Clan Des Obeaux to pay for Christmas again…can’t see this being a big field at all and not many Irish coming over. Can see him going off around even money on the day…everyone knows it’s his gold cup, and will take something special to beat him I reckon. I normally look for a bit of value as others are at present, but simply can’t see anything good enough to beat him round Kempton at that stage of the season.October 22, 2020 at 11:22 #1506956MarkTTParticipant

Real Steel’s recorded over fences going right handed is excellent, and he’s still only 7
Champ and Santini unlikely to run, though the latter most likely of the two.
Most Irish stars will stay in Ireland.

It’s a very boring selection this, but I’m also with Clan Des Obeaux. 5-1 will hopefully be a massive looking price come Boxing DayOctober 25, 2020 at 23:54 #1507372
Not boring if it’s a winner Buckers, and although I’m going down my usual outsiders route in this, I do think that 5’s for CDO looks very fair.
As much as I like the Nicholls horse, I’m now with three of his, having added Frodon. I bet him for this last year, but 19/20 Frodon was a shadow of 18/19 Frodon. He looked back to his best yesterday though, and if he’s going Gold Cup route, then why not go here.

Would like to see mullins send allaho here
Think a speed 3 miles would suit him nicelyOctober 26, 2020 at 10:59 #1507397Mike007Participant

I would rather they go softly softly in Ireland then go for the big one in March.October 26, 2020 at 11:28 #1507401
I doubt there will be any softly softly
A comeback run then straight into grade 1s youd assume
Unlike some trainers mullins will happily run his horses against each other
Would love to see him take on Min in the john Durkan for instanceOctober 31, 2020 at 16:44 #1508076
Have to say I’m very tempted to back cyrname
He ran no race in this last year having not recovered from the altior clash
He didnt go a yard
This year he’s not had a tough race and will have longer to recover
Hes currently 4/1 and my finger is twitchingOctober 31, 2020 at 17:31 #1508090The Tatling CheekilyParticipant

Nicholas has a strong hand, but I would have Cyrname as the one to beat FF personally.October 31, 2020 at 17:37 #1508093Mike007Participant

Cyrname won a grade 2 today with a ton in hand in the ratings. Beat CDO and/or others in grade 1 company over 3 miles next? Hmm. Think what CDO and Lostintranslation to name 2 would have done to that field today at their normal best.November 4, 2020 at 14:27 #1509094November 4, 2020 at 14:30 #1509095
Two of my three make it, and immediately interested in the entry for the rejuvenated The Storyteller. I’ll almost certainly take that 33’s, regardless of the small chance of him travelling.

Nathan has put Monalee in the antepost comp and I’ve just copied him.
He’s a solid horse and was a bit unlucky not to win the Savill’s last year, for which connections have Minella Indo this year. So he stays a flat 3 and is quick enough to stay in touch. Real Steel looked good in the (slowly run) Gold Cup looking like he might even win- but he didn’t, and he finished 5.5 lengths behind Monalee.
Of course a flat right handed track might improve RS a good few pounds – and he’s younger- but with both horses at 16s, I think Monalee as more proven over the trip is the better bet.November 12, 2020 at 23:08 #1510483Nathan HughesParticipant

Monalee will need to improve again in the big races.
He was better last season than the year before and still lightly enough raced to do so the trouble is that it is a competitive division. They have targeted this race though for him and he should be shorter imoMember since March 2008November 12, 2020 at 23:58 #1510493
I’d agree Nath, looks a big price, and interesting that they’re actively targeting it.
