Cheltenham Preview Night - Aintree



I attended the Cheltenham Preview night at Aintree last night and the usual pundits and trainers were in attendance namely Charlie Longsdon, Ben Pauling, John Parrott, Andy Holding and John Morris.

The whole event was filmed by William Hill and this will be on their website shortly to view/listen to ?

Essentially the panel were all over the Mullins horses throughout - Douvan, Un De Sceaux and Faugheen on Day 1 and put up alternatives such as L'Ami Surge, Qewy (ew) in Supreme - Kitten Rock in the Champion Hurdle etc.
On Day 2 the two I noted in the Neptune were Windsor Park and Beast of Burden - in the RSA I noted Southfield Theatre - in the Queen Mother Hidden Cyclone(may run Ryanair).
On Day 3 in the World Hurdle I noted Monksland and Jetson(ew) and Module in the Ryanair and Day 4 in the Gold Cup there were words for virtually every runner and those that got more than others were Coneygree, Holywell and Djakadam.
But these evenings tend to cloud your judgment rather than help it and although you get some information of some use a lot of it is what you already know and I generally go to see if anyone backs up my own view.
Anyway you can form your own opinions once you have listened to what William Hill put out on their website in the next few days.
