    John what’s tyour thoughts on cliffs of moher big move in the market for the Derby. Should we be worried

      Not really, I am happy enough with 33/1 on Churchill, we don’t know for certain if he will stay The Derby distance but the same can be said about Cliffs of Moher who I think won’t stay the 1m 4f at Epsom

      Anyone looking for savers in the race could go for either Tartini 25/1 or Sir John Lavery 16/1 who I think will be a definite runner for O’Brien

    Fire In His Eyes (NAP)
    I can’t believe Gigginstown Stud come here single handed, I thought they were the type of people that had 14 runners in a 30 runner Irish National “it’s a disgrace but I’m not here to talk about that”
    To start with here we have the favourite rated 136, Fire In His Eyes was rated 131 over hurdles but gives the impression that chasing will suit him better, he looks a horse that will make a good jumper over fences, his Hurdle form was decent with 2 wins from 3 this season, he was pulled up on his latest run in November but the ground was probably a bit too soft for him, better ground today over a 2m 4f distance should suit and the course pretty fair to all horses and flat which will also be better for this horse, word coming from the Elliott camp is that he has been working well and a big performance is expected

    Dorydalis (NB)
    Another Gigginstown horse but they go in double handed here,
    Just the one run in a point to point and looked quite good, a horse that we don’t have a lot to go on with form but again the word is he is working well at home and also a big performance is expected, I like the breeding here, his Sire Saddler Maker didn’t produce too many horses but his progeny have delivered the goods with the likes of Apples Jade, Alpha Des Obeaux and Bristol De Mai his main progeny, Jamie Codd takes the ride which should be a positive for this horse

    Vicky Park
    Looking through the breeding for this horse the Sire Compton Place has a pretty poor record for his progeny on fibresand but importantly the Dams Sire Red Clubs has a decent record and the Dam herself Sonko was 1 for 1 on fibresand,
    Vicky Park has in three races been second last in all runs but has shown signs that their is something in there so her mark of 46 in my opinion is low, she has finished her races giving me the impression that their was more in the tank and the fact their has been early money for her “now 7/2″ is a good sign
    Anyone looking at her action will say for definite that she won’t handle the fibresand but I see an action that looks like it could adapt to any surface, she does wander in her races so I am surprised that she doesn’t have any headgear on but I am also pleased because I don’t like horses wearing headgear early in their career,
    All in all picking this horse comes down to my own judgement and the confidence in my own ability to see what others can’t

    Forza Milan
    Making his handicap debut on a mark of 128 which looks a winnable mark, won last time out at Chepstow, jumped well enough but did get a bit close to a couple, his best form was when second to Rather Be in December, these two pulled right away from the rest and Forza Milan only went down by 2 1/2 lengths to a horse that unseated in the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham but won at Aintree, the Jonjo O’Neill yard are in decent form just now and should be getting another winner here

      Fire in his eyes never jumped a fence and the starting price for Vicky Park told you exactly how it would run 2nd last like all its other runs.

    Early nap/nb

    Westerner lady 15/8
    Fairy house 5.35

    Been given an 88 day break , ground and trip no issue , I think slow motion had a lot of tough races over last 5 months on testing ground , similar form levels but think westerner lady should be well on top
