Three good winners on Sunday - well done. EGS Friday winner now on the sheet - apologies. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Another low sun fiasco at Cheltenham today. I'm told it's pretty much unknown in France for racing to be re-organised in any way due to low sun.
I thought Bob Olinger was being very carefully nursed today, with Rachael holding the reins like a puppeteer with frayed strings. It was as though she believed something could go amiss. Very tame finish from him and he'd be off my tracker if I had one. I Lie To Move It looks to be all grit - one to keep on side. I like Fennor Cross too. He should continue improving.
That was meant to be a reply to Quai, further down.
I think Murder was the least of Caravaggio's foibles. Derek Jarman may have taken licence but apart from the 'Book of Kells' (produced by Holy Monks [yes. I'm sure they behaved well]) the greatest single piece of Art is by a man who was mad, bad and dangerous to know.
There is an argument that Francis Bacon is Ireland's greatest ever Artist but I think he didn't like association with Nationalism but he is also a Man who I would walk out of a Pub if he walked in.
Last year in a coffee break for my team someone suggested Ed Sheeran sells records because he is "nice". and "down to earth" Luckily she didn't report me when I got in to the flow that the above 3 examples were not produced by nice people.

I don't consider this aftertiming as it is irrelevant to this competition.
I did indeed back ' Home By The Lee' in the Lismullen as that is where my Home is and I often back him on that basis to no avail. 28/1. Not bad.
Back in to the reality of this competition.
l am napping Ben Bulben. In the 14.00 Exeter.
W.B. Yeats is buried at the foot of Ben Bulben in a beautiful Graveyard that I highly recommend.
The Sire is named after Jack Yeats who was more talented than his brother and chose not to be buried under Ben Bulben.
A mistake by connections, me thinks in naming the Horse.
That is my nap.
