Like this race, but really struggling with all those AOB entries in there….
Impossible to call now, but there are three which interest me right now….
Main fancy would be Rock Eagle. Loved the look of him at Goodwood, and just think a step up in trip is what he needs. He’d be my #1 right now, and thought he’d be lower than 16’s, but makes sense to wait until the 5 Day Decs at the very least.
Conversely, I think Ben Vrackie could do with stepping back, but thought he looked ok last week, and appeals at the same price.
Another on 16’s is Berkshire Royal, who I couldn’t be as confident about for win purposes, but could see him making the frame.
No bet just now then, but for now
as the main early fancies, both at 16’s.October 7, 2018 at 23:15 #1376724
Rock Eagle survives the 5 Day Dec’s, and I’m happy to chance him now. Got some of the 16’s, but was only for a fraction. Main portion of Antepost will be st 8’s.
Still like the other pair, but they have other entries. Hopefully Rock Eagle won’t appear in any other races tomorrow.
Rock Eagle 8’s WinOctober 8, 2018 at 06:20 #1376736
I’ve also had a bet antepost for this and it too is Rock Eagle @ 8/1 e/w
I was on him at Goodwood when he flew home and this step up to 1m 4f will suit.
I’d be very interested in whether Astronomer runs as he has looked very talented in Ireland at a lower level.October 9, 2018 at 15:36 #1376847

Course suits one going from the front and although this will be hard to win carrying top weight, i think he’s the cliche group horse in a handicap.October 9, 2018 at 16:12 #1376852
Can’t disagree with that Kev, he’s definitely a big worry here, and he’s actually still a decent price.October 10, 2018 at 11:40 #1376892

Astronomer for me too, but he’s half of that 6-1 now Kev.
I will bet him anyway, and maybe follow up with an each way bet on Soto Sizzler.October 10, 2018 at 19:19 #1376927

I am on two in this both at 14/1.
JACK REGAN who hacked up over hurdles the other day and if able to transfer that back to the flat will go close
BERKSHIRE ROYAL who deserves a decent win on his consistency alone and is reunited with Franny Norton who was the last jockey to win on him

Lovely price on Rock Eagle for you fellas.
I can see why you’d be all over him- the form of his 4th has worked out pretty well!
9/2 now, and i’d still say he’s a decent price….would have him outright fav for this- astronomer carrying some weight!
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!October 12, 2018 at 12:04 #1377061
Fingers crossed Jack, got a few quid on, so hoping for a run for my money at least.
Couple of quid on the other shortlisted pair, Ben Vrackie 14’s, and Berkshire Royal 12’s, both to win, but only to cover Rock Eagle stakes.October 12, 2018 at 13:12 #1377072
Fingers crossed he goes well for us VTC.
Think he has an awesome chance tbh. Astronomer is the danger.October 12, 2018 at 16:31 #1377108

Well done mate! He was my only bet today, at 9-2… Wish I’d have read this thread and got some 8’s or even 16’s like you. He’s a good horse for sure.
