A lot of trainers would like to swap places in earnings and horses with him

If you were a big owner and looked at the way he treated Clive Smith, would you have a horse with him?
Report brendrew March 16, 2017 7:02 PM GMT
he doesnt have the ammo yet 2nd in trainers championship.

what did he do to clive smith other than train a horse to win top class after top class race.

unless you know anything different?

think a lot of owners were put off by the whole clive smith thing.

also smith and older owners either grew too old or lost interest and didn't replace them. like big bucks owner, findlay, also even paul barber doesn't seem to have horses anymore.

If he's depending on Tom Malone to get him out of the mess he's in, then he is in for a rude awakening.

Any time he has ever appeared on a Cheltenham preview is hilarious.....he gets the hump/smart remarks with anyone having anything approaching a different opinion.

Paul Nicholls had a falling out with Clive Smith at one of his open days in front of all his owners. They fell out about Kauto Star as Nicholls pleaded with Clive not to retire him as Nicholls still thought Kauto could do another season.

This seriously damaged Paul's image as there was potential investor/owners who sided with Clive, hence why Mr Nicholls doesn't have the fire power of Elliot, Mullins and Henderson.

Great trainer of chasers. I heard him interviewed earlier today and he seemed very relaxed despite the no Cheltenham wins this week. I hope he gets on the score sheet tomorrow.

Look at the form of Le Prezien, runner up behind, Yorkhill, Top Notch. Baron Alco and Charbel....easy form pick for me as they have all run really well this week.

For me tomorrow is when i will be backing some PN horses for the first time at this festival (well properly), combos and all that.

Lac Fortana has been on my shortlist for 2 years.

DDC has gone a little to up for the win RQ, still has a good chance.

Nicholls is a very good trainer and a few of his ideas have been nicked by other trainers Im0.

Maybe his problem is keeping the big ego owners happy or maybe you need a big backer these days.
Report Ramruma March 17, 2017 10:07 AM GMT
Did Nicholls ever have the really big owners? He had some owners like Clive Smith or Paul Barber who owned a one or two good horses at a time but no-one with pockets as deep as (say) Wylie or Ricci who can outbid him for anything halfway decent in France, or JP who can buy anything with a leg at each corner.

To be fair though most trainers/jockeys are great actors. How do you think they keep a straight face when one of theirs wins a big race and they tell you the horse just 'came to itself in the last week' and stuff like that?

Sure P Nicholls will be alright, Horses make trainers so given he won the title last year with fcuk all and isn't far off winning again this year (Although a GC win for Tizzard could change that) surely he'll get a few good prospects sooner rather than later as he still has the ability just the stock is falling behind the others at the top of the tree.

its henderson he needs to worry about in the trainers champ

I doubt mullins will send much to aintree this year and nicholls has not taken part in the graded races this week
Report TheChaser March 17, 2017 3:13 PM GMT
Did they actually fall out from what i read Walsh left as he was fecked with all the flying

The reason i ask about Nichols is not just because no winners here.I used to follow racing daily but the last few years i have done less and less bets on horseracing ( probably wiser ) and every bigger meeting i watch it's Mulllins / Hendo scooping most big wins.
