backed him each time the season, and not lost the faith, just can't understand the price on here, thought he would be odds on.

Mengli jumped badly today. Probably cooked anyway.

on a recovery mission today, not lost the faith, has got to give weight to getabird but think at the trip he can still win.

was wondering if j kennedy is still injured or suspended? as back at fairyhouse tomorrow.

He probably has special dispensation from the stewards to stay in bed all day whenever Mengli Khan is running.

I backed it...........beaten fair and square ...........winner looks top notch
Report impossible123 January 13, 2018 3:06 PM GMT
Winner was impressive, and has retained his Bumper ability from last season prior to injury. Mengli Khan was beaten fair and square, I believe; if pushed for an excuse maybe Mengli Khan's last run (and mishap) was only 2 weeks away - just a bit too close nevertheless, the winner Getabird would have won anyway.

Bad ground crawls across the water not key relevance to Supreme imo.

Didn't look much pace on today, correct me if I'm wrong clock watchers.

Patrick said he should have went quicker as he wanted it to be a real gallop and was surprised the acceleration he showed between the last 2 hurdles.
That was the really impressive part for me, he had them all in trouble a fair way.
Report impossible123 January 13, 2018 3:58 PM GMT
The winner Getabird is very good and the 2nd Mengli Khan (won a Grade 1) is no slouch either trying to give the winner 6lbs; both Supreme bound I hope.
Report cardifffc January 13, 2018 4:00 PM GMT
winner must be  short for the supreme...looks very classy
Report impossible123 January 13, 2018 4:05 PM GMT
The winner Getabird was 5/1 for the Bumper race at the Festival last year prior to his injury; he is best price 4/1 (7/2 nrnb) for the Supreme now.
Report differentdrum January 13, 2018 4:29 PM GMT
I wouldn't rush to take 4/1. Mullins perceived first string is always going to be short. He won well enough today but it will be a lot tougher to dominate a much bigger field in a Supreme.

Might be of no relevance but I think the only time he has gone left handed he ran out in point. Today he collided with the rail several times on the run in. Was that down to the jock or the horse?
Report BornToWin January 13, 2018 6:44 PM GMT
Of course its underpriced.

The supreme winner usually ends up being a stayer, so when the 'championship pace' kicks in and the big field are all trying its a world away from these muddles.
Report Afc888 January 13, 2018 8:14 PM GMT
Any opinions on as to weather or not Getabird will definitely go to the supreme. Couldn't be taking 4/1 the way Ricci is with his horses in regards to placing. Obviously has the other one Sharjah which looked as though he was on his way to beating Mengli Khan last time out.
Report differentdrum January 13, 2018 8:30 PM GMT
I think it often seems like a case of looking for the easiest opportunity rather than what suits the horse best.

The general perception appears to be that the Ballymore looks the strongest of the three races but both Samcro and On The Blindside have had to miss races.

The Irish form seems to revolve around Mengli Khan. If he isn't that good it casts a doubt over both the Sharjah and Getabird runs.
Report granitjack January 13, 2018 8:54 PM GMT
This horse is probably the most over rated horse in training over the jumps imo.
Report impossible123 January 13, 2018 9:26 PM GMT
I think the winner Getabird, notwithstanding my opinions of his connections, has the form and potential to win the Supreme given the thrashing he gave to Mengli Khan earlier today. And Mullins whose motto is "to secure a win" regardless of the quality of the race, an encounter against Samcro who's regarded as Elliot's best juvenile hurdler in the Ballymore is unlikely, I'd think.

Mullins has won 3 of the last 5 Supreme Hurdle, finishing 2nd in the latest two renewals.
Report granitjack January 13, 2018 9:52 PM GMT
Agreed impossible. The winner is in a different league to Mengli Khan. I think the second named will be in time even worse than Ivanovitch Gorbatov if that’s possible and he won the triumph....
Report impossible123 January 13, 2018 10:05 PM GMT
Getabird was a short price fav (5/1) for the Festival Bumper last season prior to withdrawal after sustaining an injury. Also, I was very surprised connections pitched him in the Moscow Flyer Hurdle where their best juveniles tended to ply their trade, and against Mengli Khan, a Grade 1 winner too.

The question is...will he do better than Min or Melon? Let's hope so, I say.
Report granitjack January 13, 2018 10:14 PM GMT
Reminds me of Faugheen a bit Impossible. Stays a lot further but has the class to win at this trip over some useful rivals as well. Plus in the supreme you need a horse that stays well so I think he could be top drawer.
Report impossible123 January 13, 2018 10:41 PM GMT
Let's hope he wins the Supreme doing handstands for his backers.

Ran very well on ground that didn't suit, unlucky in that respect? Perhaps, time will tell.
