Owned by JP McManus, who allegedly owns a share in the Supreme Novices Hurdle - Jezki.  What puts me off Jezki is that he is unlikely to have a run after xmas and head to the festival which I consider a negative really... a profile of a typical win oftens suggests a race fit horse.

Anyway, as for the Betfair Hurdle, I really do like MTOY because connections have stated this race as his next target and currently rated at the moment at 140... will be interesting to see what he is alloted this week.  I dont feel he will have the same weight as Zarkandar as he has not achieved as much...and Get Me Out of Here will probably keep his weight down anyway, we will just have to see ...

In last years race Henderson had two horses in this Get Me Out of Here and Darlan, both of whom were unlucky not to win the race... reckon they will make amends this year with MTOY...

It will probably be 5/1 on the day, but for those who wont bet because of the snow/abandonments etc over the next few weeks I would start putting your cash on this one over the next few weeks, with McCoy on board the Henderson bandwagon will be rolling on...

Then on to Chelt, I think it will be 2nd fav for the Supreme behind Jezki... 14/1 with the Supreme Novices at laddies...

Strong Betfair field in prospect


Ante-post favourite My Tent Or Yours features among 33 confirmations for Saturday's Betfair Hurdle at Newbury.

Nicky Henderson's charge was a seven-length winner on his most recent outing and beat subsequent Grade One scorer Taquin De Seuil on his hurdling bow.

He is one of six possible challengers from Seven Barrows, with Petit Robin topping the weights for the valuable handicap. Cash And Go, Punjabi, Lyvius and First In The Queue also feature for Henderson, while Paul Nicholls has three entries.

His possibles include second-favourite Pearl Swan, Dark Love and Caid Du Berlais.

Grumeti and Manyriverstocross have been left in for Alan King, with David Pipe triple-handed with Ronaldo Des Mottes, the unbeaten Swing Bowler and prolific winner Home Run.

Cause Of Causes leads the Irish challenge after winning The Ladbroke at Ascot before Christmas and he is on course to tackle another big handicap engagement.

Trainer Gordon Elliott said: "He's fine and the plan is for him to go to Newbury. We've also confirmed him for the Deloitte in Leopardstown, but that is just in case something happens with the weather or something like that. We're looking forward to running him."

Elliott also has Discoteca in the field, with both Willie Mullins and Tony Martin double-handed as well, with Midnight Game and Quiscover Fontaine, and Edeymi and Thomas Edison respectively.

The Eddie Harty-trained Princeton Plains rounds out a strong Irish contingent.

Other notable contenders include Court Minstrel, Cotton Mill and Claret Cloak but Mullins' Abbey Lane does not feature.

If they get no rain this week I'm sure they'll be tempted if he gets in. I'd like to see in the handicap proper, but would dare to suggest he is potentially the best handicapped horse in the race.

not been through the race in detail yet but initial reaction is that I like both Alan King's runners even though they've been off a long time (a very long time in the case of Manyriverstocross!) - most decent trainers can get them cherry ripe to return at home nowadays and the absences mean that they might be less exposed than would otherwise be the case.

John Ferguson is delighted with Cotton Mill as he prepares him for a crack at the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury on Saturday.

The six-year-old Tiger Hill gelding hasn't been seen this season after unseating Denis O'Regan when ducking left in the Neptune behind Simonsig at last year's Cheltenham Festival and finishing third over three miles in a Grade One at Aintree.

That last appearance was back in April but Ferguson isn't concerned by his absence from the track as he explained at Doncaster on Monday.

Profiles J P Ferguson Cotton Mill
"He's very well I'm very happy with him," Ferguson told sportinglife.com. "He's been A1 throughout the season but I haven't run him because the ground has been so heavy. I wasn't convinced he'd go on heavy ground and I didn't feel he needed heavy ground races early in the year.

"He's starting off a fresh horse, whatever he does at Newbury he'll improve for it and Newbury will tell us a lot. If the ground is decent we'll have a good idea if his next start is over two miles or two-miles-five."

The Champion Hurdle could be on the cards for Cotton Mill if he runs well this weekend, though Ferguson says all plans are on hold until he's proven himself over two miles.

Cotton Mill's last appearance came over three miles at Aintree, but it's a trip he's unlikely to run over again as Ferguson looks for options over two and possibly two-and-a-half miles.

He continued: "Cheltenham is in our thoughts, but to take the Betfair Hurdle along the way would be nice.

"The thinking behind dropping him back in trip is fairly simple. I started him off over two-and-a-half last year at Hereford and I never gave him the chance to run over two. He ran well in the Neptune and we thought he may get three miles which he patently didn't because at Liverpool he was bang with them two out and was beaten 10 lengths so he didn't get the three.

"He's a horse that won over a mile and a quarter at Newmarket on the Flat and he was as going as well as anything in the Neptune, he's got speed.

"We're going to be a lot older and wiser on Saturday night."

re- court minstrel  Evan Williams has warned leading contender Court Minstrel is far from certain to take his chance in the ultra-competitive Betfair Hurdle at Newbury on Saturday.

The six-year-old ran out an impressive winner on his debut over obstacles at Cheltenham in October and emerged with huge credit when third behind top novice Dodging Bullets at the same track a month later, having suffered trouble in running.

He was slightly disappointing when only fourth in the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown last time and having struggled to cope in the mud on that occasion, Williams insists his charge will only line up this weekend if conditions are right.

The trainer said: "We are keeping an eye on it, but he definitely won't run if the ground is very soft. It will have to dry out considerably for him to run.

"He's in grand form at home and I would prefer to run him if I can because the prize-money is so good, but the one thing we learnt at Sandown is that he can't handle very soft ground, so there is no point running him on it again this weekend.

"There is a bit of drying weather around at the moment, so we might be all right, but conditions will have to be suitable for him."

Court Minstrel holds an entry in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at next month's Cheltenham Festival, but at this stage Williams is keen to go down the handicap route with a horse he believes is well treated off a mark of 131.

"He won't run in top novice company as, in my opinion, he is not a Grade One novice," said the trainer.

"My feeling is that on good ground he is a well-handicapped horse, so we might as well look at the handicaps at those better meetings for the time being.

"Whether he runs on Saturday or not, spring will arrive at some stage and I am sure there is a good prize in him when he gets on some good ground."  from atr site.

The Betfair Hurdle (formerly the Totesport Trophy) is one of the major handicap hurdles on the British national hunt calendar and takes place at Newbury on Saturday 9th February. The race is generally won by a less exposed hurdler, the last 3 winners had run in just 3 hurdles race prior to landing this.

Backed the first three winners of this race in the 1960s and
used the same method for spotting the winner, first run at Aintree ROSYTH was the first winner, when moved to Newbury
ROSYTH had only gone up 1lb from previous year, but had shown some sort of form as it had, by running prominently until tiring close home, the third winner LE VERMONTOIS  did a similar type of race previously, I failed miserably when
I refused to back HILL HOUSE because I thought that RYAN PRICE would be warned off and so backed another horse from the same stable BEAVER II, HILL HOUSE won and PRICE was duly disqualified.
I spotted a similar type of pre-race form similar to all those years ago, I will disclose the name just minutes before the off.

have posted, except now it will be during running.
If you are such confident punters why would you look for other peoples opinions?
There is ALWAYS someone ready to run others down, particularly if they
have a different opinion to theirs, if I have shown a bombastic attitude
like claiming to be the BEST punter on this site, then I would deserve
criticism, all I have said is I will not give out name until just before the race,
now it will be during running.




lunacy.

I expect you'll give it out as they past the post....and - well I never/would you believe it  -   ... its the winner !!

I think you mean "as they PASS the post", you are the lunatic you can't spell
and you criticise me, you are also much too previous in your latest post,
perhaps if you had waited then you MIGHT have been able to level that
particular criticism at me, thicko.

You are an arrogant twaat aren't you.

WHY on earth would ANYONE care what you have bet let alone wait for you to post minutes before the off as if you are some kind of punting god

Clueless guessers like you are two a penny on here simply seeking attention

My suggestion fwiw is to stick your selection up your arse and don't bother posting it at ANY time, the only people interested are those that like me would come back and slaughter you for acting like a billy big bollox

Lyvius each way for me. While his Lanzarote run was very poor, I'll use the ground as an excuse for him. Massively overpriced at 40/1 and 60s on here and he's a very good each way punt.

Cash and Go is the only one towards the top of the market I'm interested in. I will be interested to see how Court Minstrel runs though and hope he can boost Melodic Rendezvous form somemore before the supreme Wink

I have been wrong in my judgement before and I will be wrong again,

One person states that I am  arrogant and in the same sentence asks me to

a nom de plume using an excellent racehorse from the past and not matching even that horses

8-1 WAR would be an OK price, he was very impressive. But JP will listen to AP, and after hearing his post race comments I'd want 8-1 on him turning up for the Champion.

Bazzar, there's no shame in getting it wrong, I went in heavily each way on Cash and Go. The problem occurs when you start bigging yourself up and acting like you've uncovered a near certainty and then refuse to name it until the race starts. You can end up looking very silly if the horse doesn't win and a complete fool if it trails in stone cold last. Which it did.

Much better to just state your opinion and give reasoning much as the OP did with devastating accuracy. Well done that man.

Funny you should hold that opinion, because that is what I thought about others opinions as regards my post, I believe that you like many others had read, BUT NOT digested what was written,
you followed others like a lot on here and I have only backed in running on a VERY few occasions, I dropped more than a ton EW on the horse so I did believe I had spotted something which had worked many years ago but unfortunately I was wrong, obviously the theory did not travel from the past, there are a whole host of posters on here who are followers and that is what annoys them, what is wrong with a belief in YOUR OWN ABILITY?

Backed the first three winners of this race in the 1960s and
used the same method for spotting the winner, first run at Aintree ROSYTH was the first winner, when moved to Newbury
ROSYTH had only gone up 1lb from previous year, but had shown some sort of form as it had, by running prominently until tiring close home, the third winner LE VERMONTOIS  did a similar type of race previously, I failed miserably when
I refused to back HILL HOUSE because I thought that RYAN PRICE would be warned off and so backed another horse from the same stable BEAVER II, HILL HOUSE won and PRICE was duly disqualified.
I spotted a similar type of pre-race form similar to all those years ago, I will disclose the name just minutes before the off.

you dug yourself a pretty big hole there mate but instead of climbing out...

But this is a forum bazz, its about sharing opinions on horses/races - if not why bother coming on?

You ask for info a lot of times and wish for access to video etc. You don't actually know that posters are followers but what's wrong with sharing your experience and knowledge? People will disagree and have a different opinion but does that matter? No

However your posting betrays a level of either arrogance or plain rudeness, I'm not sure which really. Neither do I care as I have moved on.

Sorry one final thing you have a penchant for being very pedantic and picking up people for slight mistakes or not have a question mark after a question.

Yet when you try and correct someone about the name of a horse that came last in a race, you couldn't even spell the name correctly. Nobody would say anything as its an obvious but you so readily accuse people of lying it deserves that the question be asked of you. Noted that you didn't have the decency to correct yourself
