    Size isn't everything. Clumsy over a hurdle often translates to clumsy over a fence. I'd much prefer a horse who didn't respect hurdles but notices the difference in fences. Unfortunately, this isn't apparent until they go over fences.

    Yes agree but I think you can give him another chance or two. He jumped poorly at Cheltenham, so if he does strengthen up and jump even slightly better he should be going close.

    He reminds me of a police horse!

    Beakstown will probably win a big handicap somewhere on decent group (Paddy Power Gold Cup?)
    As has been mentioned I imagine Galvin will be plotted up for a handicap chase
