No bets. I have spent long enough staring at this and I am struggling to make a case for anything at the prices. I don’t really fancy any of the young guns/front three in the market. But I don’t know what else to punt and it would be betting for the sake of it. I do wonder if Russian Regent and Bailys C will fight this out like they did last year. On ratings you would fancy the latter to turn it around – but he is 11 and 5s seems short enough for one who has to still prove he truly sees this trip out. He travelled well at Aintree before fading but that race has worked out well and he wasn’t beaten far. He may put up a bold show. Russian Regent is on a career high chase mark aged 13. I suspect this has been a target and he may not be far away. 9s is possibly tempting but his age is holding me back. A race I am happy to sit out. Looks tricky.

4.10 Perth – Tangolan (12/1< guide) UP
Nothing else today. Fingers crossed Tangolan, 9s>9/2, can run a decent race. We shall see.
