Aintree DAY2

Day 1 went well with ( as i write ) 3 good winners from 6 races including a rather surprising 30.10 winner!!...shame i only had that in a small dutch ( always easier to think this in hindsight ) but my LOTD was unplaced and pretty much paid for my entire day so it was profit all round and my one big EW Treble come back with a very nice profit as i hit 2nd/2nd/1st and only missed the Placepot in 1 race ( the Hunter Chase ) and the fucker paid an amazing £3,890.00 !!!...damn n blast!!!!....that would have been nice;).
 Yes this isnt a question i hear a lot but it is the name of a very classy animal indeed and this should be paying my way thru day 2 as i see no way bar a sniper on some grassy knoll where this doesnt win albeit the odds are skinny but fuck it..get lumped on and enjoy the instant return that you can use to spunk off on the later races  ;).
Can the beautiful and wonderfully talented superstar that is Sprinter Sacre get the full 2m4f at a good clip and can he be as devastating over this extended trip ( his only defeat over hurdles was over this trip )??......Can he?, will he?...Will Dynaste get back to winning ways ? ...
And can the wonderful AT FISHERS CROSS extend his winning run further??...i do hope so....yes folks indeed again we have another monster jam packed all action day....sit back and enjoy!!....


WIN - MY TENT OR YOURS - 1st @ 1.40 ( v v easy )

*This is an easy review...MY TENT OR YOURS WINS...simple..there ya go ;)

WIN - DYNASTE - 1st @ 3.20
LONG - N/A -
*This is in my view a straight forward two horse battle between the quickly improving Rocky Creek and the enigmatic yet brilliant DYNASTE and it is the latter i am siding with although the way he flattened out lto is a worry but not enough to stop me lumping on ;) twice a winner over 3m in good races and beating some very good horses this flatter track should help him use his speed between the sticks to better effect and i think he will out speed the very good but dour stayer Rocky Creek on the long run in but this will be very close and it may just boil down to who jumps the cleanest and with them being currently 2.7/3.6 you can just about justify a dutch.

WIN - SPRINTER SACRE - 1st @ 1.38 ( 5L V V Easy )
EW - N/A -
LONG - N/A -
*This is the acid test , the race we have all wanted to see and this will indeed answer many a question yes the only time Sprinter has been beaten was over hurdles and over this longer trip ( he is a 2m specialist ) but he is massively stronger and fitter now and the way he runs and has been running ( plus the fact Hendo thinks he could get 3m if asked to do so ) leads me to believe that this will piss the trip and piss the opposition off , this is a monster, a freak of nature and will win make no bones about it.
Cue Card is the other class act here and is racing over his favored trip and will try and push Sprinter all the way but he will only be racing for places imo and i think he will be battling against Flemenstar for the minors although that has yet to truly convince me but as the others have virtually zero chance of getting involved this is how it will go down...Sprinter to win by at least 8L going away almost sprinting after the last, watch and enjoy!!!
Well that's the first three races done and i cant find anything fucking original..all favourite s ;()...but hey if that's the way it is then so be it...not gonna go against me sen just for the sake of it...No Laybets yet either which is a surprise...lets crack on with the remainder...

*Now this is better for the big price handicap hungry value monsters ;)...a huge 30 runner Chase over the National course....hahaha , wait one min whilst i find my " Magic Pin "........Firstly we must mention P Bowen who as a trainer has won this race for the last 3 years with the admirably tough Always Waining ( ruled out this year ) and i am sure he would like to take it for a 4th consecutive year and saddles two runners but only one looks to have any serious chance and that is SIZING SANTIAGO a consistent sort and multiple winner that should run as well as any and is worth including on anyones short list.
My 3 selections are based purely on my inherent " Jedi Powers " as look to get some place dutches sorted...

WIN - AT FISHERS CROSS - 1st @ 2.46
LONG - N/A -
*Call me lazy , call me what you want but AT FISHERS CROSS it is and im not ashamed to say..yes its another fucking Fav ive gone with!....i love the horse and i think its the best 3m Novice anywhere and it will take a seriously good run and a big improvement for any of these wannabees to get close to troubling this superb Son of Oscar.
I just cannot see the point of going against the horse i feel is the best and the one that will win , it has shown no weakness and is just impossible to oppose imo.

*From famine to feast as we have another impossible to choose 22 runner hcap so i have handed over the selection process to my guest....;-)..Mystic Mel .....x

EW - CENTASIA - 4th @ 19.12
*An interesting finale.....yes thats all folks...just that..its an interesting NHF finale..
Well a brilliant looking card packed with favs and a couple of ridic hcaps....Today will either be epic good for me or the bookies will be smiling until Grand National 2014...i have my Fav 4 in big win Trebles so im expecting a big payday and will look to get some trading action in , some in running lays and 1 or 2 place smashes..its gonna be a great day , enjoy it all.....
**Well my BIG 4 ALL WON which makes it an EPIC DAY ;))))
