Banks basically crabbed Quevega over just winning the same nonsense race at Cheltenham over and over again - it did not go down well with Ruby

i think he may have crabbed Denman previously on what i have read elsewhere as well but didn't see that myself

I didn't see it, but he would be dead right if saying that about Quevega, or at least their campaigning of her.

She surely deserved a shot at a WH? If Annie Power goes the same route this year, it is a crying shame. And given his policy of late, this looks very likely.

WPM just seems intent on mopping up the easy money in Ireland. Ok, there is nothing wrong with that, the majority of owners are probably happy. But surely someone like Ricci, with more money than he knows what to do with would have preferred see Champagne Fever or Ballycasey run in the Paddy Power?? Instead of running in the seasons first prestigious chase, they are doing what WPM does....mop up the easy money.

Again this cant really be crabbed, especially from a business sense, but that is not what NH is about. Annie Power should be chasing this year. Thank God Willies father had a more daring blend of blood in him, or we might have missed out on one of Irelands greatest sporting days.

Watch again premier ... i don t think it was the crabbing of quvega that irked ruby ..... Banks passed a snide remark when mick fitz was reading out one of the tweet questions from one of the viewers ... " who s the best mare you have ridden this season ruby "  to which Banks replied " by that he means horses Ruby " !!!!!!!!!!

Well he's dead right there too so!! Sorry I missed that. Brilliant. About time they stopped licking his ring, and showed him up for what he is. A superb jockey, but a complete pr**k.

You cant be saying that on air, to a married man, in the circumstances, hope Ruby knocked him out after it.

i think the lad running around riding young ones in another country while he is married and has kids is the prick tbh Plain
By:

Maybe so, if true, but that is his private business and I certainly wouldn't be writing such allegations on a public forum, let alone alluding to it on live tv.

Premier Fantasy knows what's happening, Banks should keep his gob shut though, Dirty linen in public and all that.

I Watched the morning and remember Ruby throwing in a snide remark about bookmakers, not sure if it was before or after Geoff Banks comment. He might be a good jockey but he is too smug for my liking, particularly when he was asked which would  he ride if the Champion Hurdle was next week, Hurricane Fly or Faugheen. He has a waspish personality.

When: 29 Nov 14 20:18
He reads the forum Tony and has posted on this one before under S*************. No fan of Walsh myself. Maybe i am a bit of a dinosaur Cheltenhamroar but find your 14.00 posting a bit sad if that is the case.

all I can say pa..is Geoff is a rare thing these days..a bookie who,ll take a decent bet..and I don't think what was said this morning was meant in the way its been portrayed on here,m I may be wrong,..

theres no doubt ruby is the best jockey there has been but he leaves a bit to be desired in his attitude imo..I also think like a lot of people in racing he has no interest in punters..but I suppose he has no need to..

Incredibly Ozymandius is correct here and the prurient interest of the hot headed Premier Fantasy in Ruby's private life is wrong and sad.

His language is coarse and juvenile " fkin classic "  " riding young ones " these are the words of an immature individual and again sad.

I thought Banks tried to portray himself as clever and ended up looking a complete clown.
While I don't like Ruby as a person I think he is the best NH jockey I have seen and is normally very astute in his tactical observations when interviewed.However he showed himself up as clueless when it comes to odds when he said More of That's price should be the same as the price of him getting around.I was surprised Segal didn't pick up on it.
