    When do you think we will get a definitive answer on Altior?

    Perhaps I read to much in to stuff...

    I watched a preview evening where Rich Ricci out and out said Min and Douvan are 2 milers and they will go to the same race all being well and Douvan gets there. He was asked which one Ruby would ride and his response was, if he doesnt choose Douvan il be asking Willie why we are running Douvan at all.

    News broke that Douvan goes Ryanair and was reported on RP .. all the betting markets were changed to reflect the news, then later a tweet to say actually this is only a possibility..

    I watched Nick Luck interview Rich Ricci after news broke he said well the Ryanair has cut up and I definitely have to consider it as an option,

    I watched a preview evening where Ruby says he spent an hour and half contemplating if he takes the ride on Min or Douvan, he said and now they tell me Douvan goes Ryanair I dont know what the f-ck is going on..

    The next day, Douvan goes Champion Chase Ruby rides.

    Is it just possible, that Ruby actually decided to ride Min, and Rich Ricci threw his toys right out of the pram and decides to play hard ball switching Douvan, forcing Ruby's hand.. knowing that Ruby wont hear of defeat for UDS in the Ryanair and would not want Douvan interrupting that..

    The news quotes from Mullins after say, it was Rubys decision, he felt that Douvan would be better suited to the CC as this is has been his target..

    I find it strange that it is not reported anywhere what Ruby originally decided to run in the CC, and strange that if Ricci felt there was an opportunity in the Ryanair why hasnt he sent one of them there.. If "Douvan is Douvan" why did it take Ruby an hour and a half to contemplate the decision

    I honestly think there was something strange about this whole saga and it leads me to believe Ruby actually preferred Min ..

    Anyway, trends, speed ratings, ground, preparation for this race all still strongly point me towards Min and bookmakers still lay me 4/1 each way im taking that all day long

    I need therapy

    Patrick Mullins on Douvan, no switch for Townend. Interesting.
