Incredulous to the fact Restless Harry is not favourite at the first shows for the Graduation Chase tomorrow.
Needs to go back left handed and up in trip, grade one 3 mile hurdler last year and a grade two winner at Haydock he should simply outclass the field tomorrow in receipt of 7lbs from all bar the outsider, will relish the soft ground also. Not seen the best of him over fences yet.
Not many prices through yet, Paddypower go 2/1 365 9/4

Not a great looking contest, wasn’t helped by slow pace last time out and this looks an easier contest with a likely stronger gallop.December 19, 2012 at 17:46 #423564
Well Restless Harry certainly proved my confidence well placed as he romped away winning 5/4f. I’m glad to see him back on track he is a horse I have a little soft spot for having followed him very closely as a novice hurdler backing him when a narrow 2nd in the Challow and when romping away with the a Neptune Hurdle at Cheltenham the race after his Challow effort. He was simply one of the bets of the season that day with 13/2 easily available through the morning and the 7/2 SP still too big a price, he was one of the clearest examples of a horse that should have started favourite but didn’t as you will ever see. I suggested it last night as I didn’t expect the 2/1+ to hang around and it surprisingly lasted longer than I thought up to 9.40am! These early prices that go around are little more than phantom prices trying to get some early feelers into the market and the prices are laughable half the time, I caught a little bit of Hugh Taylor mentioning the very same thing today on ATR.
Squad went close also, was the least exposed horse in the field that beat him which isn’t surprising but I was happy to be at that favourite.December 28, 2012 at 11:45 #424485
There has been quite a move for this Whispering Warrior this morning which means Derfenna Art is a juicy 9/2 now. Likely to get own way in front as last time and since the track has been relayed it is easier to last your way home up the straight from a prominent position. I was drawn to the race originally because of Whinging Willie as he was given too much to do last time out but given the likely make up of this I think he could suffer a similar fate today.

Italian Tom ran well in defeat last time out lending the suggesting he needed a step back up in trip and he has exactly that today, he is well handicapped off his best turf form in 2012 and he should go very close.

Couple I think are worth an interest in the North Yorkshire Grand National are Posh Bird and Jaunty Journey.
Posh Bird won the race last year and excels at extreme trips simply, very slow one paced old bird and after a little pipe opener last time she should be spot on for this.
Jaunty Journey has been filed in the losing accounts many times in last couple of years but I think he is still capable around his mark. Solid performance over 3 1/2 last time at Haydock and he just stays and this extra trip looks perfect for him now.

Two 1sts, close finishes but both were well under estimated in my book. Could not believe price of Trois Vallees, reasoning for runners on my blog. Could have been better was keen on Teen Ager today but felt he may fall victim to lack of pace but that didn’t come about and he scored nicely!! Did lay the favourite though for small compensation!May 8, 2013 at 08:48 #439010
