    DUBLIN - Snakes & Ladders

    Big weekend coming up.

    And some antepost bets are going to be looking very handsome (David Beckham like) on Sunday evening.

    And some antepost bets are going to luck very ugly (Iain Dowie like) on Sunday evening.

    Might be worth waiting for Final declarations but I'd be interested to hear peoples thoughts on who's gonna be a Beckham and who's gonna be a Dowie after the weekend

    Who's going to enhance there Cheltenham prospects and who's going to reduce there chances ?

    I'll wait till Final declarations and put my thoughts down.

    Cannot have Bapaume this weekend even with his fluency at his obstacles, he doesn't increase the distance between himself and spyglass hill (who isn't a 2miler imo) from the turn in to the finish line and is ridden out all the way to the line. That could be idling but I think when the going gets tough he will concede defeat.... IMO

    Interesting as depending on who's entered I see him as a Dowie myself.

    Cool, I think he’ll sit in behind a red hot pace, pop away & power away to win by 3 lengths....happy to be completely wrong but looking forward to it either way!

    Sharjah, Chacun and Kemboy - handsome corner
    Fury Road, Honeysuckle and Bapaume - ugly corner

    Quite fancy Kemboy to reverse form with everyone and win handsomely at Dublin.

    Which would be excellent for the Gold Cup market as I don’t fancy him for the Cheltenham festival and he might keep some others a sensible price.

    Probably talking through my bets here so this is what Im hoping for!

    Enhanced their chance:
    Chacun Pour Soi
    Abacadabras (IMO I dont think he'll run this weekend)
    Delta Work
    Notebook

    Lessen their chance:
    Kemboy
    Bapaume
    Faugheen
    Honeysuckle
