    Can't believe Wicklow Brave is 2/1 fav tomorrow -I would make him a significantly bigger price -7/2 maybe 4/1.I could see him getting behind early on and he is possibly a place lay.

    The jockeys have been mostly good as gold ever since.

    Shanning is in fine form and has a good profile for the race but, to mix a couple of metaphors, it's a lottery and you just hope the pack is dealt in your favour.

    Robin De Carlow has never won at a distance below 2m4f but she's probably earned a shot at the novice chase. Hopefully, David will let her go round at her own pace and see what unfolds up the hill.

    I won't be there but will be cheering them on from (behind) the sofa. Safe home to both and anything else is a bonus.

    Some of the racing has been brutal alright this week, not an inch given

    With the prize money at stake, its no surprise to see so many entries but the track lends itself to tightness and little room at the best of times
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done

    Robin De Carlow is reported ok. An overreach resulting in a small cut.

    Not had a report back from the course but, for me, the starter did Shanning no favours and she lost about 6 lengths when he let them go.

    Don Mobile did a trio of wins at Tramore years ago, flat hurdle and chase and they named no race after him so don't hold your breath.

    Golden Fleece had a race named after him at Thirsk -a seller.

    Ilikedwayurthinking the possible star from the meeting. Surely a grade performer in the making. Perhaps grade 1 (over fences) perhaps
