To join-up, join-in to Punters’ Zone and play the gambling game that horseracing provides is worked out in opinion, it is all about opinion. Every person is allowed to have their own opinion. Perhaps that is what makes it so popular. David's call. David's opinion. An ace hurdler Rock On Ruby moves on to tackling the big chase fences. A considerable change to tackle these big chase fences for Rock On Ruby who's partner in Noel Fehily is a plus. It will be interesting to hear what CH4 Tanya (Stevenson's) market movers are before the off. In my opinion if Rock On Ruby was one of my favourite horses my opinion would be to back him to win. But in context here it is David's opinion at the end of the day that will count.
ROCK ON RUBY'S HOME TEAM
you check out ROCK ON RUBY’s form you will see that he has won his last two
races, both of which have been in Novice
Chases over 2 miles + with NOEL FEHILY in the saddle, a big plus. You will also
notice that in these two novice chases there has been only one or two other
challengers. So ROCK ON RUBY has not had to start out learning to compete, to
tackle these big chase fences as well with a mass of other learner jump horses
all around him, to sidetrack his concentration. Or to get in his way, or to bring him down. There are likely to be possibly
17 other runners in this race on Tuesday (2.05 Arkle Chase 2m) so this will be
in part a new experience for him. This will be only ROCK ON RUBY’s third run
over these big chase fences all in novice company.
95 per cent of race going public to include the British political and horseracing governments have no idea how much these horses have to learn to compete in these novice events, to progress on to become experienced chasers takes time, if you try to rush horses, you face the real danger of over facing them and of putting them off jump racing altogether.
Allowing British horseracing to be run by the ‘Bloodhorse Illiterate’ over the last 5 decades is one of the most dangerous errors within British government that has ever been made. ‘ Bloodhorse Illiteracy ’ is responsible for allowing this sport to get as dangerous as it is now. As dangerous as it will be over this next week for all the riders in the Cheltenham weighing room going out to ride all this week. Of being the direct cause of millions of racehorses suffering serious injury and death. Blighting the daily lives of true horsemen making their jobs far more dangerous than should ever be. With serious injuries and deaths to horsemen. Davy Russell (IRE) comment this week brings this matter into sharp and shocking focus. This Bloodhorse Illiterate government do not have the right to mess up the lives of all those who have achieved true ‘Bloodhorse Literacy’ in their own right. Or to deny the young ones a true bloodhorse literate career path. British government like Hitler’s on the loose.
