Very interesting, Nina Carberry rides SDC fresh from her ban, this story could be the racing story of a lifetime, a female jockey comes from a ban to ride a horse that the messiah couldn't due to an injury, story prints itself and is in no uncertain terms a possibility.

SDC was a quality horse and his chances will not be detracted from by her supplement, however, my biggest bet tomorrow will be the Yorkhill, Douvan, Thistlecrack treble.

This treble, although they are all odds on, is the one the bookies fear tomorrow. Paul Townend takes Ruby's rides tomorrow on Yorkhill and Douvan and he is a brilliant jockey who is not,erm, susceptible to as many, erm, falls as Ruby is.The respective horses odds have not really changed since Ruby has been declared null and void

We will see, one mans opinion is another mans truth, a £50 win treble at the current odds will win you £96.
The equivalent bet placed on the current second favourites in the same races would realise you £44,000, do the maths.

They could all fall of course and its back to the Sherry and dog tied to a string on the ring road bridge caper again, hey ho, all part of lifes rich tapestry.

Good luck to all who have a punt or two or more, may you all make a profit or at the least, get a return on your investments..

I firmly believe that Many Clouds has the best chance to be a repeat winner probably since probably, West Tip, definitively since Red Rum.

Class horse. It's the old adage 'the oss doh know 'is price'.

Btw about 7 have won it twice or more, though 5 were in the 1800's!! Sorry, I'm an anorak. :mrgreen:

The Druids Nephew, however - he looked good last year until crumpling at the one after Valentines. Worth a punt.

An outsider at EW - Hadrian's Approach - won the Bet365 / Whitbread Gold Cup - whatever it's called, so can do it on his day.


West Tip only won it once.

He sure did - but in my opinion Many Clouds has the best chance of winning a 2nd since him - if you follow. West Tip was a class horse in the GN and had a couple of Gold cup runs and there is no doubt he had an outstanding chance of winning a 2nd in 87, 88 or 89 - which he didn't!! I can't think of many / any since West Tip with such as genuine chance as Many Clouds today. I hope he does it - mainly coz I'm on him!!

Away from the betting side of things, what are people's views on the safety of the horses? Every year I see people come out and lament the event because of the amount of horses that die, but from what I've seen the numbers are relatively low. It has never bothered me and I'm a big lover of animals, I just see it as a spectator sport which like most things, carries its risks. As long as the horses are treated well then I don't see the need for all the drama.

It's funny how the simplest of comments generate the greatest humour.

Good one, Cal. :wink:

One of my horses fell at the 2nd hurdle. I clearly picked the wrong 100/1 silly bet. And all my Take That loving mates are celebrating an unexpected win. Gits.

The only winners are the bookies :lol:

I normally have that problem. :oops:

As for your Take That buddies, tell them that they deserve some reward for all the years of their suffering.

You fail to understand the fundamentals of my luck and betting ken, if I had backed your treble, Rotheram would have got dry bummed 5-0.

Decided on Friday to have a £2 each way on Rule the World, as its trainer had won the Irish Grand National on Easter Monday. Glad I did as I took 40's on it and that choice saved my bacon plus did £1 e/a on Goonyella too, so picked up £110. Outlay was total of £54 so I doubled my outlay. Luck bugger really as my original main fancies all did sod all, mainly due to the heavy going after the rainstorms.
