Didnt even know they were covering the meeting.
When: 07 Mar 21 12:55
Leopardstown on TG4 live today at 2.30.
When: 07 Mar 21 19:08
only found out about Leopardstown when talking to a family member just now

would have liked to have see the 2.45 on the tv coz my internet was iffy all weekend

had a nice position on French Dynamite as it looked like a bot gone wrong was laying him at 1.34 to 1.45 late last night

i used up my bank at 1.35 and was surprised to see it go even higher

was back to 1.20 this morning

as it happened it had a few sketchy jumps but won it well in the end
When: 07 Mar 21 20:19
televising Naas next Sunday apparently

When: 08 Mar 21 12:16
They are televising the next 6 Sundays, think there is a double meeting or two in that also.
When: 08 Mar 21 14:28
Fair play to them..
cloone river
When: 08 Mar 21 16:13
Good coverage.
When: 09 Mar 21 14:04
Nice to know , ty lads
When: 09 Mar 21 15:36
French Dynamite wasn't straightforward considering its SP alright,there were a few moments just before turning in when it had a race on its hands.
When: 10 Mar 21 11:54
I'd have been worried if I'd took the 1/7 alright..
When: 11 Mar 21 18:21
Puppy had to get serious for a few strides Laugh
When: 12 Mar 21 21:35
Punchestown , Robcour their horses are not progressing as much as I thought , you got an opinion..?
When: 13 Mar 21 12:58
Naas on TG4 tomorrow,who are you talking about workrider?
When: 14 Mar 21 13:32
Plenty of young horses last year that I thought would come on and bring them right up to the next level , only F.Dynamite seems to have progressed to the level I expected so far , for the amount of money he's put in not really showing it worthwhile just yet..
When: 14 Mar 21 14:12
They're not exactly setting the world on fire alright.
When: 28 Mar 21 15:33
great coverage today Naas and Limerick

pics on my phone well ahead of TG4 though

some lads need to gin up on their maths
offering better odds on 4TBP comparing to 3TBP on Yukon Lil

not that it mattered much

2.20 Fairyhouse Mares Chase
I think Elimay will have too much toe for Mount Ida

Been weak all morning but i think that is JP trying to get a price for later on

rest of the card isn't appealing but tomorrow is much better as expected
When: 05 Apr 21 00:48

jessies are in form, and she always targets the spring, could she win the big one tomorrow 33/1?
also 2 more darts at 14/1.

Prob all worth a ew extra flutter.
When: 05 Apr 21 11:16
good luck all with the national
will be throwing small stakes at a few outsiders and laying Sempo

4.20 is a conundrum
fakir d has the form but tough race at Cheltenham and trainer form a worry
i can't have battleoverdoyen at this time of year, on this ground and again trainer aint great

i wouldn't normally want Easy Game but 5s when his market rivals could flop will do for me

Willie's are running well eventhough the's had a lot of fallers
When: 05 Apr 21 11:22
stormy Ireland has returned to Mullins
i doubt she will run well but won't be laying her

French Dynamite- small stakes
When: 05 Apr 21 19:58
Cupwinkcook, you dodged a bullet there..
When: 05 Apr 21 20:23
had more sense than to lay Stormy Ireland, Workrider

Deffo dodged a bullet in Sempo
small place lay (just about)
bit more on the win lay, Sempo kept creeping into it, looked ominous until about 2 out

made my money on Easy Game
pity about the nrs, ruined any plans for place laying Battleoverdoyen
When: 05 Apr 21 20:52
on the subject of the Stormy Ireland switch
thought she benefitted from a very good ride from Danny Mullins today

some of the defeats in England could have been turned into wins with the right pilot on board

shows the gulf at Cheltenham is partly down to assistance in the saddle
When: 06 Apr 21 09:47
I got her wrong yesterday as well, I thought she needed it softer. Training methods rather than jockey ship is how I see it, many of those English lads talk a good game but when the money is down its our lads who win time after time..
When: 07 Apr 21 19:57
Aintree on UTV and Virgin Media1 Thurs Fri Sat
Opening show itv4 9.30 each morning

no meeting last year so less course form(good and bad) on offer

2m4f hurdle is particularly intriguing

good luck all, will post my twaddle at some stage
When: 08 Apr 21 12:24
a good open race, lack of track form doesn't give enough to go on
place lay Umbrigado
was handed the race the last day and lacks a touch of class

top 2 very admirable, hard to split
John Locke has the profile to pinch 3rd

clan, waiting, mr fisher all too short
tiger roll form all on other types of obstacles - lay
native river - diddled here before Christmas with the obstacles omitted, ground ok, always runs well here, jonjo ok but not ideal - Back

dunno what to make of Real Steel

another good open race
i can't have Abracadras or Song for someone
Jason Brewinupastorm and McFabulous positives

skipping the foxhunters

Moon over Germany small stakes

Been watching Eileendover all season
she gets weight as a 4yo and could hack up
i am on at evens and i will take my chances
elle est belle respected especially with course form
When: 08 Apr 21 13:16
Smashing write up Cup, its always nice when someone takes the time to do their homework , a right tricky card as far as I can see, only bet I'm having right now is Willies in the F/Hunters. Good luck today...
When: 08 Apr 21 18:41
Arthur Moore ...........what a great trainer and proves the old saying class is permanent. Must have really fancied it taking on COVID19 and Brexit to travel. Great memories of Arthur and Tom Taaffe........... big hurdles gambles and many landed...............great trainer
When: 08 Apr 21 20:18
A mixed day, more bad than good.
I got Abracadras wrong, think it would have won handy regardless of the Jason the Militant fall but it did help
Abracadras cruised throughout

Clan Des Obeaux is frustrating
Having opposed him at Haydock, I backed him at Kempton and Ascot
the latter in particular was disappointing
He was devastating today having ran ok previously at Aintree

tough card tomorrow but will put down a few thoughts on the Grade 1s
When: 08 Apr 21 20:36
Third Time Lucki is too short at 4.8
for me
If Henderson has Dusart ready, then i would prefer him at 3.0
it's an odd race though

Bravemansgame is a hell of a horse, the 2 that beat him at Cheltenham are top class
The opposition is uninspiring
I am not convinced Aintree will suit Bravemansgame and despite Nicholls being in form, it's more the fresh horses doing the job
He had a tough race in the Ballymore
Right horse, wrong race imo

Very interesting race
Chantry House should beat these
Espoir De Romay for 2nd

You can shoot holes in the others
Some mightn't go on the track, hard to assess but Fiddlerontheroof is one i don't think will cope

Shan Blue is a lovely jumper but i think he is over the top
Sporting John could get outpaced

Big Breakaway is solid enough, but can't see him winning
Neither Hobbs or Tizzard yards are going well

Silver Hallmark should be 20s not 12s but should run ok

Empire Steel isn't good enough
When: 08 Apr 21 20:50
I am happy to oppose Fakir D at the price
tough race at the festival
ran once before at Aintree, nk 2nd in a bad 4yo hurdle, so inconclusive
Stable not going great

Politologue is solid, reasonable record at Aintree, fresh, stable form
just a feeling something might do him like last time
i don't like the fact that Nicholls has multiple runners either

the 2 outsiders aren't for me

Nuts Well ran a cracker at Aintree in the old roan
is fresh
and despite not having a high profile is close enough on official ratings
if the race was anywhere else i wouldn't back him but here i would

Dashel Drasher is solid and holds TommyTucker on the last day and i wouldn't be laying him

master tommytucker could do well at the track but i think he is over the top

will try to turn the above into a betting strategy
When: 08 Apr 21 20:51
would also be interested in what Kevin Blake has to say tmrw morning

talks a lot of sense
When: 08 Apr 21 21:01
Great posts Cupwinkcook,I like Dusart as well and Cape Gentleman in the staying novice race.I wouldn't be going mad on either of them though as I've been hopeless since Cheltenham.
When: 09 Apr 21 11:10
Good luck today Cup, Shan Blue is one I'll give a second chance to today, surely Harry wont make the same mistake again, another I'll be having a small bet on is Any News had word for it awhile back , will look into the later races soon. Punchestown unlike your good self I'm doing fine so far, after all the talk about Rachel falling off yesterday out of spite I had a £10 on her in the bumper @ 25/1 on here. A tiny bet I know but amazingly it worked out...Laugh Good luck today .
When: 17 Apr 21 09:54
Sunday TG4 Tramore and Dundalk
Willie Mullins has fancied horses inmost of the races but reading his column he isn't that confident about them

Ayr and Newbury on VM1 and UTV with the better quality racing
When: 23 Apr 21 00:43
some great racing in prospect at Punchestown next week
Early evening start times, RTE2 coverage from 4pm

Sandown Flat on Friday ITV4

Sandown Jumps on ITV Saturday
Navan TG4 on Sunday

Early thoughts on Sandown's big races

You can keep the Bet365 Cup, run of the mill handicap, not for me

The Select Hurdle looks interesting. Pic Dorrhy wouldn't be for me and doubt he will stay, will be looking for alternatives

Oaksey Chase 2m6.5f
The 2 outsiders are unlikely to be involved
I don't like Mister Fisher, way too many jumping errors
Frodon ran readonably well at Sandown in his one outing there
will benefit from a tactical ride from Bryony
trip about ideal
at the forecast 1.65 would be my idea of a rock solid bet

Celebration Chase 2m
Put the kettle on gets 7lbs mates allowance
on the basis that Altior isn't worth his 169 rating anymore, 4 should be in the shakeup

of the outsiders, if Nuts Well handles the track i would prefer him to Dolos and Ornua
if there was a match bet between Nuts Well and Ornua, 1.7 Nuts Well would do me (working off forecast prices 14s v 20s)

in the main event :
writing off Altior could be foolish
Track record and in this race is exemplary
If his rating was 165 instead of 169 he would have as good a chance as any if he ran to it
Will he though?
And i wouldn't believe a word of what his trainer has to say about him

reasonable runs all season including at Sandown
will need the other 3 to underperform but should be in the shake up
again i would question his 164 rating

Sceau Royal
Felt sorry for connections as was going well at Chelt when clattered 3 out
Get the feeling something will go wrong for him again but dangerous if putting it all together
again reasonable track form

Put the kettle on
Cheltenham specialist and she could be 10 lbs better there so she isn't value at 7 to 4 given Sandown is considerably different
on a side note, connections sticking with Coleman is commendable and probably the right decision given the rides he has given her
not a fan of Coleman in general though
this race will tell us a lot and if she jumps well i would be inclined to go back for the Tingle Creek coz ground and/or the hard race at Chelt could undo her
When: 23 Apr 21 22:08
Looking for a one two with henry's in the celebration at sandown. Don't think good to firm is PTKO 's ground and wouldn't be shocked if ORNUA turned up.
When: 25 Apr 21 15:43
De Bromhead needs to get his thinking cap on for alternative courses for Put the Kettle On

Cheltenham in November and March is a given
A midwinter race is less obvious with Tingle Creek almost certainly ruled out
Leopardstown at Christmas probably isn't her bag either

Punchestown Tuesday has 2 fabulous races
Monkfish Envoi Allen Coolreevy Franco de Port

Chacun Por Soi Nube Negra Allaho First Flow Cilaos Emery Castlegrace Paddy Daly Tiger

2m nov hurdle has a diappointing turnout, 5 runners headed by Echoes in Rain and Blue Lord
