    The Tizzard pair didn’t do much to frank Monkfish’s form in the Mildmay just now.

    Looking through the form for Punchestown today I was struck by how consistent Fakir d’Oudaries is. Bar his 4th in the Supreme as a 4yo (likely would have run in the Triumph but for Sir Erec) and a PU in the Savills when he probably had the lurgy, he hasn’t been out of the places in 14 starts for JOB, including win or placed efforts in 8 grade 1s. Ok his win in the Melling was essentially a G2 but he finished well there and also up the hill in the Ryanair (again flattered by running past horses battered by Allaho but still). He’s only 6 so I can see why they resisted stepping him up to 3 miles before now, but his pedigree seems OK (same sire as Clan des Obeaux and same damsire as a few decent stayers). I’m backing him today and for this.

    Fakir d’Oudaries 66s ew

    I think he is the most consistent horse in training at the highest level.

    66s EW is a great bet and you can be sure Joseph won’t be afraid of running him in the GC.

    With my remark about huge mountains, I was refering to Envoi Allen when he was still 8s for next year’s Gold Cup. Sadly, we might never know how good he can be.

    It’s a shame as he looked an absolute weapon , hopefully he comes back but whether he,s the same horse ….

    Shame and with it being a tendon injury even if he does come back he may not be quite the same horse he was and was shaping up to be.

    The injury to Monkfish is probably a good reminder to be careful, but I have two early bets, Chantry House at 14-1, and Next Destination 80-1 ew

    Got to be Espoir De Romay at 40s over Chantry House at 14s, surely? :unsure:

    I haven’t heard any immediate plans as yet, but Eklat De Rire would interest me at 66s. Proper stayer and generally jumps well. Henry obviously is well stocked in the GC department, but i can’t see where else he goes, bar a National.

    Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!

    Jumping still needs some work, but happy to add Galvin at 33’s here.
