  1. Re: Cheltenham Chat But he is in 7th just behind the leaders pulling double up the hill? Where is he supposed to be, front run? Was a good ride, horse is a non-stayer. Jockey did well to save so much on him. Different ride and he wouldn't even placed.
  2. Re: Cheltenham Chat That was a pretty decent ride to be fair, just outstayed.
  3. Re: Cheltenham Chat Not that Grands Crus would've won (wasn't right/didn't stay), but as it turned they might have chosen the tougher race :lol
  4. Re: Cheltenham Chat So Salut Flo would've won in December after all? :p
  5. Re: The Jockey Thread This is the best ride I've ever seen. Barry Geraghty at his absolutely best. Someone here said he is overrated :lol
  6. Re: Cheltenham Chat I think Ruby and AP gave them too much rope, but fair play to Jason and Noel. Top class riding!
  7. Re: Cheltenham Chat BKI must be going mad on course. He has Cinders and Sacre with massive stakes :notworthy
  8. Re: Tues: 4.40 David Nicholson Mares Hurdle Good offer in VC with 4 places w/o Quevega. I'm fancying Dare To Doubt, who is the 2nd best rated in the race and won a very competitive handicap in Ireland off 131. Not sure chasing is her game and back hurdling she can run well today. Open race, but 16/1 with 4 places is worth a shot imo.
  9. Re: Tues: 4.00 Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase I'm not looking past Uncle Junior and Scotsirish here. Prob EW for both. Both beat Garde Champetre this year and both will probably do the same today. Not so sure how strong the form of last year is and I'm opposing both Sizing and Maljimar. Small saver on Gone To Lunch, who might perk up in this kind of race and he usually is a good stayer, so 40/1 is worth a nibble.
  10. Re: Tues: 5.15 Centenary Novices Handicap Chase Think Triolo D'Dalene has drifted to a backable price at 7/1 after being hammered all week. Wouldn't touch the other 2 marked leaders with him having so much scope for improvement. Think he deserves to be clear fav and might get backed again tomorrow. Trainer and jockey were "too bullish" about him and it resulted in a heavy antepost gamble. I really wanted him to go Plate, which for me is the easier race and he was 14/1 there with low weight. My 2nd fancy is Mic's Delight, who is rated higher over hurdles and has been kept to small fields over fences improving with every run. Ran a cracker at Sandown behind Skint and disputed the lead with Dynaste 2 out. I think he will improve a lot for handicaps. Cucumber Run was going the right way over fences, but fluffed his lines lto. Price allows us to take a chance however and I will make him a small bet. The dangers are Harpsy Cord, Going Wrong, Educated Evans, who I'll probably play with and save my stake on. Tough race.
  11. Re: Tues: 2.40 Festival Handicap Chase From the market leaders I fancy Hold On Julio to come on top. Quant has top weight and might be content with a place, which will make him eligible for the National. I think HOJ upped 9lbs for lto was very lenient. Very similar to Bensalem in a way that he's really unexposed, but it's hot race this year. I will back him thought. My other main bet is Tullamore Dew, who got outpaced in last years Centenary and ran on well for a place. His effort at Ascot was really good and he failed only by a head to what for me is the most game horse in training. Massini just never knows when he's beaten. The Ballymore win 3 or 4 years ago was immense performance. At a bigger price I like Zarrafakt and Baile Anrai. The former won easily his last race and the latter was shaping up nicely behind Invictus and Bobs Worth lto. His 2nd to Fingal Bay looks decent form too. Both have the scope to improve. Package couldn't even win the 2010 of similar mark and that was one of the worst Festival Handicap Chases I've ever seen with winner and 3rd big big disappointments and extremely flattered by that result. Potential improver could be Our Mick, but his price is short on what he has achieved and trainer talking up his chances. Fruity O'Rooney jumps to the left and will improve for Cheltenham, but I doubt he's any better than his current mark. He will run his usual race. Wouldn't be the worst saver in the world.
  12. Re: Tues: 2.05 Arkle Challenge Trophy They are doing it, because they think he can get beat just like previous favs they have taken on. It's mainly a PR thing rather than anything else. It's by far the strongest fav they have opposed so far.
