Lucky 15 Monday April 3rd  

Monday 6.00pm No Lucky 15 for Tuesday with Newton Abbott waterlogged (really??), Southwell on the AW and a really poor Kempton card. However I have managed to post Part II of my title championship blog concentrating on Punchestown and Elliott v Mullins, “You can’t win anything with kids”.

Time now to get my head deep into these Aintree entries with spring ground, speed horses needed. In my opinion the Grand National is now the best quality 4m+ chase in the programme and I’ll treat it as such. Got to stay, jump, stay, travel, stay and have a little bit of luck and be ridden by a horseman! I’m open to alternative theories, please email, message or tweet.

Sundays Lucky 15

If you got on Tales at the early prices its £12 back if not its £9! The last two had every chance but just couldn’t quicken.

Ascot 2.00                               TALES OF THE TWEED                       1st 3/1F            (9/2 PP + WH)

Won with a shed load in hand. De Boinville must have taken at least a couple of tugs. Swinton hurdle? Scottish Champion?      

Ascot 2.30                               GREGARIOUS                          Non Runner   (7/1 Lads 6/1 general)

Ground simply dried out too much.        

Ascot 3.05                               BROTHER TEDD                      3rd 5/4F           (6/4 general)

Thought he would really appreciate this ground but simply one-paced.

Ascot 4.15                               NO DUFFER                             5th 6/1             (13/2 general)

Prominent and jumped beautifully just needed softer ground to make it more of a stamina and less of a sprint from two out.
