    Beat that is my pick aswell for this…. His form last season is as good as or maybe better than what anything has shown so far this season and on top of that he could potentially improve this season!

    Going in again on monksland.some encouraging runs this year, should have a lot closer to simonsig two years ago when almost brought down. Beneficials go well in good. Its wide open.

    Topped up ew on the Monk.

    I also managed to get half a point on Annie Power at 43-1.

    I have been looking at both this and the mares race, Arguably Mullins has a good chance to nick the mares with the improving Morning Run.

    He has little top notch fodder for the world hurdle. AP placed last year, If I was the owner I’d want another crack, especially as it looks just as open.

    Ive taken a gamble on the forgotten horse

    At Fishers Cross

    available at 25/1. He was a clear 3rd last year ahead of Zarkandar who is available at 10s. His jumping can sometimes leave a lot to be desired and his form hasn’t been great this season, looking at last year though prior to the WH his form was similarly poor. With Annie Power going the Mares route and doubts about More of That turning up, I can see AFC getting a place at worst. If he gets to Cheltenham and More of That doesnt, AP will be on board and he’ll be a single figure price!

    I see Sir Tom has gone for Saphir Du Rheu

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    How did you manage to get 33s? Not long ago you were waxing lyrical that this was a shoe-in for the RSA?

    At fishers cross 25/1 is way over-priced in my opinion.
    Watched his last race again and very pleased
    I will be having a fair bit each way at that price

    More Of That

    misses his intended prep run at Haydock on Saturday because he’s said to be "Not quite ready for what will likely be testing ground"

    It’s up in the air whether he will have a race before Cheltenham or not now. Hardly ideal for a horse heading the betting and I’ll be against him big time at as low as 3/1.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    I really like Saphir Du Rheu for this race. I thought its form over hurdles last year was of a very good standard. I was on Whisper at 25s for Coral Cup off the back of my opinion on this horse.

    Didn’t quite work out chasing, but it think his performance in the Cleeve Hurdle has been underrated . Yes he may have been receiving weight from Reve DE Sivola, but this is a very tough horse to pass and Twiston Davies rode Saphir very patiently to get the horse up with a bit to spare imo.

    This was clearly Plan B for this horse, I accept the horse will be fit, but it has turned up at short notice for a Grade 2 race and not had that hard a race. Nichols said he didn’t have him fully wound up on the day and I think there is a good bit more to come. It’s my best bet of the meeting.

    Seeyouatmidnight is set to re-appear in either the Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso on Thursday or the Rendlesham Hurdle at Haydock on Saturday. He’s aimed at the World Hurdle and I’ve had a few bob at 85 on Betfair this week. Sandy Thomson’s gelding has had a minor setback or two but I understand he is now in decent nick. We will know more by the end of the week.

    More of that very likely to miss the race after bursting a blood vessel this morning on the gallops.

    Wonder if team Mullins are tempted to switch Annies sights to this considering they have Glens Melody and Morning Run for the mares hurdle..

    Couteau,when the entries for the Cleeve hurdle came out it was a tip in itself he would be entered for the World hurdle.Betfair had plenty 34’s about his chances and me being the King of foresight took it.Obviously I thought this fellow would be an RSA horse at the start of the season but having witnessed his attempts at jumping fences my confidence in him diminished somewhat so it was only a natural decision to take and Betfair is brilliant for helping us to cover our Asses.
