That's why it's a mugs game Jimmy. I've heard many times of that happening. With Cheltenham though, if the ground is soggy a donkey from Blackpool beach could win a race. I do have a bet now and then but I really prefer the flat racing.
I find jump racing more exciting and unpredictable, flat racing they belt off and quickly finish. Used to love a day out at Newton Abbott but they sold the car park off and you now have to go a long way down a very narrow lane to park in the middle of the course
What a day, Bryony Frost winning the big race - women jockeys are here to stay no matter what the TV male commentators think. Her father, Jimmy Frost was a successful jockey and I always used to back him at Newton Abbott
Then the blind owner, Andrew Gemmell who everybody speaks well of winning his race
I did a lucky 15 today and had three winners and a second. One of my winners was frodon and the two Barry Geraghty horses. I always do a £1 e/w roll up so the place accumulator will go towards my holiday spends.
