Blaklion is a cracking little chap but , at the weights , is up against it here .

The top one has a good claimer on but no allowance is made for his claim. That reminds me that Frodon is , effectively , carrying a 3lb penalty in The Ascot Chase . His trainer is brilliant at training but a noggin when it comes to the weights .

Early doors it looks like Blaklion , Total Recall and The Last Samuri are there to be taken on . They have been done no favours .
O'Larey must be fuming as Smith looks to have given Road To Riches every chance at the weights but little chance of getting a run ; a veritable Eumenide !

Very interesting . Top Notch could be anything and Cue Card has surprised before .  Gary pulled the bottom chap out of two races last Saturday , he needed to run against Native River to qualify for the National. I can't see him cutting much ice here .
A great race to watch but Coney Island looks too short .

The top chap can motor but will his jumping stand up ?
Native River is there to be taken on .

You can crab every one in some way or another . Our Duke is there to be taken on I feel . A good race to watch .

Grand National Entries

01 Feb 18 12:46
A quintet to keep an eye on from the entries.

O O Seven , despite the admirable efforts of Mr Boinville the o/h has decided to leave this chap on 152 . I expect some improvement after 13/2/18 .

Silsol , probably not off when last seen but jumped really well . "you cant keep them covered up forever " said his trainer after Rocky Creek won that valuable handicap . He is right .

Flying Angel , running poorly but his form behind Top Notch makes him of interest off of 148 .

Virgilio , thought good enough for open racing but has been running badly . It might pay to be like Dante and follow Virgil . Coming soon perhaps .

The Young Master , my guess is that he is 70th on the list . If I am correct he will be lucky to get in . A win in a small event could take him into the low to mid 140s . Engaged on Monday next in the Noel Fehily H'cap , ridden by , Noel Fehily!!! . The horse is well handicapped at present .

I think The Young Master needs a good run here to get him in the National . In fact he needs to win .
L'Ami Serge has to be taken on . He is not that well in and is plenty soft enough.

Arctic Gold +4
Pressurize +6
Dream Bolt +7

The top chap could be dropped in. Key are his last two runs . NB Kelly could not claim her 3 in those races , she can  here . To shore up the rating look at his form with Champagne Classic. Also the yard was out of form until late December . Ideally I would like to see Arctic Gold and Pressurize drop out but value there is in abundance at 6/1

Ascot/Peter Marsh Saturday

Forest Des Aigles +6
Fortunate George +6
Minella Daddy +7
Robinshill +9

If Tenor Nivernais wins this I will give the game up. Guitar Pete is no value at all. The top chap is as dodgy as a three bob watch and Shantou Flyer might be soft . Fortunate George has jumping problems . Minella Daddy hasn't been seen since 2016. Lay the bottom pair and have a shilling on the top one I suppose.
Good luck!
