So did I for the Will Hill Trophy Plain

Course specialist Merigo looks on a decent mark 6 lbs below his 2nd last year.

Fruity for me too but the owners are also considering the 3 mile chase on Grand National day so wait to see where he goes first. I was on E/W @ 33-1 at the festival and he ran a blinder. I dont normally like backing a horse for that race which ran at Cheltenham but he will have had a good break and if you look back over the past 10 years plenty of winners of the SGN either made all or were up with the pace so he looks ideal for the race. The other one at a price is Benny Be Good who has been dropped a handy 8 lbs in his last 2 races despite not running too badly. This has been the aim all season and his run in the fixed brush hurdle at Haydock reads very well.

Seems a good time to kick start this thread now. Looks like a whole host of runners will come out at the 5 day stage tomorrow and unless Junior runs again after his early fall in the National then it looks like Benny Be Good will carry topweight. As Ive mentioned on a previous thread it looks like we will have good ground at worst with GF looking fav unless significant rain falls which doesnt look likely.
Fruity O Rooney confirmed as a definite runner although its worth remembering that he missed the Racing Post CHase and Grimthorpe because of the fast ground so they will be looking to the CotC to pour the water on.
Any Currency also goes due to missing the cut in the National.
Galaxy Rock looks like going to Sandown if the prices on here are anything to go by although Im sure Jonjo said the SN was its next target so we'll see with that.
Personally I like Benny Be Good. This has been the target since he missed the Skybet due to being rated too high. The trainer thought he could win that off 150 but ended up on 155! However due to a couple of James Reveley special rides and plenty of moaning about his mark he's managed to get him down to 149. Having looked at previous runnings of the race ive discovered that:
In the last 15 years six horses have carried top weight having been rated between 150-140. Three of them won - Belmont King 16-1, Young Kenny 5-2 and Grey Abbey 12-1. Another, Gone To Lunch, just failed to get up at 12-1. None of those horses ran at Aintree. The other two, Earthmover (PU) and Idle Talk (UR when beaten) both did. At 25-1 he rates good each way value.

Of the others Portrait King could be anything and was put away after the Eider for this and I would have been against Harry The Viking as horses who ran in the 4miler at Cheltenham had, up until last year, a poor record in the race. Interestingly that winner Beshabar, like many previous winners, had won at Doncaster. Unfortunately so has HTV so he has strong claims if still in form.
Lively Barron had looked a non stayer before he ran in the 4 miler and will hopefully go for the 3 mile novice chase on the same card.

Cant help but feel this will be a step too far for Ikorudo Road after a great run of late and Knockara Beau on the whole has looked to enjoy hurdles much more than fences as he always seems to belt at least one and Ayr is definitely a track where you need to get in a rhythm.

So for me its BBG e/w and Fruity O Rooney if the grounds no faster than good. Good luck all and see you there!
