You would prefer them to jump straight but not too much of a hinderance at Cheltenham. She’ll defo be a player, any quotes after the race? I am assuming this is her target.
    Nico didnt give much away, but said she'd be better at 2m4f. No talk of another run, but Id be very surprised if this race isnt her Cheltenham target.

    • Couldn't back her if she doesnt run again myself

      will surely need more experience than one chase run in a 2 runner race

      good chance she didn't run again last year to protect her handicap mark

      • She'd probalbly win if there was a Mares 'Novice' Chase. She might even win the Mares Chase, but when you see her as short as 5/1 and nother novice Colreevy as short as 7/2, I'd rather be with the experienced Mares at the prices. Benie's price is just as poor having only had 3 lifetime chases, and none for three years.

        I'm fortunate that I backed Dame De Compagnie at 20/1 abd Benie at 14/1 (missed Colreeby), but I wouldn't be touching any now at the prices, an ddeifinitley not DDC with one novicey looking chase under her belt.

        Shattered Love bets price 16/1 and Happy Diva best price 20/1 remain the value wtth their experience, ratings, and impressive course and distance records.
        Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more I sweat, the luckier I get.

        • I like DDC a lot but Spectre has called it.

            Thanks CCM, lets hope he makes it there o.k though I can't help think she may get done for experience in taking on the older mares. I think they really do need to get another run into her.

              I agree. Another run would ne nice. Sure they can get another one into her early Feb somewhere.

                Barring the one obvious mistake I thought she jumped really well. The experience point is a good one, but it bothers me slightly less with DDC. The Mares Chase will be her 6th career start at Cheltenham which is invaluable experience there, albeit not over fences.

                • For those looking at comparisons between some of those heading the market, it's worth drawing your attention to the very first post of this thread. My reading of the conditions appears to suggest that Colreevy would need to carry a Grade 1 penalty of 5lb and that needs to be factored into any equation.

                  • Hopefully the three shorties make the market for the more experienced horses and you can still get prices on the day if you fancy them.
