    It was disgusting to see such disrespect for the very animals that give Gordon  Elliot a very nice standard of living. The majority involved in the industry love these animals that risk their lives da

    Thinking of you and your family this coming Wednesday, Tom. Wishing you peace and tranquility over the coming days. Regards BB

    Morning all. Another Cheltenham over and further proof that Irish racing is light years ahead of British horse racing. In fact, i think it highlighted how far our own racing has fallen, with mediocre fields every week.

    I was listening to Ruby Walsh yesterday explaining the structure of the whole horse racing industry in Ireland, from bloodstock to jockeys. Ireland lives and breathes horse racing where here it really is only in a few areas of the country, often as a pastime.

    As UK society changes, quite dramatically, in my opinion, culturally i'm sorry to say i can only see the sport here being marginalised further.

    Well, a successful festival for me in terms of punting, with 3 long priced each way pick ups and 6 winners. My only outright winner yday was Vanillier in the 2.30. I also had Quilixios in a double with A Plus Tard, so that narrowly went down.

    Today's selections

    Uttoxeter 

    13.50 Theme Tune

    14.25 St Barts

    15:00 Thibault

    15:35 The Two Amigos and Mighty Thunder

    Kempton

    14.05 Fairway Freddy

    14:40 Switch Hitter

    15:15 My Way

    I've real bets in Switch Hitter and My Way in a win double. A couple of single win onlys on The Two Amigos and Mighty Thunder. A single win only on Thibault.

    Best of luck to all

    Thanks to Jackie (DRECKLY), LASSIE23 ,SUMMER SUN and BRISTLE BOY for your Selections above,

    But you're a bit late Gav., the Cheltenham Festival finished Yesterday and Today is the Final Day of the Competition.

    I will make a note of your Selections, although there is no way that you can win the Competition.

    Just want to post up a little anecdote of Midlands Grand National Day, back in 2002.

    The Saturday after the Cheltenham Festival, always tends to give you an "after the Lord Mayor's show", feeling and 2002 was no exception.

    I can remember taking the Racing Post home on the Thursday night (the Festival was just a 3 Day affair, back then).

     The Racing Post had printed the Form for Saturday's Midland Grand National, and I liked the look of a Horse called     THE BUNNY BOILER but like the character he was named after, was a bit of a "Psycho." He had more letters, in his Form   Figures, than can be found in the Oxford English Dictionary!! Plenty of F's (Fell), P's (Pulled Up), a few R's (Refused) and   U/R's (Unseated Rider) but in between these aberrations, The Bunny Boiler had a few bits of decent form.

    He was Trained by Noel Meade, a legendary Irish Trainer, who had booked the services of Norman Williamson, and if anybody would be able to get a tune out of this "rogue", it would be Stormin' Norman!!

    Saturday Mornings, would often mean an early Breakfast with my Son Antony, Paul (BR7), and a few of our Colleagues, in a Cafe, in Croydon's Surrey Street Market, which was a few hundred yards, from Sunderland Bookmakers', Office.

    Sat down to our Breakfasts, with a copy of the Racing Post. I was alarmed to see that my fancy was the Selection, of the Pricewise Tipster. This meant that the Horse, would attract large amounts of money, and its early Morning Odds, would contract very quickly. Ladbrokes had a Betting Shop in Surrey Street but it didn't open until 10 AM, and we had to be at our desks, by 8.30. Fortunately a couple of my Colleagues had a Credit Account with William Hill and Ladbrokes. The overnight Odds of The Bunny Boiler were 12/1 but by the time we got through to Hills/Ladbrokes, the Horse had already been cut to 10/1.

    I'd had a reasonable Cheltenham, punting wise, which included a little each way Bet at 50/1 on Commanche Court (ridden by Ruby Walsh), in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. He ran a cracking Race under Ruby, and finished 2nd to the brilliant Best Mate. I decided to play up some of those winnings, on The Bunny Boiler and had £5 E.W. at 10/1. When we started work, virtually all the early business was on The Bunny Boiler, such is the influence of the Pricewise Tipster, in the Racing Post, so much so we had to cut the Horse down to 6/1, in no time.

    The Bunny Boiler opened at Odds of 6/1 but was cut to 5/1, 2nd Favourite, as can be seen on the Youtube clip, below.

    I've just found a Youtube clip of the Race, the Horse has Mauve colours, with a White hat. The Bunny Boiler tried several times, to unship Williamson but Stormin' Norman sat tight, and apart from the obstacles, the Horse was always going well. Myself and my Colleagues, "collected" and as did quite a few Punters, as was mentioned in the Commentary,      The Bunny Boiler, had been "backed off the boards." See Youtube clip below. Enjoy!!

    Regards,

    Tom.  👍 🏇

    Afternoon all,

    Hope I find yourselves and your Families, are well.

    Apologies to Callum, thanks for your Selections and all your help this bWeek.

    I think your Post got lost amongst all that talk, about the welfare of Horses.

    I will comment about that, at a later date.

    If Members have an issue with Horse Racing, I wish they would start their own Thread about it, instead of using my Competition Threads, to "vent their spleen."

    These Threads, do what it says on the bottle, they are Horse Racing Competition Threads, no more, no less!!

    I'm sure if the powers that be have an issue with these Competitions, they will ask me to discontinue them but I've not heard anything, to that effect so far.

    Anyway, back to this Afternoon's Racing, and best of luck to all, "Virtually" or "Actually."

    I will now post up the Results of the 1.50 Uttoxeter, 2.05 Kempton, and the value of Points on offer.

    WINNERS POINTS VALUE

    1/4 to Evens  (inclusive) = 3 Points.

    Evening all,

    Hope I find yourselves and your Families, well.

    I am just about to send an image of the Final Standings Table to Callum, for him to agree my figures.

    I shall keep you on tenterhooks though, just suffice to say, it's an incredibly close finish!!

    I will post up the image, hopefully once we've come to an agreement about the outcome.

    Morning all,

    Hope I find yourselves and your Families, well.

    I will now post up an image of the Final Standings, after yesterday's Final Afternoon of Racing at Kempton and Uttoxeter:

    image.thumb.png.6df2fba07cea1c2cac30b080ed7126ca.png

    A very exciting finish to the Competition, and I'm sure my Son Antony, would feel very honoured that it was dedicated, to his memory.

    Congratulations to Bristle Boy, who held on to win by a Short Head.

    Like "The Tiger", B.B. rolls back the Years to 2018, when he took the Competition but over a slightly shorter trip. No Midlands Grand National included, back then. See that Result, below:

    RESULT OF THE NETWEATHER CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL TIPPING COMPETITION 2018

    1st            -                  BRISTLEBOY - £94.55

    2nd           -                   HAYLEYBR7 - £92.26

    3rd            -                       TOMSE12  - £56.93

    4th            -                 JENNYJANE1 -  £54.77

    5th             -                  MATTNEAL  -  £49.37

    6th             -                ANTONYBR7 -  £48.83

    7th             -                 K/WEATHER -  £44.42

    8th         -                         PAULBR7  -  £34.33

    You can't beat the old adage, "Horses for Courses."

    Later on Today, I will post up a more detailed look at the Result, in the style of a Racing Post National Hunt type, analysis.

    I'd like to thank all those that entered and especially Callum, for all his help in "hosting" the Competition, with me. There is no way, I would've been able to do the Festival Competition justice, after all the stress and trauma, of the past few Weeks. So, I really appreciate that help, Callum.

    I will also post up some Youtube clips of the other Championship Races, that I havn't posted up yet.

    See you all, later.

    Regards,

    Tom.  👍 🏇

    I will now post up a detailed, Racing Post National Hunt type analysis, of the Result of the Cheltenham Festival Competition, dedicated to the memory of ANTONYBR7.

    image.png.4de84d53f786090094476387ea174a04.png

    1st - BRISTLE BOY - In 5th, 1st circuit. Moved into front rank 2nd circuit, and jumping well. Went into the lead 3rd circuit, after a superb round of jumping. Continued to lead, and jumped well 4th circuit. Getting tired and jumping deteriorated on Final circuit, all out on run-in and just held on - 92 Points.

    2nd - PAULBR7 - Held up towards rear, 1st circuit. Remained at the back of the Field, 2nd circuit. Made rapid headway and jumping well, moved into 4th on 3rd circuit. Continued to jump well 4th circuit, and took closer order in 3rd. Jumping well again on Final circuit, was gaining on leader run-in, just failed to get up - 91 Points.

    Later on Today, I will also post up some Youtube clips of the other Championship Races, that I havn't posted up yet, and comment on the Cheltenham Festival, itself. 

    In the next few Days, I will think of some "Virtual" prizes to award to the 1-2-3, in the Competition.

    I will also give details of the next Horse Racing Competition, I plan to "host." God willing.

    Could I also have some feedback please, on which Scoring System you prefer, £1 Each Way "Virtual" level Stakes or a sliding scale of Points, based on a Winner's Starting Price Odds.

    Thank you.

    See you all, later.

    Regards,

    Tom. 👍 🏇

    Another couple of Youtube clips of Races, from the final 2 Days of the Competition.

    First, Rachael Blackmore was at it again, in the Triumph Hurdle on the last Day of the Festival: 

    Another winner for the very talented Jockette , aboard QUILIXIOS. This helped her secure victory in the Sir Anthony McCoy Trophy, as leading rider at the Festival.

    Finally, the feature Race on Yesterday Afternoon, the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter:

    TIME TO GET UP, landed a sustained gamble, ridden by Jonjo O'Neill Jnr, for his Father, Jonjo Snr

    Evening all,

    I hope I find yourselves and your Families, well. 

    Although my Son's Birthday wouldn't have been until Sunday, he was actually born on the corresponding Saturday, Tomorrow, in March '81.

    The photo below, was taken a Week short of Antony being 6 Months old:

    large.gallery_2739_1354_194379.jpg.d01d3912c948b9e14a5d43347bfc7f6d.jpg

    My Wife, Jackie-Lee, started to have contractions the previous Sunday, so I phoned my Office Manager at James Lane Credit Bookmakers, in East Dulwich, S.E. London and informed him, that as My Wife's contractions had started, I would take the Week's holiday, I was due.

    Evidently, it is commonplace for there to be a "false alarm" regarding contractions, with a first pregnancy and so it was the case with Antony. My Wife's contractions suddenly, stopped. I spent the rest of the Week, preparing our Flat for the arrival of our Baby.

    By the Friday of that Week, with still no show from Antony, I rang my Manager to offer my services for the following Day. That Saturday, was to see the running of the first big Flat Race of the Season, the Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster, and I knew we would be busy, and my Boss agreed that I should. Just after the Lincoln Handicap had been run, I got a call from my Mother-in-Law, to inform me that my Wife's waters had broken and I should make my way, ASAP to the Maternity Unit, at Kings College Hospital, S.E. London. S--d's Law, sprang to mind!!

    Back in 1981, the Lincoln Handicap was won by SAHER, ridden by Ray Cochrane and trained by Ron Sheather. So Antony may well have been christened Raymond or Ronald, instead of being named, after his Grandfather.

    The temperature hit 70f that Saturday, and I'm sure some of you will have experienced the high temperatures, you get in a delivery Room, of a Maternity Unit. Seeing my Wife with all sorts of tubes attached to her, including one administering an epidural anaesthetic, to her. I felt pretty woozy, at the thought of witnessing my first childbirth.

    I gratefully accepted a Nurse's offer of a cup of Tea, and added "With 2 sugars, please."

    The Nurse replied with, " I was actually speaking to Jackie, Tom but I can make you one as well." Lol!!

    Antony was born at 8.30 P.M, and weighed in at a healthy 8lb 6oz.

    Although, I'm not planning to "host" another Horse Racing Competition until the Grand National Festival (8th/10th April), to commemorate the above event, would like to hold an unofficial, impromptu Competition.

    Below, are the Racing Post links to the Declarations for the Tomorrow's impromptu Competition., which features the Lincoln Handicap, at Doncaster.. Select 1 Horse in each Race, apart from the 2.35 and 3.10 Doncaster where you will be allocated 2 picks. Your Selections for this unofficial Competition, MUST be posted on this Thread by NOON Tomorrow.

    I will be using the Points System Format, that seemed to be popular during the Cheltenham Festival Competition.

    WINNERS POINTS VALUE

    1/4 to Evens  (inclusive) = 3 Points.

    11/10 to 3/1   (       "        ) = 4      "

    100/30 to 6/1 (       "        ) = 5      "

    13/2 to  10/1  (       "        ) = 6       "

    12/1 and over                    = 8      " 

    Please Copy/Paste your Selections into the Boxes, provided below.

    Thank you.

    Morning all,

    Hope I find yourselves and your Families, well.

    Much thanks to Callum and Lassie above, for their Selections in this impromptu, 1 Day Competition.

    It was at this time, 40 Years ago, that this very expectant Father was getting ready to return to work, after taking a "wasted" Week's break.

    My Wife's contractions, that had prompted me to take my due Holiday, stopped after a Day. But Antony finally "popped out" of his beautiful Mother, at 8.30 P.M that same Evening.

    I will now begin to post up the Selections, of the SE12 Entrants:

    Below, is the Table, showing the value of Points on offer, for predicting the Winner in each of this Afternoon's Televised, Competition Races.

    If you're not sure, where a Horses Starting Price Odds lie, in that Table. Convert the Top Heavy (Improper Fraction) into Decimalised Odds, as ITV Racing's Matt Chapman suggests, by dividing the Bottom Figure (Denominator) into the Top Figure (Numerator.

    E.G. 11/10 = 1.1. 100/30 = 3.333 recurring, 13/2 = 6.5. Other examples - 11/8 = 1.375, 13/8 = 1.625, 7/4 = 1.75, 15/8 = 1.875, 9/4 = 2.25, etc, etc.

    WINNERS POINTS VALUE

    1/4 to Evens  (inclusive) = 3 Points.

    11/10 to 3/1   (       "        ) = 4      "

    100/30 to 6/1 (       "        ) = 5      "

    13/2 to  10/1  (       "        ) = 6       "

    12/1 and over                    = 8      "   

    Listed below, are the Points value on offer, for the placed Horses in each of this Afternoon's Televised, Competition Races.
