Probably a Willie Mullins day but I’m not backing any of them.
1.30 Either Bacardy’s or Neon Wolf, but no bet.
2.10 Bellshill @ 8/1 – No bet.
2.50 I liked the way Kalaondra won lto but also the way he’s performed all season. Top jockey Noel Fehily on board again and @ 20/1, 5 places, I’m on.
3.30 No point expecting anything other than a Douvan win.
The race behind him could be an interesting one though and I’m on a couple of big priced outsiders for the places. Top Gamble @ 50/1 and Simply Ned @ 80/1, both Bet Victor. 1/5th odds, 3 places.
I think the bookies have passed these over to easily, they are better than that, looking at the rest of the field.
4.10 Sausalito Sunrise @ 14/1- No bet
4.50 Fadas 33/1 @ Stan James ¼ odds, 4 places. A small e.w bet here. Went off a hot favourite last time and would of finished a lot closer than 3rd but for reaching at the 2nd last. First time Cheek pieces.
5.30 Someday @ 8/1. No bet.
2.10 Acapella Bourgeois
2.50 Tin Soldier
3.30 Gods Own - without Douvan
4.50 Divin Bere
5.30 Fayonagh / Irish Roe
SKIPTHECUDDLES - Will win more races, but possibly not at this level. Happy risking the 66's.
4.10 KINGSWELL THEATRE - Cross Country newcomer, but in fair form and will stay at 50's.
4.50 LINGER - Progressing nicely and drying ground will suit. Bits of money around at 25's.
5.30 FISHERMAN FRANK - Genuine outsider at 100's, but bred for the job and kept on well to win last time.
I've been left with too many selections in most races today due to some trading that is, as yet, incomplete, so I'll put downa mixture of the ones that I fancy currently and the ones that I'll win or lose on
130 Neon Wolf (which I've been intending to back at whichever race it ended up in and I think will win today) and an each way bet on 11/1 Shattered Love
210 I'm worried about Alpha des Obeau but I'm stuck with Might Bite which I'm now thinking might not even place. Ew bets on O O Seven at 20/1 and Bellshill at 12/1
250 Tombstone (highly unoriginal) will probably win this . One of the ones that's worked out well for me is an antepost bet of 40/1 ew on Hargam which is now 14/1 and I'm on Perigrine Run at 12/1 which drifted but is now contracting again. At a big price (currently 40/1) I like Waxie's Dargle. I backed it last year when it finished 6th at 33/1 but that doesn't tell the whole story as it was one of the only horses staying on up the hill and missed out on fourth place by a head or something and was always closing on the leaders. I did have a look at the form but can't bring it to mind at the moment but I think it's about at the same mark now as it was on that last race.
I'll break off as we're close to the first race
PEREGRINE RUN at 9's
MORELLO ROYALE at 100's
SURE REEF at 40's
