• 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.

Punted Round up


2.47 chep BALLYOPTIC 8/1 ew

Won this race last season off a 11lb lower mark and slower ground but i would guess twiston-davies will have him plenty fit enough to go very close today and with every chance of winning. His record shows october his a good month for him and because he is short of top class this kind of race would be his kind of target, ran 5 times last year and won 3 of them, beaten twice but both races were asking plenty.
The fav SECRET INVESTER has never been a fav of mine so maybe i'm bias but i don't think his jumping is all that great and the 5 fences in the straight could favour BALLYOTIC imo
Of the others SEDDON is getting plenty of weight and is fit from racing 3 times over the summer, BOLDMERE might be better this year but needs to improve i believe so on balance and providing there are no more nrs BALLYOPTIC looks very solid to me.
Alot of time wasted on another non runner


T tacker I had him on the shortlist too - there's been a lot of horses pulled out due to "unsuitable ground" today - the 4.32 Chepstow for example - and the majority of horses are proven winners on the surface? Spiritofthegames was mentioned on another thread and another on my shortlist - record on good ground: W2, Pl 1 from 4 runs and is pulled out because of the ground:(
