    Crashed so many times given up, its funny the cavernous sound there, I’ve been at an event in that room its not the people there being rude and loud they are whispering…its the room! seriously its not the right place for a broadcast.
    Phil said some odd things about chance of the french horse getting in at 68 and then the ‘boost’ for Highland Lodge to get in lol.

  5. pablo says:

    Figure after the horse indicates difference from last week’s rating (horse may have run since) or latest OR on RP where no GB or IRE rating available.

    Highland Lodge clobbered +8; Tiger Roll +7. No love for Gordon Elliott

    Its best said once Gav :)

  10. Mike N says:

    My 3 for the race is as follows…

    Vicente 10-5 33-1
    One For Arthur 10-6 20-1
    Ucello Conti 10-7 33-1

  11. Mike N says:

    one would expect oddschecker to turn sky blue very soon. ;)

  12. Seven Towers says:

    Right. Who is going to go through that lot in terms of headgear?!

  13. Mike N says:

    the weights will go up 3,4,or 5 pounds for definite. the first 3 wont run. Then its down to the next 3 to decide the top weight.

  14. miinnehoma says:

    Raz De Maree with 4 runs this season has won the Cork Grand Nat. and close 2nd in the Welsh National to the 2nd fav for the Gold Cup
    and yet HIGHLAND LODGE on OR140 with only 1 run is given 2lb more on 10-06 and a far better chance to make the cut.
    Poor Hadrian’s Approach on the same OR140 as HIGHLAND is given 9-12.

  15. pablo says:

    Waiting until race day – so many non runners I reckon – or failing that half the field should be running somewhere else – weakest GN I can remember in terms of staying handicappers

    Fewer than half the top 34 horses, GN OR 150 and above are what I would call staying handicappers – and I think I’m being generous!

  16. Seven Towers says:

    Gigginstown have 12 of the top 40 and that doesn’t even include the two they probably want to run in this. Could be that none of those 12 turn up!

  17. Gavman says:

    Alary is 11.4. I fear for the horse if they let him carry that weight around the Aintree course. Surely he will be pulled!!

  18. Mike N says:

    Pablo if its any consolation my 3 are intended runners. :D

  19. Mike N says:

    the thread ‘Grand National 2017 – weights revealed’ has started so I suppose we better head over there…

  20. pablo says:

    I know Mike and they all look to have a solid chance – just want to see how the race is shaping up once all the preps have been run

  21. kj says:

    yep alot to like in the trad weights there Mike.

  22. PenguinKeeper says:

    I’m angry but reckon tony Martin/jp will be livid with 3 lb drop for Gallant Oscar. Won’t get in now. Phil taking the piss imo. 146 to 143. Thunder 140 to 144. Unjustifiable imo.rogue angel interesting off 145. As long as Bryan not on.

  23. Pollyowls says:

    Maggio & Saphir Du Rheu declared to run in the Ivan Straker Memorial at Kelso on Thursday…

  24. Pollyowls says:

    A quick reminder that the voting remains open for this stage until Sunday at midnight
    We’ve had six votes so far… and six different winners have been selected!!

  25. Showlad says:

    Any latecomers (including me) for the First round of the Grand National vote:

    Round 2 of the Vote will open on Tues 28th Feb for the first elimination stage and will close Sunday of that week at midnight.

    Any latecomers for the first vote please try and have your vote up by this Sunday at midnight and add in to table accordingly.

    Thanks :) :)

  26. ESB says:

    It is very worrying.

    I haven’t seen a stupid angry rant about Phil Smith from either of the O’Leary brothers so far today.

    I do hope they are not ill!
