WATCH: This Irish dad's reaction to a losing Cheltenham bet needs to be seen

Look at that magnificent stance. Incredible stuff.

Sadly for Dubliner Raymond, he couldn't pick a winner on this occasion - our favourite bit is where he appears to tell his barking dog to "fuck off!" - but he's still an absolute champ for this incredible show of rhythm.

Magnificent stuff.
