    From memory I believe someone put up midnight tour at a huge price what a shout.

    And well done to the guys who backed the winner. She wasn't on my mind at all. Ruby gave her a lovely patient ride.
    Watched again and 'shocker' was a bit harsh but she was weakening when making a clumsy, tired jump at the last. At best she would have been fourth. If someone had said the favourite would only finish third I would have expected La Bague Au Roi to have been in the first two. On ratings I think she went in second best so however you want to dress it up it was disappointing. Personally, I wouldn't back her again at Cheltenham.

    Yeh it's a fair point, 4th would have done me as ew without aj. But she did the hard work and went for glory. Was a cracking ride on the winner by ruby he's judged the pace very well all day.

    I think in hindsight Apples Jade's lack of a recent prep run cost her today. Gordon has said in the past she always comes on for a good blow a few weeks before a big target. I'm surprised they didn't take in the Quevega Hurdle en route like they did last year...

    The winner may be very good - time will tell. The difference in Apples Jade between triumph and Aintree was massive so it will be interesting to see what happens if we get a rematch,

    Watching it back, you have to give Ruby a lot of credit for not getting into a fight with Apples Jade, and going up the middle when Apples moved across to the rail. She loves a fight and nobody gave her one until it was too late.

    So I was about to back a horse I’d mever heard of. Then scrolled down and saw she wasn’t entered. Would’ve been worth a go.

    I’d genuinely never heard of her but I wonder why they’ve never bothered running her over here. I would’ve thought the French still regarded the festival as a massive thing even over there.

    DE BON COEUR
    Runs today at auteuil well worth a watch against the likes of lami serge, kilultagh vic. Yorkhill, coquin mans
    She's better than Apple's jade, no doubt.

    I may back her Scooby but I don’t tend to bet on the French Racing. Cheers.

    Watching the Grand steeplechase De Paris as I type this but I don’t have a bet on it.
