    Yep, he seems to be a fairly laid back owner and trusts in his trainers. My comment was more based on 'If I was Joe Donnelly' rather than a prediction. As you say, Hendo will likely want to win an Arkle and a CH rather than fire two bullets at the CH.

    Would Angels Breath still be able to participate in Novice Chases next season? He’s spent most of this season out injured but did win 2 graded races (2&3)???

    I've read all that and it's just depend on how his schooling goes in the Autumn - but unless it's bad - I think he'll be aimed at the Arkle. Having already been PTP I can't imagine it's 'bad'.

    Hello,

    He won a race so no longer a novice.

    I think it is only harder to make the case for him staying over hurdles because all the talk and the pricing straight after the Supreme was about him going chasing. If that hadn't have happened then I don't think it would be at all difficult to imagine him going down the Champion Hurdle route. The ante post prices suggest it is definite he is going chasing but if that was the case why would Henderson not just say that? He must have said that initially and then thought it better to keep options open. The market has made no adjustment.

    Cheers Kev. That’s a shame, I think he looked very decent in his 2 performances this season. I will be looking to cover him where ever he goes next season if he recovers from his injury, I think he looked the best of Hendo’s novice chasers this season

    It sounded like a bad injury so I'd advise waiting until NJH gives an update - his price won't change dramatically if he's given the all clear for next season.

    ....Dan Skelton;

    Expects Third Time Lucki to take high rank amongst British novice hurdlers. Definitely start at 2 miles, might step up to 2.5miles.

    Roksana will race over 3 miles next season.

    Allmankind will try and avoid Goshen.

    I know they are very sweet on Third Time Lucki and those comments add more weight to the strength of this years bumper...
