    What colours do they run in?

    Robbante has just mentioned Bapaume 25/1 for this race with PP. Too short for me to back at this stage with the target a stab in the dark, but certainly a horse I'd want to look at in a bit of detail based on his good run behind AJ / Supasundae this season. Too good for the Pertemps despite the trip being more suitable?

    Sorry, completely missed jono's post in the stayers thread about it!

    On Bapaume - after that run I had him down as a decent chance in a handicap rather than this race. Quite liked him for the Coral Cup but not yet in the early betting market. Rated 146 after that run which fits in well. It would be a drop back to 2m5 but the race almost always produces horses that go onto contest 3m+ races later down the line.

    I was going through cracking smarts form today and I just assumed he would have a mark higher than 141. Unless he drops a pound he can't get in the martin pipe. So his only options would be stayers, or this race. He's still unexposed for 141 imo. Whether it's a handicap here or at punchestown I think hes very capable of improving on that mark.

    No martin pipe thread but I think diese des bieffes has a cracking mark of 135 and would also improve for the trip the way he stayed on last time against what I believe to be an extremely good horse.

    Diese Des bieffes down to run in the lanzarote Hurdle Saturday so be interested to see how he’s ridden if running. I’m interested in his stablemate William Henry for that race, may well not be seen at Cheltenham so expect him to be all out Saturday, brings the best form into the race for me

    Poli Roi to the well again tomorrow. Am expecting a Davy special, take him wide, all in the name of getting a decent mark for the Martin Pipe I suspect

    Poli Roi pulled up in that race, not sure if any issues. There isn't a thread for the Close Brothers Novice Chase, but having noted that Movewiththetimes is being plotted up for that one, you would also have to say the same and have some cover on Ballyandy. Mark dropped to 145 i'd be fairly certain this is now the aim
