can we hope they let mount benbulben go off in front tomorrow ..a little on the short side for this fellow , i really think with his customary jumping error sure to happen he'd be much better off out on his own making all , just like he did at tinahealy ....barry just might read this and heed it...if he jumps off in front , go to the front of the queue and get paid....

Actually think Marito is the proverbial...jumped well on its debut & the one that will be suited best to the 2m with ground no problem,

MOUNT BENBULBEN & JENARI need farther, & with both, the jumping leaves a lot to be desired....neither of them are naturals...just cant see then having the pace to trouble Marito & can see them readily outpaced at the business end...if they are still on their feet.

I think Mount Benbulben has jumped progressively worse with each run over fences. I couldn't touch him with his recent record. Mullins horse in the first didn't look no great shakes in Gowran but looks like he'll draw all the same. Interesting card but like Thurles the favs aren't bomproof in the main for me.

We could be in for a quality winner in the bumper by all accounts.

Upazo looks a lay in the first today,he looked terribly one paced at Gowran and the form was let down by the winner in Limerick.

mount benbulben clearly the best horse in the race..maybe best to keep him to hurdles for the moment.

Not Barry G's finest moment in the saddle, a lot to ask a mare to find 4 lengths after the last in any race

Got a bit baulked turning in when things tightened up,unlucky but you would have expected it to pick up the other horse after the last.

Gareth Malone was BRUTAL on the 2nd in the bumper.  Would have won with a jockey on board.

well lads i thought he'd got up from were i was standing , delighted to see the improvement in his jumping , i was speaking to someone close to the horse who told me they had done intensive schooling with him...it showed , still a little left to work on , he jumped a few to his right , if they can iron that out its all systems go....i'd say they were delighted with that performance.....

Just noticed he lost his irons inside the distance so shortie backers dodged a bullet there.

I hope you had a wry smile Workrider as you watched Mount Benbulben knowing everything and I mean everything you said about him turned out to be true.He obviously has been well schooled and it showed,thought he was ridden to jump round and would have beaten Marito if he was ridden into the last,I am not complaining as they were getting the horse to jump without putting it under pressure but he has some engine and ran a great race.
Champagne Fever was obviously sick so draw a line through that form.
Punchestown is right about Gareth Malone he was very poor on Totally Dominant,got the horse running and was taken to the outside by Exterminate but then he managed to get him to duck back under the whip,he followed this by going for a crazy gap up the inside,while bulldozing his way through there he lost his iron and just failed to get up.Grecian Tiger got tired in the dreadful ground and looked unimpressive but I feel he was in front too long and will be much better on better ground.
