A race worth 220,000 to the winner and ONE entry, Jerrysback a 9yo rated 140 . Surely there must be more horses available than this lad in England , it really is shameful that so many English horses are sat in their boxes doing nothing..

Apart from those trainers mentioned surely there are other trainers who have horses sitting in their boxes doing nothing , its no wonder people are coming to Ireland with their horses and cash . Lead on , you'd make a great spokesman for them , whinging about prize money yet doing nothing when the chance appears to get some valuable prizes . This is the very reason British racing is in decline , who in their right mind would want to have a horse in training in England right now. The races are there now come out and get them...

aintree won't be the same this year with a shortage of irish runners. workrider you're absolutely right about the prize money situation and it was already heading in the wrong direction pre-covid, just have to hope that the courses don't hesitate to top up the levy funds when crowds allowed back, but I don't think prize money is the only factor, the better horses/trainers are in Ireland although you have to stand in wonderment at the quantity of trainers/jockeys in ireland who find a way to 'live the dream' with 10 horses/10 rides per week up against the big battalions.

Gordon every race at Fairyhouse today was so competitive it was unreal , in Britain small fields and uncompetitive races are the norm .The reason races are so well contested over here is the prize money one decent race be it flat or N.H..means you are covered for the season , I noticed a horse won five races in England this year and only collected roughly £25,00 for its five wins . Yesterday at Fairyhouse the least valuable of their 3 days were as follows . Value to the winners in Euros , 7,200 8,100 13,500, 8,700 ,30,000, 48,000,18,000, 7,200.
The G1 Challow and Tolworth hurdles are worth at a maximum £50,000 and they are G1s they are the ONLY 2 G.1s novices run in England and have had the same prize money since 2015..

yes workrider I remember a group calling themselves 'the horsemen' who stated their intention not to run horses at meetings where the prize money (think it was per race) didn't meet a particular standard, of course this has fallen by the wayside as others continued to run their horses regardless, indeed some 'smart' trainers took advantage of the absence of 'the horsemen' and ran even more horses!! you couldn't make it up...i've always said, until and unless the amount of AW racing, particularly out of season AW racing is significantly reduced, AND the racecourses focus on the horses and horse racing fans instead of ladies/gents/music nights and exorbitant food/beverage prices, only the biggest courses e.g. York/Chester/Ascot/Goodwood/Cheltenham will prosper

I think a lot of British trainers were shocked at the Irish onslaught at Cheltenham and hid behind their masks in astonishment , they surely have owners questions to answer , if I was an owner in Britain I'd want to know how a horse that I was paying a Kings Ransom to keep in training could run so poorly , to many British trainers have not moved with the times , H.Daly B. Hobbs and many many others are just caught in a time warp and are been left behind, to many have plodders and seem to think this is the way forward, running over 3m 3furs in hock deep going for £3,000 first prize . Its time they were told were to sling their hook and come into the present...

Why on earth would English trainers go over to Ireland for a handicap when the Irish runners have 15 pounds in hand when coming over to effectively when they go over to Ireland the Irish runners have 20+ in hand?

Not being funny though, the Irish programme is excellent for jumpers...Willie Mullins must be delighted how things are going in Ireland

English horses rarely as a rule ran in the Irish National , particularly with the options of the English and Scottish Nationals , and also the whitbread to choose from . Road runner is his buddy , a total looney tune , they are some double act on fairness .

Whilst preening your Jingoistic Feathers - workrider ...

You also display your lack of understanding of the Handicap System

UK Horses have to/are set to run in IRISH HANDICAPS off their UK Rating - All of which are based at a Higher level than the comparable level of Ratings of ALL the Irish horses running in their 'Home' Races.

UK Horses are therefore DISADVANTAGED before the Flag Falls in All Irish Jump Handicaps ...

- and it is, consequently, pretty pointless sending any UK horse to run in an Irish Jumps Handicap race... as they are all 'Wrong in the Handicap'
