31/03 - This weeks selection is going to be Gaillard Du Mesnil for the Festival Novices' Chase
He ran a cracker behind the excellent Bob Olinger in the Ballymore. I think Bob just had too much speed for him that day and GDM actually stayed on well I thought and he has done nothing wrong so far in his career. I think he will most likely be campaigned at 3 miles next year having won at 2 miles 6, whereas Bob has the speed and I think will end up in the Marsh next year. I think this years' Albert Bartlett wasn't the best renewal and can’t have Gaillard at 25/1 if he goes here when Vanillier is 10/1 favourite! It's a long way out but I think if he starts off his chasing career well, will be much shorter come the festival.
