    Thoughts on Bob Olinger today?

    Thought he didnt look a natural at jumping a fence, lost control of his back end a few times

    Obviously he’s very very good but will need to improve that jumping with experience

    I have him at 5-1 for this. Assuming he comes here. Happy enough. Was landing on all 4s once or twice probably coz it was a steady pace.

    I have got 5-1 as well but to be honest I was not that impressed. He is 2-1 now, which is crazy. :wacko:

    I know you have to make allowances for it being his first race over fences but he made errors at 2 of the 3 fences in the home straight.

    I would like to see him jump better next time.

    I notice Gaillard Du Mesnil has shortened up for this but i think he might be an RSA / Festival Novice type

    Reading between the stable tour lines MarkTT, I got the impression Mullins would split up GDC and GDM with GDC being the 3 miler.

    I’m not convinced of that Punchestown race for 3 mile form and GDC has proven a liking for the New Course, which is the Marsh

    Too early in his career to assess his preferences for Old Course v New Course after one run there tbf.

    I’m not stating a preference, though, Mike.

    Bob Olinger has an entry for Cheltenham on Saturday. So has My Drogo in the same race.

    If his jumping improves next time he could go off long odds on

    I’ve taken the 16/1 for Haut En Couleurs, though I do think that Bob Olinger is very hard to oppose in this.

    There,s a few shorties I can’t see being beaten but I do want to take Bob Olinger on , he doesn’t look a natural jumper at all
