    Well thats the only entry hes got and he will get in the race rating wise so i'd expect him to turn up unless he suffers a setback. Pretty obvious why they have stayed away from the RSA but he could have run in the Jewson. Maybe they are thinking that his mark is lenient and will run very well off it and the prize money isnt bad either.
    Hold On Julio to win it for me but if Our Mick does turn up then i'll be on e/w. Just look back at his nhf and hurdle form, this horse has been consistently good all of his career, just hasnt got the recognition.
     
  2. Hold on Julio was one I'd picked out for the Grand National, he ticks almost every box in terms of having the right profile. Our Mick is definitely worth an ew tickle

    He'll have to jump better than he did last time if im to back him for the National. He hit nearly every fence and he cant get away with that at Aintree.

  4. Regarding Our Mick, McCain is discussing his stable in detail in the Racing Post today. Says the horse has a 'tentative' entry in the JLT at Cheltenham but says it is still a possibility he will miss the festival and go to Aintree instead. So no clearer really, though he does say the stable 'found out at Newbury that two and a half miles was just sharp enough for him in a good race'

  7. Had an email from the Telegraph, they're doing their Fantasy Cheltenham again, first prize is a grand and an iPad. So you can do that one for the money and leighton's tipser for the glory

    Got a tip for the County Hurdle. Jessie Harringtons Citizenship I got it at 14/1 last night and its gone into 11/1 with paddy power I have been told to do it each way but they feel it has a great chance of winning.
