    I like that you have your own thread, and honour your favourite horse with such bravado.
    And in recent times you've offered some rare glimpses of clarity and reasoned arguments.

    BUT ANYMORE POEMS LIKE THIS AND I'LL BE FIRST IN THE QUEUE TO SIGN A REMOVAL PETITION.
    AND NEVER USE CAPITALS UNLESS IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.

    Joe Tizzard, assistant to his father, said: "Elegant Escape is in good form and the plan is to run in the Charlie Hall.

    "He has summered well. He seems to have strengthened up and we are really looking forward to getting him started.

    "He is only a seven-year-old and hopefully he can progress into a Gold Cup horse. He wouldn't have to improve a lot to be a serious contender in a Gold Cup.



    The Tizzards sounding confident here. The Legend has strengthened. Al Boum Photo is already worried.
    This will be the season to end all seasons for the great one. Perfect warm up for Haydock.

    A decent write up ET.

    If he does drift I bet some people follow you in, but quietly.

    Warren Greatrex is a much better trainer of hurdlers than he is chasers. He has won just 4 graded chases compared to the Master Of The Chaser Sir Colin Tizzard who has won 48.
    Le Bague Au Roi is merely a decent mare who was found some nice easy small field races as a novice chaser. She is in the wrong hands and Greatrex wont be the first man to ever train a mare to win the Charlie Hall Chase. She is nothing special. Lostintranslation is only the tizzard gold cup 2nd string behind EE.

    I would expect The Legend to go off clear favourite on the day.

    Elegant Escape is the 2020 gold cup winner. Lostintranslation may get beat at Carlisle. The Charlie Hall is a walk in the park for the champ.

    That 9/2 will be a thing of the past tomprrow as The Legends price collapses and he becomes the new race favourite.

    That article is pie in the sky.

    ELEGANT ESCAPE could wear an eyepatch have a leg removed and still win pulling a train against the inferior level of animal he takes on at Wetherby.

    Had the Tizzard yard been in top form last March he would be the current Gold Cup champion. He was only actually 6 in last years gold cup as his true birthday is in april. The powerhouse is ready to peak this season and even if just running to his best then this machine could win by 10 lengths without trying. This is a very experienced top class chaser bullying an inexperienced mare. If it was a boxing match the ref would stop it at the 3 pole.

    Le Bague Au Roi backers will not sleep tonight worrying about whether Greatrex goes for the Carlisle race in the morning with final decs.
    The Carlisle race makes more sense as its an easier race and they have aklready beaten LOSTINTRANSLATION twice. The ground will be faster at Carlisle and its a much more suitable opening point for LBAR.
    No matter what has been said I wont be in the least bit surprised if she doesnt make the final decs here.

    I think the 100000 C Hall pot compared to the 30000 Carlisle pot might be a big factor. She could win more being placed at Wetherby than winning at Carlisle. She looked to me that she needed a trip in her last few races last season and was doing her best work at the finish when getting done for speed at Aintree so 3 miles will suit her better. She is 2/2 at Wetherby so we know the track suits whereas Carlisle is an unknown. My feeling is they will go Charlie Hall. She has had 11 races between October and February during her career and has won the lot so this is her time of year. I personally think she will run away with this race.

    I thought it was final decs today but they are out tomorrow.

    This Ballyoptic is going to be tuned to the minute for the race. He will be a tough horse to beat I fully expect him to deal with Le Bague Au Roi but I have a gold cup winner in waiting to sort out Bally.
