It’s a perfect day here at Cheltenham. Gone for Aspire Tower in the 1st. I’ve already bet him but had another bite here at 13/2.March 13, 2020 at 13:20 #1485954peter .hParticipant

Aspire Tower looks a good each way play. Fell last time out, but likely would have won otherwise.

2nd and 3rd at decent odds. Lucky but I’ll take it. Bad luck Goshen supporters.March 13, 2020 at 13:39 #1485958DBRDBRParticipant

Poor Jamie Moore, hope he didn’t get any hooves off the back protector, that was nasty. Hard luck anyone on Goshen.
The mare must have schooled over a few hurdles since the last time. Good cool ride by Townend to humour her round the first mile.March 13, 2020 at 13:40 #1485960Cork All StarParticipant

I was on the second and third each way as well but genuinely disappointed for Moore. Really bad luck.March 13, 2020 at 13:47 #1485962patriot1Participant

That was a mighty performance from Goshen until the last flight. I loved the way Moore served it up to Allmankind before the second last and hopefully he won’t be crucified for that same positivity at the last.
Classy comments from Mullins. However the jumps are there for a reason and Burning Victory was the best at galloping AND jumping on the day.March 13, 2020 at 13:57 #1485964moehatParticipant

Very impressed with Willie Mullins; I was in tears and he looked as upset as I was. I’ve loved Jamie ever since the Fiepes Shuffle days and I’m heartbroken for him.March 13, 2020 at 13:58 #1485965GingertipsterParticipant

Feel for anyone who backed the favourite, bad luck on the Moores. Just hope they can take some consolation with having such a great horse for the future.value is everythingMarch 13, 2020 at 14:03 #1485968

Hope not; he doesn’t deserve as if he’d slowed up to pop it, it would be hard to regain momentum and accelerate up the hill on a horse who had done a lot of work in a strong run race already. With a bit of luck the horse could just as easily have flown it and kept the upper hand to secure the win.March 13, 2020 at 14:07 #1485973patriot1Participant

Pictures on ITV show it was even more unlucky than it first looked.
What were the chances of the hooves locking like that?March 13, 2020 at 15:30 #1485990
Although really lucky he didn’t strike into himself an inch or two higher up and sever the deep digital flexor tendon or he would have broken down fatally on the run in.March 13, 2020 at 16:48 #1486022thewexfordmanParticipant

How much will the handicapper increase Solo for that performance?
It is time that there is a serious overhaul of how juvenile hurdlers are rated. The boodles needs to be scrapped as a race, and the ridiculous ratings given to juvenile hurdlers need to be reviewed.
Today’s winner is about 140, I’d have Goshen at 153, aspire tower 144, allmankind at 143 and work out the rest from thereMarch 14, 2020 at 06:21 #1486092yeatsParticipant

Thought it was awful riding from Jamie Moore and not just because he cost me money. Why the need to panic so much on the run to the last? No one could accuse him of riding with ice in his veins, jumping up and down like a dervish, no wonder the horse was confused with the messages he must have been getting down the reins.
It reminded of Jacob on Might Bite at Kempton and funnily enough I had a bit of a sense of dread on the run to the last hurdle.
