Good morning all,
Well, how's the week been for you, so far? Up and down here – a good start on Tuesday with Vintage Clouds slowly ebbed away on Wednesday, but two good each-way bets on Shantou Flyer and Storm Control put me in front yesterday.
It was a real shame Lisnagar Oscar coming down in the Stayers, he still looked like he had something to offer and I think he'd have been in the frame, at worst.
So it's Gold Cup day, and I have to say the big race itself makes little appeal from a punting perspective, so let's just hope for a great race without too much incident, and the best horse on the day winning.
The rest of my thoughts on the day, along with my main selection, freely available at big prices, are on the video today.
Today's selection – 1.55 Cheltenham – Petit Mouchoir (e/w 7 or 8 places, Paddy and Skybet) at 25-1 and bigger
Good luck with all your bets today,
