Blatantly obvious and as are many on here, a huge fancy for this race if they can qualify him. Have absolutely no doubt this has been the plan from day 1 this season - with runs over 2m3 and 2m5, with then a recent 2m entry that was sadly not taken up.

    There's been plenty of doubt and debate on how the handicap cut off works - whether Glenloe could get an entry and run again before the weights or whether you need the 3 runs at entry stage.
    Having asked Rory Delarghy, he was of the view horses had until the Sunday before the weights (24th) but wasn't certain.

    However - Looking through lasts years entries and weights - it would appear that is correct. Both Step Back and LooksnowtlikeBrian had less than 3 runs over fences. Both having just the 2 runs at the time of the entry stage (entries closed 20th Feb). They were then removed from the race on Feb 28th when the weights were revealed for having not qualified.

    So it would appear Glenloe (and as a rule for any) can get his final run and mark after the entry stage

    But it's still cutting it fine to get the third and final race into him to get his handicap mark. Looking at the upcoming fixtures it would appear the only possible race he can run in

    Fairyhouse - Saturday 23rd February
    17.5F Beginners Steeplechase 5yo and up

    In the UK there could be 3 races he could line up that weekend if push came to shove:

    Kempton - Sat 23rd Feb
    2m4 Novice Chase

    Chepstow - Sat 23rd
    2m7 Novice Chase

    Fontwell - Sun 24th
    2m1 Novice Chase

    And that's on the basis he has until that 23rd/24th weekend.
    All eyes on the Fairyhouse entries then...

    Liam raised a possible race at Naas on the 24th as well as an option. Races are here for that day:
    https://www.irishracing.com/fixture?...8&prd=20190224

    There's no beginner or novice chase (only a novice handicap chase) but could he run in the 3:35?
    3.35WhatOddsPaddy? Steeplechase (Grade 3) of €46500.00 2m.

    If not it's all about finding that Codd / O'Connor / Mullins ride (and then if not the likes of Barry O'Neill etc)
    Good work Jono. I've been a bit slack on here the last week or two as I've had lots going on at work. I'm firmly on the Glenloe bandwagon! Also have Gun Digger backed any race, although I am expecting him to go over the intermediate trip (especially if Blow By Blow were to sneak in here).

    You need to try and open another 365 account. Pushed out to 28's

    He's my substitute for Glenloe.
    As soon as we know one way or another if Glenloe can race here.
    It's cash out and move stakes over to Tower Bridge.

    I added an extra 1 pt ew on Tower Bridge last night too at the 28s.

    I listened to the FFP Chelt review on my drive home this morning and Blake was adament that the ground had gone completlely against Tower Bridge in the Bartlett, but they were delighted with the run and there is loads more to come. Especially on better ground.


    He's got to be a NRNB play, he will be single figures if he runs I have no doubt.


    Already on Glenloe but can see both running anyway!

    Honestly thought Tower Bridge would be fav for this after yesterday, I cant for the life of me work out why they pushed him out, that looked about as perfect a prep prior to the release of the weights as you could have asked for. Not sure about Carter McKay, thought that was a strange run, maybe they are protecting a potential winning mark but Im far from convinced.

    Yes, absolutely.

    Jamie Codd. I don't know... I have absolutely zero doubts that Joseph / JP combo can have whoever they like really... Elliott with JP/Gigg won't rock the boat too much.
