    It won't happen and nor would he care but Willie should have no complaints if he was fined for schooling in public with him there.

    Not sure what to make of the winner. He looks good but I can't see him troubling Shishkin.
    Alcohol, because no good story ever started with "I was eating this salad..."

    Any word on Unexcepted? It would make sense given the profile to go straight to the Arkle.

    I'm told Unexcepted suffered a small setback, but that he might be back for the DRF.

    Hard to balance up the need to be fresh and the need for experience. If he was a viable Arkle candidate, might determine plans for Energumene.

    The weight of Grassy's money was too much

    On a serious note, ithink he may have bled before (slim may have said this) so any long gap is a concern
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done

    Not shabby at all from the Mullins lad today. Captain is decent so he looks smart the winner. Look forward to some nicer ground.

    Christ knows how Asterion Forlonge is as short as 2/1 in opposition. I don’t think he’ll get anwhere near the jolly.

    Receiving 7 pounds? Going right handed. Take a very good performance. But i do expect Envoi to do it. Hopefully it’ll happen.

    Asterion Forlonge is no bigger than 2/1 to have himself on the floor. Can't have him.

    Possibly but if he stands up he’s some horse.

    Id go as far as saying if he stands, and Envoi wins, it’ll be his best performance yet.

    He will be pulled why would you give AF 11 lbs on heavy ground 8 weeks before Chelts

    pretty harsh when he's only fallen once.

    with the 11lb receipt the odds seem about right. AF won every race well beside the fall and cheltenham where he jumped right as he usually does. if envoi sees him off easily giving 11lb the hype machine will go into overdrive but like others have suggested, he might well be best saved for the DRF.
