    She was very good. Cannot see anything giving her 7 lbs and a beating in March.

    Yep agree! She’d win it off level weights! Let alone 7 pounds allowance !
    And the scariest thing is we still haven’t see. The best from her yet as she’s only had 6/7 hurdle starts and keeps winning with her head in her chest. Unbelievable

    I bet Beacon Edge at 50/1 this morning, I was hoping it would be worth going for an outsider this year, but Jaysus, that was impressive today.

    What a smashing performance, and I’ll hopefully sit back and enjoy her winning in March

    V impressive, but remembering how B D’Air looked invincible after this race 2 yrs ago. Only in retrospect did we realise Samcro was over-rated.

    Sceau Royal is a more solid horse than Samcro with lots of strong form to his name. He made Altior dig deep to win the Champion Chase. And Epatante has laughed at him.

    Hadn’t buvuer dair already won a champion hurdle by that point ? And Epatante has already won one too? She’s not trying to prove she’s not overrated as she’s already been there and done it, very easily too. And if anything she’s better this season

    Sceau royal is a good yardstick but I can’t see him getting anywhere in this year’s champ hurdle , I think it’s a strong race and we,ve still to see Goshen yet , I really think Abracadbras can give her a race esp after watching shiskin this week …shiskin is a machine

    Honeysuckle wouldn’t have to give her 7lbs…

    So don't run, just like the others always do

    Maybe if Honeysuckle sets off straight after the handicap chase.

    Honeysuckle took a blow 3 out the jockey said. Will come on a fair bit for it trainer said.

    “Honeysuckle had first run and still nearly got done for a turn of foot by Ronald effing Pump yesterday!”

    We mustve been watching a different race

    She travelled all over them kicked away with her superior turn of foot then simply got tired

    Will come on massively for the run id suspect (she had a prep for the Hatton grace last season)

    Though she surely won’t be running here anyway she isn’t a quick enough jumper

    I thought De Bromhead was leaning towards the Champion in his post race interview yesterday. Or at least a bit more enthusiastic about the idea than he was last year.

    I wanted her to run in last season’s Champion. This season I think it would be a mistake. She can take on Epatante at level weights but I doubt she can beat her for speed.

    I thought it was a top class ride from Rachael Blackmore yesterday.

    Yes agree FF91 don’t think she will come here once they sit down and discuss it in Feb/March. Or at least I hope not!
