    Interesting to see we have three different horses in these Yankees already for the Gold Cup and the season hasn’t yet started. Also surprising to see that of the four major races, it’s Altior and the Champion Chase with the least entries from us with just one (March).
    Don't forget there are 10 festival handicaps where markets are not formed until well into the season and finding a fancy for one of these races is just about impossible 7 months out, so I expect every monthly yankee to focus on the championship and novice events until the New Year.
    This will mean duplication and contradiction but that's unavoidable...

    As ridiculous as it may sound, I have an early fancy for the handicaps on day 1. Even asked for a price on one of them.

    It's certainly not ridiculous to have a view but a horse rated 145 now may well be 160 come March and either doesn't qualify for the 'caps or connections have a stab at a championship race.
    And we know horses will be declared for multiple races and picking out a likely target this far out is riddled with risk...

    Totally agree Ista, that's why I haven't pulled the trigger at 33/1.

    I wasn’t complaining. Just thought it would be interesting to see which races we have a few selections in even with 7 months left to go - such as the Gold Cup with 3 horses already.

    I think you'll probably get it within 3 guesses Kev.

    There isn't a market so I requested a price from William Hill. The race in question is the Ultima and he's a horse I know we have both been keen on (and have backed?) in the last 2 festivals.
