Hello Sailor?

Papillon, with delighted jockey Ruby Walsh, wins the 2000 Martell Grand National, at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool. * 02/04/01 Papillon (left, green top), ridden by jockey Ruby Walsh, jumping the last fence on his way to win the 2000 Martell Grand National. Papillon will be able to defend his Martell Grand National crown after the Irish Department of Agriculture today permitted horses to travel to Britain for the three-day Aintree fixture.

Once more into the breach we go dear friends as I am 100% convinced that Ahoy Senor will win another big race some day, and I am frightened it will be when I don’t tip him or back him – we all know that feeling, right?  

Lucinda Russell has put on a brace face since he was pulled up at Wetherby in the Charlie Hall after making a couple of errors but we all know that on his day he is a class act.

He does have to carry top-weight here which must be why he is as big a price as he is (18/1 as I write), but if he can get into a rhythm I doubt they travel this far south without good reason, and a place would pay for the weekends beers if nothing else.
