Rarely has a horse made such an impression on me visually. Clearly beat trees on his UK debut but saw his win at Lyon Parilly and the hurdle win at Cheltenham. He looks a total natural over hurdles, athletic with a high cruising speed.

Not sure about targets although the Triumph looks the obvious but not always the right race for a horse who could be totally exceptional. Very interested in any thoughts and maybe Chepstow next but looks such an exciting horse.

I have not lost faith in Landofhopeandglory and Housesofparliament despite defeat suffered by both yesterday and today; the former was giving 3lbs to Bapaume and Bapaume gained vital ground next to the rails rounding the final bend - Landofhopeandglory had to come wide; the latter was encountering slow/soft/yielding ground at Leopardstown today against Meri Devie (MD) who could be going for the Dawn Run Novice Hurdle like Limini last season. Ruby was reluctant to compare MD with Bapaume given the slow pace of the race and ground today.

I think (and hope) the form of Landofhopeandglory against Bapaume and Mega Fortune could turn out to be the best guide for the Triumph Hurdle.

Thanks for that. Short in the Supreme market but looks 12 pound clear of anything in the Triumph but the owner has plenty of other options! Taken all bets to zero loss but beginning to feel very uneasy as this horse imho is exceptional and mature in every sense so the Supreme route looks very possible.

Report impossible123 January 15, 2017 3:34 PM GMT
JP has several arrows for the Supreme and Triumph Hurdle best of which is Defi De Seuil who is rated 11lbs clear of the others eg Charli Parcs (139, impressive on debut), Landofhopeandglory (138, closely match with Bapaume, 137) and Housesofparliament (134) who was beaten by Meri Devie (receiving 7lbs) on unsuitable ground on his debut. But he has none for the Supreme Hurdle best of which on rating are Saturnas and Finian's Oscar (both rated 147 but unlikely), next best is Moon Racer (140, present fav).

As both Saturnas and Finian's Oscar are unlikely runners in the Supreme Hurdle Defi De Seuil, if rerouted here, would most likely be fav and have an excellent chance of beating Moon Racer (could go Champion Hurdle too) on rating; even if Saturnas and Finian's Oscar do run Defi De Seuil has the rating to beat both, all things being equal.

Hence, I think it does make sense for JP to run Defi De Seuil in the Supreme especially on softish ground and leave the others in the Triumph and yet has an excellent chance of winning both races, if so. Also, I cannot foresee JP running every one of his juvenile hurdlers in the Triumph Hurdle either.

Interesting impossible123 and think you may be pretty close to the likely outcome. I think DDS is a long way ahead of his Triumph rivals, so does the handicapper but that means he is certain to be very competitive in the Supreme. The noises from Hobbs are clear that the Triumph is the target and Saturday will tell us more. We know who has the final say and as a punter you just have to live with it.

Why would anyone be talking about this horse running in the Supreme unless of course you haven't backed him for the Triumph?

If the horse is much better than the other juveniles then what is the problem with just winning the Triumph? Why the need to push the boat out?

As stated Hobbs has consistently referred to him as a Triumph horse.
Report impossible123 January 17, 2017 10:05 AM GMT
JP owns Defi De Seuil and Charli Parcs both rated 150 and 139 respectively plus a few other juveniles hurdlers who are eligible to run in the Triumph and/or the Supreme; the highest rated horses for the Supreme (if they go there) not owned by JP are Finian's Oscar and Saturnas both on 147. Hence, Defi Du Seuil (JP) could win either, all things being equal, and Charli Parcs (JP) could win the Triumph given his highest rating, and his (2nd string) Landofhopeandglory is rated 2nd best on 138 along with Cliffs Of Dover; Housesofparliament (JP) on 134 could improve significantly given good/firm ground from his 1st run on soft.

Defi Du Seuil is the best horse for both races on rating, and firm fav for the Triumph at 6/1 and 16/1 for the Supreme. I think if the ground is soft or worse connection would be tempted to run Defi Du Seuil in the Supreme; if I was thinking of backing Defi Du Seuil I'd wait for confirmation of target and/or only on a "nrnb" from bookies.
Report differentdrum January 17, 2017 6:57 PM GMT
It is not as easy as saying one horse is rated higher than the other so it should go for the Supreme. It isn't unknown for JP to have two runners in the Triumph. That would certainly be the best option for punters. Why would you want to argue a move which benefit bookmakers over ante-post punters? As for the ratings Charli Parcs is a very difficult horse to assess accurately. If anything he looked far more the finished article than Defi Du Seuil. You don't get away with many mistakes in a Supreme. Personally, if I was JP I would go with Any Second Now, who could easily find 7-10lbs, and leave the four-year-olds in the Triumph. That way JP has a very good chance in the Triumph, a good chance in the Supreme and best all ante-post punters aren't shafted.

people cite Binocular as a JPM precedent but:

a) that was 9 years ago (scary!)
b) he got beaten in the Supreme - JPM owned the winner in Captain Cee Bee
c) JPM did n't win the Triumph that year
d) Binocular beat the Triumph winner Celestial Halo by 7 lengths at Aintree 3 weeks later so it would n't have been unreasonable to conclude Binocular would have won the Triumph if he'd run in it meaning JPM would have won both the Supreme and the Triumph that year instead of just the Supreme.

Once bitten, twice shy?
Report impossible123 January 17, 2017 11:57 PM GMT
I think if JP was prepared to run a juvenile in the Supreme nine years ago he'd be most likely to do so again this year given the numbers he has ie 8 runners; I also do not think JP can/will rely solely on Any Second Now to win the Supreme for him.
Report ReaseHeath January 18, 2017 10:18 AM GMT
Movewiththetimes might make up into a Supreme contender yet.

There's also the possibility that JP might buy another challenger between now and the Supreme - for example if you look at the entries for the trial race at Haydock on Saturday the majority of them do not have high profile owners so an impressive performance by something there and who knows?
Report NOW WE KNOW January 18, 2017 10:24 AM GMT
When I started this thread in late November the first thing highlighted was the chance that he was exceptional but his target may well not be the Triumph. I have had some significant bets but thankfully due to Betfair the position on the Triumph is now zero loss, decent win.

I understand differentdrums thoughts but to be honest they are a bit naïve when it comes to top owners and their plans. The connections will always do what they feel is best for the horse in their opinion and antepost punters are of no importance to them and why should they be!

Hopefully he will run in the Triumph but he is a mature Ex French horse and painful as it will be I suspect next Saturday we might get some news we don't want to hear.
Report impossible123 January 18, 2017 10:33 AM GMT
He could if he wanted to - he has the means. However, there is absolutely no need - he could easily have at least two if he chooses just by running either Defi Du Seuil and/or Charli Parcs along with Any Second Now; if the former, will have an excellent chance of winning it.

Of all his juvenile hurdlers Defi Du Seuil has the most potential to become his next Champion Hurdle prospect next year should he confirm his form, current rating and progress I believe.
Report differentdrum January 18, 2017 1:54 PM GMT
Not naive at all. My immediate reaction after Kempton was to see if any bookmaker was quoting Charli Parcs for the Supreme. Just don't quite understand why punters or media for that matter would want to steer an owner away from a target which at the end of the day is just going to benefit bookmakers and as I said shaft the vast majority of ante-post punters. I am sure JP doesn't really need any 'help' in making a decision.

Was Hobbs naive in continually stating the aim was the Triumph? He might not care two hoots about punters but would McManus want to make his trainer look foolish?

Just because nothing has stood out it doesn't mean the older novices are not better than the juveniles. Relative merits at this stage are guesswork. My guess would be that Any Second Now is actually better than the two juveniles and quite possibly the best long term prospect of the three.

One thing i will say, DDS was very clumsy at the last two hurdles at Chepstow, which surprised me. Ok, he may have been getting tired but i don't like to see that in novice hurdlers.
Charlie Parcs looked like he really wanted to get on with the job at Kempton, and looked electric on the good ground. Different conditions for him at Chelts tomorrow.

It's a stonking card and this race is an intriguing opener but for me it's a watching brief, i really like both horses and have won on both of them in the past.

Without a shadow of a doubt Charli Parcs showed enormous potential and still an unknown but we said the same about Jenkins too and he is in the Supreme, all things being equal. On the other hand DDS has adequate experience, if not the most of all JP's juveniles (4yr old), thus I just cannot see him lining-up for the Triumph over Charli Parcs - either of these two will go the Supreme or Triumph but not both, in my opinion - if I was the owner of both. And neither would Hendo (I believe) to have two of his in the same race.

DDS could only beat what were put infront of him and do not forget he is still very much a novice but with the best credentials.

think they are running him so much this season because he's small and lacks scope and they are striking while the iron is hot.

in a way he reminds me of katchit, who was also small and tough and also jazzed up in the triumph. He went on to win the champion hurdle but fizzled out very badly after that and I wonder if that will be the same here.

I think you need to look at him a bit closer Lewisham ranger. He is not massive but far bigger than Top Notch for example and has plenty of scope to jump fences. If he was still French owned he would have might been jumping them as a 3 yo such is the strength of French juveniles. Her has no resemblance with Katchit who was a Lady Rebecca type freak.

The problem impossible123 for next season is that the owner can cover so many bases with his horses so all bets are still on. That is the problem antepost these days as big owners have big strings. If I owned him with a one or two horse situation it would be CH next.
