    Absolutely FM! Connections clearly stated soft ground wasn’t going to be in his favor but he got through it very well despite a less than ideal passage through the race, the distance back to very decent sorts like Felix Desjy, Fakir & Aramon only enhance the merits of TD’s run. He’s also clearly one Olly is happy to play the patient game with so I’d expect plenty of room for improvement over fences.

    He clearly acts around Cheltenham too which is a nice bonus!

    Let's slap Kemboy in.

    Highest rated chaser in training is good enough this far out and we can all be part of it when archie gets us tickets to Gold Cup day as the May Yankee lands.

    Also agree with RC too, that we should re-assess Benie Des Dieux?

    She's now 5/2 Mares and we are now not as confident that the Stayers Hurdle wouldn't be an option.

    As a betting prospect her price has gotten shorter but he chance of running in that race has changed and 5/2 doesn't represent a price I'd like to take to find out?

    Bet365 go 8/1 on DEFI DU SEUIL for the Ryanair Chase, which is top price in the market. If we place the Yankee with Bet365 then that horse is a fair price given his record at the Festival (2 Wins) and liking for the middle distance of the Ryanair.

    Defi Du Seuil has 9 lbs to find with Min and Min is 12/1 best price.

    I like DDS and he can obviously improve, but he's priced like that's a given.

    I’d be against Min personally. Can’t seem to get him right. Just one of those horses for me. Wouldn’t touch 12s antepost on him with a barge pole.

    Fair enough, I can see why he wouldn't be a pick - I just think he's better than Defi Du Seuil for this race - at those prices

    Novices are usually rated inferior to established horses after their debut season, but 2nd season chasers often they go on to win the Grade 1 open races the following year. So I would expect DDS to be related inferior to Min. But....I would hope that by March of his 2nd season he would be beating Min.
