A superb performance and I was impressed enough to take 3/1 for next year’s Champion Chase.
There is no point in thinking he’s going to be any bigger than that.
Tomorrow’s Champion Chase is very open and Sprinter Sacre looks uneasy in the betting at 7/2 this evening. With both him and Sire De Grugy having had injuries the division looks ripe for fresh blood and I though Un De Sceaux jumped pretty well today.
Stan James go only 6/4, which is a bit skinny but I believe 3/1 is worth an investment and a patient wait until next year, where he could line up a lot shorter than that.
I took some 3s myself. Wouldn’t normally bet that low with a year to go, but he could be odds-on and the risk is worthwhile imo. For a horse many pros thought would not jump round Cheltenham, it’s the cleverest and most mature novice I can recall seeing win at a festival. Marvellous display of leg-changes and long ones. Super horse, and a fine ride from Ruby.
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/
