Jump for joy it's time for Cheltenham

Does anyone here have any locks or longshots?

Anyone excited to see Kauto Star in the Gold Cup?

I'm thinking Montbazon looks awfully good in that first race tomorrow... he should be at pretty nice odds.

Nice picks. Good luck!

R1, Montbazon

R2, Sprinter Sacre (agree no one can beat this one. Not worth playing but...)

R3, The Package (I'd be happy to see Our Mick do well here)

R4, Binocular wins, Hurricane Fly will be brave in defeat but oh how I hope Celestial Halo does well.

R5, Sizing Australia

R6, Still looking at this one. I like Ixora, Violin Davis and What a Charm so still pondering.

R7, White Star Line (no I have not lost my mind. It could happen).

I'm sitting out tomorrow... am hoping Grands Crus wins the RSA Chase and while you're probably right about Kauto Stone I have to root for Sizing Europe and Big Zeb in that one.

Gonna get a head start on Thursday but continued luck to you and to anyone playing.

Lest I forget you'd probably be able to answer this... was Voy Por Ustedes officially retired? I loved that old guy. Monkerhostin too.

Just reading that Nicky Henderson had 4 winners yesterday .I don't know if this 4-winners-in-one day feat has been achieved before , such is the ultra-competitive nature of Cheltenham , but it couldn't have been done too many times. I also believed that he is now the winningmost trainer in the history of the festival . Take a bow , Nicky.

Holy crap, I have no idea which horse and rider, but they didn't make it over the hurdle without falling.

I'm new to this kind of racing. Do the horses fall a lot jumping over the hurdles?

How do they decide who is in front for the start?

Well, never mind, I answered my own question about horses falling a lot.

The Ryanair Chase was the most exciting race of the year so far. Terrific stuff.
