There was little or comment today from the RUK presenters on the ride Kid Cassidy got from Jeremiah McGrath. I have several problems with this good young jockey's handling of the McManus owned and Henderson trained animal.I will be blogging later on the subject and wondered how you guys felt. I am not blaming the young jockey by the way.

It's getting blatant now and hard to know when McManus horses are off, the stewards won't dare haul him in and seems untouchable It's becoming embarrassing. No one on either racing channel has the balls to highlight these 'efforts' either in case they get thrown off the gravy train. ATR is especially bad for moving quickly on

Re: Kid Cassidy I backed the animal despite reservations about its 'problems' as I thought the price was worth the risk. I feel that he tried to get it to settle and jump as in that ground and with top weight it would have had no chance at all if it'd gone off hard or pulled hard. In the end it jumped poorly imo, out to the right a few times and may have jumped better if allowed to stride on. It did make good ground in the straight but the race was as good as over by then. So, it was imo ridden to not take to much out of it as there's a long season ahead (which is sensible) but that it'd have still won had it been good enough. The outcome was always possible given the conditions and the price reflected that
