That's the clean-sheet hat-trick. Nicely done by both of us, doncha think? Happy The bottom line even edges over the £20 mark. Let's hope we don't besmirch that.

I'll take the honours today, having sussed that Swaledale Lad  would dilly dale on the way home at 4.51. Cool  Actually looked like a bit of a last-minute gamble on that one - can't think why. Confused  Anyway, well done us and may we enjoy similar luck on the morrow! Excited

Well done reg;sort of fitting you should win the 99th race.You're obviously in form having been runner up a couple of races ago.Excellent from custer who went down with all guns blazing;that second star ain't far away.
Report Reged October 26, 2016 5:36 PM BST

I was tempted to comment last night that maybe a poster who shall remain nameless (but is rather flowery, specially for a bloke! Laugh) had put the kiss of death on us by suggesting we might make 20+. And so it transpired as, sadly, general custer was outwitted by a nag that, on paper, looked a good choice, so much so that, as I say, if he hadn't picked it first I would have gone for it. C'est la vie in the laying world. Cry

Anyway very hard luck general on crashing at the 16th after putting in such a superb performance. We didn't quite manage to keep the bottom line over £20 but it's still pretty respectable. And it's not often we get to the 16th fence, let alone number 20. But at least the general leaves with a shiny silver medal and a very healthy profit of nearly £11. Grin  And again, well done to posy on the bronze after another sterling performance. Happy

And thanks to everyone who took part in the 99th race. Goodness, it's 100 next! Shocked
