    Small but select entry at this stage….

    If this was after the National weights, I’d be piling into that 66’s, EW on Any Second Now, but it seems unlikely for him at this stage.

    I’ll stick with Delta Work again, and hopefully reunited with Jack Kennedy, he can prove to be overpriced at 6’s.

    I’ve already bet A Plus Tard here at big odds, and as much as he’ll probably pass this by, I’m still drawn to that 10/1.

    If I have a bet though it will be Melon at around 4/1, as I don’t need to bet APT here

    Think Henry said he goes straight to Cheltenham

    Sorry, I meant to say that I’ve already bet him at big odds for Gold Cup

    Delta Work for me too at 6-1. I hope that his jumping has improved, that is my main concern.

    This has cut up again, but Melon 7/2 will be my choice.

    Another for Melon here. Out to 4-1 tonight, that will do me.

    I wasn’t impressed by the yards runners yesterday, so slight concern with Delta Work, but I’m hopeful.

    On his day, The Storyteller is miles better than his odds suggest. I reckon this is nothing more than a quiet spin for him, and I can see him being held out the back, never making a challenge, but I’m not letting him go without a bet when he’s double figures.

    Definitely just one to watch and enjoy for me. Fag papers between these top Irish stayers, could conceivably run this race 5 times and get 5 different winners.

    Cracker and I’ll go with delta work , yard def back to form and I don’t think chelt suits him so might be primed for today

    I think Minella Indo will win but not sure I want to get involved at the price.

    Delta Work clearly has a great chance on last year’s form but his jumping has to be a concern. To my mind it is getting worse.

    I’m torn between Melon and Minella Indo, and I think that they’ll be the two principals here.

    Rather than stick with one of them, I am going with the rev f/c

    The ground is not that bad. I’ve never backed Kemboy before but he likes the track and just didn’t see APT coming last time. Took 3-1.
