I'd be guessing if I knew what was behind him but has done everything effortlessly so far this year. Beat the former Mullins runner Sambremont by 8 lengths in his point before that race. Approx 35 lengths behind was Aupcharlie who does have previous in this race - 6th in 2016 and 13th in 2017.

    Staker Wallace the other who interests me. Derek O'Connor rode in the Hunters Chase at Leopardstown in February in only his 4th ever start. Finished just 7.5L back from Foxrock and On The Fringe. Could be Bolger's next hope for this race over the next few years and will only be 7 years old in March.

    Both too short really for me this far out but I do prefer to go for a horse that comes through the ranks in this sphere rather than a former high class chaser converted.
    Your first paragraph sums up why I made him a bet in the OP for the other threads far better than i would’ve described.

    WH have trimmed him in to 8/1 now.... you've got them running scared MoM

    THis is a race where I definitely am not in my comfort zone. Salsify and On The Fridge have been kind but they didn't take a lot of finding

    I've watched as many of burning ambitions races as I can this morning and can defintiely see the case... I have no real way of understanding the PTP form but I like what I've seen!

    I like Wonderful Charm.

    He could be Paul Nicholls best chance of a festival winner.

    Ran well last year.

    My only concern is that The Dentist could be on board now that his father is a co owner.

    The Dentist won a Gold CUp over C&D so that wouldn't be a negative really compared to plenty of the jockeys!

    A cyclist was a jockey one year....

    Has anyone heard any plans for Foxrock, I cant seem to find anything. Hed be a strong bet if I knew he was going for this, I believe he will qualify this year unlike last year.

    Venitien De Mai (FR)*8, b g 11-9*(Ann & Alan Potts Limited)*

    Really interests me for this. Is he qualified. I think so.
    Has better collateral form than burning ambition

    *******,,
    Burning ambition is winning with something in hand, his form is not the strongest in what he's beat but its ok and hes doing it well. I missed the boat on his orive as only just started lolking at this race. Alot of the remainder ie two rockers are all beating each other in slightly more competative events.

    Young hurricane would be a lively outsider.

    And Sydney Paget seems to be a fair yardstick over in Ireland. For the likely big prices.

    Has anybody heard anything about It Came To Pass for Jim Culloty? 2nd in a Point behind A Decent Excuse (who beat Venetian De Mai NTO) in his only run of the season so far, but I'd be interested in him for the Foxhunters again.

    I was on him in 2016 at nice prices and he went off at 9s. You could see Brian Lenihan was sickened when he fell. He was travelling really well at that stage and he was solid in running in the betting, from what I can remember. He's still only 8, half bro to Lord Windermere and connections love a gamble! He had a prep run in February 2016 so something similar could be on the cards? No price available as of yet.

    Recall culloty saying last year that it came to pass had lost his confidence Jumping fences after his fall at cheltenham the previous year
    Could be interesting if they have nursed him back
    The Foxhunters at the Dublin festival is usually a good guide
    I expect Foxrock,On the fringe,Staker Wallace and a few others to run in this
