I'm having at least one small saver on Mad Jack Mytton fwiw.  All other positives aside, that Champion Hurdle entry, while clearly optimistic, keeps winking at me.

One horse I cant have is Zarib, hopefully come 350 i will look stupid. The horse has not improved a pound since the fred winter, usually a juvenile will improve by many pounds like Old Guard. And with time the P&C form is not what we thought it once was.

But he did run probably his best race lto without ever looking like a winner.

Zarib's last run in the Ladbroke shows the improvement he has made only 7L off
Sternrubin and today getting approx a stone so at the prices will take Zarib.
The other horse worth mentioning is Kalkir think this horse could be class
2nd to Henry Higgins in the Coral.ie hurdle. Given a very strange ride by
J Ricou that day, think this may be the one for the Mullins coup.

Best of luck with Blazer HM not on and no value now but best of luck.

Well done ReeseHeath.
Sternrubin never got going, disappointing right from the start.

Odd about Sternrubin. Never going at the same pace he's shown in last 2 races.
RJ had him right in pole position the first time they came in  - and I was expecting a flyer.
The false start meant a standing start second time round. And though Sternrubin was at the front as they set off, maybe that ' delay' had  somehow spoilt him and he switched himself off ?

NW said no entries have been made for Cheltenham , but if you look at his Tolworth run , he jumped fine but always gave the impression in his body carriage that he would be happier going left handed , she had to tug him in a few times . So am sure they will be tempted .

Well done Reaseheath, makes yorkhill a superstar.

And well done to Nick Williams, a lot of people have written him off but he has a decent CV>

Thank you, Facts, IS and others - don't mind admitting it ends a bit of a barren spell for me.

Agree about Yorkhill, IS - Tolworth form franked by O O Seven at Musselburgh last week too - but not as spectacularly.

wd rease and those with big ew prices on the placed horses.

Agree with Ibra that Zarib has seemingly made no improvement since last season. Thought he deserved the benefit of the doubt today but he folded pretty quickly after the turn for home.

Very disappointing run from Sternrubin. Never travelling and jumping like he can. Can only assume the ground was far too heavy.

Well done to anyone who backed Agrapart or indeed any of the placed horses. Had a sneaking suspicion that Starchitect was going to run well but didnt back it up with hard cash. That said, also thought Mad Jack Myton could go well but I think the ground did for him too. One to watch at Cheltenham on better ground.

All in all a massive anticlimax!

I'm still of the opinion that the false start ' did ' for Sternrubin.

Didn't like it when Sternrubin was having his girths tightened while the rest of the field were already jig jogging around.

Affaire D'Honneur was very unlucky, perfect position fist go, got left at the second attempt.
