    ABP will still only be 9 next year. If they get softer ground and a quicker pace that will bring Santini into it. Delta Work will still be young and with better luck will be in there pitching. Minella Indo will get a better pace and more cover from good horses and hopefully a year wiser to settle. Samcro might stay…Henrietta can brush up Champ’s jumping and he will come powering up the hill…
    I think I need a lie down.

    Yet again Al Boum does the business, and yet again people underestimated the form of the race in Tramore

    Santini was in top gear the first circuit , for me he,s too slow , that’s 2 years he,s been outstayed up the hill while lostintranslation was switched off beautifully , watching again I’m sure Robbie wished he asked sooner ….I’m sure they,ll be confident now he stays

    Santini “outstayed up the hill”. Were there two Santinis in the field? :unsure:

    Santini lost because it took him ages to get going after the last

    He was staying on much stronger than anything else

    ” took him ages to get going ” as I stated he,s too slow , everyone to there own opinion but I see no reason why he,ll reverse the form with the winner , to me he,s more likely to win a National

    I know it’s petty of me but I like good horses to have good names. ABP is a beautiful, talented creature and I know his name comes from his sire but it’s such an ugly name [had to get that off me chest….].

    Do not really care about his name – all that matters is he is a fine chaser.

    Cannot have Santini to reverse the form. He just does not convince.

    Lostintranslation stayed and I would see him as a bigger challenger next year.

    And really great for Tramore to have had the Gold Cup winner two years running. It is a lovely track.

    Yeah, this was a terrific race, but so should next year be. Hopefully Topofthegame will be back in business too.
