    I see the Elliot bandwagon turns up at Bangor today...all at half the price they would be if trained by someone else! I think the opposition is strong today and have laid all at silly prices so no real damage done if they win, but a nice profit if at least 3 lose

    On a serious point, is this saturation good for racing? Jump racing in Ireland has become quite boring with Elliot and Mullins farming the small tracks where some meetings have odds on shots in every race and the 2nd fav is 5/4! it is killing racing there, will it happen here?

    Hi hippo, you say no damage done but all winning would cost 12pts, thats a pretty bad day for me !.

    Yes Mugz, but they should all be at least double the odds...if they drift i may have a bet. Its a bookies trick, plus Ive had a sneaky acca just in case!

    515 Gonna have an ew bet against his Ayr hot pot

    I’ll go with Forsee, a Sea the Stars bought for 45k by current connections. A recent Epsom class 5 winner, should be comfortable in this company

    Forsee, 12-1, Lads, Paddy

    It was tongue in cheek guys! Never have a winner there and local trainers all seem to know the time of day (as they do anywhere of course). Stopped having a bet there 10 years ago and not had one since.Just cant read Goldie, Fife et al, but good luck to em.

    I think I may be joining you on that one hippo. The Scottish tracks are very difficult I find, so maybe betting on the big races only is the way to go.

    Must admit I don't like Ayr myself either, big fields impossible to work out. Also, I don't like Bangor or Wetherby they are the tracks I personally stay clear of.
