    I have just been looking at the ante-post betting for various races, and noticed the betfred Gold Cup (i am much more into the jumps circuit than the flat-as you probably know by my posts, anyway–)<br>I was looking at the various entrants, and saw that one of the horses i support is posted in the betting – the outlier, he ran in the grand national.. and unseated at the 22nd fence i think. he was running at the front and seemed to be going well.. i know he will be a big price, but i am wondering if he is worth a gamble.. he seems to be coming on though my doubts come when i see him try to run a trip over about 3m (as he was pulled up in the midlands national, after running well till 4 out.).. <br>I also see that exotic dancer is posted to run, being at the moment JF with reveillez and alderburn.. quite a few who are posted ran in the GN last week, do you think they will still run in this?<br>any views on this race would be appreciated. <br>thanks :o

    In a previous thread I announced that I’d found 90 on Bewley’s Berry on BF. If that comes in I’m rolling in it; so I’ll be keeping a low profile WRT the Betfred at the mo.

    For me though, you can’t discount Lacdoudal, loves the ground, won the race last year, will love running this race in general.

    I have to agree with Friggo, Lacdoudal seems to love sandown, loves fast ground, and has slipped down the weights this season back to a similar mark to which he won it last year. He also looked like he was coming back to form in his last run at aintree

    Where did you find that out Dave? The place I usually check, the RP website, doesn’t have it up yet.

    At the races web site. Not as good a site for the write up etc of a race, but is much more on the ball news wise!
