BetVictor are saying they are refunding bets on Tofino Bay though don't see anybody else saying it:

I have just looked at the weather forecast for Aintree for the rest of the week , there is a total of 3mm of rain forecast,with winds of between 10 and 20mph.the current going is good to soft , good in places.With so little rain and drying winds , you can expect the going to be at least good on Saturday , unless they water the course . Why is this of significance , well it will suit my selection down to the ground , which is BALTHAZAR KING , who has a really nice weight in 10st 12lbs , and with IMPERIAL COMMANDER set to take his chance that will be the weight he will carry . He missed the Xcountry at Cheltenham because of the going , which in hindsight was a blessing , I have pointed out before , his record after having a 60 day break ,since going chasing is 1-1-1-1-1 . Whether missing Cheltenham was the original intention or not I don't know , but I do know he has a 100% record(chasing) when fresh , has a very good weight to carry , likes good going , and has won over 3M7F so should stay .

just found this gem for the national , if you fancy teaforthree 14/1 at the time of writing ,then you have really got to fancy HARRY THE VIKING ,at the time of writing 40/1 ,there is 2 runs which stand out for me ,the first is the amateur 4 miler last march at cheltenham where teaforthree won the race by 2 lenths from harry the viking off level weights , in the national htv is going to recieve 11 pounds from tft ,which is a big turnaround , and i also think htv will love the good ground which we should get come saturday ,the other run is in the hennessy at newbury where bobs worth won and tft was 6th with htv 9th receiving 4lb that day and 8l behind tft ,and imo was very tenderly handled that day (watch the race if you can ),is last race when he was half way down the field was after a 3 month break , so all in all if you fancy tft you have got to fancy the viking at nearly treble the odds tft is ,so its harry the viking for me at 40/1 Each Way of course

good point andy180

on that note you have to like join together too, who has beaten teaforthree and is proven around aintree.

big run in the becher chase too

two lively outsiders are quiscover fontaine and becauseicouldntsee too.

theres a good henessy stat floating about so can see both teaforthree and harry the viking running well, good luck
