    I’m not very keen on most of these, and looking through the entries, Honeysuckle looks the one.

    Sharjah is a nice horse, but I don’t trust him to follow up. In that case, I am going to side with Saldier. His last run was highly disappointing, but at 14-1, I will have an each way bet.

    Beacon Edge 16/1 ew for me, I just like this horse. I agree that Honeysuckle should win though.

    Beacon Edge was certainly a big disappointment on Sunday, but I’ll put another bet on here, Saldier 10/1 ew

    I don’t think enough was made of him returning from Colic Autumnal.Meade did say he had to have a lot of strong medication early January and given he was giving a horse like Bachasson 7lbs i’d say they’ll be quietly pleased with his return.

    Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!

    I’ve decided to have a risky bet on Honeysuckle for The Champion Hurdle, so I’ll be cheering her on here.

    At 7/1 I’m happy to give Saint Roi one last chance to show the ability mullins clearly believes he has

    I’ve bet him for The Champion Hurdle, so I’ll stick with Petit Mouchoir. He was close enough here at Christmas after a fair old break, and I think he’ll run well here at a price. One to maybe try and get money back in running with, rather than EW

    Petit Mouchoir 20’s

    A quite tactical race in prospect I think. Petit Mouchoir will have to make it and I’m not sure the pace set will be relentless, should play to Sharjah’s strengths and he will probably be my bet here. Although he’s been a difficult horse to call for me (and many others).

    Abacadabras looks big to me but sure he’d appreciate a really strong gallop more, I’ve got him at 18s for Cheltenham so will be happy enough if he wins without backing him here.

    I just cannot see past Sharjah at 9-4, and I think he’ll back up his win at Christmas

    Saldier 18/1 for me. He surely will improve after his run at Christmas. I think it is a very open race, so at this price I will go for Saldier.

    I’ve bet Honeysuckle for The Champion Hurdle, so there doesn’t seem to be much need to bet her today.

    I’ve went with a straight f/c with Abacadabras

    A second vote for Abacadabras, 10’s looks a great price for “Harchibald Light”.
