not so long ago it was widely suggested to look for ex flat horses for a speed angle over nh types . 2015 douvan by "walk in the park" whose best form was second in the derby to motivator on good ground , 2016 altior by high chaparral won the derby on gs but certainly handled gf , 2017 labaik by montmatre a grand prix de paris winner on good ground .  sharjah will be a lot shorter than the 8-1  if he wins on sunday ,  evs to do so and summerville boy at 16-1 seem to fit the bill

i didnt think that getabird would be coming to the party and he fits the 1m4f fast ground sire profile . samcro by germany doesnt though . mullins talked about wanting slow ground for sharjah on sunday ,  mindgames ?. the dam is a good ground horse as is the sire , hes , just come off a fall though and i wouldnt be surprised given that its a very hot race that he may not be off ! on sunday . elliott is making all the right noises about samcro for sunday . i think he will win well , expect sharjah to run a race of promise

I think Mullins and Gigginstown will leave both horses in both races ie Supreme and Ballymore/Neptune, and possibly wait for the other to blink 1st. And by the way, one of the O'leary brothers had advised punters "not to read anything into the fact his sunday mission is over 2m as all Cheltenham options are open for him still, but he's likely to step up in trip for the Ballymore/Neptune after this."

However, Sharjah could be the benchmark of the ability of Samcro post sunday.

The two most exciting novice hurdlers are Samcro and Getabird, the former winning his races effortlessly, and the latter utmost impressive in his last race and on former bumper form. And I do not believe they will meet in this year's Festival.

The owner's interview with Matt Chapman on Sunday (albeit specific to Apple's Jade) would lead you to believe he is a pragmatist - he wants Festival winners and so is likely to choose what he considers to be the weakest race. His actions to date also suggest he has a lot of faith in Elliott.

Obviously there's little downside to backing him NRNB for the Champion Hurdle if you can get a price.

I see nothing other than media or punter speculation to suggest he's not going to run in the Ballymore.

the owner said Ballymore after the race on Sunday, and he has said that all along

he is the sort of person that the more people pressurise him to do something, the more he will stick to his guns. He would lose a lot of face by changing his mind now, especially if it looked like he had given way to popular demand

The winner of yesterday's Betfair Hurdle Kalashnikov looks destined here. My concern would be will he have the pace to keep up especially on good ground bearing in mind his jockey was fairly animated early on just staying in touch? I understand he pulled away on the run-in winning like a handicap snip but I think some of his protagonists did not turn up yesterday given atrocious ground condition.

The Ballymore is not much of an option either with Samcro and On The Blind Side in contention.

All over Claimantakinforgan****gwheelbarrow at 16/1+. He was 8/1 before his defeat at Mussleborugh. Now's he more than doubled in price. Ridiculous given Muss was way to tight a strack for a horse who has more stamina than speed and was also prepping. And to be fair, the horse that beat him is now 3/3 over hurdles so the form might actually be decent. Before that he won the Grade 2 at Ascot in such easy fashion, and posted a good time figure.

Elliot has been reported to say Samcro will be Ballymore/Neptune bound unless conditions become extremely testing at Cheltenham which is unlikely given it is the Festival, and the nature of the course. If so, he'd be Supreme bound, I believe.

The weather forecast for next week is inclement. If the one after is the same again that could give rise to testing conditions for Cheltenham, and Samcro could be Supreme bound. What a race, if so, against Getabird?; the Ballymore/Neptune could be "gifted" to On The Blind Side, in the event. Someone's misfortune is someone else's fortune, as the saying goes.

Let's hope the weather is reasonable and fair to all.

regarding laurina . i gave that idea up ,  i am in a good position with  summerville boy and was wondering whether he could actually beat getabird or i should exit at a profit . Having analysed getabird i think theirs good reason to think that summerville boy can indeed beat getabird . His Achilles heel seems to be the fact that all his form is right handed , when put under a little pressure in his maiden at the last he  jumps noticeably out to the right and in his last hurdle race he was positioned very close to the rail jumping the last , but , again defo looked to want to go out to the right . This is gonna give him big problems at cheltenham and makes him most definitely beatable .

Interesting angle and he does look plenty short enough now and the other market principals all look beatable so I'm looking for a shock result.

I think Getabird will still have the edge over Mengli Khan even on level terms. I also think Summerville the same over Kalashnikov despite the latter was running with 3 shoes. The subsequent question will be is Mengli Khan more superior than Summerville and/or Kalashnikov?

If the ground is no better than soft Getabird is difficult to beat, i believe.

Still not keen on the front of the market and with Vision Des Flos not declared I have switched to Scarlet Drgaon at 33/1 nrnb. Probably won't want it too soft but the price makes up for that.

Thought he ran an excellent race on his first attempt at Kempton under tender handling and the winner that day would surely be close to favouritsim if he were entered at Chletenham.

He reminds me a bit of Flown who was another ex-flat horse who made his jump debut in the same Kempton race before winning the Supreme.

Just two for me. They are Getabird and Mengli Khan; the former owes me from a no-show last Cheltenham, and the latter before his defeat by the former. Also, Samcro (10/1 but not nrnb) as a saver in a treble with Footpad and Might Bite.

I've got a lot of respect for Kalashnikov but Summerville Boy travelled and finished much better in the Tolworth. The former had lost a shoe but I don't think that explains him having to be pushed along as the same happened at Newbury, presumably with the full complement of footwear. SB has lost a couple of times at Cheltenham and maybe that explains his price but I'm sure those defeats were more to do with how the races were run than the track not suiting. The way he ran through the line on heavy ground at Sandown I can't see the hill holding any fears for him.

The first race Summerville Boy lost at Cheltenham they only jumped 5 hurdles with those in the home straight omitted due to low sun so I definitely would n't be holding that against him.

That said, I still think the winner of that race, Slate House, might outrun his odds - subsequently he was trying to give Claimantakinforgan and the rest 5lbs when beaten at Ascot so he's only really run one bad race which was up in trip, on desperate ground when his stable was out of form on Festival Trials Day.

The trouble is, of course, there are plenty that you can manufacture a case for on a similar basis - so will hang fire until after final decs

12/19  Irish trained
20/24  ran within 45 days

3/18  Only 3 favs have won from the last 18 to start 3/1 or lower.

There are enough stats to oppose all three at the head of the market.

Getabird....brings a similar profile to min,does he have the hurdling experience of previous winners from the stable,and are they concerned he can go left handed?

Kalashnikov....... fine horse,arguably beat half way up the straight in the betfair,his stamina kicked In and he came home strongly.Has he left his race there,and can the smaller stable produce him at his very best on the day.

Summerville Boy....another likeable horse,but he's been beaten a few times,comes here off a much longer break than ideal,and the stable again are not renowned for grade 1 winners.

Very open race,at much bigger odds Its easy to make a case for Paloma Blue and Slate House.Despite being regarded as the speed test for novices,at this age,these younger horses will need a degree of stamina, they will not have encountered this prolonged type of pace before.

Always maintained its the hardest race of the 4 days,the coming together of unknown types from both sides of the water,any of which can be improving rapidly as spring approaches.

Tremendous race to kick off...... plenty decent priced winners this century.

Thanks for the summary nocturnal. I wouldn't hold SBs Cheltenham defeats against him. They were both farcical races and the trainer said he improved for the stronger pace at Sandown. I glossed over what Tom George said back then but when I looked at the videos yesterday I absolutely agree with him. The break since he last ran is a concern.

Another strong stat is having big field experience,on this score Kalashnikov would have the edge,the betfair will have given Mullins an idea where he stands,bleu et rouge did not come over just for that race,that was a chance to gauge where they stand.

King......Tizzard horses been under cloud for a few months,well documented,Slate House has course form,a beating of Summerville Boy off levels,easy to dismiss both his last 2 runs,neither of which were without promise.The prep is not typical of a supreme winner, Labaik was another with a strange set figures,punters have been spoilt with a few shorties recently,I think this might be one where the layers fancy their chances.

No bet yet,the market may hold a clue raceday,48 hr decs may also give us a little more time once we have final field.

i was just coming to say well lucky me . then read the fake news thread of whipping willy . people that were interested have commentated on a regular basis on this thread then i see fake whippin willy cherry picking a few comments and making out he was god or something . shame , over 2 months looking forward to the race that guy has never commented , fact . the whole thread proves it . sorry to be a bit pi ssed after such a good result . its like a guy runs onto the pitch at the end or something and says hes captain . first time i ever saw this , someone hijacking what i said

sharjahs chance appears to be gone , he had good ground pedigree if he turns up , maybe he can do something . i think laurina can give getabird a race regardless of ground took a bit of 60s . very likely to be going the mares route though . if the cap fits trades at under 10.0 and has to get there and then get his ground to have a good chance so the 9.2 can stay , but summerville boy is overpriced imo . he should be shorter than kalshnikov imo

Now pipe down!

Summerville ran the same time as Buveur D'air in the Champion, only carrying 3lb less, and making mistakes too. I know they had the fresh ground but that is mightily impressive

I was confident at 4 out he would win but after 2 out I thought he might be in the first 6 at best! Did well to overcome another sloppy jump at the last and real in the very likable Kalashnikov. Summerville Boy must be a seriously good horse and his performance is backed up with the time recorded.
