Rather silly of me to keep backing horses against EA but I’ll add another. My Arkle bet on Blackbowis probably a bust but still like the horse so will add him here.
Mullins said he could go Arkle but he doesn’t jump fast enough to go with AMK, Energumene and Shishkin. Franco is the likely reliable sweeper-upper there if needed.
What’s left for the Marsh? Janidil not entered. Asterion Forlonge a bit better in the DRF but not much. It’s worth seeing if the extra distance helps Blackbow. He’s by Stowaway- like Monkfish, Champagne “shoulda gone JLT” Fever, and Stattler. He’s out of an Accordion mare- other Accordion mares include Blazing Tempo, who got up the hill at Ballybrit to win the Galway Plate for Willie; Feathard Lady who foaled Augusta Kate; and Miss Pickering the dam of Faugheen.
He’s not as mad as he used to be either.
