  • Top of the evening Abs.
    Especially on decent-ish ground, the Irish GN stats are pretty unreliable (for the most part) but the %'s do favour those at the bottom of the weights. Only 1 of last 13 winners carried >10.08 and only 2 >10.05.
    I like the look of (5 places each way of course)
    GALLANT OSCAR 14/1
    LOS AMIGOS 22/1 and
    ROGUE ANGEL 28/1
    Luck maith.

  • Going for Folsom Blue @ 25s.
  • Los Amigos a non-runner.
  • Shut The front Door .. for me .. just
  • Going for Folsom Blue @ 25s.

    Looks very good value at 25s - good luck mid_life_crisis.

    I'm sorely tempted to follow your lead but I'm going to plump for Saoirse Dun, also 25/1, as replacement for Los Amigos.
  • Oh what the hell. With 5 places, I'll join you with Folsom Blue to have 4 running for me.
    Best of luck all.

    I took a punt on Letter of Credit at 33s so avoid that one!

    Gone for Gallant Oscar in line with Peanuts' advice too.

    Len, you need to have a word with little_girl.
    No hogging the winner to herself this time. Tips please!

    Good luck alan. If memory serves me, didn't you back virtually the entire first 4 or 5 in the 2013 GN?

  • Good memory ! It was the first 3 and the 5th ! Had a complete blank this year though ! I've been backing Liz Doyle's horses for about a month, she's been in red hot form.

    Rich Revival had a good run over hurdles recently, though today's going might not suit
  • Nice one. Best of luck today.

    50's on bet365.

    I think Letter of Credit looks interesting too.

    I've gone for Peanuts' tips, also having an extremely uneducated punt on Letter of Credit and Golden Wonder.

    Cheers Len\'s_little_girl.
    There is a lot of value about some decent chances in this race. 50s looks very appealing relative to Touch The Eden's 12/1, given that Mullins has such an atrocious record in the Irish GN.
    Good luck LLG.
  • My murphy
  • Come on guys, we'll have backed the whole field by kick off :o)

    Thanks chaps .. I know all about McCoy and Walsh .. BUT .. Geraghty is my favourite jumps jockey EVER .. ((:>) .. and McManus is having a terrific season as owner .. Incidentally .. Julian Wilson died today .. age 73 .. to me he always looked 65, even as a young man .. RIP
  • Great run from the near missers, Golden Wonder (nice pick Len\'s_little_girl and alan) and Saoirse Dun. Both within a length of the winner. A fine run by the veteran Jamsie Hall and Folsom Blue looked pretty unlucky - appeared to be badly hampered by a faller about 4 out but stayed on strongly.
    Saoirse Dun and (courtesy of mid_life_crisis - cheers Chief) Folsom Blue got me out with a 52% profit. Thank gawd Los Amigos was a non runner :o)
    Shutthefrontdoor carried more weight (10.13) than any winner since Commanche Court in 2000. Nonetheless, the bias to the bottom of the card continues. 50% of the 26 starters carried 10.06 or less but they represented 6 of the first 7 home.
  • Wow, the fav wins for the first time since 1999. Well done Lincs.

    RIP Julian W.
    Another win for BG - like shelling peas. Gave STFD the perfect ride. Enjoy your celebratory bevvy Lincs - I reckon we all will tonight.

  • Each ways on Saoirse and Folsom, so a nice way to top off a brilliant win for the Reds!

    Tempered by the sad news about Julian Wilson...Rest in Peace.
  • Had STFD £25 e/w and also Folsom Blue £10 e/w so very happy
  • RIP racing legend
  • Sad news re JW.
    Grew up with him and Sir Peter O'Sullevan, in the days when the BBC took racing seriously.
    Quality coverage without the modern trend to overhype.
