Calipto does look a worthy favourite with his weight, trainer and course form.
When: 14 Jan 15 14:17
What's the maximum field size for this race please?
When: 14 Jan 15 14:38
Pretty sure it's 24.
When: 14 Jan 15 14:55
Thanks shockster... I've had a nibble at Arzal at 46 on here... needs about ten to come out though... also like Seedling but not at the present price... cheers...
When: 14 Jan 15 15:33
I'm kicking myself as I had had Calipto in mind for this for a while, and just missed the boat. Didn't think he'd get this smashed this quickly. The other one I really like is Nicholls' other runner, Emerging Talent, who looked to be going just as well as L'Ami Serge lto before falling. It's interesting that he was entered tomorrow (been taken out now), and has plenty of entries in the next few days as well, just after the weights have come out. He'll need plenty to come out to get in, but a win in a novice this weekend would serve the purpose of getting him a penalty, which would practically guarantee him a run.

If he wins well, which the collateral form with L'ami Serge suggests he could, he could go there a very very well handicapped horse. I wouldn't be worried that Nicholls also has Calipto, as he has run a few in this race plenty of times. 14s seems way too big to me.
When: 14 Jan 15 18:08
I've had a wee bet on Ebony Express, who looked pretty good winning his first two hurdles races this year. In trainers stable tour he likened this one to Overstrand, who he trained to be a close 2nd in this race. He's aiming Ebony Express at the race, so I'm thinking if he doesn't get in he'll be balloted out and stakes returned.

Some might be put off by his last run, finished 6th, but I watched that race again and he was not put into it at all, as far as I'm concerned it was spin to keep him ticking over for this. Dr Newland is a fantastic target trainer.

Try as I might I couldn't find any superstars lurking (imo) so a wee punt on this one is worthwhile at 25/1 as I believe there is more to come, interestingly Lards are as low as 14/1.
When: 16 Jan 15 10:08
"Calipto is very much on course for the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury next month. He has had a breathing operation after choking at Cheltenham first time up in October - I said as much immediately after the race - and I think that he can be competitive off his mark. Newbury has been the long-term plan for him since Cheltenham".  Paul Nicholls
When: 17 Jan 15 07:56
What penalty does Top Notch get if he wins today?
When: 17 Jan 15 20:06
Top Notch gets a 5lb penalty, jumps up from 47th to 34th in list so will get a place. really impressed with it's quick jumping today and looks right type for race

When: 21 Jan 15 18:16
Thanks for posting the latest entries shockster... I've gone in again on Arzal... average odds just shy of 50 now... pleased to see it's up to 25 on the list...

May I ask where you found the list of entries listed in weight order?  Was looking earlier today but with no luck...

Thanks KSI... searched Arzal entries on the RP site and it shows the race on Feb 7 with '65 runners' which was the original amount of entries... scrolling down I can see the list is updated with my pick sitting pretty at 25... cheers...
When: 21 Jan 15 20:18
fascino rustico looks fairly weighted imo could run a big race....
When: 21 Jan 15 20:41
Needs 18 to come out though Alleged. Has to be doubtful to get a run.

When: 25 Jan 15 20:34
Does anyone know what the penalty structure is for the race? Ie. How many lbs for a win?
When: 27 Jan 15 10:31
Aso and Baradari got 5lb Penalties according to RP racecard, don't know if penalties linked to class of race or just 5lb a winner?
When: 29 Jan 15 08:17
fascino gets 5lb rise that should get him in imo Happy
When: 31 Jan 15 22:58
Violet Dnacer been kept under the radar for this, hope it gets in
When: 01 Feb 15 21:48
Fascino Rustico has no penalty (Racing Post) unfortunately, but if he gets in would have a favourite's chance.

Swing Bowler is another that needs defectors but she is well handicapped,  seems to go on any ground and has run well in this event before. At 33/1 she looks e/w value. She needs about ten to drop out.

Royal Irish Hussar is unlikely to run but is on a very good mark at present.
When: 01 Feb 15 22:12
Fascino Rustico has no penalty (Racing Post) unfortunately, but if he gets in would have a favourite's chance.

just think he,s much better than his current mark, poised to win and fell a couple of times, beat decent sorts at kemp last year, had the ulcer problem, theres a lot to like this year.... Happy

When: 02 Feb 15 05:40
I think you'll find F.Rustico DOES have a penalty to carry. Can I suggest you look at the conditions of the race.
When: 02 Feb 15 07:27
Penalties after January 11th, a winner of a hurdle race 5lb; of 2 hurdle races 8lb

thanks fact find Happy
When: 02 Feb 15 09:37
I suggest that you take it up with the Racing Post as they see fit to leave the said beast on 10:2.

I also suggest with some justification that the best part of you ,Fact Find, ran down your Mother's leg.
When: 02 Feb 15 10:56
is there really any need for those kind of comments dunlaying Sad
When: 02 Feb 15 11:51
Time of the year isn't it alleged, you get these types of people on here as we approach Cheltenham sadly.

When: 02 Feb 15 16:24
32 left in,sign of a victory the new top weight.

done baradari ew myself so glad he stood his ground,feared they might have kept him to the longer trip and pulled him out.
When: 02 Feb 15 16:56
Looks like a dry week, wonder if it'll be testing or not. Only soft going right now.
When: 02 Feb 15 17:11
Short List:

Activial (assuming improvement and weight pull from Ascot to get past the one below)
Pine Creek (seems overpriced @ 25 on here compared to the above, runner?)
Balgarry (lightly raced for it's age and respected Trainer)
Violet Dancer (could be a sneaky one at 38 on here with the Trainer's race record and an AWT prep run)
When: 02 Feb 15 17:31
Very poor renewal methinks, will have to invest a shilling on something but will wait for declared runners.
Ibrahima Sonko
When: 02 Feb 15 18:17
Cant see any rain all week, going to be minus 2 overnight before the race, not sure what affect covers will have on the ground too.
When: 02 Feb 15 18:31
Fascino rustic I have just noticed has an entry in the deloitte the day after, back up plan maybe should he not get a run here.......?
When: 02 Feb 15 18:40
Chieftain's Choice looks to have a bit of class about him. Improver, front runner, so lot to ask, but I like him. Good fast hurdler, like the 20-1, just hope he runs.
When: 02 Feb 15 19:23
Sign of a Victory being overlooked here imo. Without the Xmas Hurdle run he'd be 4/1 max imo, and that's easy enough to forgive.  Would want reasonable ground though.
When: 02 Feb 15 19:38
Vasco du Ronceray looks overpriced at 25-1. Not a great race he won last time but did it tidily enough and not off a bad mark considering his novice form.
Ibrahima Sonko
When: 03 Feb 15 06:05
3" of snow in Newbury overnight
When: 03 Feb 15 12:19
I have gone for Seedling. Form is good as anything that finishes placed behind it wins next time.
When: 03 Feb 15 13:25
As with last weeks Sandown handicap, this is another big race that seems a shadow of it's former self. Was always my favourite handicap hurdle of the year - Large Action just beating Oh So Risky, Geos chinning Rooster Booster on the line, Decoupage hosing up etc, but this years entries are hardly worthy of a supporting race on a big Saturday card.Sad
