Tickity Bleue (NAP)
Johnb says: “707 days since this horse last run but she is by far the best horse in the race.
Her last run December 2013 was a win, a dead heat but a win, the important thing about that win though was that the horse she dead heated with was Mollys A Diva who now is rated 141.
On that day two years ago Tickity Bleue was by far the better horse, she ran green, made a couple of mistakes late on, ran on after the last and was just caught on the line.
So as I was saying Mollys A Diva is now rated 141 and although it’s nearly two years since Tickity Bleue has run she wouldn’t need to improve on that run to win this and could probably run below that level and still win this.
Race fitness is going to be the main question with this horse but the fact she won on debut suggests this won’t be a problem as Alan King can also ready a horse after a break. On debut in a nhf race she beat Glorious Twelfth who was no mug for Nicky Henderson, Glorious Twelfth did get revenge the following race but there was a 10lb pull in the weights that day.
Her only other run was on her hurdling debut where she came a decent fourth.
The main point though is if Tickity Bleue is ready to go she could make a mockery of this field and my personal opinion is that Alan King will have her ready.”
