Hey brians - regarding being conned into backing, I bet Tiger Roll to be in the 1st 4 in what was a 6 horse race in the end and it was tailed off. It won the exact same race over the inadequate 2m5f only 2 years earlier at 25/1. So why shouldn't I expect a run? Why are they allowed to school? If it's not schooling, why is it "burly" - why come to the racecourse "burly"? And why make no attempt to use it's unquestionable stamina in the race. Held up out the back at sedate tempo with little effort in the end. I feel conned and I don't see why they get away with it. Some very small outfits have got into trouble for complete no-hopers at 150/1 apparently not running to their merits. Why do the big boys get away with it? Oh wait a sec.... I think the clue is in the question. Pocket-taling rant over - apologies for that. :)
Burly..........aka known on some sites as BBW............in reality Fat.

The cross country race will tell us of his chances in the National (my view is he has zero chance off 11-9 at 11 years of age) ....and not just his , Easyland jumped awfully on his last run at Cheltenham.
i would agree of that mark..... but hard hes hard to judge on them past performances, they have brought him to the racecourse fat as a pig.
