Having a friendly argument with a mate. He says it will be the biggest drifter of the Festival (from current prices) and reckons you'll be able to get 9/2 or better. On the downgrade, will be looked after in last race, major punters won't go near her etc etc.

I think she'll go off at 3/1 or lower. Favourite of the casual punters (and that's a lot of tenners), they won't run her unless she's fit and well, still a lot of ability anyway.

For the purposes of this argument, Marie's Rock will run in the race. (Looks like she will anyway and I think she'll win).

What do you think Honeysuckle's SP will be?

That is a terrific question. I'm going to go for 6/4. She's the two time champion hurdler, running over what may be her better trip. Last time out, she was only beaten 5 l by the clear second favorite for the Champion Hurdle. She's clear top on ratings (OR and RPR). I think some big money may come for her close to the race, especially if State Man gets close to Consitution Hill.

I think 4's, Marie's Rock ,Brandy Love and Echoes In Rain will all be very solid in the market I think.

Laying the place is an interesting one. Quite likely that should she not have a chance of winning Rachael will go VERY easy on her...

Love the complete difference of opinion between Bentring and strontium - that's what this game is all about!

Well, she's not even fav any more in some books so it looks like the 4/1 and over people might be correct...

You make a great point about the place - could well be win or bust.
