Carlokilkennie - your selection in the Aintree hurdle is now Buveur d'Air as Verdana Blue is a NR, unless you change your selection before the race starts in five minutes' time!

cracking foxhunters

good to see the amatures pulling up horses early if they didnt think they fancied it, and the finish from Top Wood, who none of us had ,was brave

Twas a great race. My money was on Burning Ambition who looked all over the winner when cruising to the lead at the elbow but then just had no pace on the infamous long run in at Aintree. Good ride from Jess Worsley on Top Wood though.

Lots of people with NRs in this 4.40 2mile handicap chase so everyone with NR will be on Lady Buttons who went SP favourite late on.

Day 1 comes to a close with the scores fairly bunched with only neathiron off the bridle and being hard driven at the mo! Lots of second places today, in particular a special mention to Sicknote who somehow managed six seconds and it could have been all seven if he went for the other one at the top of the market in the Foxhunters :lol: A well deserved spot at the top of the leaderboard for Balhamite and Patricklambe who somehow managed to pick out Supasundae and Moon Over Germany, two cracking picks those. Good luck tomorrow!

As far as debuts go, that was piss poor! Feel like West Ham after every opening game of the season, as in there may be trouble ahead! Mentioned on other threads my bets never come in. I am convinced I can get West Ham to win the Premiership just by betting on the opposition or draw (double chance) every game :) Anyhow here is my selections for Fanny Day tomorrow. Sorry if my fellow competitors have already chosen some of these. You would be wise to edit your picks.

1.45 - Esprit Du Large
2.20 - Precious Cargo
2.50 - Lost In Translation
3.25 - Waiting Patiently (Nap)
4.05 - Ballyhill
4.40 - Dallas Des Pictons
5.15 - Ebony Jewel
