    Rarely a betting race for me this, but I’m hoping to see more progression from Saint Roi. After putting him up at 20’s for The Champion Hurdle, I ended up missing it. I’m still interested at current odds though. Doubt I’d be betting him here, but 3’s seems fair with a run under his belt.

    I hope you took that 3/1, he’s as short as 11/8 now.

    I think that he’s the winner myself, but I’ve bet another two.

    They’re not the likeliest looking winners, but I thought that I’d go with up and comer Beacon Edge at 14/1, and the old stalwart Supasundae at 20/1.

    I think that Beacon Edge could improve a lot this season, and Supasundae could start a lot shorter.

    I dont get why Saint Roi is 6-4 and Abracadabras is 5-1. Happy to take the 5s ew before his run today.

    The price would suggest he is unlikely to run

    Though it looks like he’s 5/2 now

    Trainer said he would go Morgiana all being well in his stable tour.

    Cashed out after that. May have been fitness but thought he would win today.

    A canny ride from Paul Townend to hold Aba up and out off a fairly sedate pace till the bird with the flat speed had safely flown. Still don’t think Aba would have won but he would have got closer. Epatante can sleep reasonably soundly tonight.

    I know Aba needed his first run and is 2lb better off with Jason the Militant, but Jason gets his ground and has a tongue tie on. He has raced 3 times on ground with heavy in the description: 2nd to Unexcepted on their seasonal debut last year – the Mullins horse did OK FTO on heavy this year too- then a win, then a win in an interesting G2 with some subsequent winners in behind.

    Aba also has form on heavy including a G3 win but I think the price differential is a bit much and this may be one of those times when 2 places ew is a decent bet. He isn’t going to win a champion hurdle but tomorrow might be his day. Come on Jason!

    Wish i had hung on to the Abra bet. Though was expecting a deeper field.

    Mullins only running one may be a tip in itself

    Either saldier picked up a small injury or saint roi was doing much better work on the gallops

    Disappointing field to be honest. Gone for Jason the Militant at 18/1 given the conditions/

    ABA is a huge price , he,s had a run so has the fitness advantage and I reckon Saint Roi will have to have improved to beat him , fingers crossed its a great race

    Saint Roi has also had a run so no excuses for him there

    He did FF but it was a bit less competive than ABA race
