So the feckin in 4 miler is not the only other option.

Report The Gotchee January 10, 2015 12:02 AM GMT
Lean Araig e/w (should be around 10/1)in the 3.30 has been crying out for this trip. A steady improver who is a half brother to three black type performers who have excelled at this trip (3 Miles), ran well at the Xmas meeting at Leopardstown and is in here on a very fair mark. He can be a bit novicey at his hurdles is the slight negative.

I think Turban E/W is the best treated horse in the last. His best hurdle mark was 141 and he is in here off 135, his current chase mark is 151. He has been making mistakes over fences on his last three runs so this may be a bit of a confidence booster. On all known form he is the best horse in the race.

Report Bigwillystyle January 10, 2015 10:01 AM GMT
Lean Araig has no chance off 116 in his first handicap.  Awful placing of a horse by the trainer.  Biggest problem with most of these fellas is they can train but cant place them.  Horse should have had a few quiet runs and be entering handicaps off mid 90's.
Another gem of mine and you will rarely lose money on it is to lay horses who have fallen last time out.  You can place lay Turban quiet confidently.

Report dj876 January 10, 2015 5:22 PM GMT
The opening race is the race where will you most likely get at least some give in the ground with the current watering policy. Difficult not to be very taken by that performance today but at 5/2 favourite for the Supreme now.

Douvan's four races in Ireland and France have been on soft/heavy ground but you would probably have more ground concerns for Lami Serge who was well beaten when with Guillame Macaire on the only occasion he encountered good ground. Interesting to see Alvisio Ville hurdling again and could be JP's main representative. WPM is not averse to running multiple challengers in the supreme compared to some other races.

Mullins said: "He did that nicely. He jumped and galloped and did everything that he does at home. He does things very easy.
"That race on paper looked stronger than the one Vautour won last year. I don't think ground or trip make any difference to him, and I'd imagine he'll go straight to Cheltenham now."
Report dj876 January 10, 2015 5:24 PM GMT
Mullins quote refers to Douvan today and Ruby's below.

Walsh said: "He did it very well. He travelled well, he jumped super. They were probably stayers he beat but they're decent enough horses, it was a good performance. He has the size and scope to be a beautiful horse next year - when he fills into his frame, he'll be some horse.
"He has a lot of natural ability and hopefully we can keep him right and going the right way and get him to Cheltenham in one piece.
"He's a very good horse, I'd say you could go any trip with him, two, two and a half - I doubt you'd have to go the Albert Bartlett but either of the other two (Supreme and Neptune) wouldn't bother me."

Happy memories of Portrait King last year (Eider Chase in Newcastle).....remember pa lapsy ?


CAN WE REPEAT THE DOSE Devil
Report Catch Me ifyoucan January 10, 2015 10:26 PM GMT
Portrait King, whose last win was in the 2012 renewal of the prestigious marathon Eider Chase at Newcastle, was a remote fifth entering the home straight but found bundles of reserves and in the end saw out the trip best of all, staying on for a five and a half lengths win over Rogue Angel.

Following the win, trainer Maurice Phelan stated he's had a lot of problems and has done a tendon and two pelvises all on different occasions.
He'll come back for the three and a half miles race here in about three weeks which he won previously. All he does is stay and gallop.

Also see "£231 Traded At 1000" on racing forum !

Ha Catchme, a very unlikely looking winner turning in,it was easy enough in the end, Won it off 131,probably will get 5lb for that,7lb be a bit harsh imo,English handicapper could do anything,137 would be my guess. Even so you would still think it can be done off that on today,one to keep an eye on anyway. Good for Mr Phelan anyway,small trainer with only a few horses.

Not too chirpy i,d say Frank,think that means a £115 matched,6 figures down the swanee,though he must have a huge bank and doing it all the time.Hindsight is wonderful but the front two horses were dead on their feet from a fair way out. could never have the nerve myself for long odds on backing,too much at risk for little reward.
