    The three points gained on Monday was returned to the bookies satchel on Tuesday.

    Moving on and over to York

    2:40 Hoof It @ 12/1 (NAP) Decent performance LTO on ground that would not have been to his advantage, ticks the boxes today, Shrewd Trainer.

    3:15 – Goken @ 33/1 (each way) This is a race that has produced plenty of shocks in past, so why not again, was 40/1 on BFSB gutted i missed that. K Ryan / J Spencer.

    3:45 – So Mi Dar (NB) beat the colts LTO in the Epsom Derby Trial, was going to be my nap until I picked up on the comment about Promising Run not liking the dirt at Meydan when chasing home Poler River in the Musidora on World Cup night. 10/11 about SMD is sort enough (will have a saver on PR)

    4:20 – Castle Harbour. First time in a Hcp, Gosden / Detorri, 7/1 looks a big price.

    That’s it … Elvis has left the building.

    if you say so, poor guy was harassed and bullied for months and in my opinion the guy who is responsible is still here , you can say he let one guy beat him but would you keep coming back to HELP people for FREE just to have someone take digs it wasn’t right nor fair and has such we’ve lost two valuable members of this community that will unlikely be replaced.

    were all aware its incredibly difficult to implement an IP ban and has such your hands are tied since its beyond obvious the man has about 10 accounts, you or admin should have a few members you trust be given moderator status just for chat to delete the unwanted comments seeing has its not monitored enough,just a suggestion has its your sight.

    but people come here for tips and this guy is tipping from half his accounts i know people don’t have to follow but they do come here for tips if he is spreading them round separate accounts he cant be that sure and people follow and its them that are getting hit the hardest buy this mess.

    i wasn’t even going to comment and I’ve stayed out of it but you make it sound like he should just take it on chin and get on with it,bullying is wrong in whatever form it takes and it became so intolerable we lost two top tippers and nice people.

    rant over ill never mention it again I’ve said my peace shame for the genuine tippers Johnb,Doguie,Alanm,Davyb,Duncan,DC,Jimron,postman,Mr F .i wish you all the best for the future still a top thread but whats right is right and whats wrong is wrong.

      gengar, he wasn’t bullied – he may have been slightly riled.
      But if you post on a public forum you’re always going to run into 1 idiot.
      His problem seemed to be any comments put up against him weren’t immediately deleted but I told him there is no one looking at comments 24/7.

      recoba 2 years ago

      No I just think the drop back in distance will suit.
      Its not so much changing my mind its just the fact I took Erik the Red as a tip quiet hastily last night and never noticed Spanish was out again. Don’t want it winnings and am not on do SMALL stake single on it for me.

    By the sounds of it I have been missing the fun again,
    For comments earlier I have always said I don’t mind getting slagged off,
    People just need to act like adults and accept childish comments
    its not life or death, there are more serious problems in the world to worry about

    Racing today is all about So Mi Dar, she doesn’t need to win as Epsom is the main one but should win
    Bookies are running scared not offering even money so no bet

    The way I see it, people who bet sensibly, within their limits and understand all the possible variables that going into trying to pick a winner will never moan.

    Those who moan are those losing what they can’t afford to and expecting johnb + other tippers to provide them with consistent, guaranteed wins. They also must lead a very, very pathetic life to want to troll these boards, so let us pity them and nothing more.

    Take a leaf from my book, I am the poorest person on here and I guarantee I risk more of my total net worth than any other person, I’ve lost everything three times in three months using this site and no discontent, not even asked for a food parcel from anyone.

    Got £5 to spin up today, Ill be back later to tell you how unlucky I was losing it.

    from the Sporting Life but I do like the word pulverised

    So Mi Dar (4/5 favourite) pulverised her rivals to win the Group Three Tattersalls Musidora Stakes
    Daughter of the high-class Da Re Mi, beaten in the same race on the Knavesmire, John Gosden’s filly took her unbeaten record to three with a convincing success under Frankie Dettori, who had earlier ridden Magical Memory to victory in the sprint feature.

    Having been prominent on Magical Memory, Dettori took his time about So Mi Dar, who settled nicely enough in rear as Best In The World took them along.

    Asked to go and win the race three furlongs from home, So Mi Dar took lengths out of her rivals before stretching clear to win by four lengths, with Fireglow (3/1) just edging a bunched finish for second.

    The winner had previously landed the Investec Derby Trial at Epsom, form which had been well advertised since, and is expected to head back there for the Oaks in which she could face 1000 Guineas winner Minding, although her previous Epsom win qualified her for a free entry fee for the Derby 24 hours later.

    “She’ll give me a good spin around Epsom,” said Dettori.

    “She’s got what you require (for the Oaks) – she’s got tactical speed, she travels, quickens and stays the distance.

    “Now it’s up to Minding (hot Oaks favourite). She’s got to step up in distance – she’s very good – but I’ve got a good one, also.”

    Gosden said: “She’s a lovely filly. She settled well and is very progressive.

    “I could not be more pleased with her. She’s very generous and settles like a grandma.

    “We’re heading towards Epsom. She’s a proper mile and a half filly and if those two run (Minding and So Mi Dar), it will be some Oaks.”

    When asked about the Derby, the trainer said: “The man who will probably make that decision is the man who named her, Andrew (Lloyd-Webber, owner-breeder).”

    Lady Lloyd-Webber said: “She does look really good and we feel very lucky to have had these very good fillies.

    “I think that (Derby) would probably be a longshot and I don’t think we should be frightened off by other fillies that have got entries in the Oaks.

    “You should never be frightened off by one horse, so hopefully we’ll be there.

    “This story goes back 20-odd years to when we bought her grandmother, so this is very special and like a member of your family.

    “It would be very difficult for her to be as good as Dar Re Mi. She won the Sheema Classic, she won the Yorkshire Oaks, she won the Pretty Polly over a mile and a quarter so she was versatile, she also won the Prix Vermeille and was disqualifed unfairly. But we did expect her to win today and she really did win well.”

    Fireglow’s trainer, Mark Johnston, said: “It’s hard to know what to make of that. She looked beaten a long way out, but then plugged on.

    “We need to put our thinking caps on. She’s probably not an Epsom filly and at the moment, 10 furlongs looks about right.”

    Saeed bin Suroor was pleased with the performance of fourth-placed Promising Run.

    He said: “She’s run well at the weights, but I think a mile will suit her better. Maybe she could go for the Coronation Stakes (at Royal Ascot).

    “It’s so far so good and she should improve for the run.”

    Sky Bet So Mi Dar to 5/2 from 11/2 for the Oaks and Michael Shinners said: “The Derby picture may remain a little cloudy but it couldn’t be more different in the Oaks, with two high-class fillies set to go head-to-head.

    “In any other year, that exceptional performance from So Mi Dar might have seen us cut her to a very short price but in Minding she will face the sternest test of her career. The Oaks is a race to look forward to.
