I really fancy this horse for the National should he make the weights, I know it’s going to be close. Really taking performance to win the North Yorkshire National at Catterick last time and seems like he is made for a marathon trip. Very similar profile to that of Aurora’s Encore a few years ago! 150/1 with Bet365 was simply too good to turn down. Thoughts?

Good example of how **** ante post markets can be these days that only two horses are priced up at 150/1 or bigger for this event... the price (if you can get on) is a plus in itself, add to that trainer previous form and the fact the horse has never fallen there's some positives to get you going... another being the horse likes to race prominently which I prefer myself... on the negative side the 14lb hike for winning at Catterick is plenty enough but does give connections a day out if they fancy it... speaking after the Catterick win the jock stated that horse may well be a National type next season...

He did look good in the North Yorkshire National at Catterick last month: he jumped well and stayed. Against that, he has only ever won in small fields, and has never won at a better than class 3 race. The price reflects that, of course, but he is not for me. Maybe next year.

Paul Kealy's put him up for the Racing Post.

in at 55 with weight of 10. 04 has reasonable chance of making it looks like you got a good price at 150/1 good luck

It could be a year too early looking at his experience in general but that is seen within the price. You will never get a 150/1 shot that ticks all the boxes but this chap seems to tick plenty. Thanks Dragon! I could see it was a stand out straight away but now the horse has been supported and mentioned in a few places, makes my price look even more juicy!

Ran well on Saturday at Uttoxeter in woeful conditions. Interesting outsider for sure.

Not so much of an outsider now. Good luck.

Will be looking out for a price for this one for next year... doubt 150/1 will be about... sitting pretty in the box seat until that early fall...

apparently they created 3 GN type fences up at Malton for a few of the hopefuls to practice on a couple of weeks ago, and I Just Know jumped them badly, going through the top of them most of the time
