    I havent really sat down and gone through the cards but would love Native River to win the GC, also Black Orton with Briony Frost in the RSA. I just hope Giggenstown doesnt clean up apart from Apples Jade. Wouldnt it be wonderful if The New One won the stayers. I dont bet either just love the whole thing, I dont go anymore as you see far more on tv.

    Does anyone banking on Footpad think it strange that he has drifted in the betting even though the owners have issued a statement(well their agent) saying they have had positive reports from Willie Mullins, Is there smoke without fire?

    I wouldn't trust anything WM or RR said about a local goat, let alone one of their horses. I hope they don't win anything!

    I told them my beauty could fly...

    I for one hope they do well, I don’t get this dislike of the big owners, without them spending millions buying and training their horses we wouldn’t have racing how it is....Cheltenham is what it is because all the big horses finally meet and champions are made. I hope they do well particularly his stars .....

    Agree 100%, for racing and all equestrian disciplines. Without the big owners we'd all feel the fall out.

    It's not the owners and their wads of cash that annoy us! We love their money! It's their personalities we don't like! If everyone like the same thing live would be very boring! There's more than one flavour of ice cream so there is something for everyone!

    Personally I quite like Willie Mullins but dislike RR. I like Gordon Elliot and I actually admire the O'Leary's because of their outspoken views.

    I don't like Colin Tizard much, nor do I like Barry Geraghty but others love them both.

    Each to their own!

    I think it would probably cost me the £1k to sort out the effects of a week of drunken racegoers in my house.....

    This made me snort with laughter!

    I don't actually mind WM, its Giggenstown I'm not so mad about.

    I'd LOVE The New One is win the Stayers, wouldn't it be lovely?

    WE ?? We love their money but not their personalities ?? I'm not sure I'd be very happy if I were your employer at you making such public statements. If Ms Russell is looking to attract new owners she wont want a member of her staff slagging off wealthy and influential owners on a public forum. What about if you need to be finding another job sometime. You've slagged off quite a few people in the past - other trainers, jockeys. Best hope it doesn't catch you out.

    I try not to comment on racing threads now as generally there is far to much bitching about Trainers and owners. Im afraid you have to be more open minded because in NH would be a lot poorer if it was not for Gigginstown ,JP McManus,Willie Mullins and RR etc. They all pump in huge amounts of money that racing badly needs. Everybody used to hate MartinPipe in his hey day however he brought inovation into racing that changed it. Its similar on the flat with the Maktoums without them what would racing be.
    Now for Cheltenham be wary because unless they get some reasonable rain and then dries it will ride really dead due to the recent freeze so stamina will be at a premium!
