    Every year there is a horse of proven class that has a poor pre festival build up, goes off at a big price and duly p*sses in. The immediate feeling is ‘christ, that price was way too big and how the **** did I not stick something each way on it??’

    This thread will aim to prevent that feeling!

    Who’s your selection to be forgiven for poor mid-season form? Cue card, Bobs worth, Jezki, champagne fever?

    I’m going to flag two to watch out for:
    – Tell us more – Neptune… All the characteristics of a good Cheltenham horse, stamina, solid jumper, bred to like decent ground. Was considered the best novice in the yard at the start of the year and
    – Blaklion – Albert Bartlett… Poor performance last time out but course and conditions were not to his liking, back at cheltenham on decent ground going up the hill will bring out the best in him

    TUM not pleasing Mullins according to his interview today, won’t go unless he starts to please him in work.

    I’m hoping TUM gets it together pretty quickly as I’ve a decent chunk on him for the Neptune. Three weeks is a long time in Mullins land.

    Back on topic, I’m hoping it will be Josses Hill in the Arkle. Hopefully people will be saying "how did we let the Supreme second go off 14s in the Arkle".

    Needs to learn how to jump first, mind.

    One of the Champion Chase headline horses: Sire De Grugy or Sprinter Sacre. I can’t see both or neither underperforming.

    Sprinter Sacre….if he’s 90% he will win and everyone will be saying why did I not believe he could come back to anywhere near is best…..still 11/4 available after another upbeat bulletin from Henderson, and if he had won his last race he’d be 1/4 now….obviously still question marks, but that’s what this thread is about…..he’s the one to prove everyone wrong imo…

    I think Uxizandre might qualify for this thread.

    Or Wicklow Brave. Although the starts didn’t help on a couple of occasions. Certainly helped his handicap though.

    Not a winner, of course, but God’s Own was a crazy price at 40-1 on Tuesday morning. The Punchestown/Exeter form was easily the second strongest on offer in the race and with him getting his ground he was a knocking bet. Wish I’d had more than I did but when I went back for seconds I was greedy and went for the win!
