Lol the chap doing the VoiceOver in Boyles called the one before hand, said he will be hard to beat

Top 3 thankfully as he was only 3rd. Lot of work to do - will be looking for a soft heat next week too. He ran shit

Dog doesn't look right to me. As things stand it's highly unlikely he'll win the derby.

Deffo not right TC but he's not far off it. I'd be relaxed enough about it. He's obv got a few problems but he's got 7 days and it's a moderate Derby. It's all about qualifying. He won't be doing it in the flamboyant fashion I envisioned but I have a considerable bet on him and I'm not throwing away my dockets. Please God he gets another handy heat for next week, there are plenty of scrubbers left in there.

A pretty good draw for round 3, no real scrubbers in his heat but the race has a lovely makeup for him.

Taken from http://www.igb.ie/talking-dogs/droop...doubts-remain/

Robert Gleeson reported yesterday that Droopys Nidge will definitely run in the third round of the Boylesports.com Irish Derby on Saturday night be he admits that “we won’t really know until Saturday night how he is”.

Droopys Nidge has been patently short of his best form in the Derby to date and Gleeson reports that the dog was very sore on Sunday and Monday in his lower back and neck. “We had him checked out and the soreness appears to be largely gone and hopefully he will be okay by Saturday”.

Gleeson added that “We can’t gallop him this week and I’ll be honest, if it wasn’t the Derby he probably wouldn’t run on Saturday”.

Droopys ward wouldn't have been one I wanted to face in this heat, will get ahead early and will probably win from the front and that'll leave traps 2-5 vying for space.
Will be an interesting race but droopys definitely won't be anything near 2/1 after it unless he crushes it so I'm kind of hoping for my €100 free bet at this stage tbh.

8:25 for anyone looking to watch.

Anyone who backed Nidge should really be hoping he doesn't qualify tonight. Unless Gleeson is an exaggerating the injury, the dog shouldn't be running at all. There is just something that doesn't really add up because if he is injured, he shouldn't be running. This can be interpreted in a number of ways. There's a possibility that Gleeson thinks he can get the dog right as they go through the competition but I wouldn't be confident. It has been done though. Anyway, as I said, Nidge backers should be just happy to get their money back tonight.

I couldn't resist adding a final two to my kennel for the outright market today. I simply cannot believe the value in the prices for El Flutter and kisses for Cloda. They are available at 66s and 50s in Boyles. I went in to back El Flutter at 80/1 in ladbrokes and I checked the price immediately before I placed the bet. Then after some delay in processing the bet I was informed that betting had been mysteriously suspended on El flutter. What a coincidence. Anyway, I'm still doing cartwheels over getting him at 66s.

Here's your mate not a clue either, we will have to wait for Arazi or tony cascarino to give us their expert opinion on the dogs left.

Laughil blake (100s with laddies, unbelievable price)
Runaway rover 100s
Kilara hey mac 125s
Ecclestone 125s
General wolf 50s


Good luck to all the Nidge groupies tonight. I hope he qualifies as it would be bad for the derby if he didn't.
The only 2 we share from your list romped home tonight

Does it say that you have to put the 100 back on the dogs? I thought you could just put it on anything

Yeah but it's dog money now

And it's actually been quite fun keeping up with the races each week. Something different for a change

Not sure at all about this, went to local boyles to watch race and asked guy behind counter about MBS and he hadn't got a clue either. I am pretty sure Arazi knows the details.

They definitely had no stipulations, not even in the small print, so it must be on anything. The key EV wise is to find the biggest price trading at or close to its 100% price and to back that as you don't receive your free bet stake back:

Examples:
Winner at 1/1 returns 100, Expected Return 50% of 100 = 50
Winner at 2/1 returns 200, Expected Return 33% of 200 = 66
winner at 7/1 returns 700, Expected Return 12.5% of 700 = 87.50

Ps sorry about the selection, he's been running hurt the last 3 weeks. I done in a good chunk on him.
