Depends how she runs I think Barney. Her breeding suggests sheíll get further than a mile so she might run in the French Oaks or even over 1m4 in the English or Irish Oaks.

Think I'm going to lump on the Guineas.
Skybet 10/1 for that and the Oaks is tempting also.

Galopin Des Champs is a freak. Quick reminder that he won the Martin Pipe here off 142. Thatís the kind of shit that got Ronan McNally warned off for a decade and more.
Was 8/1 SP for that race too. Next race 13/8; Friday was the next time he didn't go off odds on!

Incidentally, Noble Yeats and Corach Rambler joint 8/1 favourites for the Aintree Grand National next month.

Looks a very strong field for the national, tempted by a few in the top 10 in the market. Not much of an Antepost fan so will wait to nearer the time though.

I think Noble Yeats will take some beating. He ran a lovely race in the Gold Cup and back up in trip I think heíll run a huge race.

Yep, not a bad thing if you can use the GC as a prep run, donít think it will be far away. Another might be Royal Pagaille if the ground is soft enough, was nearly took out at the 17th and ran on to be 6th again, definitely worth a couple of £ ew at a good price.

I really need Ashtown Lad to make the cut on Tuesday. I seen it win in the Bechers in December at Aintree . I've been throwing my free bets on it for a month or so and when I have a win I've been doing it again. Most are on the machines in Billy Hills at 33/1 as it's NRNB but the others are 40/1 on sky

I don't really know about a place that can show you the ins and outs. Just by watching racing, looking at the form, the classes, the ground, the handicaps etc should give you a basic idea.

If you want to look more at statistics it's worth looking at something like adrianmassey.com

Royal Pagaille Runs in the Irish version today and is into 10s from 20s last week. Bit surprised given the rain here today and forecast this week but have used the money back from Aintree to back ew.

Monkfish is back today over hurdles. Obviously just a pipe opener but 4/1 is tasty if he is anywhere near ready and retains ability.

Ran a good race, another couple of furlongs and he wins that handy enough. Thereís still plenty under the bonnet. He travelled really nicely.

On the flat Slipofthepen looks really good for Gosden.

Bravemansgame isnít allowed to run now. John Dance is under investigation for something or other, I donít know the ins and outs but since he owns half the horse the other half canít run.

Yep just posted that in the Aintree thread. Looks like Dance or at least some of his companies are being investigated by the FCA. Iím guessing but presumably Bravemansgame could be considered an asset and is worth more alive than dead, which thereís obviously a higher risk of happening if he runs?

Half of Constitution Hill might win tomorrow  :D  Is there any chance that going up in trip will affect him in any way, or are we expecting a double-digit length margin of victory? He left Epatante 17 lengths behind at Kempton, and State Man, an excellent horse, got left 9 lengths behind of course last time.

Will Shiskhin turn up or frustrate punters again?

@Gerry, I remember you were not overly impressed by either Stage Star or the race he won at Cheltenham, do you think he has the measure of others in the opener?

I would say tread carefully with any horse than ran at Cheltenham. I just find it hard to come around to horses that were found wanting at the top level over hurdles when they go over larger obstacles. I like to see quite a bit of evidence before I believe it. He also got a soft lead in the Turners with a 40/1 poke and never came back. Banbridge for me.

Cheers. I also like Banbridge to be honest and Ahoy Senor to defeat Shishkin, although it would be lovely to see A Plus Tard come back to form. The last 3 races are proper cavalry charges!

Bet Victor have Constitution Hill at Evens to win by 25 lengths or more; you get almost the same price for 10+ lengths on the Exchange  ::)
