    I said last year 'Replaces the charity race. A G2, first prize £45k. One more race on which to have a bet. A great idea for breeding purposes. Another opportunity for W Mullins to add to the tally?' Rocket science deja vu.


    Race distance - 2 miles and about a furlong. All carry 11st 2lbs apart from 4 yr olds - 10st 12lbs. Penalties for having won Class 1 or 2 hurdle.


    2016 Limini capped a good day for Irish trained and short priced treble kings after Thistlecrack and Vautour. In 2017, guess what? Lets Dance capped a great day for Ruby and Willie with another short priced treble after Yorkhill and Un De Sceaux. A nicer 4 timer if you had thrown in Nichols Canyon. No? Me neither.

    Believe Willie has something called Laurina for this year. Rocket science?





  • Limini , a 5yr old off 145 beat Dusky Legend, a 6 yr old, of 123 and Bloody Mary another 5yr. The latter was the best of the Henderson three runners. The actual top rated and 6/1 second favourite Smart Talk off 149 disappointed. Limini went off 8/11 won by 4 1/2 lengths. Her best previous run was a G3 over 2m 2f at Fairyhouse at the end of January. I don't remember Ruby having a moment's worry here. Just remember Steve counting money from his treble.

    Lets Dance was a second season novice and had won four on the trot since Punchestown. Won here of 147. Beat Barra, of Gordon Elliotts rated 136, and Dusky Legend. Lets Dance best previous win was a 2m 4f G2 stroll at Leopardstown at the end of January. Don't remember Ruby having a moment's worry here. How did that go off at 11/8? Just remember Steve counting money from his treble. Deja vu?
    Both unbeaten since Punchestown and French Breds owned by Mrs Ricci. Believe Laurina isn't.

Wealth Warning.  Any decisions made (or not) or the basis of any information in this site are the sole responsibility of the reader.  There is no obligation on me to follow my own advice (Gary).  I take no responsibility for (but am keen to hear of) any factual errors.  Previous years ‘stats on stats’ would suggest we may identify a decent priced winner from manageable groups every three or four races.  I tend to improve as a tipster as the week goes on, possibly too worried on the Tuesday.  It is believed that Savello (2014 Grand Annual) took from Golden Chieftain (2013 3m hcap chase) the record for breaking the most stats in a race.  Stands now at 8.  Cole Harden equalised with 8 in the 2015 World Hurdle.  Remember, after you have cursed/laughed at me and given up totally on trends, they will come back to bite.  Always happens.  Usually on Gold Cup Day
