After the 50/1 winner last time (January)... I’ve another horse I like for TWT
at 06:48 7 May 2021

Chester - 2:45 - Cardano @ 9/1 E/W (6 places)

Drawn on the rail which is good. Drawn in 1 round here is absolutely ideal for his forward going style and for this tight dog-like track. He’s a front runner and can set the fractions. He ran well last time at Musselburgh from a wide draw and can reverse form with Themaxwecan whos out widest of all. He’s consistent and the ground should suit. If he stays the trip, and there’s little reason to think he won’t, I can’t personally see him not hitting the frame. That being said, if he did miss the break from 1, it would effectively be race over instantaneously. The 9/1 and 6-places on offer is worth a bet though I would think. It’s a competitive handicap so I can see why he’s as big as he is but if there’s a race that should suit with his style, it would be this if getting that early lead. On the chance of getting that easy lead, and at 9s, it’s worth a play. If he settled into his rhythm up in front and saw out the trip on this ground (both of which I think won’t hurt his chances at all), it’ll take a good performance to come by him as he is game. For a stayer, I like that he has a turn of foot about him which will stand him in excellent stead for the swing for home at Chester. I do like his chances - hence venturing into TWTD to put him up. It’s been a while for one of these.

Good luck anyone who gets involved. Let’s hope we can repeat the 50/1 winner with a nice return at almost a double figure price again. But of course, there’s a huge likelihood of no return. Everyone should know that before placing the bet. As always, good luck and most importantly, gamble responsibly.

Horse today I quite like the look of for those inclined
at 06:37 7 May 2021

Outside of the Cheltenham and Ascot previews.. this was my last racing ‘tip’ on here back in January (though the wilder to be sacked one also won after that tbf to myself). And since that 50/1 horse above won, I’m going to shamelessly put this next horse today on this same thread. Also noticed there’s been a few more gambling threads of late (not by myself I should add) and I know it annoys some people when there’s a lot so I wouldn’t want to overload the forum.

Anyway.. today then:

If he stays the trip, and there’s little reason to think he won’t, I can’t see him not hitting the frame. The 10/1 and 6-places on offer is worth a bet I think.

Good luck anyone who gets involved. Let’s hope we can repeat the 50/1 winner with a nice return at double figure prices again. As always, good luck and most importantly, gamble responsibly.


Edit - That all being said, it’s actually not easy to see the date on the OP and would be much better just making a new thread. So I will.

Only just saw this - apologies. I do agree. Unfortunately the shoes I’d planned to wear had a hole in the toe so my last m8 Ute decision was to wear the only other pair I’d taken with me.

If it wasn’t a last minute trip, I would’ve definitely ordered hiking boots. With the success of this trip, we’ve decided on Ben Nevis in august so I’ll make sure to have the boots for that. We’ve a lot planned before then but no mountains so I’ve plenty of time to find the right boots for the job.

Thanks to everyone for their advice throughout. Much appreciate by both of us. From this thread, we decided on the Llanberis path which worked great.

Funnily enough, during the previously mentioned (see other thread) trip to Wales with my best mate, this exact episode came on the tele on the Sunday night (the 2am repeat as is it’s normal time). My friend was absolutely adamant that this old bloke being on there was a positive for TV by promoting an old man exploring his newfound sexuality. For context, before his wife died, he’d never been with a bloke but now feels like he can allow himself to see men and women alike. Which is cool - good for him. Anyway.. we both agreed how the show has become known for that now - in getting different people of all ages ages, sexualities, shapes and sizes and promoting them.

Whether it’s trash television or not (and it is, and even regular viewers will agree on that), the fundamental idea of being positive about everyone on the show and body positivity is actually a very good thing to put on tv for viewers perhaps underneath the sex talk and genitalia. In a world where the number of Instagram likes can affect teenagers mental health and ‘image’ is seen as the most important thing to young people, this programme actually plays a good role in society in a surprising way imo - especially considering it’s target audience is under 30s.

Rommy’s top tip - Watch it with your mates after a joint and it instantly becomes the funniest programme on tv. The 2am repeat episode nightly of Naked Attraction was must watch student tv at uni throughout my second year in our gaf.

Rotherham win tonight would be nice

Would have Derby in the bottom three with one game left.

Even if Rotherham lose later, Derby have Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday in the last game of the season in what would likely be a winner stays up, loser goes down situation.

The whole trip has done her the world of good - it really has. I’d have done anything really to not have to have her crying down the phone at 3am for a bit. Hopefully this has helped as much as we think.

Thanks to everyone for their advice. Genuinely do appreciate it. A lot of it was taken on board (first time I’ve worn three pairs of socks at once along with 5 layers of top!). Didn’t have hiking boots admittedly. I have a few pictures on my Twitter which I can whack onto here too..

En route Wales for a few days and we were looking at hiking it on one of the afternoons. Worth doing?

If it’s any relevance, I’ve never done a hike before but used to do a lot of running and I’m relatively confident I wouldn’t fail to reach the top.



Edit - And just in case someone’s gonna moan because of covid (hopefully not).. my friend has been having a bad time of things lately mentally so I booked for us to go away as a surprise for her. Yes technically it’s not within the rules for Covid but, in the circumstances, it was necessary. That’s all.

So the previously unnamed state (was unnamed last I’d seen) is now known as Arizona? That’s quite cool.
