im really looking forward to the week hes hoping some of us and win a few bob?Happy
4.20 JEZKI
i think my pick can turn the form around back on home soil with a top jock back aboard ..he was beat fair and square at chelts but the jump at the last made the margin bigger than in should of been imo and i think jessie,s horse can get back on the winning trail.
4.55 SNAP TIE E/W
disappointing if truth be told but now has a good 7lb claimer on and if returning to some form has a decent e/w shout
6.40 HARRY TOPPER
a repeat of his grade 2 win @newbury would put kim baileys stable star in the mix here..im sure the trainer is not comming for a day out so im hopfull

Think Reve De Sivola may be the value today at 6/1. This race may turn into a real slog and if it does this fella may be best equipped. Solwhit very short and Quevega has questions to answer both on the Cheltenham run and the form of the Mullins horses.
Report Newmanix April 25, 2013 10:00 AM BST
reve surely likes more cut in the ground and had a harder race than solwhit in chelt. solwhit won in aintree and I find it difficult to see many horses winning at the 3 festivals.  Quevega all the way for me.
Report Deplasterer April 25, 2013 11:14 AM BST
My 3 bankers for chelt were turned over but 2 (Jezki/SDC) thankfully have won this week, so hopefully the 3rd can trump today,Bostons Angel in the La touche.

Much as like Quevega, have to agree with Wildman & steam into the 5/4 about Solwhit, only had a hack canter at Liverpool so should be fine for this. GL.

Wr.........Jesse mentioned the ground being soft and not suiting her horses which she named, but she didn't say anything about ground concerns for Bostons Angel,. But what she did say is that Boston is in great form,and has a big pull in the weights with Ara Boy,Big Shu and the Outlaw........ all aboard Boston now,......but then just after penning her notes Jesse looked out her window, into the gathering gloom, and saw a Mr. R Power stride past and her confidence dissipated, somewhat.......

hi pa,
  im not sure the ground will be the problem ?..i think injurys and the fall at the first may be more of a worry?...but its a fair point pa..did you see my other post pa?..regarding the bumper?..how can a horse that has won a bumper carry the same weight as one that has not?..
Report pa lapsy April 26, 2013 11:24 AM BST
Going from memory quite sure Weld said he is better on goodish ground but results to date says he handles soft.Did he pull him out once due to heavy?
Not sure about the conditions of the bumper Tony,only that the 4 year olds are getting an allowance.Good question.
Report wildmanfromborneo April 26, 2013 11:41 AM BST
It's a confined bumper with no penalties winners of races with a value less than thirty thousand are eligible.

Storm Away looked a filly of immense promise at Tramore,she is a half sister to Bahrain Storm who I think wanted good ground that would be my only worry as ground is desperate.
Report silvergreaser April 26, 2013 11:46 AM BST
Hisaabat was never going a yard in a h/cap hurdle, and to think this horse was r/up to Countrywide Flame in the Triumph and won the 4yo Champion at this meeting last year its sheer cliff nosedive in form is a real head scratcher?, and I think Welds quietly fancied bumper horse Windsor Park was pulled up, so in a nutshell Id be weary of backing Waaheb who was pretty disappointing in his last run anyway.

The Willie Mullins put the punters away comment from yesterday?, how can anyone believe a word that comes out of this guys mouth?

"Robina Mai (Patrick) runs in the Premier Fillies Bumper. She ran a cracker when an unlucky second at Wexford last month. She is a big strong mare who will handle the ground and we will be disappointed if she doesn’t fight it out here. We also run a newcomer called Bluemountainbeach (Katie Walsh) in this race. She is a half-sister to Blackstairmountain and is fit and ready to run. However, she would probably prefer better ground and we might not see the best of her until the summer months".

Bluemountainbeach; Held up in mid-division, progress from 4f out to chase leaders in 3rd into straight, ridden in 2nd 1 1/2f out and soon no impression on winner, kept on same pace inside final furlong to hold 2nd

Robina Mai; Tracked leader, close 2nd halfway, pushed along and lost place 3f out, weakened into straight, 18th of the 20 runners beaten 68L???.
