Morning all. Been reading this forum for a while, and all of the excellent contributions so finally decided to join
Not the best race to kick start my career, but one I am interested in this year. I wondered if anyone had heard anything regarding Alelchi Inois and Boston Bob. I saw an interview with Patrick Mullins a while ago and he mentioned both would be heading down the Banks route and be targeted at this race. However, Boston Bob hasn't been sighted yet, and Alelchi Inois has been running in Graded races ever since (and running pretty well!).
Cantlow aside, it doesn't look like there is that much depth, and I thought both could run huge races if this is indeed still their target. I know connections of Alelchi Inois have always had an affinity with this race with Uncle Junior and this fella could well take over the mantle. Bit worried that Paddy Power, with their history of getting things right from this yard, are significantly longest price on Boston Bob though.
Any thoughts? Cheers
