The Stewards considered the running of ALWAYSTHEOPTIMIST, ridden by Sam Twiston-Davies and trained by Phil Middleton, which finished unplaced. The Stewards noted the trainer’s explanation that the gelding is a gassy sort, never settled and tired rapidly. They ordered ALWAYSTHEOPTIMIST to be routine tested.

I can - it wasn't off.



Blinkers fitted first time rarely work, his next run is the one to watch.
Or to be more precise, the next time they place it to win.

When was the Last JP owned horse to be found guilty of using the racecourse as a training ground??

What a load of b@llocks that explanation is from Phil Middleton. Especially when you consider what he said about the horse before the race.

Phil Middleton runs Alwaystheoptimist and said: "He's ten but I think he's still improving. He's taken a hike in the weights but is so fresh and well. We'd be happy to lead if there's no pace."

Anyone would think he's talking about a completely different horse here!

Surely that sets a precedent for every single trainer to say the exact same thing - no doubt they will all get treated the same as the untouchables....

Rancid sport, I use the term sport very loosely.

That's my favourite - ''the race came too soon after its previous race.''

Of course, obviously the next question should be ‘’then why did you run it?’’

But the stewards never ask them that.

I am sure that sometime in the not too distant future the horse will show the necessary improvement needed to get it's head in front ... by the application of wheelbarrows of cash Mischief

Jenny Pitman was on the morning line, and replied to Jimbo’s comment about a poor run from a certain horse ''that it needed motivating in order to get it to perform to its best.''

She said ‘’ and what motivates it – when it's been backed at 13/2?’’

A classic line from Jenny.
