while Willie Mullins seems to have a stranglehold on this race apart from perhaps Comfort Zone , the Adonis Hurdle on Saturday is the last recognised trial and Scriptwriter, who I believe is comfortably the best GB trained entry is a possible runner. Meanwhile today at Market Rasen, Active Duty seeks to advertise the form of both Comfort Zone and Scriptwriter.

Adonis hurdle not the triumph

Sorry was looking at main title. Zarkandar, Tritonic and Knight Salute did ok after winning the Adonis.

Kasbah Bliss was a good horse in 2006 as well.

Those three did ok but not really much more.

Kasbah was second in Stayers to Inglis Drever and was odds on when Big Bucks won his first one. Did my cobblers on him that day Laugh

Don’t know if your were involved at seven barrows back in 2010 hibore but I remember been at Wolverhampton midweek must have been this week when there was a very strong message for soldatino for the triumph at the time Ladbroke had the racecourse betting office and you could get plenty on ,they were 10/1 so it was with great interest I watched the Adonis a few days later.

Kasbah finished in front of **** at longchamp I remember seeing his uk debut at haydock in the days when haydock staged good national hunt racing

No, only the last few years with Nicky. There seemed to be many more whispers around racetracks 10-20 years ago about horses from different yards on both flat and jumps. Very few these days unless you are connected with stable.

Yes I think that a fair comment hibore one of the reasons maybe the fact it’s so difficult to get on people are giving up trying
Report jimnast February 21, 2023 10:47 AM GMT
The kasbah race at haydock wasn’t his uk debut it as the race he beat lough derg Wichita linesman and chief Dan George
Report Hibore February 21, 2023 10:55 AM GMT
Just looked and Kasbah was 171 hurdles and 115 flat at his best. Won Group 1 Cadran as well. Must be up there with best dual purpose horse in last 30 years. Won over £1 million as well.

Yes he probably would be sadly not many good ones come from the flat nowadays aw racing was the start of it .

Moonax the st leger winner had a go but wasn’t up to much

And Joseph  took Nusret out of the Triumph and left it in FW is in opposition , however all Nusret's top runs have been left handed . I have the 25s for the FW .

Active Duty very disappointing and I don't think we saw a Triumph candidate today.

Blood Destiny is strong in the market.

He is fav on here now, looking bad for Lossiemouth.

looks like Townsend will pick Blood destiny  thats is why the change in prices.

hope you are well.

A strange decision given that is widely believed here that Blood Destiny is a good horse, but not as good as Lossiemouth. Makes me wonder if all is OK with Lossiemouth

I hear it was Mullins assistant trainer David Casey who said that he fancied Blood Destiny and he would be very surprised if Townsend doesn't ride him
Report strontium March 3, 2023 10:14 AM GMT
I wonder if the DRF run took the shine off? Lossiemouth surely had problems in running, but she was held at the line. Meanwhile, we don't know if Blood Destiny will act on good ground. I wonder if Gala Marceau has been given enough credit for her DRF win? She could still be improving, might be Blackmore's ride, and could therefore represent a bit of value.

With Sir Gino at the helm of the betting at 6/4 post his scintillating triumph at the weekend Mr Mullins is unleashing his contenders in the DRF this weekend. His main ones are Storm Heart (13/8); Salvator Mundi (4/1); Bunting and Kargese (both 7/1); Highwind (10/1). Elliot has Kala Conti (6/1) and Joseph Intellotto (10/1).

Be interesting to see Peking Opera in the first on sat at Sandown .
Report impossible123 January 31, 2024 5:29 PM GMT
Peking Opera has good Flat form. My immediate £64k question is why AOB sold the horse instead of handling it to Joseph? I hope Peking Opera is a good recruit to sticks.

Yes I wouldnt disagree , especially for only 100 grand , obviously gelded now but even so , conformation /temperament/something physical anyway either Garry can sort and has a bargain or done a rick .

A friend's French bulldog will be gelded on monday. The cost is £300 for the energetic blighter.

Any serious opponent to Sir Gino post DRF? I think the Mullins charges will play switcheroo for places.

How do you know how deep the leopardstown race was,is that all you can come up with waxing about a fav you have at Cheltenham

Happy to have a little 33s Peking after that performance and GM's comments post race , may be money down the drain but I actually liked the horse's manner of doing things and  Kempton on the 24th will tell us more . Ryan said he was ' mad ' buying it , so I hope that was a discounted price .
Report brandyontherocks February 4, 2024 2:10 PM GMT
Kargese was very keen on debut, refusing to settle for D. Mullins.
She made rapid progress on the home turn and paid for her
early excursions and just failed to pick up the winner.

Yesterday she settled much better, but still enthusiastic, and ran out a ready winner.

If she takes another step forward, and in receipt of her mares
allowance, she must be a danger to the very impressive
Sir Gino.
Report impossible123 March 14, 2024 8:37 AM GMT
I'd be amazed if Sir Gino is not withdrawn today given the way his other  charges have under-performed over the last couple days at the Festival; Shishkin (scoped badly) and Jonbon (no reason) were withdrawn yesterday.

Same story, different day!
