last years 1-2 nicholls canyon and unowhatimeanharry  are at the head of the market but unwimh is a 9 yo and its probably fair to say we know how good he is hard to see him improving at his age ,nichols canyon will have every chance but one i have never taken to, a fair price but one who interests me is hendos thomas campbell ,who looks to have improved for  the step up to 3 miles ,has won 2 staying handicap hurdles this season and is an up and comer at  decent price around 18/1 on here and 16s with the books .
now officially rated 158 with improvement anticipated he could be a fair bit shorter come march . entered in the long walk hurdle at ascot over christmas he appeals at the prices .
selection stayers hurdle ....thomas campbell 1 point each way 16s or better ............around 5s -6s a place on here for buttons but worth taking the crumbs imo..good luck sand as ever input and opinions welcome .

I expect Ncanyon to strip a lot fitter this time,and back to 3m expect a much better performance.
Think hes the one to beat come March,but agree AJ is interesting if she is aimed at the race.
No bet for me yet,but wish I had backed Sam Spinner a few months ago!!

Any supporter of Unowhatimeanharry would feel dishearten after his performance today. And unless too much use had been made of him he seemed to have regressed - he just managed to finish infront of The Worlds End. I hope Nichols Canyon can improve significantly from his previous run otherwise he could be going the same way as Unowhatimeanharry; I'm also waiting on the reappearance of Penhill the winner of the Albert Bartlett despite he being a charge of Mullins.

At the moment the two improving youngsters seem to be Sam Spinner and Beer Goggles. But I've jumped the gun and have backed Apples Jade for this race with/out the blessing of her trainer.

NC sets a high standard, any horse that has class form at 2 miles and then goes on to prove his stamina over 3 has a head start on the outright stayers and he's proven that now, 7's looks very fair.

Looking much much less lightly AJ will contest this race after all despite getting up to win. But I was curious as to why she did not make the running per usual.

Could Yanworth and/or Finians Oscar run here? Both unnatural jumpers but slick hurdlers.

Finian's Oscar is set to have his chasing career interrupted for a tilt at the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle – and he may not be the only one after it emerged connections of other high-profile stars are sitting on the fence about moving away from the bigger obstacles.
Yanworth is also under consideration for a switch back to hurdles in March, while fellow leading novice chaser Willoughby Court is expected to be given the option of lining up in the Cheltenham Festival's Thursday showpiece by receiving an entry. The £325,000 contest closes next Tuesday.
Possibly moving in the opposite direction is L'Ami Serge, although the French Champion Hurdle hero remains more likely to feature in the Stayers' – whose market is headed by massive improver Sam Spinner at 4-1 – than the Ryanair Chase, for which he has been entered.
Finian's Oscar had already been a best-priced 25-1 for the Stayers' and 16-1 with those firms offering a non-runner-no-bet concession having been defeated on his most recent two novice chase outings.
Last season he struck at the highest level twice over hurdles, most impressively when scoring by three lengths at Aintree. The six-year-old will first revert to his old job in the Cleeve Hurdle on January 27.

Indeed, if he wins the Cleeve Hurdle he'd be nearer fav for this race, I firmly believe. Similarly, Yanworth (McManus/Unowhatimeanharry) if he takes this route too. But L'Ami serge could go the opposite way eg Ryanair.

I'm sorry but some of Tizzard's running plans for his charges this season and last did not reflect the experience and acumen of a top trainer. I also agree he ought to have persevered with the original plan of Finian's Oscar for the rest of the season rather than chopping and changing on whims; the JLT, RSA and the Stayers are very open races this Cheltenham.

Impossible he got beat in Ireland.

Now they are basicailly saying he is an out and out stayer.??????ConfusedConfused  Have they forgotton about the run in Punchestown last year?? They are making a complete b0llox of this horse.  Why they were not happy sticking to JLT route is beyond me. 2M 4/5F around Cheltenham was his most impressive run this year. Mind boggling stuff.

It's the usual nonsense from Imp, CCM.
After Yorkhill gets tired towards the end of his seasonal debut in a G1 3m chase, he's nominating about 8 other options for it - including the Champion Hurdle! Yet Tizzard should stick to the plan with FO Crazy
Anyway, there's far too much written about both FO and Yorkhill (mainly by that clown) on here, so I'll leave it at that.
I do agree, however, that the Stayers looks wide open - however, one with a touch of class is TNO and he is apparently targeting it. The only concern would be if there are any further injury news regarding the champion hurdle market leaders, they might decide it's worth one last shot.
Report unclepuncle January 10, 2018 2:50 PM GMT
Presuambly they will aim TNO at the Haydock Park Champion Hurdle Trial race he has won for the last 3 years - even though he always makes incredibly hard work of it.

Then I guess his Cheltenham target will depend on the ground - genuine soft and I bet they go for the CH, good'ish and it will be the Stayers.

With all these new potential runners the Stayers will end up far more competitve than the races the connections are switching them from.Crazy
Report impossible123 January 10, 2018 4:49 PM GMT
'joevalue', you are correct. Finian's Oscar was outstayed by Bacardy in Ireland despite looking like the winner. The former might win a weak RSA eg without Yanworth or Monalee but would struggle to win the JLT because of the anticipated quicker pace and his none-too-confident jumping.

Thistlecrack should never have been targeting the Gold Cup last season when he was head and shoulders above the rest, and got injured as a consequence. Otherwise, he'd have bagged another Stayers title, I firmly believe.

I'd like to see Yanworth here more than any present fencers given his owner's other once gold prospect ie Unowhatimeanharry has been proven rather mediocre this season. Yanworth would have a chance 2nd to none, I believe.

I understand what people are saying about Yanworth, but he's just won a dipper (beating the fav for the JLT in the process) and despite the chat, I can't see him reverting to hurdles.
They're given a year as novices for a reason and that's to improve and sharpen up their jumping without having to compete against slicker more battle-hardened rivals.
He's always looked a chaser and from his bumper days the yard thought they had a Gold Cup horse on their hands - I personally was surprised that they didn't send him over fences straight after his novice hurdling campaign, but then they probably thought the champion hurdle had an easier look to it, I suppose he did start favourite.
Nonetheless, I'd persevere, he will improve and could yet have his day in the sun.
Report DontBeSakhee January 10, 2018 8:59 PM GMT
In terms of pocket talk, then personally I'd have rather seen FO run over 3m over fences as I have an AP ticket for the TAX. However, removing personal greed from the equation then given FO's jumping his last few races this is probably the safest option.

However as has already been said, CT has not done his rep any good. Bar running the horse over 4m and the flat it's going to have run over every NH distance and over both obstacles. To my mind that cannot be a good thing for the horse in terms of winning at the big spring festivals. At least with Buveur D'Air, despite changing codes last year, he ran over the same distance. It's a bit amateurish from an outsiders view.

Perhaps more importantly, getting back to my pocket. What will happen with Supasundae? I've got 16 for the Stayers and think he has (had?) a reasonable chance! With both the Potts dying (RIP) it's unclear now how things will work. I suspect CT would have been kicked up his backside were they still alive.

I got 16, as once we hit Xmas, usually, if I'm having a bet I'll cover it with an AP for the Fes. Means I get a fair amount of crap AP bets that go down, but I do end up with a few that are reasonable. I did Supasundae in the Christmas Hurdle and he ran a stonker against AJ so the price collapsed.

I think his win over Unwhatimeanharry in the Long Walk Hurdle has yet to be fully appreciated as he is not from a top stable. Finian's Oscar is 3/1 fav but was beaten over 20f in Ireland by Bacardy; Wholestone (4/1 2nd fav) finished behind Beer Goggles in the Long walk Hurdle.

They have had plenty of time to run him over 3m during his career and declined to do so,and this could well be a hint of desperation,kind of last chance saloon if you like, as he gets towards the end of his career.

supersundae now resembles banker material to me. good enough to beat faugheen, albeit a horse who is probably past his best. and his advantage over sam spinner is that he's also proven at cheltenham.

I really think he could absolutely dot up.

Faugheen is certainly past his best,but still a good run to win over 2m for a  stayer,and has to have a big chance.
Bl00dy awful race for a Champion Hurdle though i thought.

I think the 3m on the New Course will find Supa out.

I was very surprised Supasundae was able to go with Faugheen from the off and then beat him in a 2m race, but clearly that was not the Faugheen we all knew. Surely, after Leopardstown today King and McManus must realise they have a star that had beaten Supasundae in the Liverpool Stayers last season and would have an excellent chance of winning this race than the RSA if given the opportunity.

They would be stark raving mad not to run Yanworth

Would be surprised if yanworth doesn't go for the stayers as the trainer said he entered him on his form at Liverpool and the horse he beat is now the favourite for the stayers

I have the stamina concerns for Supasundae too.  I'm not too convinced that Apples Jade is a 3 miler and he couldn't get passed her, and he also couldn't beat Yanworth at Aintree - does look to be improved though.  I personally think he's a 2.5 miler but we'll see - if he stays 3m then he probably wins.

looking forward to this race the more I think about it, have backed beer googles before he lost LTO but really have no idea at all who's going to win! Won't have any more bets on the race and just watch with intrigue

Definitely mate, an intriguing race. Hasn't got the star names running through it, but it's definitely competitive.

exactly and sometimes it's a race like this that makes a star, or one that throws out a random result......we may not know til Cheltenham 2019 :D

A bit of bite for Yanworth into 10 here from 17 yesterday. Decision soon or made perhaps.

Alan King stated it was either Stayers Hurdle or RSA.
