maybe they want to bring him along slowly norekk. His seasonal bow hardly taught him anything.
What do people make of Deise Dan today? I've lumped on Bale O'Shea.

Experience for Dunguib.

Nore has a point. Given that connections said that they were targetting the Royal Bond, the Grade 3 For Auction last week in Navan would've been a stroll in the park and he would have had a week more to recover for the Royal Bond.

Was decent of PP to go 11/4 when only 15/8 elsewhere EMI.

big time punkha, they didn't even have him favourite. Lads were 6-4.
Report Frank The Tank November 14, 2009 12:38 PM GMT
Lads are also betting the race to over 130% so hardly a sign that they are the right price. More a case of them running scared after their beating 2 weeks ago at the hands of said connections.

Surely it has been well-proven in recent years that lightly-raced is the way to go to Cheltenham (assuming like most owners they want to win at the Festival)? P Nicholls will run Kauto Star twice before the Gold Cup. Dunguib now surely go for Royal Bond, PP Champ Novices at Leop at Christmas and Deloitte. And, god knows what else. At least five starts before March. Shaping up like an odds-against lay to me.

You're laying it based on the price and not ability/form.
Am not on at a price, so will leave alone.
If he wins the Royal Bond on the bridle surely they'll be tempted by the CH?

in fairness norekk his last two outings hardly amount to races.
Report norekk November 14, 2009 1:29 PM GMT
you can say that, emi, but he still had to be trained for them. he still had to be fit to race before the end of october. and then keyed up to go again three weeks later. and the races themselves. not looking like he'll be a fresh horse in march.

Caduceus is some monster price here, 9/2 with PP this morning, 27/28 here now. Stinks of non trying.
