Bobbin' blademan89 villa loyal spireite_uk any tips for the week and any of you going this year?
I’m not going, but I’m going to the Midlands grand national on Saturday. Tips wise I’m not really sure, but I’ve been on paisley park the last three times, and I’m on him again. If ground don’t go too soft I fancy apples jade, but no value there unless you use her in a double or treble. Who do you fancy in the first race tomorrow? Undecided on Al Dancer, Angels Breath or Elieux De Nutz, Klassical Dream :gr: Win that free bet and it’s a great start.
Gold cup it’s either Native or Presenting Percy with Elegant Escape a nice E/W shout .

Yeah I remember from last year, assume you’ll be betting on it this week?

Fair shout, have Villa not got a game this weekend? I’m undecided, was going to do Al Dancer but he’s drifted from 5/2 to 4/1 overnight so not too sure.

I’m going on Friday, know it’ll be busy/expensive but very much looking forward to it.

Yeah Boro at home but this has been planned for ages. Al Dancer ticks all the boxes. Elieux De Nutz great course record. Angels Breath unproven at Cheltenham , but I think he’s going to be a good horse. Klassical Dream is the unknown but you’ve got to respect it as a Mullins horse. My brother in law went last year to gold cup day. He didn’t enjoy it because it was too busy. Highlight of day was finding a full bag of coke on the floor :).

Yep, looks like I'll be rained off tommorrow so should see it all. Thistlecrack for my gold cup bet , £50 e/w

He’s getting back to his old self race by race, but he’s also getting older. You have to go back to the 1950s the last time an 11 year old won it. Decent price though so I see why you’ve done it. I fancy Native River again, but I’d love to see Thistlecrack win it.

I'm going on Thursday, can't wait.

Agree with villa loyal, Paisley Park wins by half the track and is my NAP of the meet.

Day 1, it's a toughy and I'll have a proper look through once we're pretty clear on the ground and I'm not at work.

At the minute, I'm looking at these...

Supreme - I think I'll put my Skybet offer on Mister Fisher. It's a pretty fucking trappy race though and I can make a case for half the field. Fakir Doudaries 8lb allowance may really tell if it's soft. I wouldn't put anyone off Al Dancer, Klassical Dream, Angels Breath, Elixir De Nutz or Grand Sancy. If you want one at a bigger price, then I think Itchy Feet is massively overpriced at 33/1. If he doesn't mind the ground, then he may spring a surprise.
Arkle - Glen Forsa couldn't have been more impressive when absolutely laying out Kalashnikov. Hardline may get close especially with Davy up, but I can't oppose Glen
Ultima - Up for Review is probably going to be my pick, but Minella Rocco could jump them silly if it's not too soft.
Champion Hurdle - Apples Jade for me. Laurina might get up though it's the wrong side of soft.
Mares - I want to take the favourite on here and I'm thinking Lady Buttons or Roksana.
Close Brothers - A Plus Tard / Cubomania
National Hunt Chase - Discorama / Impulsive Star

Native River will love the conditions if it keeps raining but repeating a Gold Cup is haaard. I know Percy hasn't jumped a fence in public this season, but I find it hard to oppose him. The trainer obviously expects a big run or he'd have given him a tune up. Goes on any ground and has a good engine. Davy obviously knows he's a good horse by the way he rides him out the back, and says he isn't concerned by no run. If Davy is happy, I'm happy. That's where my GC money will be going.

I think Native River lives for this type of race. I’m assuming it will be soft by the time gold cup arrives, so even better for Native. Wouldn’t surprise me if Presenting Percy won because he’s a fantastic beast of a horse. Just cannot see anyone else beating these two. Might Bite ran a blinder last year on ground that didn’t suit , but he seems to have lost his spark. Native River is that good for me that he could do the double.

Who you fancy in the Novice Hurdle?

The only other one getting my attention is Kemboy. The improvement he's shown has been mental.

Novice: Mister Fisher, Al Dancer, Klassical Dream, Angels Breath, Elixir De Nutz or Grand Sancy. So pick the bones out of that lot lol. I find it hard to stick my hat on any one horse. At a bigger price I think Itchy Feet is massively overpriced at 33/1. If he doesn't mind the ground, then he may spring a surprise. I'm having a unit on him regardless I think, then will back AN Other with a bigger stake

I’ve had mates find bags of what they thought was coke on the floor only to find out it was ketamine. :lol:

Kemboy is a cracking horse, but not one I’d put my money on in this race. Yeah just as I thought, it’s a very open race regarding the novice hurdle.

Had this argument with mine last night. She’s a fairweather horse racing gambler, gold cup, National etc etc. She said she wants to pick the horse. Told her to fuck off and leave it to me.
My missus has gone off and placed it without consulting me. £20 on The Flying Sofa on the nose because 'she liked the name'. 250/1

One of my mates did exactly the same but got it at 100/1 yesterday. :lol:

Same here. I’ve got two accounts on go so it’s Elexir De Nuts on one, and Al Dancer on the other. Both proven at Cheltenham and on ground.
Elexir de nutz, 1st race for me with the free £20 on sky
Non-runner lads.
