    It'd enough to put me off selecting him in a yankee though to be honest, as there is some doubt!
    Yeah, I have doubts but Native River also went for the Albert Bartlett before taking on the 4 miler.

    My main belief about him going for the NH Chase is the way he won the AB, on soft/heavy ground, and stayed on well up to and even at the line, suggests to me the NH Chase would be well within his compass. It will be between the 2 no doubt, unless they fancy the stayers' but don't see him winning that.

    Pretty sure I read they are going chasing... I think he was put off the 4 miler because of Native River though..... when Derek O'Connor was booked then jumped off to ride the eventual winner Minella Rocco.... in fact, now I think about it, I remember hearing him say something along the lines of the only way he;'d run Elegant Escape in the 4 miler is if a top jockey approached him....

    Yeah I remember him saying that Kev. It is a waste of time without a decent jockey tbf to him! You need all you can get out of a horse over that trip. May go against him running in the 4 miler now you've brought that back up!

    Yeah that's swayed me firmly back to the RSA for him, where I think 33/1 is a fair price about a festival winner.

    The level stakes of previous festival winners would see you in decent profit over the last few years (and I'd imagine much further back that we checked)!
