Thought with so many good races over the 3 days it would be a good idea to have a thread for the meeting like with the breeders cup
The schloer chase in particular and arkle trial look like cracking races if all the entrants turn up
Mainly looking forward to defi du seuil in open company and getaway trumps second go over fences, though disappointed to see getaway trump 13/8 fav
Was hoping since al dancer won convincingly getaway trump would be 5/2-3/1 when first priced up.
Also like the look of brewinupastorm if he runs on friday, though hes entered on Saturday at wetherby and Cheltenham on sunday so no play at this stage
Any fancies/bets?November 11, 2019 at 17:15 #1474614
Tobefair at 8’s in The Big Bucks Hurdle for me, think he’s got another one in him, and I think he’ll run in Graded Company soon.
I fear plenty in it though, the likes of As De Mee, Lil Rockerfeller, Anteros, and Vieux Lion Rouge, but unless he doesn’t get declared, it’ll be Tobefair for me.November 15, 2019 at 16:48 #1475002
My bets for tomorrow
1:15 minella warrior 5/1
3:00 the butcher said 13/2
3:30 remastered 5/1
Plus a couple in the betvictor gold cup
Count meribel 10/1 £2.75
Happy diva 14/1 £2.25
Plus ramses de teille in the 1:50
£10 win 100/30
No big bets but lots to be interested in
Good luck anyone who has a goNovember 15, 2019 at 17:35 #1475008All JeffParticipant

Final Furlong, I like The Butcher Said as well.
My selections for Saturday
Ramses De Teille
The Butcher Said
Le MilosNovember 15, 2019 at 18:27 #1475013
He ran a cracker to only get beat 4 lengths by ramses de teille trying to give him 8lbs on reappearanceNovember 15, 2019 at 20:04 #1475017
I think that Some Day Soon in the opener, will be my only other bet on the card, outside of the big one.
Currently 18’s, he’s a decent each way, but I’ll hopefully get 20’s+November 16, 2019 at 00:36 #1475051BigGParticipant

1.50 Cheltenham – West Approach 9/2. Ran very well here over c/d after a 6 month
lay-off 3 weeks ago. If he doesn’t bounce after that he could go one better here.
2.25 Cheltenham – Slate House 10/1 (trading at 11/2). Backed him 2 weeks back
(in Betvictor GC thread) after his return at Cheltenham. I was looking for a big
year from him last year and it just didn’t happen. It seems 2 wind ops have done
the trick and I think he could have a big season. I nearly stuck him in as my star
horse in VTC’s Ten To Follow, I really rate him.
3.00 Cheltenham – The Butcher Said 6/1. He won 3 on the bounce, and was
hiked up 21lbs from May to october by the handicapper. I think that’s fair enough and he
did well running off the mark last time when runner up to a very well fancied odds on Ranses
De Teillee over c/d on heavy. Everything should be to his liking today.November 16, 2019 at 12:28 #1475095peter .hParticipant

Big River should relish the conditions with stamina at a premium and will need to pick up a prize like this if connections are eyeing up a tilt at Aintree. Achille is my backup. I’m just not convinced West Approach is all that genuine.
Vieux Lion Rouge is likely going to be put spot on for his Becher bid with this run, so he’s not a betting proposition for me which is rare as I’ve backed him in far less realistic contests than this. I’ve instead opted for Anteros who has done little wrong as of late. He’s out of the handicap which isn’t ideal obviously, but he appeals as ew value.November 16, 2019 at 12:41 #1475097
No joy for me in the first.
Pretty decent horse that Thyme Hill.November 16, 2019 at 12:50 #1475102
Really impressive there from Allmankind as well.
Tried to nab some 40’s for Triumph Hurdle, but it disappeared very quickly.November 16, 2019 at 13:17 #1475115greenasgrassParticipant

Relentless Dreamer ew 3places with Paddys for me in the 1.50. I think he was unsighted when he made the mistake at Ascot – he normally jumps OK and I think will get the trip. Course winner over 3m1f and went OK on soft on seasonal reappearance at Chepstow.November 16, 2019 at 13:21 #1475116
Bad start for me, minella warrior pulled up
Must’ve injured itself as it started jumping ok then suddenly started making a funny shape over his fencesNovember 16, 2019 at 16:31 #1475157Ray1891Participant

Couldnt pick my nose today, Had a mare! I had a little on Jataluwih but it wasnt enough to save my dayNovember 16, 2019 at 17:40 #1475169
Happy diva saved the day for me, my other bets all ran well below form
Though have a silly treble rolling onto tomorrow
Saldier w/o klassical dream 5/4
Getaway trump 6/4
I felt like crying when saldier won especially after drifting to 7s as I couldve got a better w/o price
Fingers crossed getaway trump can reverse the form with al dancer tomorrowNovember 16, 2019 at 19:25 #1475173Cork All StarParticipant

I had the first two winners for small money but stupidly did not double them. Magic Saint scraping into a place dragged me into profit but it might have been so much better if Slate House had stayed on his feet.
It was still an enjoyable day of racing. It is one of my favourite meetings of the year.
