Not in the slightest. Epspoir Dallen is the only danger to my filly
As Triumph Hurdles go, best in years this years I think. Hendo and JP have some fantastic juveniles in their ranks.January 12, 2018 at 17:07 #1337038

triumph hurdle is generally a very open race- you’d have to say the winner has earned it’s place at cheltenham at least. Impressed with the way it picked up which bodes well for Cheltenham with the stiff finish they use for that new course.
could be a reasonable each-way bet assuming it does of course go for the race. couldn’t really have picked it out as the winner beforehand and you could argue the front two in the market cut each others throats but it’s probably more than an unexposed type improved past them. gumball should be renamed screwball or something lol.
then again as that result showed you should be careful backing favourites in four year old hurdle races and no doubt connections have a much better understanding of where they stand than the humble punterJanuary 12, 2018 at 17:48 #1337053
Id be slightly concerned the apples shakira would turn up in the mares novice now because of the other hendo horse in thisJanuary 12, 2018 at 18:01 #1337056

They would be more concerned about the Cromwell horse than any other, if they went the Mares route IMO.January 12, 2018 at 18:21 #1337058
True, another factor, apples shakira arguably at this moment is a solid fav for the mares novice and ED is a live contender in this not to mention the other hendo horse, he would rather split them up if he could youd think
IMO i just dont think she will line up here yet, i suppose NRNB is about now so no harm done and inmay have read this totally wrongJanuary 12, 2018 at 18:31 #1337059

Hendo said in his blog today that he has Countister for the Mares’ Novice race and Shakira won’t be needed for the Mares.January 12, 2018 at 19:57 #1337074
Strange eh? I mean take out AS he has the fav for the triumph, so youd think he would apply that thinking that wayJanuary 12, 2018 at 20:13 #1337078

JP calls the shots it would seem, and I’m sure he would rather let both Apples Shakira and Espoir D’allen take their chance in the Triumph, rather than guarantee the Mares Novice but only rely on Espoir.January 13, 2018 at 10:25 #1337203
Redicean is 25/1 non-runner-no-bet with William Hill.
If he wins well today those odds will tumble. I haven’t actually been enthused by any of the juveniles so far so I can’t see why King’s horse can’t make his presence felt if he wins well today. Of course he must win well today but if he doesn’t then he won’t turn up at Cheltenham.January 13, 2018 at 12:52 #1337254
Very happy with that although I’d liked to have seen slicker jumping.January 13, 2018 at 12:56 #1337258

Agree with Charles on him as well at 25/1 like to see him go left handed next i doJanuary 13, 2018 at 17:14 #1337345

Well done if you got 25/1 guys! But he will be beaten here for sure if he continues to jump like that. Class got him through todayJanuary 13, 2018 at 20:14 #1337382
Wayne Hutchinson says they didn’t go anywhere near quick enough for him. A quicker pace and he’d be slicker over his hurdles is the opinion of his rider.January 14, 2018 at 07:32 #1337413
