Initial thoughts:

Suspect 7/2 Ballymac Matt can follow Farloe Blitz round again but this time, nail him on the pay-stick

7/4 Laughil Duke runs the risk of being clobbered but if securing a clear enough passage, his fine middle prowess should take him into the reckoning third bend and could be right in contention business end

Kilmore Drifter is a nippy type and hopeful of a decent run in competitive sprint

Samiya came from behind to lead up in Ballydoyle Honey a round of the Derby and has an obvious chance to me

Vulturi just does enough, hard to contain but short so looking to double with TV Trophy winner Ballymac Bonnie, hoping for about 3/1 combined

Although due a ping, the projection says you may not get a great deal of mileage out of Save The Don, so looking at a likely big price Blue Cafu to make up for disappointments

Fair Taxes isnt really blessed with tremendous early but fancied to assert from about the third bend at the main expense of speedy Drumsna Castle

Smart performer Rural Hawaii looks sure to put his rivals to the sword and can do the job, if not too excessively wide off the final bend. You've got to rub your eyes to believe Minor Bounds latest clocking. Out to prove it wasnt a flash in the pan

Ballyhooly Henry shapes as if 600yds right up his street and could send punters home with a bang! Excited

No prices yet, but they're your winners anyway! Laugh

Didnt know he was injured. Just heard he was tired before semis? Was closing down Farloe Blitz at the finish anyway and seemed fine to the pick-up?

Closing on Blitz at the line - what price would you have made him at the 3rd bend when up Blitz's hole ? This is a dog that's come from behind over 600y and done 32:13 for the 600y trip

As much as i like Highview Apollo there is no way in the world he should have been running down Ballymac Matt the round before, you would expect Matt to beat Apollo following him around sure.

The dog is tired? From what? Surely running 3 week straight can't have knackered him that much as the alarm bells have been ringing from round 4 onwards. I can't have the tired argument unless he is one proper soft fckr

He has hardly had a hard schedule, he had 1 race in May before going to Wimbledon, then he had 3 races in June (in the 600), then one race around Tralee in July and then nothing until the middle of August and the start of the Derby.

If this was not the Derby final the dog would be odds on, he is the best drawn and a certain leader unless making a total balls of it, Matt has a tough draw with Cable Bay not wanting to be that far in and Peregrine Falcon inside him and Gaytime Hawk will need to smash to clear the 3 and 4
Report woodmanchester September 17, 2015 3:30 PM BST
Gaytime Hawk and Cable Bay picked up Farloe Blitz in an earlier round and chances again, even Matt if one gets a run behind Blitz, imo. The choice is a simple one, Blitz or the field. Know which way I'd jump Confused
Report p_r_e_m_i_e_r__f_a_n_t_a_s_y September 17, 2015 3:38 PM BST
Farloe Blitz ran an absolute cracker the night he got picked up, he didn't come away from 6 that night and Gaytime Hawk came away running and Blitz only  barely went around. He was probably as impressive in that race as any in the Derby as he showed he can stick to it when he didn't get everything his own way. Anyway the most startling thing about that race that night wa the huge amount of ground Cable Bay made up on Gaytime Hawk.

What price are you laying Blitz at them Woody ?

The race was run on the basis of the race card information. All Tote and bookmaker winnings were paid on the basis of the race card metric.

There is nothing anybody can do, 575y was printed on the racecard given out on the night so that would be seen as gospel in a court of law. Even in the betting shops I am sure they would claim some sort of palpable error as they got the information from the RP who in turn got it from the IGB / Shelbourne Park.

You also cannot expect the on course bookmakers to do anything, they've had to pay out on Calzaghe Clampet already, some did wait a few mins on the night before paying as they'd realised the mistake.

I do think they should (the IGB / Shelbourne Park) be issuing a genuine apology for this whole shambles and not the bullcrap they did this morning.
