    Good man. Shoot the messanger haha

    I'm really excited about Lough Derg Spirit. He disappointed I the end didn't he but the way he took a hurdle, if he can translate that to a fence he might be gaining lengths at each fence ... wish would be a bonus in this race!

    I still really like Lough Derg Spirit. I can see him being a cliff horse for me already and like you say he showed superb jumping at times last year. A word of caution though...

    At Hendersons Open Day last Easter I asked Nick Dr Boinville if there was anything wrong at Aintree after pulling up when well beat and he said along the lines of

    He was never right BUT don't expect to see him go left handed again anytime soon
    So if be very cautious on backing him for Cheltenham. I don't have it to hand but I'm also pretty sure Jeremiah McGrath says he needs a right handed track as well in Paul Ferguson's book (though the horse is still in his to follow list)

    I imagine the likes of Sandown and especially Kempton will be where we see him over fences

    I'm off work for a few weeks so I've decided to watch the 2017 festival back again.

    Wrt Ballyandy - I had forgotten what a horrible time of it he had in the Supreme. He made a slight mistake at the 2nd and badly lost his position as a result; then not long afterwards he clipped heels and nearly came down. He still managed to finish 4th, closing on River Wylde up the hill.

    He is of interest to me, especially as Billy had been told he goes novice chasing.
