    Thanks for the best wishes everyone. You will have seen how poorly he ran; it turns out he went from no ulcers on Sunday to grade 3 ulcers on Thursday morning. I was pretty depressed yesterday and was convinced that would be end of his racing career but, after talking to the vet and Peter, we are going to give it one more shot, at the Kerry National. We will be changing a few things but, even so, we will go more in hope than expectation. You can read more here: http://www.cheltenhamdream.com/blog-...g-out-swinging

    B.o.F ., Would it not be possible to give the Gastroguard and take him to the racecourse 3 days before the race , so that your'e
    clear to run on race day ?. ,.I presume there are stables available at the racecourse ?. In Any case , I wish you the best
    and hope the Dream comes true .

    Yorkhill 2m3 at auteuil.
    This is the weakest field he's ran against in a while running against an exposed bunch who out stayed him last time when he had no chance behind de bon coeur.
    He's been on the go along time and his jumping last time out was a little tentative imo. However this is by far the best opportunity he's been given this season. This is close to his ideal trip, and the only realistic chance he's had of being in the shake up.
    There's a fair run in at auteuil and due to his jumping preference theres every chance he will idle after he jumps the last alone to the left hand rail. As the French horses always go wide off the last bend onto the stand side. So If he is in front he might be one that looks all over the winner and ends up getting beat.

    Worth a watch anyway

    It's a very reasonable idea BC and i would not rule it out. My biggest concern, not knowing exactly what causes the ulcers, is if the change of routine for three days would cause him too much stress.
