While Altior's destination is obvious, the only feasible race for Gilgamboa is the hunter chase. Billy's have the best prices on both, 1/2 and 8/1 respectively, yet I have just been to their local shop and been able to top up previous bets, this time on their "to win any race" market at 4/6 and 10/1. Crazy!

I get your drift. I think there could be a very, very slim chance Altior could go Champion Hurdle or Ryanair or Gold Cup; If so, he'll be more than 4/6 for any of them - that's my understanding. But, of the two 4/6 for Altior who is almost a certainty to run in the Champion Chase is good value considering he's only 4/9 for this race.

What the fack sort of drivel are you talking ??

Altior going for the Champion Hurdle, Ryanair or Gold Cup. FFS stepping up from 2m to 3m 2 1/2f, just randomly going back over hurdles or going for the bloody Ryanair.

My god.

Excited

Could just imagine Henderson (via Unibet on Tw@tter obvs) announcing on the Sunday prior to the festival that Brain Power was going to bring his A game to the Champion Chase and Altior would be diverted to the Ryanair.Whoops

Imp123 would lead the meltdown on here...

Well done, Govan - excellent spot irrespective of any outcome.

I believe Gilgamboa is injured and a doubt for the Festival.

To elaborate on that, just remembered it was a Mark Howard update...

Gilgamboa has been hit with a setback and it will be a race against time to get him fit for the spring festivals.

The penny has dropped with Hill's. Altior now 2/5.

Spot on Impossible123.

I’ve heard Altior could even skip Cheltenham for a crack at the Grand National before a tilt at the Greyhound Derby.

Should run Altior on the Tuesday in the Champion Hurdle and Friday in the Gold Cup. He'd be favourite for both.

Altior: Champion Hurdle (tues); Champion Chase (weds); Gold Cup (fri). A full house of victories in one Festival and one week.
