    I am, as you youngsters so poetically call it, minted. All I need now are for my Augusta picks ( Rose at 45-1, Casey at 70-1 and Els at 200-1) to get a place (I don't expect them to win), and I can relax.

    @rockavitch on BBC website it says

    17.23 Just to give you an update on Balthazar King. He had a bad fall and got back up on its feet, but is being assessed at the track.

    @wrinkly He's a degenerate though, mad poker player, has placed in the top 5 of the Sunday Poker Million 3 times and places FAR too much money on Snooker.

    It works though, man's rolling in it.

    \o/ won!

    Though it was a sweepstake. I got £25 from a £1 stake though.

    It looks like Rose and Casey will put me in the money again, just Ernie let me down, but another 300 quid to go with the 420 on the National, so not a bad weekend, all said and done.

    Yeah, I've gone for milansbar and see you at midnight e/w and Blaklion on the nose.

    I've spread it around a bit and have about 10 horses covered. I imagine none of them will do what I want but I made a bit at Cheltenham so we'll see.

    Are we all pinsticking or has anyone got any actual knowledge?

    I normally pick mine by how pretty the livery is or if the name of the horse sounds a bit rude.

    Blaklion has drifted...not sure why, been out.

    National is mostly pingsticking tbh, but I did look at weight and whether they liked soft ground. Stayer should win this given the ground.

    My dad says that every single fucking time anything with horse racing is on. So I felt obliged to say it.

    I generally read up on things to a degree like Dougs.

    Not worked this year!
