    I think Notebook is great value. Yes, he is headstrong but he was headstrong at Leopardstown and he still won well. In my view Cheltenham came to soon for him following the DRF battle with Cashback. Moreover, horses tend to overcome those problems as they mature.

    I’m already on at 33-1. Is he better than Chacun Pour Soi? Probably not but that horse has yet to make the Festival and there is no guarantee he will in 2021. I think Defi will go up in trip and Altior will be 11 next year. There’s every chance Notebook goes off at low single figure odds.

    Game of opinions and that is what creates good markets from time to time, there was doubt as to how good he is in terms of ratings going into the Fez despite looking very good and now into open company.It's going to be very interesting next season to see if he "matures" and steps up another 10-12 lbs.

    ...disappointed I didn’t pick up on that. It’s a bet that gives a little insurance. If one or both don’t make the Festival you can still collect.

    Regards Topofthegame and the Ladbrokes Trophy I see his official rating has been wiped as he’s been off longer than 9 months. I think (although am not certain as seems surprisingly difficult to find this info), he was raised a 1lb to 164 for his defeat to LIT at Aintree. Novicey question but is it likely the BHA will drop him anything when they reassess? I see this is definitely something they can do but no idea how regularly this happens or when they do drop them typically by how much.

    From what I’ve seen RC a horse is rarely dropped for being off the track.
    For TOTG his rating is almost irrelevant, if he’s expected to be a credible Gold Cup horse he should shoulder top weight and win, and the race isn’t what it used to be, last years renewal was certainly poor and not sure much (bar The Conditional) came from the race to win much later in the season...
