can we hope they let mount benbulben go off in front tomorrow ..a little on the short side for this fellow , i really think with his customary jumping error sure to happen he'd be much better off out on his own making all , just like he did at tinahealy ....barry just might read this and heed it...if he jumps off in front , go to the front of the queue and get paid....

Actually think Marito is the proverbial...jumped well on its debut & the one that will be suited best to the 2m with ground no problem,

MOUNT BENBULBEN & JENARI need farther, & with both, the jumping leaves a lot to be desired....neither of them are naturals...just cant see then having the pace to trouble Marito & can see them readily outpaced at the business end...if they are still on their feet.
Report Allduckornodinner January 5, 2013 8:49 PM GMT
I think Mount Benbulben has jumped progressively worse with each run over fences. I couldn't touch him with his recent record. Mullins horse in the first didn't look no great shakes in Gowran but looks like he'll draw all the same. Interesting card but like Thurles the favs aren't bomproof in the main for me.

We could be in for a quality winner in the bumper by all accounts.

I hope you had a wry smile Workrider as you watched Mount Benbulben knowing everything and I mean everything you said about him turned out to be true.He obviously has been well schooled and it showed,thought he was ridden to jump round and would have beaten Marito if he was ridden into the last,I am not complaining as they were getting the horse to jump without putting it under pressure but he has some engine and ran a great race.
Champagne Fever was obviously sick so draw a line through that form.
Punchestown is right about Gareth Malone he was very poor on Totally Dominant,got the horse running and was taken to the outside by Exterminate but then he managed to get him to duck back under the whip,he followed this by going for a crazy gap up the inside,while bulldozing his way through there he lost his iron and just failed to get up.Grecian Tiger got tired in the dreadful ground and looked unimpressive but I feel he was in front too long and will be much better on better ground.
Report Allduckornodinner January 6, 2013 6:41 PM GMT
Workrider did you take much notice of Dawerann in the ring before the bumper? I thought it was interesting that someone wanted to get matched at 20's on here last night for a few quid as you'd expect a runner from the yard in a 4yo bumper in January to be at least double that. They didn't collect obviously but he looked to run a nice enough race looking at it on tv and I can imagine he'll probably improve for the experience.

Report lustrumm January 6, 2013 7:22 PM GMT
Wildman my own opinion re Mount Belbulben is that Davy Condon can't settle him. Carberry finally got a hold of him today and he ran his best race yet. If his jumping continues to improve I could see him betting a bit pot in one of the handicaps at Cheltenham where settling won't be any issue. Clearly all talk of Graded races is at an end now. He is a good 2 mile handicapper in the making, no more

A very good crowd including WR!! turned up for the first Sunday meeting of the new year at the popular Naas venue.

Race 1) Jennies Jewel 6/1. Only seen this on the in running betting. Seemed to be the only danger to the jolly Upazo (8/11f) Good shout from WMFB. Ruby in his column in the Examiner wasn't too bullish about this one. Ground concerns along with the extra 3 furlongs.

Race 2) Marito 4/6f. The jolly was made to work hard by WR's favourite horse. This was Ruby's nap as he said he was a great jumper. Arkle at Leop next I believe. I would be surprised if Willie didn't have something better.

Race 3) Rule The World 7/1. Mouse was sweet on this one and it was pulling double all the way up the straight to win as he liked. Champagne Fever (1/4f)went out like a light and was found to be suffering from a respiratory tract infection. I was told afterwards that the jolly was a shadow of himself in the paddock beforehand. None of the Gigginstown crew were at Naas but I heard today that Mouse is hoping next stop Cheltenham.

Race 4) Beneficial Spirit 10/1. A handicappers delight as half the field were in contention between the last two fences. Brian O'Connell made the most of a nice spare to get the better of Geraghty on O'Grady's Quiet Thought. Luke's Benefit (7/2f) ran an honest race and ran out of steam in the run to the line. I had Rothwell last on another thread that Keen Leader had up. Revision maybe needed. 33/1 in the morning. A nice coup. Saoirse Dunn brought off a nice coup at the beginning of his winning sequence at the last meeting here in November.

Race 5) Charlies Vic 15/2. It's not often a 7 lb claimer gets the better of a champion jockey but Derek Fox didn't look out of place up against Russell, Carberry and Geraghty. All four were in with a shout up the straight with Charlie's Vic edging it from the jolly Our Girl Salley (4/5f). Geraghty had said on his blog that everything was right for his mare, ground trip and course but it just ran into one too good. The winner had been double figures in the morning so connections who I know nothing about got a few quid.

Race 6) Thepartysover 9/1. A welcome winner for M P Burke who had a lot of placings as this one got up in the shadow of the post from the jolly Fair Dilemma (4/1jf). A credit to the handicapper again.  I later learnt that the trainer Gerry Hayes is from the Moneygall clan ( relation anyway) of Ollys fame. The pub Obama came to in May 2011.

Race 7) Grecian Tiger (8/15f) I don't whether this one won easy or not but I do know he stopped to nothing in the last 100 yards. I was too busy watching Darwaan. Allduck, I was at the paddock with WR and Sinndar for this race and I have to say Daarwaan looked well so much so that I chanced £2 at 75 on here. If I wasn't yapping to someone during the race I would have traded out for a nice little profit. It went as low as 3.25.

I would recommend everone on track to tune into the Irish Racing Team on Twitter. Within 10 minutes of each race they had a quote from connections of each winner.

Twitter if properly used can be a mine of info.

It's well worth following Barry Geraghty as he let's us know when his blog his online. And most informative it was too.
Someday we will get workrider to tune into twitter.

One other point. I changed newspaper at the weekend. I used get the Indo but since Christmas the have gone tabloid only, with the result that there is no pullout sports section. I got the Examiner for the first time. What a paper. Brilliant brilliant brilliant!

1) An excellent and informative column from Ruby Walsh.
2) Also one from Jessica Harrington.
3) Pat Keane's selections. The best tipster bar none in the trade. ( Thepartysover)
4) A thought provoking article each weekend from Keane. This week it was titled ' Leave Thurles Alone' and it was excellent.
5) Sports pull out section and colour cards for all the mainland tv action.
