Hello and welcome to our live web chat with Pricewise. We've had plenty of really good questions so let's get started.....
They are up against some really high class horses in Douvan, No More Heroes and More Of That, but I do think that both The Game Changer and Vyta Du Roc have good chances of at least hitting the frame
Of course, any price can be value if you think it under-represents any horse's chance. However, I don't bet in anything like big enough stakes to make backing any 2-5 shots much fun and the point with betting is to have fun
Having suggested him as an ante-post bet a month or so ago I'm certainly not going to desert him now, although I get the argument that his jumping may not be ideal for Aintree
Don Cossack ridden by Davy Russell would be my choice but I would be worried if Bryan Cooper rode him. Not because he isn't a brilliant jockey, but because of the pressure he would under given the few riding mishaps they have endured in recent times
Un De Sceaux. Brilliant horse but an accident waiting to happen
On good ground I think Un De Sceaux is beatable and I can't see why Sire De Grugy is three times the price of Sprinter Sacre
He is certainly being overlooked but I think this year's race is miles better than the one he won twelve months ago.Thistlecrack looks unbeatable
The best value is with Let's Dance, who I think will be ridden very differently next week
Ben Pauling. Barters Hill must have a great chance in the Albert Bartlett
Not a race I have looked at too closely but Paul Nicholls is very sweet on Diego Du Charmil and Gordon Elliott loves the race
Of course, our name is on the cup. Can't wait for Friday night
Yes. He's a strong stayer and that is often the key in the Supreme
With a perfect preparation I would fancy Annie against any two-mile hurdler not called Faugheen getting 7lb. However this is an afterthought and not that long ago it was touch and go whether she would even make the Festival. In short she is way too short a price
No not really, although the Mullins phenomenon and the way the bookmakers work these days has made it much more difficult.
I feel that I'm half forced into going for really long-priced horses because those at the head of the market tend to be a bigger price on the day
I did a pre season Jumps preview back in November and got some incredibly weird looks when I said that The New One was the one to back for the Champion Hurdle at around 33-1. Not sure I would get the same muted response now, but he still jumps out to the right under pressure and I just feel he might come up short again. He should hit the frame though
Douvan, Min and Annie Power. Are they all they are cracked up to be?
On form, no, but I would just like to see his stable in a bit better form
Those 'what price' questions are pretty personal. I'm have no clue what price Min will start or should be but I'm an Altior fan and would rather back him whatever Min's price
Yes but Bryan Cooper will be under a lot of pressure if he chooses to ride him
Yes. He might be better suited to the Gold Cup but the owners have three better chances in that race
The whole ground change angle is one I like to play at the Festival. During the rest of the jumps season hoping horses can bounce back to form after some poor runs doesn't
really work. However, if the ground is good next week then the form book will be turned on its head. That would be the difference between the Festival and the rest of the jumps season
