After the conversation I contacted 365 and got them to price him up for the market and they gave 50/1. I think that's a pretty fair price and Ive taken that. I don't see why a speed track like Haydock will be a big problem for him and I really like the look of that bet at that price now we know its Plan A
    Yeah thanks for sharing that billy - music to my ears hearing that. I've already got a couple of points on Might Bite for the Triple Crown at 40/1 thinking that was a good price so i've added a couple more points at the 50/1 .

    All fit and well I fully expect to see Might Bite lining up in the Gold Cup with the 1m bonus up for grabs...(though I expect Cheltenham to be by far the toughest test for him)

    It makes loads of sense to me to take that 50/1. I agree Haydock should suit and we know Kempton does. If he has two legs in the bag they can't have him at anywhere near the price he is now and you're in a smashing position.

    I already had 0.5 points on but have just added 1 pt at 50/1 now. Thanks billy

    Really looking forward to seeing Mite Bite back on track, relishing a clash between him and Our Duke 👏🏻

    I hadn't had an antepost bet for next season until today, decided to have a play with 2pts on that 50/1 about Might Bite. I really fancy him for the KG, his time last year would've been phenomenal but for the fall and I think the 5s about him for that is big. Now knowing the Betfair is plan A I think he has a big big chance on the speed track at Haydock and he can go and wing every fence. That leaves the big one, I think itll be a huge test for MB but should he win the first 2 he's gonna be a fairly short price in March. At worst you can lay off for a free bet. Great price I think. Cheers Billy

    I haven't lost faith after the Champion Hurdle albeit that was disappointing and his Festival record therefore isn't as strong as it could be but he did well in his final face over 3m at Aintree.

    He is 7/1 with WH in the any race market. Not enough to tempt me in and in fairness he's fav in the JLT and RSA so not missed at all. Certainly too short in my opinion - even with the safety net he might not do well over a fence and come in to the Stayers reckoning.

    Yanworth for the RSA surely makes the most sense though... has improved for the step up...
    Personally i'd be keener on his chances next season if he stayed over hurdles. I'd be slightly wary with him having been kept over hurdles for an extra year.

    A little surprised he's fav for the JLT and RSA as well, just for the fact he's now been beaten at the last 2 festivals when a heavily fancied favourite both times - I thought that may have counted against him in his place in the market

    Massive fan of Don Poli and Champagne Classic looked for me a cracking contender for the National Hunt Chase next year so a big shame
