    Ricci indicating on ATR now that Salsaretta could go for the Mares Novice. Wouldn’t get the 10/1 she is right now if they send her there on her debut
    Alcohol, because no good story ever started with "I was eating this salad..."

    Ground conditions need to be taken into account but didn't look a vintage renewal

    In saying that 3 of the top 4 should make good chasers in time
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done

    You surprise me, DO, I thought they went plenty quick enough early considering the ground.
    Ah! but a man's reach should exceed his grasp......

    Thought Paloma Blue ran well considering he pulled like a train. Hes also got plenty of scope enough to make up into a lovely chaser. Hendos also ran well on ground he doesn't really like. Might be of interest at Aintree?

    You'd have to think Samcro would have hacked up in that Supreme.

    Just my immediate impression, Colin. I'll have a much closer look in due course but I don't think too much came from the back.

    On a line through Paloma Blue Samcro must have gone close in the Supreme.

    Better drinking your money than paying to oppose him IMO

    only worry is r walsh is a genius who might have something up his sleeve with next destination. think he'll want to make it a test as much as possible but without nackering his own horses chance.

    suspect and hope it makes no difference but it's going to be fascinating.
