    Perhaps Money talks louder than Twitter. Check out the price movements this morning. I'm sitting tight.

    I’m starting to get interested in Bacardys the closer we get
    Liked his first win & had largely forgotten about him, but noticed in recent interviews he was the first horse mentioned by both Willie and Patrick when asked about the race
    I guess Ruby will be on Augusta Kate and would hope Patrick is on him. Should go off much shorter than the current 20/1

    Maybe Sizing Granite was turfed out to Murphy to make space for this lad.........

    Still can't understand that move.

    New owner wants a definite winner seems a fair guess. Hopefully that's the case.

    The Bumper Thread

    EBF listed Mares betting for Sandown in for Saturday with pp. One I really like for this is Avellino for Dermot Mcloughlin who I know is bypassing the champion bumper for this instead.

    Her form in Ireland is rock solid with 2 wins and her second to Lucky Pass at Fairyhouse on debut couldn't have worked out better. I think she'll be better for any drying ground too.

    At 8/1 you've a serious ew price now with a few ahead of her in the market probably going to Cheltenham. Copper Kay has looked very good and will take a hell of a lot of beating!

    Invitation Only, fancied for Cheltenham by some decent judges, declared at Navan on Sunday. The rain has really delayed the appearance of several of the likely better bumper horses and it's quite likely that the bumpers at the other festivals will be very competitive.
    The older I get the better I was.

    Done it very well even after a slight walk in the market
    The giggi horse that was backed looked to be getting the hang of things late on in 4th.

    Looks like Ireland's turn this year.

    Avenie D'une Vie - Patrick on board and first Giggi runner in this for a good while. He looks the one.

    Augusta Kate the big danger.

    When looking for an ante post angle I always look for something that makes up lengths and puts distance between the rest at the business end and that has been Augusta Kate this year.I think she will also step up again on that ground.Think it's between her and jps

    Still shortening. Westwood must have his career earnings on it.
