    Unsure if this has already been posted, but to take the guessing out of which Nicholls horses turn up you can have him to win this race @ 3/1 with Skybet. Could potentially end up with 3 or 4 horses, including a potential favourite or 2nd and 3rd favourite plus others against the field.

    As the betting currently stands you would have the joint favourite (depending on which bookmaker you look at, but worst case 2nd favourite) in Wonderful Charm, joint 4th & 5th favourites in Pacha Du Polder & Caid Du Berlais, plus Virak, Unioniste & I'd imagine if Lac Fontana runs he'll be registered under Nicholls name as well. That is 6 potential runners, albeit I'd imagine he'll only have the 3 or 4 go, but the 3 at the head of the betting alone would be almost 99% running for me.

    Yeah I think 3/1 could be a very good price, even with the hot fav OTF last year they came for Wonderful Charm he got back down to 7/2, without OTF he would have went off a lot shorter, I could see them coming in again for him, so 3/1 for WC and his maybe 3 others looks ok..

    Interesting special. Would save a lot of time, however time is all I've got at the moment.

    Good spot on Virak scooby. If I add a third it'd be that based on the bonus and he's been a horse I've followed more than most at that level for no real reason other than coincidence

    Winners usually come from the PTP/Hunter codes and are often 9yo or younger.
    A recent developing trend is for horses who were unplaced in the previous years renewal winning the following year so worth noting anything that is returning after a failed attempt last year.

    Ignoring age Balnaslow could be that horse, and so could Ask the Weatherman....

    Balnaslow was pulled up behind morning assembly, who won very easily. Yet he's a far shorter price. Ptp/ hunter chase form seems to massively go under radar and I'm quite liking it as an angle for the future. Theres no reaction to any wins unless theyre televised.

    I thought 3/1 was decent. 5/1 seems an absolute rick! I aimgine Wonderful Charm will go off shorter than this on the day for a start! If only I could get a bet on with them
