Monkfish was the first horse on the Willie Mullins team Patrick name-checked having schooled the novice early in the week.

"Paul rode him this morning and he was delighted with him[...] He's a horse that has improved, improved, improved.

"What I really like about him at Cheltenham was when it got tight down at the last and after the last he went through it. The penny is starting to drop, you need a horse that understands racing.

"He's 16.3, he's really filled into his frame Monkfish is as exciting a novice chaser as we have in the yard"

After finishing second on hurdling debut, this Roch Ricci owned gelding registered facile wide-margin successes in novice contests at Fairyhouse and Thurles.

Monkfish was then pitched into Grade 1 company and showed tremendous guts to land a thrilling renewal of the 3m Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

The six-year-old looked beaten after jumping the final flight but then rallied gamely in the closing stages under Paul Towned to deny the Paul Nolan-trained Latest Exhibition by a neck, with Gordon Elliott’s Fury Road a further nose behind in third.

Latest Exhibition has some top class form to his name and went into the contest on the back of a Grade 1 success, whilst Fury Road is very highly-regarded.

The fourth home Thyme Hill also had some rock solid form in the book, so it was a fine effort from Monkfish on just his third start over the obstacles in what looked a very strong renewal of the Albert Bartlett.

He is a big raw sort who still looks far from the finished article and whatever he achieved over hurdles was only going to be a bonus as he is built to come into his own when sent chasing.

That is the plan for next season and the 3m RSA Novices Chase, for which he is currently 10/1 second favourite with Coral, looks the obvious target.

However, if Monkfish doesn’t take to chasing as expected then connections have the option of the Stayers Hurdle for which he is a 33/1 with Paddy Power.
Speaking after the Albert Bartlett Mullins said : “Monkfish looks a real chaser. I don’t think the race went according to plan for Paul – he was just doing a little too much for him but he found himself there.

“The first time we ran him, we wondered if he would ever win a race. We were so disappointed – you would swear he was never on a racetrack, he was very green and immature.

“Monkfish is maturing all the time and Paul said that he felt there is still more to come – he said you could feel the power coming when he got after him. He is a huge, big horse but, if he has to come back and win a Stayers’ Hurdle, we won’t complain either.”

Report Paterson92 November 29, 2020 12:49 AM GMT
Now a best priced 9/2 for the RSA in March which may seem short but all things considered I think is about fair. Of course he’s still got to get there in one piece but that’s just par for the course with ante post betting.

Was having a look at the potential opposition to Monkfish earlier today. By the looks of things, the 3 horses who followed him home in the Albert Bartlett won’t be opposing him in the RSA - Fury Road and Thyme Hill remain over hurdles/being aimed towards the Stayers Hurdle and Latest Exhibition I would say is more likely to end up in the National Hunt Chase. Those four were 10 lengths clear of the nearest challenger.

In my opinion his biggest dangers could be horses who ran behind Envoi Allen in the Ballymore - The Big Breakaway, The Big Getaway and potentially Easywork. However, the only one you could be fairly certain would be heading to the RSA at this point is TBB.

Like most of Mullins horses, they normally only appear 2/3 times at most prior to Cheltenham and it’s safe to assume after running in a couple of small field novice chases between now and March, his price will continue to shorten. Mullins RSA horses in recent years:

2020 - Allaho (3 runs prior to Cheltenham) and Easy Game (3 runs prior to Cheltenham)
2019 - No runner
2018 - Al Boum Photo (3 runs prior to Cheltenham) and Bonbon Au Miel (2 runs prior to Cheltenham)
2017 - Bellshill (3 runs prior to Cheltenham)

I was very impressed with the way he travelled throughout today’s race and his jumping was more than satisfactory. Given that he is trained by Mullins, you would expect him to improve from that and be primed for the big day in March.

Yeh i see what you say Harry.

Thing is these are the 3 winners of the 3 novice hurdles at Cheltenham, proven the best in their respective divisions.
They have now all jumped really well over the fences, which would have really been the only doubt.
So whats a bookie supposed to do once they have removed that doubt?

Maybe they could have been too short before their chase debuts?
Report duffy November 29, 2020 1:29 PM GMT
None of them have removed the doubt about whether they can jump under pressure, at a quicker pace, on better ground, all the really important stuff but we over react and they end up priced up as if they've achieved these fundamentals.

It's funny because we read all the time about hurdling and fencing being completely different things but really we are guided religiously to what happened hurdling and judge what we see with that bias.

As an example, the other day Tamaroc Du Mathan put in a performance first time over fences which was right up there in style points for me, but because he wasn't a progressive novice last year and consequently wasn't a player in the top novice races, he gets little credit and is still a 33's shot for the Arkle.

I think something like him at that kind of price with the prospect of further progression is what interests me at this point.

I just saying that the horses were priced up on their hurdle form before they had been seen over fences.
They then proved they can jump a fence well, giving the bookies more info, and no surprise to me that a bookie then acts on that info.

I was joking there, just pointing out that more will run from EA than from Shishkin IMO, no novices handicap chase to ide away in either this year.

EA was impressive there, they taught him something, it wasn't like a debut going through the motions, they let something come to him to race against, when he pressed the button, Walsh was right, it was like a car.

I have been saying for years that anyone who, in November, can nominate 10 horses that will run at Cheltenham in March and the race they will be in can have even money if they get 5 right. That is why backing anything at less than 10/1 before Xmas is a very dangerous game. This year for a change I have managed to lay off several of my ante posts at much lower odds. I have free bets on Politologue, Allmankind and Monmiral and could now do the same for Bravemansgame. Thyme Hill is still about the same as when I backed it while Notebook (CC) and Dusart are a bit longer. My only write off is Eldorado Allen but he could yet turn up in the Arkle. I am agonising about Bravemansgame today as I have a 10/1 free bet if I lay off now but I think he is still value at 6.8. The biggest doubt is will he run? As for backing a horse that has not jumped a fence for the 2022 Gold Cup, no way.

" It was a very good performance from a horse having his second run over fences, to take on more experienced rivals at a Grade One track. I was very pleased with that,. It didn’t seem to be a problem — even when he was meeting one wrong, he shortened himself. He seems to be a natural over fences. There was a lot of pressure on him going to the last, with Latest Exhibition -who has a bit more experience than him. He pulled himself together, fought his way over it, and he just had a little bit in reserve. I’d imagine we’ll look at the Flogas Chase. We’ll focus on that first — and if all goes well we can look at Cheltenham after that. " W P Mullins

Willie Mullins compared Monkfish to his star chasers Florida Pearl and Al Boum Photo at Leopardstown today as the Champion Trainer's Rich Ricci owned gelding maintained his unbeaten chase record with a taking display in the Grade 1 Flogas Novice Chase.

Ridden by Paul Townend, the old-fashioned-looking-chaser son of Stowaway made all, jumped well and handed Latest Exhibition a third career beating, proving 11 lengths too strong in another show-no-mercy display.

Afterwards Mullins, with his third winner of the day, stated “what can you say after a performance like that — Paul thought he should be in the next race (the Irish Gold Cup)!

“I was more impressed with him today than any day. It looks like he’s getting better with each run. The ease of it was impressive.

“This fella has the same potential (as Florida Pearl and Al Boum Photo); everything is so effortless, and he has huge scope no matter how he meets a fence.”

Winning jockey Townend added “all I had to do was sit there and steer him to be honest. He locked eyes on every fence and took them on, the loose horse took me on and set him alight a little bit but I wasn't worried because he is just a very good horse.

“The feel he gives me, he isn't a plodder and has a little bit of class.”
