    Star studded entry, but not a race I’d be rushing into, with races like The King George and John Durkan still to come……

    All the big name Gold Cup contenders in there, and if half of them go, it’ll be a cracker, which is usually the case.

    As it is, I’m hoping to see some of the less obvious ones going, the likes of….

    Burrows Saint
    Cadmium
    Darasso
    Ex Patriot
    Real Steel

    I’ll happily sit this out meantime, for all it’s a cracking entry.

    This race will be the beginning of presenting Percy’s redemption

    You heard it here first B-)

    Market up…….

    No shock to see Burrows Saint as high as 33’s after Sunday, but I think it looks big, for all I’m not diving in.

    I’d like to have seen Darasso bigger than 20’s, while Cadmium is even lower at 16’s.

    I’ll definitely hold off.

    Does darasso really stay 3 miles?

    He looked to have a very good turn of foot over 2 miles in his last run

    I didn’t think he did over hurdles tbh FF.

    A cracking field has turned up for this

    Hopefully they all run to form

    I got skybet to price up the percy savills chase/gold cup double if anyone wants to join the hype train

    Though judging by how my other fancies have run this Christmas cant say I’m overflowing with confidence :wacko:

    Road to Respect for me. Good as ever this year, has had a nice break since Down Royal. Win this then straight to the Gold Cup.

    I think the Mullins horses will need the run. Monalee may be the biggest danger, given stable form. Reappearance was nothing to write home about but neither was last year’s.

    I think Anibale Fly is worth a EW shot at 25/1.

    Road To Respect for me too, I think that he is really good value in this.

    I had a free bet so stuck it on Kemboy to win this and the Gold Cup. Nothing to lose.

    Another great race at this fantastic meeting. Thanks to the retards at Leicester, we had to share the split screen for the final two fences. Is this done on purpose, or what?

    Nevertheless another fantastic G1 race with some finish. Well done, winners!

    Super race! Delta Work has filled out and looks super. Think he would have won anyway even if Rachael Blackmore hadn’t lost her irons.

    Kemboy jumped the first couple like he hasn’t seen a fence since Punchestown. Come to think of it, he probably hasn’t.

    Loads of Mullins horses running rather flat, especially towards the end of their races. I guess their season proper starts a bit later nowadays, otherwise how could you have them in peak form from March till May?

    This seems to be the new trend at Closutton imo and it would explain why Willie has won almost every race at Punchestown for the past two years.

    Wondering about the pace, as so many were in contention at the turn for home; big difference from the KG! Delta Work back in contention for GC, P Percy + Kemboy down a notch.
