  1. Re: Epsom 5th June - DERBY DAY Ok this is a bit generic and far from enlightening, but I had to do a "pinstickers' guide" elsewhere so thought I'd post it. I bet one or two comments end up making me red-faced! Al Zir Easy winner of first two juvenile starts before losing his unbeaten tag when 3rd to the classy St Nicholas Abbey and Elusive Pimpernel in the Racing Post Trophy (Coordinated Cut well beaten). Adequate seasonal reappearance in this year's 2000 Guineas when 9th after a slow start (Buzzword behind). My ante-post pick last week at 33/1 and should go well if staying the trip. The
  2. Re: Pick Your Stable Challenge My subs are Ingleby Lady for Jonny Mudball Red Cadeaux for Penitent Santefisio for Eolith Choreography for Lastroseofsummer Jonny Mudball for New Leyf I realise people may have forgotten about this so will allow subs up to midnight Sunday. Up to five allowed, and they count from minute posted. Good luck all. :ok
  3. Re: Hello All Many, many thanks to all your kind words. Definitely missed the place and everyone here! Will get the Derby out the way and post a proper comeback. :ok
  4. Been a good six weeks or so since I've been on PL, numerous reasons the first being health issues. Bascially I've had to cut down work and/or hours spent online. Now in the past, as soon as I got a spare half hour in between studying or races I'd be on PL. Thesedays I've had to take regular complete breaks, as in log-off from the laptop completely. So unfortunately I just haven't had the time to come on, I cannot give up studying time obviously. My blog has also suffered with regards to updates. Thankfully health issues are sorting themselves out, it's not as serious as once thought.
  5. Re: Pick Your Stable Challenge Hello all, just a quick post, will be back later to clear everything up. What can I say, many thanks to BH for helping out with this thread. Much appreciated. :notworthy I have all the teams in other documents so have been keeping on top of things - will do updates when I can. I will offer the sub-rule. Up to five as stated (like-for-like) and you will have until now to Derby Day to make them. They will come into play the minute you post them.
  6. Re: Season Finale (Sold Out & Off and Running)-FINISHED Sorry for the delays, many reasons. I'm not online hardly at all at the moment. This will be finished around midnight today. With regards to the remaining stars stuff. Woodie's will be in Natwest now I have your full name tomorrow morning. Will do a full post asap. Next port of call will be sorting out the Heads Up League. Thursday or Friday.
  7. Re: Grand National Favourites Best story is simply the best race. The Australian-trained Crisp, the two-mile champion chaser and carrying a massive weight treated the Aintree fences with a contempt not seen prior or since. He had a seemingly unassailable lead but under Richard Pitman's buffoon-like urgings he was cruely picked up by a horse called Red Rum (who was receiving 23lbs). Not sure if the form worked out. I've backed the 1st and 2nd on four occasions and although Lord Gyllene was one of my most enjoyable winners I'd have to say that 2001 is my personal highlight. I had a chunk on
  8. Re: R Thornton needs sacking Absolutely, but more so if he/she recognises an under-rated trainer or horse.
  9. Re: Paddock watching Nice thread mate :ok] Haggas was at Kempton and not at Donny for the good thing in the Lincoln? I'm very surprised to hear that.
  10. Re: PL Heads-Up League - Outstanding Games (Use This Thread Only)Up to Game 15 I thought we'd be on Season 3 by now. When thinking this up I didn't take into consideration the fact that people dip in and out of forums, gambling and poker. It's understandable. We have lost a few players and that is problematic. Also Uber hasn't been on for a couple of months and he is one of the leaders. I think it's best we do a vote. All those involved should answer. Shall we call it a day? I will refund entries obviously. If the vote is no then I will sort out all the NR's and come back
  11. Re: Season Finale (Sold Out & Off and Running)-FINISHED I really don't want it to sound like I am ungrateful or believe that no one is entitled to enquire. Without doubt I am and of course you are entitled to. However it was the manor of certain posts that offended me. There were better ways to go about it in my opinion. I was hoping that there was a little more trust on PL but perhaps with some gamblers there is none, for whatever reasons. Of course there is always the risk of reading things wrong on fourms so perhaps I read into it too much. :ok Anyway, this wasn't a case of
  12. Re: Doncaster 28th March Yeah Regen into 3/1. CD out to 8.6 on Betfair. The market and his run tells us he needed the outing. That is the problem with early-season races, just something we have to take. Although I find it more common in Class4 and lower. With races like the Lincoln and other decent handicaps the runners are usually straight for reappearace. 3 out the first 4 home did come from way off the pace, however there was just the small issue of me picking the wrong ones!

  15. Re: the start of the flat/lincoln handicap Yeah that doesn't surprise me, Jim McGrath will always say pace is key - he is after all the only one on the team to have made a living at gambling. It's always the Timeform line, they very rarely suggest draw bias is anything other than that. I agree, bar Chester and certain other places. At Royal Ascot this year we will see a race where the 1-2-3-4-5-6 will be drawn low or high, a furore will follow about track bias, then the next day the opposite side will win a handicap. You heard it here first. :D
