    Wishing And Hoping is an absolute weapon

    Took 20/1 as he jumped the last.

    Him and Hazel Hill will do me

    Glad I was on early.

    Won convincingly despite not being suited to the track.

    20s was best price before the race too. I was going to back him for this beforehand because of his 25 length point win over Ballyoker Bridge but decided to put it in the betslip and wait and see how he does.

    So I backed him jumping the last as expected. Seriously impressive.

    As you say, he jumped left but that is ok for Cheltenham. As well as that, he had decent point form (the aforementioned BB form), now has decent Hunter Chase form (some decent animals in behind today), he showed that he’s got one hell of an engine, will stay the trip, jumps superbly and will have one target.

    A nice start in this sphere for Some Man, albeit made easier by the early departure of his main rival ( hopefully not doing too much damage to Jamie Codd in the process). Only over 2.5m but his pedigree suggests he should stay and he jumped well.

    I thought so too GAG, surprised he’s not been put in the market already.

    Don Poli has qualified via points as he was ineligible for hunter chases

    Seeyoatmidnight is back on the comeback trail, with this as his target.

    Touch and go whether he gets qualified or not, but the prospect of him running here is enough for me to sit it out meantime, unless I could get NRNB on that 33’s.

    Some Man not coming here as trainer didn’t want to risk blowing his mind and he’s still a young horse. One to keep an eye on in future.

    This is the only race where I have live bets for Cheltenham. I’ve bet four other races, and I’ve got three Non Runners and a horse who’s double the price now that I took.

    This is the only race where things are going to plan.

    I’ve been lucky to get Wishing and Hoping at 20-1. He has to run a big race today though.

    I also have Minella Rocco at 8-1.

    She got some savage jumps out of that horse over the last couple. Great ride. That’s a proper Foxhunters winner :good:

    What a fantastic result to the Foxhunters for the O’Sullivans, It Came To Pass 66/1…it certainly did. :good:

    Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...
