The ground at Cheltenham might not have been soft enough for Nickname. I think if it’s a bog at either Fairyhouse, Aintree or Punchestown, he might run there, although if I was the connections, I’d think about running him at Auteuil – there would be plenty of opportunuties for him there.
Good call re: Auteuil, Darren – I’m not sure there are too many races for him there over the dead 2m, but I’d not be overly worried about his prospects of staying the seemingly more common 2m1.5f trip.
The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.
