Anyone having a punt on this in honour of our soon to be (fingers and toes crossed) saviour?

I’ll be honest I have zero interest in horse racing but an annual excuse to spend Tuesday afternoon in the pub can’t be passed on.

If he has travelled well and no side side effects the favourite Vauban will take some beating on the day, but like all races you go with what you want and take no notice of anyone, dont see many bookies crying at the end of the month
