    Only got into town late today- my eyes lit on the last copy of the Racing Post magically still there at 4pm- checked inside, yep some wee stoke had nicked the Elliott stable tour pullout out of it. Can some kind soul with a copy let me know what he said about Grangeclare Native please?

    Captain Guinness getting backed like defeat is out of the question but it’s making some nuce ew value elsewhere. Jessie Harrington can train a jumper too and Exit Poll was unlucky to unseat on his first try over fences. He jumped well loose thereafter and has the physique of a chaser. Full brother to Ex Patriot, who doesn’t mind soft ground and was frequently ridden by the excellent pilot on top today. Ground might be a bit soft for some of the rest.

    It’s an interesting race. I saw Entoucas at Down Royal this time last year and thought he was a big bony chaser in the making; and Dis Donc gets another spin though probably win’t like the ground. (Why on earth did Meade start him at Galway where he previously nearly got killed? Give the horse a chance!! Am hoping for a gentle safe clear round from him today).

    One out of 3! Think Robin needs a wind op and a rest.

    Enjoying the racing today. Galvin for Grand National 2022??

    4.45 Chel Getaway Trump 3-1 0.5 pt win

    Too much difference in price between him and Fusil Raffles I think.
    Would love Return Ticket to do it as I watched him a bit last year, but even though his jumping’s improving and ground not too bad, it may be beyond him.

    Meh. Made a hash of 3 and 2 out and coasted home. Return Ticket gave it a good go off the front. Fusil R lovely looking horse.

    15.50 Chel Cogry 6-1 1pt ew

    Doesn’t seem ground dependent and knows the course better than his own stable.

    Not Cogry’s day but he wouldn’t have beaten Frodon. Just super.

    He jumped a bit deliberately but got me the ew return. Pleased to hear the Giggi/deB horse got up, thought he was a goner.

    12.50 Chep Only the Bold 7-2 1pt win

    Out of a mare who produced a couple of good winners and this one cost a few bob after winning P2P.

    Ran nicely but well beaten by a bigger more forward one. Trainer’s 4yo Stargate is one to watch too.

    Hoping wind op has done the job for my next one

    3.25 Chep L’air du Vent 11/2 1pt win
