        On Wednesday, just before the off in the big one, £100,000 was put on the Aidan O'Brien good thing at 7/4. It ended up second.

        Today, £200,000 was lumped on Japan in the King Edward at 5/4. He skated in.

        Afterwards Derrick Smith said that the win wasn't a surprise, the price was.

        The interviewer: "Did you avail of it?"

        Smith "We did"

          Smith and Tabor are not afraid of big bets, both are former bookies, gambling is second nature to them.

            There's a bet of £160,000 gone onto Lope y Fernandez at 5/4 in the first at Royal Ascot.

            EDIT another £80,000 just before the off.

            FURTHER EDIT and it's beaten by four or five lengths.

              A curious quote from the Racing Post's preview of tomorrow's Irish Derby.

              "Completing the Ballydoyle team is Il Paradiso, who was declared for the race at the request of part-owner John Magnier to bring the number of runners to eight, meaning there would be three places on offer for those betting each-way."

                Ten Sovereigns is Favourite for the Nunthorpe but ITV says that no one is backing it.

                "The Lads" must be on.

                  Battaash by a street. Ten Sovereigns never got close.

                  The winner broke the Course Record.

                    When I was a small boy, (a while ago, admittedly) any bet combining four or more individual bets was called an Accumulator, "Accum" for short.

                    When did this change to "Acca" ?

                      Quite amazing Jonjo O'Neill would give a major interview with the RP and not mention, the owner of the yard and his biggest supplier of horses, J P McManus, has something changed ?

                        Supreme Horse Racing Club suspended by HRI over financial irregularities. None of their horses allowed to run until the suspension is lifted. Sounds like they oversold shares in some of the horses and some members talking of legal action against the management of the club.
