Part of a significant 'V' brigade invading next years race. Could be a fair few AQPS horses in the race and I'm not convinced he is the best of them.
Report Roselier December 20, 2016 9:54 PM GMT
With the changes to the fences the trends peeps have had to move the goal posts year on year but one very important trend is emerging and VLR doesn't fit it. Of the AQPS horses VIRAK, VYTA DU ROC and VALSEUR LIDO do but VICONTE DU NOYER, VICENTE AND VLR do not. Once the entries are out in January I will post something hopefully a bit more interesting than this vague post here!

Nothing vague about The Last Samuri

. Been taking the 25/1 and now 20/1, since his incredible run in the race this year.
And his brilliant 3rd in the recent Becher Chase just strengthend the view that the Aintree fences suit this small, but exhubriantly bold jumper.

I've put up Three Faces West and given reasons on the Grand National Forum on here and surprised and pleased to see he hasn't been raised from 147 after his easy win last week at Newbury.

I have also backed Vieux Lion Rouge just before his Becher win. Backed him before in case he won that which he obviously did and got the price.

I am actually on Regal Encore on here as well!!!! It was just a hunch that it might light him up so I've got £11 @320.  I will def lay some of that off as who could be confident in him.  having said that who knows??

So happy with where I am right now, but a long way to go.
Report Roselier December 21, 2016 10:48 PM GMT
shockster

Of those three you have backed I would say Regal Encore is the most likely, despite having no form over 26f yet. My reason for saying that is this;

If you look at the horses that have finished first and second in the last three runnings of the GN they all have something in common. Look at the best Top Speed rating over hurdles. All of them over 120. The National has changed. Tactical speed and the ability to travel at speed is becoming paramount in this race and horses that have been able to display this during their hurdles careers and transfer it are coming to the fore.

Im on More of That at 220s on here from November time and am starting to like it more and more. Personally see him having an exceptionally similar but better profile to that of Don't Push it (DPI). His jumping is exceptionally good, he's just not very quick, which over 4 miles you don't have to be. I think he got taken off his feet over inadequate trips in the BV Gold Cup and the Peterborough with Village Vic and Josses Hill respectively setting a frantic early pace. It's not surprise to me that his best run of the year came when he was upped in trip back and going back to 3 miles in the Lexus.  Off 157 he looks to be incredibly well handicapped to my eyes, assuming Don Poli (OR- 165) runs, he will be off what 11-2? 11-3? Providing he doesn't go and hose up between now and then. He no doubts appreciates better ground, he is crying out for a step up and you know what? This time last year he was a world hurdle winner, an Annie Power conquerer and an 15-8F for the RSA with lauding honours of the best novice in training from a lot better judges than me. You don't fall from grace that quickly. I think I'm talking myself into going back in.

Think there could be 5 rated 161 and sharing top weight, the handicapper likes to knock a few pounds off those at the head of the weights.
Champagne West,    5lb less than official rating
Don Poli           4lb less
Carlingford Lough  3lb less
Road To Riches     2lb less
The Last Samurai   rating untouched
So they would carry 11st 10 lbs making OR of 137 on the 10 stone mark.

don't like that more of that horse if i'm honest. don't think he's really done much over fences but has had plenty of chances.

lovely run from minella rocco. stayed on so powerfully up the hill that you'd have to think he's made for aintree and four miles. big horse as well so shouldn't have any problems getting around, even if he fell last time he was at the track. much more lightly raced than some.

Seem to remember More of That giving Mite Bight a good old hiding last season around Cheltenham. Since doing a blood vessel in last years RSA, he has either been campaigned over inadequate trips or ran particularly well in Grade 1s (Lexus & The Gold Cup). I dont necessarily think he has a better chance than Minella Rocco for the reasons you've stated, but il more than happily roll the dice with my 220s

they must be gutted they didn't leave tiger roll in off 152 looks a very feasible mark now does it not?

cause of causes is an interesting runner post cheltenham and now they don't have to drop him out, also gives them more options in the big race itself...likely to come forward for the run he was tailed in ap mccoys last national before staying on, make what you will of that run but he has to be of interest here after jumping really well that day...elliott prepped his only other winner in the cross country silver birch and this fellow surely has to be a player

minello rocco obviously comes into the reckoning as well, after finishing second in the gold cup but 10/1 is tight

Basically 2 weeks to go and here are my picks

Vieux Lion Rouge 66/1 backed before the Becher.
Definitly Red 80/1 on here.
Houblon Des Obeaux 100/1 on here. Layed off my stake.
Bishops Road 90/1 on here.
Double Shuffle 320/1 on here.  Layed off my stake.
Regal Encore 320/1 on here. Layed off my stake.

Since Cheltenham I added
Pendra 50/1 nrnb
Bless The Wings 100/1 NRNB but doubt he'll get in.

If it goes really soft I will back Raz De Maree also.

Having said all of this my biggest bet was on Three Faces West and that's gone, however I can't complain getting so many to the race.  Will need to have eyes in the back of my head to keep up with this lot. Excited

One I am beginning to really like is Stellar Notion  {Current price 80-1 on the exchange}

This season it has run in 3 major staying handicap chases : (1) Munster National (2) PP Handicap at Leopardstown over Xmas (3) Leopardstown Handicap Grade A chase:

1- Munster National - Stellar Notion (SN) was 2nd to Tiger Roll who has since come out and  demonstrated his staying class in winning the 4 miler at the festival. In this SN pulled 3 lengths clear of the third who was  again 7 lengths clear of the 4th. The third, Kylecrue has run more than respectively since, most notably in the same Leopardstown chase as SN when fishing 6th.
2- PP Handicap - 4th of 28 behind Noble Endeavour, Crafty Butcher & Oscar Knight. Horses SN beat include, Rogue Trade, Rogue Angel, Ucello Conti, Bless The Wings, Tennis Cap, Cause of Causes, Galant Oscar, Thunder & Roses, Captain Von Trappe. **Note he was giving weight to the 2nd and 3rd. With Noble Endeavour coming out and having run impressively at the Festival in the ULTIMA and since being made joint fav for the Irish national, I cannot imagine SN claims have been un-enhanced.
3- Leopardstown Handicap Grade A- 2 of 18. A Neck behind A Toi Phil, who has since come out and won albeit a questionable grade 2, but grade 2 none the less.

For me, fundamentally, he has placed over 3 miles, but will be stepping up in trip which is an unknown for any horse. Will he appreciate it? Will he not? There is only one way to find out.  Being number 39 he will definitely run should all be well, he is running off 10 stone 8 and should have last years winner David Mullins aboard. The large majority of his form is on good ground. For me absolutely no negatives there at all. Personally for me the only query about Stellar Notion is whether he will get 4 miles, but being by presenting  (sire of No More Heroes, On his Own, First lieutenant, War of Attrition, Denman, Ballabrigs, Yorkhill, Rogue Angel, Snow Falcon), one would assume there is a chance he will get 4 miles. And at 80-1, I'm more than happy to chance this.

I listened to the interview Scudamore did with the BBC about Vieux Lion Rouge and he is convinced that it is a vastly improved horse this season but I would still be worried about its jumping and I am not sure it is quite good enough for this.

Lewisham I think you need a rethink.

Surely if Pineau De Re was able to win then Raz De Maree & Saphir Du Rheu MUST be on your short list.  i appreciate however, that Houblon Des Obeaux does have too many letters?? Blush
Report lewisham ranger April 4, 2017 9:24 AM BST
number of letters is irrelevant. does houblon des obeaux sound like a national winner to you? not to me.

saphir du rheu possibly too much weight/doubt he would get the trip

actually one of the things I've noticed over recent seasons (say the last 7-8 years) is that the sire stamina index of winners, ie average winning distance of progeny has come way down. it used to be you needed a very slow sort of horse to win a national, a real plodder, but those days are long gone. nowadays the old style national types tend to get lapped.

there are still plenty of non-stayers every year though. Basically you need a horse that will stay and jump, plus also have plenty of cruising speed to lay up with them. The last samuri would be ideal in this aspect, but he possibly has too much weight. The stamina issue would be the worry for me with vieux lion rouge, does he really stay 4 miles 4? his sire index is quite low. another one I might be tempted to rule out on that basis alone is stellar notion, as the stamina index of his damsire, is rather on the lowside.
Report lewisham ranger April 4, 2017 10:08 AM BST
starting to lean towards one for Arthur after initially being against the horse

seems to score well on several important categories

firstly name isn't too bad Excited

secondly stamina

thirdly jumping, it's a huge horse and should get around

fourth weight

people talk about more of that being on a good mark which is quite possibly true but it still has to lug around well over 11 stones around 4 miles 4, and finish in front of everything else in the field, which is not easy for a horse that has had a wind operation and hasn't won a staying chase all season, and in general form seems to be on the downturn. Same with the kim bailey horse, it's quite small for a horse that has to carry such a weight. I do think that weight is important in a national.

the only thing I would mark one for Arthur down on is age, eight year olds don't tend to win very often (last winner was bindaree?)

although to be honest this is the one national I can recall where I don't have a strong fancy, someone said earlier in the thread that there's a lack of interest this year, easy to see why, it's an absolute head scratcher, even more than usual. could see an upset brewing ala mon mome.
Report lewisham ranger April 4, 2017 10:39 AM BST
I think the other thing that impresses me with one for Arthur is how far he has had to come from behind in his races. I know I have mentioned cruising speed in the national but most plodders who are held up just stay in that position, but this one has managed to come through entire fields. 4 mile 4 should be absolutely ideal for him.

In my opinion if we assume the Irish horses currently have a bit of an edge on the handicapping front and it is my belief that this year you need something that can be near the pace then the two most likely for me are Stellar Notion ( given an excellent write up above by Jb23 ) and Wounded Warrior.

Thanks Iris.
He was so far back, I'd written him off. Brilliantly ridden.

He jumped superbly, especially the Canal Turn second time. The fences may be smaller/softer but it is good to see a great jumper win this race
Report IrisDeBalme April 8, 2017 11:25 PM BST
yeah watched the replays - couldn't believe how far back he was... your not supposed to win nationals that far back... but great jockey to hold it so well...
