    Think we should bump this up with the name Mick Pastor in here after this 'lifeless' run the other day

      I currently have 6 pencilled in for this race (and we are not even in December yet) Which is ridiculous, as my record in it is pretty crap tbh!

          Us And Them @ 27/1 seems reasonable to me. I think JOB will defo line him up for another crack at this.

            Likely to run again, won't be trying to win? May get a bigger price?

            Am I being too hopeful?

              Yeh maybe you're right. I won't be having a bet in this, just looking at the market and he stood out.

                  I was really hoping brelan d’as would take up his entry in this for Nichols & JP last festival, I never actually found out the reason why he wasn’t declared I was so caught up in everything when the decs came out on Wednesday but I can remember being surprised as I was sure he’d run as looked to have been aimed for another crack at this from the outset of the season. One of the few festival races Nichols has a nice record in, although I’m not usually one to back many in the handicaps antepost.

                    I think it might be another JP horse of the same age!
                    Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more I sweat, the luckier I get.

                        Hoping to see global citizen take the same route as "us and them" and come here, GC has dropped 6lbs since his wayward lad win. This is one of the races the cancellation of the novice handicap chase might effect, another 20 horses looking for somewhere to go, think we may see this race ratings overview contract to small margins.

                          Can't have him on an undulating track just look at the distances beaten and how much more fluent he moves on a flat deck. Eluded to it on the NH section, annoyed he isn't rocking up tomorrow in the 3.35 but for me much more effective at a Kempton/Newbury/Aintree/Haydock than a Chelt imo.

                            I would have agreed with you, about flat tracks, before the Arkle but i thought he ran a cracker there. Nearly brought down by maire banrigh. 6lbs lower with possible more to come off. That Arkle makes him a player here for me.

                              Game of opinions ain't it bud, plus no doubt those pesky Irish have something with 10lbs up their sleeve come the day.
