If he jumps like Wayward Lad or Silver Buck he'll be fav for the Blue Riband. His supporters could get their 1st opportunity in public to examine his jumping in the Savills Chase on 28th Dec; 3/1 against Minella Indo (2/1 fav) is out standing value, if he shows.

Presenting Percy (9/2), Delta Work (5/1) and Kemboy (7/1) - the latter 2 (CD) - are very much in the running if Champ bombs, I believe.

If he does have to run him it does make sense. The criticism was running over 3 miles on soft so close to Cheltenham....well this is 2 miles, held up off the or lose he gets a serious piece of work into him. He also can be lethargic so will spice him up and give his jumping a good test.

More I think of it it’s the better option of the two.

Another special placement of Hendo ie placing a horse not to win, but for a workout - this is even more bizarre than Santini in the King George. I hope no one backs him in the Game Spirit. Maybe a betting without Champ.

What a ludicrous game plan? Why not just give Champ another private or racecourse gallop rather than taking the mickey out of punters? There's so much a punter can take from Hendo's increasingly bizarre running plan with 2 of his key charges.

What's next? A run in the Stayers if he shows inadequate jumping given the quicker pace? I thought the game plan with Presenting Percy was far fetched, Champ's triumphs it multiple times!

Champ ran perfectly well behind Vinndication in a novice hurdle there so the track can't be an issue.

Henderson has 5 of the 18 entries but no Champ.

Clan Des Obeaux and Lost In Translation both have entries presumably as contingency in case the Denman Chase was off.

I would be a little concerned with the jump at the last, he was bustled up into that and put
a short stride in , instead of perhaps going for the big one. He was under pressure there to go for it and he didn't deliver.

He was on the bridle as hendo said most of the way, ballooned a few (fresh horse) , jumped left at the 3rd or 4th last. All in all pretty good round.

Unless its a slog I agree with Impossible previously , he has to improve on his jumping.

I don’t think his jumping will be good enough in the blue riband. He is a lovely horse though. Maybe next year. I am green anyway on him, but I counted at least four novicesy mistakes. That equates to about five or six lengths lost. I also do not think he likes the new course.

If he'd make the pace or up with the pace over 2m and jumped the way he did yesterday I'd have thought over 3m 2f+ would be less taxing. And, even if he was a couple of lengths behind ABP after jumping the last I'd take that now because he'd be the strongest finisher of all except Santini.

I hope I am wrong but I think the three fences that willl cause Champ problems will be the last, the last open ditch and the dreaded fourth last. Especially if the site of the fourth last is closer to the bend.  If NdB starts to go for it down the hill, he will not get back up it. I think he could be in a spot of bother on yesterday’s evidence. He was not clean at his fences. He didn’t get a ten out of ten for me for his jumping. If I was on Champ, I would just let him get him a rhythm and then let him freewheel down the hill. Then even if at the home turn I would not worry being ten lengths down. but NdB I do not think will out do Kennedy, Townend, Walsh, or a good few others in a finish as he seems to get his hands in a mess at key moments. I still have him six pounds below on my handicap to Al Boum Photo. But in saying that, I am green, so if he wins it’s a few quid.

I'm much less worried after yesterday. I was very concerned about his jumping last season, and his long holiday since. The longer Gold Cup trip will mean a slower pace than yesterday as I do not believe Native River or Frodon will dare tear off infront like a pair of whippets.

All sweet with me, if he stays sound. I'm not even perturbed by ABP on a line with Santini; Hendo 1st and 2nd (hopefully), but either will do if 1st to the finishing line.

Duffy is right though. Champ has less form to go on than any GC runner for a very long time. One chase run over 3 miles which he won from an impossible position 2 out. Otherwise he is a 2-2.7 mile chaser-or is he? The defeat of Dashel Drasher over 2m 6f looks OK now.

Obviously, as Champ's outing this season has been curtailed by a wind op and going. But, one cannot say every one was not surprised to see him win the RSA from where he was, and on that jumping; the two horses that ABP beat for the title were mediocre or below average.

ABP is the reigning champ, but I think Champ is the one to beat on sunday's showing. I do not think an extra 2f will hinder him on his RSA run.

If he is going off anything like that price, I will have a lumpy place lay.

What I don't get, impossible123, is that ABP's 2 Gold cups are a fluke; the (arguably) best staying chase performance this season - by A Plus Tard - is a fluke; the King George winner fluked that race; and yet the winner of a very ordinary looking RSA, who has only managed to make the racecourse once since, is the second coming?

To put it another way: the 1st, 2nd and 4th in the Ryanair have since won Grade 1 chases, and the 3rd came 4th in the King George.  How many Grade 1 winners have come from the RSA?

It is not  that Champ will turn out to be better than he has shown, but there is no way he is a good value bet at current prices, and his price compared with that of ABP and APT is a joke.

The 2 wins of ABP is no fluke, but nothing better than mediocre against Santini (disrupted prep) and Anibale Fly who were 2nd; King George's winner Frodon was definitely gifted the race; APT probably improved up in trip.

Has ABP improved massively since running in The RSA? I think not given the 2 horses he beat in the Gold Cup. Champ may only have run once (no fault of his) this season but it was a jolly fine run against seasoned 2m chasers. He's also a RSA winner something ABP could not achieved.

I think 6/1 is a decent price.

Personally, the two telling indicators of how good ABP is his running in the RSA where he was held, and eventually fell in the race won by Presenting Percy with Monalee 2nd. ABP (after winning the Gold Cup) was 2nd to Kemboy (had his ground) at Punchestown; Kemboy is a good horse away from Cheltenham esp with ground to suit. 

On 2 occasions ABP in a competitive field - I disregarded Santini (disrupted prep/probably mediocre) - and Anibale Fly (more mediocre than Santini) had every chance; fell in one (RSA) and finished 2nd (to Kemboy) in the other.

Nevertheless, ABP managed to win 2 Gold Cup. Fortuitous or merit? Let's hope ABP can retain his crown come March against Champ, APT and Royal Pagaille - the new adversaries with yet unquantified potentials.

It is very dangerous to equate this seasons form with last season. Take Lostintranslation. If you take his recent form literally then his third place in the GC shows how terrible a race it was but do you seriously think that he has run to that form since? The same could be said of Santini but less so. History shows that most good horses are only at their peak for one season, 2 at the most. those who hold their form and even improve over several years like Frodon are rare. There is also the going issue. 90% of the Group races in Ireland have been run on heavy or very soft. It could easily be close to good/firm on Gold Cup day.
Report The Sawyer February 26, 2021 12:24 PM GMT

Last years Gold Cup was probably the most competitive field for as far back as I can remember - all of them were rated 160+ and all finished within 20L of the winner (and the faller would've likely finished nearer first than last). The fact that it was slowly is part of racing and doesn't detract from the winner.

Measuring the quality of the race (and calling it mediocre) by what finishes 2nd shows your actual appreciation of the sport. The Gold Cup is the ultimate staying chase of the season and is rarely won by speedsters. Anibale Fly finished 4th and 5th in 2 Grand Nationals and 2nd and 3rd (to Native River who presumably is now also bracketed with your mediocre tag)

Take a look back at the horses that finished 2nd to Best Mate and the quality of those line ups; many of those would have been proud to achieve what Santini has done to date and Anibale Fly's final race record

Last year's Gold Cup was most competitive indeed, and probably mediocre too; ABP beat Santini because he'd pace to get into a challenging position when needed - Santini could not.

The duel between Native River and Might Bite (RSA winner/probable Kauto Star Chase too if not falling at the last 18l infront) - the rest nowhere - from the off was top notch. Thus unfair to tag Native River (NR) as "mediocre" when behind ABP - NR was not well in that race; Lostintranslation clearly did not get up the Cheltenham hill despite going very well 1 out.

I believe it will not take much from one of the new challengers eg Champ/APT and RP to usurp ABP, possibly Santini too next month.
