    Triumph Hurdle 2018

    I was really taken with Gumball today , to lead and quicken like he did even though his hurdling could be better. Can only improve and trainer know time of day with juveniles.

    Not got nothing in book as of yet , though I am tempted to take punt on Apples Shakira who looks good tome looking on her french romp. Guessing game at this stage but am taken with Gumball.

    The 16-1 will last a few weeks now so will wait.

    Reminded me a little of Defi at Chepstow last Xmas with a couple of dodgy jumps but still powering away....

    It's far too early for me to consider a proper bet on the triumph. I usually wait until at least Christmas these days as I've had my fingers burnt more times than I care to remember.

    Forget the 16-1. Hills are a standout 25-1 and will boost to 27-1.

    Hobbs also has the JP McManus owned Demopolis so he could have a decent chance at retaining the Triumph. It seems JP McManus has gone all out again to win it again as he has a string of pricey juveniles spread across some powerful yards.

    Did you also clock his very round action ,ground wasn't that bad Saturday and he did that.

    Impressive start to his career , but like a few of you already mentioned I feel its too early to pin any cash to Gumballs tail just yet , plus alot of good ones still to come out.

    Haven't had a go on anything in this race yet but think JP will do all he can to retain this race, currently 3 in the betting that I'm likely to have some money on soon of his, one of them won very easily today in Espoir D'Allen, and also Demopolis, as mentioned above and Empreinte Reconce.

    Has anyone else had many speculative bets on this yet?

    I got lucky with Defi last year at 16's so chucked a point each way at Gumball on Sunday at a boosted 27-1..

    Be wary of empreinte reconse for this atm.
    Jp has plenty she's the only one who's still retains her novice status, goes for a bumper next. Id be of the opinion to put her away for next season
