Vi­sion looks good for Ballymore


YOU won’t get fat back­ing Sam­cro in the Ballymore Novices’ Hur­dle.

Gor­don El­liott’s hot­pot, un­beaten in six, has the form in the book to sug­gest he’ll be very dif­fi­cult to beat.

But I’m told you could do a lot worse than back­ing VI­SION DES FLOS each-way. Colin Tiz­zard’s fiveyear-old was a win­ner in a bumper at Punchestown last year and hacked up in the mud at Ex­eter.

A highly re­spected mole at one of the many pre­view nights I at­tended as­sured me: “He’s a banker to go well”.

Quite what that means I’m not ex­actly sure — will it win or won’t it!

Peo­ple in rac­ing talk in ifs and buts, how­ever I’ve never com­pletely shaken the ex­pen­sive habit of chuck­ing a few quid at ed­u­cated whis­pers.

I’ll also be throw­ing a dart at Wil­lie Mullins’ AL BOUM PHOTO in the Ryanair.

He’s a banker to go well.
