    I have absolutely no idea mate.

    Do they take ANY bets in bookies these days ? Apart from Irish Lottery, Spanish Lottery, Portuguese Lottery etc etc and of course FOBTS.

    I do know they still sell Peach Melbas on the bakery near my mothers

    We've made a good few quid out of Cybalko this season but i would be surprised if he can get his head in front tomorrow.
    He has won four of his five chases since he got his head in front for us but has paid the price and is now 26lb higher than that win. He is up in trip as well and is taking on a better class of horse now.
    There are a few in the race i would back before him. It is a good race.

    Fosters Island goes again on Saturday in a conditional jockeys trace at Newcastle. He'll only carry a penalty there as he wont be reassessed until a week tomorrow where he will definitely get a big hike up the handicap.

    I've already had my ticking off mate. I did tell her it had an obvious chance but there were just too many runners to go thru. So she didnt back it. Back to sleeping in the garage if i keep doing this.

    But i dont think it will win.

    Aah it won’t be a backable price as it’s bound to be 3/1 or less. A horse that finished behind ex se lance last time out won today. It must hav3 a fair enough chance tomorrow.

    Good luck if you get involved but i doubt you will. There is just no need to back the horse again.
    A few interesting runners on the card though, especially for when the ground dries out a bit more.

    Nope. (And i'm leaving it at that. I've got into enough bother lately by telling her not to back certain animals)
    I passed her earlier while she was punting tomorrows and i saw she had backed Snougar. I think she backed Eceparti as well but i couldnt be certain on that.
    There is no point me asking her because i just get told to mind my own business or words to that effect.

    She's backed Bellamys Grey as well at 25's in the hope that it picks its feet up better. There is a little race in that horse somewhere and i was hoping he would give it another spin over hurdles. He may still do, keep your eyes peeled.

    Hope she she is getting a bonus for selecting a horse who’s trainer hasn’t had a winner in years!

    He didnt have that many as a jockey either. There is a bad race in that horse but i would have thought it would have had more chance over hurdles because he is inclined to belt a fence or three. But at the sort of price it is she is happy to part with a few quid each way.
    I shall refrain.
