Feel a bit for him.  Not easy in a field as big as that.

It was done on purpose surely, no one is that thick.

And the most pathetic thing about it all is no apology from ATR yet

Who made a mistake at Aintree over the big fences - then came on here to apologise?

Oh look no apology and he's mocking you I/R punters to some degree, the cheek of it Laugh

You cant defend that ffs, he's paid pretty good money to call the action and should know ffs, defending that is a disgrace.

You can sympathise with Dessie who has a field of 26 or so to deal with but backers who put there cash on based on a commentary reallly needs there bumps felt.

In your ignorance - on this and other threads ...

You are obviously blissfully unaware that he is the COURSE commentator - and NOT the "ATR commentator."

How many runners did Mr Mcmanus have in the race ?
There were only 2 with these colours.

Multiple owner entries must be a priority for commentators prior to a race .....it really is not very good.
Report Flemensfirth December 27, 2014 3:16 PM GMT
There's no excuse for it all. Part of a commentator's job is to swot up on all the colours in the morning and to note those with similar colours in order to avoid such a farce. Totally unprofessional, in many professions you'd be sacked for such incompetence. He though, will get off scot free of course. And I didn't lose a penny by the way, I was on the winner for a place.

Thought i would pay a rare visit to the BF forums on the back of this. I see the usual idiots are still around. Get a life some pictures and move on. Dont blame others for what is a rare mistake from a very good race caller

dreadful commentator, God bless him
Report Wesdag December 27, 2014 4:08 PM GMT
An honest mistake which was corrected immediately.

In running punters should note that they are playing with their own dough not his so make sure you know exactly what you're punting. Cool

In the very next race there was Kilkishen and Kilclispeen. These could have found out many a commentator but Dessie handled them brilliantly, with unwavering accuracy.

Didn't somebody else have to apologise a couple of races later?  (I thought it was Shouty Man but my recollection is that it was a RH course!)

3.10 at Chepstow. Called the wrong faller but corrected himself quickly - though not before someone had laid the non-faller at 1000s though.

Koo made his money with a 1000/1 shot incorrectly called as a faller.
