    Jokes, old or new

    The people of this country voted to leave the European Union, and whatever their politics, every Member of Parliament should be supporting her, not making life more difficult. I'll give you an old joke, David Cameron, and now he wants to get back 'in' after resigning as PM.

    I did know you go with times, but it's interesting you do your own calculation. I have never been one to follow times, and believe a horse can only go as fast as the race is run. Example, if Samcro had gone out faster, my belief, Buveur D would have also kept pace, giving him a better time figure. Summerville Boy's time in the Supreme Novice at Cheltenham last year was rated comparative to Beveur D's in the Champion by the experts on tv and he was certainly put in his place in the FF'th. Isn't that the joy of horse racing. I will have a look at Saldier, sorry my memory on his form is not very good. I will say though, you can never discount a Mullins horse, so good luck.

    Buveur D'Air was very impressive, and looks almost unbeatable now for the Champion Hurdle. I was disappointed with Summerville Boy, maybe there is some improvement in him since it was his first run of the season. Although I previously stated I would not have a bet, I did get an offer of 7/4 Buveur D which was too good to turn down.

    Couldn't you just wait until the 27th before boxing the tree up again, parcelmonkey?

    Looks a very interesting race, although I will be watching rather than betting. It would be good if Samcro runs, he needs softer ground, especially after his disappointing seasonal debut.

    Horse Racing

    So as not to spoil NoSmokingMan's Cheltenham thread I thought we might as well just have a general thread. Any strong fancies/good wins/near misses are of interest although not sure about losses. I'll start off, have had a small bet with Bet365 on Fortia @ 14/1 in the 3.55 Chepstow. It a 4/1 feature race and should you manage to back the winner you get a free bet on their next feature race. They have two feature races per day except when ITV are showing when all those races have the 4/1 offer.

    She had an unsatisfactory blood test Bazzer, did you back her as well?

    We agree on Summerville Boy. Before reading your last paragraph 14/1 looked good e/w value to me, although I won't be taking the price just yet. The last ante-post bet I had was on Lah Ti Dar for the Oaks.

    I watched the race with interest yesterday, and although Sceau Royal won well, if Altior turns up in anything like his Champion Chase form, my money would be on Altior. You must have been disappointed with Brain Power, although it was his first run of the season. I do wish you well with your bets since I don't back ante-post.
