Palace fan ? Yeah he goes to every game. Palace follower more like.
Report SlippyBlue August 7, 2021 2:25 PM BST
I've met him in The Albion pub, 5 minutes walk to the ground, a few times.
He wears his Palace shirt and is a good bloke to chat to.

I'm a season ticket holder and I don't go to all the games, hope this helps.

Is there any trainer who isn't in great form according to Luke?

Never met him but seems like a good egg to me,self deprecation his specialist subject.

As Churchill said about Attlee,he’s a modest man with a lot to be modest about.

Punchestown I totally agree.....I really like him and reckon he would be good company over a few pints....in contrast Ed Chamberlain's specialist subject seems to be taking the piss out of and putting down others at every opportunity.....how he got the main gig I don't know.....seems very full of himself and I can't see why.... others could easily slot into his place and thereby improve the show.

Love the quote BARROWBOY but as it happens I quite like Luke and can put up with his lightweight sort of style.  What i can't stand are brown-nosers and top of that List is Brough Scott's "virtual" love-child - Ollie Bell.  He is awful and gets the mute treatment every time he appears.

I'm ok with Luke Harvey ant the Sky team in general, however the ITV team with the exception of AP are very poor.

His mrs is a stunner
Report Regbutler August 8, 2021 9:22 AM BST
His previous missus was also a stunner, think she ended up with Paul Nicholls for a while?
Had a couple of good evenings in the pub he used to run, near Lambourn /Faringdon
He's very good company, loves a laugh

And  he was a jockey unlike Chapman though I think a certain pro gambler on here called him the 10lb penalty.

didnt a tv feature follow him pre cheltenham as he was on a favourite at the festival.....it didnt come anywhere or maybe fell.

seems a decent bloke to me though,probably great craic in the pub.
Report themightymac August 8, 2021 9:03 PM BST
Sure he won a big race on Country Member for Bob Turnell in the famous Tree Tangle colours of Mrs Williams.

And I`m pretty sure that he rode Katabatic in the great match ups with Waterloo Boy and another very good un whose name I can`t remember.

He was a very good jockey and seems like a decent guy. I like him.

Noticed for a few years that Luke Harvey (unexpectedly) regularly gets candid viewpoints and answers for those jockeys, trainers and connections he interviews.

... which can be no bad thing.

Watch him in the future, with a totally objective hat on..... it's quite surprising.

Report LoyalHoncho August 9, 2021 12:25 AM BST
I rarely watch ITV racing live.  I watch on here then skim fast through the recording at night so see if there are any decent looking interviews and to catch any schooling/horses at leisure/foals/breeding clips etc.  Too much flim/flam and rubbish talked about and highlighted on the prog. itself none of which is of any use to making money, making winning bets, etc;.  And that idiot Ollie Bell???
Report Storm Alert August 9, 2021 9:23 AM BST
I like Luke Harvey, sure he would be a good guy to have a few pints with. Self depreciating but always lively and positive. He shared the riding on Katabatic (couple of wins including at Cheltenham) with Simon McNeill for a while who eventually got all the rides. Rode over 250 winners incl Coral Golden Hurdle at the Festival on Taberna Lord as well as the Welsh National previously mentioned. I seem to remember him finishing 2nd rather too often when I backed him.
