    Would any one back Press Conference to win this race ? Then why back Annamix on that running he needs to find over a stone, Willie is good but this horse needs a miracle.

    800 days off, Mullin's seeming to have left it late to bring him out, and when he has he has ran well below expectations (hype) and well below what is needed to win a supreme.

    I agree, he'd have to improve by some way to win a supreme after that today

That defeat could be first time out, like Annamix or second time out like the others mentioned. Defi Du Seuil is a prime example, he got hammered by Lalor on chase debut, but now finds himself joint favourite for the JLT, after 1 win next time out. A horse is only ever as good as it's last run, and on that basis, I agree, Annamix was all 'hype' but the game isn't over just yet, though he now has more to prove than ever.
    Annamix hasn't proved anything yet though so that's why they can easily push him out. The novice chasers you listed have the residual class because they were all graded horses over hurdles, it's just if they transform that ability to fences. It's much more risky for the bookies to over react and treble their odds after defeat.

    Yeah, fair point.

    I guess I was looking at it from a wider spectrum, but ultimately he does have a lot to prove.

    It will interesting to see where they go, if he won you would have assumed the Moscow Flyer. Melon won a maiden in late January could possibly look for one in that area date wise

    Iíve seen people compare him to Senewalk which is absolute tosh.

    What surprised me most about Annamix today was that I expected that they would try and lead and dictate proceedings. Because this didn't happen I wonder whether they have just over hyped him or has there been problems with his training which we are not aware of?

    Taken the punt on annamix on the exchanges at 25’s, expecting some race fitness will improve the horse. Slick over the hurdles, not sure how much improvement is there but if he bolts up then market will rapidly change again given the combo

    Could anyone who is backing Annamix please make their case for him to me?

    He's ran 2 races, he's came 2nd twice...

    People are speaking as if he's cruised his debut on the bridal by 5/10 lengths (just like Douvan, Min & Vautour did...who were the real deal)

    The whole hype around this horse seems like a bunch of chinese whispers to me. It's almost a replica of Senewalk, unfortunately I was a bandwagoner for when he appeared on the scene and look where he is now?

    Judging by the form of Press Conference too, it doesn't seem like he's the brightest spark either.

    Annamix...not for me I'm afraid

    Senewalk came 6th, made multiple mistakes and was beaten a long way out

    Annamix has been outbattled and it looked to me like he ran out of gas, also jumped well which is encouraging if taking the view he needed the run

    I’m not putting more money down but I’m not giving up all hope

    I think Press Conference is being given a bit of a hard time tbh. He's had 2 runs over 2m, finished 2nd in a NH Flat race against a horse that finished a neck 2nd in the Cheltenham Festival bumper, and also won against a horse that had plenty of 'hype' surrounding him.

    His 2m form is not bad at all. His seasonal debut was over 2m 4f, and he hasn't looked a stayer, so the only reason I can see him being put over that distance was to get him beat and a reasonable price when they drop him down to 2m which worked a bloody treat today!

    Why I can't give up on Annamix? Because I missed out on Summerville Boy, all bar a free bet, because he got beat in 3 of his races prior to the festival, and that bit me in the backside, one run for Annamix won't make his season, he deserves at least one more chance, just because he is Willie's and is 'expected' to win every race leading up to the festival, does not mean it will happen, and if it was a horse trained by anyone else we'd give it another chance after 800 days off a track and only being out battled on the run in.

    I am not backing him again for the race but certainly not cashing out my bets with him included in.
