    I fancied the Elliot horse in the bumper and Cause of Causes but cause for concern with the form of his runners today!!

    Quite fancy Min tomorrow. The only one of the three at the head of the market that's had a decent prep and who we know is the most likely to run a true race and will be battling the whole way. Douvan will be let down if he doesn't show anything early. 4/1 Min just looks terrific.

    Also keen on Cause of Causes 3/1 for Codd. should handle the conditions better than Tiger Roll and that hopefully will be enough to do the business yet again at the festival.

    Fred Winter - two each ways and a reverse forecast on Act of Valour and Grand Sancy - 10/1 and 25/1. I landed this bet in the Fred Winter a couple of years ago and I'm going in again.

    Presenting Percy 11/4
    I haven't had a strong view on the staying novices but as the grounds got testing it just plays into this fellas hands so much. I was at Fairyhouse when he sluiced up over 3m5 in soft carrying top weight, albeit a handicap, it's just shows what a stout stayer he is. Will love conditions and sure to go dam well.

    Also backing Nube Negra at a juicy 9/1 in the FW, Skelton knows how to win a handicap round here and the second to the Triumph winner in waiting looks a cut above. Bumper is a minefield, so ive kept it simple and stuck with Willies favourite, Blackbow 5/1 in it <laugh>

    Queen Mother looks a serious race, not sure what way to go in it. Hopefully Douvan is at his best and we'll have a right race on with the fav if so. Min looks booked for MINor honours to me. His Dublin Fez win was easy on the eye but his forms not really good enough to be winning this if the other two perform, which is the question. Small matter of Samcro out too, hear he's half decent <laugh>

    I thought lanky Mullins gave Rathvinden a **** ride but then I was on the Honeyball animal. Onto tomorrow and a lovely day out at Prestbury Park with some right good eggs. Tried and failed to find anything to oppose the O'Leary beast in the opener. Got Black Corton in a bunch of multiples but wouldn't be confident on the heavy ground. NTDs Ballyoptic however maybe just have his conditions, 12/1. Springtown Lake and Red Indian (both 25s) in the Coral lottery, watch and enjoy the QMCC with no financial interest (that may change on the day), Federici ew @ 100/1 in the XC, Grand Sancy @ 16s in the FW, and Mercy Mercy Me @ 25s in the lucky last.
    In the XC I'm not convinced about the 2 Elliott market leaders in the heavy going with both preferring better ground. They may just be better than the rest but this is a long trip on unsuitable ground. Jodie's Orders could be the answer @ 7s but Federici shouldn't be 100/1. This one spent some time with Enda Bolger and has some experience of this type of race. In fact he was a game 2 length second to JO giving him 5lbs in one of these at Punchestown. Depending on the outcome of the above it will be an Indian or sausage n chips on the way home. Either way it beats the absolute fook out of working. Good luck everyone.
