      Hi Guys,not been on here for some time now,but would like to share a little grand national story with you'ze.For the three days I was working on an interview camera dedicated to the "top"bookies.One of which was Betfred.Mark Pearson (head of media)He  tells me on the Friday that he was giving me a "free bet on the Nashional"On the day he tells me my free bet is to be £50 quid.
      Easy one for me as I fancy Many Clouds.So £25 each way was my bet.Later on producing my betting slip,I'm amazed to read the price 40/1.The outcome is "obvious and I picked up £1250.
      That night my family (inAintree) along with my wife (who travelled up from Surrey) had a birthday party for me.Next day I took them all out for lunch before setting off for home.What a week that was!!  :)

      Nice one mate! You done a lot better than I did!

      Flat season is pretty much over for now, Just the Breeders Cup to look forward to then the winter nights set in! Fancy American Pharaoh in the Classic, Golden Horn in the Turf and Nyquist in the Juvenile. I don't see anything to beat them three. Beholder being the biggest threat to American Pharaoh, but I still fancy him to bow out on top.

      That will be my treble, but with my betting record I certainly wouldn't give it to anyone as a tip! :D

      100/1 winner of the Melbourne Cup... it's the Grand National of Flat racing, pick something lightly raced and low down the weights.

      Great story behind Michelle Payne, first female Jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, and her brother Stevie who has Downs Syndrome, and works for David Weir (Trainer) and led the horse up. The whole family are a credit to racing in Australia.

      Frankie Dettori finished second on the Willie Mullins trained Max Dynamite, and picked up a one month ban in the process.

      And we seen a sad end to the career of Red Cadeaux... pulled up with a fracture to his fetlock. Latest update is he is comfortable and can be operated on, he won't race again but at least he will have a life.

      Heartbreaking news to hear of the passing of Pat Eddery today. A true legend of the sport, he epitomised the passion and devotion of the sport.

      RIP Pat.

      Fuming with the news today that Any Currency could lose the cross country chase at Cheltenham back in March. Not so much that it will probably lose it but that bookies wont pay out on the horse that will be promoted to winner, Josies Orders.

      Cost me £11121.51 at time of reckoning, had a word with Paddypower on twitter, who promotes justice payments and not even the slightest budge from them. Same with racebets, the only two that I really use.

      After losing out on £60,000+ last year on Annie Power falling at the last when clearly going to win and now this it really piss you right off at times this game. Sad thing is Josies Orders should have won the race anyway, was just given a poor ride, to be fair to Nina though she made up for it on On The Fringe later in the week to some degree but still #gutted!

      Hope some of you were on the Charles Byrnes gamble today. Some lucky folks had 16/1 14/1 12/1 on each of the 3 horses, wasn't as lucky to get those aweseome early prices but because I like his horses when he has a gamble I thought I'd have a £100 interest on the three and thankfully Paddypower payout at best odds guaranteed which gave me £4k+ extra on the bet.

      £9,300+ profit off a speculation like that, very happy with that!

      Here's a look at the slip to show just why it pays to bet with a bookie like this and not stinking ladbrokes (who only guaranteed up to £200) and the other high street thieves!

      Daily Fail - numerous pics of ladies day at Aintree, apparently no horses present just loads of tits, arses, wine, pissed up ladies and litter.

      Same sh*te as last year mate where they printed similar sh*t,fair play to mick Fitzgerald on itv though singing the praises of the city  & the support from its people during the scare in 1997 and the  way they rallied round & a great story from him  where the jockeys  all went into town and when he got weighed for the re-run on the Monday  he was ten pounds heavier  :lmao:

      The Echo of course painted a different picture with scenic views of the course and multitudes of elegant ladies dressed to kill.
      An obvious result of not restricting images to the 50 square yard area around the bar location as the Daily Fail did, Aintree racecourse is set in several square miles of immaculate scenery and to not highlight the fact is perverse when the images portrayed are a few square yards of plastic glasses etc and some tipsy locals, very odd.

      Always do e/w Jim, there's usually at least one horse that has to be shot because of a broken leg or something, so relieved they were all ok this time  :gt-happyup:

      Derby day approacheth (this Saturday).19 runners (atm) Aiden O'Brien has 5 runners,Godolphin have 3.Paddy Pilley takes over the ride on 500/1 shot Diore Lia.Gina Mangan not thought good enough to ride in the worlds greatest race (by the BHA), due to her inexperience ??
      Joint favourites @ 4/1 are Cliffs Of Moher (Ryan Moore) and Cracksman (Frankie Dettori) looking for his 3rd win in the race.
       Cracksman's sire ( the mighty FRANKEL ) is looking for his first win in the Derby.
      Both Best Solution(Pat Cosgrave) & Permian ( William Buick ) are the top rated horses ( 113 ).
      So !! Question is who will win?
      My selection is Permian.Just touched off at Epsom by Cracksman.However since then has won 2 class 1 races, the last being the Dante Stakes at York ( and was very impressive too )
      Good luck if you have a flutter.My advice as always is, only bet what you can afford to lose.
      Be lucky..

      Moore was highly complimentary (unusual for him) of Permian. I was very impressed with Cliffs of Moher, Chester is a good track to practise for the tough test of Epsom.

      Cracksman is coming into it with all the reputation and talk of outstanding homework but like you I think Permian has a good chance to reverse the placings there.

      So while I'd just nudge it to Cliffs of Moher I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Permian win and backing that with the thought of laying off in running would be an excellent play.

      Anyone playing at Cheltenham?

      Good day for the punters so far. I'm about 60 up so far. Bookies will have lost a lot so far today but just got one back with the loss of Apples Jade.

      You’re a better judge than me if you can nail down the King George on Boxing Day... a seriously good race. This season is throwing up some fantastic clashes, no waiting until March this season!

      I can make a case for any of the leading 6 in the market... but I think I’ll play it safe and just go for Might Bite and Native River in a reverse forecast (box exacta). That’s not the most confident bet I’ve ever made.

      Not sure what your appetite is to talk flat racing this time of year, but I had to put on an ante post bet this week. East, who was 2nd in the Breeders Cup Juvenile fillies to the absolute monster Newspaperofrecord is still as big as 33/1 for the 1000 Guineas... I cant let that pass, if she was trained by anyone named O’Brien, Gosden or Stout she would be 6/1 now and 1st or 2nd favorite at the start of the season.

      Another wild ante post bet is a horse called Code Of Honor for next years Kentucky Derby. He’s a 2yo by Frankels full brother Noble Mission and born in late May. The last thing this horse should be is a precocious,fast 2yo on the dirt, yet that is exactly what he is. And I cannot fathom the idea that he won’t be better at 3. Spiked a temp before the Breeders Cup so was scratched, but there was big expectations of him there and had he ran any sort of race he would be heading the market with Game Winner over the winter. As it is he’s also available at 33/1 now and I’ll have my few quid on and let it stew. He just worked 4f in 49.20 seconds this morning so he’s not showing any signs of slowing down.
