of 150 and the fact he’s beaten the very useful ‘Coney Island’ in a Grade 1 3m race suggests off this fly weight his chances of staying look promising in what we know is a bloody nightmare of a race.TAPK has a surprisingly good record in the Grand National and I dont even back all the runners like my old pal Ginge does..
