    Erm one of them was a favourite. The second part of your statement is, however, accurate.

    Moved house a month ago and didn't realise we have a point to point course about 1/2 a mile from our door, only noticed it the other week when loads of traffic and horse boxes were suddenly going down our quiet lane, it's a pretty big meeting.

    There's a horse running at Cheltenham called, Benefficient, I reckon he's worthy of interest at a good price, not sure which race it's running in yet as it has several entries. This is video of him winning at our local course after coming form a long way back:

    http://www.p2ptv.ie/?tube=78

    He then pulled of a 50/1 win in the Deloitte Novice Hurdle (Grade 1) 2m2f at Leopardstown, beat several good horses in that race, some of which have won or ran well since, video here:

    http://www.racingpost.com/news/hors...efficient-springs-50-1-deloitte-shock/986931/

    This horse could be anything, he's in form apart from pulling up in his second to last race, which the trainer put down to the soft going, but it had won it's previous race to that on heavy going.

    Several of the horses behind it that day have won/placed since to frank that form. Could be something or nothing, would prefer to see it run at 2m - 2m 6f as not sure it'll see out a 3 mile trip, more a speed horse than a stayer, and it's entered for one of the 3 mile hurdle races at Cheltenham, one to keep an eye on anyway.

    I had a treble on Sprinter Sacre, Hurricane Fly and Quevega, I think Hurricane Fly was ran like it was in a longer race but the winner was really good anyway :)

    I'm not a gambler but that sounds pretty hard to achieve - congrats...(how much?)

    Don't know why, but gambling is just about the only vice which has passed me by - suppose there's time yet though.
