Superb entry at this stage….
I’ve got three bet for The Stayers, and they’re all in here, namely…..
Great White Shark
Sire Du Berlais
Berlais already a short priced fav for this, but I’d give the other pair an equally good chance, and the 10’s and 20’s looks fair.
Not sure I’d want a bet in this right now, but I’m interested in Great White Shark and The Storyteller at those bigger prices.
Bachasson not be underestimated, and the chance of Fury Road looks obvious too.December 1, 2020 at 17:15 #1512742jackh1092Participant

I actually thought on her current form GWS was pretty short at 10s Bobby. She’s definitely on the upgrade though.
The one i thought was potentially interesting and hasn’t any other big entries over Xmas as yet is Bachasson. He’s clearly in good terms with himself, more recently over fences.
Last time over hurdles he ran very good race over 2m5 at the festival, when running on from the back of the field and having trouble in running. The RP state it was a modestly run affair also which wouldn’t have helped him from the back of the field. He’s 160 over fences and i don’t see much reason for him not to be able to run to a similar mark over hurdles. If that’s the case 16/1 is a fair price.
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!December 1, 2020 at 17:24 #1512744Venture to CognacModerator

Yeah, massive fan of Bachasson Jack, been following him a while now. It might make more sense for me to actually cover him, given my Stayers bets.
One to think about.December 7, 2020 at 12:31 #1513412buckersParticipant

Ronald Pump was the one I took out of The Hatton’s Grace, but I could also say the same to a lesser extent with Bacardys. I’m going to bet him 25-1 ew here with him stepping up in trip.December 13, 2020 at 17:14 #1514135AutumnalParticipant

I much prefer Ronald Pump when he’s the underdog. I’ve bet him for The Stayers, so I’ll side with Beacon Edge here at 14/1December 23, 2020 at 16:35 #1515039Silver SpoonParticipant

7-2 is too big for Fury Road here, I’d fancy him to go very close.December 27, 2020 at 21:59 #1515562DBRDBRParticipant

Ronald Pump for me at 15/4. I liked his last run again Honeysuckle. Decent form at the course and trip and I’ve some doubts with the other two favourites in the market.

Pity that 2 have dropped out leaving only 7, so 2 places. I reckon that
Bapaume might like the return to hurdles. He’s had a
race under his belt last month after the best part of a year off so he
should be fit enough for this and Willie Mullins is flying at the moment
with 11 winners in the past fortnight.

I have backed Bapaume too bigG- plenty of back class including 4th in a Stayers and the French Champion hurdleDecember 28, 2020 at 13:04 #1515614thewexfordmanParticipant

All of the horses in this race have big doubts.
the form that mullins is in means the Bacardys is a bet for me. He ran admirably in fairyhouse on his seasonal reappearance on 3 lengths behind honeysuckle. And came third in the stayers hurdle at cheltenham. There is no better form in this raceDecember 28, 2020 at 13:32 #1515620DBRDBRParticipant
