Outspoken Irish pundit Ted Walsh was less than happy this morning when Channel Four's Morning Line asked a pig to predict the winner of the Champion Hurdle.

The psychic pig has correctly predicted the last five results for Gloucester rugby but the Kildare trainer was unimpressed when the pig picked Our Conor to win today's big race.

"It's pretty pathetic really," he said after the farmyard animal had made her selection.

Ted's reaction got a lot of support on social media with many people unhappy with the segment.

He was more hopeful about his own horse Foxtrot in the National Hunt Chase at 4.40pm with his daughter Katie in the saddle.

"She (Katie) has had winners here for other trainers here and it would be great if she could have one for me," he added.
