Exactly..... I'd be far more excited with Summerville Boy going forward with what he did. He'd be up there as performance of the week for me, to lose all momentum and lengths at the worst part of the race and to get it all back was a bit special. He has tactical speed and looks to be laden with stamina too.

Tom George confirming that Summerville Boy will be aimed at the Champion Hurdle and won’t run again this season.

As for performance of the week I'd have to go for Summerville Boy. Might not have been a vintage Supreme but he really should not have had any chance after the mistake two out and then the blunder at the last. To get going again twice and win was the mark of a very decent horse.

25/1 for the CH just looked way too big, especially after Tom George confirmed he would probably stay over hurdles.

I don't think I'd necessarily fancy it for a CH though, although 25/1 was obviously too big, one thing it will provide us with is perhaps some opposition to BD in a trial or two pre festival next year.

His two best runs have been on heavy. Trainer thinks he's fine on better ground and he was right when he reasoned previous Cheltenham defeats were due to slow pace. All the same he still has to prove he can be as impressive on g/s.
