    Wholestone drifting possibly due to the woeful form of the yard.

    I like Wholestone but his trainer’s handling of The New One (and, yes, I know how much he’s won but he’d have won an awful lot more campaigned as the natural stayer that he is) puts me off backing anything from the yard.

    Ami Desbois seems excellent value for a tough and consistent front-runner who seems to be peaking at just the right time. Softer ground would have helped, but he’s won on good and if his jock gets the fractions right he could take some passing. His only outing here was at this trip when he ran Wholestone to a length at levels. At four times Wholestone’s price he makes much more appeal.

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    I’m happy to oppose Death here with Augusta Kate 7/1 (could of won last time), Wholestone 15/2 (course form) & Penhill 16/1 (form looks solid).

    I went for The Worlds End at 14’s Ante-Post, and although happy with what I’ve seen of him, I’ll have a small top up on Monalee at around 7’s, as he’s always impressed me, and despite trainer saying he wouldbe trying to avoid Death Duty, he’s still up against him. I’ve taken both of these win only.

    To paraphrase the famous/imfamous Frankie Miller T-shirt from the 1970’s

    Willie Who? Willie Fxxxing Mullins That’s Who

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    When I saw this horse win a race at Ascot on Victoria Cup day 2 years ago, I remember thinking he could run well at a festival – but I was thinking Glorious Goodwood! Still like I said he brought solid form into this and was overpriced.

    Well done, Charles and any other Penhill supporters.

    I can’t recall seeing a hurdler carrying his head as low as Death Duty.

    Unlucky Raymo…and ironic. Being hampered by TWE cost CB at least 5 lengths and TWE would have gone very close as was travelling well when falling and had about 10 in hand of CB through a line with No Hassle Hoff. Yet again Heskin made up ground quicker than necessary which may have contributed to horse and jockey not being in harmony re take off stride. Tom George is doing so well that he may need a better experienced jockey going forward and I believe the arrangement with Heskin was just for this season.

    I couldn’t believe how quick TWE made ground GM. I actually commented on it before he fell!!

    He was going well though! Unlucky.
