Nice to get this forum going again and feels like Cheltenham horses are appearing every week now Happy

Just had a few quid on Next Destination at 16/1 for this race.

Was tempted by the 10/1 any race, but being greedy and going for the extra few points. Supreme is a definite no-no, so looks like the decision will be between the Ballymore and the Albert Bartlett. Considering how late he stayed on in the Bumper, and the fact he is a 3 mile point winner, Im more than hopeful this will be the race. Will obviously depend on what else they have as usual.

Mullins said on Sunday: "He won well at Naas and looks a stayer. I'm not sure where he'll run next but he could go to Navan for a Grade 2 two-and-a-half-mile novice on December 17."

That Navan novice hurdle has been a happy hunting ground for Mullins: he has taken the spoils with Mikael D'Haguenet, Boston Bob, Pont Alexandre, Briar Hill and Bellshill in the last decade.

Showed a remarkable engine to power away at the weekend after kicking the last clean over. Nothing seems to happen too quickly with him. Big bonus that he has some experience of the Festival already.

Next Destination into 4/1 and shortest price of anyone for this race with Paddy and out to 8/1 for the Ballymore with them.

A noticeable move imo.
Report Can't Catch Me December 18, 2017 11:15 AM GMT
Much will depend on what else Willie has as usual, and he will split them all up to give them a good chance in each race. I dont think the picture will become clear until much nearer the Festival.

But Cracking Smart was fav for the AB before yesterday and I thought he ran a good race. ND beat him out of sight over 2m4f on heavy ground at Navan, which is comparable to 3m on spring ground in my view. He would have this race at his mercy and as a 3m point winner by Flemensfirth, who can switch off as well as he does, I think he would have this race at his mercy. They will have to be very brave to not go for it imo.

Samcro, If the Cap Fits, On The Blind Side, Getabird all look Ballymore bound... and that looks the hottest novice race of the week to me.

I also think Getabird and ND are Willie's two best novices and will be split up.

Just watched his win yesterday and the AB looks the more suitable race assuming normal ground conditions at Cheltenham.
It's just such a hard race to weigh up, even on the day - a mixture of favourites and real long shots have won it and it's the first time the young horses have had to run a really hard 3m with a big field and strong pace as oppossed to the usual small field slowly run graded races leading up the Festival.

Good shout @ 16/1 either way CCM.

Report firstimevisor December 18, 2017 2:37 PM GMT
That's a cracking bet CCM and I would love to see you land it and the very best of luck.

I really fear for the ND part of the bet as I cannot see him going the Bartlett route.That race has to be the toughest of all at the festival given that its for novices. The typical profile of AB winners is all against Next Destination. Mullins eventually cracked it this year after having quite a few inexperienced hot pots turned over in previous years. Penhill was a battle hardened horse who had run in 6 hurdles and before that was a decent,seasoned flat handicapper. Unowhatimeanharry had run about 20 times and had won some good handicaps that season.Past winners such as Berties Dream,At Fishers Cross and Martello Tower were all tough battle-hardened campaigners when they won.

WPM has a different perspective on the race now and I couldn't see him running ND here on the back of maybe 3 hurdle runs.He's very much a creature of habit when he finds a winning formula. He'll have other options for this race which fit the profile much better. Ben Button is the one I'm drawn to. He's run 12 times over hurdles and since joining WPM he's improved from a mark of 109 to 136. His current mark at this time of year puts him right in the picture and I would imagine there's plenty more improvement to come.
Report Can't Catch Me December 18, 2017 3:12 PM GMT
Cheers ftv.

I must admit I would have agreed with you 24 hours ago! And I accept all those points are more than valid. But PP have a very impressive history of getting it right with Mullins runners and their targets, and their change of heart with his odds today is really striking for me... and they have given me my confidence back!

Obviously much can change, but as I posted, I am convinced Getabird and ND are his two best novices, and they will be split up at all costs. If Reel Steel and Sayar dont prove up to the Supreme, then there is every chance Getabird will be dropped back in trip for that race, and ND will go for the Ballymore, but if they do prove up to making the Supreme, then I will be more than happy tbh.

And to be honest, more than all of that, I just think he's the perfect type for the race. He's just stuffed the horse that was antepost fav for the race, so why complicate matters and move him to the hottest novice race of the week instead?

Of the other Mullins runners, Brahma Bull would be the other one I like for the race. Inexperienced as well, but a 6yo, and looks perfect for the trip.

I like trends I must admit, and these are what I have in my notes from the excellent Gaulstats for the race:


Race Distance - about 3 miles. Going 12 years. Winner to be 6 or 7 years old. Has won hurdle race over at least 2m 4f. May not have already run over 3 miles. Al least 3 runs over hurdles. 1st or 2nd last time out in Graded Class. Hasn't come from the Flat. Irish trained have recently punched above their numbers. Course winner or Graded course form if given the chance. Irish Bred. Any price. Not beaten favourite last time unless placed in Graded shorter trip.

ND fares very well there... The only negative is that I have also made a note that WPM has a dreadful record in the race. But maybe he's determined to put that right?! I dont think he is the type of trainer to dodge the race because it hasn't gone well for him previously. Last year might have turned the corner for him!

Hi. C.C.M, he is just not in the same league as Samcro.... if Samcro goes injury free then he will take some beating.... But I agree that`s only one horse in a race and things happen in races that we all know that can go wrong.

If he avoids Samcro he has a good chance in A.B but I would rather OTBS of those two.....

Betting for Naas suggests Samcro giving Next Destination a swerve
Report impossible123 January 7, 2018 3:28 PM GMT
Next Destination won workmanlike at Naas earlier today. And despite his trainer Mullins nominating the Ballymore/Neptune as his likely Cheltenham target - he's also entered here - I think he'll more likely end up running here instead. Then again, previous winners of Mullins' eg McKinley and Bellshill had run in a handicap race and the Supreme at the Festival respectively.
Report Can't Catch Me January 7, 2018 4:35 PM GMT
I can see them trying Getabird over 3m then devising. But as we stand I'd fancy Ruby's rides are likely to be Sharjah in the Supreme, ND in the Ballymore and Getabird in the AB assuming he looks ok at the trip. If not they could switch the last two around.

I do think Cracking Smart looks perfect for this race. Backed him after ND beat him last time and he got pushed out to 20's but have topped up at 10's today.

Report impossible123 January 8, 2018 10:35 AM GMT
I think the Supreme is unlikely for Next Destination given Sharjah whose owner is the principal patron at Closutton stable. Similarly, despite what his trainer Mr Mullins had alluded to the Neptune is also less likely, in my opinion, given the presence of Samcro who, I believe, would eat him for breakfast, if so. But, he'd have more of a winning chance in the Albert Bartlett, I think.

You're saying he won't run in the Supreme because RR owns Sharjah? Complete nonsense.

Next Destination is now 10/1 with Skybet.

Getting back to the Albert Bartlett, Cracking Smart is going to take a lot of beating and can see him powering up the hill.  8/1 is still a fair price when you look at the potential opposition.  Next D. OTBS and Samcro unlikely to turn up on what's been said. So it's 20/1 bar Cracking Smart. Seems a good EW bet still.

Of the others 50/1 looks too big for Jetz.  Harrington has said he stays for ever and don't think he wanted to lead yesterday.  Stayed on really well previous race at Navan behind ND and Cracking Smart.  Can't see any other race for him so I've had a tickle at 50/1. Probably finish behind CS but I doubt he will be far behind looking at the Navan race.

Not a race I like to back a short one in so I've backed Jetz @ 50/1 e/w on the Sportsbook.

Been behind Samcro and then Next Destination / Cracking Smart on his last few runs but the step up to 3m at Cheltenham will help. He is related to Jetson who twice ran really well in the Pertemps final so hopefully the track and ground will suit and Jessica Harrington is a dab hand at priming them for the big day.

Henderson on Santini: "He'll get an entry in the Albert Bartlett, and if you're not in you can't run, but unless we change our minds I think we are all leaning against it at the moment. I think he wants another year and come back as a chaser."
Report p_r_e_m_i_e_r__f_a_n_t_a_s_y January 28, 2018 9:47 AM GMT
Wow absolutely shocked by Henderson's quote and it makes zero sense to me, I will probably be ate for this post and asked along the lines of "how many festival winners have I trained?" or told I am pocket talking as I have quite a few quid on him for the festival but here goes.

The race Santini won yesterday is the best Albert Bartlett trial won in the past by Wichita Lineman, At Fishers Cross and Henderson's own Bobs Worth (went on to then win an RSA and Gold Cup). The horse clearly wants a step up to 3 miles as he has been doing his best work at the end and hit the line hard in both his races at Newbury and Cheltenham. In my opinion he would be the one they all have to beat stepping up to the 3 miles and the form of his debut win over Chef Des Obeaux could hardly have been franked more by the second.

Granted I do agree he looks to have everything you want to make a top class chaser and the way he jumps hurdles suggests he will take to fences it puzzles me why you cannot take this years festival in along the way, it didn't harm Bobs Worth or loads of other horses for other stables down the years.

And now to the biggest mystery of all to me, if the plan was always to skip the spring festivals and put him away for the year they why in gods name did they run him yesterday on bottomless ground when they have already admitted they did not think he would like the ground, well that makes me scratch my head in bewilderment.

If he doesn't race again this year it will be a pity (for me especially) but he is going to be one really exciting novice chaser to look forward to new season.

Yeah, when Hendo really likes one for the future he will prefer to miss the festival.
I remember that he didn't want to run Sprinter in the Supreme, knowing that he was one for the future and that he was just a shell of what he would become. He may well feel the same about Santini, who is a tall type with a fair bit of filling out to do. It's exciting to think that there's one that highly thought of at Seven Barrows.
As others have pointed out, Hendo isn't short of ammo in the novice hurdles anyway. I've backed Mr Whipped for both AB and Ballymore, with bigger prices the latter - so would prefer he went there, but will be happy with a run either way.

I have seen all the Henderson horses run at Newbury in the flesh and the one that impressed me most was Mr Whipped, if you take away his below par run lto he would be single figures and he wouldnt be the Henderson horse that ran below form a month before the festival.

Go with the Flow didnt get home in the Ballymore , but was getting 7lb from Paisley Park LTO and the latter should be suited by the extra trip , though it needs to jump .

I agree with Mr. Whipped, really impressed with him at Newbury and at Warwick very smooth classy traveler, doesn't do a lot in front a slight concern, deffo overpriced.

WD Bud - bet that came as a nice surprise.

Thanks uncle, yeh it was a surprise,although i had not written the bet off,cos after his run at Cheltenham in soft ground when he finished really well, i was hopeful he would relish conditions.
