    Agreed. 20/1 Recital is tempting!

    This has to be the worst Irish Champion I can remember. So You Think should win this with ease.

    Why so few runners? Horsemans Group?

    Not at all, JJM.
    With a total prize fund of 750,000 euro’s, it remains one of the richest middle distance prizes in Europe.

    My thinking goes like this:

    Roddy O always looked like a horse who should win a race over further than a mile.

    Roddy O is bred to win a race over further than a mile.

    Roddy O still hasn’t won over further than a mile.

    Roddy O hasn’t really come close to winning over further than a mile.

    It’s about bloody time Roddy O did better over further than a mile.

    Roddy O is a three year old.

    Roddy O is trained by Aidan O’Brien.

    Three year old’s do well in this race.

    Aidan O’Brien does well in this race.

    Roddy O isn’t Recital.

    Roddy O is 16/1.

    16/1 is a good e/w price if you like e/w betting.

    Roddy O surely can’t keep being atrocious at races over further than a mile.

    16/1 is a good price about Roddy O.

    Oh, sod it, I’m on Roddy O e/w.

    The End

    NB I may be hideously wrong on this one.

    So don't run, just like the others always do

    The Irish Champion has had small fields for the last few years, but this year it probably reflects the current lack of UK and Irish G1 standard 10f horses (outside the O’Brien stable).

    As to this year’s race I think e/w value will be the horse Joseph O’Brien rides. I suspect it will be ROC but his ability to settle horses may be the key to Recital. The other if’s here are, will Recital actually run, what tactics will they use and is he in just in case the rain is forecast to arrive on Sat afternoon.

    It was on the SportingLife site on Tuesday that Seamie would ride So You Think.

    I’ve done Snow Fairy 7/1 and Famous Name 20/1 both each way.

    So we’ve almost covered the whole field between us for each way value.

    value is everything

    Had a small win bet on Recital @ 16/1.

    He’ll probably run a lovely race in 3rd and Aidan will be delighted. :mrgreen:

    SYT is a winner and oozes professionalism.

    Surely no one can now doubt he can win the Arc?
