    Jumping was a bit scratchy at times but Robbie power gave him a peach of a ride and he hit the line hard

    Out of the 2 I’d take Mossy fen over Galvin , Galvin is race fit while Mossy will def come on for that run , he,s much the better jumper and I reckon Elliot is filling his boots with Galvin while he can , 40-1 for Mossy for Cheltenham seems a bit of value

    HDLG you got Galvin a bit wrong. He is not filling his boots he is being put away for Cheltenham Festival now. The race today was so he could qualify. Long term plan. Gordon Elliott used to doing it. Jumping no problem his 2 chases at Cheltenham reads 2,1.

    Not too despondent about Mossy Fen today- he ran with the choke out and will obviously strip a lot fitter next time. Still, it’s hard to see him reversing the form with Galvin any time soon.

    Sorry Mike I just don’t see him winning at the festival , he may well be put away but as much as a fan of Elliot I’ll not be backing him , He may play Battleoverdoyen in this and I’d much rather him , year older and a properly put together chaser , Galvin is to small for me and loses ground when jumping

    Does he travel too well to win this race?

    Weve seen two strong favourites in ok corral and carefully selected pull there chances away the last two renewals

    He doesnt strike me as a dour galloping stayer

    I’ve said previously I hope that Elliot has a look at his wind , he traveled beautifully and jumped like a stag in the RSA but found nothing , he’s a big horse so he may still be filling out , Galvin fell trying to keep up with him last year but it maybe he doesn’t like Cheltenham …. We,ll have to see

    Surely battleoverdoyen is no longer a novice HDLG

    Mossy Fen is a brute of a horse, too, so will take some getting fit and definitely needed the run.

    He stopped dead yesterday , anyone else think the Twiston Davies horses maybe aren’t as forward as most years , he,s the one I’ve taken from yesterday

    I don’t really get the crabbing of Galvins jumping, he made I thjnk 2 errors I the race and the rest were efficient and decent technique wise.

    While he can’t come here HDLG, Doyen is said to be going back to 2 miles…
