    I know nothing about horses, like yourself I read stuff on here about some of the races/meetings and follow some of the tips/advice.

    Pretty Boy etc will have way better info than me but for what itís worth Iím on -

    Folsom Blue, Daklondike, Fagan and Vicente

    First 3 are each way tips from various pals and Vicente I placed as a free bet on Paddypower as it won this very race the last two years.

    Haven't looled at the field but Vicente will have a chance.

    It was on my shortlist for Aintree until it was withdrawn due to the going.

    According to something I read earlier 10 of the last 13 winners carried 10st 9lbs or less.

    Both of Trevor Hemmings horses will be in the running: Vicente and Vintage Clouds. The latter looks particularly well treated with the weights.

    I’d also be looking at Fagan for Gordon Elliot. I’ve always thought The Young Master looks the type to pick up a marathon staying race and both he and Lovely Job look interesting options at longer odds.

    The Scottish Champion Hurdle is usually a good race but there’s still a lot of horses in at the moment who won’t run so I’m wary of suggesting anything until declarations in the coming days.

    Just looked at the current field.

    Vicente 2nd top weight but still carrying less than last year so will have a good chance.

    Agree with Pretty Boy that Vintage Clouds and Lovely Job look to have a chance given what they are carrying.

    I bet on Vintage Clouds at the start of the week. Would have snuk in the Aintree National if reserves werenít closed so early. Nice weight and has been running well also season including at Cheltenham and in the Welsh National.

    I quite like backing a novice chaser in the Scottish National, at this stage of the season theyíve generally had a fair bit of experience and are normally a bit lower in the weights.

    1 I like the look of is Looking Well ew at 20-1,was gonna hose up at Musselburgh on his last start until the horse jinked badly going to the last fence and threw the jockey off!! Only got 10-5 on its back so given a good clear round he must have every chance of a place,enjoy!!

    Thanks for your replyís.. Iíve tried to read the form and Iím going for glencairn view E/W 18/1 .. might throw on another thinking Fagan or vintage clouds..

    The 2 I've been looking at are Gold Present and Sizing Tennessee. Gold Present's carrying a big weight and is unproven over the trip but IMO he'll stay and it looks as if he's been put away for this. Sizing Tennessee is a bold jumping front runner, and he could well sort out the men from the boys, so we'll see.

    Sadly not mate. I had a look at it but I couldnít see it winning. Courage in my convictions is not a quality I possess

    Vintage Clouds ran another excellent race and youíve got to think a big handicap is just around the corner for him.
