    Galway Festival

    I think Echoes in Rain will pay for my weeks punting on Monday evening.

    Any forumites planning to attend?

    Hewick for plate.
    Nebo ew for Ahonoora handicap Sunday.
    Saturday's Irish Field had a wonderful article on Hardboy's build up to his 1972 Galway Hurdle win.
    HMS Seahorse taking a similar route, hope he gets a penalty tonight to get in.

    Reminds me of the telephone engineer prosecuted for foul and abusive language in a public.

    “Takes us through what happened” asked his lawyer.

    “Well, sir,” he said “me and Fred were mending the wires, he was up the ladder binding them together from a pot of molten lead and I was holding the ladder. Next thing, he slipped a bit and a blob of molten lead came down and hit me on the back of the neck and I shouted out.”

    “But what did you actually shout?” asked the judge.

    “Well, your Honour” said he “all I said was: Really, Fred, you should be more careful”

    As my BF account has no funds left in it pending the results of the following are in Coltrane EW, an EW double on Sacred and Crystal Caprice (both in 1st four I break even) and Hollaway Boy 5 star bet

    I can't have a bet but if I get a return I will be backing The Shunter EW which he will no doubt be ready to put in a bold bid.


    Rory Delargy told me years ago the only way to win is to discipline yourself and it stuck with me
    I won a small fortune since October 21 85% of which I withdrew and I told her indoors do not give me the visa card back until October 22
    My Thai bank won't upload money for online gambling.

    I bet a few on here wish they could discipline themselves. Especially my good freinds Desert Orchid and Marb who are what is know in the industry as MFP's Mad Furkin Punters
    who would bet on two flies crawling up a wall
    Formely Fist of Fury

    I'll be driving down on Weds, (from Dublin) coming back on Thursday, leaving before the start of the last race.

    Anybody who needs a lift there, or back, or both let me know, more than welcome.

    You really are an unnecessarily nasty bit of work, Tanlic. Not content with revelling in your usual unsavoury bragging, you seek to stick the boot into a couple of forum stalwarts who are prepared to share their thinking with the rest of us. So what that they won’t always get it right - that’s the risk you take when you “gamble”. No one should be mocked for getting it wrong on here, by offering up their own reasoned analysis on why a horse might win a race.

    Depends on what you consider an insult Len tbh. If Mo and Marb are members of the MFP group you can sign me up anytime
