      Since he's not entered at the DRF either, can only assume that either something is amiss or he is being saved for Punchestown Festival.

        Yep, he's a gonner I'd say. Makes Envois task in the Marsh even easier now though..... Always a Silver Lining

        • Surely Patrick isn’t wanting to ride Asterion in this???

            Think that falls under gluttony for punishment

              AF won't be going anywhere near the place.

              • Obviously the yard form is dire; but Tizzard usually has one good enough to place in this. It is a race he has done relatively well in.

                I thought maybe TBB might get an entry but only ones are Ofalltheginjoints & Sizing At Midnight - do either make any appeal? Sizing At Midnight is more experienced and was seemingly going well when falling last time out.

                The other one that interest me is Kitty's Light of Christian Williams.

                • After those entries Galvin's position at the head of the betting looks even stronger now.

                  • Lord Royal entered in a 3m beginners chase on Saturday for anyone interested.

                    20/1 NRNB and only 1 of 2 entered for WPM in this along with Asterion Forlonge.

                      Risky using definitive language re most of Willies novices, let alone a horse that's one of only two entered in a race where he usually has runner. Is it likely? No. Is it beyond the realms of possibility? Also no. IMO of course

                        Couldn't have a worse profile for the race.
                        Except he's likely to be Mullins only runner.
                        Which makes it hard to ignore, but I might.

                        • Just to put the case for the contrary on Lord Royal...

                          Firstly, we are talking about a Mullins runner at 33-1 and 20-1 NRNB.....so the question is more is there value here

                          The horse was a pretty good hurdler and ran chase RPR of 150 when fell.....looked ok til that point (obviously need to forgive one run)....and should he win his next race, or run well, the price will shorten massively

                          Totally understand the case against and the profile is high-risk......but that's why its 33s......and Willie / Patrick must have some faith (can't believe the loony one comes here, so this must be their planned horse)

                          They have also given Lord Royal multiple entries....again pointing to they rate him

                          I have added a little NRNB to my previous bet and had some cheeky doubles to roll-on to obvious favs. You are probably all right and can have a laugh after next run.....but i think not much to lose on few small punts

                            Were his entries made before he had his fall the other day ?

                              He'd have made the entries on Monday so, no.

                                Very interesting and surprising ! They won't run him will they ?? Maybe they'll keep him in both races right up until final Dec stage to frighten a few off
