Re: Gold Cup - Friday 16th March 2018 (Day 4)

Gigginstown themselves aren't keen on Road To Respect on heavy ground. Was scratched from the Irish Gold Cup for better ground, and personally they way they've been talking, if it's still soft/heavy come Friday, they may wait for Aintree.

Re: Cheltenham Accumulator To Change Your Life

I've plumped for:

Arkle - Saint Calvados (7/2)
Ballymore - On The Blind Side (9/2)
RSA - Black Corton (7/1)
Stayers Hurdle - Sam Spinner (5/1)
Gold Cup - Might Bite 3/1

4,721 / 1

Re: Gold Cup - Friday 16th March 2018 (Day 4)

In terms of Killultagh Vic, he comes round the bend a length infront of Edwulf and is still at that margin at the final fence. He was travelling better, but quite frankly he would have needed to win that by a few lengths to have any hope Might Bite's standard. Now an LTO faller, which is a huge nega...

Re: Gold Cup - Friday 16th March 2018 (Day 4)

For all Killultagh Vic was in the lead, he hadn't extended from the one length he was infront of Edwulf off the turn. Either way, I think it's a poor renewal of the Irish Gold Cup as Outlander and Djakadam have comfortably proven they aren't up to the standard. I'm surprised and relatively delighted...

Re: Gold Cup - Friday 16th March 2018 (Day 4)

Now having had a look at the confirmed entries, I've now drawn up my shortlist based on a few key stats: There are three key stats in the long range forecast for me: Ran in a Gold Cup Before Almost impossible to retain a Gold Cup, only Best Mate and Kauto Star have done so in recent years and I thin...

Re: Epsom Derby 2017 - Ante-Post & Discussion

I am currently struggling to justify Crystal Ocean as short as he is for the Derby, or even being 3/1 for the Dante this week. His debut 2nd hasn't worked out well with 3rd & 4th beaten in maidens nto and the winner beaten off 81 in a handicap last month. He beat a subsequent winner last time out bu...

Re: Cheltenham Festival Tuesday 14th March Discussion

Be interesting to look at the sectionals in that. My initial reaction was they weren't going a strong pace, with the Mullin's leaders potentially trying to turn it into a sprint for Melon. Official time is 7 or 8 seconds slower than the last couple of years on Good to Soft ground. As far as I can te...

Re: Cheltenham Festival Tuesday 14th March Discussion

Few statistics I've cobbled together may be of interest: Supreme Novices Hurdle Horses with no more than one hurdle run = 0/37 ( Melon ) Horses beaten on their last start = 2/208 ( Bunk Off Early, Cilaos Emery, Crack Mome, Elgin, Glaring, Labaik, Magna Cartor & Pingshou ) Horses last ran in a Handic...

This sectional analysis gives quite a insight into the race imo: https://www.timeform.com/horse-racing/features/sectionals/sectional-debrief-festival-trials-day-2912017 The race was run at a good pace for the first half and then a strong pace for the remainder.

Re: Gold Cup - Cheltenham 17th March 2017 (Day 4)

The Gold Cup is the pinnacle and such a gruelling test that it often, in my opinion, 'breaks' a horse. We've seen plenty of horses recently win it or run well and that be the pinnacle of their career. Imperial Commander, Bobs Worth, Long Run have all failed to be as good following it. There is a str...

Last two season's Gigginstown horses by Mullins have won the following prize money in Britain: 2015/16 - £349,708 2014/15 - £141,266 Hardly insurmountable to overcome imo. One or two more decent races. Certainly not 3/1 from 6/4 extent. In terms of his fees, Mullins is probably looking to keep the s...
