A marvelllous afternoon's racing at Cheltenham prefaces another intrigueing Friday night meeting with Johnny Murtagh and Pat Smullen in battle again.

Race 1) One Set and leading trainer at the track Ger Lyons to open proceedings. The old phrase, back the top weight in a nursery.

Race 2) An Auction Maiden means bad horses on the whole. Shareen for the Oxx/Berry combo stand out a mile having finished a never nearer second on his last visit here.

Race 3) A 0 to 65 means more bad horses. Russian View can give Murtagh another winner in his title quest. This one is sure to improve from his seasonal debut and can win again.

Race 4) A cracking Listed Fillies race can see Johnny Murtagh extend his lead on ultra impressive filly Fourpenny Lane who pulverised the opposition here 3 weeks ago.

Race 5) Baskirov and R P Walsh won here last night and can follow up. It would be great for builder Luke Comer. It brings back memories when he actually had a horse who came 3rd in the English ledger a number of years ago.

Race 6) Bypass Shaimaa likey market leader for the Shark whose horses are not going well. Too tricky for me.

Race 7) Another ruddy 0 to 65. Take a chance on the Murtagh treble with Inis Ceithleann. Peter Casey has his horses back in form after many years in the wilderness.

BJG they are always tricky in Dundalk. For a change most of my lays actually got turned over. My nap Inch Rebel was turned over :(

Ya some funny results last night, a place pot divy of 15k says it all really.
The Nanny are going to have to do something with the jackpot though, the grand total of 345 carried forward to tomorrow night.I never bother with it any more at the small meetings, just not worth it. The placepot on the other hand has blossomed ever since it was opened up to the British betting public.

differ in opinion about one set
has been beaten several times off 78 now
the nursery he was 2nd to dream dear: form has not worked out
ran flat lto over 5 when i though he'd a chance

value represented by JUMBO STEPS imo
has run well in defeat against better oposition
was close enough over 5f at dalk in bewitched/moonreach/reggae dancer nursery which was very fast and the form of which has been franked several times
good luck all!!

Swinia, I can't have San Sioacharn. For starters when did Johnny last ride for Joanna. Also Wayne Lordan who is involved with the Coolmore lads via the Wachman stable wouldn't give this mount up lightly the way it bolted in here 3 eeks ago.

What the hell are the layers playing at in Dundalk!!

They going all the way out to 3/1 to attract business and they could have laid what they liked at under 9/4 on here.

Some fools betting down there!!
Report sintonian November 13, 2009 5:45 PM GMT
soapp, why you so sure Charinamix wont win ? Looks at his York run over same Trip. I backed him that day and was seriously seething he did not place. Was in the perfect position coming into the home straight, then Richard Hughes decides to let other horses around him have first run, consequently when he goes to make his challenge he find's trouble and finishes out the places. Pulled hard early on aswell.

Nevertheless, that performance left me Cold, and im not backing him for real, just entered in the Comp. I dont like the trainer one bit. Sorry!
Report soapp November 13, 2009 5:55 PM GMT
Sint I was only going on betting trends. When his are easy to back I find they don't win full stop. Just an observation.

Usually there will be a few pound for it before hand rather than all of it on the track imo.
Report sintonian November 13, 2009 5:58 PM GMT
ok ta. Not backing it anyway but his last Flat run is worth a Look.

BJG if you did it for a €1 it would have cost you €648 and you would only get back €109 80

Not good :(

648 x 50 cent bets :| = €324

2x1x1x2x2x1=8 x 50c = €4 winning line x 109.80= 439.2= 115.20 profit :| i think

Could have done with a few favs goin out :( oh well

Great rider Carroll. Not impressed as laid it at 5.3.

Also sick as laid Bashkirov at 4.5 and had backed Timoca at 14 (1.06 in running)

Life can be cruel. Well done to you.

Tomorrow is another day!!

Ya none of this flat stuff ;)

Really lookin forward to this weekends fare- hopefully the weather allows a full programme!
Report soapp November 13, 2009 8:52 PM GMT
With a bit of luck Punch will get the go ahead.

They have changed the card around.

There is only the one chase and that may be over the bank course as L'Ami is in it.

So if all comes to all they can scratch the chase and we will be left with an all hurdle and bumper card. Better than nothing.

Richie Galway is doing his best for us, not like the last meeting where he did his best to get it called off as it was only a midweek meeting imo.
