Making my first move in the antepost market this season and have backed this beast at 33/1 and 25/1 for the Supreme. I was really taken with him yesterday.

Lovely, big scopey type, who clearly has the natural speed of a flat bred, but looks like he has plenty of stamina as well. Although he fiddled a couple yesterday, I thought he was clever at them, and it was largely because they were going too slow. The faster they went, the better he hurdled. Looks tailor made for the break neck speed of the Supreme to my eyes.

The debut form of his first hurdles run behind Ex Patriot looked pretty decent after the latter's run in the Triumph, especially considering Mengli Khan was giving him 10lb that day. Looks to have really grown and matured since then, and will be interesting to see how Stratum does for the form going forward.

Have a slight niggle he might be at his best on genuine soft ground, but its normally good to soft on day one so hoping that wont affect him too much.

Obviously its a huge worry that ex flat horses have such a terrible record in this race, but he looks all over a NH type to my eyes. Quite excited by this fella! Next stop the Deloitte.

Both still big odds for Supreme for those looking at the same angle in the race.
Report Can't Catch Me November 14, 2017 12:07 PM GMT
Yes I did consider Samcro bluebird, but I think Gigg are more likely to run each horse in the race they think is the best option, rather than split them up to give themselves more potential winners, like Rich Ricci and others might.

They have so many horses, chances are they will have a couple in each race anyway.

But if this was what they decided to do, I personally think Samcro could step up to the Neptune no problem, and GE has said a couple of times it wouldn't inconvenience him. He has also said he is a Chaser and they will mind him, so I suppose there is always a slim chance he doesnt go. Whereas he was quite definitive on Sunday when he said Mengli Khan is a 2 miler.

Mengli Khan looked pretty good yesterday again and looks a worthy Fav for the Supreme. However, what did everyone think about the 2nd Early Doors. The mistake 2 out was really telling IMO and he may have gone close/maybe not but for the mistake. The first 2 were miles clear and I'm sitting pretty on MK but I've had to take some 33/1 on Early Doors as that was only his 3rd hurdle and 5th race in total. Looks sure to improve further.
Report Can't Catch Me December 4, 2017 3:36 PM GMT
Very pleased with that performance and the front two were absolutely miles clear, which is always a good sign. Top priced 7/1 for the race now. It does look like being a bit of a weak year to me and still think he's excellent price. Especially compared to the daft price of Samcro.

I wasnt overly impressed until after the last, but once again he just powered away. I really think the Supreme should be perfect for him, and was pleased to hear GE say he thinks he will be better on better ground, as thats my big worry.

Totally agree shockster. I was really impressed with Early Doors. Have had a small saver on too. First run against a race fit rival and his form has a pretty solid look about it. You'd expect him to be a lot closer next time, closer than the odds suggest anyway.

One of my other big fancies is Hollowgraphic for the Bumper. There was nothing between him and Early Doors in the Punch bumper last season and Patrick has given him a big shout and said he was a big baby then and they are keeping him for Bumpers again this year. Think their is still some 25/1 about. The form of that race is working out nicely.

I just don`t see it Harry, yes he has won well so far but Cheltenham will be different and I feel the climb to the line will be too much after running the previous 1m6f at a very strong gallop, the quirk he has could be the battle to the line. And regards to be better on good ground I don`t see that either he should be o.k on both but I don`t believe he will be a better horse because of better ground.

Opinions aren`t they just the best.

Nice write up form Lydia Hislop, in her excellent Road To Cheltenham series

Novice hurdlers

In a similar vein to Presenting Percy, I think Mengli Khan’s Grade One Royal Bond success was initially taken for granted somewhat. Unlike the odds for that chaser, his have not further constricted in recent days.

This was a deep novices’ event run at a good pace and the winner accounted for all rivals by upwards of five-and-a-half lengths in the fastest time of the day. His performance also withstood sectional deconstruction. In short, this was form smart enough to hit the frame in most Supremes.

Mengli Khan isn’t your archetypal Gigginstown recruit, having been a 96-rated handicapper who stayed at least 11 furlongs on the Flat for Hugo Palmer in his three-year-old days last season. Yet despite this background, he has grown to have the scope even for chasing in future.

Perhaps because stable companion Samcro has sucked out all available heat and noise from the novice-hurdling scene, Mengli Khan is still on offer at 15/2 with Betfair or 7/1 more widely for the Sky Bet Supreme. Let’s take that. I doubt many – if any – will be able to match the level of form he already boasts come March. He is clearly very effective on soft ground but sounder stuff wouldn’t phase him either.

Although the Royal Bond hasn’t had an impact on the Festival in the past two years, Nichols Canyon won the race in 2014 and prior to that the names of Jezki, Dunguib, Hurricane Fly, Newmill, Hardy Eustace, Like-A-Butterfly, Moscow Flyer and Istabraq have all adorned its roll of honour. In short, it tends to be a good source of class acts.

This year’s renewal looked strong and runner-up Early Doors is also a talented animal. He would have been much closer bar for landing in a heap at the penultimate flight but he gave stolid chase to the winner and pulled 15 lengths clear of his nearest pursuer. He’s progressive and shouldn’t be overlooked just because the winner brushed him aside here.

Not sure the Cheltenham Hill will be up his alley - but a back to lay might be one route to go, though whatever Ruby chooses (if he is fit) will be the one to go for.

I backed Debuchet before his debut and will admit rose-tinted optimism but do think he shouldn't be given up on. He's the classiest bumper horse of the lot and had missed work in the build up to Boxing Day, he possibly did too much in front and made a mistake at a crucial time 3 out. I think/hope he'll improve a lot for that and still be a key player in the Supreme, the 33/1 post race seems an overreaction to me.

You've got Next Destination in the mix as well, albeit different ownership.

Could Sharjah be aimed at the County instead maybe? Mullins has a good record in the race.

Difficult to know how it would be handicapped, would definitely have finished first or second and looked like the most likely winner when falling LTO.

Instead has an F in his form. I'm not an expert in how it works and so don't know how much the handicapper will take it into account?

If not, essentially he'd be an unpenalised G1 winner. If yes, top weight.

Mullins will probably have 3 or 4 runners in both the Supreme and Ballymore.

The point is, these horses are just as effective at several distances so we don't know where they will or should turn up. If there was a month between the Supreme and Neptune then all the best horses would run in both,and probably win both, but being just one day between them means they can only run in one or the other.

Faugheen won the Neptune on the back of a 3 mile heavy ground Grade 3 win, and after that was dropped down in trip.
Yorkhill won the Neptune(Mullins didn't train the hot pot) on the back of a 2 mile Grade 1 win.He is also going back to 2 miles

We know Getabird is effective over 2 miles but we also know he has the stamina for much further as he started off by winning a 3 mile point to point.
So nobody should be surprised who runs where because they don't have just one specific trip.

If so, as comprehensively as Getabird? I doubt that though.

I think Getabird is the horse to beat in the Supreme and he'd not be a walkover in the Ballymore either even if Samcro runs. But I think Mullins will choose the Supreme for him, and Walsh will ride similarly Footpad in the Arkle, I believe.

I'm hoping Early Doors runs in the Deloitte to see what he's made of?  Think his 2nd to Mengli Khan in the Royal Bond was a really good run on only his 3rd start over hurdles.  Miles back to the 3rd and he made a real mess of 2 out and MK may have taken his ground going to the last.  He's still 33/1 nrnb for the Supreme and I don't think improvement is out of the question having only had 3 hurdle races.  The Royal Bond finish is worth taking another look at.
