  1. I thought he had too,maybe Ryan only got 1...
  2. For a first match together not a bad performance albeit in a 10-7 defeat. scores were level at 5-5 at half time. The first 5 minutes of the second half was where the game was lost for me,the opposition scored 3 quick goals without reply. Barry the cat was kept busy for that early spell in the second half and possibly a lack of fitness didn't help. I seem to remember the opposition being a team that the original clackervalves played at premier 5s so they are seasoned campaigners. Fenny bagged a hat-trick on his reappearance and the reliable Ryan and Matty put in solid performances, Oli proved difficult for the opposition to pass while newcomers Chris and Swanny had decent debuts. Team : Barry Pablo Ryan (2) Matty (1) Oli Fenny (3) Chris (1) Swanny Goals are in brackets,though I need players to confirm they are correct.

  10. Jules we trip around saturday mornings between Garstang Charnock Richard Hart Common Haigh Hall Southport Duxbury Park (Chorley) Great Lever are offering midweek rounds from ?12,if you can get midweek days off.
  11. Friday 1.30 SAM WINNER (6/1) - 4TH beat GRANDOUET in the trial for this but ran a stinker in his next race,Ruby Walsh is the jockey. SMAD PLACE (8/1) - 10TH Course and distance winner. 2.05 SKI SUNDAY (9/1) - 9TH 10LB rise in the weights after great victory in last race.C/D winner. SOLDATINO (14/1) - 11TH Henderson/Geraghty still not had a winner this week. 2.40 KILCREA KIM (8/1) - 5TH P Hobbs in good form this week,C/D winner. SYBARITE (14/1) - 10TH had 4 good runs this season. 3.20 WHERE THE BLOODY HELL DO YOU START ?! DENMAN,KAUTO STAR,IMPERIAL COMMANDER to name a few entered in this but Im going for LONG RUN (9/2) 1ST with MIDNIGHT CHASE (14/1) 5TH as my 2nd choice.I have the feeling at 11 years old DENMAN/KAUTO may be just a little past their best.IMPERIAL COMMANDER (10 years old)should have the measure of them.LONG RUN is 6 years old and may turn out to be the new star.MIDNIGHT CHASE is 9 years old and the prime age and has an excellent record this term (4/1/1/1/1). WHAT A BRILLIANT RACE 4.00 DANTES STORM (9/1) 5TH (TOO MANY BLUNDERS !) HERONS WELL (25/1) UR (1 FATAL ERROR) 4.40 SHOEGAZER (9/1) 9TH HOLLINS (33/1) 6TH 5.15 DE BOITRON (10/1) 4TH PEPE SIMO (14/1) 8TH Just noticed in the 2.05 race DIRAR has been backed in from 9/1 to 6/1. Good Luck Noticed a couple of very decent picks from Enzo and Ryan - well done
  12. Thursday Not been the best Cheltenham ever betting wise,but ive made a couple of shillings. 1.30 NOBLE PRINCE (5/1)FIRST fifth in this last year and gets his favoured good ground,BLAZING TEMPO (14/1)5TH would be my danger to noble prince.the trainer of sizing australia and sizing europe runs LOOSEN MY LOAD 3RD, while there are horses call MR GARDNER,MR THRILLER and MR CRACKER. 2.05 SIVOTA (7/1) 3RD looks well weighted (as is CHATREUX)and has Ruby Walsh onboard.my other pick is SON AMIX (16/1) 2ND who finished in front of sivota in a Leopardstown race though the going and weights were different for that race. 2.40 poquelin is a horse i like but 5/2 ? JY VOLE (8/1)6TH was 3rd last year so gets my vote.TARTAK (14/1)7TH won here on new years day (CAROLES LEGACY 2ND - which ran a blinder on the opening day). 3.20 as Traf says should really be between BIG BUCKS and GRAND CRUS,personally I think ASHKAZAR (40/1) A VERY POOR 12TH who again won here on new years day (beating junior and chatreux) could run into 3rd. In the other races theres only JUNIOR (6/1) FIRST IN THE 4.40 that Id have any interest in. Good luck
  14. 1.30 As ever I agree with Traf,cue card does look a good thing but the same thing was said of Dunguib 12 months ago and that flopped,I like the look of SPRINTER SACRE.(9/1)3RDjust found this on a website "Recent form is crucial to finding winners of this race, 12 of the last 14 winners had all won last time out and 10 of the last 11 had ran in the previous 45 days",the other 1 I like the look of is RECESSION PROOF (9/1).5TH 2.05 Ghizao beat Captain Chris at this course and also at Newbury and is the only course and distance winner in the race.FINNIANS RAINBOW(4/1) 2NDwasnt impressive when he beat Stagecoach Pearl but with Geraghty on board he would be the 1 id pick.AP McCoy rides ROCK NOIR (12/1)8TH possible each way claims. 2.40 BENSALEM (6/1) FIRSTwas my pick for this last year and would have surely won if he had stayed upright,hes potentially well handicapped again so would be my pick.Last years winner CHIEF DAN GEORGE is carrying 6LB more but is available at (20/1)5TH.Geraghty rides Caroles legacy which Traf has picked. 3.20 MENORAH (7/2)5TH is my pick having beaten DUNGUIB and OSCAR WHISKEY last year,PEDDLERS CROSS (9/2)2ND would be my idea of the danger,hopefully this will be the best race of the day with a very tight finish. 4.00 GARDE CHAMPETRE(9/2)2ND is quality.each way choices would be KING JOHNS CASTLE (20/1)N/R and LORD NELLERIE (25/1).10TH 4.40 SANTERA (33/1) and SILVER GYPSY (25/1)8TH AND LAST ! 5.15 OSRIC (25/1) ON BORROWED WINGS (9/1) TULLAMORE DEW (7/1)3RD,8TH AND PU Ive used Ladbrokes prices,good luck !
  15. Saturday 5/2/11 Lingfield 3.25 Mighty Clarets - each way @ about 10/1 just my pick,not a tip !!
