Scottish National party How fantastic that Merigo has become the first Scottish-trained hero of the Scottish Grand National since dear old Ken Oliver won it with Cockle Strand in 1982. I trust Ken's maxim of "win or lose, we'll have the booze" will be observed. Well done Merigo and Andrew Parker (with a bit of help from Timmy Murphy, of course!) Mary, Queen of Scots Don't write off Cliffs It's always dangerous to shout champion, and it's just as dangerous writing a horse off. Canford Cliffs may turn out to be better than Dick Turpin in the long run. I would definitely not write him off just yet. He could turn out to be a supercrack sprinter. Six furlongs looks ideal.

Birals, Italy Think July Cup Canford Cliffs looks to have six-furlong sprinter written all over him. He is surely more of a July Cup horse than a potential Guineas contender.

Andrew Scott, Maidstone Keep Cityscape in mind Really delighted to see Hayley Turner pick up a decent prize with Brunston, but from a very rough Spring Cup, stablemate Cityscape looks a certain future winner.

Graham Smith Good luck Sizing I am happy to eat humble pie as I never thought, after his disappointments in hurdling, that Sizing Europe would make a chaser. He certainly has, and I wish him and connections the best of luck for the Champion Chase at Punchestown next week.

Archieskye A brilliant decision to run Sizing Europe in the Champion Chase. Always strike while the iron is hot. It adds fascination to the race.

Andrew Peilis Reason to be cheerful Judging by the glum expressions on the faces of the Queen and Richard Hannon at Newbury (page 3) before Royal Exchange ran, second place was probably far better than they were expecting!
