"Racehorse owners board mark for wanting to use the mouth towards correctly there is that they were again, they blocked attempts to revamp the schedule this last year. And they schedule badly needed to be revamped, and they just couldn't see the wood for the trees. And they still can't. Everybody in this industry has been telling them for years there's too much racing. There's way too much racing. And that it needs to be scaled down. And it's like these people just don't want the gravy trained to derail in any way possible whatsoever. And we've talked about the gambling white paper, I was very disheartened when Greg wood was on the show on Thursday. I think we released it on Friday. And he just said, straight out, we've lost that battle of affordability checks. Like those limits are coming, they're going to be in place and they're going to be the limits that are set now. We're not going to get that moved. And it's a battle we lost. And they didn't fight hard enough in the first place. And they're not fighting hard enough now. And he's right. And it doesn't matter how much we bang the drum on that. He is right. The more I look into that, the more we have lost that battle. And I speak to a lot of people in the bedding industry who are freaking out about that. And it's going to cost a levee and absolute fortune. So if they're then looking at this and thinking, well, that is going to get hit. So we can't reduce racing because gravy train must keep flowing. Well, you've got to do something to rectify this sport. If I've got Brendan Powell junior coming on this show talking about how we desperately need a break for summer jumpers for LeBron coming on the show last year to talk about it as well. Donald McCain, his voice is concerned about a David piper's talked about it. Basically everybody in jumps racing can tell you that they need a month off. At the end of the season, and every other season in sport, no matter what it is, as soon as it's over, there's a break, except in jumps racing. Yeah, I know, keep on going. We get a certain break for the Irish jumps team. And they have a policy in place where if you haven't ridden more than 15 winners, you can't ride for those 24 days in Ireland, which is fair and helps out jockeys left right and center. But also we don't race every single day in Ireland. They're just milking this to the extreme Mark and it's deeply concerning that they don't seem to be able to recognize that putting an emphasis on quality is going to be a good thing overall, like racing TV. I'm racing TV do the very best they can and those split screens are not their fault. At the end of the day, they have to manage the fixture list as it's given to them. And I can't imagine they were too pleased about the fact that the group one lock inch card is being shared with three bloody jumps fixtures. It's just it's balmy how logic just seems to go right out the window with them.

"Well, screw you, Carla. Finishing seconds of me last week, I know he's gone and got beat at the weekend, but I just, I think let me look like bay. I think Harry with great respect, he was ridden as if it was the horse around the Hennessy, which also raced it, ready to go for his life. And let me Los down skeleton must have one eye on the national. And I was just wondering if he sent him for home like he's fully tuned up and he's just tied up and just got caught by one. Obviously one carrying a bit less weight as well. Just about Chester Williams made that point on the show just last week. He specifically made the point. He's probably going to need that race. And that's why he was going for the Chandra, which I didn't quite work out for is back to the center as well. But he was highlighting us would definitely come on for this run. So I would ignore that too. Yeah, exactly. And so I wouldn't use that as a stick to knock remastered with. That left him off mark of one four 6. I think that that was not one four 6 then. And then, yeah, then after being told that Kim, he's gone up to one 5 one. And the way the way that he dismissed her tap at that day on a track you'd think Hampton being a little sharp for him. You'd have to think so. But that looked to me like further progress is probably possible for him. And the run over hurdles you've got to think to protect his mark for this. So at 14 to one, I think there's certainly worse best you can have. And the other one that I quite like to mention is so it's not the whole time in the tip, but into our overdrive is obviously very well found in this market, though two wins at weather B over side of narrow defeat to long press saying rather than chase. He's gone up 15 pounds and probably is going to be up against it now of that. But if you fancy him, surely you have to fancy happy go lucky. He was third that day in the rehearsal trace. Not beaten too far. He gets a 8 pound pull in the weights with remastered. Now this time. And yet into overdrive, into overdrive is now 7s and happy to go lucky is 12. You obviously have to forgive they're on a cheltenham, but I think they're on a Newcastle was off back at 595 day break. And I think it was just four weeks later, was it the runner cheltenham next year about four weeks later. So there's every chance he did bounce. And I think you can easily forgive him that. And last year he was obviously second to vintage clouds in this race who would be miles ahead of his mark. I just think if you're looking at backing into overdrive at 8, you have to fancy happy go lucky at much bigger price. Yeah, I think that makes absolutely solid sense. On remastered, he hasn't won a cheltenham, which will concern some people, but there's an argument to be said that his best form comes on left handed tracks on an undulating surface. And his two this year have been right handed. Yeah, exactly. He's raised 17 times left handed one four placed 7 as opposed to 9 times running right handed, which we think he's better going left. He has one three. But only plays twice. Undulating tracks he's raced 11 times one three place three times. So look, I think it all comes alike to him, but it wouldn't be any concern to me. His Sheldon record. His form right handed, then it has to make you think, if he's gone up that way in the weight and right hand, it surely might be a little more to squeeze out now going back left hand on undulating track. Yeah, exactly. I would completely agree with that. I think it would be said he is in the Midlands national, though. Yeah, there's a possibility that they'll change it and look David piper is a great record in this race, but he also has a fantastic record in the middle of the national. So whichever one they choose to go for, it will be intriguing. I think currently, it's a cracking price here. I think he should be considerably shorter. And if this rain continues to fall, which it looks like it will, that's going to suit him. He made up a lot of ground in the last half mile. I still don't really know where he came from last year, because I was all over Jericho rock. Next thing this pesky purple filler comes knocking along. He'll stay longer than the mother in law, put on Tisch. And the yard excels with high class staying chasers. They've got a hoist in your one for Arthur, grand national, muddy thunder, a Scottish grand national. The way he worked into contention last time out in this race last year I thought was really impressive. And I thought he ran a really good race in the Hennessy. On ground that wouldn't have been ideal for him. Lucinda russes are absolutely flying. She's one with her last 5 runners. They've all won, and she's got a 32% strike rate in the last two weeks as well. I think he's favorably treated if and this is a conspiracy. If he was trained by Henry de bromhead Gordon William Mullins, there's not a hope in hell he's on a marker one four 6. Get out of it. But that's a very, very fair racing. I was actually a bit taken aback a couple of weeks ago when I was going through it. The other one I like is my big genius. For John John Neal, who it's going to be a pretty small and select team. I think this filler can go very, very close. Talented novice chaser jumps really well. I was presenting talk sport twos racing live for his last two runs at chepstow, and he jumped beautifully in both of those. You want to handicap of America of one 32, defying a 5 pound penalty, the runner up has gone on to win since and it was his accurate jumping that one of the race that day because he did have to be ridden out to complete the hat trick. I still like the way he did that though. I like the way he responded, and he never really looked like getting beaten. It just was a little bit more rigorous than the time before. Another chasers have developed a great record in this race from a time that nobody wanted to be near them about ten years ago suddenly they're flying. He's three from four over regulation fences. He hasn't run a cheltenham, but he has raised 6 times left handed one 5 of those and run 5 times and are undulating track winning three. I think he's going to make into a really smart stair and he's off a featherweight of ten stone 13 marker one 41 big genius. He'd be
