    Nothing went right for SE today, and everything fell right for Barry. SE by far the better jumper and I feel he would have been hard to pass having pinged the last.
    BHA handled it disgracefully and contradicted themselves. Lynche should have jumped the last anyway (the half that wasnt blocked) . Barry would have followed, as would the remainder. What then??

    RT won’t act on the course and is much better fresh. Lay for me. Although NP has had an average enough season, I have no doubt that this was always the aim and will love the drying ground, he will do pour moi. Lost me tits today. Had a huge double goin on Sizing. Love Chelts me.

    Backed Trif myslelf and felt he would have won but for slipping round the home turn. Add to that having a pig of a jockey on board and the horse done himself justice and is the one I’d take outta the race.

    Barry gave him a breather round the home turn. Was plain to see. Murdered them and was in no way flattered.

    Red Riot, he would destroy Sizing Eur. I hope he will stay a trip now, becuse tbh, the 2 mile div is quite boring these days. He will easily reign supreme over 2m for years to come. But what joy in that. Whereas, the staying div looks to be really exciting next season. Extremely exciting. Long Run, Grand Crus, Last Instalment, Sir Des, Bobs Worth, Peddlers, Al Ferof, Hidden Cyc, Boston Bob (if stepped up), Dynaste and im sure there will be one or two more that I have left out ( ive had a few brews) Hunt Ball???
    Anyway, Id love Sprinter to be involved with that lot next season.

    I would guess Colour Squadron as Pricewise. I’m warming to him and Trifolium emmensley.

    Yea, 2 significant jockey bookings. Davey said in a preview night that he really liked Midnight Game, but would switch to Trifolium if MGs work didnt improve significantly (WM reported that he did a bad piece of work last week).

    Ruby plumps for Prospect Wells. What does this tell us. A: PW is working like a goodun at home or B: Mullins is sending dirt over for this race.

    I’d be siding with the latter.

    His jumping doesn’t concern me half as much as the quick conditions. I suppose one will effect the other, so if your worried about his jumping on his favoured soft surface, you ought to be very concerned on quick ground.
    He may well place, but I can’t have him to win unless there is a downpour, which seems unlikely.

    Michael O’Leary should immediately take BW out of Matins yard. He can’t keep a horse straight. The horse has great potential, but he will ruin him.

    Nope, Tom Scu was unseated after GC knuckled whilst schooling yesterday.

    This race really is a terrible betting heat now. I realy like First Lieu under these conditions, but he is too short on what he has shown this season. Bobs Worth will stay all day, but if they havent sorted his jumping out he is goosed, and so is too short based on that imponderable. I backed SDC for the Jewson at 8/1, so really hopes he runs there, but if he does go here, I will certainly be backing him again. I agree that Join Together is too slow. Lambro might place back on better ground. I think he will reverse form with CTP anyway, but still wouldn’t be too confident and he can’t win. I think GC will run here rather than the GC and so is a very worthy short priced fav.
    If GC and SDC defect, surely the weakest RSA in a very long time.
    If both run, SDC.

    I hope he does. Horse will be clobbered = bigger prices for the remainder. Kings horses are going to be overpunted due to the stables form over the past 2 months. OTT!!!!

    I like Clonbannan Lad a lot in this. Have a look at his last run, where he smashed a well touted Mullins horse. Although both wins came on soft ground he won a point on good ground. I presume they will stick with Mikey O’Connor, and this is my main concern. A decent jock, but I would prefer to see a strong pro in the saddle as the race can get very rough and a calm confident head is a plus. 16/1 is generous. He would be half that at least if in a bigger yard, based on what he has shown.

    I have looked at a few of her races and have to agree she is very interesting. Regular pilot will be on board (not many could boast that) and she has a weight allowance. 50/1 NRNB is far too big, so I’ll be dipping in/ Small stake mind.
    It was Last Instalment that was in behind.
