Irish National

I’ve had Lord Scoundrel down to be my biggest bet of the year for this for a while now, but the ground has probably gone against him for me to be as sure as I was before. He is a class animal at his best and is on a mark which he can certainly win off. I’ll still go for him at a huge price just in case but it’ll be a much-reduced bet. I have a sneaking fancy also the Paparrazi kid might run a big race at a huge price. He’ll go on the ground and should stay the trip, 66/1 is too big. My third selection represents the very good Irish Novice form. Snow Falcon is racing here of a mark that will well below his near top class 3 mile hurdles form and his run last time when he went after Monalee too early looks good now given all those horses good runs since. The fact that he didn’t go to Cheltenham is a big advantage and 25/1 looks a nice bit of value.
