Does anybody know what the festival target is for Defy Logic?  I see he is in the Albert Bartlett and Neptune.  Would imagine Neptune more likely based on him running over 2 miles today I doubt they would step up to 3 miles.

Looks a serious horse and 16/1 looks a good price to me for the Neptune.

Also are any bookies no runner no bet yet for the festival?

Really hope its Neptune as backed him ages ago at nice price after watching his impressive bumper.
Also backed him for Supreme but he was not in entries which surprised me to be honest.

That was very impressive today.
Must be a big player in the Neptune i reckon.

Owner dont have many entered in the Neptune,Waheeb and Fishers Cross only ones as far as i can see.FC will surely run in the AB,so really think DL is Neptune bound.

I've backed him at 25/1 with a bookie offering free bet if it doesn't run.  I'm surprised how under the radar his run yesterday has gone.  The horse who fell at the last in the race yesterday was no slouch, but was going to be beaten 10-20 lengths on the bridle if he stayed on his feet.  I'm hoping i'm correct in thinking this horse could be special.

Gave the well-regarded Mad Brian 15lbs and what would have been a thrashing. Jumped ok, fiddled a few but that's no bad thing (will have learned a lot) and no surprise to see him improve massively for experience. 20-1 for the Neptune? Yes please.

Only problem in my opinion is his trainer is bloody special Cry

Has anyone heard any further news as to this one's participation in the Neptune? I read that they'll leave it to connections, but 30+ seems a very big price if the horse is going for the race. Unless I'm getting carried away in thinking that a maiden winner is a big price for a novice championship event Crazy

Backed him at 2/1 tomorrow with champ going over to ride.  Hoping he wins and heads to the top of the market for the Neptune.

If you really want to **** defy logic, then i dare you to defy logic, and point out a race where Ladrokes arent the ****g worst price of all the bookies.

Graeme you are like the guy at the bar that is butting into every conversation with inane drivel.

Log off and come back when you have something worthwhile to say.

Piss off Eboue, you are like the guy at the bar who has no money left, in other words you have no horse racing or general equine knowledge, so you hang about and evesdrop, in the hope you learn something. You are below me like the ground floor.

Love the RP analysis of it's last run - reads like the owner and trainer wrote it themselves !  Hot race today but a win for Defy Logic could well see it propelled into the mix.  Interesting day for the Neptune market.

Disappointed Defy Logic couldn't win today.  Annie Power looks very decent indeed.

Not sure what connections of Defy Logic have decided if anything, but Annie Power is swerving the festival so I would still be hopeful with Defy Logic.  He has beaten Don Cossack and Moscow Mannon easily and they are no slouches.

He was keen, too, and it's just his 2nd hurdles run of his life. Initially I was disappointed but having thought about it more it's pretty encouraging. I do think he'd be better off for a step up in trip

He's generally shortened in the market looking at odds checker for the Neptune.  Fingers crossed they give it a go
Report Mister Westsound February 24, 2013 7:48 PM GMT
History will prove that the horse DL lost to today will be a special mare imo.  Decent run and a step up to 2 and a half plus a change of tactics (assuming the horse settles better) and I feel he at least deserves to take his chance.
