Happy St. George's Day, everyone. No joy for us yesterday, I'm afraid as our first selection Sir Reginald ran a bit of a stinker really, meaning we had nothing on Admirable Duque, who belied his 20/1 odds by just fractionally missing out on a place.

Where I'm siding with the 9 yr old Meridiem who has shown signs of a return to his best form recently since a switch to Caroline Fryer's yard, making the frame of each of his last two runs.

Back Jezza and Meridiem in an each way double with BetVictor, the win part paying 35/1 (Best Odds Guaranteed), whilst the place double is currently 4.06/1.
