    You might want to add those two in with Might Bite for Kempton as well Darren?

    Just hammered a 16/1 double.
    Apple's Shakira - Triumph
    Samcro - Ballymore

    Also had a few singles and multiples. Faugheen at 6s is my most exciting one up to now.

    Most of them revolve around Finians Oscar for JLT and Might Bite for the Gold Cup.

    Great time of year for ante post. I've got stuck into multiples and singles since Fairyhouse. In terms of multiples I think there is a big angle putting JLT/RSA horses in multiples. It can't be that hard to be confident of some runners in these races and their prices are related. For me the best angle is the Arkle, I can't see how the front two in the betting won't line up.

    Arkle
    Footpad 6/1 Brain Power 10/1 8/1
    Always a race to cut up. Both of these horses have it as their obvious target. How can one or both of these not go off much shorter.

    Champion Hurdle
    Buveur D'Air 3/1
    Have my doubts about Faugheen. At current prices the champ looks solid.

    Champion Chase
    Douvan 3/1
    No brainer. They could have taken the easy option and gone for the Hilly Way. Expecting him to look back to his best in the Tingle Creek. Have to take a piece of him now.

    RSA
    Monalee 7/1
    Plenty of question marks about what goes for which race with so many having JLT and 4 miler options. Think 7/1 this is an obvious one to have onside.

    JLT
    Death Duty 8/1 really is my NAP right now. So much scope for this to go off sub 3/1 in this race.

    Mares Novice Hurdle
    Salsaretta 8/1
    As soon as this is entered you'll need something on her. She's a proper talking horse and even if she beats trees FTO she could be 5/2 fav for this.

    Gold Cup
    Might Bite 7/1 6/1
    Any price a good price before the 26th.

    I took 25/1 Beer Goggles for the Stayers' Hurdle. I don't think there was that much of a fluke about his defeat of UNWIMH the other day and it looks like they're definitely going to try their luck with him. If he can improve 5-7lbs again by March, he has to be in the mix. I think his hurdling technique is excellent too.

    I think that's a fair enough shout, DO.

    The Stayers is a race I was (possibly still am*) going to have a look through tonight, as it looks far-and-away the most open of the Championship races at the Festival.

    * We'll see. I've had a bottle of plonk, and I'm now on the French coffees.

    Start at the top. What's wrong with 7/1 Nichols Canyon, 7/1 Unowhatimeanharry or even 3/1 the pair?

    Honest answer is I don't think either of them are entirely for trusting.

    I wouldn't trust harry and he will be 10 next year. I think Fry got a lot out of this horse just did not win the big one in the spring.
    Nichols Canyon is the reigning champ in a weak division and have not seen compelling evidence that he has regressed or is untrustworthy
    His record for Mullins is exemplary. 9 wins 3 secs and 5 3rds one fell and unseated.

    He's the champ and 8 next year and the horse they have to beat imb. Beer Goggles is interesting although the sectional report I got was nothing out of the ordinary.

    regardless what I think of their communication prowess.
    He is in the care of the master trainer.

    Not to knock the horse, brendan, but this record falls a long way short of "exemplary" in my book. It's good, no doubt, but lets not crack him up to be something he isn't.

    I give him a chance but he could well be 25s on the day.Nicholls Canyon has any amount of juice in him at 7/1 -not hard to see him getting a couple of confidence boosters in Ireland before the festival -I see him as a 3/1 shot on the day.UKWIMH had his chance -one for the JP lemmings.

    Has spent a lot of time being asked to run over a trip short of his best-could see him arriving at the festival on the crest of a wave.

    Exemplary in his high level consistency but overall I'd give him a very good up to now.

    I dont currently see a better horse in this div..

    Think the division is poor myself, and looking to exploit a possible angle. Will reveal* when I see entries for the Long Walk.

    * It's not that dark, to be fair.

    Usually when I look at the card for Cheltenham on Thursday I am massively underwhelmed. Stayers Hurdler ante post is no different.
