    That's the plan.

    Iv a few quid on at 20s ew and I asked the owner 1st.

    I cannot wait to see If The Cap Fits tomorrow.

    I only have "free bets" on at the moment in singles, but they were at 40/1 so he's a nice winner.

    Agree with scooby, I feel he needs to be winning this well tomorrow to have a chance of winning a CH

    He isn't priced up on his form tomorrow, he's priced up on the hype surrounding him - I am a little surprised I haven't backed him with any real money but in reality the CH market has been one to be cautious of because of Samcro and I'm still a big fan of Buveur D'Air.


    As a fairly blanket rule I don't like backing the horses that come out of the juvenile year - I think the ratings they get are hugely inflated and even the "exceptional" 4 year olds seem to flop. I know Katchit won a CH but it was before my time so until lightning strikes again I just want to see it before I really believe it...

    I also think WHAD is priced up as if he won the Triumph, and not the Aintree race that'd have suited him way more (in regards to the CH market, not so much for tomorrow)... I don't have We Have A Dream down as a credible CH contender at this stage... but if he slams tomorrows field I'll obviously have to re-asses. I'd take him on tomorrow though for that reason.

    Katchits CH was a port renewal and Sizing Europe had it in the bag before sadly going wrong.

    Big shout. I'd be confident he'll get turned over by ITCF. Player if he wins convincingly though.

    The stats make winning the Elite Hurdle pretty much the kiss of death for the Champion Hurdle.
