• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

CF 2018 TIMICO GOLD CUP - DAY 4

great race between the two and a great example of how crucial the ground conditions are to the result of any race. Staying was the name of the game as it looked like Might Bite would cruise past him from the second fence out. i think we should have another Going Description - Gluey ! when it rains on the day and goes Soft/ Heavy often horses can just sluice through it but when the Heavy ground starts to dry out and becomes Gluey it becomes difficult for horses which have a gear change to make use of it . on another day on better ground i think Might Bite goes past Native River ?

Thought MB was cruising 2 out and was just a case of when. On better ground I think the result would be reversed. A great spectacle never the less.
 
agree dicko14 dicko14 . it was a great week , as it is always and probably financially my best too . i am not sure what to make of all the Stats and Trends info because these Irish Boy's seem to be re - writing the History Books so to speak , over the last few years . will this carry on ? i expect it will for a few more years ? i think it is foolish to bet too far out and more notice needs to be taken of the Going and more effort needs to be put into studying the Irish form and the way they go about things ! ah well , the countdown begins again !!

Evening all I watched it late on after taping it aand I bet Total recall who I thought slipped rather than fell, and I though he was going well.

I also didn’t think Mite Bite would stay after the last run at Cheltenham, last year Kempton form hasn’t worked out well.

I wouldn’t be sure how the race will stand up my opinion is Native River won’t win next year if turning up to defend the crown.

I’m no time expert but also thought the 2 were given an easy lead and better ground wouldn’t have been the case.

Cheers

I agree with you it may have Been a lot of runners but if you took the others out it turned in to a match with nothing else getting near so that make s it uncompetitive to me, we shall see there’s Aintree and Puchestown and Galway to come.
