4 weeks to go until Wales' biggest raceday.

Synchronised 7/1
Beautiful Sound 10/1
Carruthers 12/1
Galaxy Rock 12/1
Wymott 14/1
Master Overseer 14/1
Giles Cross 14/1
The Minack 14/1
Hey Bg Spender 16/1
Neptune Equester 16/1
Western Charmer 16/1
Prince De Beauchene 20/1

Early dart for me is last years runner-up, Giles Cross. His course form reads 12F12. He is 6lb higher than last year which seems reasonable given he comes into the race on the back of a win under top-weight, where as last year he was pulled-up in the race prior. He also jumped well last time and i'd not be surprised to see Victor Dartnal put up a claimer, but no worries if not.

The horse has had a 6 week break since winning, which is the same amount of time between races going into the race as last season, so you would hope this is the main target.

I know LBB is the stables number 1 chance but what about Heathcliff at 66-1 now so many have come out. I know hes been running over hurdles of late but he goes well here in the mud and in his short chase career he would have split Synchronised and Giles Cross in a novice chase having not fallen at the last. He till needs a few to come out and has obviously not shown as much appetite for fences as hurdles but he also ticks alot of boxes, the likely slow pace will suit his jumping and given where the other two finished in last seasons renewal haas to have a good e/w chance at big odds.

O'Neill: Lexus more likely for Synchronised

BY LEE MOTTERSHEAD 6:35PM 21 DEC 2011

SYNCHRONISED, favourite with all firms to complete back-to-back victories in Tuesday's Coral Welsh National, seems likely to miss the race after trainer Jonjo O'Neill revealed that the following day's Lexus Chase at Leopardstown has become his staying star's preferred target.


Connections of Synchronised have long earmarked a repeat bid but the lure of a Grade 1 prize and a reluctance to force the eight-year-old to concede lumps of weight all round have caused a change of mind.
Assuming ground conditions remain testing at Leopardstown - where conditions were on Wednesday described as soft - Synchronised is likely to tackle the Lexus, for which he can be backed at 20-1 with ****.The sponsors, like most firms, have the JP McManus-owned chaser at 6-1 for the Welsh National.

O'Neill said on Wednesday: "I honestly don't know for sure yet which one he'll go for but I'd say that Leopardstown is the favourite. If the ground is testing enough in Ireland I think he will definitely end up there."




The leading Irish-trained contenders for the 3m event are Rubi Light and Joncol, separated by five lengths when first and second respectively in the Grade 1 John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown this month, and Quito De La Roque, who extended his winning sequence to five straight wins when taking the Grade 1 JNwine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal last month.

The other acceptors are RSA Chase winner Bostons Angel, Roi Du Mee, Magnanimity, China Rock, Follow The Plan, Roberto Goldback , Cooldine and The Midnight Club.

Chepstow on Wednesday dried out a little to heavy, soft in places, which might not be ideal for O'Neill's other acceptor Galaxy Rock, one of 33 horses left in the track's most prestigious race, which is also the highlight of the BBC's only televised jumps fixture outside the John Smith's Grand National meeting.

Proven in mud is the Mark Bradstock-trained Hennessy Gold Cup hero Carruthers, who worked well under big-race jockey Mattie Batchelor on Tuesday.

The rider told At The Races: "I said to Mark he looks better than he did before Newbury. That is probably a brave statement because he won a Hennessy, but he felt in good nick."

3m on soft-yielding ground as opposed to 3m5f on soft-heavy ground and Jonjo is saying that Synchronised is gonna run at Leopardstown. Not a hope in hell if you ask me against the likes of Quito De La Roque and Rubi Light. The further this horse goes, the better he is and thats makes the Welsh National the only race for this fella at Christmas. Would be very surprised if he went for the Lexus. The forcast over here in Ireland by the way is for a very mild week.

To me the really interesting one is Cannington Brook (available at 24 here), with the bookies the remaining 20/1 is now disappearing.

He is far too long a price.

Main reasons for the selection:
progressing well
looks like a very dour stayer to me (almost exactly the sort of plodder you need for this test)
should appreciate the step up in trip from the inadequate 3 miles last time when winning in a desperate bog at Haydock
first time over a long trip may bring about further improvement

Just a thought for you all.

Warwick race (used to be Brooke Bond national, god knows what its called now) in January was the reported aim for Cannington after his last win. Can't completely rule him out of running at Chepstow but its a big ask for any horse with so little time to recover from that Haydock slog.

Report roobuck December 22, 2011 6:23 PM GMT
Agree re Cannington Brook. If the Haydock race had been 3-4 weeks ago with Welsh National the aim, then it would be a hell of a bet. Cannot see it running personally and if it is declared, I think that run will have left its mark.

FWIW, I believe what JJ said about Synchronised makes it more likely he will appear at Chepstow. He puts in the caveat of the ground and at the moment it is only soft at Leopardstown and from what I can see not significant rain forecast. Obviously if he does turn up he is a threat to all and much as Giles Cross is an admirable horse, I don't see any reason why he will turn tables from last year on only a 1lb better terms.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, had a small play on As de Fer at 20s, not quick enough off the block after its Ffos Las run to get the fancy prices, but is now too short.

Have also played Cappa Bleu as I think he could just be a better horse than his rating though have to be wary of the 'bounce'factor.

But now the 5 day decs have made a huge difference to the complexion of the race and I am really drawn to Le Beau Bai for all the reasons mentioned previously, and for the fact that he can race of his true mark. 14s more than fair though this has now nearly all gone.

All of the above e/w.

Good luck all

Denis O'Regan feels Giles Cross has every chance of going one better than last season in the Coral Welsh National at Chepstow on December 27.

Victor Dartnall's stayer only found Synchronised too good in the rearranged race in January, and returns for a second attempt on the back of a successful seasonal reappearance at Fontwell six weeks ago.

"He's very tough, he's all heart and a very genuine horse," O'Regan told At The Races.

"He was a bit unlucky last year when he ran into a few decent horses like Synchronised in the Welsh National and Companero in the Eider Chase.

"I think the biggest thing in the last couple of years was he hadn't been winning first time out but he did this season at Fontwell.

"We were really pleased with that. He hit the ground running and he deserved to get his head in front.

"If he hadn't won you'd have been thinking he's always going to finish second. He's one of those horses that I can't believe how he keeps pulling out those performances.

"He's got a lovely racing weight, you couldn't ask for better one in a Welsh National. He'll love the conditions, he'll love the track and he's been trained for the race.

"That's been well-documented and I'm really looking forward to the ride."

O'Regan was aboard stablemate Exmoor Ranger in the marathon last winter while Harry Skelton partnered Giles Cross.

"For some reason we didn't go that fast in the race last year. A lot of horses seemed to be travelling well turning for home," O'Regan recalled.

"He has got a bit of speed as well and has a touch of class which is what you need for one of these big staying races."

Surprising that he is so weak on here if he is an intended runner, particularly in view of the fact that he creeps in off 10 stone despite failing to get the penalty he was presumably aimed at LTO. If there is a valid excuse for the last run and in view of his previous profile I would have expected him to be stronger. Nothing lined up to back as I post this so be careful.

I'm sure I've read that Sona Sasta is already stabled up in Ireland to run in the Paddy Power Hcap on same day.

Happy Christmas to all and good luck on the 27th :)

Thanks for the Kwon Rod!

Shame, I thought he was a perfect fit. Must be because of Master Overseer (who I also like a lot) having been laid out.

Will look again Boxing Day

Happy Xmas

If Chicago Grey cant travel to Chepstow, then surely Synchronised cant travel to Leopardstown. And the ground st Leop isn't going to be as bad as some may have thought - soft ground at the worst. Surely that means Synchronised will be back at Chepstow to defend his crown....

Good news Sint for us Giles Cross backers!
Report sintonian December 26, 2011 9:50 AM GMT
I wasn't particularly worried about his participation tbh steve. It is very hard to win nationals off 155 and GC is a different horse this year, hence why I backed him in November!

fingers crossed.

Hopefully Jonjo will share his knowledge of ferry crossings with Gordon Elliott.

Le Beau Bai has to go close off 131 here, placed 2 years ago off 143 or something. Ran a good race to beat Sona Sasta, loves the mud and has 10 stone 1lb. Maximum each way bet for me at 10/1

I like the top two despite the fact that they have plenty of weight on heavy ground.

Tizzard has had race in mind for HBS for some time and states he is big horse tailor made for carrying weight in handicaps - though there is a school of thought that he prefers smaller fields.

Anyway trend developing towards the higher rated types in this race so I will split stakes between Hey Big Spender and the admirable Carruthers.

GC does not seem particularly strong on here .. but then nor was Raya Star who drifted 4pts in 24hrs.

Viking Blond the definate big mover, very strong support on here.
Report crescent December 27, 2011 10:55 AM GMT
I thought that everything went right for GC last year, he got a very comfortable passage in front and jumped very well.He won,t get it easy in front today. I backed him last year and though he could run well again i think he will be found out in the closing stages.

Any Currency for me.
