Haven't seen a thread kicking around yet & it all kicks off today! Anyone looking forward to it as much as me? Got the Thursday & Friday off work, nothing better than getting all the lads together down the boozer & watching the racing!

    mullins horse in the opener looks very inexperienced for a race like that and ruby usually picks the right one so might see a upset price wise

    Never had a bet for ages on the horses, might have to the day.

    Moscow Flyer v Azertyioup v Well Chief in the Queen mother, Kauto Star v Denman in the Gold Cup some great races from down the years.

    Wouldn't be backing melon. Only short odds to due trainer/jockey partnership. I mean, it could win but at 3/1 there's better options there
