This bamboozled my expectation that the Racing Post block vote would favour BGRB Chairman Lord Lipsey. Unlike many in the bookmaking industry, Hoody can see beyond BAGS racing. William Hill's massive sponsorship has Hoody's fingerprints all over it. ——————————————————————————————————1/4—— Hot Hounds - tips via your mobile 591 p686/1 SAT SOLE BET > WAHOO.S w10-1 2.15 MUSS' NAP IN 60 SECS SUN p686/1 Results Tracktalk Comp Bookies

Rea was the defunct track's GM until six months before its seedy closure. For legal reasons, he cannot speak out for another 18 months. However, he remains bitter and has promised to tell the whole sordid story one day. ——————————————————————————————————2/4—— Hot Hounds - tips via your mobile 591 p686/1 SAT SOLE BET > WAHOO.S w10-1 2.15 MUSS' NAP IN 60 SECS SUN p686/1 Results Tracktalk Comp Bookies

It features 11 opens including six first round heats of the Winter Derby, plus another five minor events. The last of the six heats looks a cracker with local champ Fisher Becks talking on Farloe Pocket, Baltimore Joe, Smooth Honcho and Allfourpaws. ——————————————————————————————————3/4—— Hot Hounds - tips via your mobile 591 p686/1 SAT SOLE BET > WAHOO.S w10-1 2.15 MUSS' NAP IN 60 SECS SUN p686/1 Results Tracktalk Comp Bookies

It is the promoters, through the special licence fees, that effectively funded the Club's legal battle. The prospect of spending another £50,000 on an appeal has no appeal, given Tom Flaherty only wanted to clear his name over a £400 fine following an unfair hearing. Expect fireworks. ——————————————————————————————————4/4—— Hot Hounds - tips via your mobile 591 p686/1 SAT SOLE BET > WAHOO.S w10-1 2.15 MUSS' NAP IN 60 SECS SUN p686/1 Results Tracktalk Comp Bookies
