1)Most impressive everything: Thistlecrack 2)Most satisfying talked up burst bubble horse that I vehemently didn't subscribe to: Don Poli. 3)Most nerve wracking moments: pre World Hurdle when I look around and see our party ashen faced at the prospect of the next few minutes. 4)Most annoying missed opportunity, not having £100 on Vatour in Ryanair NRNB @ 11/8 AND attempting to put £100 on it @ 1/1 only for it to go to 4/5....which changed my mind. Imo a fit Vatour was an absolute shoe in for Ryanair, their shenanigans were not the most transparent. 5)Most profitable punt: Thistlecrack 6)Most grateful to ure m8 goin on about a horse causing u to have some more on it: Johnn for OTF. 7)Most rewarding experience: after first two days just keeping out heads above water, things just not falling the correct way, but despite this our steely core reminds us that things WILL improve, then BANG, Thursday & sun is shining, all is good & being waist deep in Thistlecrack since Xmas is justified :-) 8)Most edifying moments: Various 60+ guys gettin on daan dans le tent in Best Mate, jeez.
