    VtC that preview is a great read.

    Greenasgras, Abolitionist for me just now at 25-1. I bet him in The Irish Grand National and I would agree with VtC in that he does look like a standout price. I will bet one more but I will wait for day of race

    Well no luck for me with Abolitionist, but I will be having another bet as planned. A Toi Phil didn’t do too badly for me at Galway so the 8-1 with 5 places looks a safe bet again.

    Good luck everybody and I will probably be back in here this sfternoon with another choice.

    Yes, jumps are back :yahoo:

    Another who thinks A Toi Phil is the class horse of the race, and I’m also on Bay of Freedom each way. Good luck everyone :good:

    I’m with A Toi Phil as well + I think I got just about the last of the 8-1.

    A race where you have to have an outsider running for you + I’ll be with Lord Scoundrel as well, especially with the 5 place concession at 25-1

    Lord Scoundrel is an interesting shout Buckers, I’ve been weighing him up myself, especially with the claimer, and it’s hard to forget he was still in contention when tipping up 2 out in this last year. I’ve had to add him to the Trifectas.

    Good luck with him, he’s a nice price.

    Well done VtC and Greenasgrass with Potters Point.

    I was so happy A Toi Phil getting fifth and I think a lot of us got each way money there as well. Well done all

    Thanks Lemons and yes great to see between us all in this thread we backed the first five home. Sorry Raymo I was muttering “Feck off Arkwrisht” as he loomed up with two of mine! Good race and some nice jumping. Good ride by Lisa O’Neill again, no wonder Elliot puts her on good horses…not a bad way to work towards losing your claim.

    Of my other two- Stellar Notion was going backwards from about 5 out. I don’t know if just ground/fitness or being such a big horse whether he could be starting a breathing issue or something. Bentelimar- had a good run, no excuses, just not a very smart bet on my part.

    Thanks Homer and Lemons, and well done Grass too. Great to see plenty of ew money kicking about as well.

    Lol Homer, I wish, but I’ll certainly take it. Grass, I think you’re right about Stellar, as that’s a couple of times I’ve seen him empty like that, and if they can fix it, he’ll be seriously well in.

    Chuffed to bits with Potters Point, and I definitely owe Lisa O’Neil a few drinks again.

    My mistake, O’Neill is amateur not conditional. So claim stays 🙂

    Great stuff Bobby and Greenasgrass, spot on with your assessments :good:
    I know Slowmotion is often held up, but Mark Walsh must have thought she
    would sprout wings in that going from so far back. She made up some ground
    in the latter stages, but I felt from some way back in the race that she was
    never going to get there. She’s decent and one to keep an eye on this year.

    Cracking write up Bobby

    The bet here is A Toi Phil each way in my opinion – as it so often is in these big field handicaps.

    A Toi Phil each way @ 8/1 – 5 places Paddy power

    5 places was vital in the end

    Well done winners

    Well done, Bobby and greenasgrass. It was a cracking finish – good race to whet the appetite

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference

    It certainly was Steeplechasing, cracking stuff.

    I’m happy to have scraped a place from A Toi Phil, + I would be best advised to not mention the other scoundrel which I bet.

    Well done on the win to Greenasgrass + Venture
