The purpose of this post is to provide a space where you can chat away in the comments, discussing any ante-post fancies you have or horses you are looking forward to.
If you wish to share please state the horse, the race, and a sentence on why you fancy it. There is no point in just listing a horse (s) as that just defeats the object of the exercise. Also try and be succinct and keep comments short enough. 🙂 (a note for myself if nothing else!) That will help esp when you reply to certain comments and will allow readers to flick through with ease.
As with last year I look forward to reading your many thoughts and fancies.
I’m not a big Ante-Post player myself but I know many of you are, especially with Non-runner-no-bet concessions.
The Festival 2019
As with every year there will be comprehensive coverage on this blog. Last year I put all content behind a paywall and will be doing so again. (existing members have full access as part of subscription) This is a reflection of the amount of work I put in (10h+ days) and the fact we have done quite well in recent years. I tend to focus on 14 races… the 10 handicaps and the other ‘marathon’ races… the NH Chase, Potato Race, RSA, Gold Cup. I also look at The Midland’s National on the Saturday.
Last year was my best to date, and i’ll be hoping to match it, or even surpass it. That will be tough, but it won’t be for the want of trying. This is my favourite ‘puzzle solving’ week of the year and I like to give it everything I’ve got.
Last year’s results below. You can read a full review of the Festival 2018 HERE>>>>

There will be more news in due course for those of you who wish to join me during that week. But that discussion is for another time. (it will be through ClickBank again so you can get a full refund ,no questions asked, if it gets to the end of the week and you didn’t enjoy it)
If you have any strong AP wagers or horses you are really looking forward to, then post away. Has anyone spotted a handicap plot job??
I look forward to reading your musings, and thanks for getting involved,
