Are we all on Shishkin then..??
I’ve made him my jackpot horse and have been chipping away since after the Supreme
Henderson said he is good enough for the Champion Hurdle but he has a decent option anyways for that race
As long as Shishkin takes to jumping should be coming here
anyone have any longshots for this that I can stick into some of my weekend football bets as a bit of cover.?Member since March 2008October 21, 2020 at 10:45 #1506858

Not my favourite race Nath, and always one of the races I try to pass by, but I do like Felix Desjy this year.
He was going the right way before his setback last year, and I think his comeback runs have been encouraging enough.
I still reckon a lot of Elliot’s weren’t right at Cheltenham in 2019, finding little for pressure, and he was a good example, travelling like the winner, before folding into fifth. Next time out at Aintree though, he was more like it, and couldn’t have been more impressive, winning a bit cosier, than the margin suggested. Had some nice horses in behind him too.
I actually considered him for The Champion Hurdle, but it looks like fences all the way for him.
I hadn’t even looked at this market, considering it’s a race that doesn’t really interest me too much, but I’ve just had a look, and that 20’s looks wrong. I might be tempted soon. Probably wait and see if he gets a hurdle entry first.

Haha VTC, I was just gonna suggest to Nathan that I don’t see Shishkin beat if he jumps, but if he fancied an outsider at this stage to throw a dart at Felix Desjy 20-1 with a cash out option later if he were to flop somewhere.October 21, 2020 at 11:10 #1506861greenasgrassParticipant

Breaken, if he isn’t broken. Mad yoke. Haven’t actually backed him yet in case he gallops into a tree between now and his first start and brains himself. If there is any brain in there.October 21, 2020 at 11:56 #1506864Venture to CognacModerator

Yeah Mike, I like him, and he’s too big right now I reckon.October 21, 2020 at 20:37 #1506923YogiParticipant

100% Agree SHISHKIN at 5/1 is my banker of the meeting also…..Lovely big horse, what he done over hurdles is only a bonus to what he will do chasing, so much scope
I’m already on and looking forward to him…..October 22, 2020 at 11:30 #1506957MarkTTParticipant

I’m wary of Shishkins breeding for this test but then Altior was similar in that regard.

I was impressed with Allmankind when he made his chasing debut
at Warwick. He’s a sound quick jumper over his fences who travelled well and looks
a natural. He can only improve and he’s a hopeful early pick for the Arkle.

He should set it up nicely for ShishkinNovember 8, 2020 at 22:38 #1510147TakeYourTimeParticipant

Bit of an early shout but i’m already liking the look of Mister Coffey for the Arkle 2022. Loads of size and scope about him and i can seem him being lightly raced again this season with chasing next year in mind.November 12, 2020 at 08:59 #1510437VautourParticipant

Would Shiskin backers not be concerned about Abacadabras letting the form down? After his first run I’m happy to take 16/1 e/w on Unexcepted. Definitely an Arkle horse; likes to get on with it and jumped very well on Chase debut. Backed with Bet365 so can cash in if he disappoints between now and the ArkleNovember 12, 2020 at 11:16 #1510446
Not really Vautour. Shishkin was nearly brought down so he did well to win.
Too early to write off Abacadabras as well the jockey told Elliott he took a blow 2 out. The next run will tell us more regarding him.November 22, 2020 at 11:53 #1511701greenasgrassParticipant

Blackbow is my first bet in this. I’m a sucker for a good looking horse and he fills the eye alright. He was a terrible hurdler- just stuck his head in the air fighting to go faster and kicked the obstacles out of his way- but just looks like a chaser and there was a lovely photo of him in one of the stable tours leading the rest over a schooling fence with his head down and his feet tucked up. He must still be a bit bonkers- he was schooling in a hood- and obviously fragile but at 50s I can’t let him go unbacked.
David Mullins is on board today and I think the pair could suit each other although it might be one to watch from behind the sofa.November 22, 2020 at 21:51 #1511938jackh1092Participant

He was impressive GAG. Interested to see how your bet goes!
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!
