Yes I too marked that horse as I've done it before, dont know how Yidio gave him that nickname, nothing like the original "Emlyn Hughes"
Where is Yidio anyway? emailed him to see if he was taking part and to check on his well being but have had no reply!! Bit concerning.

Maybe he didnt see the national meeting as the same as cheltenham mike ?

I think with his up to date knowledge of horse racing he may well have been doing well again.

To be honest i have lost touch with it all !

My family were racing mad and i had a couple of mates i used to go to newmarket with but i havent had much involvement since 2002.

Anyway good luck tomorrow you two !

Here,s my final day selections.

1.45....Mr Big Shot.
2.25.....Black Op (hopefully On the Blindside will be favourite)
3.0.....Petit Mouchoir (fav) *
3.40.....Ibis Du Rheu.
4.20.....Sam Spinner (fav) *
5.15.....The Last Samuri
6.20.....Scheu Time.

Thank you TomTom, and BB, for participating in a bit of fun. its a pity more didnt have a go after all you dont need to know much if anything about racing, stab em with a pin if you want. :grinny:

I was looking for a horse called "CREOSOTE" in the national, as thats supposed to be good over fences. :grinny:

Many thanks for organsing it mike ! shame only a few of us took part but it was enjoyable anyway.

I was pleased with Mr Big Shot & Black Op as i picked them because one was lightly raced and obviously trained for the race it won.

& Black Op had the form from cheltenham.

Using a bit of my old racing experience from yesteryear paid off although i didnt have a bet and still have only had 2 bets all year.

They were good selections, I must admit I was tempted with Mr Bigshot, as he had only been out the once and ran unplaced so that run would have loosened him up nicely, but I think I jockey backed and went for Johnson, having said that Johnson rode a good race Thoms Patrick led all the way which surprised me, clearly an out and out stayer.

As you say shame not more took part even tomtom missed out on the last day. I did start a topic in SPURS TALK to see if that would make people look, but as of last night only a few views and no comments, it doea appear that on here no one has any other interest in life other than football!! :rolleyes:

I feel there should be, Glorious is months away. The guineas and Derby/oaks will be up sooner.

How about you stretch one out and do a comp for the classics ? Guineas, Derby, oaks and erm......the one everyone forgets :niceone:
