The blood's up!!

What have y'all got in mind for this years festival? Any tips, naps, crocks etc?

Am lucky enough to be going to the Friday this year for the Gold Cup- can't bleedin wait.

Anyways- FWIW here's my yankee for today:

13.30 Galileo's Choice
14.05 Al Ferof
15.20 Hurrican Fly
16.00 Uncle Junior

Paddy Power are doing a money back special on the 14.05 Arkle Chase if Sprinter Sacre wins, so definitely worth putting a few quid on Al Ferof or Menorah in that one...

i expect to be back here, weeping and shirtless, tomorrow morning.

I've a fiver on Hurricane Fly, Sizing Europe and Kauto Star @ 15/1

Arsenal's last minute winner yesterday won me 100 euro so I withdrew 80 from my Betfair account and with the remaining 20 euro I layed Long Run who common consensus seems to say is way too short a price @ 2/1

Hurricane Fly and Sizing Europe should both win - I think Kauto Star admiral though he is, is getting too long in the tooth for the Gold Cup.

That's a fiver I won't be seeing again !!!

Hopefully there's a similar upset in The Gold Cup and Long Run fails to win !!!

Probably applies to greyhounds too.The poor bastards.
its way worse with greyhounds. I broke up with a girl over greyhounds once. Her family kept them and she told me about how they were getting one put down cos he was 'no use' anymore, which basically translated as slowing down. I couldn't get past that at all so made her think I was losing interest and got her to dump me out of fear I'd dump her first.

Probably best not to follow those choices as the first two I posted both fell in their respective races.
