    I said last year 'Replaces the charity race. A G2, first prize £42k. 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.


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


    Limini capped a good day for Irish trained and short priced treble kings. Grahams and Skybet went 15/2 Vautour/Thistlecrack and this. Hindsight would say they all should have been 1/2 shots. As soon as the first the two legs went in, it was easy to trade out here at 4/6 if you wanted. Limini went off 8/11 won by 4 1/2 lengths and I don't remember Ruby having a moment's worry. Just remember Steve counting money.


    Limini , a 5yr old off 145 beat Dusky Legend, a 6 yr old, of 123 and Bloody Mary another 5yr unrated as had ran most races in France. The latter was the best of the Henderson three runners. The actual top rated and 6/1 second favourite Smart Talk off 149 disappointed.



    My Hurricane Fly owners source has had Asthuria lined up for this since Easter. Does seem to travel well but hurdles seem to have become a slight issue. Was well in contention when coming down at the last in what was Limini's prep race at Fairyhouse. Left Shattered Love to come home alone. You would think that whatever Willie runs, will make them all go.



    Hills and Powers 1/5 odds 1-2-3. Get a grip, lads.

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). The Stats Proverb says 'Relevance Is In The Eye Of The Beholder.' 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 concerned 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
