I thought I was on my own as I posted on this thread last night
Mtoto stuck To his guns. Not even Lee could persuade him any differently. He always posted his selections pre race at a time when many could only after time after the event.I read this thread Chesham , well done with your 5/7 yet again another impressive stay.
I read that Mtoto has passed over which I think is very sad. He once said I'd never get it, I hope I can prove to his spirit that I have learned and will eventually get it. A loss to the forum.
Stay well and good luck

Comment: Small interest in Fedelio Vallis for me.
AtR form verdict in comparison.
FIDELIO VALLIS makes his handicap debut off what looks a useful mark. Paul Nicholls' gelding was placed in Listed company over timber at this track and has arguably improved for the switch to fences, winning races at Fontwell and Southwell by wide margins. Topofthecotswolds reverts to chasing after some useful displays over timber, while Shut The Box won nicely enough at Newbury last time and could make an impact in this.
Top Tip: FIDELIO VALLIS (2)
Watch out for: TOPOFTHECOTSWOLDS (4)
