    Wouldn't want to be with him off of top weight.

    He can't be trusted to run to his mark, no real reason to believe he has anything in hand and the chances at least one horse isn't good enough to breach that mark aren't worth 25/1 IMO

    • Anyone with bets for kemboy without NRNB should cash out, sporting life posted a video on Twitter a couple of minutes ago that has since been deleted with a video of Mullins being interviewed confirming kemboy will go to the gold cup.

            • The right decision. Said it when the stayers was first mentioned.
              Irish Gold cup winner, and unlucky not to win at Christmas (winning jockey banned but they keep the race is not a rule i like but thats a different discussion).

              a fall at the first and tactics that didnt suit last year - the horse hasnt had a proper go at it yet.

              Best of luck to Archie and connections

                Rebecca Curtis can approach the defence of Lisnagar Oscar’s Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle crown with vigour following a return to form at Haydock.

                A shock winner of the race last season, the eight-year-old had disappointed twice this season before a problem with his breathing was diagnosed.
                Having had a subsequent operation to fix it, Lisnagar Oscar ran right to the line when second to Third Wind – giving him 6lb – in the Rendlesham Hurdle on Saturday.

                “He’s come out of the race really well, I’m very happy with him,” said Curtis.
                “It was a good run giving the weight away. I know he’s won at Haydock, but it wouldn’t be the ideal track for him so we made plenty of use of him.
                “He had a long time off so hopefully he’ll strip a bit fitter for it, but I couldn’t be happier with him – he’s in great form now for Cheltenham.
                “At Newbury you could tell there was a problem, he travelled great to two out then stopped. He’d never had a wind problem before, but it was quite obvious it was catching him out.
                “It’s brilliant that it’s worked and we’ve got him back. He’s only eight.”

                Lisnagar Oscar was a 50-1 winner at the Festival 12 months ago and while he may not be as big a price this time around, he will still be among the outsiders. The sponsors currently have him at 16-1.

                “He’s never really fancied, I suppose I can see why, for the last two seasons his form in the first half of the season hasn’t been good, but you’d have to be fairly confident after his last run,” she said.

                “If he’s in the same sort of form as last year he’d have to have a good chance.”

                  Nice to read. One of my first ante post bets, been a generous price all season, and still is imo

                        PS was officially scratched and made a non runner a while ago.

                        • The markets suggest it's a done deal that Roksana will head to the Mares hurdle but Skelton is on record as saying that good ish ground and she'll head here, anyone picked up on any updates ?

                            Yep, imagine that was always the case. However, plenty of rain about and it looks like starting on the Soft side of Good/Soft now so the Mares Hurdle probably is fav.

                              I would have thought the forecast rain, up to 20mm, would have been a relief to Claisse and his team, they were probably formulating a watering plan the way things were going.
                              20mm over the course of the week is probably just about enough to maintain good to soft, Roksana running in a Mares Hurdle on good to soft would be baffling...

                                Yeah, really struggling to see how she performs over the shorter trip over anythign better than soft

                                Maybe looking at sharpening her up for stayers hurdle at Aintree
