I’d love to see Native River run a big race. Even as an 11yo, I’d be happy he’s the best horse in the field, but that stable form is a concern.
I would hope that Yorkhill goes to Doncaster, but that doesn’t seem certain. If he did come here, I’d put a few quid his way.
The one I’m seriously considering though is The Conditional. Hard to see him winning against this lot, but he’d rarely runs a bad race. Scudamore booked, and he’s not been shy of a few nice winners this season, and confidence should be sky high. The Conditional has a Gold Cup entry, he likes it here, and certainly from an EW angle, he’s a decent price. Should hopefully get a run for my money.
Why didn’t cheltenham cover a specific strip of ground for santini …no wonder Nicky is undecided ….I’m praying he does run and Native River a proper bloody horse beats him , if Nicky had trained desert orchid he won’t have won a GC or Irish GN ..
