  25. Jackie says:

    I see rough and tumble had the winner! Well done!

    Did anyone else have him? Fab pick if you did!

    Best sight Stormy getting up!

  26. kj says:

    Well that wasn’t to plan for most, Well done Rough and Tumble…I was behind Redicean. Thank goodness that horse is ok, my heart sank, never nice to see that kind of tired fall at the last.

  27. Mike N says:

    the hurdle course looks pretty knackered.

  28. Mike N says:

    3rd and 5th. thatll do.

  29. red flash says:

    that didnt look good for sandsend poor thing think defo broke its leg in that slip

  30. Mike N says:

    those Kempton raceday winners in January not produced many winners at Cheltenham as predicted. Chef disappointing.

  31. kj says:

    Glad to see that for Natives chances, fancied Our Dukes chances before Percys performance,… but with all the small price chances and my big outsider from ages ago Double Shuffle out, question is who is the one outsider for everybody else?
    I wonder if it will be the maroons and Elliott again, I will pick Outlander 22-1.
    Nominations in double figures atleast please ;) I love Killutugh Vic too but wheres the fun in 10-1 as an outsider… hoping to watch! good luck team :D

  32. Pollyowls says:

    Sticking with Total Recall… the Ladbroke Trophy was about the best race I’ve seen this season
    I think 16s is still a big price

  33. Seven Towers says:

    You like to revel when opinions don’t pan out don’t you Mike. You’re not Paddy Mullins by any chance? Feel like I’m getting struck without a chance to respond.

  34. Mike N says:

    what dya mean ST. I just pointed out a prediction that I made was correct. didn’t mention you at all.

  35. Mike N says:

    Pollyowls im hoping they nurse him round quietly. ;)

  36. Mike N says:

    If Edwulf wins there will be a cinema release in 2020. ;)

  37. kj says:

    Seeing the line up on screen again Polly and having TR in my stable there at 16s, pulls me away form Outlander to be honest I’m glad I’m not betting in this! if I was, I would probably stop at one favor fav! and one fav outsider, Native and TR it is then, final call.

  38. kj says:

    Parade always going to be Edwulf and Might Bite isn’t it, beautiful.

  39. Mike N says:

    get in Native!

  40. kj says:

    oh what a good boy

  41. Seven Towers says:

    Is the National fav dead?

  42. kj says:

    I think he got up, very nasty fall that he looked bound to do at some point

  43. Seven Towers says:

    I hope so.

  44. Mike N says:

    i thought i saw him get up ST in the background, not 100% sure though

  45. kj says:

    I had 2 computers working! to be more accurate he definately got up but it looked nasty

  46. Pollyowls says:

    All horses and jockeys are fine
    I’ve only got radio commentary… how did TR run..?

  47. Mike N says:

    kj i thought TR was going ok at the time was watching him. jockey taking the brave man’s route.

  48. kj says:

    He was going well in what was a 2 horse race Polly, not surprised 7T thought he was dead his legs were going on falling straight down on his neck legs folding.

  49. Seven Towers says:

    He has looked like he was going to fall all season. But good stuff. Couldn’t even win a NH Chase!

  50. Mike N says:

    TR jumped the fence ok and crumpled on landing.
