    Post Cheltenham blues ........

    First day back after last week and the inevitable post Cheltenham blues have hit me, big time. I am sure lots feel the same way.

    I find myself at a loss as to what to do, less so because the week has ended, but more so with my time on a day to day basis, which was predominately spent thinking about and planning Cheltenham. Plenty of people on here who invest more time than me will attest to that!

    What I have realized in creating this thread is that I love and miss the build up to Cheltenham, almost as much as the week itself. When you look at it from that perspective, we don't have a year to wait at all! Come September/October the season will be underway, the forum will be busy with pre-Cheltenham chatter and the ante post slips will be starting to fly. 5 months will be gone in no time, and we still have Aintree, Punchestown and Fairyhouse to look forward to in the meantime.

    See you then

    I think Punchestown is going to be an amazing festival this year

    Trainers championship being sewn up will help avoid the farcical entries from last year aswell

    Cheltenham gets a lot of us through the dark winter days.

    Aintree should be about more than the national imo and lots of good racing to be had there. 2 weeks and 4 days to go.

    Altior in the Melling Chase for one!

    I'm probably in the minority, but I enjoy Aintree just as much.

    It might take me all 2 weeks and 4 days to recover.

    Charlie is right for me, the build up is as enjoyable as the week...
