[Notes: I've only included blog's highlighted selections; non-highlighted opinions contained both winners and losers. For example, the two Arkle opinions (Forpadydeplasterer and Planet Of Sound) were first and third respectively at 8/1 and 10/1.]

Much to my surprise, the figures read reasonably well. Of course, it would have been a completely different tale had Punjabi not managed to hang on in the Champion Hurdle by a fast-diminishing neck...
