The antepost favourite is Donald McCain's Ballabriggs who has been alloted 11 stone. Over the last couple of years the nature of the race has changed - it used to be that carrying over 11st practically ruled you out but the first two home last year and the first four the year before all carried 11 stone or over. Ballabriggs is 14/1 which is a value antepost punt for me as he's a quick horse and likes Good ground which you'd expect he'll get at Aintree in early April.
    Ahem.

    The cheek of ya! Had more on Backstage (Elliott had told a lot of people that he'd win if he got around but he lost any chance in the first mile) actually but I won't complain. Backed him antepost the day I posted that, thought he'd have gone off a good bit shorter what with the whole McCain factor.

    The serious injury suffered by Peter Toole took the gloss off a great day's racing - he remains in a serious condition and could have permanent head injuries.
