    Lots of quantity but, Cyrname aside, not much quality; I can certainly remember far stronger renewals.

    Still, Vinndication looks a player to me at 6s. Good record fresh and always highly rated by connections. Looks an e/w bet to nothing at those odds.

    I believe they had Mark Johnson commentating from Cheltenham yesterday; why is it that, even after all these years of French-breds running in this country and the recent success of Bristol De Mai, he was still getting Cobra De Mai wrong?

    Getting rid of the whip.

    Too many people still associate racing with animal cruelty; while most accept that injuries (and even fatalities) are an inevitable part of the game, the youngsters to whom I speak still see flogging an animal as completely unnecessary.

    Not too despondent about Mossy Fen today- he ran with the choke out and will obviously strip a lot fitter next time. Still, it’s hard to see him reversing the form with Galvin any time soon.

    English King is to be put up for sale at Tattersalls next week. Anyone fancy a TRF whip-round to buy the 2021 Triumph Hurdle winner?

    Chapman is relatively well-behaved on ATR (or Sky Sports Racing, as it is known these days), and it appears that the powers that be at ITV actively encourage him to be controversial and loud… but why? It’s completely unnecessary. :unsure:

    Impressive turn of foot from the winner, Docteur De Ballon.

    Nice performances from the first two; ITCF looked like the run would bring him on but basically outstayed Fiddler. Wouldn’t be surprised if they went in different directions moving forward, with the winner stepping up to three miles and the runner-up dropping back to two.

    I appreciate that he had the benefit of a previous run but I still can’t fathom how Emitom went off favourite; as mentioned yesterday, I’d have had him as the outsider of the trio.

    The fact that the first two readily left him behind suggests that a positive view of the form should be taken.

    Just had a look on Oddschecker and the best prices are 7-4 Fiddler, 15-8 Emitom and 2-1 ITCP. I wonder if we’ll see them all go off as co-favourites? :unsure:

    Seriously impressive from Trueshan, winning easily despite being very free and even pulling for his head half a mile out.

    I suppose that’s his hurdling career put to rest.

    Can’t see beyond him, although it’ll be interesting to see if Henderson takes him on with either Shishkin or Chantry House.
