"But that was last week, obviously, after the horse was sold to the new connections. And our things change, obviously, but I did hear that he and actually, mister McManus is very good at supporting isn't he? I know he obviously has his top people, but he's very good at supporting younger younger jockeys. Yeah, he is. And he's very fair that way. And look, amateurs have won this race. Robbie McNamara. Katie Walsh, it's an insult to goal. Jamie card and Patrick mullens amateurs. But ruby Walsh, Tom scooter Moore, Paul townend, Rachel blackmore, as professionals, like amateurs do win this race. Just depends on experience, and it's a lot of pressure on the young that. It's a lot of pressure on them. And you have to bear that in mind when you're back in them. Like, he looks a machine and he might just be way too classy and trash everything. I think the nature of the race, the way it'll pan out, the going, the stiff uphill climb, all plays into factor file strength, and he would be the one I would go with. With definitely an easy way to pick on queen's gamble, but factor file is the pick for me. Final selections in the bumper, then pull a fillet. Loving that. Brief word on better days ahead. I was very keen on him. But I haven't gone through the pedigree, jeez, that mayor has thrown out a lot of forces and they don't really do a whole lot. None of them have done it a graded level. One of them won 48 grand for Jon Jones. I think he costs like 200 K? Yeah, 145,000. They flatter. Could be that he's the different one. I wonder about the fact that Gordon Elliot is sending so many runners to this race. What does that say about his bumper crop? Because when he's won it, it's been with the only horse. He's just had the one runner. So fauna was his only representative for G one and violin, which is only representative. That used to be a thing with Willie Mullins. If he came up mob handed, forget him. If he went with one horse like champagne fever, then you'd be all over him, but maybe that's just a changing nature of the game because Gordon and Willie have so much stuck at their disposal and so much firepower that it's just getting stronger, but it is intriguing that he's only two runners came with just one runner in the race. That would worry me. So Lizzie, final section for you. I think I'm going to go with queen's gamble. Yeah, stick with her. 20s. 20s queens gamble. And factor file for me who tens of disappeared. The 11s have disappeared 7 to one as we record with bed duck, even the 8 to one just vanished. I promise you I did not vacuum. Yet, that is, yeah, right. You have got a free bet from the good folks at beta. You could do a ten pound trixie or a four pound Yankee. Trixie is three horses, Yankee is four horses. And all winnings, it's win only and all winnings go directly to the Irish injured jockeys fund. Ben, you swung for the fences on day one, and you went for other days. What are you gonna do for day two? Won't be swinging quite as well, but still, it's for sure. So you know, I'm not gonna play it safe. And again, yes, I'm going for other days. You know, just why change. So I do have one Queen mother, Edward stone, mayor's novice, ashur diamond, Albert Bartlett, sandor clayne, gold cup, brave man's game. Don't say that too loudly because you have the president of the gallop on the shop fan club here in Lizzy Kelly and I'm vice president. But I'm going to start. Yeah. Laser can down Lizzie. Lizzie put that knife down. It's just an opinion. We're all friends here. All right, we're all friends here. He's not saying that he's rubbish. He's just going for the value. Lizzie, what is your three or four horses for the backpack charity best? So I've done a bit of a mix, I've got rare edition in the supreme. I've got where is it? Oh yes, west by boa. In the mayor's hurdle. What in the name of God is going on? Yeah. I've got

"I can guarantee you that we will be talking about the whip rules with the one and only lorcan Williams. Who has spoken to for the final forlong and talk sport this morning and he spoke openly and eloquently about them. So you'll get to hear from him and especially edition of the final fertile podcast tomorrow along with Tom scooter Moore who will reflect on his glorious career, that special comes out tomorrow. On the final front of podcast, but right here, right now, with time forms Mark Milligan, it is a whip chat free zone, winners only Mark. We'll take the whip out of it otherwise. We'll basically be here all night. Well, we had a long discussion about this prior to coming on air, didn't we? And I think it's fair to say we could talk for hours with our own views on it, but I'll leave that for people who are more informed than myself and I'll just do what I'm paid to do and try and pick a few winners, I think. More informed than yourself. You're literally racing experts. There are very few people who are more informed on the subject than you are, but it's just my brain's going to implode. And I think I literally am going to get angry. I'm going to be like that panda bear that I use as the GIF quite a bit who just grabs the computer. It throws it on the ground. Attacks some villain in office. That's how enraging it is. So let's become and let's be excited about the weekend's action. Where we begin with the Adonis juvenile hurdle, betta are going two to one about script writer. It could be big. Nose red, I was under the impression he'd had a breathing operation. But it's not on the page here, so unless the racing posts are going to have dated by the time the weekend comes around, or maybe I'm dealing in full fake news and false information. But nose rest, trying to bounce back after being thumped by both lassie mouth and blood destiny. No shame in that to be fair. With Darryl Jacob on board and Daryl did say on the final throwing a few weeks ago that he was going back over to Ireland after the Dublin racing festival to ride specifically a piece of work on nursery. He didn't say he was going to Willie Mullins afterwards for Al fabiola. It was only at Joseph's. And here the horse is rocking up at kempton. That is significant. Rare Middleton for Paul Nichols and Harry cobden, a four to one shot, same price for nusrat, perseus way for Gary and Jamie Moore is a 7 to one shot. Take it away, Mark, who's gonna win? Yeah, well, here at time form, we get notifications from weatherbys at declaration time about Windows. So just to clear it up, get we've had nothing from them about nusrat. In this particular race. So we can only assume we can only assume he hasn't had a wind up. Fake news, Kennedy. You're putting out false narratives and fake news there, Kennedy. Nothing new there.

"But he is a good artist. I just don't think I don't think the ground will serve him. And I wouldn't be wanting to Harry cubs better right there. I don't think. And Harry, Harry, special is going to come out. He's best right there. Yeah, that Harry Potter special is going to come out in the next couple of days. So you'll get to hear him talk more about stage star there. Of course he had an incident with the stewards than afterwards with the bloody whip rules, which will briefly talk about towards the end. Rock my way wins for Sid Jose with Tom scooter more on board. Winning the ballymore novices hurdle, he is a very, very interesting horse. He ran in the point to point that it's for me one. It's for me is now a very short priced favorite for the champion bumper. He finished third that day. He's ultimate has gone to Gordon, and I think three of the other horses have gone to Willie. From that race, he then went his point to point very impressively. And crucially, he's endorsing that we've all been caught for him. He ran a massive race at a huge price behind we've all been caught on debut on New Year's Day at cheltenham. We've all been caught as one of only two British horses coming over for the Dublin racing festival. And he what prices we've all been caught for the potential race. Very. Well, the winner of the race is 20 20s for the third round. You see, for the potato race, which I loved where you give it its full title. Has to be given the property. So let me see, go and talk about entities as it will never say. You pass it, and then you cut away two years. Blah, blah, blah. But I like we've all been caught an awful lot. And I don't want to take anything away from it. I'm sorry. That's huge. I rate this, we've all been caught very, very highly. He has formed with Hermes Allen. He was third to him very eye catching, and then he's come out in one on New Year's Day and rock my way is now endorsed that form as well. I like this rock my way offensive for the weekend, put them up on the show on Friday morning. I think he's a big, big player in terms of spring festivals for later and he's going to be very interesting now this chaser. But I can't quite deviate away from we've all been caught. I'm getting a little bit suckered up in this in this form now. That 12 to one is big. It's one of the few antibodies prices that properly interest to me and I would expect them to be considerably shorter after the DRS. Barry, what did you make of it? Yeah, again, Dennis is going to slide me a note on one of these races where a lot of modern detention torn over home. But after Lion, I like the way he is for the last hundred years as opposed and he ran out of good winner in the end of a pamphlet. He was a decent sort. Is it enough to win any of the big race at the first one? No. Only a 5 year old only having a second start for that stable. I didn't know an awful lot of go to trainer and the owner see it Jose, but I'd say he might be a higher amount playing horses for

"It's no respect. I think he has his last three runs. Obviously he was beaten by tamaris on that on that first start overhead was met so back in November. But since then, he's been very, very good and I've been very impressed with him. Even at ludlow last time out, I think everyone's sided with that western sem far from the Charlie longs and team, I think people thought that's the horse to be following this season and he's won since as well. That so far. So yeah, I think pembroke, he's also got a nice weight pull, I think, from the second, so I think pembroke has everything in his favor. I like that. I like the confidence. I will be taking you on, but I'm not going to say who yet, because here comes Tanya Stevenson to either back you up or take you on, don't you? No, I'm going to back Lucy up. I think this pembroke is progressing the right way and winning by further and further and now the declaration is the fact that now we'll go to China. We'll go in a graded race and you just you just feel that after the ludlow victory that that's what pembroke deserved, looking at some of the other runners, I'm intrigued why doctor Brown bear has arrived here in this contest and I would be keeping a very close eye on doctor Brown bear. He tried in juvenile hurdles last season as well. It was, and I was on each way in the boodles last season. And it's sort of maybe set up and take notes. So it's not so much for tomorrow, but there is obviously a method for why doctor brown bear is there. And I will just probably have a sentimental each way selection on doctor Brown bear always, as you said, highly tried and I fell for it last year, but it's not without, he's not without ability. He gets into the frames and get into the race and maybe he's only had one race since children last year as well. So he's only run twice for Martin brussel. Yeah. This is an intriguing horse. So watch out for him, but my selection is pembroke. Martin brazel, in the last 5 years, has only sent 9 horses to the UK. Yeah. Yes, he's bringing this fellow over for cheltenham trials day. Exactly. Exactly. That's made me really take note because. He's a horse with plenty of ability. Whether this grade two is a bit too high, we'll see. 25 to one, don't say you weren't warned. And then he proceeds to go and tip something else. I like rock my way. He was third in a point to point before behind it's for me who absolutely bolted up on bumper debut for William Mullins, that's when he was trained by Stuart Crawford. The second horse has gone to Gordon Elias and is highly regarded. The Rock my way was third. He's gone to Sid hoier. Since then he bolted up in an Irish point to point was sold from 90 grand and a New Year's Day with no experience at a massive price. Gave we've all been caught a right fright. And I think he should be considerably shorter than the 7 to one and I'm delighted he's not, and it's almost certainly a smaller trainer syndrome that they're just ignoring the smaller trainers. We'll ignore him. He's a beautifully bred horse by get away out of an Old Vic mayor. That point to point form when he was beaten behind it for me, that's red hot. And there's a number of forces from that race in behind that have gone to Willie Mullins as well. And a couple of forces in behind have also come out in one sense, not only the winner it's for me, but the key to this is that we've all been caught form because I rate him very, very highly. There's only two horses from Britain entered for the Dublin racing festival. So royal, and we've all been caught. And the more I think about that, I was the more I'm very, very sweet on him for the potential race. So the 7 to one of our rock my way is that's what we call it Tony. We can't call it anything else, but the potato rays on the final for the podcast. So rock my way at 7 to one is just it's too big and I hope he's going to have the class to get the job done. Tom scooter Moore retains the right. So I'm pretty bullish about him. Very briefly, a dunk aster at the sky bed handicap chase gala, 11 to four T for free 11 to two captain Nord, 6 to one, and mister coffee 8 to one. Lucy, who do you like? Yeah, got a little for me. I'm just going to get up the race in front of me. Emmett. Let's go to town. Tanya Stevenson, three 15 Duncan. You're going for you're going for well, I mean, you can't grab the former talk, and it was just an awesome victory at your home. And a well deserved one as well. Captain or just a heads up to everyone was a well held third in the contest last year. I'm sure Kerry Lee wants to atone for storm control last year, where she was well clear with storm control and was picked up by winter avenue. She runs the machine, he ran brilliantly at Giotto behind midnight river came into the sort of actually into the race all too late. I know the pair of you weren't going for galore. I'm gonna give a shout out, although it's got enough way to the old boy cloth cap. This is a race where sometimes those with the utmost experience come through and thrive. Brian Hughes writes this for John Joe and Neil. I felt it was an excellent run. Excellent run in the beaches. You didn't see cloth cap in the beaches until all too late, which was great before that. It was a good run. As well. When behind dingo dollar, cloth cap, I think he's coming back to a little bit of his form and I see that might have been proving popular a long way out in the betting here. For this guy a bit chase. I'll go for him, cloth cap. I understand galore, I'm going to somehow have to try and beat that, but cloth cap could come into this race with a viable chance. He's very interesting. I like galore like Lucy. He wasn't foot perfect over expenses, but the step up to three miles, a chat room, but still managed to overcome the fact that he wasn't exactly fluent here and there, but the step up to three miles, I think, is going to be the key to him. He's completely unexposed over that distance. It should bring out a bit more improvement in him. And if he does make the errors that he made a chart, then it'll give him more time to recover from that. Although I wouldn't want to see him making those mistakes again, hopefully he'll overcome that. But I think he's a very smart prospect and I'm definitely with him. Lucy, what is your reason for being with galore? Yeah.

"I made. Goodbye. I thought that was a really decent first run in this country at Newcastle last time. It was the run of a horse to me who's probably got much more to come. I think a mark of a 110 is probably pretty fair on what he achieved there. So I didn't have a really strong opinion, but every week, the mold was going to be the one for me in here. Darn for you. No, no, no view. I just had a quick look. It looks like one of those trappy ones, so I'll be sitting on the fence, so you can that would be it.

Very impressive winner in a point to point. And is now two from two over hurdles, looks up right one for David piper in the stable tour. He sounds pretty bullish about him. Four to one shot outlaw Peter is 15 to 8 for Paul Nichols, who would have a pretty decent line on we've all been caught. I'm told, on the point to point man, if things go to plan with this horse, he will basically be a leading light for the Tristan Davis camp for seasons to come. So hopefully it'll all does go to plan. He's a 6 to four shot and full disclosure when I was hosting talks for racing live early on today with Patti asphalt. This was his horse for the weekend. Very impressed with his run last time out. Hermes Allen won that for Paul Nichols and he was really impressed by how he stayed on that day and thinks that this is the race that's going to bring out the best in them and that he's the one to be with.

"I'm fascinated by napper's hill and I'm a huge fan, as long-term listeners will know. But Napa still is staying over hurdles. Is something that's very intriguing to me. And we talked about them. We were pretty bullish about them. We encounter you and I Mark and sure enough he got the job done there for Paul Nichols and Harry cobden and look, this is a horse who could be novice chasing and doing very well in that sphere for Paul Nichols. And yet he's decided, now I'm going to stay hurdling with him. And we're going to get to see what he can do against a proper champion hurdle contender in epitaph. At the weekend. So I'm kind of drawn to him at the prices as much as I love epitaph 6 to four. Doesn't do a whole lot for me the fours with bed talking about Napa silda. That does intrigue me. What's your overall take on the race? Sorry to put the mockers on it, but I'm with Napa still as well. I thought I didn't really want to be with either of or I like to move it at the prices, but for all that they've got the best form. Napa's hill at four to one, I think is a knocking bit. We just look at his last four performances. He had a bit of a stuttering start, didn't he and handicaps over hurdles, but his last four performances. He certainly in ratings terms. He ran to a 125 at newt nabbit. If then improves to a 137 at sundown, a 145 at chepstow and a 152 at wing canton last time. This is a horse who is finding a chunk of improvement on every start now. He's only a 6 year old. He's going the right way that elite to win at wing camps and last time. The main feature of that was how well he jumped. He jumped like a horse who belongs with the top two mile hurdles to me. He was very, very slick and fast at his hurdles. And I think he can take the next step up the ladder here. I agree with you. He's rated one 5 three, which is only a pound of epitaph who obviously gets 7 pounds from everything, which is dangerous but he's young, he's improving and that was super impressive at wing canton. Super impressive. And there was plenty left in the tank that day as well. So I would not for sale. And the four to one is the thing that really sells it to me. If doncaster does go ahead and we don't know if it will or not, there'll be the handicap chase at two mile three at two 40. Again, live on ITV. Beta are four to one, about the mod and mansion. Getaway love, a 6 to one shot for Lizzie Finland and Ross Chapman would probably be the direction I'd be going in Mark for you. Yeah, I didn't have a really strong opinion, but are we pronounced this correctly? Every week them all? Or who knows? That sounds an awful lot better than the attempt I made. Goodbye. I thought that was a really decent first run in this country at Newcastle last time. It was the run of a horse to me who's probably got much more to come. I think a mark of a 110 is probably pretty fair on what he achieved there. So I didn't have a really strong opinion, but every week, the mold was going to be the one for me in here. Darn for you.

"A long look at three under through 5 current rambler. You can make cases for plenty of them and I hopefully all 16 stay in for the purposes, but I do like lami Los in here and he'll be my selection albeit tentatively with a nod to any number of three, four, 5 who could put it up to him. I think David pipe has this race by the short and curlies again. The question is which of the two do you go for? And I'm going to say you should go for Jericho rock. Scooter Morris chosen him, David noonan was on board remastered at aintree, but that was in handicap hurdle race. I'm sure it was a big decision for Tom to decide who to go with. And it's significant that he's chosen Jericho rock. When I spoke to David for the stable tour, he was very bullish about Jericho rock this season. Like when we were talking about what they were going to do with them. This was the first target mentioned. And he was essentially saying, not essentially, he basically said, but he'd be disappointed if they're going back to the ultima. And he shouldn't be anywhere near the mark that he is now. And sounded reasonably bullish about this. Now he was disappointing in entry. No getting away from that. But if you're going to run him over hurdles, you're clearly getting him ready. Crucially, second run after a wind up as well. And he didn't win over fences, but he was never out of the first three. And that run against caric rambler, who he's now better off with. A cheltenham was huge. That was a huge performance. And yeah, I'm still feeling the effects of that because I was on them. I'm so to my eyeballs out of that day, but he ran a blinder. Did me very proud. There's a big race in this fella. And David is in good form, not as in red hot form as he was a couple of weeks ago, like that time when remastered had won and there was a few others that come out under seasonal debuts and one as well. It just seems as though anything he could run was winning. But he had a double today. The art is in really good form. And when they target a big race, it's not often they get it wrong. So I'm reasonably bullish about Jericho rock here. As bullish as he can be about a horse who hasn't yet won yet over fences. I love the fact that scuba more sticking with them. I wouldn't be put off by remastered at all. And I think I have to if it's splitting stakes, it's probably 60 40 percentage wise in favor of Jericho rock and then 40% goes on remastered with the reverse forecast on both. And the reason for that is he had this race one last year. It was way too far out when he fell, who knows, but he was cruising. Absolutely cruising. And I think the official line is he at every chance when falling for it. That was a brutal fall. That was a mother and father of a fall. We were talking about it today on talk sport, and I did think he was a goner. And thankfully he got up, and it's not that surprising that on his next three starts, he was bitterly disappointing. He probably was just probably just had the confidence knocked out of him. That was really impressive at entry the other day. Very impressive. Reverting back to hurdles and winning his impressively as he did. He'll come on for that. And if he's able to replicate what he did last year, then he's going to be very, very close. So I don't think he should be 7s. I think Jericho rock should be 7s. I would prefer a bigger price about remastered. And I wonder if this market is going to course correct with Tom scooter more on Jericho rock. But I'm pretty bullish about Jericho rock. I can't knock him out of the first 5 with the malice. I think he's got a massive each way chance and he therefore he is the scumbag each way nap of the weekend. But you'd have to have something, you'd have to save something on remastered. Even if it's just covering your steak with Jericho rock. In case he was managed to pop up and run a big race. And he certainly can. He can place at least, but I think this race suits up, sets up perfectly for Jericho rock to break his dock over fences. And when it comes to cheltenham then, hopefully, the national home chase will be more his bag as opposed to going back for the ultimate. So Jericho rock for me. I absolutely seen that. Look, he didn't win a fences last year, did he? But he faced for a novice. He faced some really tough company last year, didn't he?

But that comes with a big asterisk beside teddy blues name. And this brings us to the feature race of the day for all that we're very excited to see constitutional back the big race is the Hennessy.

And become a two corporate. It's because of the new sponsor kicking in next week. I'm becoming way too corporate. A la Milos for the skeletons, 13 to two core rambler, a 7 to one shot for the cinder Russell and Derek Fox. David pipes remastered who was so unlucky. He had this race by the balls last year. Came down. I'm convinced you would have back for more second run after a wind up. Apparently that's a good thing. But good to hear that Amy is a big fan of that. And he's a 7 to one shot. And shorter than his stable companion, who Tom scooter Morris chosen, is Jericho rock an 8 to one shot and well supported from tens this morning with Tom choosing to ride him. Shorter again is Adrian Haskins about 300 through 5 who was first time cheek pieces for the master of this race Paul Nichols, Oscar elite goes for Harry cobden, who has spoke to yesterday for talk sport that is available on the podcast final follow podcast feed as well. If you want to listen to it, he has some very interesting things to say. And writing him for Joe tissue at 17 to two shot fiddler on the roof for Joe is also a 9 to one shot, and then we got our power for Sam Thomas, who was really good at ask it. We talked about him after that with a view to this race and he's currently in 11 to one shot. This is a proper renewal of the Hennessy. It's a proper Saturday handicap to get excited about 16 runners. Each way betting 50 odds, 5 places, there's a lot to be excited about here. Who are you citing what Mark Milligan? Oh, there is a lot to be excited. And I'm going to show my age. Do you know the first Tennessee winner I remember watching? Go on. Borough hill at 1984. The John Frank. I was too.

I mean, he was a master talk and horse wasn't he probably one of the biggest talk on our goal into this year's festival and he's still only 5 very, very low knowledge statement.

It was a little bit disappointing, obviously, wasn't it that it looked like we were saying he was going to maybe run all 6 in the end, he didn't push, it didn't, it didn't really get your post race and nonetheless he got the job done. I'm sure they'll go onwards from here. Yeah, I mean, he's a very likely race choice. He's only had 5 starts for Willie mons. 6 in his life from his old days back in France. And the handicap really had an impossible task on his hand. Because he'd only had two runs, one of them had fallen. And he was 7s on, literally. For his win. So my fear with him was that because he was becoming such a short prize, was this could be saint Roy all over again, like a stylish winner of the county hurdle, the world is his oyster kind of thing. And he just doesn't quite get there. It's a big difference between what you're doing in handicaps to going into grade one company. Well, I was very pleased with that. I thought that was a really likeable performance. As Willie said afterwards, he's jumping would need to improve, for sure, and he's going to work on that. I'm not falling over myself to back him, but I wouldn't want to let him. No, no. No, I think that's a fair share. I was just one of them racers on the day where it's not going to live long in the memory. But he still continues to win. And if he can win with his trainer saying that he's got a hurt or better and it was an okay performance. I think we're probably not doing so bad. Yeah, exactly. And well done again to uni bet for naming the race in honor of analog studio. Michael rafferty, who passed away, I thought that was a really nice touch. So well done to them for doing that. And well done to William Wallace. On a successful completion of woolly moms being going a one two three again, that's not the first time he's done that and the more younger hurdle. Here's another slice of humble pie for me. As the show been structured deliberately this way to just make me eat all the humble pie at the start, everything that I got wrong. Fontaine cologne was a confident tip from Mark Mulligan, goes and wins at hey Doc. I was quite nervous about venetia Williams stable form. That was her first winner of the season, and she's had another winner since who will talk about a little bit later on because they're very impressed by the UK debut from her runner at Exeter on Sunday. But fun tank challenge was terrific. Tom scooter more was excellent on them. I don't know why it took so long for the photo finish to be announced. I thought it was pretty clear that fontan collage had won, but what did you make of venetia Williams? First winner of the season in the handicap chase said hey Doc, at three 35 on Saturday. Yeah, first winner, I think since the end of April, and it wasn't. I mean, look, we don't want even a source cheered with an issue as an operator to the summer. It's just how she does things. But I was in the fontan cologne's camp. I've got to say because I looked through a numbers and I just found it interesting because although she wasn't getting one over the line as regards a winner in the past 14 years, 8 or 9 of them had hit the frame. And a few of them are very well backed. So it did appear that the bulk of them were clear to need their comeback run, but they were still actually running okay. And hitting the frame and so yeah, I was delighted to see fontaine kilometers managed to get the job done. And I was in agreement with you. As soon as it went past the line, I wasn't really sure what the photo delay was all about. But it really was strange. There's no doubt. What are they trying to convince themselves that venetia had actually had a winner? Was it more about the photograph? This can't be rice. It's April. Are we sure? Yeah. We're looking at the stats and forgotten over the call. But yeah, it was a funny one. But I thought the big breakaway. He was the danger because he was always maybe entitled to come back and run a screamer here as a so many of George's ads are due. In the comeback runs this time. There were miles there of another horse which I was shifted. It's actually back to each way because he's as slow as a wet week is rapper. But he keeps going. And unfortunately, he just got squeezed out of it. Turning out of the back straight and his riders had to take his medicine and sit and so forth. And I think without death, he finished a very close third. He wouldn't have beaten the first two, but so yeah, all around, there was no humble pie for me here. Because I backed the back the winner and a bit of each way at that prices and wrapper. Nicely done patty asphalt.

"Brinkley, and Tom scooter Moore was shocked up on him yesterday. And he was a very good winner of a February last year at Exeter, found cheltenham just a little bit too steep. He previously won at wing canton prior to that, the prime month. So he was on a bit of a roll. Got back to winning ways then in a novice chase. On his seasonal debut last year, and then it just kind of derailed a little bit. They took him to chepstow on during the Christmas meeting. He was very well fancy there, things didn't quite work out from the then brought him back over hurdles at chepstow and he's jumping was gone to part completely. But if you can go back to those two previous runs, those two previous wins in January and February of last year. He was, he was rolling. He'd been very impressive winner of his novice hurdle. He's always been held in high regard. He was quietly fancied for cheltenham last year. And it's just been a matter of time of bringing him back and David's horses never lack for fitness. So 14 to one about Brinkley in a race that the stable have done very well in with the stable and tremendous form. He took this with main fact two years ago. Jeffrey chambon countless others as well have managed to get this form crew. I think Brinkley in those silks is the bet and 14s is very. Can we get bigger than that? Is it 14s and that's it? Or 14 is the best price? I would take 14 sprinkles but I absolutely take your point with run for Oscar. Ask it two 40. Carl hurdle worth a whole lot of money and we get the most exciting horse in training over jumps constitutional. He's devastating the impressive and let's see. Let's see how things go. So Nick Anderson wanted rain and it's coming, maybe not enough. Hopefully it is. He's already unleash John Bond, who was very impressive over fences. We'll talk about that on Monday. And we're going to get C constitutional comeback. Against some interesting opposition. Brun up a storm for Paul Ferguson is going to be a big runner here. So it's four zone about constitutional 11 to two brewing up a storm who came a cropper on his comeback, but we know he's an awful lot better than that. Goshen reverts to hurdles. Surprising, no one. And he would be very much a threat here if he behaves himself after that, the others have got absolutely no chance. What do you want to see from constitutional? Because most people are going to look at this race and just think, well, he's going to absolutely blitz them. It's a small field. Ground is Nikki's been sending out the smoke warnings and spokes a little about the going. What do you want to see from him? I think I want to see him dispatch this field. With the minimum of fus on his return to be honest, he's rated a 170 on official ratings. That puts him 13 pounds ahead of goshen, who we get three pounds from, I think, if he's going to be a genuine champion hurdle contender, then I would, I would want to see him win this impressively. There's some interesting comments coming out of the Henderson earlier this week, where Nikki Henderson said he wanted Michael Buckley to send him a couple of pacemakers because nothing that could keep up with constitution ill. He said something to the effect of he did an extraordinary piece of work or something along those lines. There's certainly, they've not been shy in coming forward, have they about what they think of him and how he's working. I think goshen will provide an interesting test for him going back over hurdles. He just, I think the kindest thing you can say about is Chase debut is that he looked all right for the first two fences. Then he just kind of got progressively worse. To be fair, he did. He'd be pinged those first two and then it just went horribly wrong. He just seemed to eat, he made a couple of little things. It was game over. He just got slower and slower. But he's clearly not going to be a changer and if he comes back over hurdles and performs as we know, he can perform, then he's got a chance of putting pushing constitution hill. If constitution hill is the horse that everybody thinks he is and if he's the horse who turned up and slammed John Bond by 22 lens at killed them, then everyone is running for second place. I just took that he use as good as everyone is thinking because that sets up a mouth watering two mile division for the rest of the season, doesn't it? What does it though? It doesn't really. Like he's incredibly exciting. I'll take that back actually to a certain extent. It's not so much that it's a mouth watering division because it's just not. It just isn't interesting champion hurdle clash with at least there you go. Yeah, and look, we're going to talk more about the champion hurdle with Sundays, rice, in a little bit, where both Mark and I are going to play another round of Willy bullets bingo. As we try to figure out, who's will he going to run? Maybe all of them. So we'll do a little bit on that later on. But I was talking to the lads on Mondays, final for long. Reviewing the weekend's action. And we were talking about I like to move it. And how

"Run at Manchester there were four runs of Ponte fracture in World War II. And since then he's been run at doncaster all that all that time. We've been looking for the 7th 7th win in a race now. We have to call it the gold stars there because now slim shady as I call it. It's on the same. That name's gonna name's gonna determine to make that name stick as well. But if you can find something we winning form with donkeys so that's also a bowl of 6 winners in the last 16 years of one a town more before on the town more before. You've had me you've had me thinking of the rings of paranoia, which is truly awful, awful television. But if you like it, great. If you like the rings of power, that's great. I'm glad for you. I thought it was bloody brutal, particularly considering that house of the dragon was at the same time, and that's the best new show on television and will be the biggest show when it comes out for season two. But there's a character in that that is, they were making out, it was Sauron and it basically looks like slim shady. So the second you said that, I was like, should we start calling the Tati Sauron though as well? Every time I see him, Molly, he's always saying he's always slim shady. The real Katie constant, please stand up. He goes to the real side he goes to play stand up. He's slim shady to me. I'll bring the memes, please make this a thing. Come on, final podcast party. Let's make this a thing. Right, here comes the jumps. Right. I'm sticking with Israel, by the way, but here comes the jump, and that's for purposes of a lucky 63 only, right? We get Jericho rock back, but proceed with caution to handicap hurdle. And he is going for the Hennessy. So that's his big target to begin the season. And I think he's got a big chance of that. He's 72 for his comeback run. And his first run after a wind up as well for David pipe and Tom scooter more. We think that Milan bridge for that man Nichols, who set for a big weekend, 72, Tom Buckley claims three flight deck for John Joe and John Joe junior at 13 to two.

"I've got a more two facts. Anyway, we digress. The jockey's non thought. Yeah, this will be Fast & Furious. Not to be confused with the actual number. These handicappers have a ceiling top operating of 80, so they're not quite in that category, but there's plenty of speeds in here, the likes of stone circle. Trim by Michael bell written by Harry cobden. The one I liked. He's a proper proper head case. This was the troubles. He only has one speed and that's fast. He literally guns out, it'll pull for his head, it'll go as fast as he can for as far as he can, but he'll give Tom scooter more one hell of a ride at that 5 film on straight. I think did you see my notes before we record it? Are we thinking alike? Yes, we are. We're thinking like again. So he was disappointing for previous connections. I don't think that's out of line say. Now he's three from 5 from makeup will be. All coming this season with the last one back in June. And that pace that he says is you said, it's scorching. I think he's, I think he's got another one. To make the handicapper really scratch his head and go, what? Can I get the ceiling on this fella? I think he can defy that raise. Up to a mark of 75 now. And I think that there's another one in them. So his last win was 26 days ago. At muscle brough, he's already beaten. This season. And I think you'll be in the winners enclosure again. There will be a part of me cheering on. She only quinlan on primo's comment, but I thought the bet was velvet Travers. And there's a nice bit of a nice story here and that valuation club we've got horses in training with David pipe with Tom's good and more has ridden and some good and more writing from a gap will be here for evaluating clubs. So it would be nice if the owners can provide them with the winner of this race and that I think they can. I really like all the traverse. I think he's going to take a I think he's going to take a lot of beating. Whoever gets in front of him wins in my mind. This flat 5 furlongs at York on fast ground. It's absolutely telomere for him. If he could have written the conditions of a race to suit this horse, this is exactly what you would have come up with. The one time that he was disappointed this season really was on soft ground that Windsor and he just didn't get home because he just pulled hard. He pulls like stinks does this horse and horses like that, they just don't get home when the ground soft but it'll be absolutely rattling at York on Saturday and he'll play catch me if you come from the front line and Tom scooter Moore won this race in 2017 and last year. So the right man is on board. Valder Travers 8 to one with kaluki, a price is disappearing by the way with other firms. So get on with kaluki sportsbook now. The two 40 at York is the dash handicap silver samurai is your 5 to one favorite from Marco buddy and Ben Curtis. Gale force Maya Michael Dodds Conner Beasley 11 to two and lucky man, 13 to two, take it away, Mark Mulligan. Yeah, this is going to be another one that will be fast and purist, but we're over 6 furlongs this time. Now, these sprint races at York, we get a lot of the usual suspects turning up. So I tend to try inside with horses that are maybe a bit less exposed in this kind of race. And one who fits the bill for me is nationwide who strained by John butler written by Danny mustard and Danny musko must give a quick word to Danny muska. He's big tremendous this season. None of the other great winter is carried that on into the summer such an underrated jockey is Danny Muscat. If you've got the horse, he'll do the business for you. No problem at all. Such a good jockey. And nationwide was acquired from saint Michael stout sharp by John butler and John butler as quickly turned him into a sprinter he had a few starts to start in fact for sir Michael stout over a male, but he won three on the bounce on the old weather attempt and twice at Wolverhampton, both over 6 furlongs, all three over 6 furlong, sorry. I thought he acquitted himself really well in his first proper big handicap behind silver samurai at haydock, last time, when maybe just got himself such further back than ideal, I think that could well still be more to come from this horse and I thought he was really interesting in an open looking and the cap. I would tend to agree. That horse, by the way, is currently 15 to two. With colloquial sportsbook nationwide, John butler, Danny musket, which brings us to our last race, three 15, sky bet York steaks, group two, claymore is your favorite 11, 8 favorite for Jane Chappelle with David Egan onboard. Dubai honor does he or doesn't he run is the question.

"Of these studies and the way the evidence was being packaged and interpreted and the kind of language and rhetoric that was being used didn't suggest to me impartiality. It screamed agenda. Now I'm not going to say that in an academic paper because I won't get published. But it is my view. And certainly, that's the way it spoke to me as someone who was an enthusiast, as you said, I grew up in the world of force race. And now some people might say that that makes me biased. But I did try and look at their work. I mean, I did a deep dive on the literature on this. And what I found was a lot of very speculative papers discussing a whole series of tangential issues ultimately, I think, because they can't nail the only thing that counts. And that's pain. And then interestingly, in those discussions about using the pro kush for encouragement or for safety or anything else and say, oh, and of course, as we've shown in our other papers, there's already a question about using it because it's painful, and because it's harmful, then say, oh, jeez I better go and look at those other papers again or look, there must be something new. And then you dig through the weeds of those papers, and there's all these little concessions. Of course, you know, what this study tells us doesn't really tell us anything about pain perception and horses, no extrapolation can be made about what's happening with horses. We don't really know this doesn't really more research needs to be done. We haven't proven yet. So there's a lot of smoke and mers to be perfectly honest. And I thought that's something that should be flagged because I think there's been a tendency on the part of some maybe to run scared from these studies and from these critics because the thinking being maybe that, oh wow, they're on to something here and we may be racing needs to just kind of get with the program and get on board with this. And I thought, don't be so don't be so sure. It's not nearly as black and white as these people are telling you, not nearly at all. And you do an excellent job of tearing those arguments to shred. But you're a 100% right in that all of this emotive language is used. Horses are being thrashed. It's so painful. And then they'll link to another article and it's like, yeah, there's no actual evidence of that. But moving along, while there's no evidence to suggest that horses are actually in pain when they're hit. Look at how they're thrashed. Again, you could send a you can send a jockey out with a gigantic feather, and they would still want to criticize it. It's the optics of it. And it's another way of targeting the sport, hissing is and trying to damage it as much as they possibly can. And that's what this is about. And you do a very good job of ripping those arguments to shred. But there's also the point that, and this is true, really, of politics in general now. People are on teams. And if you're on a team, you want to be able to support that team in the best way that you can, and so they'll fight and they'll claw. And even if evidence is presented to them that's in the contrary of what they're trying to argue, they'll dismiss that and take something else instead. And I am not oblivious to the fact that I'm I've been a fan of four sourcing since I was a teenager. I wrote show jumpers when I was a kid. I think that is incredibly advantageous to me because it meant that I was around horses and young age and I got to see the different personalities. Some of them were thoroughbred, some of them were bred to be show jumpers. And you could see how different horses they all have their own unique character traits and personalities. And I firmly believe that helps me fall in love with the sport. More and more, but I am very much aware of the fact that I am a broadcaster of horse racing. I'm a fan of this sport, therefore I am biased. I am on the defensive, immediately with someone starts to bash our spores. But if you present me with something that is undeniable, then I will, I will have to concede that that is correct. But there is nothing to suggest that. And I think that's the problem with these people is that they're on a team and it's team anti racing and therefore they just want to come up with whatever they can. So we've mentioned the backhand that use of the whip for encouragement is to be limited to the back end position only. Now this is something that both PJ McDonald and Tom scooter who were on the panel that came to these recommendations. They've spoken about it publicly themselves. So can you just break that down for us, explain it like I'm a U.S. senator. Talk to me like I'm a U.S. senator.

"Campaign against racing disappears because now it's shown that there's enough evidence out there to suggest that there's nothing to worry about. So I guess I can understand the reason for having a consultation, I would be I would be critical or have reservations about giving a mandate to make further recommendations in terms of rule changing when actually the ultimate finding of that report it seems to me is that we need further evidence. I don't know if that makes sense, but that's kind of my heart taken up really. It makes perfect sense. And I'm glad you brought up the Christophe summit on the situation as well because it is something I want to come back to. The survey that the panel had and the panel was made up of a very diverse group of individuals. There were two jockeys, Tom scooter Moore, and PJ McDonald, so we had a representative from the flash and a representative over jumps, both have spoken about how we'll get into the back end in a second about how they will have to adjust, but that is part of the process and they understand now having been part of this group. Nick luck was under as well. So it's a very broad group of individuals who were involved in coming up with this report. And it did factor in information from breeders, trainers, owners, and jockeys, although that's something I'll come back to as well, because it's a little bit disappointed with how many jockeys actually participated in this overall. But there was a survey presented to them, and that was made up of 1119 British adults. And it was conducted by ipsos. As a very small amount of people, first of all, I would say over real issue with surveys like this, it's like ratings and radio. It's like Raja or Jane lore. You're going to base the opinion of half a million people on a thousand in belan colic. It doesn't work. And I love melancholic. That's where we're broadcasting from today. Right. So when I was on radio and cork, if there was a survey done in melancholic, golden, I'd probably come out very well in that. If that survey was done in cove, maybe not so much. Because it's different areas of cork and opinions can change. But the 67 million people in the UK and this is a survey of 1119. But anyway, they've come up with this. They acknowledge in it exactly, as you said, that there is an influence on some of the respondents from animal rights groups who are actually complete scum, Peter, I'm looking at you who are actively targeting the sport and they're using the whip as a direct route in to have a go at the sport. 55% of that 1119 said that they would support banning the whip. But when it was explained to them, when someone held their hand and went, well, actually, here's what the whip does. That figure dropped by 12%. But you still have 43%. Saying nah, I don't care. I want the whip gone. That's almost certainly people. If you were to send a jockey out with a gigantic quill pen. They've got a massive feather in their hand instead. The motion of them hitting the horse with the feather is still going the optics of that are still bad. And so people are saying, like, oh my goodness, oh no, oh no. Without understanding that, no, there's no, there is no pain. And in your excellent report from a year ago and you're fantastic article the case against the use of air cushioned whips. In horse racing, analyzing the arguments, you talk about a report that was written by a man called Paul mccree and others. And you highlight the implied confidence among the respondents that they know exactly how many times to strike a horse is remarkable and you further go on to say that there is no peer reviewed study that proves that there is pain course to horses by the pro kush or by an air cushioned whip, which is absolutely right. I'm with you. If a report comes out that says actually this is hurting horses, I would change my mind on it. I would completely change my mind on it. Of course I would I care about horses, but there is no evidence to suggest that, and it's been 11 years and nothing has come out. So my overall fear with this is this if you start changing something, it can lead to a bit of chaos. If you start to implement these kinds of overall, it can lead to a destabilization of the sports. It's more cannon fodder for the BBC and others who've decided to go on this tirade against horse racing and you're just feeding them more information for all that I want our sport to be the best that it possibly can be. There are aspects of this that I feel are a bit of an open goal. I should say, if I have a coffee there, sorry, man. Let's just get to more caffeine. Well, yeah. I

"The track each morning as we do the morning lunch. In the morning name is just up for grabs. Taken. The morning line on the final front of podcasts. So darn and I are going to do like a 20 minute breakdown of the day and Dennis is going to join his life from the course to talk about how horses have settled in, what the ground is like and things like that. But Dennis is very keen on the digio, which I thought was interesting. I had a chance to preview that I did with the Buddha mangan up in west maid. Johnny ward made an interesting point about honeysuckle being 8 and they can't, they can't go on forever, and the only horse in the last ten years to defend their champion Arnold crown is bouvier. Hurricanes fly, obviously regained it. Which is a rare enough thing to do, but to be a dual champion hurdle winner is rare. And she probably does our class this field. But she's too short. So my way of playing this is adagio without the favors, which gives you three places, and that means if you're a second third or fourth, you're in the money. So that's the he's about 6 to one for that. And that's the way I've played it as you. I did back in 19 post like yourself at 33s as well. And I actually think I would mark up that we can count and run because Jamie Moore said something very interesting. He turned to Tom scooter more. He said this on ITV or racing TV. He said he turned some scooters that you have made. And then it does you're just blew up. And you know David pipes methodology, like he's carried top weight in a great wood, so you know he handles the old course, he's got cheltenham first of all experience.

"Day. Freezing. So all the heating zone and the apartment. But yeah, you're a 100% right. We're in the lab at the gods when it comes to weather forecasts and trying to judge where it is. Because I don't think they've been getting a ride lately personally. Yeah. And again, the issue department, particularly with sound owners that the hurdles course gets much deeper and can be can be really attritional. At this time of the year, she is obviously can do as well, but it tends to be a step behind the hurdles in terms of the going if it's heavy on the hurt, of course, is liable to be soft on the chest course. So that's what's banning them. I'm basically listening. He's proven on heavy grind. He's proven over further as well. He's effective at two miles. He led long press. You know, he led to the second last fence actually. And then the longest storm storm bastard to him by 6 lens. There was only a pint between that pair of the wits, both 6 year olds as well. So, you know, there's plenty of fun parallels to bedroom between them. I'd normally be a little bit wary of forces like him who shown decent form and are sneaking into races like this off the bottom wit. Sometimes it can be, it can be a bigger test, stepping up the class two from class three, usually it is, how much of this is a hugely competitive class two event, but say the least plenty of these are regressive band Doran patty's poem 11 year olds, moonlighter, just a horse is more than capable of winning on his day. But a record was to pull ups in a fall. In his last 6 starts, gives you an idea of high frustrating moonlighter can be. He can't, the big worry with moonlighter from me isn't the fact that he's a dodgy jumper. Because when his jumping comes together, he can look very good as he did when winning over a course and distance. Last February. But actually, he doesn't seem to do anything wrong at Charlton the last time out until the latter stages. He jumped well, he traveled well. He's treated even money and running and the race won't be editor to keep. But we find nothing off the rival that day. That was really disappointing because it looked like for once you're going to get the performance from moonlight that he's promised a few times. But after traveling well, I'm jumping sign the way his finishing effort was very disappointing. So that's off putting with him. Hank, I was drawn from again, and I might have won four one, a three points lower than when he won on heavy grind here last year. He's perfectly winning off that Mark. It's a change of jockey as well, Harry cobden writer for the first time. Was Tom scooter war has been on him lately. David Barr actually ruled him when he won here last year. Switching that was Tom actually. Yeah, I'm just saying he changed. I'm not making any I'm not casting aspersions on the jockey. I'm just saying as the jockey change. So the interesting high Harry Harry cotton gets on with him, but as I said, he came in for a perfectly signed ride last time. I was always well positioned. That was just a disappointing end to his wrist. The more rein he gets, the better I would say handles handles some testing but I'm pretty well, but he's a hard horse to bike. And he can lose it, he almost can do that at the first fence, and I think what he won. And he's he's the kind of person that he's capable of jumping perfectly well. He can throw in the occasional absolute hierarchy, which ruins his chance. And you've got to bear that in mind if you're ever going to back him. Up the street is generally pretty consistent and handles this track well. But again, your issue with backing up the street is Richard roux, winners are becoming rarer as time goes on. He's only had two winners over jumps, he's not the ship being one of those. He does like running as someone's better horses at that sound does Richard. Now Hulu and his jockeys really come into his own and was on board when this was one at Thompson in October. He should be there about, I can see him running a solid race. I knew which was the other one should go well, particularly if there is if there's plenty of given the grind I like numerators as a chest hair Tom's Tom's on board this. He's generally ridden rheumatoid of course, you can say that the fact that Tom switches to numerator rather than writing moonlighter could be seen as a positive to his chances. I think he's just slightly more chance on paper than the moonlight and if I was told. And I'd written moonlight in the last time I'd be happy to jump ship given what he did there. So numerators is definitely a player. But there has to be that there's nothing of redondo's class in this race either. No..

"tom scooter" Discussed on The Final Furlong Podcast

"I still don't know can't quite put my finger on what he's doing in the moment when he's in form, usually reaches a lot more prominently. And he's had 6 runs 5 or 6 rounds in a row now where he's just not really thinking much interest. And whether that's mental or whether there's a bit of a physical issue there that's been holding him back. I don't know. But prior to that, last year he was placed in the world champion hurting that place and the great and both of those races of wood that tremendously well. Very, very strong form, and yet he's fallen a long way on the way up since then. So this might be the opportunity to bind back up and trip in a race where he can he should be able to raise closer to the pierce as well, which I think is probably important to him. But there's also the concern that he just might be regressing all the time. And when you start punting horses, you're regressing, you tend to keep finding reasons to back and as they fall down the handicap. But they're often just going backwards that little bit too fast for you to ever catch them right. So that's a tricky one with barley Andy. But again, that would be a really popular result of he popped up. It's a bit like you're warning about le Roy in the previous race, but yeah, look, I mean, the. Because the boys are staying chaser. He just looked like he was completely completely PSS last time. I'd be slightly, I'd be slightly more positive at rebellion. You know, he binds back and wouldn't surprise me. If LeBron won, I'd be waiting for that for two years, whereas the suddenly come from. I can understand the bicycle. But I could also understand if he can finish rear of midfield here. It's just like he's going through the motions. But he's worth it was bearing in mind at a price. As his kids who tends to go well here, disappointing here last time when I was over fences. I think he's a better horse over hurdles anyway. He won well here with Tom scooter on board. Up this meeting of a market for a 134. And was actually very game in the finish. He thought a reputation of being not much of a background kit. Because he's got a high headline, but some horses just have high head courages. But he actually battled on really well from the last total to win this of one three four. He's off the same mark again now and that's you've only got to forgive one run of offenses and one over hurdles since then to give him a big chance. And he has to run his best races at entry. So he's what prices get some tens. Yeah, again, a double figure price. He's interesting. Next fulfilled. It should give him a decent ride as well. And they'd be kind of my short list. I'm always going to have horses that are reasonable price on.
