Lads...Johnny francome is out on his own when it comes to panellists.
I've been to a few over the last few years and Francome is without a doubt the best there is and that goes for Walsh, Geraghty, Yates, Paddy Power...the lot

Davy Russell is brilliant and good craic, Ruby and Geraghty are funny too.

Oddly enough didn't see you typing about how hot any of the other panelists are, just Francome

I'll do a decent write up of the Leopardstown one with Segal and Willie Mullins if you and whoever else cover that one!

Good stuff, I will do this one and as last year send it around. ****ers that never said thanks last year can sing for it!

If you get a chance could you ask Mullins about Samain please. The MC only spoke with the phone guests last year.

Hucklebuck did a great write up from last year. If I remember correctly I think Davy Russell spoke more sense and picked a few winners.

Cheers man, Davy is great at them. Though not sure about his Gagewell Flyer talk...
He is very funny and honest.

I nearly threw something at the stage last year when a few of them referred to Grands Crus as a handicapper when he clearly wasnt.

Nah, they were saying he is just a handicapper, he got Big Buck well off the bridle. Couldn't believe the distain of some people saying he was just a handicapper, he won the Cleve on the bridle by an eased down 10 lengths from Knockara Beau.

Geraghty did say Big Bucks was like buying money.

Around what time will the Waterford preview night finish up? Trying to figure out a way of getting down and back.

The Waterford preview usually finishes around 11.30 or maybe a little later.
It's difficult to get it started on time with the numbers that turn up ........

regarding Francome, I stand over my claim that he's the best panellist around, very few are as quick witted and as entertaining as he is.

when it comes to tipping though, it's worth listening carefully to Davy Russell
last year he gave Hurricane Fly as a dead cert!!!
First lieutenant (7/1) and Cheltenian (14/1) to win the bumper.

three winners from every panellist would make a very profitable Cheltenham. Thye're not all going to give you loads of winners but if you listen carefully you can work out what they're serious about.

Tom Segal is always good for a few decent priced winners also.
