    Black Op in the JLT would be my preference if we are looking there.

    I fear the Kalashnikov will be Arkle bound now, but the others won't be dropping back in trip I wouldn't have thought!
    I watched 'This Racing Life' earlier on RUK and Amy Murphy said that Kalashnikov will start over 2 miles but if Jack says he needs further after any of his races then he'll be stepped up in trip, or words to that effect.

    I agree though, the Arkle has to be favourite as a festival target

    I feel Kalashnikov is Arkle bound baring one or two underwhelming performances over 2m in the winter. Vindication is one Im keeping a close eye on too. JLT type maybe.

    What was the injury that cut short Vinndication's season?

    Was he not just ‘put away’ after the Sydney Banks with a view towards this coming season FM I think. I could be be wrong.

    Thanks Sean. I had it in my head he picked up an injury. I agree with you and Kev, he is very interesting and skipping the spring festivals with a talented novice hurdler is worth noting.

    Agreed hes probably had plenty of schooling over the bigger obstacles during the summer and the trainer previously seeing him as weak & immature whilst going unbeaten is definitely noteworthy. Beating the battle hardened Western Ryder 3 1/4 lengths is very decent form.

    Would prefer Kilbricken Storm to head to the 4 miler myself!

    So to answer your question, Black Op & Topofthegame.

    Can you see Kilbricken Storm going for the 4 miler though? He's won an Albert Bartlett over 3m, and Tizzard decided to send Elegant Escape who looked much more suited to the 4 miler for the RSA and came away with a decent 3rd place.

    It'd enough to put me off selecting him in a yankee though to be honest, as there is some doubt!
