    Runs today at Haydock over 2m4f in bad ground I believe

    Yes but they will also send something here. You have to go back to 2011 to when Gigginstown didnít have a runner in the 4-miler, many of which go on to the Irish Grand National anyway. We know Gigginstown also love their Nationals, they turn up mob handed every year. Be interesting to see mark.

    That's why I've had a small bet if he wins he should shorten and if he didn't impress hopefully I can cash out for a small loss.

    I had a little punt at 40-1 b.b.b - r.sa , Given that the O'learys decide where they go.

    Chris’s Dream makes his Chase debut for HdB at Navan tomorrow and he was the other I had shortlisted for the National Hunt Chase along with Blow By Blow and It’s All Guesswork. It’s a pretty decent race over shorter than I think he needs so I’m looking for a good round of jumping primarily and then reassess whether he gets backed or not.

    Found the Albert Bartlett a bit too much last year. Was well fancied / backed in the days leading up to the festival if memory serves... although I have a niggle that it was ground related?

    The Albert Bartlett was a bit much for him on his fourth Hurdle start but he’s always been a staying chaser. He looks to prefer softer going but won his point on Gd/Y.

    Neil Mulholland was on the Jumps Racing podcast. Confirmed again that Impulsive Star will have another crack at this race BC.

    His big target will be the 4 miler again. He'll be a year older when he finished 4th in it last year. Didn't have the best preparations as i'm sure you're aware. He slipped up at Catterick first time over fences and we were happy to run him but we could never get him exactly how we wanted him. We weren't complaining about it but at the same time we feel he should be better this time. A year older. If he's able to finish in the first 4 last year you'd have to think he'll be competitive this year
    Currently 33/1. Experience will be a plus for him like you say and both Ms Parfois and Sizing Tennessee have done the form no harm. On my radar but i'd like to se a bit more from him leading up to the race and he's a horse where the markets won't cut him instantly. Currently rated 133, i'd want that to improve to really fancy him as he was 21 lengths behind the first 3 that day
