I went on the Thursday two years ago with the lads from our footy club, and five of us backed a 50-1 shot in the amateur race.

 

It was 8th coming to the final fence, at the back of the chasing pack behind a horse which was way out in front.

 

It flew past the whole pack over the last, and started gaining rapidly on the leader which was out on its feet, passing it just before the line.

 

And of course a good night was had by all on the coach and in town on our return. I woke up on the Friday morning with a whopping hangover and about £400 in sweaty notes scattered across my bedside cabinet and on the floor...

Thurs/ Fri for me. We'll have to meet up for a beer, Dave.

 

Are you getting the train over?

 

 

Yeah - not booked it yet.

 

Let me know your travel plans. I'm meeting my dad and brother at the racecourse but travelling there on me todd so if you fancy travelling over together that suits me.

It was called " Maximise " in the Kim Muir, trained by Martin Pipe. Remember the race well.

 

I'm booked in on the Tuesday and Wednesday, staying at the site next to the course. I think they're the best days. Arkle, Queen Mother, Champion Hurdle, RSA hurdle and chase races...bloody brilliant.
