Disappointments, reality shows, perfect ending

Mubtadi showed all the planning in the world can go out of the window if the said horse decides not to play ball.

The concerns grew when, having been mounted in the paddock at Wolves on Saturday by Shane Kelly, he refused to walk forward, then unwillingly going on to the track.

The plan to lead went out the window when he once again missed the break. The frustrating thing is the problem is mental rather than physical. It has drove me mad since

The only consolation is that the handicapper has dropped him another 5lbs to 57. It means he can run in a 0-60 at Lingfield on Thursday week.

Him missing the break is being worked on and the idea is to let him think he is king of the castle at home. Tom Brown will ride him (Shane goes to Wolves to ride Autumnus) and will take off a valuable 7lbs.

Betting is now out for Dancing On Ice and those who have read this blog before will know that I would have been delighted to see that Beth Tweddle is available at 3-1 with most firms

Yes I know people are yet to see her skate but I have it on good authority that she is superb. Competition starts on Jan 6 but it's a price isn't likely to get any bigger.

Popularity plays an important part in these reality shows (exemplified by the lack of support for Denise Van Outen in Strictly) and you only have to check Tweddle 's page to see how popular she is.

Also Dancing On Ice is one of the few reality shows where the best contestant often gains success.
