I canít bring myself to back Farouk DíAlene again but I feel heís got one of these in him as people who follow this thread know. I would love him to do it.

Good decision I think, be tough going out there in this, he's not a thorough out and out stayer so might as well wait for Aintree.

Nah, I hate it. Wouldnít be alright with it if he was my horse. Itís not that bad.

I think Farouk was going to win that but his jumping is just too dodgy. He put in a couple of sketchy leaps. All ifs, bits and maybes though. Sir Gerhard and LíHomme Presse, too horses with stamina to prove have won and werenít stopping. Nicholls has messed up but will blame others.

Had 25/1 on Bravemansgame since last March, but can understand it, donít think heíd have won in that.

Hopefully Farouk be ok, but donít think heíd have won

Whatís to say he wouldnít have won? Thereís nothing pointing to the ground being that bad. Itís National hunt racing, heís not down to run at Ascot in June. Itís soft, no worse than that in my opinion. Donít think Sir Gerhard or LíHomme Presse wouldíve won if it was that bad.

Ah weíll never know. Theyíve all got form on soft I suppose, I do know what youíre saying, but Nicholls ummed and ahhed about coming here since Christmas and clearly thinks Bravemansgame wouldnít have wanted it like that. He is a bit shy of Cheltenham these days since he hasnít got the same ammunition he used to have

The ground is fairly awful in fairness. I went back 10 years and so far it's the slowest Ballymore and RSA in that time. I couldn't be bothered going further back but the fact that that's the case shows just how soft this ground actually is.

Can't cash out on Tiger Roll, been trying for the past hour. Just because Elliott has been having a shocker don't take it out on me Paddy Power :D

Regulars on the thread will know how much I like L'Homme Presse, absolutely delighted for the horse and the team. He's a serious serious animal.
So bloody what? If you watch football to be absolutely miserable then go watch cricket.

So disappointing they watered, that wasn't it's usual spectacle for me.

Clerk has serious questions to answer, that's proper heavy ground.

I am not completely sure that Tiger Roll is definitely doomed though; his first National win was on Heavy ground and he has run on Soft three times at Cheltenham, winning twice. Easysland becomes a threat though IMO.

Reckon Shishkin must be injured. Didnít go a yard and backed off every fence

What an anti climax

Perhaps not injured then, nico still on his back

The clerk has so much to answer for here. This ground is AWFUL. Just don't think Shishkin went a yard on it, proper heavy winter ground which wouldn;t be the case had there been no watering. Worst day watching Cheltenham for me full stop. Shocking.

I know the ground is an easy one to blame now but you've seen bravemansgame pulled out and Nicholls was fuming. Now you've got Shishkin who is a special horse not looking arsed from the first but fine in the ring..

That's racing but I feel like there's some questions for watering the ground when rain albeit little was forecast

The times are telling you it's heavy though. They won't change it or they;d be admitting blame. But only a handful of finisher in the Coral, race times the slowest in years, non runners all over the place which is awful for punters. It;s the ground to blame here and specifically the decision to water.

Yesterday's quick ground provided top class racing, today isn't overly entertaining in my view, it's fine for the winter but this is a spring festival, if the rain had done it by itself then that's life, but given how nice the ground was yesterday we'd have been fine today with just rain I think. So disappointing.

Seems Shishkin is fine, just couldnít go or jump on the ground.

Have to agree that itís been spoilt as a spectacle by the watering, but itís a tough job and decision to make. Theyíve made the wrong one and maybe itíll force a rethink into whether they just accept faster ground if itís in doubt in future

Can't win really, if they hadn't watered and the rain didn't arrive there would be non-runners everywhere too and people saying they should have watered.

Yeah, i believe a few forecasts had it being dry for the races today, why they went & watered the course, they've been caught between a rock & a hard place.

Thatís a real shitter. Thereís no sentiment in racing and a win is a win but theyíve put in one of their best and collared one of the best horses of the last 20 years as a result. Leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
