I backed Lostintranslation earlier at 8/1. I thought that was a nice price, but there has been no love for him today and he is even bigger at the moment. He is still my main bet though. The last two years my big ante post bet for the Gold Cup won, so I’m still hoping for succes.
Also backed Monalee at 30/1, Bristol de Mai at 33/1 EW and got 5/1 for Al Boum Photo at the Unibet preview night.
I’ve joined Peter and the other Monalee backers. His jumping is good should help Rachael to get up the front, grab and hold the fresh ground and slow the pace a fraction if she likes. Trainer says he thinks he will stay and he is usually quite conservative with comments.
Lost did stay , the question is over stable form , the winner is a very good horse and it’s telling how Mullins has trained him …keeping him away from the Irish grade 1s , the pace of those races doesnt help in the GC , he could come back and win another
