Hopefully the jockey on Hillsin in the last at Worcester there gets a long ban. Couldn't have made it any more obvious he was trying not to win.

Just watched it back and read the report. Referring to BHA and horse canít run for 40 days. Trainer confirms he was running to instructions until the last. First time out for trainer and obviously not sure what he had, hence the price. Fucked it up for future gambles, thatís for sure

There is another option. Mr Ferguson organises the fixtures in his office and sends it to us and everyone will know and cannot complain. That is simple.

The sport is so corrupt. Thereís almost nobody in the game thatís trying to win every race they enter. Gambling on it is an absolute minefield as theyíre all twisting fuckers whoíre trying to get a low handicap mark. Mark Prescott runs a horse for 1m6 over 7f for 3 races thatíll go off at 150/1 or bigger and then itíll rattle off 4 or 5 in a row on the bridle when itís upped to its actual trip at odds on and theyíll not bat an eye lid. Boughey did the same with a horse called Concorde. I wouldnít encourage anyone to ever gamble it nowadays. Itís as bad as Iíve ever seen. Itís only worth paying any interest as you never know when youíll see a superstar horse. Thatís what keeps me interested.

While it was a very disappointing field for the Eclipse numbers wise that was a great finish between the two class horses

What a horse race. 2 best jockeys in the sport and 2 fantastic horses going at it for 3 furlongs. Paddington is made of strong stuff. Many a horse wouldíve shirked that after racing at Ascot.

I saw a horse called Sparks Fly win its 6th race in a row today. First 5 runs in its career were on All-Weather, 100/1 on 2 occasions. Managed a third place on its fifth AW race, and took an OR of 59 to the Flat. Its OR today for the 6-timer was 93, and it won by almost 2 lengths and probably has more to come, especially on softer ground  :lmao :lmao :lmao

Already 3/1 for the 2,000. Definitely looks an outstanding horse, but lots can happen over such a long time, i'm always wary of backing 2yo's Ante Post.

He was impressive yesterday, not sure what he beat, and Iíve always felt that AOB never sends his good horses to this meeting (July Cup aside). But possible he could be an exception

Had my worst-ever visit to Chester the other Friday night.  And that is saying something as I've been there 100's of times.

Not one winner or one place.

To use a Poker term.  I blew my stack, and that's me done for the month :(

Moan over.  As you were lads

Pretty much sums up my two trips to Newmarket last week, although I did get one winner in the very last race. Coming after my Ascot debacle I think itís time for a break

At least until Goodwood in 2 weeks

Only watched it the once, but canít believe she got up, was going backwards 2 out, looking like she hadnít picked up at all, then from nowhere comes flying down the outside over what looked a perfectly timed run from Bluestocking

Marathon trips is where she may hold her own. Still not convinced about that though. Looks like OíCallaghan has a good one in Kairyu. Loved Henry Longfellow too, he is bred to be spectacular. Dubawi x Minding is about as good as you could see on a page.

She was available at 999/1 in running apparently, so was amazing she managed to win.

Yep donít often get a proper field for this race anymore. Agree with your shout for Pyledriver too, so thatís him trailing home last :)

Also think Emily Upjohn is worth a go, seemed a good run in the Eclipse, only just losing to Paddington over 2f shorter, would think return to a mile and a half is in her favour

It's a fantastic race on paper and completely agree with Pyledriver. He needed the run last time and still won. Best horse on ratings I think though Auguste demands respect.

They finished strung out like the washing there. That Sea The Stars x Taghrooda partnership produced a couple of decent ones in Baaeed and Hukum didnít it?

I thought Pyledriver was in a great position but didn't have the speed. Also backed Hukum in the end so pleased with that, a serious racehorse indeed.

Great battle between the front two but a number below their best there. Hukum clearly an improved horse though.

Alflaila might be the next big improver in those colours, given he probably needed that run today. Great day for Owen Burrows

Hoping for a Godolphin double in the next 2 at Ascot

Yeah, Pyledriver just didnít seem to have it. He looked cooked turning for home. A lot of no shows there and most of them short enough in the betting. King of Steel ran alright but got done by a couple of better ones on the day. Hukum would have to be a big player in the Arc. He likes soft ground too which heíll likely get in France.

You're also right about Auguste Rodin; extremely unpredictable. I thought he had a decent shout but the odds were far too short.
