dont worry about that stat mate.
Report Brooksielad March 9, 2013 11:31 AM GMT
imo he's probably the best jockey to show a horse a fence.

agree...he's definitely deteriorated over Chelt fences last 2 or 3 yrs for some reason...stats dont lie

Falling off Kauto Star a perfect example.

One of the greatest jockeys of all time, if he had the same amount of rides as AP had he'd have been champion jockey for the last 15 years in the uk . .with 300+ winners every season . .BUT 52 rides 52 losers including n Gold Cup winners doesn't bode well and for that reason...I'm out.

So based on this stat you are opposing all his chase rides at the festival blindly?

Worrying stat if you're a fan of Arvika Legionnaire, Boston Bob, Aupcharlie, Silviniaco Conti or Ulck Du Lin.
Report Graeme83 March 9, 2013 12:05 PM GMT
He won't be on Boston Bob or AupCharlies so that's not much of a concern.
Report SoYouThink March 9, 2013 12:18 PM GMT
Who'll be on them then?
Report Slabster March 9, 2013 12:22 PM GMT
Latest bit of news on Boston Bob said Townend most likely rides him, as Ruby rides Unioniste.

Andrew Lynch will ride Aupcharlie as he rides all the Potts' horses.
Report SoYouThink March 9, 2013 12:32 PM GMT
There is something not right about this statistic Analogue??

I did a search on the Racing Post website and he's

2 from 16 in Cheltenham chases in 2010-11
4 from 29 in Cheltenham chases in 2011-12
4 from 15 in Cheltenham chases in 2012-13

AD I presume you are just trying to stir the sh1t with this one. There are statistics and statistics.
Report Zach_Johnson March 9, 2013 2:56 PM GMT
For the record, that stat is absolute rubbish. He rode Al Ferof in the Paddy Power Gold Cup

Shouldn't really be posting nonsense like that unless you're certain
Report Mr Eboue March 9, 2013 3:59 PM GMT
Here's some other useful facts -

Tony Mccoy has not ridden a hurdles winner at Cheltenham since Unsinkable boxer won

Paul Nicholls has gone 14 years without winning a hurdle race at Cheltenham

It is widely accepted that Nicky Henderson won 7 races last year. This is not true. He has saddled 145 runners at Cheltenham without a winner.

It was festival i meant Soyouthink. Kauto Star was the last chase course winner he rode at the festival...Hope that clears it up Blush
Report GI MAC March 9, 2013 4:25 PM GMT
They must have slipped in another festival or two since 2009 that I wasn't aware of, it's impossible for Ruby to have rode 52 festival chases since he won on Kauto Star.

Isn't this the stat for Nicholls horses?

the clue is in the title THIS DECADE so that is 2 festivals, 10 chase races per festival = 20 races Crazy

The telling thing for me is that Ruby has NEVER won a chase on a Nicholls OR Mullins horse at either the Cheltenham Festival or Aintree Grand National Meeting whilst going right handed.

We can put this strange thread to bed when Silvinaico Conti wins the gold cup.
Report judorick March 14, 2013 7:54 PM GMT
I'm even more convinced now after seeing how the Nicholls horses have been running and how horses with previous festival form have been winning that SC will not be winning the Gold Cup

see you after Brookies

I thought of todays winners only Cue Card had run well at the festival before. The winner of the Jewson and WH Underperformed on their previous visits here although noted that they had actually ran here.

record in chases since 2008 below. More letters than finishes (only 4 completions from 18 rides in 2012-13......)

2 more winners over hurdles today took Ruby's record in same period over smaller obstacles to 19-56

Chase record now reads 0-36 since Kauto won in 2009. Champagne Fever today only his third placed effort over fences during that time
