"I've become a suitable case for Joan Bakewell"
Pic: Please offer this seat to someone who needs it more than you do
 

"AGEISM is a serious problem. I realised this on the Central Line on Monday when returning from the hearing of John McCririck's claim that he was dismissed by Channel 4 because of his age. We await the tribunal results of John McCririck's Claim

 "I got on a train at Holborn and, as I stood clutching one of those poles, 
a neatly dresses, politely spoken young man asked if I would like his seat. Then the young woman sitting next to him asked me if I would like hers, perhaps in case deafness had prevented me from hearing the first offer. It was a shocking moment. a turning point in life, en route to death, and I said, " Blimey, "I must look ancient, " They did not demur.

 

"It was , I submit, a blatant case of ageism. If I had been 30, would they have offered me their seats? Precisely, my case rests. They might argue it was a case of justifiable ageism, all things considered (state of head, state of body, etc) but it was a distressing experience, not to be passed unchallenged.

 

When I told a friend of similar vintage, he said that, a fortnight ago, he had exactly the same experience and felt the same sense of shock and hurt. Something must be done, possibly by Joan Bakewell, who is in charge of old age.

 

"It may be that these two young people are travelling the underground daily, habitually offering their seats to the elderly. It's not good enough. The education system's probably to blame, with school children being encouraged to display good manners - take an occasional break from sexting, turn the music down - that kind of thing. They need to be told to show some respect. Do they? By refusing to offer up  their seats unless someone has already slumped to the floor and is likely to get in the way of people trying to get on or off.

 

"If it happens again I'm going to Judge Alison Lewzey, who has been hearing the Big Mac case and knows about these thing. Does she? In the meantime, I will stick to the buses, and try to remember my bus pass. Like a good little boy?  (Ronnie Corbett's part  on TV in the program "Sorry" springs to mind)
 
A 41 year old man (Ronnie Corbett) is unable to leave home because of his domineering mother (Babara Lott).    

"What has this got to do with today's Betfred Cesarewitch? Does everything have to have something to do with everything else? Does every question require an answer? No

Oh yes, according to government, Doing the right thing to suit government that is. If government need to find a way of getting rid of the elderly, other than killing half the population off in wars. As government seems to have got rid of most of them this way in the past. (British people that is, one way or another)

"The salient feature of today's Cesarewitch is that it is a handicap threatening to contain 34 runners, staged over a distance few of the contestants have encountered before. The chances of you backing the winner are, let's face it, remote. When the starting stalls open, I bet you look at the horses (Obviously, you'll have to look more than once, because you won't be able to get them all into your field of vision at the same time) and think, how could I possibly have thought I'd pick the winner from that lot? And, of course, you're right.

 

"ONE way of approaching it is to rule out everything that hasn't already run, and preferably won,  over hurdles. Did you know (of course you didn't)  that 17 of the last 20 Cesarewitch winners were winning hurdlers, with 11 of them having won at least one hurdle race before winning at Newmarket? There have been some good hurdlers. Top Cees (1999) has previously won the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival, Landing Light (2003) had already won several valuable hurdle races, including the Tote Gold Trophy, while Detroit City (2006) was a former Triumph Hurdle winner.

 

"Eliminating everything that hasn't run over hurdles reduces the field to 17, ten of whom have already run over jumps. Among the market leaders, if you've backed Smoky Hill, Tiger Cliff, Pallasator or Oriental Fox you need to be afraid, whereas if you've backed Domination, Lieutenant Miller, Big Easy or Platinum you can indulge in a mild smug smirk. Domination has already won four times over hurdles in Ireland, where he was rated 143 for his latest success. If there were hurdles at Newmarket (there aren't), Domination and Big Easy would fight out the finish, followed by Lieutenant Miller.

 

"If this approach doesn't suit you, an alternative is to go by size, which case Pallasator will win easily, because he's enormous. Four times in the past 20 years, Sir Mark Prescott has had a horse finish in the first five, which excludes Alleluia, who finished sixth in 2001 after fracturing her pelvis. The three-year-old had recently won the Doncaster Cup and was officially 19lb well in. She never raced again.

 

"In 1993, the charismatic grey Hasten To Add finished fourth after looking the likely winner but failing to stay. The following year he won the Ebor, off a 12lb higher handicap mark. Last year, Prescott's Motivado also finished fourth. Yes, it would be nice if Pallasator won, even though it might make me guilty of sizeism. "


J. Margaret Clarke Turfcall Comment (JMC) 

Did you observe in yesterday's Newmarket 3.50 Cesarewitch Handicap Racecard that CH4 Morning Line Owner Superstar Guest W Henry Ponsonby mentioned that both his runners in this Flat race today:

TIGER CLIFF 4  9-10 - TOM QUEALLY - TEAM CECIL (Top weight)
Racing Post Rating of 113
and
LIEUTENANT MILLER 7  8-11 - RYAN MOORE - TEAM HENDERSON
Racing Post Rating of 113; are going hurdling after this race, both go to trainer Alan King: both had a Racing Post Rating of 113 in the Cesarewitch. But TIGER CLIFF 8th 7-1f was giving Ponsonby's older horse 3rd 10-1 LIEUTENANT MILLER  13lb's in weight, although they both had the same Racing Post Rating of 113.

TEAM KING


Alan King learned his true Equus skills working with the legendry David  Nicholson

 
The winner  66-1. SCATTER DICE  4  8-8  SILVESTRA de SOUSA - TEAM JOHNSTON 66-1  has a Racing Post Rating of 115.

 Highest Racing Post Rating 117 was 4th 20-1 CHIBERTA KING 7 9-8 - OISIN MURPHY (5) - TEAM BALDING

Lowest Racing Post Rating 109 THECORNISHCOCKNEY 4 9-8 - STEVE DONOHOE - TEAM JOHN RYAN. NON RUNNER Unsuitable ground.

Lowest Racing Post Rating 109 27th 18-1 RESSESION PROOF 7 8-2 -
 CONNOR KING (5) TEAM JOHN QUINN
 
All 33 runners had Racing Post Ratings of between 109 and 117.  Only 8 points between all 33 runners. Through the key hole the clues are there, but can you spot them? Did you spot them?



THE TRUE CIRCLE OF LIFE
Is lived by true Equus horsemen every day. It is the true Equus horsemen that are putting the true Great back into Britain every day. In France the Head family. etc etc ...

Why is TREVE so beautiful?  Because she is beautiful. She has been allowed to be beautiful.
 She has received highly skilled careful guidance throughout her life this far, the reason she was able to put up such a polished performance.

ASK JOHN FRANCOME

50 YEARS OF THE INJURED JOCKEY FUND


"Fred Winter did the one thing for me that most trainers would never have done - he gave me a chance, he believed in me. Without him I'd have been selling second-hand cars somewhere."


John had been competing in show jumping, so he had achieved an accurate lingo with riding a horse or pony on the bridle over fences. This is what Fred Winter will have noticed about John's technique in the saddle straight away.


 
There are some good questions here.  A highly significant and interesting feature.  A must read.
Gee-gee genius: John Francome

RACING POST FRIDAY OCTOBER 18th 2013

KEY point for "Ask John Francome. " 

WHO SHOULD BE MAKING A CONSIDERABLE  CONTRIBUTION TO THE IJF EVERY MONTH BUT DO NOT:

I. The British Political Government
2. The British Horseracing Government
3. Each and every Racecourse
4. Each and every Bookmaker
Where is John's monthly cheque from these 4 as listed?

 
LANDLORDS
Landlords who prey on frail and vulnerable tenants. Rents keep going up and standards keep going down. Every day maintenance issues ignored, faulty electric wiring, blocked drains never attended to.
 
POLITICIANS
British politicians may live themselves in luxury but have absolutely no idea how poorer people are getting ripped off every single day.
