To be fair Famous, I was going to do them all in batches rather than one by one, but maybe you know all of Willie's and can save me the bother?

Vic Venturi - Paddy Flood
Black Apalachi - Denis O'Regan ( would of thought Howard Johnson will want him to ride one of his though ? )
Also would think Davy Russell on Made in Taipan

Niche Market is a good horse and I'd give him every chance on better ground but I'd be worried about him making any impact on soft <ok>

"Jockeys To Be Fitted With Airbags
The UK Heath and Saftey Excutive has ruled that Jockeys taking part in this years Grand National will be fitted with airbags for the first time after a succesful trail of the system at Bangor On Dee race course. During a month long evautation period no Jockey that used the airbag system suffered serious injury..."

Should say trial obviously...unless it's a joke (I'm picturing a trail of jockeys bouncing along)

Latest - Stable jockey Paddy Brennan will ride Irish Raptor for Nigel Twiston-Davies in his bid to follow up his Cheltenham Gold Cup triumph on Imperial Commander.

Other firm bookings are Brian Hughes for Beat The Boys, David England on Ballyfitz and Tom Molloy for Ollie Magern.

That quartet are already guaranteed a place in the maximum 40-strong field, but Hello Bud (Sam Twiston-Davies) and Knowhere (Brian Harding) need horses above them in the handicap to come out.

However, Twiston-Davies has ruled out Razor Royale, who will instead be aimed at the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown.

Not sure Razor Royale was in the top 40 anyway Frank.
Do you (or anyone) know of horses in the 40 who have prefered engagements elsewhere ?

Paul Moloney will ride State of Play, Paul Townend on Arbor Supreme, Ross Mclernon on whichever O'Neill horse AP rejects, Daryl Jacob on Maljimar

Good news for me with Razor Royale coming out means The Package only needs another 3 to come out.

HF any word on King Johns Castle? <ok>

Just to confirm that <strong>Chelsea Harbour</strong> (27th in the weights) is also out, so The Package only needs two more to pull out to get in

I am wondering if Katie Walsh will get a ride after her Cheltenham successes.

| complain about this comment

posted Apr 1, 2010

Well I think maybe she has earned one! And of course Nina C's gone round here a few times as well. How about two female jockeys? Will create some extra interest...
