    Bummer but at least he still on the green side of the sod..I was worried when I saw your post! Back next year hopefully.

    On a prosaic note- on the strength of this news – put a pound on LiT for the triple crown at the 66s?

    66s probably doesn’t represent value overall does it? For all, he’s the one im most excited by too.

    Think that 66’s is ok Jack for a fun bet, might throw a couple of quid on that myself.

    Contradicting myself here just a bit, agree it doesn’t look value, but it also looks a bit big. FFS, losing it.

    Will Mullins keep his two Gold Cup winners apart and let one have a crack at the £1M bonus on offer?

    How long has the bonus being going for Mark?

    If he did go for it, I think that Kemboy would be the more likely, as the owners have always struck me as a very sporting lot.

    Taken 16/1 EW La Bague Au Roi

    Warren confirmed it’s Charlie Hall then this for LBAR.

    I think she is a superb EW bet at 16’s for this. Of those ahead of her in the market you have Altior at 5/2 who has to prove himself up in trip. Clan Des Obeaux is 11/2 which is laughable off the back of winning one of the weakest renewals I can remember. Cyrname is an obvious danger but he has to prove himself over 3m in proper company. I am a huge fan of Lostintranslation and think he will emerge as the main charge this side of the Irish sea, but LBAR has already accounted for him and I think Kempton suits her more than it does him. Then you have Frodon at 12/1 who I don’t think will be good enough. Min at 14/1 who IMO races far too keenly for them to consider going further than 2m/2m5f.

    Then you have LBAR at 16/1 who has solid 3m form in the book. You then have no trip concerns, no ground concerns, no course concerns, no right handed concerns, no age concerns, no target concerns and no ability concerns. This cant be said for any of the others ahead of her in the market so at this stage 16/1 EW looks the smart value play.

    Charlie, I’m happy to have laid her off meantime, but I’ll be watching her comeback closely, as I’d have no problem with diving back in.

    Seems the sensible option to me, as I share Joes concerns, and I’d like to see that she’s showing no Ill effects for her trip to Ireland.

    More big priced antepost optimism

    Vinndication 50s ew

    Looked a really great prospect in his first couple of races last year, hoping for a good run tomorrow to put him back in the grade 1 mix, at least when right handed anyway.

    Reading the paul nicholls stable tour he is bullish about clan des obeaux for this

    Expects him to come on for the run massively and straight away after down royal backed him for this at 7/1

    scary as it might be I actually think Altior will IMPROVE for step up to 3 miles,, he never travels like a 2m horse (I know stupid statement for on unbeaten in 3/4 years at the trip and won a Supreme / Arkle and 2 champion chases) but its always been end of races he has looked at his best powering up the hill

    Think he is one of best bets ive seen in a long time ill be paying the xmas expenses with him on boxing day

    :yahoo:

    Did I dream Altior has been withdrawn for this? It’s a very vague memory so hopefully I did :unsure:
