The mulligan idea seems really bad - other than that it looks good
Happy to scratch it if others agree
I personally think it’s useful if horses get injured or change plans
Can take luck out of the equation too if use them strategically

maybe less will work better ?

When do you have to have your tips in by?
Only got MC so far,Nickajack Cave.
Up in class and distance but first time gear change,cobalt in.Keep safe.
Accepting selections up until the Friday before the George Main, so there's a while

No rush to submit but thought I would get the thread rolling so we could talk about some of the futures in here too

Not worried about Sauvestre being beaten in a BM72 at Canterbury on a Wednesday in his Golden Rose ambitions?
