    Think it says a lot about how good they think minella indo is that even at this stage they’ve committed monalee here

    Very much looking forward to the savills chase market going up

    Or they may just be splitting them up FF91 being from the same owners. Keeping Minella Indo at home makes sense, his first season out of novice company. So send Monalee to the other race.

    I think I can safely rule out Real Steel after today, so I’ve added The Storyteller at 33’s.

    Clan Des Obeaux would seem nailed on for this after today but racing is a funny old game

    Too bad Master Tommytucker isn’t entered here. So impressive in his last races.

    Tell me about it DBR, bet him in the summer, and was disappointed when he didn’t get an entry.

    Suppose they didn’t want to go back to Kempton, but worth noting Skybet have reintroduced him to the market.

    Funny how we all see things differently…thought today was an excellent showing from CDO and pushing Bristol, who is outstanding at Haydock all the way…think he’s as close to a certainty as you can get for Boxing Day.

    I honestly think he could have another two races before Boxing Day and still beat Cyrname…

    Paul Nicholls might aswell supplement TommyTucker as I can see this being a 3-4 horse race at best and a breeze for Clan with 2nd place up for grabs…

    Very disappointed with Lostintranslation too…is it the stable form? Thought there was light at the end of the tunnel with a few recent winners, though lots are still running really poor…or could he be another who just doesn’t recover from a big gold cup effort?

    It’s Tizzard, so you never know.

    Nicholls is light years ahead of some of the other trainers with horse / race management – and that includes Henderson.

    That depends MarkTT. When it comes to horse / race management with Cheltenham in mind, Henderson is better. He and Mullins tend to work backwards and the results are there for all to see at the Festival. Nicholls aims for Cheltenham sure, but is happier to run his horses more often and mop up more of the races along the way.

    Clan Des Obeaux to win this doing somersaults. Odds on on the day. Perfect prep at Haydock yesterday and can’t see anything getting close to him when Nicholls has him 100% primed and ready on the day.

    Am I completely bonkers for thinking about 1/2 pt on La Bague au Roi? Won over 3 miles at Kempton before, beating the likes of Topofthegame and Santini. Likes a tight track.

    CDO is my idea of the most likely winner but LBAR is a 66/1 poke….

    I bet her very early for the 2019 Renewal Frankie, but I think she’s a shadow of her former self, and might be completely gone.

    Good luck with her though, if you do side with her. It would be great to see her make a comeback.
