Entered in the 2m 2f Pheasant Inn Novices Chase at Newbury on 16th Jan. It would be nice to see one of the festival winning novice hurdlers from the 06 season eventually jump a fence in public. Big talent if the injury hasn’t cost him.January 11, 2008 at 23:12 #134715TheOneAndOnlyTonyMcCoyMember

Yep – I’ll be interested in seeing how his chasing career goes after backing him to land the festival opener last year.

Unfortunately I reckon this meeting is odds against to take place – its already officially heavy ground and we have enough rain forecast locally tomorrow to guarantee waterlogging if the Met Office is even half right.

Have to admit I think Pedrobob looks a quite decent chaser. Will improve for better ground I think and is quite an attractive price. I also like the look of Glencove Marina, he looks a live contender for the Sun Alliance.

That was much, much more like it from Glencove Marina yesterday, wasn’t it, JohnJ! I wondered beforehand if he was still struggling to get an unhappy time of it at Auteuil last summer out of his system – it looks like he has now.

I don’t think you can just do a like for like comparison between hurdles and chase ratings, though I am sure you are aware of this. Pedrobob had plenty in hand in beating Wins Now when they met at Leopardstown over Xmas.
I do hope Glencove Marina goes for the Sun Alliance, though I think Mullins may aim him at the Arkle, he will reappear in the Dr PJ Moriarty at Leop on Hennessy day. GC, he travelled and jumped very well, looks very promising.
