Said in a previous post about Santini, I don’t think we will see the best from him until the gold cup. Needs more of a test then what he had today and seems to be a horse that really needs a run first time up and should come on a bundle. That being said I did expect him to pull away a bit more after the second last haha. Still think there’s loads from him to come. Does look an out and out stayer and the harder the test the better he will be. Gold cup should suit
She would need to be 160 for me to consider Thomas Darby an Arkle contender. 6 pound penalty and a beat a length by her. That would put him around 153. She’s nowhere near 160 and not much higher than 137. Thomas Darby has zero chance of winning this race
I thought it was pretty horrendous to be honest. The winner is rated a stone lower and was carrying a 6 pound penalty so it’s a 20 pound sway. Yes she’s had a run this season but if you want Thomas Darby to win the Arkle he should be winning that with ease. Absolutely no chance of winning the Arkle. Should be 66/1. Jumping wasn’t fluent at any point either.
I’d give champ a 7/10 for that performance. Gave Dashel Drasher an easy head start at the start of the race too.
I didn’t like Barry’s ride but you could tell he wanted to nurse him round and almost school
Him today as the first half of the race Barry kept pulling him back to be smart over his fences and put a few slow ones in. When Barry started to ask him for big ones he came up with it which was impressive. Got a little outpaced at one point but class. And through and 2 out he was cruising again. Won convincingly and I think a step up in trip will suit and a more positive ride will help too and will
obviously come on for the run. Not a bad start to his chase career
Really looking forwards to seeing champ today. For me he was last seasons best novice hurdler along with klassical dream. I know he got beat at Cheltenham but clearly wanted 3 miles. Was a machine at Aintree.
I think he’s pretty ready for this today having already had a schooling session at Chepstow over the fences.
He’s the most likely winner for this at this stage in my opinion and with a good run today I expect him to be a very strong fav for this. Have had a bit on him for this at 10/1
Lost in translation jumping like peak sprinter Sacre today ! Haha wow that was an unbelievable display of jumping.
I really think last years novices will take over this division this year. It’s been a weak division for a while and there’s some new boys on the block. Lost in translation has made a statement.
Also think the best of Santini is yet to come. Santini wants a slog and a test like the gold cup. 3 miles round Kempton is never going to see him to best effect.
I thought last years RSA was a hot renewal and I know delta let the form down the other day but Santini is the horse to take from that race by a mile.
-He missed his prep run due to vaccinations
-He had to have a vaccination which is a negative in itself
-He got an infected foot a week before the festival
-during the RSA race his shoe came off on the same foot he just had an infection on!
-he still managed a close 2nd!
To do that and still run that well is unbelievable and the performance of the festival for me. Santini is a monster and I’m not willing to admit he’s not until after the gold cup where I think we will see his best display. I get the feeling that he won’t have a big enough stamina test prior to the gold cup.
Lost in translation is a threat to all though by the looks of it.
So potato blames Tizzard form on elegant escape not winning lol
Yet native river has finished over 15 lengths ahead of him … also trained by Colin Tizzard
That’s annoying plus I can’t lay any off unless I have the funds.
Can anyone answer a question?
I’ve got quite a few bets on the exchanges. Prior to today I could see what my profit and loss on each horse for each race would be.
However, now the 48 hour decs are out for tuesdays races and the market has re opened I now cant see my profit and loss for each horse in the supreme Novices for example. Also any horses that I’ve backed for it I now cannot lay off unless I have all the liability funds available in my account to lay it. Whereas usually I wouldn’t need the funds as id previously backed it.
Will this revert back to showing me profit and loss or not guys?
Footpad now lay of the festival
Brandon Castle looks massive at 50/1 for this.
He’s unbeaten over hurdles 3/3 and last run is worth a rating in the 140’s. That was on unfavourable ground too as he was best on the flat on soft/heavy whereas that run was on good ground. Cheltenham bound to be softer ground. This horse jumps unbelievably well for flat horse and is rated 96 on the flat.
Should be lower than 50/1 in my opinion
Personally don’t like betting horses each way when they are only really running for a place. It would be a miracle if one of the front 3 don’t win this. So to me an each way bet in this race doesn’t make sense. Better off betting something to be placed if you think it might run into a place. Same goes for the champion chase what’s the point in betting each way when you cant win. Just do it to be placed
Santinis shoe came off in his racecourse gallop and that’s apparently the reason for the temporary drift
