Thread: Kim Muir 2018

  1. #1

    Kim Muir 2018

    I don't think there's a thread for this yet so, after starting the Grand Annual thread, I seem to be challenging myself to solving some of the most impossible ante-post handicap puzzles of the week!

    Squouateur is the obvious one after coming down 3 out when looking menacing in the race last year and running a really promising race behind Anibale Fly last time. However, he hasn’t been missed by the bookies and is not a price I feel tempted to get involved with at this point.

    The one that intrigues me is a familiar name to the festival… MALL DINI. Someone gave him a mention in the 4mile thread but I haven’t been able to resist taking a nibble at the standout 33s for this race with BetVictor. He was a close 5th in the race last year and has shown his wellbeing this season without doing anything to threaten his handicap mark. The risk element is that they may go for the 4miler but at 33s I’m prepared to take a chance.

    Connections almost certainly won't run Presenting Percy and Mall Dini in the same race and I had convinced myself PP would go the 4mile route, which means MD goes Kim Muir. If PP goes for the RSA then the 4 mile option is opened up to MD, but they may still choose the handicap route anyway off a mark in the low 140s.

    Mall Dini declared for the 2m 4f grade 3 at Punchestown tomorrow - I'd expect a quiet performance for handicap mark preservation.

    Good effort VF. Two tough races to start up as you say

    33/1 is an attractive looking price. Should get in if he did last year, don't see why they'd aim any higher especially when they have PP for the 4miler or RSA anyway.... Katie Walsh on board again?

    I'd expect so Kev, yes.

    I don't think he's done anything to warrant a loftier mark than last year, so barring a surprisingly good run tomorrow, I wouldn't think getting into the race would be a problem. On the day he's nearing a single figure price for me so just think the 33s is way off mark, even with usual ante-post risk factor.

    I know Scooby also likes the look at Minella Till Dawn for this.

    Requested a 365 price and they've put in at 50's NRNB.

    Worth a look id say.

    Not rated high enough or shown nearly enough to get in bar the 2m4f hurdle win on 2nd start for me!

    Only a quick glance but 50/1 looks short to me haha

    I’d be interested in the opinions of people regarding Broadway Buffalo for this.

    He’s got the right connections after The Package a few years back.

    Do you know what injury he had to keep him off the course for so long?

    Katie Walsh rode too a couple of times (and Codd once)...

    De plotting shed is running over a trip far too short tomorrow. Could be of interest to me here.
