    Great stuff Diamond, much appreciated. Don't put much stock into anything from preview nights as they are 99% bluster but they can be quite entertaining and you will get the odd nugget - more often than not provided unintentionally

    Exactly why I don't watch them.

    They are hours of my life I will never get back.

    I thought the matchbox one was very good. Going to listen to it again tonight. I’m a bit out of touch at the moment (not sure why given that I have racing radio on most days) and going into the festival blind so I found it very helpful. Thanks.

    Currently sitting through the 90-minute ATR preview.

    40 minutes and counting, and they’ve covered the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, Stayers Hurdle, and have just started on the Gold Cup.

    What is the fu*cking point of this? Every cu*nt can see the form of these races; where every horse is exposed to fu*ck out its tits.

    Focus on the unexposed novices, or the plotty ones for the handicaps, and give us your ‘expert insight’ into those, you dullard cu*nts.

    A load of utter fu*cking shite, so far.

    Who has David Casey said is tearing up the gallops?
    Some people say he’s the best since Arkle and that’s certainly true when you look at what he’s done

    Paul Webber said that he heard from Willie's driver that Al Boum Photo and Concertista worked best at a recent gallop.

    Webber comes across as a decent skin in the preview, not all that interested in form or even being at the preview. Doubt he aware of any other rumours. I just put it up as how pointless they are.

    Grassy might like this

    Ruby Walsh said on Irish radio that a horse he thought had no chance but had rode him that morning and was nowgoing full circle on was that boat Ngolo
