Afternoon Earth Dwellers ,
                                             Well im still alive and breathing and operating at a better level now as my mind clears and the decisions i need to make start to unravel thru the slow process of thinking while drinking talking while drinking and just drinking...

Tmrw sees the start of the Punchestown Festival which is usually good for a punt or two and i will post my selections up although i dont think there will be many original thoughts....

The 1620....DOUVAN.....cant see it losing so not gonna consider anything else as this is one in our new group of mega stars....wonderful horse and jam packed wwith class.

The 1730 is the Boyle Sports CHAMPION CHASE over 2m and this looks a very strong renewal with HIDDEN CYCLONE the best EW bet for me as it has form on its own that entitles it to go close plus it holds a couple of these thru lateral form and has shown to be rather consistent with its lto run a trip too far and will be much more at home today.

In the Bumper i am rather keen on BON ENFANT from a yard still doing great on the back of a very strong season and with a very decent NHF rider doing the steering this should go off at a each way price and is worth throwing a few quid at.

In the CHAMPION CHASE or the Gigginstown / Meade chase ( own 4 of the 5 runners ) it is impossible to get away from hat fav DON POLI that has everything in its favour and should be too good for these on all known form with Apache Stronghold the only one thought capable of getting close.

And that kinda wraps up Day 1...i will hopefully be back tmrw for some more words of wisdom and some perilous insight.....good luck folks.
