I was trying to log on to the forums around lunchtime today, and it couldnt connect, then I got a message saying forum suspended, I was thinking maybe some competitor managed to get the forum taken down?

Hello !

I am astonished to see your username. I thought I was the only person old enough to remember Ribofilio.
If I remember correctly, he was the only horse to have been the favourite in almost every race he ran in and never won one of them ?

Top 2yo of 1968 , was favourite for the 2000 Guineas ..pulled up (nobbled)
recovered enough to run 5th in the Derby , was hot favourite for the Irish Derby , 5 lengths clear at the furlong pole , got "done" by Prince Regent , favourite for the St Leger , Piggott found every bit of trouble in the race , fast finishing second to Intermezzo......and yes , I backed him every time .

Yes, very sad. You are very old, same as me. At that time I was a student at Aberystwyth. Harvey Leader trained a horse called Queen of Twilight and one of his stable lads came from the town. Everybody backed it when it won the Lingfield Derby trial at odds of 28/1, everybody except me. Another tip followed from the same stable a couple of weeks later. I backed it. It came nowhere.:(

No. We will be moving the site to better hosting soon, although I don't have a confirmed date yet.
