    Just clearly wasn't footpad day.
    and also, if Footpad is a top class 2 miler, why was he getting outpaced and niggled with Tycoon Prince even closer to him? Stop being silly.

    No-one is forcing you to back him at 33/1.... I haven't advised a bet at 33/1 either.

    Its not being silly at all. It's common sense footpad diddnt run his race. And st calvados beat the ones behind him which are a limited bunch In tycoon Prince and arkwisht who's a dour stayer.

    Great field might be a spanner for St Calvados if they both line up.

    It's common sense Saint Calvados didn't run his in the Arkle

    So 1-1. I don't see how anyone could be certain Footpad is a better horse than Saint Calvados.... one was 50/1, one was (can't remember, short though!)

    I don't think a lot of good horses will run their race first time out this season due to the weather etc...

    A lack of good runs would back up many trainer comments about not being able to get out on grass.

    Yeah, Saint Calvados would need to prove he doesn't need to lead or can jump alongside another front running type to elimate any of those worries.

    Can't imagine SC gets an easy lead ever again?

    If you think that run would beat footpad in any of his other runs with tycoon Prince and arkwisht sat there. I can't comprehend that.

    But at 50s ew you've a decent bet there.

    wouldn't that be the same for them all though, and I'd expect the bigger trainers to have more grass

    This is like bald men fighting over a comb. Pointless.

    No horse has yet shown anything to suggest it beats Altior over 2m at Cheltenham up that hill. If it’s heavy like last year or bottomless, then maybe. But on decent ground, Altior surely has everything held. His turn of pace in the last 2-3f when he turns on the afterburners is different gravy. As STD said in one post race interview, “he’s a freak”.
