    Not the type of race i would usually be involved in but urgent de gregaine has shown me enough to follow him around

    That run in january was quite impressive, hes not much higher in the ratings, had a long layoff then runs 2nd in the worlds craziest horse race LOL to get round that track and finish 2nd in the pardubicka after the layoff was an excellent achievement, hes had 5 weeks off, hopefully enough time to recover, im hoping they send him here the 12/1 with corals when most are 9/2 was enough to tempt me, if he shows ill take some of the smaller prices as i really like this horse

    But 12/1 will do fine antepost and wont do too much damage if they swerve this

    The 12/1 is for the festival next march (CoC favourite at 7/1). The others you speak of around 9/2 are for this Friday’s race – for which UdG is a general 5/1 shot.

    I’ve backed Jodie’s orders the other day for this at 5s. He was 3/1 in most places so I grabbed the 5s with skybet knowing he was about to get thbe cut.

    Less than an hour later, he was 10/3.

    Have backed Cause of Causes for this at the festival in a Yankee.

    Thanks for pointing that out, i placed the bet through oddschecker for this and it was taken so i obviously assumed it was this fridays, coral rectified the problem pretty quickly, which was good

    So im now on at 6/1 with hills as ive just read that the french trainer has confirmed he will run

    I was considering josies it just worried me about the problems/layoffs hes had

    Definitely in with a good shout though and should be fit enough after recent comeback run :good:

    He’s arguably the best cross country horse we’ve seen since Garde Champetre and if the recent run has blown away the cobwebs, his class surely would give him a decent chance.

    Not a race I get massively involved in but Need To Know could be massively overpriced at 25/1 if he gets home!!

    Having said that I am good at backing fallers in these kind of races so don’t pay to much attention to what I say LOL

    The cynic in me thinks that Cause of Causes is going to be a no-show to try and bring his Grand National mark down with a view to prepping him for March and April. He typically doesn’t come alive until the festival, so it will be interesting to see what sort of price he will be.

    Vimconte du Seuil looks very interesting to me at a big price. He improved for stepping up to 3 miles last time out and could improve again for a further step up. French raiders tend to be over-looked in these races, despite being quite good at them.

    Winner was well backed before the off. Good to see other trainers get a look in in these races, albeit sad about NtK.

    Was he put down moe? It looked a horrible landing that could break a hock or stifle and I was really hoping that hadn’t happened.

    Broke a back leg

    Urgent gave me a good run for my money thought he was travelling well enough 3 out! Outstayed up the hill! Great race!

    Yes; sad outcome for NlB but what a superb ride by Tom S on the winner. Have to hand it to ITV racing; they are very good at keeping us up to speed about injuries etc.

    Such a shame about Need To Know. You could tell on the television it was bad!! R I P Fella!!

    It kind of put the mockers on mrsraymos celebration of backing the winner at 33/1
