Pingshou who was fourth at Newbury (by 7 lengths) came out and won a decent novice hurdle at Cheltenham on Friday. Combination of form being franked and bookies trying to take a little bit of cash I imagine

If you look at horses from the bumper in punch the 3rd and 4th horse have both either won bumpers or hurdles after and like jb said the horse pingshou was 4th at new and won at chelt I hsvernt seen anything special at min and his form looks solid at the min if wins at kemp in next couple weeks he be lot shorter

Not only has his form been boosted, but I think its also a reaction to the fact the Irish don't seem to have a strong hand in this race this year. Senewalk has already disappointed, the Royal Bond didn't throw up a potential star, and the winner may go down the Mares Novice route anyway. Crack Mome wasn't particularly impressive the other day.

Jenkins has always had a huge reputation, I actually think the current prices aren't too out of line. Especially when you consider Hendo's record in the race as well.

Jenkins (13/8) and his stablemates (11/4) are in the Supreme Trial Novices at Ascot this friday. The 64k question is will both run though or will it be ground dependent? Personally, I'd doubt very much both will run with so many more races and rich pickings prior to Cheltenham should they go for the same race at Cheltenham.
Report Fallen Angel December 12, 2016 8:40 PM GMT
still 7/1 available, betting on the skybet suggests that maybe lough derg spirit is the one on friday rather than Jenkins.  Thought Pinshou was an impressive winner on Friday and that Newbury race could work out to be strong form.  The irish don't seem to have as many this season as others have noted, although we have yet to see Melon, Blow by blow, Lucky pass might also be an interesting one.
Report Can't Catch Me December 12, 2016 9:01 PM GMT
Agreed about Melon, but surely Blow by Blow will be more of a stayer? Hope so anyway as Ive backed him for the AB!

hidden cargo who caught my eye when fifth behind jenkins at newbury runs tomorrow at wincanton.
Report Can't Catch Me December 13, 2016 1:16 PM GMT
Good run from Hidden Cargo there. Certainly done his form no harm.
Report Jb23 December 13, 2016 1:53 PM GMT
Agreed CCM. Hidden Cargo has made Jenkins look a lot better than the fave making Moon Racer look!

Bags Groove entered in a Novice Hurdle at Newbury tomorrow. You'd hope he could win this and give the form another nice boost.
Report Can't Catch Me December 13, 2016 10:14 PM GMT
Another chance to see the merit of the Jenkins form  this week as Captain Forez is jocked up for Ascot on Friday. Could be an interesting race and give us some idea how LDS and Jenkins compare.

8/11 for the Casino Novices Hurdle on Boxing Day against a very mediocre field - will it win well? Otherwise antepost implosion a cert.

1.6 for Monday? That's paying for my Christmas Love
Report impossible123 December 25, 2016 3:07 PM GMT
A 60% return in just over 5 mins of uncertainty is acceptable if he jumps impeccably.
Report impossible123 December 26, 2016 1:09 PM GMT
Never picked his feet up and back to the drawing board, I'm afraid.

AN absolute Slowboat..NR at Chelts would imagine!Youd have to hope something amiss....Terrible run.
Report impossible123 December 26, 2016 7:21 PM GMT
I have not given up hope yet (nrnb with Sky***) after one bad run - it is too bad to be true.
How humbling horse racing can be? Hendo, just two weeks ago, had two Supreme Hurdle hopefuls in Jenkins and LDS but now both disappointed big time.
Report Rocky88888 December 29, 2016 6:47 AM GMT
Anyone know what was wrong with the horse
Report impossible123 January 6, 2017 8:41 PM GMT
Not a whisper for his poor run. Is the horse ok?
Report sc1883 January 7, 2017 2:25 PM GMT
Hendo recently stated supreme still the plan so something must have come to light cos it aint winning anything but a seller based on that last run. Still think ive done my money in though!
Report impossible123 January 7, 2017 3:52 PM GMT
Thanks 'sc183'. I'd not write him off just yet on the back of one bad run nonetheless his jumping must improve no end,...a trip to 'specsavers' could do wonders.
Report impossible123 January 11, 2017 5:24 PM GMT
Bags Grove won handily today, a bit of form boost for Jenkins, I presume.
Report neill d January 11, 2017 5:55 PM GMT
8/11 in that field, the big punters in Hendersons knew well he wouldn't be winning. Wouldn't be surprised if he goes handy with him for the rest of the season and tries to get him back for next.
Report sc1883 January 13, 2017 4:26 PM GMT
Latest update courtesy of Mr Henderson's blog - "I have received oodles of tweets asking about JENKINS who fluffed his lines at Kempton on Boxing Day and it has come to light that he does have a problem which has come to light after his race. It’s mainly bruising really but there is also some fluid around the tendon sheath which we drained yesterday and it has helped. It’s very frustrating though as he missed a couple of pieces of work and we need to get going with him again. We are struggling, and how much the bruising is to do with his Kempton defeat, I don’t know, and it’s a setback we could have done without but we’re nearly there"

At least we have some sort of reason for his poor run now!
Report impossible123 January 13, 2017 5:18 PM GMT
'sc1883' many thanks for the update. Another nine weeks to the Supreme,...let's hope he turns up (fingers firmly crossed), if so, good chance.

Cheers SC. Gives a little hope to my book!

20/1 Sly (nrnb), will be much shorter if turning up.
Report PyrrhicVictory January 14, 2017 9:54 AM GMT
I'm mightily relieved to hear of this - thanks!

I only hope Hendo can get him ready in time - if he turns up 100% he'll run much better then his current price suggests!

Senewalk will be saved till next season.

I'd be amazed if they got Jenkins there, Nickys last blog report didn't given any confidence they could get him there in time.
Report sc1883 February 17, 2017 3:54 PM GMT
latest update from NJH doesn't sound that good - "I have to admit we are struggling with Jenkins. He is in work, yes, but it’s not work that is enough at this stage. He’ll gallop tomorrow and I’ll do as much as I dare to do but whether he’s going to make Cheltenham I have no idea as we are fighting against time. He’s fine and looks fantastic and is moving well – he’s got no injuries, but it’s just a bit of a struggle."
Report impossible123 February 17, 2017 4:19 PM GMT
No worries, Hendo is a trainer....what is a bit of struggle getting horse ready for Cheltenham (not Kelso)? I'm sure he'd had lots of experiences eg Sprinter and Simonsig.
Report duffy February 18, 2017 5:32 PM GMT
Definite worry if you're a supporter more like, he has had a lot of experience with Sprinter and Simonsig alright, and he is very careful and patient hence those two off for 1 year + and 2.5 years + respectively. Highly unlikely Jenkins makes it I'd have thought.
Report impossible123 February 22, 2017 6:51 PM GMT
He's out, Slybet refunded stake.
