    Cheers, just seen it, made it plain that it was the owner that was eager to purchase, some owners are gung-ho I expect but they pay the bills.

    • If we're running lines of form through these contenders Teahupoo has to be at the top of the list with a line through Autumn Evening. im also not having it that Youmdor would have beaten him had he not tipped over. It would have been very close judging by how well Teahupoo ran to the line. Im happy with Zan & this thing. imho.

        Be careful. Gordon said immediately after his race that he's a Stayer for next season and that he's not a 2 miler.

          The actual quote via attheraces was:

          ‘He’s probably more of a stayer next year than a two-miler. I loved the way he put his head out and galloped from the last to the line’

          I read that as talking more about his longer term future than where he may end up this season. Clearly he is half decent over 2 miles and would not see anything in that quote which suggests he may be saved for next season.

            If that's how you see it, NRNB would be the way to go maybe.

              Thanks RC. I was pretty sure it wasn’t quite as lobos had said but couldn’t remember the exact phrasing. Putting our own individual spin on other peoples words is ok when making decisions on our own bets but less so when giving advice to others imo. On another example earlier on a different thread, I think it was Spectre that asked for the precise wording from Venetia Williams concerning Royal Pagaille and the GC being his likely destination and I am not sure that has materialised yet (apologies if it has since I last looked) I 100% support Spectres stance on this. All of us have a responsibility to distinguish fact from interpretation particularly when quoting or referencing connections.

                Agree with all this and better still if the link can be copied and paste which I meant to do in my previous post:

                  A golden rule for on here


                  I agree with the sentiment, however, we are all responsible for our own bets. If you take someone on here at face value, that's your (our/anyones) decision, in the same way it is taking Kevin Blake, or Mick Fitz, or Ruby, or Willie, or any tipster on face value etc.

                  You learn to know who states facts, who creates their own facts, and who twists both



                  It's why I'm an absolute dick when people state opinions as facts, adding IMO every now and again just helps us keep that balance so we don't get in difficult situations.... you'd hope it wouldn't be needed, but we still have to put "do not drink" on bleach bottles, so whilst that's the extreme, that's why I am always banging on about that

                  • I agree Kev. What you say is correct. Buyer beware and all that.

                    The thing that pisses me off in the instance quoted above, was I asked for where it was quoted and my question was completely ignored. It would have been a simple courtesy to say where the quote was, or to confirm it was a guess or an opinion that was just badly worded. It would also have saved me from a complete trawl of every form of racing media out there.

                    Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more I sweat, the luckier I get.

                      Yep, can totally appreciate why that would be annoying.

                      For all -
                      • Give as much detail as possible when using quotes (including source and a link to it where possible)
                      • If you're giving an opinion about facts, please make sure it's clear that it is your interpretation or opinion.

                        I have etched 'IMO' into my soul.

                              Yep. I was going to have it tattooed on my penis but In my opi wouldn't have made any sense.

                              • You'll only see it in the mirror if it's on your forehead. It will take you several days to work out what OMI stands for.
