Time to give him a much deserved retirement he deserves it

Legend deserves a happy field to graze in.

should have retired him when he bombed in that utterly crap xcountry race in november
Report hulk23 February 21, 2021 3:01 PM GMT
wasn't even a race for him today, and you want to retire on that basis.  that was an exercise canter, in public.
Report acey deucy February 21, 2021 3:01 PM GMT
No way should he run in The National after that effort.

lets be honest steptoes horse hercules would have finished the race better than that,he looked totally legless
Report brians February 21, 2021 3:03 PM GMT
I wouldn't write him off yet for the National. This was a blow out over nearly 2 miles shorter and over hurdles, the result means nothing as far as the national is involved. After 4 miles the rest of this field would be walking.

it's like saying mo farah shouldn't go to the olympics 'cos he got beat over 40 metres in the dads race at the school sports ...

It was a disaster however you try and look at it. The time was 10 secs slower than the previous race.

I thought you weren't allowed to school in public - is Elliot too high profile for that kind of ticking off? All reserved for Byrnes is it? Lovely straight game for honest folks.

Today's race probably the last thing on Elliot's mind with the shenanigans that's been going on in his yard recently.  Interesting to see how long Kate's 'vomiting bug' will last...

Maybe O'Leary had a point about Tiger Roll's handicap mark. Easysland's too, come to that.

Might be seen as schooling in public but  you can't say people were conned into backing him, it was obvious that over hurdles and so short a distance it was nowhere near what he wanted. Many trainers send their top chasers over hurdles to keep them fit and lower the risk of injury before valuable races . It is easy to spot where this is happening. Now if it was odds on , thats different.

People are sick about listening about tiger roll . Quite clearly he’s past his best , he should be retired . Maybe they will give him the retirement they gave sir des champs and first lieutenant, both festival winners , the former a dual winner .
Report Steamship February 23, 2021 4:57 PM GMT
I hope he gets a better retirement than Sir Des Champs who was killed in a point to point. Retire him and let him do the visiting courses job.

Hey brians - regarding being conned into backing, I bet Tiger Roll to be in the 1st 4 in what was a 6 horse race in the end and it was tailed off. It won the exact same race over the inadequate 2m5f only 2 years earlier at 25/1. So why shouldn't I expect a run? Why are they allowed to school? If it's not schooling, why is it "burly" - why come to the racecourse "burly"? And why make no attempt to use it's unquestionable stamina in the race. Held up out the back at sedate tempo with little effort in the end. I feel conned and I don't see why they get away with it. Some very small outfits have got into trouble for complete no-hopers at 150/1 apparently not running to their merits. Why do the big boys get away with it? Oh wait a sec.... I think the clue is in the question. Pocket-taling rant over - apologies for that. :)

You make some good points Shooda and I didn't know that he did indeed win this race with 2 pound less two years ago.  Just shows you you shouldn't post without knowing all the facts. I now believe it was schooling in public unless the horse has actually lost his ability.

i make you right shooda. this has become standard practice is nh racing....letting horse turn up fat as a pig to get an open workout should be outlawed

The cross country race will tell us of his chances in the National (my view is he has zero chance off 11-9 at 11 years of age) ....and not just his , Easyland jumped awfully on his last run at Cheltenham.

i would agree of that mark..... but hard hes hard to judge on them past performances, they have brought him to the racecourse fat as a pig.

Fat as a pig just three weeks before Chelters? Methinks some poetic licence is creeping in.
