    Unfortunately I'm not in a position to get into the form due to ongoing issues with my vision. Hopefully by the end of the week things will have improved but I can't see me getting too heavily into the handicaps until the 5-day stage.

    Good luck with your eye, DO. I'm going in for my lung x ray soon.

    I've placed another each way patent tonight.

    I've never been so keen on about 12-15 horses for the festival as I am this season.

    I know they can't all win, although I've been backing everything each way.

    We'll see what happens.

    Looking forward to it.

    I watched the Matchbook one on YouTube earlier. Quite decent, couple of good judges. Adelle Mulrennan I have a bit of a thing for as well.

    The attheraces one hasn't started well. Bantz is difficult over zoom.

    Had no idea who this was, so checked her out.

    Looks like a stabber.

    Not necessarily a bad thing that.

    From David Cottin's twitter feed

    Sad news... Unfortunately, due to the current health situation that prevents owners from attending the @CheltenhamRaces
    festival, AJAS won’t join his stable mate Easysland in the Glenfarclas Chase. Will remain in France and will be prepared for the #PrixTroytown
