RPGTV to feature Ladbrokes Golden Jacket and Shelbourne Gold Cup
Reading Time: 3 minutes

RPGTV will take it first step into daytime racing transmission with coverage of the Ladbrokes Golden Jacket following that up with evening coverage of the Shelbourne Gold Cup on Saturday 6th February.

The Ladbrokes Golden Jacket has been a Saturday morning staple at Crayford for over 30 years having first been staged at Harringay during the 1970s when it sporadically featured as a horse-racing substitute on ITV.

It is the most valuable off-course betting industry competition and, apart from a four-year flirtation with an evening final which ended in 2019, has had an iconic Saturday morning role since its inception.

As a result, RPGTV coverage has been restricted to the first round only in previous years but the whole competition will now be covered in its entirety on three consecutive Saturday mornings, February 6, 13 and 20. Trial stakes for the £17,500 Category One event begin over the 714m course this Saturday evening, live on RPGTV.

The Shelbourne Gold Cup, known as the Best Car Parks Gold Cup in 2021 for sponsorship purposes, was first staged in 1998 when won by the Denis Shanahan-trained Real Branch and quickly established itself as the leading early-year competition.

Run over the 525 yards course at Shelbourne Park, it is regarded as an ideal starting point for leading four-bend greyhounds and has been won by legendary names such as Paul Hennessy’s Late Late Show (2001) and the late Seamus Graham’s Mineola Farloe (2006). Hennessy is the competition’s leading trainer with seven victories, while Liam Dowling has won two of the last three renewals.

The 2017 staging was abandoned at the semi-final stage as the first high-profile victim of a dispute between the then Irish Greyhound Board and the Dublin Greyhound Owners and Breeders Association over the announcement of the closure of Harold’s Cross.

Kevan Moretti, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GTV commented: –

“RPGTV powers on with a set of top class racing in the first week of its new High-definition transmission platform being launched, and there are further announcements still to come.  Breaking into daytime racing coverage is another first and we look forward to our audience relishing RPGTV’s expanding schedule.

Following on from RPGTV’s coverage of the Irish Derby last year we are delighted to have racing back-on from Shelbourne Park featuring as a Saturday evening feature in the first week of our HD output.

Ger Dollard, CEO of Greyhound Racing Ireland, said:

“I’m delighted that the Best Car Parks Gold Cup from Shelbourne Park is the first Irish greyhound racing competition to be featured live on RPGTV in 2021. It promises to be an excellent night of racing and we are delighted to be delivering live competitive greyhound racing from Ireland.”

Ian Smyth, Director of Racing for Crayford’s owners, Entain Group, said:

“We’re delighted that the extension of RPGTV’s coverage means we’ve been able to retain the traditional Saturday morning slot for the Golden Jacket.

Current circumstances mean betting shops will be unable to provide coverage this year, but this announcement ensures that a great and long-standing event remains accessible to all.

The staying division has thrown up some fantastic racing in the last 12 months and we’re sure to see some stars at Crayford in the build-up over the next two Saturday evenings and the following Saturday morning when the main event kicks off.”

RPGTV executive producer Clive Lawrence said:

“Saturday morning action from Crayford and Romford is expected to become a firm favourite with not just our regular viewers but perhaps also some new ones captivated by the action in their living rooms at breakfast, or maybe brunch, time.

The show will also welcome increased viewer interaction with a new weekly competition being introduced, while the other main sporting action of the day will also be featured.

Of the Shelbourne coverage, Lawrence added: “Our ambition is to bring the best quality racing from both sides of the Irish Sea and the first big night for Irish racing in 2021 is the final of the Best Car Parks Gold Cup from Shelbourne Park. Covid regulations permitting, we will have a reporter onsite for interviews.”

A GAME OF TWO SCARVES: JAMIE REDKNAPP INVESTIGATES THE TRAGEDY OF HALF-AND-HALF SCARVES IN FOOTBALL

A GAME OF TWO SCARVES: JAMIE REDKNAPP INVESTIGATES THE TRAGEDY OF HALF-AND-HALF SCARVES IN FOOTBALL
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

New Paddy Power series sees Redknapp chance his arm as documentary maker to learn about the origins of one of the worst things to happen to football

Footballer-turned-pundit, Jamie Redknapp, is now stepping into the world of hard-hitting documentaries to tackle one of the biggest issues in the modern-day game…the half-and-half scarf.

Paddy Power’s Jamie Redknapp Investigates is a new series that will see the former Liverpool and Spurs legend get to the bottom of the things that really annoy football fans about the modern game.

Episode one sees Redknapp get to the bottom of half-and-half scarves – the ghastly neckwear issue, described by fans he interviews as “Filth”, “Foul” and “So sh*t”.

In the first of a three part series – with episodes two and three released over the fortnight – Redknapp reveals the industry is now worth “over half a billion pounds” and tracks down the inventor of the half-and-half scarf.

The inventor, Brian, explains that the inspiration behind joining two separate scarves together was his own divorce, after his wife cut everything he owned in half.

Sewing his Arsenal and Holland neckwear together, Brian created the world’s first half-and-half scarf – which rather unfortunately reads “Arse land”.

But, at what cost? “Half-and-half scarves have a very short shelf life,” says Redknapp’s next interviewee – environmental activist, Lisa.

Discarded items can unfortunately find their way into nature, with Lisa reporting sightings of a baboon wearing a scarf featuring Tony Pulis at one end Sean Dyche at the other. Although Lisa does say that there aren’t health implications for the animals, they “just look really stupid”.

Redknapp then returns to see Brian once more as he’s told there’s a gift waiting for him. And, after showing off his diversified portfolio (including Manchester United and Liverpool half-and-half facemasks), the inventor gives the former England international his present.

Unfortunately, the Redknapp edition scarf features Harry at one end but the wrong Jamie at the other – Jamie Vardy.

Episode two of Paddy Power’s Jamie Redknapp Investigates, released next Friday, will see Jamie taking on Twitter trolls.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Forget diving, dodgy VAR calls and people leaving early – half-and-half scarves are the biggest disgrace in football right now. So, we put our best man on the case to investigate and uncover the ugly truth about this scourge of modern football that we know annoys all proper football fans across the country.

“Because there are some things that just don’t look right together, like pasta and ketchup or Tottenham and trophies.”

The full video can be viewed on Paddy Power’s YouTube and Twitter  pages.
