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.
