    What are we thinking for the GC?

    I'm struggling to pick it apart Tbh. Galvin seems the obvious after turning over A'Plus Tard but Cheltenham is a different beast and the GC is run at a ferocious pace. He'll have to improve again. Minella Indo has flopped repeatedly this season but seems to save his best for Cheltenham. Al Boum Photo done what he had to do last time out but I think he may be a bit of a spent force, regaining the GC has only happened once for a reason and that was an all time great.

    If there is another downpour I might opt for Royal Pagaille. Otherwise I'm going to gamble that Protektorat relaxes into this if he doesn't have to make the running and can run a big race at 8s.

    Looking at Royal Pagaille each way. Almost impossible to pick the winner

    Agreed. I'm still with Minella Indo - proven, but EW has to be the tactic.

    Iíve found myself drawn to Porticello too and ended up having a fair bet on him.

    Gold cup is tough, I donít love anything, and despite never being on its side previously, think Iíll end up playing Al Boum Photo at 12s. Maybe that could change once I get my head in the RP! I was on Minella Indo last year but not especially keen on that one (or anything else) this time round.

    Knew Porticello was never going to win from early on, was never going to make all.

    1st day profits have been eroded a bit, not too bad though. Hopefully Concertista can get over the line in the next for a nice end to the week.

    Much as I love the Cheltenham festival, a thought for the 4 horses who tragically had to be put down, RIP.
