[Sticky] Friday November 17th 2023
Now that I've got my weekly wrong date day out of my system I am raring to go for the weekend. Well done Leo and Pebbles yesterday. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Have been trying to perm any 10 from 11 in the Tote Ten To Follow competition and am baffled. Will call them this morning unless any of you can steer me right?
Real World. Bahrain 12.05.
Gentle and Kind - 13.10 Cheltenham
Nap: Petit Tonnerre, 14:20 Ch
2.55 chelt latenightpass
Abaya Du Mathan 2.10 Doncaster is the nap, well done yesterdays winners.
Caithness 16:05 Chelt Nap
Volcano (ew) - 14.55 Cheltenham
Mr Mckay. Cheltenham 16.05 Eaxh way
White rhino 1.10Ch.
NAP Downtherefordancin 4.05 Chelt’nam…..
While he has not exactly been knocked over, Belgoprince is now 7/1 third favourite in the 4.05 Cheltenham, having opened at 14/1. Impossible to know how good the fav Impose Toi is, but I wonder if he'll find this a little sharp - it's bound to be run at a strong pace.
I really enjoy the X country and have backed Back on the Lash previously and am wondering how cheap I am to desert him. Despite 2 Gold Cup standard horses heading the weights
Nap Chelts 1455 Late Night Pass
gets plenty of weight and I'm hoping the Skelton's ability to get a horse jumping shines through.
It amazes me that home-based trainers can only scrape together four horses to take on the Irish in the Grade 2 novices hurdle (3.30). There are precious few chances before the festival to give your better novices course experience. Are they already waving the white flag in the face of the Irish invasion?
Somehow I have 4 trackers running in the 15:53 at Doncaster, none of whom are in the first 2 in the betting odds.
After putting out 4 bowls of cat food with the name of each horse under each bowl and seeing which horse is their selection, Nickelforce is the nap.
