    With you Dazzler, had a dreadful punting week so far so praying he can save the week.

    United Front wouldn’t qualify for the Chesham Botchy.

    Igor Biscan, phenomenal username. Thanks for the memories :heart:

    It’s the Derrinstown on Sunday big Igor, he could end up there.

    Sands Of Mali 14/1

    Saves his best for Ascot in my opinion. Looked the moral victor in the Commonwealth Cup coming from a poor draw before smashing up on Champions Day. That was on deep ground but I don’t have him down as being particularly ground dependant. Think he’s much better than he showed for most of last season and is very highly rated at home. We’ll see what comes from overseas but the race looks to lack a superstar. I think he’s a belting price.

    Not normally one for going in on this so early but Cloth Cap is my play at this stage. Only his fourth run over fences today and he looked a horse of real potential. Saw out the four miles and then some, coming again at the end. Jumping needs brushing up on but with another season under his belt I’d be happy to take the chance at 50s. At least we know with his connections he’ll almost certainly be aimed at this. Real nice type, I like him.

    Just when I though I was settling with four (Up For Review, Vintage Clouds, Noble Endeavor and Monbeg Notorious for anyone keeping count) I spot that Blow By Blow’s had a wind op. Can’t let him go unbacked at 100/1 :wacko:

    Quote from March 23rd…

    “We’ll discuss it further and I want Nico [de Boinville] to have a sit on him next week to see if he’s happy and take it from there.”

    Can’t really knock him for that.

    Not how I ever read it, Ham. I think we should cool the whole Potato argument unless he were to speak out of line on the matter. That’s my last word on it.

    I must admit, I don’t agree with Potato but I do admire him and his thick skin. Why does he need ‘proof’ that Elegant Escape wins the Gold Cup? Like I say, I don’t think he will, but I’m happy for him to voice his opinion that he thinks he will. Why do we need proof? Why is it a problem that Potato is going to be championing Elegant Escape again this year. The topic took over last year because everyone (for whatever reason) got riled by the fact Potato had an opinion and decided to voice it. A lesser character would have long since quit the forum, more to the shame of anyone who gets on his back. Good for you Potato :good:

    I couldn’t have him for a Gold Cup either. I reckon he’ll be stuck between a rock and a hard place next March. A year’s a long time but I can’t imagine any scenario where he’d end up in the Ryanair, although that may eventually be his best trip.

    I already regret posting this as I don’t have the energy for the potential wrath I’ll likely incur but here goes.

    As time’s gone by it’s looked increasingly likely that Altior needs at least the intermediate trip to be seen to full effect. I think, barring his Supreme winning year, he’s never looked a two miler to me. Now when I say this next bit I mean it simply in relation to his all round ability – at two miles, he’s nothing more than an average Champion Chase winner nowadays.

    This is me basing it on the figures, the fact that he’s the best horse in training and he’s still winning a Champion Chase over an inadequate trip. So before I get jumped on for calling Altior ‘average’, I’m not. He is (unofficially) the best horse in training, but I’d fear for the unbeaten run if he stayed at the minimum trip another season. He won’t win another QMCC :negative:

    If he wins stylishly at Aintree you’d see his price collapse. He’d certainlt be a lot more highly touted you’d imagine. I am worried by his sire, Saint Des Saints, and the fact that his offspring don’t seem to achieve much until presented with a fence but, at 50/1, it’s got to be a chance worth taking :good:
