The Stayers Hurdle is the highlight of the day and this looks a very good renewal.

I've backed Supasundae ante-post but the ground may have gone against him.

I've backed Bacardys (15/2 BetBright) as a saver as I think this will be ideal for him.

He does nothing quickly but he's a dual Grade 1 winner with the scope to improve for this step up in trip, and I think he will be involved at the death.

I grew up watching Hearts games with my dad and playing football at every opportunity so betting on it was the logical next step! Football coupons became a Saturday ritual and it introduced me into the world of horse racing. I started watching it on a regular basis, and after Galileo's Derby win in 2001 I was hooked. I follow both flat and national hunt racing attending the northern meetings when possible.
