I've traded him for a 70/1 free bet. He fits the dosage trends perfectly but smacks too many fences for my liking and I think this could either be a new beginning or perhaps the end for him.

Remember Red Marauder, hit almost every fence, the one trained by M. Ppe that finished placed, I'm sure that he hit every fence?
Was it Epervier Bleu, or something?

trev is correct,people seem to have stuck with the view that he cannot jump,not so,every race there has been improvement in his jumping,and if he gets round has a big chance imo.

Report TD_Gunner April 6, 2010 7:35 PM BST
Ballyfitz is undoubtedly well handicapped but he´s far from a natural over fences and it´s to his credit he overcame a more than one blunder to finish fourth. He´s in the National but given his tendency to smash through fences one would have to be worried for him if he did run.
Report TD_Gunner April 6, 2010 7:36 PM BST
Ballyfitz did well to finish at all considering his blunder early in the back straight second time round
Report TD_Gunner April 6, 2010 7:36 PM BST
Ballyfitz ran well in the Paddy Power but effectively ended his chance here with three early errors.

i'll take ur word for it. but he has jumped badly this season (in general), but seems well handicapped so if he jumps well, has to have a chance. but just seems a big IF.

Hello Bud only fails on no top3 last 3 runs - being a 12yo that stat must be a worry.

Had a look at Ballyfitz - he has never actually fallen(did unseat ft over fences), but look at his i/r comments - hits more than one per race which has to be a concern. Fails on the top3/last3; won a 29k+ race & top 5Henn/Top3 IGN-WGN-SGN etc trends.

Irish Raptor fails on at least 4 trends.

Murphy said: "At the moment, if one horse comes out then Silver Birch, who is 41st on the list, gets a place in the John Smith's Grand National and Cerium would be next. If that happens, I will withdraw Mr Pointment to get Cerium in the race. Of course, if nothing comes out, Mr Pointment will run.

"I know that Howard is also looking at the same option - he has Abbeybraney (no 40) in and wants Royal Rosa, who is listed one below Cerium at 43rd, to run instead. So it could be that if one horse comes out, there will be three new runners in the John Smith's Grand National on Saturday."
