    I understand the excitement though, Just his size let alone his win at a canter suggests a very possible RSA winner. Im getting involved as i missed the 33s, Best im seeing is 20/1 at bet 365. He will only go shorter.

    I reckon Battleoverdoyen should be JLT and not here.

    Listening to the team behind him I’d be very surprised if he,s not in the RSA , racing post interview said he was one of the last horses brought in and he,ll come on a lot for the run !!

    I like the horse and agree he should be aimed at this. He looks a proper chaser but I think the one for this is Champ.

    Obviously CHAMP is favourite based on his hurdling form, But I would say BEAKSTOWN will be right with him tomorrow

    Beakstown jumped pretty terribly on chase debut and really should’ve beaten sam spinner who also jumped appallingly

    If champ is to be a contender for this youd like to think hed win this comfortably

    Really looking forwards to seeing champ today. For me he was last seasons best novice hurdler along with klassical dream. I know he got beat at Cheltenham but clearly wanted 3 miles. Was a machine at Aintree.
    I think he’s pretty ready for this today having already had a schooling session at Chepstow over the fences.
    He’s the most likely winner for this at this stage in my opinion and with a good run today I expect him to be a very strong fav for this. Have had a bit on him for this at 10/1

    I’d give champ a 7/10 for that performance. Gave Dashel Drasher an easy head start at the start of the race too.
    I didn’t like Barry’s ride but you could tell he wanted to nurse him round and almost school
    Him today as the first half of the race Barry kept pulling him back to be smart over his fences and put a few slow ones in. When Barry started to ask him for big ones he came up with it which was impressive. Got a little outpaced at one point but class. And through and 2 out he was cruising again. Won convincingly and I think a step up in trip will suit and a more positive ride will help too and will
    obviously come on for the run. Not a bad start to his chase career

    Thought his jumping was pretty average

    Quite slow at a few of them

    Will need to be much better against good horses

    But with geraghty on you dont know if that’s the horse or he was just giving him an educational ride

    Backed him at 8s before today’s race. Glad he won.

    I thought Champ won well. He was not absolutely foot perfect but his jumping was perfectly safe. Henderson mentioned the Kauto Star. Will be interesting to see how he goes stepped up in distance but going right handed on a sharper track.

    I have a bit on Walk Away at 66-1. Chase debut now, think he could be good.

    Interesting run from faugheen

    I thought he was jumping really well until that one terrible mistake and his fluency/confidence went after that

    Wasnt brilliant but not without promise going forward
