One thats very interesting is Seskinane , beat a couple of Willies hotpots in Sligo , only to lose the race in the stewards room ..His last run at D.R. I felt he was about to run a massive race only to be brought to a standstill and finally unship the rider , getting 12lbs  ( inc riders claim ) tomorrow I think this is the e/w steel ..Mad Brian will find it hard to give so much weight to this fellow ...

" ended up "
When Workrider put up Si CEtait Vrai the horse was trading at around 2.66 here,he probable was odds on when Workrider became a layer which is why he said ended up.
He may also have watched him in the paddock and wasn't happy with what he saw.

Putting up selections the night before is fraught with danger,conditions can change there can be non runners.
I fancied a horse of Tom Foleys in a recent Thurles bumper but when I saw him I thought he should have been withdrawn as he looked injured to me.

Twinlight never jumped a fence Tony , Ruby made a remarkable recovery , but he was beat to far out to really know if he stayed or not , he's normally a very good jumper so i was a little taken aback by that display....

I have raced for years and met many punters some very successful but I have never come across one as good as Keen Leader.

This is just an observation but if JP or Charles Byrnes pals ever want to manipulate a market just send that man five grand and tell him to rag their selection.

No sooner had Keen Leader spoken negatively about Milsean  huge sums started to appear to lay him,sadly the greedy that jumped in will probably mean we will hear less and less from Keen Leader.

I am not a layer as I have seen Willie Mullins inherit yaks and turned them into champions,many times I have been told a Willie Mullins bumper horse was useless in the point to point field but still danced in.

Think Chancol will win the opener-ran a decent race at Leopardstown as a sighter and should be better today and in the last Bonzo Bing may be worth taking a chance on at a decent price-there was money for it at Leopardstown and all it done was stay and track may suit better today. Good luck all.
Report silvergreaser January 12, 2014 9:20 AM GMT
Well done santry for getting the thread back on topic.

I agree with you as regards Chancol certainly has by far the best recent form but as always with a Mullins newcomer you don't really know how good they are, Aklan was decent enough on the flat.
Jessies The Engineer was no mug before his long sabbatical, might just be out to shake off the cobwebs before going chasing as its last run before its absence was a beginners chase 2nd to Gift of the Gab, but if fit and ready to go it would have a chance.
Best to see what the market vibes are before investing.

Flaxen Flare looks a worthy enough opponent for Un de Seaux but many seem to think UDS is the real deal I'm not convinced just yet so I might have a speculative punt on Flaxen as Foildubhs hurdle form is no great shakes and I suppose Akatara is turning up again to grab 4th place prizemoney.

In the 1.40 Leavethelighton looks the proverbial ew bet to nothing against the hot fav.

The same can be said for Pencilhimin in the 2.10, and with Robbie Power reunited with the horse whom he won on first time out suggests connections expect a good showing.

The 2.40 looks between two Mad Brian and Irish Thistle and with Mad Brian proven at the trip and who runs nearly all his best races at the Meath tracks he looks a solid punt to me even at around 4/5.

In the 3.10 if Shepherd King can rediscover his defeat of Hit The Headlines and Minsk at this track he too looks a sound ew investment, that connections are bringing the horse back to Navan suggests to me a return to form could be imminent?, he has dropped 3lb in his two sub pars runs so only 7lb higher than his Navan victory.

Happy punting!.
Report wildmanfromborneo January 12, 2014 9:49 AM GMT
Very uncompetitive fare.

Noel Meade not training many winners but any he does get seem to get solos,Wounded Warrior has no opposition so watch the combined forces punting the bejaysus out of it.

I am not sure the small field will suit Mad Brian so think Irish Thistle worth a bet.

Harney fancies Bonzo Bing in the bumper and has decent form,Sucker Punch is either useless or doing someone a favour last time although he is by a sire I hate,Scorpion they will all be temperamental,there was some negatives for Milsean here earlier but he won a Dromahane point to point which means he definitely stays and they generally are good,he will do for me.

I like Barneys Honour in the Foxrock Chase but am worried about Ms L ONeill does anyone know anything about her,could she be a banner girl.

Willies comments for todays runners:


"Aklan (Ruby) makes his hurdling debut in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He is a nice type to have as a maiden at this time of year and, if he can bring his flat form to jumps, he will fit in well here. He jumps well at home but we are not sure that this heavy ground will suit him. Un De Sceaux (Ruby) goes for the 2 mile conditions hurdle. He is in great form at home and this looks like another nice opportunity. Hopefully this will be another step up the ladder to meeting graded opposition. Popcorn (Ruby) has his first run in a handicap in the 2m 4f handicap chase. He will love the ground and is a very good jumper. He has a tough task here with his weight but we have to take our chance when is like this. Milsean (Patrick) has his first run for us in the bumper. He is a lovely big strong chasing type who has won a point to point. This tough track should suit and we think he will handle the ground. Hopefully he will be involved at the business end."

"Hopefully he will be involved at the business end?", I know its often pointless reading too much into Willes comments as he can often be cryptic, but would'nt you prefer if he said I think he should be involved at the business end instead of hoping?.
Probably be punted off the boards?

Follow the sign, E/W in the handicap hurdle, ran his best race in over a year and looks like he is coming back to form.The handicapper has dropped him a few pounds so I expect a good run.
Pencilhimin.in the same race is a very interesting runner, a 9 year old full brother to War of Attrition who is only having his 5th run over hurdles,he has a lot of scope for improvement. His new trainers strike rate is off-putting.

Shinrock Paddy E/W 10/1 has lots of ability, although he is a hit and miss type character. A Grade one winner over hurdles, he is still a maiden over fences(Placed 5 from 9). He needs to be ridden prominently so the application of blinkers for the first time today just might do the trick. There is no doubt that he is well handicapped.

Killiney Court was a big eye catcher last time at Leopardstown.

Unlike many of Colm Murphy's he looks a natural over the hurdles and he ran well under very tender handling.

It is hard to see this being any more than another day out for him, but he would be interesting each way if any money came for him. It is more likely that the owner will go for the win at Leopardstown in 2 weeks though.
