Hedgehunter will not win again, will be far too heavy a weight this time round. Be very surprised if it comes in - a good place option though, but will almost certainly be short odds. L'Ami is out of it, but again a good placing option.

At the end of the day, any horse COULD win this race. It's after the first lap that you know if a horse will make it or not. It's a lottery before that.

Mark you suck lol

I only had £6 to bet with, so wasn't worth punting it on a short priced horse. Comply or Die would have been my choice, but I would have wanted at least £20 and my dad already had money on it.

Anyway, I plumped for Mr Pointment, which I think finished the race. Was leading and in contention with 4 to go, but couldn't last the distance and dropped back..... may well have been pulled up with 1 or 2 to go...

Dismissed King John's Castle, very surprised that came second, the other two are no surprises.

L'Ami a faller at the 2nd, and No Full a few later i think. Hedgehunter too heavy as expected.

Decent race this year though, only 14 finishers and a good winner. Well done Timmy Murphy who wins at the 12th attempt.
