    5/1 is no price for Joey’s horse here

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    The best 2 mile hurdler to run this week is running in this race. Arctic fire is 11 pounds lower than his peak and maybe the 13 months off means he might have regressed but I’d be willing to have a small each way bet on him

    Class is permanent

    Class act wins the races, well done Faugheen’s old pal and his backers.

    Mine went out like a light half way round.

    Silly odds on the favourite there. Madness.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    1st Ivanovich Gorbatov
    2nd Apple’s Jade (-7lb) (1.25L). 1st Gr1 Mares’ Hurdle.
    3rd Footpad (7.25L). 4th Champion Hurdle.
    4th Let’s Dance (-7lb) (16L?). 1st Gr2 Mares’ Novice Hurdle.

    Unless something is horribly wrong, this horse is about 1 1/2 stone well-in.

    He hasn’t come close to a victory in his 7 races after the Trimuph last year. Seems to me like he didn’t make any progress.

    You are simple-minded.

    That’s going to hurt…

    Lesson for Cheltenham – it pays to be on a horse ridden by an experienced jockey.

    I don’t really fancy anything much here, and can’t see anything lurking down the weights that seem well handicapped. As such, I’m going to get on the top 4: Arctic Fire 25/1, Lami Serge 33/1, Renneti 14/1 & Ivanovich Gorbatov 11/1 to show their class.

    I don’t usually talk about my plans in advance because I usually end up with egg on my face.

    Not an egg in sight.

    Didn’t see anything wrong with what the jockey did. He is the leading claimer in Ireland this year too. Horse isn’t good enough and has shown all season that he isn’t good enough

    Well done Charles, I thought Arctic Fire had too much weight, the stats were against him on that score but good horses get weight and he was/is a good one.

    One of my favourite horses in training for a few years now. Lovely to see him win, especially after that crashing fall he had a season or so ago.

    I’ve already earmarked him for this race in two years’ time.

    You’re on fire, Charles! Well done.

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    I am going to pile into Ivanovich Gorbatov (gone from 11’s which I took into 8’s) and Arctic Fire. That Triumph form from last year is looking very strong indeed
