    Lay of the festival

    Enjoying reading all of your fancies
    However,which of the favourites would you prefer to lay ?
    Might Bite for me
    Think he will puke his ring up half way up the hill and head for the Guinness tent
    Just my opinion,what's yours ?

    See I thought that last year and despite his little detour he still rallied and got it done.

    I'm not sure he'll win (think he's vulnerable to a proper full blown stayer) but I think his cruising speed and that they seem to know how to ride him a bit better now means I wouldn't be mad keen to be laying him

    I think the frightening thing about Might Bite is how much he had left having virtually stopped. Never seen the like of it in a Championship race at the Festival.

    At the prices, it would have to be Samcro for me. He may well be truly special, and I hope he is for all those on at fancy prices, but from a price / value perspective, 2/1 on what he's achieved, in what might be one of the hottest Novice races of the week. I'd gladly lay all day long. Especially when you factor in he's had a couple of niggles.

    Apple’s Shakira for me. Think she is shorter than she should be because of who her sister is.

    The last race she beat nothing and took her time getting there and the race before was impressive but her main rival went off too hard in front and fell in a hole at the end similar to Adrian De Pont against Coney Island.

    He's beaten the same horses that next destination has and by further so the form isn't bad

    I would like to see him winning a grade 1 though before lumping any cash on for the festival

    Seen it too many times before as well, the big Irish hope coming over and blowing up. Death duty last year was a fine example

    Samcro for me too - you’d need certifying to be backing it now at 2s and under.

    ... pop in to the arkle thread and get some discussion going about why would mate .... good to have different opinions and I can't recall anyone being anything but effusive in the last month at least

    Although not favourite, Faugheen at this stage wild bvd my last of the festival. At the odds I'd rather lay him than Samcro

    Un de sceaux ryanair
    Apple's shakira triumph
    Our duke gold cup
    Melon CH
    Politologue qmcc
    Presenting percy rsa

    All massively too short. Only AS would have a chance of WINNING in my eyes but not one that her odds reflect.
    If I could do a lay acca I would.
