This is my hard-nosed, objective prediction. Wherever possible I've tried to eliminate all sentiment from the forecasting process (Even though I really don't want the Irish to continue to win the majority of handicaps) and I suspect the predicted outcome will rely heavily on Nicky Henderson keeping Team GB's end up in the battle against Willie Mullins, Gordon Elliott, Jessica Harrington et al.

Day 1 - GB, IRE, GB, GB, IRE, IRE, GB (GB 4, IRE 3)
Day 2 - IRE, IRE, GB, GB, IRE, GB, IRE (GB 3, IRE 4)
Day 3 - GB, GB, IRE, IRE, IRE, IRE, GB (GB 3, IRE 4)
Day 4 - GB, GB, IRE, GB, GB, IRE, GB (GB 5, IRE 2)

Prestbury Cup result - GB 15 wins, IRE 13 wins

In conclusion, I think it will be a close run affair with the Irish holding a narrow lead heading into the final day.

GB need the last 2 today. Not very likely.

Didn’t happen for Team GB today. Ireland totally dominant.

Can't see much changing I'm afraid. I nearly cried when Bleu Berry came past Topofthegame yesterday. Veneer of Charm and Relegate rubbed it in but at least I didn't have a serious bet on those races.

More of the same today.

UK handicapper still giving the Irish a big helping hand.

irishone a question would you back an english  trained horse ? or do you only back irish trained . to me i woulodnt care if a horse was trained in antarctica or timbucktoo if i fancied its chances country would not come into it .

Price is my first consideration
I dont know many of the english crowd
.....i backed paisley and jamie moore on muddle
Only because i was told by groundstaff who are in the game
I lost over 300 on the week
But thats nothing after flights, transfers and hotel
You dont go on holiday to make money
But you are right i back horses i see here mainly

If you wanna make money at the festival it would be very foolish to stick with Irish or English

You certainly need to be watching both
