  • I've backed him for the Bartlett - seems to fit the profile a little better.

    2nd season novice - experience often counts in the Bartlett
    Could follow the Thyme Hill route to the Festival

    I feel that he would have real chance in the Bartlett, but not in the Ballymore.

        Having backed the hills special for today and the supreme, after the drift I've now backed him today and if he wins will roll it up on the ballymore.

          • Maybe connections feel that he needs the run?
            Saint Roi finished 5th last season - went off 1/3

              Poor decision that.

              • That race looked so slow aswell! Not sure what the clock will suggest but it didn’t pass the eye test for sure!

                • Hmm! Capodanno, looks a bit green, gets away from his hurdles well although already looks as though he'd enjoy a fence. Found nothing at the end although i'm dubious about whether much at all was asked. Certainly wont be giving sleepless nights to Supreme bets elsewhere...

                  Even worse, RP put up Pepite de Belle and it was a reasonably convincing case at a massive price

                  • i have no idea what to make of that. He has a G1 entry over christmas so they obviously think something of him at home, but the huge drift (1/2 out to 6/4) shows they didnt think he was winning today. Maybe they didnt have him fit and they knew that, maybe it was 3f too far, maybe both Maybe hes just not very good

                    • Ground? Or not good enough? Thought it looked well jumping
                      and made a bit each time went over the obstacles. Although never showed any speed ud want to see for a supreme winner!

                      • Capodanno not exactly knocked about and a drift before.
                        cash out gone

                        • Certainly wont be troubling any of the market principles in the Supreme. The winner beaten almost 57L by Appreciate It in her last race.

                          • He looked like he was running over further than what he needs, the ground isnt the best either. Hopefully improve for the run

                            • Wouldn't totally give up on him yet, ground looked desperate and could have been one of many reasons for the drift. Not the ideal debut by any means but wasn't given a hard time at all.

                              • I’d personally say not a lot to take from it at all in view of the Supreme certainly. Hurdled well enough to be fair, first run for a year for new yard.

                                Drift may have been telling.

                                But ran on heavy in France so surely ground can’t be too much on an excuse. The winner beaten half a fields length on similar ground on its last run, against a horse we all see as probably needing a trip.

                                No choice but to let it run anyway as PP removed cashout, exact same as they did with Galopin. So with that in mind I’ll be wary of backing any of Mullins with PP going forward.

                                Edit - for the supreme on debut
