Mullins' Boston worth a few Bob

1.30 Triumph Hurdle

Alan King has a double handful here with Balder Success and Grumeti who both have solid form and it will have proved a very difficult decision for stable jockey Robert Thornton which to ride. A tentative nod is given to Balder Success.

Selection: Balder Success.

Over-priced: Ut De Sivola.

BETTING: Grumeti 5/1, Sadler's Risk 5/1, Baby Mix 6/1, Pearl Swan 7/1, Shadow Catcher 8/1, Balder Success 8/1, Darroun 12/1, Hisaabaat 12/1, Hollow Tree 14/1, Dodging Bullets 20/1 16/1, Urbain De Sivola 16/1, Hinterland 20/1, Kazlian 20/1, Countrywide Flame 20/1, Ut De Sivola 20/1, Lyvius 33/1, Argocat 40/1, Asaid 50/1, Royal Bonsai 50/1, West Brit 50/1, Zarzal 50/1, His Excellency 66/1, Dysios 66/1, Scoglio 66/1, Wingtips 66/1, Arctic Reach 100/1, Edeymi 100/1, Lifetime 100/1, Mattoral 100/1.

2.40 ALBERT BARTLETT NOVICES' HURDLE

The money has just kept coming for Willie Mullins' Boston Bob and the vibes just couldn't be better. That doesn't necessarily mean he is going to win, but his form is rock solid also and he'd be some way of clawing back a tough week for punters.

Selection: Boston Bob.

Over-priced: Aupcharlie.

BETTING: Boston Bob 6/4, Mount Benbulben 5/1, Sea Of Thunder 7/1, Rocky Creek 7/1, Brindisi Breeze 10/1, Make Your Mark 16/1, Ipsos Du Berlais 16/1, Ambion Wood 20/1 16/1, Lovcen 16/1, Sword Of Destiny 20/1, Benefficient 20/1, Cotton Mill 20/1, Felix Yonger 20/1, Deireadh Re 25/1, Fox Appeal 25/1, Hard To Swallow 25/1, Marasonnien 25/1, Vesper Bell 25/1, Aupcharlie 33/1, Benheir 33/1, Big Occasion 33/1, Buddy Bolero 33/1, Goulanes 33/1, Grand Vision 33/1, Sivola De Sivola 33/1, Alderwood 40/1, Cape Dutch 40/1, Nagpur 40/1, Poole Master 40/1, Go All The Way 50/1, The Druids Nephew 50/1, Aikideau 50/1, Brough Academy 50/1, Dawn Commander 50/1, Meister Eckhart 50/1, The Bosses Cousin 50/1, American Spin 66/1, Captain Moonman 66/1, Fill The Power 66/1, Tour Des Champs 66/1, Theleze 66/1, Ardkilly Gunner 100/1, Brass Tax 100/1, Hasty Times 100/1, Theatrical Star 100/1, Baldadash 150/1, Keenes Day 150/1, Super Villan 200/1.

3.20 Gold Cup

It looks a two-horse contest and if anything other than Kauto Star or Long Run win it, it'll be a poor reflection on the race. The Betting Book are just about siding with Kauto, although the Nicky Henderson team are simply flying.

Selection: Kauto Star.

Over-priced: Burton Port.

betting: Long Run 7/4, Kauto Star 7/2, Burton Port 7/1, Synchronised 10/1, Midnight Chase 10/1, Weird Al 11/1, Quel Esprit 14/1, What A Friend 33/1 25/1, Diamond Harry 33/1, Time For Rupert 33/1, China Rock 50/1, The Giant Bolster 50/1, Carruthers 66/1, Knockara Beau 100/1 66/1, The Midnight Club 100/1.

4.0 Foxhunter Chase

Ireland have trained the winner of this race just twice in the last decade but trust SalSIfy for Rodger and Colman Sweeney to go against the stats. He was very impressive when winning last time out and there is no reason why he shouldn't keep going here.

Selection: Salsify.

Over-priced: Boxer Georg.

BETTING: Chapoturgeon 11/2, On The Fringe 7/1, Salsify 8/1 7/1, Cloudy Lane 7/1, My Flora 9/1, Monkerty Tunkerty 10/1, Barbers Shop 12/1, Roulez Cool 14/1, Boxer Georg 14/1, Enter Paradise 14/1, Merchant Royal 16/1, Rowdy Rampage 16/1, Just Amazing 20/1, Description 20/1, Herons Well 20/1, Oscar Delta 25/1, Keenan's Future 25/1, Not Before Eight 25/1, Tammys Hill 25/1, Surenaga 33/1, Eleazar 33/1, Bradley 33/1, Oca De Thaix 33/1, Blackstaff 33/1, Count Salazar 33/1, Picaroon 33/1, Turko 33/1, Theatre Diva 40/1, Lorikarad 40/1, Offshore Account 40/1, The General Lee 40/1, Amicelli 50/1, Border Fusion 50/1, For The Staff 50/1, Up There 50/1, Joacci 100/1.

5.15 G rand Annual chase

The way the week has gone for Nicky Henderson, it would be fitting if he could top it off on the final day and win the race in honour of his father. However, Paul Nicholls' Toubab looked good the last day and will be hard to beat.

Selection: Toubab.

Over-priced: Lucky William.

BETTING: Toubab 7/1, Astracad 12/1 10/1, Bellvano 10/1, De Boitron 12/1 10/1, Kid Cassidy 8/1 10/1, Kumbeshwar 14/1 10/1, Tanks For That 10/1, Eradicate 12/1, Slieveardagh 12/1 16/1 12/1, Edgardo Sol 14/1, French Opera 14/1, Oiseau De Nuit 14/1, Renard 14/1, Anquetta 16/1, Cornas 16/1, Free World 20/1 16/1, Idarah 25/1 16/1, Lancetto 16/1, Lucky William 16/1, Tara Royal 20/1 16/1, Falcon Island 20/1, Niceonefrankie 20/1, Ultimate 20/1, Rileyev 25/1, King Edmund 33/1, Norther Bay 33/1, War Party 50/1, Novikov 66/1.
