    It’s early doors yet but when the man who first tipped One For Arthur and the man who second tipped Tiger Roll both mention a horse for the Grand National it behoves me to listen, so my first speculative bet for next year’s National is Missed Approach.

    Also, he may not be going to win five Gold Cups at any point soon, but Elegant Escape looks like the sort of horse who’ll stay and stay and stay, so he’ll be carrying some of my money, too.

    Tiger Roll? 100s for the Gold Cup is silly, and he’s worth an each way punt for that. If he were mine, that’s where I’d send him. Right now, he’s not going to be on my shortlist, but I fear that, if he runs at Aintree next year, I won’t be able not to back him.


    If you could see the wreck I am these days
    You'd have new reasons to stay away
    Just hold my hand for a little while
    Misery never goes out of style

    I don’t think I would want a bet in this until The Autumn, but I have 3 on my mind right now.

    Ballyoptic 66-1

    Thomas Patrick 40-1

    The jumps returning today has got my imagination running towards next April. Naturally got a longlist to stew over for the next several months…

    Ballyoptic – will probably cool on him as I’m unsure how genuine he is, but looks a marathoner in the making.
    Rathvinden – was gutted he got withdrawn after his Cheltenham win. Will very much like his chances should things go well.
    Ultragold – will he stay? Won’t have any troubles with the course and is more a loyalty selection as he’s done plenty for me over the years.
    Ms Parfois – was my sure thing of the Festival, but was just denied. Has that battling quality one likes in a National horse.
    Ziga Boy – could be a forgotten horse. Looked like a proper National type a couple seasons ago.
    Whisper – might need to drop a pound or two, but is a class act and has this written all over him.
    Un Temps Pour Tout – could have been a Gold Cup horse had things gone better. A really likable type who should stay and jumps wonderfully.
    Houblon Des Obeaux – I’ll never give up hope! If he’s as well handicapped as he was this year; I still reckon he’d go close! That said he does need to get in… And get the ground.

    Peter, I’ll be keen to be with Ziga again if they can get him back, and last update I read was that he was on track.
