    Close Brothers Novice Handicap Chase 2018

    Early to start off, but PP and BF have decided to get odds up on all the handicaps and there was one in this I was interested in with his rating....

    https://www.oddschecker.com/cheltenh...p-chase/winner

    Movewiththetimes 33/1 with PP. Can't remember which thread this was discussed in, but this race is 0-145 (increased last year) and MWTT is rated 145.

    I thought he MIGHT be put away but I see he has an entry at Chelt over 2m4f on 16th December (Saturday). I'll keep an incredibly close eye on the race, as he might still be good enough for races like the JLT but to me, he'd be a huge player in this on that run behind Finian's Oscar... and 5L behind NHH and Sceau Royal...

    Plenty others to consider though....

    I think it's worth pointing out that Coo Star Sivola, who I mentioned in the same point about MWTT, finished in front off level weights in their particular match yesterday. Currently has an OR of 135 (compared to 145 for MWTT) so it might be interesting to see how that changes.

    Yes good point archie!

    I have just spotted MWTT is 20/1 any race with WH when he is best priced 14/1 for this race.... for anyone that missed the bigger prices perhaps?

    Which includes myself despite highlighting the 33/1

    MWTT dropped just 1lb to 144. Coo Star Sivola unchanged on 135!

    Got a price boost from Hills for MWTT... 21.7/1 any race. Seems fair enough!

    Coo Star Sivola likely to be an alright price much much much closer to the time.... odd to not go up at all..... might actually NEED to go up to get in?

    Not sure where the improvement would come from though as it seemed to be because of the step UP in trip do you think?

    I think I'd be waiting for NRNB but I don't see MWTT winning a handicap off a mark in the 140s.
