    Just snaffled some 33/1 Invitation Only. Thought that was an excellent performance and he looks a thorough stayer. Imagine the 4 miler will be an option but think he's classy enough for this race.

    I thought I had just got in too quickly for them Kev! But having seen them shorten him for the JLT, but leave him at 33's for the race.... yes i am now!

    Couldn't fancy him for the JLT myself TBH.

    No I couldn't see him reversing hurdles form with DD really.... I think 33/1 is a fair price, I saw it like you did....

    Some WPM quotes re Invitation Only Kev! Screams RSA horse all day to me...

    After race at Gowran Park Sat, 26th Nov, 2016 (1st) that was a good jumping performance, and we'll look for a novice now around Christmas. He’ll have no problem going up in trip and we think he stays all day, and I was also delighted to see him show that turn of foot. W P Mullins

    After race at Gowran Park Sat, 26th Nov, 2016 (1st) He's another point-to-point horse and he seems to improve as the season goes on. He's done that for the last two years. I'd say drier ground suits him but it will be good to get him going and hopefully he can get off to a good start. W P Mullins

    After race at Punchestown Thu, 28th Apr, 2016 (1st) he looks a decent sort - he's a stayer and will go novice hurdling next year. W P Mullins

    After race at Navan Sun, 13th Mar, 2016 (1st) He's done a lot of good work at home. He's a galloper and it's a pity we didn't have him ready in time for Cheltenham. I'd imagine he'll go to Punchestown for a winners' race. He's a staying chaser for the future. W P Mullins

    He's beaten Any Second Now almost as easily as Monalee did so the price differential between them two seems wrong to me. By Flemensfirth as well, so 3m likely to suit well.

    Invitation Only leads Any Second Now at the last
    İHealy Racing Photos By Alan Magee
    Invitation Only got his chasing career back on track when taking the Mervyn Gray Construstion Beginners Chase at Navan.

    The Flemensfirth gelding was held in very high regard before things unravelled a bit in the last 12 months, and the point-to-point winner fell when sent chasing at Punchestown last month.

    However Paul Townend popped him out in front in this 2m4f event, and the 2/1 chance jumped well to make all.

    Willie Mullins’ charge was challenged early in the straight by well-backed 10/11 favourite Any Second Now but shrugged off that rival before the final fence.

    He kept on strongly on the run-in to score by four and a quarter lengths, with Moulin A Vent plugging on a further five and a half lengths adrift in third.

    Townend said, “There was no-one anxious to go on so I said I'd let him pop away. He jumped spectacular, I thought, down the straight from the fourth last home. He had a good look early on and learned from his mistake the last day. That's what you like to see with novices.

    “They can all fall. His schooling had been good and it probably just opened his eyes for him.

    “We got racing good and early and were quickening the whole way down the straight. I was very impressed with him. I didn't think we hung around and I quickened up smarter than I thought we would in that ground. It rode a nice race.

    “I don't think three miles would be a problem to him but on that ground two-and-a-half is far enough.”
