    Maybe not but it should surely come into consideration as high sided horse boxes with be traveling miles to get there, in storm conditions.

    Precautionary Inspection to be held on Saturday 15-02-2020 at
    08:00 Given the forecast of high winds, we will hold a
    precautionary inspection at 8.00am. The forecast rainfall is not
    a cause for concern.

    ...proper rain has arrived in the North-West (for Haydock) now.

    Have added discorama @ 25-1 before he qualifies at the weekend. Class & festival form proven, not a lot to not to like.

    I concur! Though watching him get edged out by Le Breuil (or, let's be honest, by the Codfather - what a ride) still pains me.

    I can't remember if someone mentioned it in passing on here or whether I read something where Nolan said he's likely go this route but I managed to get 45s (boosted from 40s) with Hills for small bit ew a couple of weeks ago. Big risk he won't even get there I guess (though I think it's a max field of 16 for the qualifier next Weds at Punchestown? If so that helps), but happy to let that ride rather than go with the 14s / 16s NRNB that's around now.

    Great price squigsy! Annoyed I've missed this as big fan of the horse.

    Just added him at 25/1 myself. Happy to take the risk over 14/1 NRNB. Think that's a huge price for a horse with his Festival form... and some top additional top class Chase form to boot.

    ...not sure about the weather elsewhere, but I’ve been out and the storm hasn’t hit the North-West yet (for Haydock). Difficult to see what an 8am inspection will achieve unless they go entirely off the forecast.

    They’ll probably defer a decision for a few hours, it’s perfectly fine at the moment.

    I know, I thought 2 & 1/2 miles was his limit over hurdles so to see him stay best up the hill was devastating!
