    PP must have the same opinion bearing in mind they pushed him only out to 12s from 10s, whilst 365 went to 33s. Can’t be that PP don’t like pushing them out as they were quick to stick TD out to 33s after his defeat yesterday

    With the run under his belt Trump will get revenge over AD next week. Was looked after the last time when coming to win the race and then blowing up. 33's is a mental price for the Arkle. An Ew gift.

    B365 - opened up
    Melon 2-1
    Fakir 5-2

    Will back Fakir but was expecting 6/4 melon & 7/2 Fakir - or thereabouts.

    They are trying to tempt us in with Melon.

    Quite surprised they are going back over fences with Fakir after two failed attempts in France. Thought they would go Churdle in an open year or even Stayers. Perhaps they are just giving him another chance over the big ones.

    The fences are completely different.
    The french hurdles are more like our fences.

    Would be a good performance Melon heating Fakir giving Weight. Thought Melons first time out record was poor but it's very good. Classy hurdler. Just hope he takes to big ones. Backed him again today as he could halve in price should he win.

    Melon is the first horse out this season that I’ve got a really decent bet on for Cheltenham, hope he takes to fences. Looks a very tricky race to start out in, it’s certainly no egg and spoon easy novice

    I have backed Melon for this last week with free bet, but if wins today could go short fav. So had another go with cash.

    that was flawless

    Obviously Fakir D'doudaries got weight today, they run them off levels in the arkles is that correct?
