    I think Cash Back is bonkers enough to go off at a savage pace, burn them all off and has enough of an engine to get home. As long as he doesn’t make a brutal mistake I think he has a good chance.

    I have taken the 10-1 and also backed him for tomorrow at 13-2; I think Townend has made the wrong choice (I am a fan of both Melon and Bapaume and have had both of them in my TTF in the past and particularly like Bapaume’s neat jumping…but I think Cash Back is a more exciting two miler than either).

    Brewinupastorm beating Cepage and Oldgrangewood at Aintree in November is looking a serious bit of form now.

    It was riders onthe storm who beat them at aintree

    If anything wins the irish arkle with any authority tomorrow it wins this imo

    And if something hoses up it’s one for the multis with benie, tiger roll and paisley park

    Notebook has some engine to do what he did prerace and still win after a proper gallop. Worthy Arkle favourite I think.

    Both melon and bapaume got badly out paced there in a truly run race

    They will no doubt be going up in trip

    Was very impressed with cashback battling so hard, when notebook jumped into the lead I thought he was going to win by much further

    Anyone on notebook or cashback at decent prices for the arkle looks to have a cracking chance

    I’m on notebook at 25/1 and will likely have a saver on cashback at some point

    I’m feeling good about my Notebook bet now. Stick some ear plugs etc in at Cheltenham keep the lid on.

    25-1 was a good early spot well done. I only got 6s bit late to the party but much shorter now so all good. Fakir would be better off in the Marsh Chase Cash Back won’t give him any peace up front.

    Hopefully Rachel sits just off cashback and global citizen then picks up the pieces turning for home

    Very hard race yesterday, be very wary of those two peaking again in 5 weeks time personally.

    5 and a half weeks plenty. If it was 3 id be more worried.

    Dunvegan hasn’t grown as much as I thought he might since last year, couldn’t lay a glove on Cash Back and had his final prep race washed away so may well not turn up, but I still like him and his neat jumping style. Took 80s EW in my flurry of b365 NRNB entertainment. All the fun of gambling but if and when your longshots don’t show up, you get your money back.

    An open contest in which it’s difficult to count many out. My two against the field are:

    ESPRIT DU LARGE who has form in testing conditions on stiff tracks.

    ROUGE VIF – Liked this one last season, though wasn’t sure this time until he won my favourite pointer for this, the Kingmaker at Warwick, form which puts him right in the mix here.

    Been backing Brewinupastorm like a loss is out of the question, which isn’t really like me, but this renewal is well within range I think!

    Global Citizen will act as backup. He seems a bit overlooked for a horse with a bit of decent form behind him.
