    Good race, no idea who’ll win and no idea how to price it up. Best left to the paddock watchers on course to part with money.

    The new season’s betting boots have been polished and gently broken in during October ready for the long march starting in November and finishing in May.

    Ah – the beloved Associates! I might dig out my old 12 inch later (sounds like you dug yours out a few years ago GH!).

    Impek is not a bad price at current 8.6 given that he is a Gr1 horse (I know he hasn’t actually won a Gr1 but he is competitive at that level) and it will be an emotional day for connections. The trip is a worry though.

    It’s difficult enough knowing how the race is going to be run, never mind worling out what will be fit enough on the day. Plenty of the field have a history of going from the front whilst they also have form being held up. Impek and Hoo La Baloo in particular fall into this category. I have a feeling this might be a shade too far for Dempsey who is likely to prove best with an emphasis on speed ay 2m.

    For what it’s worth I’ve had a speculative interest on Chilling Place. He goes well here fresh and as very well handicapped on his form with Racing Demon from this meeting last year.

    I will be throwing a few quid at Charlies Future in the 3.40. He’s the sort of horse I expect to improve this year, joing Robert Alner from from the S. C (Simon?) Burrough yard. Alner is in good nick whilst Burrough hasn’t had a winner since Charlies Future won in March 2005 and a losing run of 130+.

    Agree it’s very hard to know who’ll be fit, etc and of course Chilling Plac is very well handicapped based on that race from last year.

    However, taking potential improvement into consideration, I think Racing Demon is a cracking each way bet at 4.9 win/2.05 pl or so on BF. Would be surprised if he finished out of first 3.

    Impek has been fit enough to win fto on a few occasions, his owner has won this race 3 times in the past, distance shouldn’t be too much of a problem, given his Huntingdon romp over not much further, and has the Champ on board to ensure no hanging about. Looks the likely winner to me.<br>I can’t see that Racing Demon will be at his best for this, given that he was pencilled in for a trot around Carlisle until the going went against him.

    I would go for a modest each way on Green Tango

    A very tricky race.I cant see any horse that I would want to lay at current odds.

    Henrieta has farmed this race in the past and as such i just can’t see past Racing demon, who i hope will improve into a top performer this year. Dempsey may be a little too keen on this first run who i see coming 2nd after running out of petrol or maybe just getting collared by a staying on Impek.

    The rest i don’t think are good enough.

    Once again, Racing Demon’s tendency to jump right leaves me out of pocket :angry:

    <br>Simon Burrough it is, DJ, he of Just So riding fame. In addition to his losing streak (or maybe because of it), he was removed from his West Buckland base in August and the last I read – in the Sportsman shortly after – was still a trainer possessing neither a yard nor horses.

    It’s amazing how, even after a 7.22/1 winner, you can get frustrated cos the SP was bigger!

    Where else but on TRF would you get classic 80s pop lyrics on a thread about a Graded steeplechase? Quality stuff.
