    It's three weeks away! Plenty of time to sort that.
    I'm playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

    Looked a bit slicker over the hurdles. Jonbon said to rule the roost at home, though. Both look to be going places, I think.

    I reckon one of them will win Supreme and Arkle. And then be seen twice year for the rest of their lives.

    If Constitution Hill had not been in that race Might I would be in everyones notebook as one to follow.

    He has gone past the 3rd like he was a tree and left him about 15 lengths in his wake which in it's own would have been a good performance.

    No doubt about it this Constitution Hill is very very good.

    However I'll stay in the Jonbun camp who has been christined black airplane Mk2.

    Think that Henderson has the kennel gate pencilled in for Jonbon and 'we'll find something' for constitution hill suggests the pecking order. To the eye, couldn't fault either

    Maybe, but Sprinter Sacre did not win the Supreme and Altior did. And it's the latter who came to mind when Constitution Hill bounded clear.

    March 22 might see a repeat of Mrach 2011 when Nicky ran both Spirit Son and Sprinter Sacre. He would not hear of defeat for Spirit Son and we all know how that turned out.

    That was the only time Spirit Son lost in his short career and if you look back at how well Sprinter Sacre was going 2 out you'll be scratching your head wondering how he got beat.

    Truth is as Nicky predicted Sprinter was a big baby at the time and weakened like one despite having won 4 from 5 beforehand.

    A similar situation was when Altior came out ahead of the somewhat immature Buveur D'Air who had won his in his two previous outings.

    Right now I can't see a chink in either's armour but then neither has really been tested so to be fair it is pure guesswork and like in Al Ferof's year perhaps neither will prevail

    I was wondering about him. He wants good ground so a late campaign could be on the cards

    Don't think he's anywhere near good enough to be going the Cheltenham route. They all finsihed in a bunch behind him at Chepstow.

    Today's GD2 Peterborough Chase should be worh a watch. Eldodrado Allen was twice beaten pointless by Shishkin last year, and may well give the form a fillip.

    Never rains but it pours. Buzz who was said to have improved a stone sonce the Coral Hurdle has fractured his pelvis and will most likley miss the rest of the season.

    It can take as long as 3 months before a horse can even do light excersice.

    He is now depending on Champ to carry the banner.....better him than me.

    Shishkin will have a crucial gallop on Tuesday to decide whether he’ll run in the Desert Orchid at Kempton (Dec 27). He was scoped this morning after a piece of work with Epatante and it was clean. Clarence House an option if Nicky is not happy.
