    Decent card at Punchestown today. Envoi and Asterion obviously the headline act, but I’ll happily not get involved.

    Main fancies are is in the last two races.

    In the last I’m with High Sparrow. Not a horse I had much interest in, but the way he lobbed along in his last two marathons, suggested that he could do with a slightly shorter distance. He gets that here. My main concern is that I thought he’d be perfect for The Leopardstown Chase, and that might be the plan still. I was happy with 14’s. It’s a string race though, and I’ll probably cover. Likely candidates are Out Sam or Minellafordollars.

    In the 1520, I had to go with Princely Conn at 28’s. Bet him a couple of times before, but he’s not really delivered. I happily swerved him last time, but he looked a lot more like it, and it was uncomfortable viewing. I really like him today, big fancy, and I’m hoping he can stay on the right track.

    I had a small Antepost the other day on Magic Tricks for The Supreme, at 40’s. Not convinced he’ll go, and was happy to take a chance at those odds. Decided to have a bigger bet, with him out today, and though the 40’s has now gone, the 25’s NRNB actually makes more sense. No point backing him today.

    In the 1420 I don’t think Duchess Ravenwaves is completely out of it on her best form, and at 50’s, I was happy to take a chance.

    I’m also on the AW today, with Kraka in the last. I’m assuming today is not the day, as the odds look too big, but I’m happy to give him a try at those odds.

    Punchestown
    1420 – Duchess Ravenwaves 50’s EW 4pls
    1520 – Princely Conn 28’s EW 4pls
    1550 – High Sparrow 14’s

    Southwell
    1605 – Kraka 16’s

    Biggest bet yesterday by some way was Pont Aven, and comfortably got my money back in running, and Or Jaune De Somoza got the EW money at 50’s. I find these 2 Mile Handicap Chases tricky, so very happy with that outcome.

    Even happier with The Classic Chase. Decided late on to add Notachance and Achille at 4’s and 11’s, and could enjoy it as they had it between them at the last. The exacta obviously not a massive one, but a wee bonus, and good just to get one on the board.

    Was also money back for Justatenner, having topped up at 80’s, I had put a lay in early, and switched the race off.

    Best Behaviour ran well, and considered laying off at the home bend, but it was a very small bet, and would have been pointless.

    The only disappointing runs were by Tobefair and Geordie Des Chanps. Both well beaten.

    The one that got away was Aramax, as he was freely available at 25’s, eventually winning at 14’s. Both he and Ilikedwayurthinkin remain on the radar after today, and I’m now trying to second guess where they might go, with Aramax very interesting at 20’s for The Grand Annual.

    Really happy with that lot though, and good to keep the run going. Not often I say that in January.

    Really decent days betting, and should have went to work with a smile on my face yesterday afternoon, but the loss of Mohaayed was a hard blow.

    Regular on the threads the last few years, and had some fun following him.

    Was really looking forward to him in this years Pertemps, but not to be.

    Sadly, I know it wasn’t instant, but I hope it was over as soon as possible for him.

    Cheers Grass, chuffed with him, and money back in running, and the EW 50’s for Or Jaune De Somoza as well, so very happy with that.

    Yeah Geordie worth a go, and I think I’ll be joining you with Achille.
