Thanks once again for your invaluable input to a thread Ian! Given your frugal approach to life, have you ever considered just blowing your own brains out? It would certainly help save a few quid in the long run! Which seems to be your overall aim in life.
Meanwhile, in an alternate universe. Looking on jet2. A 5 night full board stay in a perfectly reasonable hotel with a sea view and lovely weather can be had for around £500 including flights from east mids.
Few beers, not having to work for a few days and getting some sun on my back sure sounds like being preferable to being stretched out on a sofa watching it piss down with rain and struggling to see what the hell is going off on a muted iPhone. But what do I know!
If I thought he was being seriously aimed at this and there was a guarantee of nothing worse than good to soft (unlikely now) then Kinondo kwetu would be a strong selection for me.
I’ll have a tickle at him for now and if he’s there at 48 hour decs with good in the description I’ll be getting seriously involved.
Going to be very very tight, and that’s being generous, for 2 I like. Highland Hunter and Kinondo Kwetu.
Mike I admire your confidence and GDC is going to take an awful lot of beating based on recent form.
If the fences were a sterner test I’d definitely be a layer of him. For all that his jumping has improved a ton this season.
But odds on is something I very rarely get involved with. There’s usually something to take it on with. And in this version of the GC there are a number of other options!
It’s as wide open a race as I can remember for sometime! If any of the first 8 or so in the betting won I wouldn’t be in the least surprised.
That said, BMG is undoubtedly being overlooked. And if he gets his ground Hewick is a 3/1 shot 2nd fav in my opinion.
Definitely a combination of poor and good rides!
If I ever win the euro millions the first thing I’d spend my money on is paying Cobden whatever it takes to make him my retained rider.
I’ve always considered Pic d’orhy a very solid and reliable grade 2 horse. I think he’s a smashing horse for that grade. But if Nicholls is right and he’s improving he’s just given shiskin a massive compliment and he’s very much a live runner in the gold cup!
Impossible to have a bet at this stage.
Because if Go Dante was felt a likely runner surely he wouldn’t be 14’s given his form this year!
Have decided that 25’s is too big for remastered.
I’d say he’s been running in some better races than this but that’s stretching it. He’s set off. That’s about as much as can be said about his performances of late.
Up against some old rogues going a slower pace in this though ought to give him a better chance of at least getting round.
There’s a company at the minute doing the rounds of the universities that basically hoover up hundreds of students, shuttle them over to racecourse X, usher them into the Best mate stand/family enclosure or other part of the track which is miles away from the general race goer and allows them to run amok for 6 hours whilst getting absolutely rat arsed.
Believe me, plenty of race courses have been very welcoming of this idea.
And it’s one that I actually don’t mind. I despise millennials so if they’re penned in somewhere far from me and they’re out of sight/earshot for the most part even better.
If there was an option to upgrade my ticket to an option which allows me to throw petrol bombs into their enclosure I’d also consider that a fantastic opportunity for race goer interaction and customer journey experience.
I would have deffo backed every winner on the card if I’d known that about the ground! And probably most of the card at Naas and even some of the winners at Exeter tomorrow as well!
I’ll still be playing Snipe.
A massive shift in the price of Il est Francais for this since last night on oddschecker.
16’s into 5/2!? What’s going on?
Are they going to run him after all?
Most of the field have got a confirmed liking for soft/heavy Ian. Maybe not to the extent of the garlic munching gelding but he’s not got anything like the form they have.
And those others are more than double his price!
There is absolutely zero chance that anyone backing ODM has even the faintest idea of what the form is worth.
If this lad is coming over from France and running for anyone bar Mullins he’s a 16/1 shot. You’ve had your pants pulled down and can stand in the corner with your dunces hat on if you’re happy to take these stupid prices about it.
Has beaten a list of complete unknowns, in between being pulled up, must have heavy ground and taking a massive step up in class. There’s one born every minute!
Each way doubles on Spirit D’ Aunou and Brentford hope with Snipe in the GN trial next weekend.
