how he rides for a stable like Mullins is unbelieavable.  shocking ride.  he even falls at the last to make sure he doesnt win
Report duffy March 10, 2012 4:33 PM GMT
it is annoying when you see the front horse sailing off into the distance whilst townend is sat there with his thumb up his ar5e.

never put it in the race
Report Tickite Boo March 10, 2012 4:34 PM GMT
That looked well dodgy. Drifted before the off and ridden like a non buzzer!!!!!!!!
Report Lee Ho Fooks March 10, 2012 4:35 PM GMT
Agreed, the fall was nothing to do with the horse putting another one in before it jumped the last
Report carrot1960 March 10, 2012 4:36 PM GMT
horse falling at last saved his bacon would not have beaten winnerand was a poor effort, its not as if it was a 100/1 shot it was the second fav and he knew enough about the horse he was riding to know it would not close the gap and he should have rode it closer to the pace or made his effort sooner
Report bigmickey March 10, 2012 4:37 PM GMT
scandalous the mor on simply didnt want to win
Report diktat March 10, 2012 4:38 PM GMT
the horse was never asked a question till the last.  no excuse for not putting the horse into the race. would have won if it front run with the 2nd fav

How many here new his riding instructions??
Report haplessamatuer March 10, 2012 4:42 PM GMT
** knew**
Report diktat March 10, 2012 4:43 PM GMT
do you think his instructions were to drop him 15 lengths off the leader throughout whilst still travelling well?
Report salsabil1965 March 10, 2012 4:44 PM GMT
who cares !

more nonsense from salsa...I DIOT.....
Report Tickite Boo March 10, 2012 4:46 PM GMT
He was trying to be a smartass judging the pace as being too fast early and got caught by the balls. Thought the leader would come back and he didn't.
Report salsabil1965 March 10, 2012 4:50 PM GMT

what nonsense 
are you going to chance the result-no
did you lose money on it- don't know don't care

get over it horse lost and thankfully is ok as for mullins and townsend couldn't give a damm about them as they couldn't about you !

last 4 starts, Gagewell nowhere near the horse he was when winning couple of Grade 2 novice hurdles in Jan 2011.
He was never really travelling in debut novice chase under Ruby last time at 4/7 when beaten by ordinary type, (with modest mare just behind in 3rd), so no wonder this horse drifted today.
Winner arguably had better recent hurdle form (when fell on penultimate start), and perfectly entitled to beat Gagewell if jumped ok.
Pretty certain Steeles Rock will beat Gagewell if they meet again
Townend a brilliant jockey btw.
