    Agreed think he looked a serious prospect going forward

    I think ferny hollow may be a bit of a handful over obstacles, seemed a bit of a nutter

    I believe Jamie codd said Ballyadam is the best horse hes ever ridden

    And hes ridden envoi allen so he could be something special

    I’d say elliot won’t be pleased Codds spouted something like that after winning a Downpatrick bumper lol

    Any thoughts on Bear Ghylls? Won a Warwick bumper by 19 lengths (Chantry House won it last year). The second has come out and won and the 10th(beaten a distance)was beaten a short head. Your Darling was pulled up and had excuses, but even so he won it in a good time and ran very green up the home straight. Backed it at 66s for this and the Supreme.

    More than happy with Bear Ghylls’ reappearance; pulled a bit, a couple of novicey errors and still won hard held in what may turn out to be a fairly decent maiden. A stronger pace should see him to even better effect. Bet365 are 40s which is more than fair. I think he’s underrated because of the trainer not being high profile but she does very well with the ammo she’s got.

    I added a couple more. Ballyadam 16s, and Farouk D’alene 25s for this and the Albert Bartlett. Will keep an eye on how things progress.

    Bear Ghyll’s form continues to be franked. Bobhopeornohope won the first at Exeter today – beat a useful sort who ran in last season’s champion bumper and that was beaten nearly 50 lengths by the Bear in a Warwick bumper. Runswick Bay, 2nd to Bravemansgame today, was beaten over 80 lengths in the same bumper. Still can get 40s for this and would be a few points shorter if trained by a high profile trainer.

    Not very original, but I was hugely impressed with Appreciate It at
    Cork on Sunday. He only won by 2 1/2L, but it could have been whatever
    Paul Townsend wanted it to be. That was over 2m and he’s 16/1 for the
    Supreme Hurdle, but the way he finished I think he’s crying out for 2 1/2m
    and the Ballymore hopefully should be the way he goes.

    Appreciate It 12/1 various

    Was taken by the hurdling debut of Jessie Harrington’s Crosshill. He’s entered tomorrow at Punchestown and interesting to see him down in trip. Think there might be a fair bit under the bonnet there although see this as his long term target.

    Interesting to see if he’s up to it.

    Crosshill looked run slightly off his feet there and probably wants to go back up in trip. Having said that the winner probably isn’t one of Willie’s best so it might just be a watching brief next time out.
