    Just reading through this, and I see a few of you guys are on the same selection as me in the 3.35 George Bowen. That four of us that have tipped up the same horse at 40/1. Surely a first for this thread!

    OPEN WIDE 33/1 is another one I've followed and will need the gaps.last year it opened up just right and he flew into 2nd.
    HEY JONESY you would think this course would be ideal and after the wokingham I have to back it again.
    SUMMERGHAND just lost out in the wokingham but O'meara went and won a 6000 race with him so hes worse off now.didnt make sense to me but you still cant rule it out.
    STONES OF DESTINY is well in with a lot of these

    Well happy with that.

    Well done mate don't know how O'Meara keeps doing it the horse ultra consistent but held no secrets from the handicapper, slap a bit of headgear on and bosh !

    Well played mate 1st and 2nd can't do much better than that.

    And D.O sorry hadn't seen you'd got it aswell.

    I'm going to put one up a/p for the EBOR.

    EUCHEN GLEN 33/1 gen 50/1 SB.

    Looks as if it's been running with this race the aim.

    Just one today (so far).

    Ascot 2.25 Silent Attack 40/1 - seems better on the all-weather but last January he was a close third in a 100+k handicap at Meydan off 103 for Saeed bin Suroor. He missed last summer and was sold out of Godolphin to be trained by Tony Carroll who got him back to form on the all-weather last back-end getting his mark up from 98 to 102. After the return from lockdown he was well beaten in the Buckingham Palace then withdrawn from a race due to good-to-soft ground, which had also prevailed at Ascot and might therefore explain the poor run, and he showed a lot more at York a couple of weeks ago on better ground. He’s been dropped another 3lbs to 97 and the claimer is operating at 21% for the trainer – 75% at placings first to fourth – so his 5lbs might be worth taking into account.

    Silent Attack doesn't run so money probably saved.

    However, I've re-invested it on Ernest in the 3.00 at Ascot. He's a Listed winner over 1m6f in Germany but has run tamely in both starts here for his new trainer. He'll probably return to some sort of form at some point and has come down 5lbs for those two runs. They might want him down further with something bigger in mind but at 80/1 and an extra place on offer it's enough to tempt me today.
