Viking Jack Wins Monmore Gold Cup!

A massive gamble was landed as Viking Jack, 20-1 antepost WON the Monmore Gold Cup Live on Sky Sports. It was a HUGE GAMBLE as the price tumbled with Jack as short as 11-10 on the day, he drifted out to 6-4 on the track. Jack did everything right and this is what happened….>

Jack came out of the traps with blistering speed and always lead the field. Airfield Paudie was chasing Jack down but Jack went away and won by OVER 6 LENGTHS! That is amazing in a category one final.

The credit for this must go to Jim Hayton, and his team who trained Jack to the minute. It was just a wonderful evening, and though the gamble was HUGE and we won fortunes, it is was about winning a Category one race. The feeling that gives you can not be described in words. It is a sensational feeling! It was breathtaking and even better to watch on the TV Later!

The plan now is to go for the STEEL CITY CUP at Sheffield. We are Yorkshiremen and we would deary love a crack at the Steel City Cup, but there are plenty of really good dogs at Sheffield and it will be a hard competition. On the plus side the 500m will really suit Jack. He is having a mini break and then will turn his attention to Owlerton stadium.

He was advised at 20-1 and backed at all rates down. Here is a bet one of our members had….


And Finally….

Thank you for all the messages of congratulations, so many and all very heart warming. Thank you to all!

Viking Jack Makes The Final….

Viking Jack made it through to the final of the Monmore Gold Cup on Thursday winning the first semi final from Trap 5….

Once again Jack had to do it the hard way from behind. He has 6 in the final and is now second favourite at 2/1. He was advised at 20-1 to win the competition at the start, can he do it? Come on Jack!!

Jack Through To Gold Cup Semi-Finals

Jack is through to the semi-finals of the GOLD CUP at Monmore and was second by a short head, but was desperately unlucky not to win!!


Jack was advised at 20-1 to win the competition and is now 6-1 with sponsors Ladbrokes. the Semi finals are next Friday with the first two qualifying for the Sky final on 21st August!


Viking Jack Runs In The Monmore Gold Cup

The heats have been drawn for the Monmore Gold Cup which starts on Friday. Viking Jack has drawn trap 6 and has a big chance in his heat. You can see the advance card here.


Pay Freeze is the one to beat at Monmore.

The competition is a category one contest with a first prize of £15,00 so as you would expect a top class field has been assembled and favourite for the competition is sure to be PAY FREEZE. What a dog Pay Freeze is and he is the one to beat. The big advantage he has is he traps. Jack is not the quickest to leave the boxes but he can run and he is definitely a key player in this competition.

Lets hope the bookies underestimate him as  seems the nor at the moment! We will see!!
