Was tempted to have a go at Thunder Moon myself this morning but wasnít sure about the soft ground for him, plus a number of the others look like they may enjoy the soft, so will just watch. Hope it does the business for you

Cheers mate  :thumbup

Thunder Moon came there cruising but didn't have the kick that he had at the Curragh. Maybe the ground blunted his kick a bit because he beat both of those that day whilst being very unlucky in running. Time will tell, still sweet on him for the Gunieas.

Yep travelled nicely as you say just wasnít able to go away so may well be the ground. Different ground in May hopefully. AidanOíBrien has a very good record in the Dewhurst so no surprise to see him getting more from the first two there.

Queens Brook just held on but didnít win like a 1/3 shot. Bit disappointing really.

First time over obstacles I don't really mind how much they win by, how was the jumping?

Only really took the last couple of hurdles at proper speed so hard to know for sure but didnít do anything wrong jumping wise

Cool, won't rule it out going on to bigger and better things for now. Elliot's often only squeak home first time out over hurdles from my experience.

Hoping they go Breeders Cup with him, looks tailor made for the Juvenile Turf I think, 100% ground went against him yesterday!

Joseph O'Brien would have no problem travelling with him you'd imagine. Colin Keane rode his first winner for Aidan today. Think I've mentioned it on here before but he's definitely Coolmore's next jockey, in Ireland at least.

Definitely, he's some jockey. 2nd best in Europe for me only to Boudot.

Feel like Moore has had his day and has declined somewhat in recent years, was truly top class when at his best but not quite there anymore.

A new Cheveley Park 2m juvenile hurdler dotted up for Elliott today. Quilixios. No idea what it beat but will no doubt be aiming higher next time out. Jumped well bar one it was big at early on. Already 14-18/1 for the Triumph.

Darver Star also now second fav for the Arkle after his debut over fences earlier. A bit fiddly early when they were dawdling round jumped better when they picked up the pace.

Looked a nice prospect Quilixios didn't he, hard to know what he beat thought as most nice Juveniles aren't brought out until later on.

Darver Star is a serious contender for the Arkle isn't he.

Eskylane going over hurdles in the first at Punchestown. Not a backable price but worth a watch, some very decent bumper form from last season.

Although he didn't look overly impressive, I think that will be a maiden to follow. 8 seconds faster than the handicap over the same difference which is huge!

Thatís interesting as it sounds like he wants further than 2m. Donít know if he got tired as was almost caught on the line, but could be a horse that needs delivering late as well

3 decent horses in a novice chase at Ffos Las tomorrow. Unfortunately theyíre the only 3 in the race but interested to see how Fiddlerontheroof measures up against two more seasoned hurdlers. Might want softer ground but think he could go to the top over fences. Only issue may be heís likely to be up against Envoi Allen at the in between distance

Tough assignment first time out, but I loved Fiddlerontheroof in the parade ring at Cheltenham. Thought he'd make up into a big staying chaser so what he was doing over 2m over hurdles was an absolute bonus.

Considering he made a right mess of the first that was pretty good from If The Cap Fits. Fiddlerontheroof jumped well but seemed a little one paced at the end, maybe he wants further, possibly just at his best in proper soft and heavy conditions

Another potential Arkle horse running shortly. Captain Guinness runs in the 3:50 at Tipperary. Looked to be running a big race in the Supreme before being taken out by the chaos at the second last

Well they didnít hang around field finished strung out. Unexcepted did it well, but wasnít troubled after Captain Guinness dropped away and was pulled up a couple of fences after an awkward jump

Elliott ran through almost every horse in his stable in the Racing Post yesterday. Basically admitted it doesnít seem like Malone Road will be as good as expected. Injuries seem to have taken a lot out of him. Elliott is a positive trainer and never even gave up on Samcro when he was getting beat by ordinary types. Did say he wants upping in trip which seems pretty apparent. If heís not raving about one though I ainít backing it.

Shame as he did look the business but they rarely come back the same. What about Quilixios, any others he was particularly bullish about?

Did say heís still got faith in Delta Work so Iíll probably have a bit on him for the Gold Cup and I remember him saying Presenting Percy was the best staying chaser in Ireland by a country mile before he gave them a kicking in the RSA. Donít give up on him for some big races, if Elliott can turn him inside out thereís a huge race in him. A lot of generic comments about horses though really. Heíd plotted up one for Cheltenham I think, Glenloe but it never ran. Keep that on your radar.

One I like a stack is Farouk DíAlene, I think heíll take high rank for the Ballymore.

Wondered whether Percy might end up in the Stayers hurdle if canít mix it over fences. Sounds as though Percy and Delta Work might both be in the race Kauto used to win at Down Royal to start out in a couple of weeks

Farouk DíAlene was the one that didnít go in the bumper in the end wasnít it?

Great shout on Percy, think he'd be made for a stayers especially given Lisnagar Oscar won it last season.

Nice enough run back from Tiger there, sure they'll have left plenty to work on and he wasn't beaten all that far considering how badly he missed the break.

Just found this thread. Love the jumps, just a bit worried about The Festival next year.

Good luck tomorrow everyone. My old favourite Cogry funs in the 3.50pm, 11 runners, 4 places in Hills. I'll have an ew stab

Wish he'd done that in the Arkle when I was all over him!! Certainly seems to need Good ground, if it's proper spring ground at the festival he will go close in a champion chase.

I see Paul Kealy has gone for the same.

Cogry won this in 2017, placed in the last two years. My money on its back may change his form in this. My few quid usually weighs very heavy on a horses. But I'll give the old boy another go, been good to me over the years. Frodon would have to work a miracle giving all that weight.

It's some record considering the old course doesn't suit, if he runs big here I'll be all over him for the 3m handicap at the November meeting on the new course. Followed that path last season and won nicely.

That was mightily impressive.

Hoping Allmankind can do the business today. Giving away heaps of weight to the Irish raider though who is no mug and there's been a good bit of money for.
