    Right on the heels of the leaders and travelling as well as any of them when tipping up two out. Would have been interesting to see how he went from there. The first two seemed to quicken away after the last but I reckon he'd have been in with a shout for third place.

    Well there for a very long way, chef. I was shouting it on but maybe it didn't quite stay.

    Apologies to anyone who followed mine. Seemed like a good idea at the time! A shadow of his former self.

    Sandown 1:55 - This race looks ripe for a big priced horse to get involved. Molly Carew won a couple of novice hurdles about eighteen months ago; While she has (for the most part) disappointed since, she is still only six, and might just be extremely well handicapped for her first try over fences. 25/1 each way.

    Scoir Mear 2.45 Navan tomorrow.
    JP has 4 in the race and Mark Walsh rides which should be a plus.
    A pure cliff horse but has to have a good race in him on Coral Cup run a few years ago.
    20/1 with Lads,Boyles/Coral an ew bet methinks.
    if feeling really lucky, ew double with Lady In Lavender Sunday Cork 2.50

    1.30 aintree

    Federici 33/1
    I once thought this horse was going to win a national but never progressed and doesnt stay that far but should be ok at this distance and will like the going. Hopefully Brian Hughes will get him into a rhythm near the front.

    He rang a bell with me too, Outsider, but I'm going to be too heavily committed in the race already to back him as well

    (I haven't looked at any of the betting yet so don't even know if I'll have any qualifiers today.)

    I should maybe add at this point that I've taken two ante-post bets in the National. I think I mentioned Un Temps Pour Tout earlier in the thread (66/1 taken twice so far) and I've followed it up with Noble Endeavor at 50/1.

    I don't expect NE to win today. I anticipate that today is all about a) getting him qualified and b) getting some experience of the fences. If he ends up with another few pounds off his back for April, so much the better.

    Ain 1.30 Call It Magic 20/1 - joint-top on my master ratings but some poor runs require forgiving.

    San 1.20 Little Boy Boru 20/1 - Top on my ratings and Harry Cobden looks an interesting booking for a small operation on a horse that is a stone lower than its peak.

    Yes, I had half an eye on it through the race hoping it would get a place for you (while hoping it wouldn't beat mine )

    I'm also pretty happy with the run of Noble Endeavor. Popped round safely just off the pace, made a bit of ground going to two out and wasn't asked much after that. I'm pretty sure that's him qualified to run now and, as I said, if he drops a few pounds for today even UTPT might struggle to beat him

    1st - +16lb -- 2nd +40lb -- 3rd +10lb --4th hasn't run again -- 5th +18lb -- 6th is selection and hasn't run again -- 7th +3lb
    Although the selection hasn't run for a year I'm hoping he has improved by a similar margin and this race has been his target? If so off a 3lb lower mark than last year he could be very well h'capped?
    This one came up on my tracker this evening. I've taken a small bet at 500/1.

    Just in case...

    Huntingdon 2.25 - Hammersley Lake 22/1 - I backed this one the other week in the race won by Politologue as I have a big figure for it. It faded badly from three out on the day and maybe the ground was just too soft for it or maybe it just needed it after a fruitless trip to America. Another downside is that it looked a pretty small and slight animal compared with some of its rivals that day but it has won under top weight in handicaps so maybe it's deceptive. Yet another negative is today's jockey (for me at any rate). However, Hammersley Lake went up to 165 for winning a decent handicap at Perth (good ground) off 159 but even today's lower OR of 161 makes him the highest rated horse in the field. If he runs to form he could be seriously over-priced.
