      Brave nap John, the more I look at the race the more I like Henderson’s horse! Think limini just beat traffic cones at Cheltenham so real test today mate.

      Good luck

    Arrrr johnb I was just going to say if limini gets beat it will be today. Really fancied Henderson to take this what with his record of 4 out of last 6 renewal winners. Anything put you of D’air in particular?

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 1 year ago

      Not rally, I tipped up Buveur Dair at Cheltenham but Limini is a class act and should win this along with the Ascot Stakes at Royal Ascot

    Posted yesterday… I kid you not, I have been looking at this race for an hour now and looked at the form lines with Altior/Buveur Dair to include winning times. Altior won the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle 2m 87y in 3m 46.10s whereas Limini won the Trull House Stud Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle 2m 179y in 3m 57.80s. Buveur Dair was not that far behind and jumps better than Limini. It comes down to the weight allowance on soft ground and so Limini should in theory win this. The reason I have looking at this race is because of Marracudja who in my view is priced up wrongly. Marracudja had Gwafa well beaten back in 6th place and carries 8lbs less than when ahead by 7.25 lentghs. Yet Gwafa is priced as short as 11s whereas Marracudja at a whopping 50/1. Marracudja is a solid jumper that propels over fences if you watch the running style and likes to make the running from what I have seen. Would be good to get anyone’s views. I just can’t see it finishing 2nd last. but perhaps does not have enough to trouble the top 2 in the betting. I’m willing to part with a few quid at 50/1 E/W.

    More than happy to see JohnB put up Limini 11/8 and that will be my main bet today.

      busstop, I can’t ban people – only admin can and they do but sometimes they return with different IDs.
      Meanwhile, comments will deleted and best bet is to ignore the losers.

      Boz, lets not complicate things, but how often does a horses breeding come into play with regard to soft ground? Ive seen horses by turtle island relish the soft before, but as we know this does not rub off on his progeny

          erndog, it’s for plenty – Johnb quite often puts up racing info on the forum.
          The Grand National sweepstake was for members only as is today’s £10 to £100 Challenge.
          You have to remember you get all the free stuff too and at any point we can make them members only as was the case last month with Scott Allott’s Euro tips, Desmond’s goals tips and Ace’s inplay golf tips.
