    Yes, I am still a bit haunted by the sight of poor exhausted Blaklion. Antepost favourite for the National and NTD decides to run him under top weight in a mud bath at Haydock. Pure genius.

    I watched that race …turned to my dad and said they’ve just destroyed the Nat fav …he was never the same again , I’m amazed that Williams hasn’t pulled her horse , she wants more horses from the owner surely …if she calls this wrong

    It is quite sad to see how much this race has declined. I suppose it reflects the shift in power in the NH game away from the north and to the south. Four Gold Cup winners (all northern trained) have won the race.

    I used to go to Haydock a lot in the early 90s and fondly remember Twin Oaks lugging top weight to victory – and over the big old Haydock drop fences.

    My all time favourite Jodami won it twice. I think his second win was his last victory.

    There’s nothing GC class in this , it’s more a national trial than a GC one now sadly

    Yes, great SP. I suppose it would have been better for the form if Sam’s Adventure had stood up but I doubt he would have got too near to this lad. That Gold Cup entry does not look silly.

    Reading between the lines from Venetia’s interview i wouldnt be surprised if the Gold Cup was next.

    The bookies were clearly impressed. Best price 12/1. Only slighter bigger than the likes of A Plus Tard.

    Very impressive. I thought a 16 pounds rise would give him a clallenge, but he won easier then in his previsous runs. I suppose the Gold Cup will be next. I can only see him running in the National Hunt Chase if the ground will come up good.

    And surely we must have seen the winner of the Betfair Chase 2021.

    I’d rather have Bristol de Mai ew at 40s than RP at 12s. Or even 66s.

    Yes; Silver Hallmark ;-)

    One of the worst prices iv ever seen

    He won a weak handicap in which his main rival didnt run and the other one fell

    Sams Adventure wouldnt have beaten him anyway imo. Without Sam Brown he had a class edge as i said in my preview. Hes not my pick for the Gold Cup but with a likely hike into the 160s Cheltenham handicaps are out of the equation.
    Needs juice though by the look of it so a dry week wont help him.

    Allowing for the weak opposition, that was seriously impressive
