    Plenty GN horses entered that won’t be running , 2 punts ,
    I’ll be tickling Stattler after his complete no show yesterday , he hated it but didn’t get very far , the other that interest me is Ballygriffin cottage , he looks to be coming back to some of the form he showed as a novice

    imo Stattler is best in smaller fields and left handed.

    Kittys Light will have longer to get over Aintree than Ayr last year.

    Kitty’s Light 6-1 and Inis Oirr 20-1 are my ew’s at the moment.

    Stattler made noise yesterday HDLG- despite a tongue tie.

    Main two for me at this stage are Hidden Heroics and Ontheropes

    I’ll bet Ontheropes if he goes to Ayr, but I’ve already bet him for this. Stablemate Minella Cocooner fairly interesting too

    Hidden Heroics is very ground dependent, but forecast not too bad looking, and if he doesn’t take in his engagement at Cheltenham this week, then I might take the 33’s

    Cracking run from Moroder today, and I could definitely be tempted. Was in great nick this time last year too. 33’s looks big to me, even with the short turnaround.

    Hidden Heroics ran today, and I was a wee bit disappointed

    Mentioned Minella Cocooner on the National thread, and added him at 28’s.

    Hoping not to see Ontheropes declared for Ayr tomorrow.

    Cashed in Inis Oirr as ran today.
    Thought they might come here as best form right handed.

    You’ll be lucky, Admin.
    The Cash Out King is not subject to the same rules as the rest of us.
    He need only say those immortal two words in order to cancel any ante-post bet.

    With Kitty’s Light’s main opposition Desertmore House now out, last year’s winner looks value at around 4/1. There doesn’t seem many progressive types in the race this year.

    My ew 2…

    Kitty’s Light 6-1
    Minella Cocooner 12-1

    Thought it might be handy to have a Mullins one as well.

    Amirite will finally get his ground as long as the clerk doesn’t go mental with his watering

    Got some sympathy with the clerk at Sandown.
    There’s showers around pretty much all week, but they are only showers and that chance of a shower isn’t for all day and night either. So if Sandown misses them completely it would be very firm without watering… But if they water and get some heavy showers it could still be soft. Difficult decision on how much to put on, don’t want to leave it too late otherwise it could be slippery.

    Weather is far less of a problem with Kittys Light after producing a personal best at Aintree on pretty soft ground (imo somewhere between good-soft and soft). Am also on Minella Cocooner @ 21/1 and it shouldn’t be a problem for him either judging by his form in Grade 1 novice hurdles last year. But is yet to race on anything other than very soft conditions over fences. Probably just a coincidence. Hopefully won’t put too much pressure on his jumping. Is also entered in the Grade 1 Ellier at Punchestown but surely this would suit him better? Although if there is no way of Skelton or Nicholls catching him, maybe Mullins will stay at home? :unsure:
