      Itchy Feet has some engine. LTO he was smashing fences, making mistake after mistake and he's doing all his best work late. With fluid jumping over hurdles (which he did) over 3m I think he'll be a player in this division. Can't see him priced up but I'll be backing him when he is if its a decent double figure price.

              Big time. He's been underperforming massively considering the backing he's had. Would be shipping my horses elsewhere if i had them with him...

                  Doesn't he tend to do better in the spring? Probably can't get much worse tbf. Shit form.

                    • Champ getting an entry here. If I could have got a big price on the straight win bet, I would have gone for it, but was only 20-something on the machine last time I checked anyway. Taken the 10s NRNB. Henderson moaning in the RP today again about nowhere suitable to get a run over fences into him, and apparently he was entered for a hurdle race in market rasen then taken out again before the entries closed.

                      you’d think surely not, but a lot of the stuff coming out of the yard makes you wonder.

                        If he ends up in the stayers.
                        It's not Henderson's finest hour.

                          There is the Cotswold chase for him - which would fit perfectly. Mr Toad knows this as well.

                          He is getting a right cautious old bugger in his old age.

                          The stable are not firing either and have had by their standards a very average season. Hopefully they will be fine by March but it is definitely worth keeping an eye on.

                            No, the 16/1 antepost with the bookies is very poor and surely doesn’t reflect the true possibility of him lining up here, I’d have him a fair degree of odds on to go to the gold cup even with all the shite hendo keeps talking. But it does make you stop and wonder, almost if he’s on a campaign of softening people up for him not taking in then gold cup this year. Which would be ridiculous for an rsa winner. But his win in the 3 mile hurdle at aintree was very good and I do think the stayers would be right up his street, and surely would be less then 10/1 on the day if he did go there making the NRNB bet a bit of a shot to nothing really.

                              A few of Hendos have scoped dirty in the last week or so....

                              • He's got 2 x 2020 festival winners with JP that still haven't run this season for no apparent good reason, and he's had since March last year to get them ready.
                                Considering their Cheltenham targets it seems risky, and unnecessary.
