    Braeside goes for a ball of chalk and runs accordingly.

    Shall we open a market on which Cheltenham handicap it will win by several lengths hard on the bridle? 😉

    EDR needs to improve his jumping

    He drifted markedly in the market for his biggest win to date Cork….. :heart:

    He’s also off 148 in ENG so i don’t know which…

    Eklat De Rire raced prominently until his jumping fell apart on the second circuit. What Jerry Hannon described as a ‘small mistake’ early on the circuit looked like a ‘hit it halfway up’ to me, but I’m often at odds with ‘premier’ Irish caller.

    A little upset about not taking the 25s but I’d have had that each way and had a few quid win only today at 13.5 on betfair (put up in my thread) so still happy

    Franco de port ran an absolute belter

    And escaria ten had a lovely run round, all roads lead to Aintree hopefully

    EDR’s jumping was a bit dodgy even when when he won first time out this season in a small race at Wexford. Maybe those field sizes suit him better than the hurly burly of big handicaps like Newbury and today.

    I’m glad some of you got the e.w prices about Franco but watching the race they,ll be disappointed he didn’t win , wonder where they,ll place him next

    No fallers, no unseated riders. Strikes me as unusual for a race of this nature. Not that I am complaining of course.

    Wonder if they’d try the irish national with him HDLG

    Would be a test of his stamina but he stayed well today and that’ll likely be on better ground

    Well done FF, viking and Mike.

    “I’m glad some of you got the e.w prices about Franco but watching the race they,ll be disappointed he didn’t win , wonder where they,ll place him next”

    Longhouse Poet, Franco de Port and Ontheropes are all high enough to get into the Grand National and all jump well enough for it and go ok on decent ground, albeit Franco is only 7. Job done for Escaria Ten, a little canter round and knock a pound or two off.

    Mister Fogpatches for the Scottish National again?
    Coko Beach for Cheltenham presumably.

    Would they really run coko beach against tiger roll?

    Gordon would be gutted if tiger finished 2nd to coko beach

    Well that was the original plan but I just checked his entries and not listed in early entries. Although still in betting market for the race
