    All about Finian's Oscar for me. I was deeply impressed with him at Punchy (went way too soon) and have taken 20s for the Arkle. Owner's history suggests they'll avoid the JLT.

    I may not make it next year.
    all depends on who wins the Rose Of Tralee this year; should the Chicago Rose win I could be in Chicago for St Patrick's Day along with my choir.
    Will have 50 Euro on her to win; it will be money well spent whatever the result !

    The angle is the Chicago Rose is our choir manager's daughter.
    Should she win there is a strong chance of us being invited to Chicago for St Patrick's Day celebrations.
    Now as the Chicago Rose won the event last year the chances are slim but London roses won the event two years running so the possibility is there.
    Having fifty on with my punting record is about the best way i have of stopping her winning but should she come good for the current Talking Horses NH Cup holder then at least I shall have beer money with which to drown my sorrows.

    You haven't even got a thread going for The Derby. Could you imagine that for The Gold Cup?

    There's no soul in the flat game, and therefore no love.
