Not normally my target race but a possible angle.
Why is Sceau Royal 4/1? I realise he fell last time, but that’s his first fall and worth forgiving.
He gets 3lbs off a horse considered a Gold Cup horse, not a 2mile horse. Having his first run back and a sketchy jumper.
He gets 6lbs off a horse 2lb inferior, albeit a 7yo. Fair to say a horse that’s been talked about, but not quite delivered yet?
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!February 19, 2021 at 22:39 #1523678
I fancy fanion destruval to run a big raceFebruary 20, 2021 at 12:08 #1523768
Sceau does look the value the question would be the fall last time , I can’t have champ so Greaneteen looks the value as an improving unexposed chaserFebruary 20, 2021 at 12:31 #1523770All JeffParticipant

I’m going to take that 4-1 for Champ. When he’s good, he’s very good, and I think that after the race, 4-1 will look like a big price.February 20, 2021 at 18:40 #1523878

Cant give champ away on the exchanges now
Out to 6.4
To be expected really think he has absolutely no chance whatsoever of being a fast enough jumper to be able to keep up with 2 milers
If he does keep up and jump well then he likely wins the gold cup as he definitely has the engine for it

Backed Sceau Royal at 7/2. I think he is a solid option at that price. Graenteen is a bit overrated in my opinion and Champ is liabilty over this distance. Fanion d’Estraval was interesting earlier this week, but his price is now almost the same as Sceau Royal.

Holes in every runner, I was desperate to back Greanateen but I can’t. I’m not convinced getting absolutely drilled by Politologue is particularly strong form, and I personally doubt it was 160+ form. I’ll risk Dolos at 8’s.

The way I look at tatling greanateen is the only potential improver so that’s why I’m playing him , it’s not a race to get too deep into , to be honest I’m only interested to see how champ jumps , 2 mile around here he,ll have no hiding place ….I bet Henderson has a stiff drink before the raceFebruary 21, 2021 at 10:37 #1523947
Now that he has drifted out enormously greaneteen is probably the play
Market has changed enormously
It was something like
Sceau royal 5/1
Fanion destruval 8/1
Now we have

The way Lydia Hislop, Martin Dixon and Megan Nicholls are talking on RTV, it sounds like they are completely relaxed about Champ being in effect schooled in public.February 21, 2021 at 13:07 #1523982
The teacher will look silly though if the pupil falls …February 21, 2021 at 13:16 #1523984
I don’t have a problem with Champ running. They can run wherever they like. If punters are fooled enough to think he can win over 2 miles and back him (just my opinion), then its up to them, its their money.February 21, 2021 at 15:02 #1524024Nathan HughesParticipant

Does Elliot now look silly for running Tiger Roll over the wrong trip and obstacles?
It’s all about getting a horse ready for the main target
