    You're getting the hand of the @ symbol though, I'd have you shorter than Lobos. You'll be using emojis next.

    Can I get a price on BigFish doing it with his graphs and sliding scale?
    I also know how to find the buttons on the back end of the forum to change your picture and tag too, so be careful or you'll end up with My Little Pony all over your account.

      Kevloaf is a 25s shot
      Lobos is 200s
      and I’m a million...
      Unsure how I've made it in there at 7's, you won't find worse value at the festival

        I’ll take 10% for the idea...
        My buddy created a championship ff platform (www.gaffr.io) - was chatting to him just before xmas about taking his codebase to do something similar with Racing. Won't be able to put much time into in for the foreseeable I'd say but its something i have on my backlog.

        Not claiming to be really clever but i am a tech nerd

          We should get that on the racecards.... back the most valuable is probably a better system than anything I've ever come up with.
          if this does prove true it puts tremendous value on all irish runners with nrnb - surely they'd only bring over runners they're uber confident about?

            Brexit is a bigger issue than Covid, but WPM having a runner in the UK tomorrow is a big step forward for March, as is the VAT revelation. It shows it can be done.

            It will of course impact some operations but, and its an important but, Gigginstown, CPS, RR, Morans, Donnelly's etc are all examples of owners that would take a 19% hit like that without blinking, especially knowing they will get it back. Therefore the vast majority of Irish horses that impact the quality of the festival will make it, despite potentially few coming over overall.

                  I have too many limitations to be considered a real IT geek, I'll leave that up to 2/7 fav ryanh97 who should be more a 1/20 shot

                            Old man's memory says second half of February when they've mostly had their prep runs.

                            • The poor Skektons have had a horror show today. Poor Mohaayed and Ardelthen, I can’t imagine there was much chat on the way home from Warwick today

                                Shocker TKP. Ardlethen really was the apple of the owners eye too. Awful.
