unlucky lockup would have been right there.

I'll either go for one in the first at Aintree or my GN pick.

Morning all

Only 18 Irish trained horses in the GN - well it narrows the field down a bit!!!

My selection is going to be in the 4.15 tho where I had hoped the favourite would be a bigger price - at 7/2 it isn't for me. I made Cloudy Glen the second fav and will put this up EW - I have also backed Kilfilum Cross in the same race (EW), more in hope than anything else.

good luck all

In normal circumstances I would probably be going for one at Newcastle but I think as no-one seems to have gone in the Grand National I might as well go for one there and it is Any Second Now and because of our position in the table will just go for the win.

Sorry for not posting, I got tied up with something and have just got back to my computer. Probably undecided's selection is more likely to score points than mine. I was gravitating towards Gone Mod in the 5.45 Nottingham but it is currently available at 119/1 so probably not really one for this competition, but I was finding it difficult to find an alternative. Thanks again undecided for saving the day irregardless of the result.

I am going to go for Lock Down Luke in the bumper at Ayr. Won its first race at Perth and then looked like following up at Carlisle but got caught by Peking Rose, who of course subsequently finished 2nd in the Aintree bumper last week. Is supposed to have thrived over the winter and its current price of 19/1 on here seems a bit of value. If trained by Henderson or Nicholls would be a single figure price.

Everyone has had a chance to make a wildcard selection so far, so rather than specify any indivdual to make the selection today, I think it should be left for anyone who has an inspiring selection to make a suggestion on here by let us say 2.00 and then we can decide which one to go for if there are lots of suggestions. I know at the moment I am struggling to find one selection let alone two today. Good luck to everyone playing today.

My tuppence worth then:

Mutasaabeq for the guineas
Chil Chil 4.15 Newm
Eeh Bah Gum - 4.25 Thirsk, not won for 2 years but mark is very low, never know with easterby's.
speculative if bigger odds wanted - Troed Y Parc 5.12 Uttox, stepping up markedly in trip on hcap debut.

I'll wait to see what anyone else comes up with before putting one of these up for my own selection.

Report Aquarius May 1, 2021 1:04 PM BST
Undecided, I would be quite happy with Mutasaabeq in the Guineas and quite like Chil Chil as well. At the moment I think I am down to three, Jean Baptiste in the 2.40 at Thirsk, although with a non-runner there are only 3 places to play for. The other are at Hexham with Largy Mouth in the 5.20 which has been well backed and Mill Race King in the 7.55 which is an Easterby horse who I think should apprciate the extra distance and to my eye last time out, whilst it probably could not be described as a non-trier, perhaps a not too bothered if it doesn't do the business today kind of performance. I suspect the latter one will end up being my selection.

Report Aquarius May 1, 2021 2:22 PM BST
I have posted Mill Race King in the competition which of course is an Easterby horse and they have just won with Delgrey Boy at Thirsk. I see that one of your potential wildcard selections is another Easterby horse, so are they going to have a good day or have we missed their winner today. I am quite happy undecided if you are willing to post  the wildcard selection today as my possibles chances of a retutn has been reduced by the non-runner in one race and the other probably reached my short list mainly because of the early backing for it.

A poor effort last week but at least it was an improvement from the first week. Certainly I have to admit that tips out for the lads have been picking some very good selections, but as we all know their hot streak cannot go on for ever, so we need to refocus, concentrate and show what we can do if we really try. I always tend to try and wait to Saturday for making my selection, but I am not sure that is working out so well so will perhaps be more willing to make a mid-week selection in future. Our form may have dipped but remember form is temporary, class is permanent.
