    Tony Keenan touches on this:

    I'd just add that Trials Day may be informative in terms of ground and that the recent report on last year's fatalities will almost certainly mean that they'll be aiming at softer ground than in previous years.

    I'd say ante post, I'm looking for bigger price than SP on my fancy for the race.

    The average SP at the festival this year was over 10/1, including 6 winners at 20s or bigger. If you have a ground fancy, back it on the day/s, there's still plenty of value

    Whilst the bad weather will no doubt arrive at some time, I'm with archie's thoughts that following last years fatalities, and the high profile action of the Rooneys, that there will be a conscious effort to have the first day's going as soft, then let nature take its course. A lot of the winter form on better ground will prove meaningless.

    Can't envisage them aiming for soft. Good to soft safe jumping ground.
