Good days racing today at Aintree.

 

Gone for a win 15 on Sizing John, Apple's Jade, Djakadam and Annie Power.

£15 returns £336.50

 

Cue Card instead of Djakadam for me but that's 75% of the same bet I'll be having. We're doomed.

 

I really fancy Apple's Jade to reverse placings with Ivanovich Gorbatov on this easing ground.

I'm sticking with Branislav Ivanovic in the second race after he won for me at Cheltenham.

Hoping Sceau Royal can bounce back after Cheltenham and King has a good record in the race.

 

Did you just get the Racing Post app notification with his record in the race? :lol: It is an unreal record mind.

It's standing out on the ratings service I use. Worth an each way bet as usually horses that don't run well at Cheltenham come along and do well at Aintree.

Time for Cue Card to show everyone he should've won the Gold Cup.

Might not have got up the hill so there is some reasonable doubt there.

I take your point on board but I don't agree :lol:, especially after the treatment he just gave Djakadam and Don Poli on ground favouring them

 

Cue Card is my favourite horse, delighted he's bounced back.

Aintree is an awful lot flatter than Cheltenham. Very much like Kempton, where he obviously excels.

Sir Des Champs and Just A Par in the sweepstake for the National.  Could have been worse, I suppose.

 

I've got the same two in my sweepstake :lol: Little chance I reckon.

 

Also, Cue Card is much better suited to Aintree so it's hard to say if he would have won at Cheltenham- no doubt he'd have been there or thereabouts though. End of the day, it's all about the jumping and his jumping was poor when push came to shove at Cheltenham.

Oh I know sod all about jumps.  Bar the big names that run at Cheltenham.  But I mean, there are some absolute no hopers in the 40.  At least I got one that should probably stay and another that happens to have the best trainer and the best jockey on board  :thup:
