Vinndication not confirmed by Kim Bailey yet but with Topofthegame at the head of the weights he should aim him here imo.

Have taken some 16/1 as he will be vying for favouritism if he does run imo.

In case he doesn’t run the other one I like the look of is Black Op @ 20/1 so have added that too.

Strange race this year with a horse with a massive rating that only Denman has defied in decades. Topofthegame is an appalling price imo.

I thought Kildisart ran really well behind Roksana lto. As far as prep races go that was decent. 20/1 seems fair.

Beware the Bear seems a delicate individual given his number of appearances but is really well in based on last years performance in this race. Withdrawn from the Scottish Grand National because of the ground I assume Henderson thinks the trip is not a problem.

Taken the 60 on here and hoping he is in the line up come the day.

Topofthegame out for season.

Favourite out but the worry now is that Bailey won’t want to run Vinndication under top weight.

Just backed last year's winner DE RASHER COUNTER at 20/1. Won well last year on a 6lb lower mark and only 8yrs old so still can improve. Laid out for the race and had a nice prep over hurdles.

Betfair now only have 28 in their market with a safety limit of 24 I think. THankfully Beware The Bear is one of the 28.

the curse of ante post betting gigg de rasher counter out for season, tendon injury.

i backed COPPERHEAD before he ran a abysmal race over hurdles at wetherby, looking like something was amiss.

be well pleased if he just turns up on the day and at least the yard is in better form now.

According to Joe Tizzard they didn’t find anything wrong with Copperhead after Wetherby and he’s on target for this race.
I backed him a while ago but don’t like the bet after that alarming cut out.

Yes annoying when they don't make the race knot. Always got a few ante post multi bets on the go and had Copperhead in all of them but they are all down now after the Breeders cup..big fan of the horse but don't fancy it now like Numismatist said..think it might need another prep run.

Two for gold @ 25s looks good Paulo..just looking at the card and how the weights are framed, I do like looking for a class horse with 10st something..The Conditional and Two for gold are the 2 with lovely racing weights.
All the value has gone now though in all the horses so just have to wait for the day now.

Cloth Cap one with potential to shorten significantly. Needs decent ground and taken out of RDT’s handicap last Sunday.
Ran a nice race behind Frodon and dropped a couple of pounds since. Could see him being a 12s chance on G/S ground.

I've got Cloth Cap in one of my Ten to follow teams as a wildcard staying chaser..definitely think he will win at least on big handicap chase this year..was thinking more a spring race like Chelt/Scot Nat/Bet365. If he turns up on decent going should run into a place with that low weight but also entered in the Becher chase the following week

I thought Vindication ran a cracker at Wetherby , never travelling like the winner ....but was very close at the end.
Just like CDO in the Betfair , I don't think Cyrname had much left whereas Vindication looks a Gold Cup horse to me , all about stamina.

No doubt vindication stays well and I think I know what you are getting at...clan des obeaux stayed he was just outclassed imo you have to remember the rating Bristol is capable of running to around haydock...cyrname I don’t get your opinion the rider just wanted to give the horse a nice experience he won unextended in my book
Report sixtwosix November 23, 2020 8:22 PM GMT
Fair enough it's all about opinions.
I didn't believe the Cyrname hype last year and was on several threads on how he would not win the King George .....

I just thought the last few strides there was just a hint , a little shake of the reins ,that enough was enough ....
Whereas Vindication reminds me of Native River , and the long straight at Newbury over an extended trip will suit him .

Bailey says Vinndication definite runner but Two for gold might go to Newcastle instead as he doesn't think he is an out and out stayer

I thought that Twiston Davies thought that he never had much left under him and was dreading when the moment came to ask the horse the question all the way up the straight. I thought Jacob on the other hand was relishing the prospect of a battle.

Backed Beware the Bear and Copperhead at big prices and have subsequently traded and have used some of the "green" money to back Potterman as well.

Will back them all in a hopeful 6 place market.

When Sizing Tennessee won a couple of years ago the price collapsed a few minutes before the race so I will be watching Copperhead`s odds closely to decide on additional trading.

Not often we see 8/1 the field in a handicap with 18 runners.

Wee glance at the race overnight,more like an Afro Pick than a Fine Toothed Comb.

Two second season chasers from last seasons notebook take their chance later today.

Danny Whizzbang ..... Rated 145,second string from the nicholls yard on jockey bookings.Successful on this card 12 months ago in the novice chase,he looked a fine prospect on his chasing bow.

Not quite gone to plan since then,with 3 lacklustre performances given the bare facts.Just the 6 runs under rules,all of those were right handed bar his run here a year ago.Whether by design or otherwise,he should be ok on this ground and looking forward to see how he shapes back on a flat left handed track.

Wind surgery x2 is not ideal,but he had a nice opener at wincanton,never really put in the race,jumped soundly and with another 3 weeks under his belt,he might just out-run his current odds.

Ardlethen ..... Rated 138,ran in the same race as DW on this card last season.

Lovely racing weight today,there are bits and bobbs that suggest he could shape well in this type of race.His novice chase bow at chepstow was quite impressive,quickening up to beat the likes of Lisnagar Oscar/Truckers Lodge over 3 miles.

His profile suggests he does not want proper winter ground,his only effort as a novice hurdler on good ground was very useful.Mainly kept to left handed tracks,his seasonal bow at carlisle was not without promise,another who needs to come on for that,this ground might see him in a better light.

While it may lack a star horse on paper,always an informative race for the season ahead.

Should be a cracker,GL to those playing.

Report giggitygiggity November 28, 2020 5:23 PM GMT
I'm guessing because she's had 3 runs already this season and keeping her fresh hopefully for a grade 1 over xmas when the leaderboard will really take shape. I only stuck her and Darver star in at the last minute as I had my bankers Shiskin and Envoi Allen in all my 10 teams so thought I'd better do a team without them in case they get injured.

Report Numismatist November 29, 2020 9:51 AM GMT
Thanks Soul Dancer. Backed him at 34 on here but my book was already on the retreat having backed Copperhead and De Rasher Counter in September. Only cleared a few quid.
Copperhead ran like a horse with a problem at Wetherby and backed up that impression here. Tried to jump off handy but didn’t meet a fence and couldn’t lie up. Don’t think we’ll be seeing him again for a while.

Well Played Numismatist / Metro John and all those that kept the faith.

Go a long way to find a better round of jumping all season,electric at his fences.

New course record according to Racing Post,possibly a reason for some poor runs from a few.

Danny Whizzbang was beaten after a few fences,Ardlethen flattered to deceive,but ran ok.

Wait and see what mark Cloth Cap gets for that,Aintree being touted,we will see.

As for some of the Tizzard horses,you would hope they highlight a problem in the yard.

Happening a little too frequently with good class horses,not a great advert for the sport long term.
