    I wouldn’t rule out CPS just yet. Elimay got turned over at odds on as well today so they may have had fitness issues. CPS also got beat 1st time last year. Would like to see what both do next time. Not a good couple of races for the Skelton chasers who were fit.

    I wouldnt have minded chacun losing and possibly needing the run but he did look lost coming up the straight there, doubt the poor jumps where the issue, it has to be a negative hes ran twice like that in the uk now though and to 170+ in ire, still though, i can have my price for cheltenham now on him which suits me!

    Nube negra was to be expected

    Hitman could be one to keep onside in a few seasons given his age, will make into a GC type horse at somepoint i think

    Winner is a really nice type, great attitude

    And nath, im sure he wont be on that run, but like ive said 6/4 this far out? Hes 6/4 to have a run before chelt

    So good to see Bryony win after what she is enduring at the moment. Couldn’t be more pleased for her ❤️

    Chacun is consistent when racing in Ireland and connections seemed very confident coming in to this. So -along with a poor effort in last year’s Champion Chase – got to think the probability now is he just doesn’t travel.

    Bit harsh to say his Champion Chase run was poor he wasn’t beaten far. Today wasn’t like him at all and I’d like to reserve judgement until next time.

    Maybe Mullins got it the wrong way round and should have run CPS in the Hilly Way and Energumene here.

    True, Chacun wasn’t beaten far at Cheltenham Mike. But the performance was “poor” because it was a long way below his best. ie At Chacun’s best he would’ve won the Champion Chase with quite a bit in hand.

    Yes, there are only two runs in Britain to judge him on and normally I might’ve given him the benefit of the doubt. However, with Chacun the important point is he’s pretty much as consistent as they come when racing in his “native” Ireland. So the fact he’s been so far below best in both British performances seems (at this point) to tell its own story.

    He is very consistent ginger

    After his first run

    Which he’s improved from enormously both years (yes he won the hilly way but he wasn’t impressive at all)

    It just looks worse this year for 2 reasons

    1) his debut was in the tingle creek
    2) willies are a couple of weeks behind due to the lack of rain

    Nube negra clearly needs to be kept fresh, cant see the winner winning the champion chase

    Nicholls is as good a target trainer as there has been and today was greaneteens gold cup
