Two returns on Friday, with Alan picking a 2nd at 25/1, and David landing a 10/11 winner: well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.

Annaf won 6/5
Jet Of Magic in the 14:55 at Sandown Park
Pablo Del Pueblo - 13.51 Lingfield
Remastered 2.55 Sandown.
Iolani 15:48 Muss EW Nap
Frero Banbou in the 13.45 at Sandown is today’s selection.
I don’t often read the RP so not sure if there’s anything about the participation of Bowtogreatness in the Grade 1 novice chase at Sandown this afternoon? I believe Ben Pauling really thinks a lot of this horse but what he’s done so far wouldn’t appear to warrant an entry for this. Currently available at 33/1 (was 50s) so I’ve had a bit ew as I don’t want to miss out when he does come good.
Battleoverdoyen. e.w. 16.10. Leopardstown. Currently 33/1.
Nap Ling 1426 Annaf
Got 2s last night (not the usual fingers)
Am I alone in hoping G de C gets beat? I'm not wishing the horse any ill but the Gold Cup will look a lot more open if he does. The Champion Chase is a lot more exciting now Energumine has come unstuck.
Ew nap. Schalke. Sandown 2.55.
Carzola 12.40 lingfield
Alnadam 3.23 Wetherby is the nap,well done yesterdays winners.
3.40 Leopardstown - Freedom To Dream
A competitive contest, as you’d expect, with a handful of horses in decent form dominating the betting. I think Celebre D’Allen is 5 or 6 points longer than he should be and he makes most appeal in this extra place race.
Celebre D’Allen has started favourite in 4 of his last 6 races, including the two this season. Connections must believe he is well up to winning again at this level. He was keen on his seasonal debut at Warwick over 20f (2/1 fav) and it’s probable that this was the cause of him not getting home in his first attempt at 3 miles (finished 4th). He dropped back in trip next time at Wincanton and was just never going (85/40 fav) – that was not his form. Still, in our favour, he has been dropped 4lbs since by the handicapper.
On Saturday he’s in cheekpieces for the first time to try to cool his keenness, and we will likely know our fate early. But the yard is in good form now having struggled for most of the season. The horse is 11, but has had comparatively little racing with only 20 career runs. He won three from four last season. His sole defeat was a 5th in the Festival Plate at the festival, where he was beaten just 10 lengths. Hopefully this will be the day he returns to that kind of form. I've backed him EW at 14/1 to 5 places with Skybet.
