i'm really looking forward to this card, and the champion hurdle is a cracker considering its only 4 runners..i got talking to a irish lad today @Donny and he was flying over tomorrow desperate to see our connor as he has a fairly hefty ante post bet for the festival..i told him im with jezki, but he was depressed after watching annie power..he said to me she,ll win the champion if she runs,..i don't think she,ll run in the race..for me she should go for the world hurdle..i don't think she jumps well enough for the 2m race?but theres no doubt shes a big player, im having a bet on MOZOLTOV 1.30 as I think the ground will suit him..the best race is the grade 2 novice imo 3.10 GILT SHADOW is my choice but only small as its a hot contest, the bumper is the race im not sure what I want to back, a friend of mine was @ mullins place this morning and there was a lot of confidence about their horse KILLER CROW, I want to back welds (it owes me) but I may just watch the race. good luck to all who have a go ..

Sterling Stuff is my nap in the Leopardstown 3.40.

I have seen his last two runs,he won his last chase with more than a stone in hand so should have no problem carrying the extra 16 pound.
They ran him in a hurdle at the last Thurles meeting where to put it mildly Phillip Enright had a poor day,he got the horse hampered took the wrong option twice was still coming to win the race when he managed to get himself unseated.

Tyner is a right trainer,Phillip Enright needs to ride a decent race as I feel Davy Russell could be breathing down his neck.

A really good days racing but sure to be very testing today.

1.30 Even though I would prefer if Mark Walsh was riding I still think if he goes off at a sensible pace Defy Logic will win this.
3.10 Moonshine Lad will be my bet of the day at 5/1. This horse could he anything and should handle the conditions. It is a step up in grade but I think this horse is up to it.
3.40 Sterling Stuff is an improver and may still be well in.
4.10 Nothing wrong with Windsor Parks last 2 runs and will take a good one to beat him.


Good Luck all.

Three I like today at nice prices are;

Quickpick Vic in the first. He wasn't fit enough the last day and I expect him to come on considerably for the run. I hope Ruby rides him with a bit more restraint.
I like Trifolium in the Arkle. I expect him to arrive late. There will be a lot of pace and in the heavy ground and I expect him to stay best of all.
Our Connor ran very well last time out only getting tired in the last hundred yards. I think we will see a much fitter horse today.

Backed Rock The World earlier at 7-2 in the first, but had stake saver on Stuccodor at 9-2 there now. I had good bet on him 1st time up, but ya couldn't give him away on here close to the off. Shaped like possible non stayer, but considering how strong he is today, maybe he was short of a gallop last time. Be surprised if anything else won.
Report world wide web January 26, 2014 12:58 PM GMT
Great days racing ahead.
placepot for me:
1st: Stuccodor & Rock The World
2nd: Defy Logic
3rd: Treat Yourself
4th: Hurricane Fly
5th: Wounded Warrior
6th: Wrong Turn

I see a few like Quickpick Vic in the 1st, I thought he was a solid lay at the prices and that I'd have Stuccodor, Rock The World, Pwwder Hound & Little Rocky running for me!

I also think Trifolium is a lay, Mozoltov is a potential improver, but it looks a match between Felix Younger & Defy Logic, with preference for Defy Logic only due to the ground.

Personally, I think Sure Reef is too short (but won't be laying it) - with Wounded Warrior a potential improver & Gilt Shadow and Moonshine Lad likely to beat Sure Reef

Good luck punting and enjoy!

Going against you in the Champion Oz.
Laid Jezki at 1.7 in match bet against Conor. I don't think Jezki is quite good enough to ever win one of these top 2m hurdles, but its conceivable that Our Conor might be. A lot was made of Jezkis hampered run to the last over Xmas, too much if you ask me. He didn't have the tactical speed required, whereas Our Conor travelled down to the last nearly as well as the Fly. He has 5 lengths to find, and is 1lb worse off, but will surely strip 7lb fitter today. I would just about have him fav in the match bet.

Backed Treat Yourself here.

Tremendous race with HF showing his battling qualities to win well in the end.Quite what to make of it it in relation to the Champion Hurdle is hard to know.Captain Cee bee was much to close for it to be rated as one of HF's best performances and Jezki was a bit keen for my liking.It all makes the Champion more and more difficult to solve.

Thanks Oz.
Suppose AP had to try something different today. He just doesn't have that bit o speed to carry him into a race like the other two.
I don't think any of the 3 can be truly happy there. I would nearly take Our Conor out of the race. Considering he put up by far the best performance of his juvenile year at Chelt, and Hurricane has never travelled like he can there, it might be him who troubles the two English horses.
But I would hazard a guess its Nicky Henderson, and NTW that who are happiest with what we saw today.

Yeah, to be honest I expected AP to sit second, and close enough to Cee Bee.
I suppose Cee Bee had the run of the race, and got a good tactical ride in that he was optimally paced the whole way round, to produce his peak running, so was never going to lose too much ground in a sprint to the line.

One thing I will say about Ruby is, he has a silver tongue, and will be instrumental in guiding Ricci and Annie Power to the World Hurdle rather than Champion. When himself and Willie get a hold of Ricci when decision time arrives, I have no doubt who will prove the most persuasive.

Wrong Turn looks very short in the next.

So have had few quid e.w on Mackeys Forge, and win bet on Knocklong, who should be much closer to the fav in the betting.

I know I have been critical of Ruby but he is the business on the big days. It's a pity Cooper got jocked off Our Conor. One thing is for sure, Dessie will have Our Conor cherry ripe in March. I remember Hardy Eustace use to get beaten around the new year by the likes of Mac's Joy and Solerina but come Cheltenham he was a different proposition. I am hoping it will be the same for Our Conor. The big danger, if the ground comes good, is The New One.

Our Connor is completely ground dependant and will definitely miss Cooper.

Why not have Our Connor cherry ripe today?  Big prize, big pot.

He only missed a couple of weeks training around the time of the Morgiana, never lame.  Close to being fully fit a month ago.   

Plenty of time to have him fully fit for today, I would have imagined.  I am not sure that I buy the story that you can only get a hoss cherry ripe once a season.  Should the Trainer not be told get him right for today, do our very best to win it, then lets worry about the next race(Cheltenham).

My head does be in a spin by the time it comes round.  100 different hosses spinning around in my head thanks to those god awful preview evenings.  I does be wound up to 90 and frequently let down as 4 odd favourites go in over the 4 days.

Contrast that with Aintree, which just joyfully arrives without any fuss or bluster or over-hype and is all the better for it.  More profitable punting too in my experience.

For those like myself that are members of the Jezki fan club the only glimmer of hope i think i can gain from the race is that Jessies horses clearly are out of form ... She had no winner over christmas and had one winner in January ( annie oakley ) ....  i thought both Rock the world and Jezki ran very free in the early parts of their races yesterday ...

I don t agree with all the Our Connor optimism on here ... Maybe people are reading too much into the fact he was 7 on the machine before the off and presume there would be more the next day ?? .....he had every chance of beating the fly yesterday , better jump at the last and if anything the fly was going away again at the finish .... The fly , The new one and My Tent ( if he gets up the hill ) are ahead IMO ...
So with what i would think  a below par Jezki and Captain Cee bee rated in the 140s finishing close up there should be a slight question mark over yesterday ...
The New One is probably the safest option at the moment ...long way to go though as ruby said yesterday there will be at least one horse a week falling by the wayside with injury from now on ...

Just read this thread now. Unbelievable tipping by The Gotchee. Good thread all round.

Dingle if I was a Jezki fan I'd take Sunday's race and forget about it altogether, a disaster from the start tactics-wise and I don't think he should be judged on it all. He's come out to a more reasonable price now too, was a bit short at around 7/1 beforehand!
