Smad Place 3.00 Newbury 29th Nov
I cant see past this one.............has been placed in 3 G1 Hdls just over 4L behind Solwhit at Aintree...I see that as important as Aintree is a speed track & in this race Saturday U must be able to travel...........races are run at a good pace here & horses to the fore do well..........It has won 2 3ML chases (1 here) fell in 1 when clear (last fence) & was btn a neck in the G1 RSA 3ML+ at Chelt.This was run in a fast time although thats another positive it would have prefered softer ground
   The trainer has said that the horse (that runs best fresh) appears to have strengthened up during the summer 1234(5) around 7/1 barin accidents well leave with something

flat track should help him but think this might be too much of a stamina test for him in this grade

fingal bay had some very usefull form as a novice hurdler beating simonsig at sandown and as a nov chaser ran dynaste to 3l giving that horse 4 pounds ,had a setback and came back 0over hurdles and won 1st time up last season then won the pertemps at the festival off a big weight ,lack of chasing  expeireince a bit of a concern but has the form in the book to run a big race !.fingal bay e.way

Still going through the race, but, I have Merry King and Unioniste on my shortlist at the moment.

Holywell , just backed Merry King ,think it has a very good chance , well weighted having ran really well to finish 5th last year , and with the champ up must be worth a punt ...

I think both Fingal Bay and Unioniste could run very big races on Saturday.

always give the op sel a 2nd look as i have the utmost respect for them , i don't think snad place is very well h/c and is a victim  of his own consistency , merry down looks dangerous, but my idea of the winner is MIDNIGHT PRAYER  , will be staying on when others have had enough !  nice price ,
yes stable mate for me madge ! Wink

UNIONISTE  should relish the ground and ulcer problems have supposedly been resolved, likes flat tracks ,course winner , get involved 16/1

Merry King seems to fall short on the
big races.All wins were with Mclernon
on board,style of riding may suit the
horse better than AP.Wychwoods Brook
finished in front of MK when wining at
Haydock last season and is ony 3lb worse
at the weights.25/1 nearly twice the price
of MK.Williams has won this in the past,also.
Ballynagour is also got a good chance if staying
the trip,interesting that he bypassed the PP which
he was quite high up in the market and makes his
seasonal debut in this.
Ballynagour...20/1,both E/W.

Report bigblockhead November 28, 2014 9:30 PM GMT
Agree with the unioniste posts, massively experienced for a 6yo chaser with best years ahead, could make up into a gold cup horse so should be winning off his current mark , has won over course and won around this time last year over 3m1f giving Wishful Thinking a 7l beating at Aintree getting 4lb
has won first time out and goes on any ground, Fehily showed his worth on Conti last week so will lack for nothing in the saddle at current 19 on the exchange he's an ew steal if he stands up assuming he's over the ulcer problems from last year.
