With the Grand National thread on the Sports forum, a lot of us managed to talk ourselves into finding the winner over about four pages or so.

Since it's pretty dead in here just now I was thinking, could we pick a race that's about a week or so away and discuss it and argue over it and come up with the winner?

Any thoughts?

Anyone fancy picking a race? 

A half-decent handicap would be my shout. 5.15 at Chester on Thursday?

Older horses and plenty form to chew on.

Had a look through the race and as I find Chester as hard as the dogs :lol: I'm going to go with previous course, distance and ground winner Kenstone. 

It's a tough race and I do like C&D form at Chester. It's won in a higher grade than this one as well.

So that @16/1 for me e/w.

No a race i could really get involved in lol.

Although O'mera is in good form and he has sultan baybars from stall 2 which is a plumb draw there so I'd say that's probably a second choice

Its Feathered Nest for me at 7/1.

Hanagan the Managan is one of my fav jocks and he's had the pick of Faheys entries.

This thread's been a bit mixed to be honest.

I got the time wrong and Ian got the day wrong, but got a 7/1 winner anyway. :lol:

Anyone fancy picking another race?

by strange coincidence...or is it an omen?....Hanagan the Managan and Fahey have Dark Devil running...now at 7/1........same as yesterday

Very unlucky guys. I know it's a slow burner but this could take off. I'll put some proper in put in when we pick the next race.

I'm not picking any race of sort but I will put up some info I've come across lately, a guy I work with put me onto a jockey to follow...the lad Rob Hornby, now the lad normally gets between 1-3 rides a day but sometimes he has none, the big priced winners this boy is landing is frightening, his 3 main trainers are balding, tuite and the interesting one is a guy Portman.....I think of late they are 4/6 the 1st winner landed at odds of 33/1 and the latest one I saw returned at 7/2....maybe the bookies getting wise, anyway he had 2 rides on Monday the 1st was nowhere so I backed his 2nd ride kimifive....the fucker got beat on the nod at 12/1, anyway I have been keeping an eye out for his mounts and he only has 1 tonight at Chelmsford in the 8.10....he is riding for balding on the outsider of 5 at odds of 28/1....in no way am I tipping this up I am merely pointing out he is worth following👍
