    ITV coverage is over. Anyone got a stream?

    We have tumbled, as though through error, into a world which by all evidence was not intended for us. We cling to a fragment of a grain of sand until such time as the chill of death shall return us to primal matter. We strut for a tiny moment upon a tiny stage, well knowing that all our aspirations are doomed to ultimate failure and that everything we have achieved will perish with our race leaving the universe as though we had never existed.

    Dropsy, brilliant stuff with Labaik!

    Hard to believe a Laytown runner is a Cheltenham winner. Well he didn't really "run" at Laytown but he was there.

    Very glad that the opening post in the thread turned out ok. Good performance by PM to get 3rd place. His hurdling could have been better but he was no match for the impressive winner.

    Beautiful price on Altior! But would have been interesting if Charbel didn't fall.

    Giggity giggity! 3 for Gordon and 2 for Gigginstown. I'd say one more for Elliott could be enough to take top trainer.

    Tough day tomorrow. Hoping to see another aeroplane performance by Douvan.

    I'm struggling with the Neptune and RSA. I had been keen on Bacardys but Bunk Off Early didn't do his form much good today. It's interesting that Bon Papa 14/1 looks to be the second choice Mullins horse ahead of Kemboy. He only won a gaff maiden but must be quite good.

    Last year's Supreme was very high quality as we know (Altior, Min, Buveur D'Air, Charbel, Petit Mouchoir) and the 4th, 6th and 7th from that race are all in the Coral Cup on similar marks - Tombstone, Mister Miyagi and Supasundae. All could go well here. If Hargam has been plotted for this race then he's a shoo-in but I'm more inclined to think that he's regressing. I'll probably just do something silly like back Bravissimo @ 40/1.

    Cross Country: is Cause Of Causes out for a prep run before the Grand National or is he fully ready for a third Festival win? I've no idea.

    In the Bumper I've had a bit on Cause Toujours @ 8/1. Looks a proper tool.

    Well I had a brilliant day yesterday makes up for last years! Today looks very tough, Old Guard looks a big price to me in the coral cup @ 26/1 on the machine.

    That looked an awful fall from Mark Walsh but no mention in commentary so I assume he must be OK

    About time I had a winner

    Still in shock at Douvan. What the hell!

    I made a few quid on Special Tiara but only in the "w/o the fav" market. Annoying that I didn't risk a few quid e/w in the main market. My other bets today were mostly shit.

    Class by Elliott and Codd today. 5 winners for Elliott should be enough to win top trainer and he could easily have another couple on each of Thursday and Friday. Mullins' record of 8 wins under threat.

    Some great finishes, especially in the RSA. But a poor ride by Nico on the winner there I thought.

    Tomorrow I'm trying to keep it simpler:
    Empire Of Dirt @ 5/2
    Unowhatimeanharry @ 6/4
    Thomas Crapper @ 9/1 e/w
    and Yorkhill if he drifts a bit in the morning.

    It's crazy that it was 7/2 for Douvan to lose on course. I was tempted at that price.
