    Cyrname, and Samcro the headline acts here, along with Tiger Roll…..

    If old Tiger went here, and he was a price, I’d stay loyal, but you’d have to be cautious on last season’s evidence.

    Chris’s Dream is a nice horse, who might get overlooked in the market, but the one I really like is Milan Native. I loved the way he did it at Cheltenham, and no disgrace to see him pushed close last week by Discorama. Not saying I’d be betting him right now, but could progress, and could have a decent season.

    I saw the title and thought What race is this? Oh. The JNwine.

    Wot no Road to Respect? He’s only 9. Last heard of in January out for the rest of that season with a “setback” (I know I’ve said it before but I hate that maddeningly vague and mimsy term. Could mean stubbed a toe, could mean all its legs fell off).

    I reckon Delta Work could do it if the ground was half decent. Jumped rubbishly last year but I think he was lame after IIRC. Trouble is, if the ground is decent that would suit Cyrname. (If it’s deep Cyrname won’t show I expect).

    I expect Samcro will go to the second season 2.5m chase, why make it hard for him?
    Kind of interested in Tout Est Permis. He ran 10 times in his 4/5 yo season, mostly over fences. Takes a fair bit of getting over probably. He’s still only 7. His chase mark is way higher than hurdles mark though so a nice canter round might be the order of the day.

    I want to see Tout Est Permis bounce back Grass, last season was a waste, and I’ve not given up on him myself.

    Be good to see where he’s at, tomorrow at Punchestown.

    My main hope Milan Native runs tomorrow, so time for a rethink.

    The head says any three of Delta Work, Presenting Percy, or Chris’s Dream, but not sure what price they’ll be.

    I’d bet Tiger Roll if he goes, but will he run here after his spin on the flat the other day? The way it’s going, I’ll probably end up with The Storyteller.

    With a good few runs under his belt, The Storyteller very interesting at 13-2, but no bet for now.

    Id like to back chris dream but 3/1 doesn’t feel very appealing

    I’m in the same boat FF91, I don’t like to bet at that price in a tricky race like this, but I think he could land this, and he’s out to 4/1 now, so I’ve taken that.

    I agree with you Greenasgrass, Tout Est Permis is very interesting too.

    That 4/1 has tempted me in too

    He goes so well fresh i think he has a great chance to outrun those odds

    I think Chris’ Dream will win but happy to watch rather than bet him at the price

    I’ll go for The Storyteller at 7/1. Too many doubts around the favourites and The Storyteller has shown his good form recently.

    I’ll kick myself if he did it, and I wasn’t on, so I’ll join you DBR, especially as it’s BOG right now.

    The Storyteller 7’s

    If it heaves it down I might back Tout est Permis, if not then I’ll leave well alone expecting Delta to win on anything better than soft (I’d put a line through last year’s run, his jumping was too bad to be true and I think he was found to be lame after).

    I’ll take Tout Est Permis here, I think that 14-1 is fair, and he has a promising run under his belt
