Houx Gris 3/1
Duffle Coat 9/2
Adagio 6/1
Elham Valley 8/1

“Gordon Elliott should find out on Wednesday whether he can have runners in Saturday's Grade 1 Coral Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow, with the Irish government expected to extend its travel ban to Britain due to rising coronavirus rates.

The travel ban that was initiated on December 20 prevents any non-essential movement from Britain to Ireland and is seemingly set to be extended until at least Friday night.

Elliott has the unbeaten pair Quilixios and Duffle Coat entered for the Grade 1 contest on Welsh Grand National day. Horse Racing Ireland chief executive Brian Kavanagh on Tuesday did not want to pre-empt the outcome of the impending government deliberations.”

I fancied Nassalam for this race before the above news, he is an intended runner and goes on the forecast ground - interesting to see if he will be anywhere close to 5/4 if the Elliott pair are unable to travel over. Alternatively, if you fancy another horse, there could be a bit of value there ....

Amazed that Nassalam is so short but how much of that is because of doubt about non runners. It would be a terrible price if it was subject to rule 4 deductions. If both Elliott horses are able to run I would expect him to be around 9/4 or longer. Duffle Coat has destroyed GB opposition including giving 5lb and a 5 length beating to Adagio and the stable seem to think that Quixilos is better than him!

No Irish opposition so Nassalam is around evens. That is a lay for me as there are some decent sorts against him, notably Adagio.

got that right. Adagio would be very hard to beat in the Triumph if Elliott's can't run.
