McCoy on the ground: "There'll be a lot of strange results at Cheltenham because it'll be so testing"

McCoy says the ground is not a negative for My Tent Or Yours in the Supreme but says it will be good news for Champagne Fever.
Ruby Walsh will ride Champagne Fever in the Supreme, says Paul Nicholls. His own Dodging Bullets "worked great" this morning

Also at Sandown's post-racing Cheltenham Festival preview. With McCoy is  Nicholls, Henderson

Henderson says his only concern re My Tent is the final hill, "different to anything he's done before"

Henderson adds that Puffin Billy is another concern for him, now that he's expected to run in the Supreme

McCoy says he gave Overturn a chance of giving Simonsig a race in the Arkle on good ground. On soft, he thinks S just has to jump round

Zarkandar another who "worked great" this morning, Nicholls says. Testing ground will be "absolutely ideal"

McCoy accepts that Binocular (which he rode) and Hurricane Fly were held up too far back last year in the Champion
By:

McCoy: "I would like it to have been drier for Binocular" because his quick jumping is more of an asset on good

Henderson: "I think we've got to accept it's going to be soft and that's not going to help us" in the Champion Hurdle

Henderson is pressed + pressed by Nick Luck to express a preference for one of his in the Champion. Eventually goes for Binocular...

but to be honest, he didn't appear in deadly earnest at the time. He basically didn't want to split them

Nicholls says Ruby Walsh rides Unioniste in the RSA. "Ruby's very keen on him," he says

Henderson + Nicholls say they've both heard rumours that Dynaste will go for Jewson, not RSA. But Nicholls says Pipe has not decided yet

McCoy puts in a good word for Goulanes in RSA because he stays so well. "This race will be won by an out-and-out stayer"

McCoy says he wouldn't be surprised if Sizing Europe + Cue Card ran in the 2m Champion Chase because of testing ground

Andy Stewart: "Sprinter Sacre is the biggest certainty since Ben Hur". Nicholls accepts that everyone else is playing for 2nd place

tizzard said cue card will only run in the champion chase if sprinter sacre misses the race

Sounds as if the ground is going to be soft than I expected. Has Andy Stewart said anything about Tataniano?

it will be beautiful jumping ground I am certain of that, fresh, unraced on, turned, spiked, good growth of grass, not watered artificially... perfect, bet it rides really well

7mm yesterday Howdi, soft all over.

McCoy + Nicholls both feel First Lieutenant should run in the Ryanair

Nicholls says Ghizao could be 3rd or 4th in Ryanair if everything falls right

Henderson says Finians Rainbow is in tremendous form but may not run this week because of the soft ground

Henderson says Riverside Theatre didn't win the Ryanair last year, Barry Geraghty did. But hopes RT is back to his best for this year's race

Henderson: "Ulcers can affect a horse quite considerably." Riverside's have been treated + gone since last run
By:

When: 09 Mar 13 18:09
Riverside is a shocking price for the Ryanair, no recent form, had ulcers, hated the track last year. Can't see him beating several horses with outstanding course form.

Nicholls says Ruby Walsh has committed to Wonderful Charm in the World Hurdle. Reports RW told him Quevega won't run

Nicholls on Wonderful Charm: "He'll run a big race. Whether he'll stay, we don't know"
By:

McCoy says Get Me Out Of Here would have had a chance in the World on good but doesn't fancy him on soft. Solwhit the value, he says

Henderson: "They will have a Ryanair Hurdle one day but the problem is, Oscar Whisky will be 22 and I'll be 104"

horses that have run in a champion hurdle before have terrible records in the world hurdle, may not have had a winner, so peddlars, OW, Celestial Halo all unlikely winners

Mysilv got beat a whisker. Where does this "terrible record" come from ?
By:

When: 09 Mar 13 18:17
Henderson says he's "not particularly" looking forward to Oscar Whisky this week. Drier ground would have helped "close the gap" on RDS

Henderson says Oscara Dara will now run in the World Hurdle, not the Coral Cup
By:

When: 09 Mar 13 18:17
I looked it up, the numbers were terrible, not that I retained them in my mind but it was bad reading for anyone backing them

just saying, don't have to believe me

Henderson will run Cash And Go in the Coral Cup. Same owner has Wonderful Charm, which is now in the World

Nick Luck says Far West is not that big. Nicholls corrects him. "He's a proper horse. Ruby's going to ride him"
By:

Probably the same place as where Irish Horses have terrible records in the Triumph, despite two of them finishing 2nd in the last two renewals. Who knows, on Tuesday afternoon we might be saying Unaccompanied got beat by a Champion Hurdler in her renewal, Zark or Grandouet.
