buttysbets: Thomas Macdonagh ran well. Just struggled to get home in the brutal conditions. Finishing just outside the places in 4th. Think 1 maybe 2 books paid 4 places. No joy for me with only 3 places. 2 to run.

buttysbets: 4 for tomorrow. 20/1 for Thomas Macdonagh is absolutely mental IMO. Can’t see him finishing outside the first 3 if he runs his race. GL all.
