HIGHLAND  CATHEDRAL

Ran a blinder over CD last time, considering it was nearly brought down/carried out at the 1st fence,
beating BEAU TRAVELLER, who was the gamble of the race. ( they meet again here).
HIGHLAND CATHEDRAL stayed on best up the long kelso run in, (despite making mistakes)  where it looked like BT really didn’t get home……with the ground soft here, it will not help BT & just don’t think it will stay.

HIGHLAND CATHEDRAL  was probably a fortunate winner  the time before at  Alnwick...led  & was headed by Monogram..who blundered at the last, where HIGHLAND CATHEDRAL took advantage & got back up to win….it  stays very well & has won with cut in points.
Monogram has since won a P2P..& finished a decent 2nd it a Hunter at catterick.
The time before (December)....HIGHLAND CATHEDRAL trounced Senor Alco 20L in a P2P....that horse has gone on to win 3 P2Ps so the form is fairly decent as it stands,

RAPIDOLYTE DE LADALKA, making its debut over reg fences, just got up to beat Senor Alco last time in a point,  &  finished 2nd to DONTPASSGO  (3 runs ago) &  on a line through those  horses, has a bit to find with HIGHLAND CATHEDERAL who also has the experience over CD

HIGHLAND CATHDRAL will take some stopping here with a clear round!

Agree with virgin.Dontpassgo was carried out in that race very early at Kelso and if on a going day could well give the fav some problems.

Yes I saw that line ....but now having had a full run and a new trip the race is clouded ....  maybe we should do the forecast (or reverse Mischief )

This race could also point the way for Trifollet who goes for a tougher race  in the 7.20  ....
Report koikeeper May 2, 2012 1:31 PM BST
Trifollet is very average & a stayer, yet had the pace to win over 20f at sedgefield....that was a poor event

Do you have any thoughts on Mayfair Lastchance in the 5.35 ....  I notice the jockey (Drinkwater) is 2/2 in this race but the trainer/owner info looks sparse Mischief

Confused

No chance...its point form it not good enough for this.

TBF Koi the Montauk Highway form isnt just as clear as it first looks.Dontpassgo was level weights with Highway and got beat 3/4 of a length on what i would call a non going day(hes a bit of a dog).Cathedral was getting 4lb when beating Montauk a shade over 18 length over a trip which is far from Montauks best and he weakened very badly in the final couple of furlong.Dontpassgo raced Montauk over his optimum trip whereas a step up is what Dontpassgo needed.
Take into account that Cathedral now has to give him 4lb and in theory thats a 8lb swing on the montauk form which on the face of it doesnt look enough but when taking into account how bad Montauk faded late in that race and how well Dontpassgo was running on at the deth at Sedgefield i think the step up in trip could just make the difference.

I understand you deal in facts which i normally do too but at 6/4 and 12s im willing to chance Dontpassgo.

Well that's put a dent in that form Trifollet got a lot on it's plate in  the 7.20 by the looks of it ....

agree with koi here, fancy highland cathedral, anything odds against is value in my book

The winner will come out of the first three in the betting & I'll be very surprised if Highland doesn't win it.The only doubt I have about it is the fact that it was fit in November,that's an awful long time to keep a horse fit.
