    Johnb can you explain to me mate why you didnt NAP/NB Thistlecrack today you have been so keen on that horse but you ended up losing 2 points today adding it in with the other 2 i know its ages since you got a NAP/NB winner up were you scared to jinx it lol.
    It was very impressive again today reminds me of Cue card the way it travels and slightly high head carriage wish i had your 20s i’ll have to settle for my 10s

      Couldn’t double stake Thistlecrack as I really liked Three Faces West today who should have won but Tom O’Brien kept slowing the horse into every hurdle which meant the horse couldn’t get a rhythm going and it used up all the horses energy doing that, Three Faces West is one of the best jumpers about so it was strange that he didn’t just let the horse jump

      Thistlecrack was always going to be a strong pick as the write up said but really my NB should have been just as good

    Since when double staking a horse stopped you from tipping another horse?

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 12 months ago

      It doesn’t, I just have a strict points system for my horses & a staking plan for those points systems
      Because of the three fancies I had today that I expect all to win it made Thistlecrack a level stake,
      If Thistlecrack had been a double stake today then Three Faces West would have had to be one as well so where do I stop?

        A suppose thats where we all differ with our gambling because a’m struggling to understand how you could make a horse thats been off since last season 276 days and got beat on its only other try on heavy ground as strong a bet as Thistlecrack which you new was fit and well with questions marks against its main rivals.
        Anyway just 1 bet for me tomorrow Merry night 3.40 Thurles Evs Patrick to make all the running Thurles bumpers should be alot weaker than its last run at Fairyhouse.
        Is it not boxing day yet lol

    Cheers a thought Three Faces West was just a bit keen and thought Tom O’Brien was just trying to keep something in the tank for the end which meant its jumping was not slick enough.

    That is the slowest 2 mile flat race you will ever see, which just ended up as a 4 furlong sprint and a race that no form can be taken from,
    Only horse the tactics suited was the winner so well done to the jockey
    The winner even tried to pull itself up earlier because they were going so slow, poor judge of pace by Robert Havlin

  25. Profile photo of
    12 months ago

    Sure was Johnb Havlin was sitting in perfect early position 2nd then dropped back to 4th out wide he should have moved his horse past Luke Morris when his came under strong pressure you could see he was going to be hung out wide all race. The winner actually hit the rails coming round the bend but still had enough up its sleeve as you said great ride by Kieren Fox poor poor ride by Havlin IMO rode to cocky thinking he was on best horse.

    Well the result has been amended personally dont agree he did ride into him but terrible choice dont think it had any real implication on the placements but there ya go i think still i did say e/w so still in the profit way to put a damper on the party stewards lol.

    It looks liek WH have still paid out though so nvm lol

    They just said most bookies have paid out for both the 1 and 2 in the 2:10 so anyone who back Classic mission should get paid check with each of your Bookies

    Although i expect Dolphin Village to win in the 3:00 Cloverly bay at 9/2 E/w is worth a look at though only gonna get evens really some bookies are 9/2 so might not even be worth it ill just be watchign myself

    Guys whats your thoughts on the last race at Fakenham today has anyone taken a bet ?

  36. Profile photo of
    12 months ago

    gengar most bookies pay first past the post in UK and Irish racing nowadays then if places get reversed they have to pay on the new winner
