Don't fancy Djakadam myself, he has lots to prove (only won a handicap off 145) and his price isn't reflective of that.

Gonna wait for the weather report tomorrow, supposedly gonna bucket down in the morning so that will have a big impact on the ante.

Fancy Coneygree in the GC who has lots to prove but plenty in the tank. If the ground goes soft it seems most going with Many Clouds, which sounds ironically good.

PP won't let me bet on black hercules, keep getting an "event was suspended" msg but I can pick any other horse. Odd.

No idea who to pick in the gold cup, shit odds too tbh

haha was delighted to be in with a shout at the start, but he stayed so well and made it a great watch and inevitable win. Had a few winners today, killultagh vic in the last made it the sweeter!

in all reality the boozer was the real winner today, heres to next year. i might have to take the week off for it!
