I heard very good reports about this horse last year in ireland when Trained by Willie Burke. The horse made 1 start at the Punchestown Festival and made an ejit of himself by tipping Colman Sweeny 3 times at the start and then swallowing his tongue which isnt his fault suppose. Paul Barber has moved him across to Paul Nicholls and this horse could be a serious contender in the Sun Aliiance Hurdle at cheltenham. I know its early but this is a very decent animal.September 28, 2006 at 16:26 #78164
I’ve gone for some each way thievery with Scholar King. Got it in an each way patent wth a 15/2 place and 8/1 place.
Good luck with that Irish I’m only expecting a place :biggrin:September 28, 2006 at 16:40 #78165

I wouldn’t put that do to a bad run just yet, the winner could be quite decent and My Condor will strip alot fitter for the ran as he was completely running away with Ruby 2 out but just didnt get home.September 28, 2006 at 16:50 #78167davidjohnsonMember

Still looked very green or temperamental. I’d give him the benefit of the doubt for now.September 28, 2006 at 19:27 #78168Shadow LeaderMember

I backed My Condor despite the message I received which was that it should win as it would be in a different league to the rest of the field but he is a "a headcase" so care needed.September 28, 2006 at 23:00 #78169AnonymousInactive

<br>Impossible to draw that hard and fast conclusion from one race. The favourite settled beautifully, came to challenge on the bridle and simply couldn’t get past the winner. That can be attributed to one of three things: lack of fitness; lack of application or, quite simply, that the winner is a better horse.
Only time will tell.
Edit: I forgot that another option is that My Condor may have some form of physical ailment impairing his performance. That’s what happens when you post just before going to bed!<br>

The way it was running around and the fact that the rider hit the horse around 6 times in the final furlong and a half suggests to me the horse wasn’t tired.September 29, 2006 at 08:41 #78171LUKEMember

There is always a risk backing embryo hurdler/chasers in bumpers.My Condor was the most likely winner but the price was way too short.Anyone who took the really short prices on betfair(inrunning) needs their head examined.September 29, 2006 at 08:54 #78172SeagullMember

At the recent stable open day this horse was unruly even in the parade and had 2 stable lads leading it around. <br>It was described as ‘needing to learn a great deal but could be a Royal Sun Alliance prospect’.<br>Dont think part owner ‘Harry the Dog’ would have lumped on yesterday though.<br>McCoy was bullish on atr yesterday regarding the chances of his horse winning and if it were not for the fact that it was Rubys only ride surely even money at best. I left the race alone.<br>October 26, 2006 at 13:55 #78173Grey DesireParticipant

Not a very auspicious hurdles debut today by My Condor at Taunton,strongly ridden from a long way out and finishing tailed off last.October 26, 2006 at 17:06 #78174
BBC looked on the mark when they siad this morning:
"My Condor will be a very short-priced favourite for his hurdling debut in the 1440 and should win. But beware of taking too short a price as he looked temperamental at Hereford and could turn out to be a horse to avoid."October 26, 2006 at 20:28 #78175graysonscolumnParticipant

Isn’t it obvious why he wanted to trail in last?
He’d decided from the outset that "nothing should disturb that Condor moment". :biggrin:
