It will be interesting to see what way the Irish numbers are. I'd say the executive will get a fright when they see how few Irish make the trip.

Poor card?

Looks a good novice hurdle but the novice chase that ends the card could be an outstanding contest.

2 very good lookin races imo

The 1.50- Menorah the most impressive bumper winner here this year imo- see Philip Hobbs has it now and entered in this- tough assignment though first run over hurdles- looks a hot race

and the 4.05- looks to be a few good ones entered in this, will defo be a few Cheltenham clues in this

I see An Siorrac entered in the X-country race too, surprising imo ?:|

I can only imagine the chaos (but mighty craic) in O'Neills.
Report Isotonic. November 10, 2009 11:21 AM GMT
O neills will be absolutely thronged. went there last yr on sat for Ireland New zealand rugby and it was crazy. my advice woulde be to leave track before the last if you have no financial interest and get in there asap
Report Cranedo November 10, 2009 11:40 AM GMT
Stop shouting :(
Report moneypenny November 10, 2009 2:57 PM GMT
Id say Oneills will be madness for the game. Id say if you want to actually watch the game a quieter spot might be in order. Tailors just off the high street might not be a bad spot to watch a game
Report kavvie November 10, 2009 3:01 PM GMT
i wont go to oneills either..lots of better places to watch it..oneills will be full of people half cut

We were also wondering about spot to watch game
Report cluain meala November 10, 2009 7:32 PM GMT
Flying from Cork on Thursday. Haven't missed one since Rooster Booster won the Greatwood. A great weekend, although this may be my last trip for a while:(
For anyone interested, just around the corner from Taylors ( I think I have the location right anyway - very near the Big Sleep?) there's a greasy spoon called Del Boy's. It's in a basement with only about 5/6 tables. Jesus, there's some feed in there for £6. I made a show of myself last year. It's very rough and ready but everything apart from the tomatoes is spot on.

O'Neills is second only to the now defunct Dawn Run in the "Biggest S*ithole in the Town" stakes.
The bar inside the door and to the right in the Queen's is a short head third.
Report ATC November 10, 2009 7:35 PM GMT
where would you recommend CM? Is there anywhere in gloucester?
Report KK 05 November 10, 2009 7:41 PM GMT
Tailors is a good option if you want a proper look at the game. Plenty of screens and certainly less mayhem than O'Neill's (it may be a sh*thole but it still is mighty craic if you have the energy for it and I find the bar staff a lot sounder than some of the peacocks in Tailors).
Report cluain meala November 10, 2009 8:01 PM GMT
I've never been to Gloucester ATC, so I couldn't tell ya.
Tailors is probably your best bet. Plenty of taxi's pulling up outside the Queens, which is nearby, which is handy.
To be honest I never go too mad when I'm over so wouldn't have frequented the vast majority of the pubs (I'm getting old!). Staying out by the digs at the Golden Valley roundabout would suit me if it was on somewhere.

Sorting out the Greatwood would appeal more to me.

If you want nightlife, avoid Cheltenham. The place is a kip.
Report ATC November 10, 2009 8:06 PM GMT
TGM please enlighten further, you cant make such a damning condemnation without providing a viable alternative....
Report ATC November 10, 2009 8:07 PM GMT
cheers cluain, I am part of a 19 strong team of sub 30 males, so we will be hitting the town pretty hard....
Report cluain meala November 10, 2009 8:17 PM GMT
Good man. Enjoy.
When you hit the 30 mark like I have you'll give up on all that nonsense :)
Report thegalwayman November 10, 2009 8:21 PM GMT
Realistically, a 19 strong crew of males under the age of 30 will have a great time anywhere but I'd rather have gone to the Aran islands for a weekend. For what it is worth, Cheltenham nightlife during racing is brutal. The pubs are all extremely busy and are, without exception, dumps. O'Neills and the Queens hotel are the two biggest shiitholes I have ever stood in. However, if you are into hotels that feature prostitutes in the lobby and middle aged men asleep in chairs, the Queens is your only job.

The 21 club attracts a more discerning clientele. It resembles a 1 bedroom basement flat that has been tarted up for a 21st. I can only imagine that the club was established in such a fashion, hence the name.Here, if you are lucky, you might see Howard Johnson scrapping. That said, this may be the only place in town where you will encounter a woman under the age of 30 who is not 'frustrated'.

Go and enjoy the racing but this is not Las Vegas, or even Galway.
