Just had a quick chat with Thommo so apologies for the break in service.
DJ: Likes Peddlers Cross. Speed and stamina.
PN: Doesn’t want Mille Chief to win as he didn’t enter Celestial Halo – jpfestival.com’s fav horse!
MF: Says that Richard Johnson really likes Menorah. Likes Oscar Whisky. Says that Patrick Mullins thinks there is no way that Menorah will beat Hurricane Fly.
AL: HF is a bit of a brute
TS: Surprised a little bit that Paul Townend not on HF. Likes Paul Townend a lot. But can’t argue with Ruby. They are massively confident in Ireland about HF. Cathryn Fry – jpfestival.com writer – confirms this from her contacts.
PN: Doesn’t fancy Dunguib at all.
TS: Same. Ground no good for Dunguib.
RW: Sportingbet make Menorah favourite. Wants to keep on right side of HF and JP Festival tip Peddlers Cross.
TS: Goes for HF
MF: HF – Mille Chief not sighted.
Onto Day 2….and the Neptune
