Thistlecrack is my main bet with Elegant Escape as backup and Yala Enki for a bit of fun.March 15, 2019 at 13:27 #1402260
Strong winds overnight and not much rain. Yesterday only fractionally on the soft side of good-soft, today may well be on the good side of good-soft. Haven’t given up on Native River but his chance is not what I thought it was. Although acts on good-soft, softer obviously brings his abundant stamina more in to play and more against the speed horses like Clan Des Obeaux, Kemboy and to a certain extent Presenting Persy. That said, the former and latter’s prices imo still over-estimate their chances.
I could do with the showers continuing and it’s not forcast to do so.value is everythingMarch 15, 2019 at 14:00 #1402272
…And Sorry Potato, when it’s against Native River it’ll be even more against Elegant Escape.value is everythingMarch 15, 2019 at 14:06 #1402279
It’s not against elegant escape??
Elegant Escape has won 6 races and 3 of those wins were on gd/sft.
His strongest form came last time when beaten by frodon (race run to suit frodon and against the legend) and this was on gd/sft.
This is a great horse, there is absolutely no excuse from me due to ground.
Gd/sft although it’s no problem for the legend himself it does help Clan Des Obeaux bit dont worry my boy is a boss
THE KING WILL BE CROWNED
Wins pulling a cart. Will improve a stone today.
I dont think Native River is 100% and believe he isnt the same horse he was. His job today is to set the race up for the champ.March 15, 2019 at 15:03 #1402287
I have been following racing for 26 years plus and I have NEVER seen a chaser as good as ELEGANT ESCAPE. Dont forget I have seen kauto stars and Denmans careers come and go and make.no mistake about it when it comes to 3m2 1/2 f ran at gold cup pace then the horse who can beat THE GREAT LEGEND HIMSELF has yet to be born.

Now the talking has to stop. Will potato be prize champ or chimp ? We are about to find out. A Tizzard 1,2,3 led by Native River would do nicely for me !March 15, 2019 at 15:14 #1402293
This is it; the peak of NH racing, always love that moment on the back straight 2nd time round when it becomes clearer who is travelling + who isn’t. As a C4 commentator said a few yrs ago, “Now we’re entering the torture chamber.’ Clan des Obeaux has been my nap of the week since Newbury; surprised he isn’t a strong favouriteMarch 15, 2019 at 15:15 #1402294
Now its game time
Anymore talking is done on.the racecourse.March 15, 2019 at 15:24 #1402296
Oh my goodness
Just look at the condition of the great legend absolutely phenomenalMarch 15, 2019 at 15:27 #1402298
Anibale Fly is eye-catching at 25-1March 15, 2019 at 15:28 #1402299
If you can’t work out that Elegant Escape’s best atribute is stamina, Potato… And good-soft doesn’t play to those strengths as much as soft… then you’re a novice punter no matter how many years you’ve been punting.
You’re a great read, Potato; thanks for that. But to make a profit punters need to look at a race/horse without being so blinkered.
Elegant Escape might (MIGHT) still win on good-soft, but by far his best chance would’ve been on very soft.value is everythingMarch 15, 2019 at 15:40 #1402300Mike007Participant

Percy needs a new trainer. Or perhaps an actual trainerMarch 15, 2019 at 15:42 #1402304MarkTTParticipant

Crazy early pace set by Nico. Can’t wait to see the sectionals.
Congrats to connections of Al Boum Photo and its backers.
