And Imperial Commander will be the first horse crossed out in many books.

I'd guess Long Run and then Hurricane Fly will be the most popular horses.

And at least the winner's pot will be big.  Happy

Most of the leaders also have Hurricane Fly and Long Run. If these both win over Christmas, the important bonus races could be the Irish Hennessy and the novice combinations. No more points for Big Bucks before the festival.
With horses racing only 3-4 times a season , the TTF is like one big accumulator. Its very hard to make ground up after a loss.
The fact that last years winner finished on 782 points shows that are plenty points to fight for yet.

Comparing points totals to a similar stage last year, they seem to be a lot lower this year. Even taking in account that Little Josh won the PP last wasn't even in the TTF.
In 16th in the December monthly prize but feel I have no chance as the leaders ahead of me have similar entries.

I wouldnt lose faith in Kauto Stone just yet, he could still get circa 80 points.

I would think Nihols will send him to Ascot over 2 and a half miles in the middle of Feb (29 points), then onto the Ryan Air.

Hi Hanbury
At the moment Kauto Stone has a big fat zero. Hopeful of him winning the ascot Chase but unlikely to get his favoured soft ground at Cheltenham  .Don't know what the opposition might be at Ascot. Captain Chris, Medermit earmarked for this race. Maybe Riverside theatre might come out here.
On 307, have a 300(let down by Menorah and Hidden Cyclone yesterday) and 297 also but still 120 behind the leader. Without no potential Irish Hennessy Gold Cup,Betfair Hurdle or ?RacingPost Chase runner its a forlorn hope. Was banking on Rubi Light making it into an Irish Hennessy horse.
Some inspired subs required. For me, it's only a bit of fun really to seek the interest over the National hunt season.Stops me losing more money on bets

Most of the leaders have subbed to include the obvious horses Sprinter Sacre, Grand Crus and Sizing Europe. Therefore, a lot of the top 10 have very similar lists.
