It would be a bonkers decision to run in either.

Market today suggests Stayers, sadly, as I've traded him for the Gold Cup.

Bailey plans to make a late call on whether to allow Vinndication to join stablemate Younevercall in the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle, or shoot for glory in the Gold Cup.

Vinndication has not been seen in competitive action since unseating his rider in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury in November.

“If we were to run Vinndication in the Stayers’, David Bass would ride – so therefore when we were working the horses this morning, it was important Ciaran Gethings had the chance to sit on Younevercall (with a view to riding at Cheltenham),” said Bailey.

“I’m sitting on the fence at this moment in time with Vinndication. It will probably be the end of next week before we make a decision – as close as possible (to the meeting).

“He’s been schooling over fences and hurdles, and I really want to see where I am.

“My biggest problem with him is the last time he ran was at Newbury, and he unseated. Until he parted company with his jockey, he was jumping brilliantly and I need to have it in my own mind that he can do that again (to run in the Gold Cup).

“It’s a difficult one for everybody. I don’t want to say one way or t’other, and then change my mind."

Just 'lay' this beast for pittance. Can a horse that's been running over larger obstacles be effective in the Stayers?

For a start Vinndication is no Big Bucks. Anyway, Big Bucks had had many hurdle races after a short spell over fences before contesting this race 1st time.

His Stayers win was his 3rd hurdle start.

After a full novice chase campaign including running at both spring festivals and the following seasons Hennessy.

Big Bucks had many hurdle races in France whereas Vinnidication only had fences this season, I think. I firmly believe Thistlecrack would have won at least another, if he'd remained over hurdles.

I'd be very surprised if Vinndication ran into a place on thursday.

for what its worth impossible  i dont think vindication will win but it is a risky lay at the price imo .
