I don't mind it really, you enter horses to win really and you might as well put in what you think has the best chance of winning. Yes I did have Delta Work backed  ;D

Tiger Roll has finished a mile clear of third. They didnít need to run a Grade 1 winner up against him to win that race. He deserved better than them doing him dirty like that.

Thatís a real shitter. Thereís no sentiment in racing and a win is a win but theyíve put in one of their best and collared one of the best horses of the last 20 years as a result. Leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Agree. Load of shit that. Gutted for the horse.

My Cheltenham has been a steaming turd so far, hope my luck improves tomorrow. The sudden change of ground seems to be a major factor.

Absolute shambles the ground, now the last race may be called off?

EDIT: Looks like they are diverting part of the ground...

I think the ground may swing it towards Bob. I know GDC stays 3m over hurdles but Bobís got such an engine and has the better form on whatís likely to be be terrible ground.

Hope we at least get the contest we hope for

Yep left Dinoblue alone as well

I donít fancy him personally and if Allaho is in the same form as last year it wouldnít matter if he did. But with the ground being the way it is you never know. Iíve taken a chance on Eldorado Allen ew
Edit: although with the non runners itís only two places now which is annoying

Yep no blame on Townend there, horse just buckled on landing. Sums up my week really. Although I picked Bob in the comp, Iíd backed Galopin for this ages ago when he was supposedly heading for the 3m race. Would have been a very nice return

Still on we go.

Edit: Rachael apparently wasnt happy with Bob today according to Henry De Bromhead
