    Is contesting a graded race that important to ITCF chances? It didn't stop Menorah winning the Supreme in 2010.

    I don't see it as a negative at all. He's done all that has been asked of him but I'm far more concerned about HF's poor form and (to a lesser extent) the lack of a recent run for ITCF.

    ITCF has trained with the Supreme in mind all season and has beaten what was put in front of him convincingly whilst showing a nice turn of foot. I would have liked to see him up in class possibly the once but Harry Fry and Noel Fehily have both come out and said he doesn’t take a lot of hard racing well yet and by there own admission he was slightly over when he finished 4th im the Aintree bumper last year. Your taking a chance that Fry will have him 100% on the day but he knows the horse best so I’m inclined to trust him. As FM said Frys recent poor form is a worry but there’s still four weeks for him to get firing.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to know which Fehily would ride if he had a free choice!

    FM,
    One could say he's dodged all the decent trials. Good luck with him, but I can't have him at all.

    The race at Kempton is historically a good trial for this race and one of the key reasons that I like him for the Supreme.

    To be honest, I wouldn't be in a rush to back at his current price because he'll probably be as big, if not bigger, on the day.

    I’ve drawn up a wish list. One of them is running in a graded race - obviously running in a graded race doesn’t mean the field are any good. It just something I wanted to see ITCF achieve his year, or beating a decent horse

    I like the horse.... l like the way he won his races this year. There are plenty of positives about him...
    would I back him now at 8/1, properly not. I seriously think he’ll place here but will win at aintree in April

    Kalashnikov got loads of positive mentions in this weeks review podcasts .... doesn't look like anyone has gotten him on their minds for this at the current price.

    The most interest "snippet" was that he won the Betfair off the highest mark since My Tent Or Yours.

    I like to have horses covered BUT 6/1 NRNB is shorter than I can take advantage of....

    I'm a little bit annoyed that I didn't take a NRNB price before his run in the Tolworth which would usually be my method .... has anyone got a good price about him?

    I’ve got 0.6pts on at 33s, nothing to shout about though as have had about half the novice hurdlers in training at one point or another

    I got 1.5pts at 33.0 on exchange (11th jan). Really likes his two wins prior to Tolworth
    Him and ITCF where the ones that catch my eye at the start of the season

    For some reason, I didn’t go in too hard on Kalashnikov for the Betfair Hurdle. Think I was out off by connections saying they didn’t want it too soft. Lessons learnt for me, if I like the horse at the start of the season and continued to follow it in by backing AP for supreme the. Bloody well back it hard for a handicap race where he was pretty well in - grhhhhhhh
