I'll be each-way on Tuitchev and a win on Kicking King.

What about you?

You never see Desert Orchid whacking a tenner on Manyoo in Ladbrokes do you?

Didn't see what he backed, but I did see DO opening a bookies shop once!

Backed him at 16-1 to win his first King George - made for a great Christmas.

Preferably one with 4 legs.

The only way Shergar's going to end up at Cheltenham is if he's being sold from a hot-dog stand.

Shergar Burger. Lovely. :yuk:

Shergar would never be in a hot dog, his ass would be in a couple of burgers, if you know what I mean...

I was at Kempton the year that Desert Orchid won his first King George. Wanted to back him but the crowds were so great I couldn't get the money on in time.

Saw him win it the next year too.

I'll be having a pleasant w/e - Mrs A-A always likes it when I send her down the bookies with a winning ticket ...

Good choice a_a. What odds did you get?

Backed him from from 8-1 down to 9-2 - luckily Mrs A-A has a capacious handbag for the slips (four in total), and the winnings!
