    Martin Pipe 2018

    Apologies if there is already a thread, I did look but couldnít spot one!

    We all know that Elliott loves this race, he won it last year with his 2nd choice when every preview night was throwing up The Storyteller prior to his withdrawal.

    Iím convinced Poli Roi is a better horse than he is currently showing.

    Skybet have given 16/1 NRNB, I canít see him going off a bigger price than that if he ended up there on the day.

    I had it in mind before his last run, so watched him and it was a good enough run to make me put him up NRNB.

    Any thoughts/opinions?

    Was on my list. Unlikely to make it now made a noise after his last race as posted by someone else before,
    I'd be assuming he misses the festival all together. Unless he just needs his pallet cauterised. But sounds worse, so probably a hobday and out for 12 weeks or so.

    It's nrnb anyway so .........

    My previous main fancy runs today diesse des bieffes. I'd be assuming that's the martin pipe dream over

    Are you a backer of DDB today Scooby? He definitely looks like he'll improve for the step up in trip.

    I havent, i try to avoid big handicaps pre festival. Deffinately think he'll improve for the step up and he's a nice horse. When he was 8/1 ew I diddnt know if he was going here. So at current prices I can leave the race alone. As its a pretty big field and there's a few decent types in the race

    Cheers Scooby. It looks a competitive race but he could be absolutely chucked in. I assume NJH will be looking at the Ballymore if he wins today?!

    Quite likely yes. Can't see him scraping in the MP of 140 if he won. But you never know.

    I’d be fairly convinced that William Henry is a better horse than DDB at this point. Happy to be proved wrong as it will give If The Cap Fits form an even more solid look

    I thought he had great chance here , hope he makes it ,not heard anything from yard to say definitely misses festival.If he makes it i expect tidal wave of money for him before day and on it and he hoses up (obviously talking through my hopeful pocket lol)

    Sky have Duc Des Genievres at 8/1 NRNB
    Bet 365 have the same horse 20/1 NRNB

    Any indication DDG would get in this race? Obviously the price discrepancy interested me... surely not!
