What's happened to Otago Trail?
Report Fabulous February 14, 2017 5:43 PM GMT
Not sure Mully, just noticed because I had bet him, and realised he was missing from my open bets. Gutted, was on him at big odds, and had laid at 60's, but was hoping to lay off some more.

Hope he's ok, as I think he's decent.

Looks unlikely as can't find one dubious runner and there were none at this time last year.  Was hoping the price might hold and he would sneak in.  As it is looks like neither.  Haven't had a bet yet but the two that took my fancy were Foxrock and Blessthewings, with Foxrock taken out and Bless looking unlikely to feature I'll have to come up with someat else.

Ballynagour won't be making way anyway. Was going well when unseating on the second circuit last year. Top graded form in the Melling Chase and the Bowl here in recent years. Imagine telling the owner he's not going to run him to get a different horse in! Shocked
Report CLYDEBANK29 April 5, 2017 3:22 PM BST
Good To Know was rated good enough to be a 10/1 shot against VieuxLR and Blaklion on it's last start and before that won an 11 runner hcap and before that was 6l second to One For Arthur in a 20 runner staying hcap, yet it's a bigger price than the hapless Cocktails At Dawn.  Probably wants soft ground and it's going to be good ground, so maybe its going to bypass this for the Scottish version.
