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.October 30, 2020 at 09:03 #1507741AutumnalParticipant

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.October 30, 2020 at 09:41 #1507746
I dont get why Saint Roi is 6-4 and Abracadabras is 5-1. Happy to take the 5s ew before his run today.October 30, 2020 at 11:14 #1507751
The price would suggest he is unlikely to run
Though it looks like he’s 5/2 nowOctober 30, 2020 at 11:29 #1507752
Trainer said he would go Morgiana all being well in his stable tour.October 30, 2020 at 13:57 #1507777
Cashed out after that. May have been fitness but thought he would win today.October 30, 2020 at 14:09 #1507782greenasgrassParticipant

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.November 14, 2020 at 23:29 #1510730greenasgrassParticipant

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!November 15, 2020 at 07:38 #1510739
Wish i had hung on to the Abra bet. Though was expecting a deeper field.November 15, 2020 at 11:21 #1510765
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 gallopsNovember 15, 2020 at 11:31 #1510768DBRDBRParticipant

Disappointing field to be honest. Gone for Jason the Militant at 18/1 given the conditions/November 15, 2020 at 13:41 #1510791
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 raceNovember 15, 2020 at 14:06 #1510796
Saint Roi has also had a run so no excuses for him thereNovember 15, 2020 at 14:11 #1510797
He did FF but it was a bit less competive than ABA raceNovember 15, 2020 at 14:17 #1510798
Get in , dug it out like a good horse does
