Great documentary, Robin. Loved it. Boudot is a tremendous pilot, if I had a horse good enough to run in a big race and he was available I wouldn’t hesitate to book him.

Agreed on the Boudot documentary, watched it back twice the last couple of weeks, found it very interesting.

Got three for tonight at Dundalk:

6:45 - Muraahin 2pt win 10/1 Bet365 - Still a maiden but the speed figures achieved at Chelmsford & Lingfield earlier in the season put this gelding amongst the best of these. He's well drawn and I'm hoping Gavin Cromwell has him ready.

6:45 - Talk Now 4pt win 22/1 Bet365 -  liked her last run fading during the last furlong, dropping back to 7f should suit nicely, she's nicely drawn and should be up with the pace and run well.

7:15 - Jim Barrie 2pt win 9/1 Bet365 - My figures would indicate Jim Barrie will be right in the mix here, very happy with the booking of Oisin Orr, nicely drawn and pace of the race should suit.

Running total: -4pts

Turns out Allmankind can jump a fence  ;) Interesting. Don't think Cheltenham is his course but that was very very impressive.

Proper round of jumping that for a 4 going on 5 year old.

Loved the way he attacked his fences there.

There are some very able jump jocks around at the moment. Sean Bowen in particular is riding with a lot of confidence. Anyone watch Tom Queally getting his first ride over jumps for Gary Moore? Difficult to believe it’s a one off; given how he’s struggled for rides on the flat, maybe a reverse of Jim Crowley or Graham Lee’s career path?

Didn't catch it how did he ride?

Might go that his way as his brother is running plenty of pointers and jumpers over rules in Ireland at the minute.

He was second on the favourite in a grade 4 handicap chase. Looked neat and tidy; his mount didn’t jump that brilliantly, despite being a Fontwell regular (Fontwell is Gary Moore’s ‘local’ track along with Plumpton, as I’m sure you’re aware). Yup, be good to think he can earn a living over the sticks given his unfashionable status on the level.

He's just got engaged to Hayley Moore, might explain it a bit more. He's back on the flat tomorrow I think.

Speaking of jockeys, Mitch Bastyan was one I had high hopes for 2 years ago, feel like he's fallen off the face of the earth at the moment.

I can't take the credit only came across it on Twitter when I was trying to figure out what the fuck Queally was doing on the favourite for a handicap chase at Fontwell  ;D

Queally has had a few rides over jumps in Ireland. Pretty sure they were for John Queally around Christmas last year. Might’ve even won 1 if I remember.

Well in mate. Not having a bet myself but hoping siskin can win his race think he's a cracking horse.

Agreed - fabulous ride, there’s not another jockey currently stronger in the finish. I had a few quid e/w on her, and Glass Slippers. Should have made it a double👍

I think I’d agree. I have wondered for a while whether Ryan Moore and O‘Brien will part company any time soon? His judgement seems to have deserted him.

I think it's only a matter of time to be honest. Seems to have lost that little bit of edge ha had over the others.

Just read on Twitter that Douvan's full brother is entered in a point over in Ireland today. Goes by the name of Jonbon. If he wins expect to see some big numbers on a cheque.

If he’s anywhere near as good he will be a beast. Been doing speed figures since about 2014 and on my numbers never seen anything like Douvan over the jumps.

Absolutely ludicrous horse. If he'd stood in the Champion Chase last year I still believe he'd have won.

Cheers Pete, horrible when you miss one like that!

Going through the card at Dundalk tomorrow and got one selection so far and its a big one!:

4:20 Latchet 5pts win 50/1 Bet365. Might do nothing and I might be seeing something that isn’t there, but on my figures Latchet should be right in the mix here.

Season P/L: -12pts

Also playing reverse forecasts/tricasts on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 14 in the 4:50.
