Too many to mention to be honest haha!!  best ones probably ballycasey and just a par @ 25/1 rsa plus the Mullins trio faugheen, moyle park and briar hill if they go for my elected races. Most of my prices beat the bookies prices at the moment and most are nrfb so i'm in a good position at the minute :)

Apache Stronghold for the Neptune.

The only horse so far which I felt obliged to back for the Fez straight after its win.  Of course, this time tomorrow the dream may already be over...

Oh before anyone asks when he was ever 33/1, it was a special double the last day courtesy of laddies, couldn't resist!
By:
HaylingBilly
When: 14 Dec 13 17:39
CVB - why do you say your Zarkandar World Hurdle AP is lost ? Something been said ? Cant see Z running anywhere else at Cheltenham Festival. Suspect they might hold him back for Aintree Hurdle over 2m4f but if he goes to The Festival I reckon World Hurdle is the only option for him.
By:
CVByrne
When: 14 Dec 13 17:52
Nicholls said he doesn't look like a step up in trip will suit him based on his 2nd to Annie Power. So I think he'll probably run in the Champion Hurdle or skip the festival.
By:
HaylingBilly
When: 14 Dec 13 21:09
Got to be a skip then hasnt it. He can't win a Champion. Guess there may be a dependency on Big Bucks. If BB is not right then Z could well be the Nicholls World Hurdle horse. Got an interest coz have Z and Cue Card in a AP World Hurdle/Gold Cup double placed in April………so as you can imagine at a decent price ! Hence the sensitivity…Grin  GrinGrinGrin

3 in a decent position, 1 that might be OK and 3 down the pan so far, will be adding more in the next couple of weeks.  Most placed either during or soon after the 2013 festival.  can't help but wish I had put the goodies in a multi or two!

Decent
The New One, CH, 2pts win @ 14-1, now 7-2
Cue Card, GC, 2pts win @ 25-1, now 7-1
Solwhit, WH, 2pts win @ 12-1, now 7-1

Possible
Lord Windemere, GC, 1pt win @ 33-1, still 33-1

Down the pan
Invictus, GC, 1pt ew @ 66-1
African Gold, RSA, 1pt win @ 16-1
Grandouet, CH, 1pt win @ 16-1

stevo1...think Apache Stronghold dispatched of Azorian far easier than Briar Hill did. 16/1 too big. However he is a big strong horse - chaser on looks and I'm slightly worried if it comes up firmish in March.

BEATING THE BOOK

FAUGHEEN 12/1 to win any Festival Race

KINGS PALACE 20/1 for the Albert Bartlett

HURRICANE FLY 8/1 for the Champion Hurdle.

UN DE SCEAUX 45/1 Champion Hurdle on Betfair


LEVEL

FAUGHEEN 20/1 for Supreme Novices.


Better profile than usual, as normally have one or two fading into obscurity, but Christmas/New Year races will flush one or two of these out, so a reflection in a couple of weeks time could reverse the position.

YANKEE

Also have Fiver Yankee on:

Kings Palace (Albert Bartlett) 16/1
West Wizard (Supreme Novice) 11/1
Faugheen (Neptune Inv Hurdle) 16/1
Un De Sceaux (Champion Hurdle) 25/1

Happy to have a mix of those with hope value and those with current season improvement, at the moment, but hoping West Wizard and UDS put in some top drawer performances to force themselves into the picture over the coming month.

I just can't have Hurricane Fly whatsoever as much I am a fan of the horse and backed it in both of its champion hurdle victories. He's gonna be too old in March for me and The New One & Tent are up n coming youngsters with Festival experience.

What is laughable however is that Our Conor is shorter than the Fly. To my mind, that was not a strong Triumph Hurdle by any means and we all know the terrible record of 5yos in the race

Same here ballydoyle re backed him last 3 Champions, 13/2 may look huge in 2 weeks? Wont be surprised if Jezki or Our Conor bale out out Leopardstown at xmas?
By:
Ballydoyle
When: 20 Dec 13 09:07
Wouldn't surprise me at all if Jezki and especially Our Conor don't turn up but the latter has to turn up somewhere.needs a run and we can see how good he is

World Hurdle - Salubrious 25/1 ew

Irving looked good at Ascot,happy with 34s on here nice position for few of us.
Hurricane Fly added 6/1 Nr Free bet.

I thought that Cue Card at 6.8 was a decent price for the Ryanair and it still is if he runs. Would probably go off even money should he go there instead of the Gold Cup.

Well done Ballydoyle something to look forward to during the winter months
By:
Ballydoyle
When: 26 Dec 13 22:44
Thanks. Hope so but long way to go....Silviniaco has to prove it at Cheltenham no matter how well he was going in last year's Gold Cup. Still, means I can play around.

Must say this is the most adult thread on the forum. Good ideas being spread around without people getting ultra defensive over their picks. I've picked up a few hints on here anyway and hopefully as a bunch we cane those cream cookies!

I'm still crying at my 100/1 slip mtoy supreme/CH double from last year. this year has been a strange one for me, nothing has really got me excited in the novice races where as usually I'd already have a strong opinion on most of them. Only 2 horses I've played ante post this season are MTOY and Conti.

had a 5 pt double Tent 10/1 champion and 8/1 Gold Cup last April.

Had the same bet as Bally Silvinaco Conti King George Gold Cup 33/1 3pt win also had that same bet doubled up with Tent for champion hurdle at 4/1.

I think i need to start studying some more races If one one of them gets injured in the next few months I won't be looking forward to the festival at all.

Brooksie, just found that thread and saw a post from you from earlier:

Brooksielad 13 Jan 13 10:34 Joined: 05 Jan 08 | Topic/replies: 1,458 | Blogger: Brooksielad's blog

I've emailed PP,Bet365 for a quote on My Tent Or Yours for the 2014 Champion Hurdle.

Prices given:

Paddy Power 25/1

Bet365 33/1

I'm waiting on an email from Ladbrokes, think they may give me a bigger price because they have been stand out about the horse for a while

By:

When: 27 Dec 13 15:48
Haha yeah I probably should have had at least a little play at 33-1 more fool me thinking the supreme is an easy race to win.

You manage to get any fancy prices this year well chief?

Well pleased with Conti in King George, Faugheen still has to jump better, Grandouet free bet on way?
Irving looking good, The Fly tomorrow will will see what the upstarts have?
By:

When: 29 Dec 13 00:21
Bally do you know why Ballycasey not running today? Thanks havent read anything but then it is W.Mullins.
By:
Ballydoyle
When: 29 Dec 13 01:28
No idea,. I had expected it to run and wanted to see it but I think Mullins has seen a few of his get beat the past few days and thought hmm...will go for an easier race for more experience in near future then Leopardstown in Feb.
By:
Ballydoyle
When: 29 Dec 13 01:32
If there is one horse I'm confident of getting beat it's Our Conor. Just don't think he beat much in Triumph Hurdle and he's got the 5yo factor in March. I've got The New One and Tent on my side and confident they are better class than the rest apart from the Fly obviously but time catches up with all horses. Runs tomorrow so will see more.
