brief write up ,a really hard race to decipher as the betting shows ,min a worthy fav and won well  in the gloom 1st time up , as usual a strong irish callenge with willie and gorden well represented one i8 like at a price is gordons battleoverdoyen, a good winner 1st time up over 20f at down royal ,next time up was in the race which min won in the fog  and gordon said he was never travelling so iam happy to run a line through that , he on the face of it has a lot to find with allaho on last seasons rsa but he travelled well for 3/4 of that race  but didnt get home imo  . back over the more suitable ryanaire trip will be much more to his liking ,due to run today but i think that has been called off ,anyway 33/1 is too big imo
i like a few cracks of the whip andwill be looking for another decent priced one to go with battloverdoyen in this ,more of that later  .
selection ryanaire chase BATTLEOVERDOYEN  33/1 EACH WAY ................opinions encouraged !

Ruby Walsh tipped Allaho for this on Thursday night, so that should your help your bet a lot.

Can't believe they didn't leave Frodon in at this stage.

Samcro won the JLT last season (unexpectedly). He'd do the same here again (unexpectedly). His run in the Savills Chase was too abysmal to be indicative of his Cheltenham target. But, he's fragile like Charcun Pour Soi. Next best could be Imperial Aura who was lauded by some "professional" tipsters after his recent win.

Agree on the willingness to have a go on something at a price. Personally think you could do a lot worse than Dashel Drasher at 33-1. Absolutely loved the way he went about it Saturday at Ascot, he jumps well, he’s proven at the track and he’s pretty versatile with the ground. in a race with a lot of questions marks, despite not having the talent of others, he has a lot less questions to answer to me

Dashel Drasher might be going to Ascot instead

Samcro. He won the JLT last season against the consensus. Here's hoping.

But, my head says Imperial Aura to atone for his mishap last time.

Paul Townend has sided with last year’s winner Min in the Ryanair Chase
Allaho, will be ridden by Rachael Blackmore

Samcro is running with Kennedy jocked up. I'm hoping for another miracle as last year in the JLT.

I'm with Samcro too, he came into last years festival after a similarly disappointing winter in Ireland, but back where he thrives with 2 previous festival wins on better ground he was supported and was a different horse through the race. This winter he's had two runs with the 2nd over 3 miles and easily excusable.

The race is a minefield in all honesty but he's been completely ignored, he's twice the price of Min who he beat last year and who himself has been supported off the back of creditable runs over 3 miles.

There's no reason not to expect a similarly improved performance from him in this race and with big enough question marks against a number if not all of those at shorter odds than him he seems the value to me and as people start to recall his previous festival exploits the money will come for him in the lead up to the race.

That's my line of thought too. He was not expected to win in the JLT last season. He's been backed into 8/1 from 19/1 in the last few days. The ground is more to his liking given the clement weather. It's an open race.

He likes Cheltenham. I just hope he's on his A-game again today.
