Like Christmas Day

Here we are Friday 17th March 2006 and it is Cheltenham Gold Cup Day. So exciting, feels like Christmas, only better.

Last year, it was sunny warm and 20 degrees, like in Morocco... today we will be lucky to make 5 in a cold wind under a grey misty sky.

Backing the same two horses as last year: Take The Stand, pictured here after finishing second at 66-1 and Ballycassidy (again 100-1). No Kicking King this year, so might do a saver on L' Ami (11-1) or Forget The Past (14-1). I do not rate any of the favourites at all.
