It seems to me to be getting worse each year and RR/WM are the biggest culprits.don't get me wrong I know they leave multiple entries in in case something goes wrong with 1 but it ain't half frustrating for punters
Other trainers are doing it too. see pipe and tizzard

While I understand why ye'r annoyed you must remember above all that they are trying to place their many horses in the races they're most likely to win. They have no regard for the punter and so they shouldn't
. I don't believe for one second that they set out to deceive anyone.
Horses aren't machines and when your trying to place as many as Willie its never straight forward.

I understand upto a point it's just frustrating for us punters.as for pipe/tizzard etc I think they're trying to 2nd guess WM too so keeping their options open which is to be 3xpected really

VVM faces Limini and Apples Jade, meaning the OLBG race could potentially be the most fascinating on Day 1 :D

I'm very surprised that VVM isn't going for the Champion Hurdle as Annie Power did last year, perhaps signalling that they don't think she'd win it or more significantly perhaps that they think Footpad or Wicklow Brave will?

I have two theories:

A) She isn't working well enough to go to the CH or WH (still an option but unlikely). Which clearly would be a negative.

B) As WPM wins this for fun, they are worried Liminis last run wasn't true form, as wpm has hinted in interviews. Maybe they think Liminis no sure thing VS AJ.

I agree Shrews, our race has held up (for the moment) with 3 fascinating runners. The market dosen't like Apples Jade with Paddy Power the biggest price 5/1, its rare they are the biggest price on anything at the head of the market.

Very surprised he's going to run both VVM and Limini. Not sure what that means, it's tough reading between the lines. I'm on VVM NRNB on the assumption it would be between her and Apple's, not so chuffed now! Whichever one Ruby picks goes off favourite.

Superb for OLBG that for once this looks a competitive race and one which will get plenty of headlines over the next 48 hours and beyond. I think for what it's worth Apples Jade is being massively overlooked by the market in this one, she's only 2 lengths behind Limini last time out which is far from a distance she couldn't reverse on another day and she has narrowly beaten Vroum Vroum Mag this season already as well. All to play for and 5/1 is too big for me so I've taken that.

Guesses on how much the VVM/Limini/Apples Jade tricast will pay?

Do we think the Willie Mullins will be desperate to blow out of the water Gigginstown after the split? and will therefore keep as many runners in races as possible?
