    I’ve backed Diego Du Charmil for the GA at 16/1. After he won his last race a few weeks ago I’m sure Nicholls stated his festival options were limited due to not being good enough to compete against Altior and not suitable for much else so the Grand Annual was his only realistic option. He’s currently 156 so he may a doubt??

    It's an open handicap so there is no ceiling on the top ratings TKP

    After the number of horse fatalities in the GA last year am right in that the BHA are limiting or not allowing any claiming jockeys to ride this year??

    I was wondering about Townshend for this. Ran in it last year for WM but since moved to NTD. Last 2 runs has reverted to hurdles and was entered in hurdle races this weekend. Interestingly (possibly?) had wind surgery in December. Not sure whether stated intentions are to carry on over hurdles or if might switch back to fences. NTD has won the GA previously. Just a thought at this stage.
