Don't think Penhill & Native Rivers was intended because they were both injured

I don't get your point Irish
Report irishone February 18, 2018 11:29 PM GMT
my point is
most trainers target cheltenham based upon the season
others target a year out
many good horses for courses at cheltenham
e g quevega !
identifying them profitable ?  not sure
merely looking

...or how about that pacha du polder ?
11 year old last seen out plodding around the foxhunter at aintree ten months ago having won at cheltenham last year.has a prep run this week before the foxhunters at cheltenham again. 12\1 and laid out for the race.

Byrony Frost won't be on Pacha Du Polder this year, but the horse still looks too big at 12's.

Total Recall's main target was the Grand National but has now been switched to the Gold Cup. He could well be still improving after moving from Sandra Hughes to Willie Mullins and will have the stamina, if he's good enough to be there at the last.

Yanworth is the latest high profile horse given a definitive target. Let's hope Yorkhill and Douvan will be the next.

How about tizzards PINGSHOU , 10th in last years supreme, shocked tizard with manner of his win at aintree over 2 miles, beaten behind cilias emery and melon at punchestown, plodding on ... 50/1 for the ballymore , not seen for ten months...

...sorry not tge ballymore meant gthe champion hurdle

irishone - Pingshou is apparently a notoriously difficult horse to keep sound. Latest word is that he misses Cheltenham after "throwing a splint".

You seem to just be listing horses that haven't run because they've been injured.

Native river and wonderful charm,their whole season looks like it only revolves around the gold cup and the foxhunters
