    Some great looking bets there !!, I can see already that this Thread is going to be bigger and better than last year !!!, ( if that's possible ). Loving it ,Loving it Loving it !!. I think i'd be wary backing Douvan in any race until it runs again , although you gotta be in it to win it obviously.

    I cant do Altior after this year run. Who to say he wouldn't of got beat if Charbel wouldn't of fallen. I reckon he was running better then Altior at that stage. Staying well clear of Favourites next season.

    Yorkhill and Douvan will be kept apart - Douvan's jumping might be under less pressure over further. I can see him in Ryanair with Yorkhill stepping up. Will be interesting to see where Yorkhill goes for rest of year - I wonder if he could step out of novice company and go for Gold Cup in Punchestown ?

    Anyone think CoC might be hard to train ? The Cross Country is often a last resort for horses who look out of love with the game. If they can keep him interested he could dominate but he has a lot of miles on the clock.

    Either that, or the possibility that he'll never be well-handicapped at Cheltenham again by Phil Smith after his Kim Muir catastrophe!

    You could very well be right though.

    The ones that interest me are:

    Neon Wolf for the Arkle 14/1
    Cause of Causes for XC 10/1
    Buveur D'air for CH 5/1 (I'm going to have a bet a week on him until the 5/1 is gone)
    Presenting Percy for WH at 20/1.

    Neon Wolf JLT not worry you? OR ground dependant. For a festival loser, 14s isn't big value? I'm still a believer in the horse but with the owners not having a whole lot of love for Cheltenham, Arkle/JLT doesn't seem an obvious difference?

    BVD'air ... I need to watch it back Looking at the rest of the odds DDS 5 y/o, Faugheen surely won't be coming back to his best now, same AP, No reason Min will come back from Chasing after looking as good over fences... Apples Jade, will stick to mares or go chasing, Neon Wolf is next... Chasing. Limini Not good enough, Melon, beaten by Labaik ? Yorkhill 25s, not quoted everywhere.

    Might back Yorkhill 1 pt E/W at 25s and just expect a non runner. Melon would tempt me in next, but only 20s and might go chasing, so..... after starting off thinking you're crazy, I think BVD is a good bet at 5/1, and I will start chipping away

    He's turned out to be an exceptionally versatile horse and now has three festival wins to his name and joins an elite group, he could easily come back and go close in the day one 3m handicap or why not take a shot at the Gold Cup, he wouldn't be last.

    It seemed everyone on the track knew the horse had been extensively schooled in the week leading to the festival, I think GE bought him over 8 days before the race and he had unlimited access to the course.
    Something that needs to be considered for next year....

    Might Bite 14/1 for the Gold Cup... too big. Around the same price if not bigger than Djakadam - that's ludicrous.

    I'd be seriously worried about the course for Might Bite. He's obviously talented but he's also a complete lunatic.
