    Just watched the coverage from yesterday, It's hard to explain what's so good about certain moments in racing, particularly NH racing to "non" racing folk but, Briony Frost's post race interview sums up what it's all about for me. Great stuff by horse and jockey.
    My "certain moment" was Istabraq winning third Champion hurdle. It was good for me cos I won a fortune but I understand I shouldnt have said that so I'll say no more 😀😀😀😀

    I still feel unwell when thinking about Dayjur, the costliest loser I ever had.

    Free bet on French Made for a grand today.

    It was more to do with things that unite the viewing public rather than winning or losing a bet. Things like the reaction Persian Punch received whenever it entered the winners enclosure for example.

    Totally agree. Despite not having a penny on Frodon yesterday, having been a follower in the past, I absolutely loved watching the horse get back up after being headed. The hairs were up on my neck at the race alone, then the passion and emotion from BF and connections after were brilliant. It's moments like that I manage to convince myself I'm not just in this for my punting habit, but for a love of the game. Similar to the time I was out my seat roaring Kauto Star to a 5th King George without betting a penny, and those around me not understanding how I could be so excited without a bet.

    As far as other certain moments go - I always remember Annie Power falling at Cheltenham (2015?) and bursting many bets (including my 4 fold) but the biggest roar of the day apparently being for a fallen horse with curtains round etc, getting back on its feet and running off fit and well. And rightly so.

    I backed him in that race too, paid for a fair chunk of my w-end @ The London Hibs Burns Supper. 🍻

    3 winners from that day won yesterday, a few placed horses with good form from that day too.
    Birchdale won that day too and is being well backed to win The Albert Bartlett.

    I've backed Birchdale ew, I'm struggling to decide about The Gold Cup, I can't see Native River being out of the first four but, something tells me it won't win. 🏇

    4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and an accumulator. Treble odds for 1 winner.

    Cheers mate

    The morning of that race in January it was 12ís!

    Brilliant story for the trainers as well.

    Anyone taking Tiger Roll for the National at 11/4?!
    I get the impression Tiger Roll won't run in the National having listened to Gordon Elliots interview.

    He would have a real shot if he did though as his allocated weight is only 2lbs higher than when he won last year.

    Terrible outcome of the first race.
    Unfortunately, that's the game.
