i think this is a big price and backed it to win a nice return, Great prep run last time out and looks nicely weighted.

Here is hoping

Have backed this fella at 33/1 too. Looking more and more likely to get a run. Definite shortlist material.

Ive got him at 160, so am desperate to see him get in! what a season she,s having!
Report The Dragon April 4, 2016 7:21 PM BST
any news on wether it will get in?
Report regvarney April 4, 2016 7:31 PM BST
also on this one at bigger prices....
he's no 42 so only 2 to come out, must be slightly odds-on to get in, imo...
reading other threads, perhaps gilgamboa and pendra may be the ones to drop out ?
plus, usually one found to be not quite right before Saturday ?
Report Sultan April 4, 2016 7:53 PM BST
because his handicap mark has risen he will rise to number 41

really sultan ? hope you are right...
on atr list of entries he has number 42 with knock house at 41 and pineau de re at 43...
surely they have already been sorted into order ?
Report Sultan April 4, 2016 8:22 PM BST
Horses on equal handicap weights are eliminated by lowest current handicap mark. As Bishops Road has won since weights published and risen a few pounds he will get in ahead of Knock House.
Report regvarney April 4, 2016 8:25 PM BST
cheers sultan, yeh that makes sense, and knock house due to go down 1 lb, bishops road up 10 lbs in future...
just wonder why they have them the other way round number-wise after today's decs
Report regvarney April 4, 2016 8:41 PM BST
just noticed bishops road is entered for Topham on Friday (2m5f), for which he is 20/1...
hope Kerry Lee doesn't think he might miss the big one and run him in this instead ? ...
could understand it if down at number 50, but surely not at 41 ?
Report dunlaying April 4, 2016 8:59 PM BST
I thought he would be 41 but do not bank on it. If you look at the 10:2 horses you will see that Smudge-The-Blot has them in order of preference, his preference that is.

2m 5f bit short dont u think must only be in if it doesnt get i if you follow my drift

There are two possible defectors. Connections need to keep their nerve.
Report Dan Chipowski April 7, 2016 11:34 AM BST
All 40 stood their ground this morning. So first reserve.
Report asparagus April 7, 2016 1:07 PM BST
You would assume Kerry Lee is phoning round quite a few owners/trainers trying to persuade them to withdraw their horse. For me Bishops Road should be close to 2nd favourite if it gets in and the ground is somewhere between soft and good to soft.
Report The Dragon April 7, 2016 1:55 PM BST
cmon someone withdraw might back him in the topham as a saver
Report regvarney April 7, 2016 2:49 PM BST
I think I read that the reserves are only there until lunchtime tomorrow ? anybody know if this is the case ?
so if a horse is pulled out late Friday, then only 39 runners....that would be a kick in the nuts
Report regvarney April 7, 2016 2:53 PM BST
still left in for the Topham tomorrow, so I suppose she leaves it in until finds out lunchtime whether it makes the cut ?
Report ReaseHeath April 7, 2016 3:08 PM BST
yes, deadline for reserves is 1pm tomorrow, moved from 9am last year after Carlito Brigante was declared a non runner too late for Bailey's Concerto to get a run

If he runs in the Topham tomorrow where do we stand with or ante-post bets for the National on here. Will they still be refunded?
Report impossible123 April 7, 2016 6:35 PM BST

By 1pm tomorrow if nothing above drops out BR would have been deemed to have been balloted out ie money back - I had my stake on Cause Of Causes refunded today as it did not even make the reserve list.
