    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.

    Heard it here first chaps.

    According to the Racing Post today it looks like Ruby’s decided Annie will go Mares Hurdle instead of another crack at this..

    Stating lack of match fitness may be tough to overcome in such a testing race like world hurdle….turn up in the Mares instead and stroll round for victory!

    Not for the first time At Fisher’s Cross was bitterly disappointing today. He seems a shadow of the horse who beat The New One and then won at Cheltenham. It doesn’t seem to stop him going off hot favourite though.

    He won’t be hot favourite next time though, as he’s 50/1 for the World Hurdle. That’s the price my cuddy Tea For Two should be for the Albert Bartlett but is only 25/1.

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

    I’m surprised they continue to allow AFC to run at all. For the past two seasons I rarely see him not obviously hurting, trying to change legs galloping, or land in some sort of way that isn’t painful.

    His arthritis problems are well documented.

    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/

    And, BTW, as the skittles tumble, Rock on Ruby looks well worth the gamble that he’ll get the trip.

    Was thinking the same about AFC. There’s no pleasure in watching him race these days.

    Makes for interesting reading if you’re in the Rock On Ruby camp Joe.

    I would advise against beat that lads, not publishing my reasons but will advise over PM why(if anyone was considering getting into him)

    Confirmed today that he wont go to Cheltenham.

    https://www.theracingforum.co.uk/horse-r … &start=585

    GRADE 1-winning novice hurdler Beat That will miss next month’s Ladbrokes World Hurdle, which he was as short as 10-1 for.

    World Hurdle card
    Trained by Nicky Henderson for Michael Buckley, Beat That scored at the top level at Aintree and Punchestown’s spring meetings last year, but will miss the Cheltenham Festival, it was revealed on Monday.

    He has had only one start this season when well beaten behind Rock On Ruby at Cheltenham last month and will be kept for a novice chase campaign next term.

    "We’ve been trying to get Beat That there but we have to say enough’s enough," said Henderson. "We are just going to put him away and wait for novice chasing next season.

    "I don’t know why, but it just hasn’t happened for him for some reason this season. He ran a nice race up to a point at Cheltenham, but it’s not fair to throw him into a race like that on such a preparation.

    "He’ll have a Sprinter Sacre sort of sabbatical – a good summer off – and then come back over fences next season."

    Henderson could still be represented in the World Hurdle by 16-1 chance Blue Fashion and 14-1 shot Whisper, who will be among a team of 12 the former champion trainer will send to exercise at Kempton on Tuesday.
