    Good luck with Glounthaune Kris he certainly won his last race well and deserves to go into the mix. Down to Group 3 level but a real confidence booster. :good:

    Noticed he stumbled at the start of the Dewhurst so who knows how much closer he could have got to Native Trail.

    40/1 EW could look very good if he winters well. :rose: Jac

    Good luck with your Breeders Cup swap Tonge :good: and thanks Andre, Silent Assassins and John (good luck with those 10 To Follow choices :wacko: )

    I also have an extra horse to choose so going to be extremely careful who I put in hopefully a winner at the Breeders Cup. Not long to go now..

    Will update as soon as Nathan, Min and Graham pop by..think that’s it..Jac :bye:

    Thanks again Tonge :heart: you are a good comrade on here and pleased to say we enjoy our shared love of the Godolphin horses and taking part in the competitions in which they run and also all the other competitive comps within TRF which was one of the reasons I joined TRF many years ago.

    I must admit this has made me feel pretty miserable to have been singled out by a Forum Troll for no other reason than I really love and get enthusiastic about racing and racehorses whoever they are owned by.

    We’ve all had a pretty tough 2 years and this Forum and those who participate have helped me through a particularly difficult time that I haven’t talked about to many. My Meydan Thursday’s Thread isn’t all about Meydan and Godolphin horses it was started about 3years back now because some of us who enjoy flat racing were looking for something a little more exciting than All Weather to take us through a cold winter.
    Those who came to play on Daily, Lays and Plays to find winners at Meydan every Thursday never dreamed that Covid would strike and knock us all sideways and they stayed not just for Meydan but for the whole year where we all helped each other through that awful time and friendships were forged and remain today. I am very proud of that Thread for those reasons.

    If you haven’t looked further than the name of my Thread you missed a great deal Ginge, as I said I happen to be very proud of it and pleased I have your permission to keep it.

    I know you were trying to back up what Turkoman said and I am fine with criticism if it’s well balanced and thought out and your initial comments were positive but to even partially condone the unreasonable battering given to a fellow poster by someone like that actually allies you with him in upsetting someone unnecessarily.

    I hope you will bear that in mind Ginger as someone who has been posting on here much longer than I have and if you don’t want to back Godolphin horses then that’s fine it is your choice. However, purely from a punters point of view I don’t see much value in that.

    I hope we can draw a line here Ginge and as I know you always like the final word I hope it’s sorry but if not perhaps you could just let this Thread move on.

    Thanks Steve.. :good:

    Will update the Leaderboard in next couple of days..got a bit behind this week with all the compys ending at once.

    Creative Force scored a magnificent 500 points in the Sprint but Adayer and Master Of The Seas failed to score..it has been a long Season so they are probably off for a much deserved rest now.

    Got a message that Althiqa has been taken out of training so anyone with her in their Stable will have the opportunity to add an extra horse..good luck..

    My score..
    Points … 11200
    Position .. 242nd

    :bye: Jac

    Well put and thank you Graham and Sam.
    It’s beyond me why someone would want to say such nasty things obviously been trolling my posts and our Meydan Thread for a bit.
    As you said Turkoman gave no input regarding his opinion of who might win the Guineas next year, it’s so easy to criticise
    and to try to break someone’s spirit but I promise you that is not going to happen here.

    TRF is a great melting pot and we all differ in our opinions but how we respond to others tells us so much about that person and negativity probably helps this person by posting mean and insinuating things that are untrue.

    Your support only shows me what a great bunch of people come here to share opinions and all of you are expert and knowledgeable with a shared love of the horses.. after tough times for all of us we have a lot to look forward to next flat season with Native Trail leading the market we can but hope he comes through to finish the job..Jac

    Thank you Tonge your kind words are very much appreciated.
    I know you love following the Godolphin horses as much as I do, so beautifully bred and this has been by far Charlie Appleby’s best year winning top trainer on Saturday. :rose:

    I thought about reporting the offending post but decided to leave it in place for others to see how it’s best not to feed the anger that can be thrown at you out of the blue for being enthusiastic about certain horses and it certainly won’t stop me and others like yourself, following the Godolphin horses or any horses and posting pictures.

    Also hoping Native Trail winters well and matures into a proper 3yo both physically and mentally, that great turn of foot he has is what I love most about him and looking forward to seeing both himself and Coroebus next season and it could be as exciting as Adayar and Hurricane Lane all over again.

    You are right Tonge about Coolmore or Gosden or even Hannon having some decent unraced 2yo sitting at home and although the flat season seems to be virtually over, if you get time, take a look at Newmarket’s card on Wednesday where sometimes something emerges from the Shadows.
    It’s a rare day that I enjoy just going down to look rather than bet.

    Such a long time to wait now just hope they all keep sound for next season.

    Jac :rose:

    Very well done Mike :yahoo: That was some team you got together there and what a great score you must be very pleased. Will certainly have to try harder next year to catch you.
    Perhaps I’ll put in a crack team of Godolphin horses next year as a certain Poster on the 2000 Guineas Thread seems to think I am a covert Agent for Sheikh Mo ..lol ;-)
    Seriously though that was some great tipping and well done also to Threenaps who has won the Scudamore book Three Of A Kind or if NH racing is not your thing Three Naps I’ll send you a Tenner so you can buy a book of your choice..just PM me on TRF messaging.
    Well done also to Plum Draw Racing in 3rd position :good:

    Finally a huge thank you to Graham for all his lengthy and informative updates every week and for putting up a generous 1st Prize 🏆.
    I always lived in hope that my Dark Angels would fly Graham but this year they decided to rest their wings and most of my choices petered out one by one but really enjoyed taking part in the competition..big thank you. :heart: Jac

    Well done again with your winning Nap.

    Thanks Euro(Andre), green, Raymo and Graham got lucky this week unlike most of my photo finishes.

    Green…
    Soul Train and Creative Force’s paths would never have crossed but this winter he and his chums will be reaping some of the benefits of his success. :heart:

    Graham I found your address on my PM’s so will get that crispy tenner over to you but still can’t find Bobby’s..I’ll keep trying later and let you know..Jac :good:

    Not sure if this short video will work Andre but you asked for a pupdate and this clearly shows Wilson is a far cry from that little puppy sitting in a crystal vase..
    He is the kindest most gentle boy and we all adore him.. :heart:

    Oh great it did work. :good:

    Yes I just saw it too Graham. I did know about Nathan’s sad loss and it must leave a huge void and only time can help numb the pain as you sadly know.

    Nathan no need to worry about the Champs Day comp or any other come to that main thing is to concentrate on your own health and family who always come first.
    Take care and take your time, all thoughts with you and Alex. Jac :rose:
