    Didn't think he would step him up myself, but IF NH really rates AB & MF ahead of him I guess it makes sense, given JP also brought FD to run in the race now.

    I like CP, as you may remember (or not), and think he could definitely be a player in the Ballymore myself.

    Very surprised at Champagne Platinum coming here rather than the Supreme. If JP wanted two in this race surely youíd have sent Champ and Birchdale

    Any thoughts on Beakstown for this race? I was very impressed with his last run at Warwick and originally had bet him in the AB but covered him now in this race at 14’s. Any thoughts on his chances in this race? Can he win it??

    Originally said after Warwick they were going to swerve Cheltenham this year, what’s changed their minds? I’m a big fan though, he’s be on my mind as a back up for battleoverdoyen.

    Aah balls, I didn’t know that was the plan, Beakstown is now 13’s from 15’s but he may still be participating?? I’ve got him in a NRNB Lucky 15 so will wait to see what happens closer to race

    Hard really to justify that as a reason though... he may he beaten absolute muck, or been left at the last, or only just scraped home.

    I wouldn't say on the track he's looked like a step up will suit him personally... but of course the pace of the Supreme/Ballymore may well negate that.

    Slight detour, but I should probably make more of an effort to check that PTP wins myself actually with more novice hurdlers... I generally just assume a win is a win and therefore worthwhile! No idea the strength of it if I was being critical of myself. Don't have the time though for that at the moment... probably wouldn't gain enough...

    He's definitely been mentioned as a chaser in the making on more than one occasion. That'd usually put me off an outsider in a grade 1 novice.

    Cheers Kev, all noted

    Not overly surprising as he has been talking him up all season but #AskOlly thinks Brewin'upastorm is his best chance of a Festival winner. Also said he has schooled well since and is fine for the Ballymore after his fall LTO
