    Yes for sure......I backed Long Run on Monday @ 9/4 :-)
     
  2. Someone tipped me Captain Chris as a long price ew contender for a place finish at the Gold Cup. Not entirely convinced, myself.

    ^ Ditto all the above! Can't see Long Run being beat.....but, i know its Chelts
     
  7. Grands Crus still 6-1 nrnb at Lads and Betfred. He's 7-1 at paddy power but basic ante post, so a big risk for an extra point if he doesn't run. Long Run best price 13-8, powers, evens at Lads.

    If you take out the top two in the gold cup
    thats KAUTO STAR and long run and the hobby jockey
    whatya got,not a lot.
    worth a punt on this underdog, he loves the course..

    IF Kauto doesnt go I wonder what Ruby will go on for the Gold Cup instead will he select a Mullins horse or go for another Nicholls horse.
    Just looking at the betting from the horses he has to choose from.
    Quel Esprit 12/1
    Poquelin 50/1
    The Midnight Club 66/1

    Out of the others he can choose you would have to go for Poquelin over the other 2 in my view.

    if quel esprit can keep out of trouble and a big if, he has an oustanding chance well fancied previous two years,prob would have won the rsa last year if it stood up 20/1 betfair is cracking value, will also have an ew saver on carruthers always gives good run for its money at cheltenham any of mark bradstocks horses are always worth a sniff at chelts
