Just a thought at this stage.

    Interesting enough.

    How many does Willie let go that improve or end up being any good?

    I do remember Townshend being talked up at one stage (for those connections) - must have had injury problems.

    No plan yet for Townshend other than he will be entered at Kelso, Ascot and Wincanton next week, not sure of his target or even if he will go to the Festival so take NRNB

    We dont think Townshend is very well treated off 140 so wont be keen on a handicap chase off that mark. He's too low for a hurdle race at the moment he will need to get racing and win to make it into a handicap hurdle, but if your thinking of backing him def NRNB.

    Thanks Guys for the advice, very helpful as always. I'm usually keen on previous runners in this race (at least for e/w purposes and with NRNB).

    He's the one that Dynamite Dollars was a very short price against and didn't make it look particularly easy.

    Bit young and inexperienced for a Grand Annual IMO
