CB plays a part!!! Ten four Ten four for a copy come on :lol: Only us oldies will know what that is :lol: It all matters but for whatever reason I think 2 and 3 year olds are just different, yes 3yo horses will have better bars but they just don't pass it on to 2yo.

Well, 3 winners this week and two of them were dead heats. Also pipped at the post twice by Stu and a few top 5 finishes so quite a competitive week by my standards.

My Grade 2 winning chaser from two seasons ago, Deep Miss has now won a chase race in each of her three seasons in the league - I never thought I'd ever have a horse that could do that!

I will have to name my hunt stable in SO7 after Deep Miss.

Good week for me with 9 total wins, 7 over the sticks and two on the flat. Nice to win my 2nd ever classic, though deep down I know it was just another race kit wobble, she’ll go back to looking **** now.

No winners today so that makes 4 for this week, no complaints.
Oh wait, i do have a complaint!
Jupiter was a strong chance in the AJC Derby until Jim's horse Winter Warrior decided to brake check him.....TWICE!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:
I'll be looking for revenge Jim! :lol:

So in general a good week, its like my horses know the axe is out for the upload window and made an extra effort.

Two wins and two very narrow losses. That counts as a good week for me.

Congrats to Stu and Doug for your wins this week, even though Stu got the better of me in some races :lol:

Once again, a big thank you to the team, doing an awesome job!

Happy easter, everyone!

Glad to See Trade Winds Uphold last Seasons Triumph win at Cheltenham Collecting a Grade 1 Hurdle and my novice dropping into a Hunters chase to get a win my flat horses are struggling which I knew would be as I did no Flat racing in the break.

There were some flat races I won two of them, pfft.

More importantly there were some jump races and a few very decent runs from my lot though more miss than hit today. Just the one winner, but what a win from last years Gold Cup winner the now seriously out paced Maximum Impact, sentimental reasons only but glad I did not cut her.

Highlight of the day NH R12 and the ‘yes yes yes’ from stu as his nag ran down my nag on the line, some things really should be left between man and wife :)

Why even enter any horses on the flat if this is how you feel about the races?

4 wins for me on day one 2 Royal Ascot G1s and a G1 over the sticks too.

Freemantle Express
Makes it 3 wins on the bounce added the Kings Stand G1 to the Temple
Stakes & Duke of York G2 wins earlier in the season. Nunthorpe next.

Vince Lombardi
Delighted to see him add the St James Palace Stakes to his 2000 Guineas victory
unfortunately did not see the replay of the race as it was private. It's onto the
Sussex Stakes next.

Tower Heist
Been disappointing since his Galway Hurdle G2 victory on the opening week but
he is now a Grade 1 winner he took the Fighting Fifth well and is still on course
for the Champion Hurdle.

Sunnyside Up
My Grand National No.1 gets off the mark when finishing strongly to win the Scottish
borders national. This should put in the national not outside the handicap so he most
likely will not run until then.


Huge thanks to the team appreciate the hard work and effort you all put in
Many Thanks to the commentators
well done to the winners and placers

Well the highlight, if you can call it that, of day 1 for me was having 2 horses refuse to start in consecutive races over the jumps!!
Neither has ever done it before in game or in the league although I seem to remember the sire had quirks.
My apologies also to Darren Thompson whose horse in race 7 got his head stuck up the bum of my refusing horse and also took no part.

That happened earlier in the season and I re-started the race, seemed harsh to me that a refusal gets another horse stuck to it. The race kit does some funny things, wait for NH R30 when Paul’s horse magically passes through mine to take a wider line........

Or the race I called on day one or two where Hollywood's horse turns invisible mid race while leading.
