    Yeah, certainly likely to be in the mix, not a bad each way price but I can't see him being the number 1 for the owner... COC and JO above him for now...

    Good technique... I find concentrating them all on one race (Gold Cup!) worked nicely...

    Not unexpected, what a huge shame she didn't get a last hoorah! One of the most memorable horses for many years to come for sure! We ALL have an Annie Power story I bet

    I really like this trixie, refusing to use cash though so waiting on a free bet

    I'd have to agree CoC would have to be owner's number 1

    I don't really like doing multiples too far out because a) they don't make it b) I'm vaguely useless at them, I need a little bit of form to go off
    They've excluded me from the free bet club. W*nkers.

    Switch Buvuer D'air? Not a chance and if DDS was fav for the race I'd be incredibly underwhelmed ... I've gone right off DDS in the off season ... I think he might just have been much more forward than anything else in his division... we see SO many juveniles not train on like we hope and I haven't fallen in love with DDS (Now the winnings from Cheltenham have been forgotten!) .... I blame Charli Parcs?

    I also hope Douvan faces off against Altior, I will NEED to be there on the Wednesday if that happens. Altior edges it for me if I wasn't having a bet (price is everything) ....

    Nichols Canyon I think will be under rated all season .... 6/1 still too big!

    Our Duke is a certainty. All in

    It may be tongue in cheek Kev, but I think you are right!

    Our Duke, Buveur D'air and Cause of Causes are certainties in my eyes.

    Buveur D'Air, Cause of Causes and Nichols Canyon are building up to be a decent chunk of my antepost book already in a variety of bets and i'll likely keep topping up here and there until the Autumn

    Buveur D'air really had has the 2 mile hurdle division at his mercy doesn't he? Bar any setbacks he'll also benefit hugely from a full 2 mile hurdle campaign this year and i'd be amazed if there wasn't a lot more improvement in him once again. I agree that Defi du Seuil has a huge step up to take this year just to get to the level BD finished off at this season but seeing as I can see that one improving further It would take a huge swing of both DDS improving significantly and BD regressing significantly for the Hobbs horse to come out on top.

    DDS was streets ahead of the rest of the juveniles so you can't fancy any others and the novice hurdlers look a below par bunch this year or at least the ones that will be staying over hurdles. All eyes then turn to Mullins...It would not surprise me in the slightest if Faugheen follows Annie into retirement following all the issues he's had and even if the yard were able to get him back to the track then it's a huge ask at what will be 10 years old. Min reverting back could be interesting having beaten BD in the Supreme and depending how Mullins shuffles his (in particular 2m) chasing pack next year though the lack of updates about him at the end of the year aren't ideal. Then we get to Yorkhill...he could give the fav something to worry about for sure IF he reverts back but i'd be siding with a few more points on the 4/1 on Buveur D'Air over 10/1 Yorkhill right now.

    Our Duke - though 12/1 is a tad too big and he's a major player in the race, i'm a little surprised by the supreme confidence in him.
    As impressive as the Irish National was i'm airing slightly on the cautious side on just how much to take from the race. Think i need some convincing on that front so fire away...
