backed this horse last year several times but I'm laying for world hurdle due to belowa) the tizzard stable form has been very good all season so far - this has happened on multiple occasions in past with other stables and then we find they blow out at festivalb) the ground will be different from all other runs this season, although not too different from aintree last year, and not many produce their best form independent of conditions so very possible the improvement this year has been ground facilitatedc) no specific reason to doubt his jumping but horses who run up a sequence very often make a mistake at the festival so could be due oned) not a fan of tom scue) the ratings improvement has not come from beating the main challengersf) nicholls is more and more bullish on aux petits soins and i backed it last year as i do most of the saint des saints so fingers crossedbut GL to all
Seems like your laying more in hope then facts by the points you've put up.
1- Hoping the Tizzards lose form, are you laying cue card also n that basis?
2-Has proved at Aintree and Punchestown that genuine good ground is no issue, against top class opposition and the 2nd fav for the WH.
3-Pure blind hope that as he hasn't made a mistake yet he's due to make one? Baffling that one.
4- Not a fan of the jockey, Barring punchestown (arguably not his fault way race panned out) Can't see on thing he's done wrong on the horse?
5- Beating REVE at ascot was impressive especially when look at his form since, He couldn't of beat them any easier. I think theres only 2 horses he hasn't beat that is favoured in the market? and he was well on top of one of them last year when it departed on GOOD ground.
6- SO you've picked all these holes in THISTLECRACK but then you finish it off my throwing your hat in with a horse that has more holes in it then a sass cheese? Got to improve like 20 odd pounds, hasn't run in over a year, has had problems, looks like main jockey for stable going elsewhere, hasn't beat any contender for the race. My point is I'm not saying he cant win but picking holes in a horse that isn't there and then finishing it up by putting up an animal who has a million legitimate concerns doesnt seem quite right.
