Wasnt planning on going but just been offered flights this morning leaving tonight, why not like its cheap enough..
If Dubguib wins the recession is over, and if Go Native wins I'll die a happy man.
My biggest worry now is only having one room/one bed between four, my mate Liam, hes fierce lonely like, I dont want to wake up every morning being spooned you know.
The Irish will have to get a few winners the first day if were to come home winning I reckon, could have 5 tomorrow and then only 1 or 2 for the rest of the week.
PP money back if Dunguib wins, so can have a free saver on Get Me Out Of Here, I'd be surprised if Dunguib was beaten by anything else really, I've been backing him all year at 1/3 so even if he loses, we'll be level for the year, no love lost. I think he'll win on the bridle though.
No point me talking about the Champion, everyone knows how bias I am. Hes the best horse in the world fook it hes a certainty! Small saver on Solwhit, again I'd be seriously surprised if neither win, gutted if one of English horses win that one, our front two in the betting are miles better.
Worried about Captain Cee Bees jumping in the Arkle but he has a serious engine and if he can jump around he should be there at the last. Hopefully anyway. Saver on Sports Line who is miles better than his form at Leopardstown when he went too quick, actually probably go 50/50 on stakes with Cee Bee and Sports Line. Two good horses.
Think Voler La Vedette has the beating of Quevega in the mares. Quevega hasnt ran all year. Volers a very good horse if she travels over well etc.
Big Zeb isnt without a chance in the Queen Mother I think, if he can jump properly, which is a big issue I know, might an idea to back him each way with the faller insurance that some bookies give, will probably be a point or two shorter but worth it with a horse like him. He had Master Minded beaten at Punchestown before the mistake, I think hes over priced.
Enda Bolger will win the Cross Country, but dont ask me with what! Wouldnt lay any of his runners anyway thats a fact.
Rite Of Passage and Quel Esprit two horses I've been backing all year clash in the Neptune, hard to split them, hopefully one wins. Rite Of Passage probably the best of them, its a close one you know.
Shot From The Hip in the bumper, best Irish form. Jockey a worry though I wont lie.
Tranquil Sea in the Ryanair, if hes not favourite he'll be a great price, should be favourite, likes Cheltenham too, jumped fantastic when he won there.
Big Bucks in the World hurdle, no blue peter awards there.
Alaivan and Secant Star in the Triumph, cant have Carlito Brigante at all. Although Alaivan might be better going the other way around and I heard Secant Star had a small setback, it'll be a very small betting race but still cant have Carlito Brigante, that race he won in Leopardstown was the biggest farce with the pace they went up front.
Noble Prince in the County, hes sometimes sticky when he jumps his hurdles but if he jumps well he should be able to cruise into the race, he really does have a high cruising speed, lovely horse. Hopefully he can run well, thats a rough enough race to be coming from the back though.
Gold Cup, Denman. Never been a great fan of Kauto, I'll take my chances with the tank.
In five days time, I'll be sat here, skint, hungover, wondering where it all went wrong and how was it possible to back so many seconds in a row..
Good luck to everyone betting!
