V.P, no, the name of the horse, is what I usually say when the race is finished. ( Or close enough)
Seriously, though, it was listed as an eyecatcher in the Racing Post after the Hunt Cup and it’s drawn one and racing post says a low draw is best, so at 20/1, I thought give it a bash. Need a loud one to try and catch Ray.
That’s the logic, buddy.

Valleybhoy.
Fill your boots.
Believe it or not, I wasn’t a million miles away from taking your selection.
I like Johnny G, in the handicaps.
He runs horses in handicaps, next thing they are Group 1 winners, always worth keeping on the right side of him.
Good luck.

Regarding the “absolute gent” you met, can I assume it was Steve Ellis?
Garry posted Everlasting Love by Love Affair last week and I quipped that the instrumental part in the middle sounded like “ a flootbon” ?
Did Steve Ellis mention that he played at Parkhead?
He was in Widowmaker who were on the card in The Who Put The Boot In tour on June 5th 1976 at Celtic Park. Featured The ‘OO , SAHB, Little Feat, The Outlaws, Streetwalkers and Widowmaker. Great day oot??

P.S. horse in the morning when I check non-runners ?

I’m going to try big Jim Goldie’s raider in the 2-30 pm York:

Euchen Glen is my selection.

( though I’ll be covering Jim’s other runner, Nicholas T too. )

Good luck folks.

4 places in that race today , for competition purposes I mean – you’ll get at least 5 places in that race from the bookies.

PLEASE NOTE :

The place points ( in brackets) will only come into play in the result of a tie at the end of week 20 as we look to split into two leagues of 11. Very unlikely they’ll be required. The places will almost certainly be determined by the £ value, but if two or more people are sharing 11 th place on the same £ value, the ( points) will determine the highest position.

Also – Please note – places are rewarded under standard rules
1-4 runners – win only
5-7 runners – 2 places
8-15 runners- 3 places
16 and over ( handicaps) – 4 places

All will be settled at 1/4 odds.

That’s terrible so it is. Intimidating and antagonistic towards poor wee innocents trying to get on with their work. ?

By the way – this is the horse racing thread. Move over to the “ motivator v the rest” one. You’ll get more interaction over there bud?.
