As Mullins has given precious few clues this should give the public some idea as to Cheltenham targets. I have backed Make Your Mark for the Albert Bartlett so a staying on second might be ideal but I fear unless Russell messes up there is a pretty good chance that he will be too good for this field. Given the jockey factor not for me at 2/1 though.
Impressive performance by the winner in the conditions but a huge over-reaction by the bookmakers given that the ground will almost certainly be totally different in March. For my money Make Your Mark travelled like the best horse for most of the race and is consequently now overpriced for the Festival.
