    Plenty of prices up, and some proper big guns in there…..

    It’s a slight concern, amongst the more obvious concerns, that they favoured the flat track of Uttoxeter, to a tilt at The Kim Muir, but I have to have an early punt on Time To Get Up. I love him, my type of horse, and can only see him improving.

    I’ll be interested to see what price Escaria Ten gets introduced at. Added then cashed out

    Next on the list, Galvin and Remastered

    Time To Get Up 100’s

    Was hoping that Fiddlerontheroof would be double the 50s, he was shorter than that in a one horse race.

    The new reigning champ is 8/1 the same price Envoi Allen is. Not saying that either one of them is value, but Envoi Allen has quite a few mountains to climb to get even into single digits.

    Can’t believe Monkfish is favourite for the gold cup following his lacklustre performance at the festival this year.

    He didn’t jump well but got the job done , that last run in Ireland is prob the main reason for his price , plus we def know he,ll stay the GC trip while Envoi still has that to prove

    He got the job done but there wasn’t exactly strong opposition. I was completely unimpressed by him and don’t see him as being a serious gold cup contender next year.

    Minella Indo will hopefully drift to a more attractive price before next year’s festival. He’s a spring/Cheltenham horse so i can see him being beaten over in Ireland in the same races that he was beaten in this year.

    Monkfish blatantly has class but i was unimpressed with his jumping, albeit i don’t think the loose horse helped him. Envoi Allen has yet to run over 3 miles never mind 3 and a quarter. Even his P2P was just 2 and a half miles.

    I got 11-1 Monkfish and 14-1 Envoi Allen to win this.

    If he doesn’t then potential for a shiskin/Envoi head to head (unlikely) or Allaho/envoi head to head (much more likely) , it’ll be interesting to see where envoi goes first next season , do you think he,ll go punchestown this season ?

    Then go to punchestown as well

    “Can’t believe Monkfish is favourite for the gold cup following his lacklustre performance at the festival this year.”

    I was not that impressed visually but the clock says he ran the last 4 furlongs quicker than Put The Kettle On in the Champion Chase. If he stays fit and sound he is a big player next year.

    Monkfish is a monster and will take all the beating

    Was below his best like a few of Willie’s were at Cheltenham

    Very possible he was over the top after Christmas and the DRF

    I took 12-1 Monkfish and also too 16-1 Envoi Allen to win this :good:

    Both free bets
