    Can’t believe that,with all the short priced favourites this year my nap is in the bloody Foxhunters,but I just cannot see ON THE FRINGE getting beaten!

    Won doing cartwheels last year,will have the best jockey on board and has any amount in hand over the others,as long as winning at Cheltenham,Aintree and Punchestown last summer has not bottomed him.

    Never in doubt eh? :unsure:

    Have to admit I was bawls deep on this one (including in a double with Don C)and,while I am usually quite conservative with my celebrations,I was doing a jig of delight across the club lawn when Nina got him home. :heart:

    Never again will I be lumping on like that,I must have aged 10 years during the race!

    We’ll get a little fun wager going TAPK? Don Cossack wins you donate to a charity of my choice and Vice Versa?

    Now to pick which charity you’re going to be paying to for me :yes:

    Never one to resist a private wager Fran….Both horses have to finish race though as for the 3rd time this season we wont know who ‘Would/should/could’ have won.

    Time’s drawing nearer and a cracker instore especially if Vautour turns up but he’ll not have enough in the heat of the battle to hold of our 2 stars 😉 .
    50 enough of a little wager for you TAPK? I’ll stretch to 100 if you want but anything more would be getting a bit much for me as i’d never even bet more than 2 or 3 hundred on any horse(might have that on him next week on the rails) so not going to go too mad on a fun bet albeit for a good cause whatever either of us choose.

    Come on the Don :heart:

    Looks like we’re not going to get the showdown of all showdowns after all :negative:
    Punchestown going to be a bit of an anti climax for me, i was really looking forward to this race and to getting to see Thistlecrack in the flesh for the first time and now neither will happen.
    I might just watch it on TV now. Mind you that could change soon enough once the initial disappointment of Dons injury wears off. :unsure:
