2 Spring Festivals down, 1 to go!
Has the look of a great festival. Elliott is ahead in the trainers title but Mullins has dominated the past festivals - can he claw it back?
And of course the return of Annie Power!
2m Champion Novice Hurdle - all eyes will be on Labaik back in Ireland - will he start? And Melon, further progression and he may be their CH horse next year?
2m Champion Chase - Can God's Own continue his fine track record against Un de Sceaux?
3m Champion Novice Chase - Belshill another who loves the track but Disko back over 3miles is interesting - strong form lines with Our Duke
3m Novice Hurdle - Penhill vs Monalee vs Presenting Percy into grade 1 company
Gold Cup - Can throw up odd results but can Sizing John follow up his Cheltenham win. The return of Coneygree
Bumper - Has thrown up the likes of Blow by Blow, Belshill, Shaneshill and Champagne Fever over the last few years. Fayonagh vs Poli Roi vs Someday
3m Champion Stayers - UNWIMH will hope to get revenge on Nicols Canyon. Sutton Place a very interesting runner
2m Ryanair Novice Chase - Great Field the one to beat?
2m Champion Hurdle - Will Annie Power run here? Can she win it?
2m4 Champion Novice Hurdle - Death Duty drops back to 2m4 - can he get back to winning ways, excuses last time out?
Foxhunters - Can On The Fringe bounce back and win this for an amazing 6 times?
2m4 Mares Champion Hurdle - No Limini but could be a rematch between Apples Jade and VVM - same outcome? Would be great if the title went down to this day.
Plus lots of handicaps where both Mullins and particularly Elliott should have plenty of runners.
Any thoughts 5 days out?
I'm also going there for the first time this year for my stag do on the Friday so feel free to post up any tips for that day...can't see much form study done...
