It's a great idea, bigbillbovington, so here's what I suggest for *YOU*. Chelters week, don't buy a RP or go to any racing websites, don't turn on the telly, and don't open any racing forums / social media sites.

Good luck with your virtue signalling and see ya the week after.

If Dianne Abbot had half a brain she'd be dangerous.
Croatia indeed.

Bigbill, the same monotonous pillock who blamed the 2020 Chelt Festival for covid.

Why just Cheltenham, lets ban/block/cancel the Premiership, too, that'll learn 'em!

Should just ban the Russian entries.

I agree that EVERYTHING should be cancelled in sympathy with the Ukranian people's suffering, but only if those suggesting it commit suicide in sympathy with the Ukranian dead!

bigbill just doesn't like Chelt for some reason

if it's not covid it's some foreign war being reason enough to cancel Sad

Should just ban the Russian entries.

On a lighter note anyone remember the 3 Russian horses that came over for the 1961 Grand National though only two made it to the race. They had to carry top weight in their preparation race(s) and the Grand National so had no chance. But as a young lad I loved the idea of them competing (they was also a French contender that year).I backed the winner Nicholas Silver too Grin.

No. Ban Russian owners and possibly racegoers but why would you cancel it?
Report timberman March 4, 2022 10:47 AM GMT
Force a namechange of any horse with the Moscow prefix or any other Russian placenames .

We are probably lucky the Russian oligarchs dont have horses running or people like Willie Mullins who beat their horses would be poisoned by Russian secret service

May as well have Cheltenham as it could be the last,the way things are going.

I would support a ban on any horse sired by Sholokhov ( definitely a KGB agent ). This has nothing to do with my having layed Shishkin and Bob Olinger.

would of been a tricky one if Moscow flyer was in his prime.
