    Thistlecrack is my main bet with Elegant Escape as backup and Yala Enki for a bit of fun.

    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 everything

    …And Sorry Potato, when it’s against Native River it’ll be even more against Elegant Escape.

    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 B-)

    Wins pulling a cart. Will improve a stone today. :yes: :yes:

    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.

    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.

    THE TEAM ARE READY

    :yes: :yes: :yes:

    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 !

    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 favourite

    Anibale Fly is eye-catching at 25-1

    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.

    Percy needs a new trainer. Or perhaps an actual trainer

    Crazy early pace set by Nico. Can’t wait to see the sectionals.

    Congrats to connections of Al Boum Photo and its backers.
