    Henderson is the main one feeling the pinch atm and id wary of horses like top notch going forward who have on record been said to feel the effects of these jabs in the past..

    On what basis is Henderson struggling?

    He only had 3 runners today, none were favourites and all were expected on paper to get beaten.

    Before today following the shutdown he was 3 wins from 6 and that’s a 50% strike rate.

    It’s completely untrue that Henderson is struggling at present. It’s an outrageous claim to make and it has no foundation whatsoever.

    Almost all major stables will be doing the flu jabs at the same or very similar time period.

    The unusual thing today was the number of runners Nicholls had today and that was due to the shutdown, he had more that he wanted to run than normal.

    Without using a calculator that’s about a 30% strike rate. Its nothing terms of strike rate on a Saturday. He has had better than that strike rate before, much better many my times. :good:

    In actual fact going into todays racing Februaru 2019 was Nicky Hendersons 2nd best ever February strike rate. It isnt ofer yet but it is on course to potentially be his best ever February in terms of strike rate as there is still 12 racing days left. Even with an average run over next 12 days this is still likely to be his 2nd best Feb of all time.

    Never said henderson was struggling in the sens your saying, i said hes feeling the pinch with jabs, the likes of santini, angels breath amongst many others inelegible to run

    The rest of what you said is just nonsense… not worth the strain on my fingers lol

    I’ve backed evevry grade 1 now NRNB, a few antepost, but mostly NRNB. I’ve also backed the National Hunt Chase and Cross Country. Will leave the handicaps, the Foxhunters and the Mares Novice until closer the time.

    As usual I have a bias towards Mullins/Elliot and my week rests with them; hopefully they can repeat last years heights

    Supreme: Klassical Dream 7/1e/w NRNB, Tornado Flyer 25/1 e/w NRNB
    Arkle: Cilaos Emery 5/1 NRNB
    Champion Hurdle: Laurina 4/1 NRNB
    Mares Hurdle: Benie Des Dieux 7/4 Ante Post
    National Hunt Chase: Ballyward 4/1 Ante post
    Ballymore: Carefully Selected 16/1e/w NRNB
    RSA: Delta Work 7/2 NRNB
    Champion Chase w/o Altior: Min 5/2 NRNB
    Cross Country: Tiger Roll 5/2 Ante Post
    Champion Bumper: Blue Sari 4/1 NRNB
    JLT: Hardline 12/1 e/w NRNB
    RyanAir: Footpad 5/1 NRNB
    Stayers: Faugheen 9/1 e/w NRNB
    Triumph: Tiger Tap Tap 11/1 e/w NRNB
    Albert Bartlett: Dinons 16/1 e/w NRNB
    Gold Cup: Bellshill 10/1 e/w NRNB

    Mainly a Mullins bias for the graded races; will have more of an Elliot bias for the handicaps.

    Not a market id usually look at antepost, will need to keep an eye on that in the future!

    • Total Posts 596

    It wasn’t ante-post, Ham. It was NRNB. They’ve been NRNB for the Championship races for a while now, inclding the without Altior market

    yeah i just meant antepost as in a while before the race i would tend to only look at that market the day of or slightly before, with the nrnb concession its a solid price!

    Dont have too many mullins, or as many as i normally would in my antepost bets but i still likenthe look of camelia de cotte myself in the jlt, especially if the weather is similar to now at the time!

    Have a few multis about, never worth posting as there usually a mile off, wish i was sharper with a few, hovered over sir erec at 20/1 and delta work at 20/1 and sat them out, will likely back both on the day. Think thats it until i get to the track and start laying everything i initaially liked LOL

    This is the first time I’ve ever done multiple antepost Cheltenham bets. Almost always wait until the day before or morning of as it’s such a minefield leading up to it. For whatever reason however I decided to have a go this year. So far my lost bets are…

    Lil Rockefeller – Gold Cup
    Bright Forecast – Supreme (nrnb)
    Didtheyleaveyououto – Supreme
    Tiger Tap Tap – Triumph (cashed out)

    My current bets are…

    Gold Cup
    Thistlecrack 20
    Elegant Escape 25

    Paisley Park 25
    Lil Rockefeller 50

    Defi Du Seuil 5
    Lostintranslation 6

    Aso 20

    Sir Erec 6

    Bright Forecast 33

    Multiples include…

    Ew Trixie
    Paisley Park 10 (Stayers)
    Aso 20 (Ryanair)
    Thistlecrack 8 (Gold Cup)

    Ew 4 Fold
    Buveur D’Air 7/4 (Champion Hurdle)
    Paisley Park 2 (Stayers)
    Defi Du Seuil 5 (JLT)
    Sir Erec 11/4 (Triumph)

    Ew 6 Folds
    Buveur D’Air 7/4 (Champion Hurdle)
    Paisley Park 2 (Stayers)

    Thistlecrack 8 (Gold Cup)

    It isn’t the most professional approach, but it certainly filled an evening or two!

    I’ve done a treble of Benie Des Dieux, Altior, Tiger Roll. Arguably they are the 3 strongest favourites of the week and it pays 4.2 to 1 which isn’t too shabby.
