    So if the ground wasn't an issue, Hendo was scared?

    Must have known Altior wouldn't have won today or merit....

    Therefore, saying "he would have won" is clutching?

    I'm just highlighting it's not clear cut he'd had beaten Politilogue easily If you're picking the Altior from Feb, I'll have the one who was all out to beat Politilogue.... now Altior is 11, it's hardly impossible to assume he's not getting better, and only a slight regression puts him bang there with Politilogue doesn't it?



    I haven't watched that race today and thought it boosts Altior's claims particularly
    I didn't rule Altior out off the back of that work, i've bored the forum to death in a couple of posts recently that touch on the subject.

    I'm not talking as an Altior backer, my eggs are in the PTKO basket which i'm still very much happy with. I'm just saying that had Altior turned up today, unless there's something big we don't know about, I would have had him as the winner without having to give it too much thought.

    Rouge Vif is a horse we know enough about at this point and Greaneteen made hardwork of it at Exeter and it looks like that's his level. Neither are QMCC level.

    Henderson having a right mare at Sandown, both of his hot favourites beaten out of site. Probably not as fit as he'd have them, or the ground is actually quite bad
    Maybe a winter bug perhaps?

    It appears anyone who had backed antepost with them they have given a free bet to according to twitter. They did the same on him & Chacun in the Champion Chase in March.

    Dont know that to make of that decision

    Really really disappointed as a fan of the sport that a superstar is a NR for the Tingle Creek!!! Disappointing as I was really looking forward to the race and seeing Altior being back

    Is it really that bad at Sandown, I've seen it be worse
    It's getting a little silly now, ground is too good, ground is too soft... now, Altior is getting on and this year will be his last chance to regain the QM but it's so frustrating as a punter and fan

    Still love you Altior, not so much Nicky.

    Edit(below)
    Worth noting P/P are doing a "justice refund" for anyone who had backed antepost with them. It's not something they should do or anyone should expect to receive but fair play to them.
