    ref: Mahdmoon. Opinions needed please from our form wonks.

    He looked gorgeous in the paddock, ran green and once he worked it all out he really quickened away from an odds on favourite who in turn quickened away from the 3rd. I was really, really impressed. Am I over evaluating what I think in time will prove to be a very good maiden?

    You must have an incredible boring and sad life. To barely post on here, and then find it necessary to jump on here every time a certain poster is active to make your comments is more than a bit pathetic.

    Do you enjoy coming across as a childish troll?

    And for what my opinion on the flat is worth, I'd also say that was a good maiden Colm.

    Madhmoon's (9-5) official time was exactly 4 seconds slower than Pincheck (9-7) in the Desmond Stakes. As far as I can make out virtually all of that difference is due to a faster early pace in the Gr3 race, and Pincheck and co were already roughly 4 seconds up on the 2yos leaving the back straight. From the 4f marker on both races were run in a similar time.

    Four seconds is a lot, it equates in last night's conditions to around 25 lengths.

    Was slower than the fillies maiden won by a 73 rated 3yr old so doesn't say much for those behind the winner in the maiden,infact you may get those behind it going off false prices now and worth taking on..

    It would be worse if I didn't know exactly who he is. He gets tired of trolling the Betfair forum all the time.

    I don't think we'll see him again this year.

    Scottish League Cup

    Tomorrow

    Kilmarnock (at home) to beat Sevco 16/5

    Stevie Clarke is doing a terrific job at Killie and Sevco are being entirely unjustifiably bummed up by the Ibrox-facing Scottish media just as they were in the early days of the tenures of McCoist, Warburton, Caixhina and Murty. The Ibrox tribute band are a very, very ordinary lot of unwanted journeyman chancers and will do well to finish above Kilmarnock in the league. For me, Killie should be favourites for this tie but you never really know what kind of "honest mistakes" the referee and his assistants will make.

    PS

    I do miss Honest Tom and especially his Masonic Index

    a) it's a 'will win' thread and all the previous such threads have contained selections for sports other than racing

    b ) It's a fact that Rangers died in 2012. They were liquidated. A basket of assets called Sevco was bought and the corrupt SFA allowed the Continuation Lie to be born.

    c) The authorities in Scotland are corrupt. They have an anti-Celtic agenda. Am I supposed to ignore that?

    d) The media are pro-Ibrox. Unless you don't follow this kind of thing closely or are pro-Ibrox yourself you won't know this.

    There is no tribalism in my post. There is no religious element in my post. The bet is based on football opinion.

    You are free to ignore anything I post.

    Being pro Ibrox I found it pretty offensive. But if that's the sort of bile you want to put about then I suppose there's nothing I can do about it.

    PS - I don't see that there is any 'bile' in those posts. 'Bile' is a very strong word.

    The SFA are corrupt. That's been proved over and over again, and individuals have had to resign because they've been found out.

    The post is very strongly anti-SFA corruption and I will not back down on anything I've written against them.

    Any comments about the Ibrox operation are pretty mild, I'd have thought.
