Just being discussing this race on Twitter and my question, like the guys I was talking with, is who is backing Politologue? Is anyone here a player at 5's (best price with Paddy Power and Betfair, shorter elsewhere).

I wouldn't be surprised if that price did drift on the day but I wouldn't be a player unless he was a real price and I mean 16-20/1, just don't think his form is strong at all.

Altior is the clear favourite without even running this year and Min has stepped up today putting him firmly in as 2nd favourite but I have to feel a big price could get involved. Special Tiara I've already discussed but I'd rather back a horse like Gods Own (if he comes here, could go Ryanair) than Politologue.

He’s won every race when going right handed. His only left handed victory was at Auteuil, although he was probably unfortunate at Aintree.

However, he’s just a much better horse going right handed. It’s like Bristol De Mai at Haydock - some horses excel in certain conditions which, for one reason or another, suit them perfectly.

Cheltenham is not Politologue’s course

After listening to Rich Ricci yesterday I got the impression he’s favouring the Ryanair with Min if Douvan is fit.

I personally was impressed with Min yesterday and I would rather be on him at the price than Altior. He seemed to settle better yesterday under David Mullins just of the pace. He looks a better chaser than he was a hurdler, and he looked as if still had plenty in the tank yesterday if he needed it.

IMHO we won’t see Douvan without a prep run, and this leads Min to go QMCC. Also worth bearing in mind there’s UDS in the Ryanair more than likely too.

Superb from Altior today, just held together then over the last and whoooosh!

Brings me back to Politologue, he has eased in the market after that but even a best price of 10/1 doesn't interest me.
