Cheltenham 2012, day four

A great day yesterday including a 14/1 winner. I got it at 20/1 on the machine so I'm pretty pleased with that. Big Buck's was, as the yanks would say, awesome.

Trickier day today so I won't be going mad - finally decided to go with Long Run in the Gold Cup although you'd want a heart of stone to begrudge a win for Kauto.

Race by race guide below and today's in-running trades are at the bottom.

The Tom George trained Baby Mix makes appeal. He’s a temperamental sort so let’s hope he’s in a good mood but he impressed when winning his trial race at Kempton last time and can get punters off to a good start at 6/1.
The last five winners have gone off in double figure prices so it’s not a race for heavy punting.  Edgardo Sol gets a token each-way vote at a big price following some good displays in handicaps of late.
Willie Mullins’ Boston Bob should be a solid enough bet at 7/4. He’s a great jumper; he stays well and is one we’ll be hearing a lot more about in the future.
One of the most anticipated Gold Cup renewals in years. It would be a great racing story if Kauto Star takes the Blue Riband event once again but Long Run will be tuned to the minute and may just have the edge over his older rival.
A wide-open race that often goes to a big-priced outsider. Dermot Weld’s Merchant Royal is a tentative selection at 14/1. He was a good pointer and will have no problem staying the distance.
David Pipe would love to win the race named after his father I like the look of Street Entertainer at 8/1. He’s been below form of late but the softening ground will suit and connections are expecting improvement today.
A big field handicap is not the best race to get out of jail if you’ve been unfortunate enough to have done your dough all week! Rank Outsider King Edmund will carry a small few quid for me each-way. He’s improving over fences and may sneak a place in a wide-open contest.
