    Sandown Saturday December 4th

    Obviously we already have a thread for the Tingle Creek but the rest of the card is probably worth one of itís own. Plenty of quality on show

    Posted in the Novice Chasers thread

    Edwardstone is a bet in the Henry VIII

    Relative to the favourite he’s the wrong price Saturday. 9/2 with 365 but Betfred offering 3 places @ 4/1. Was cantering in his first run over fences when brought down then won easily next time out.

    Finished in front of Third Time Lucki giving 5lb at Cheltenham over hurdles in March. That one is 6/4 and for all he’s looked good the last twice, this is better and a different track.

    I absolutely love watching Sandown on TV but what shock to the system when I went racing there in the 90's.......I really thought "What a dump"

    However geting back to saturdays meeting

    I'd be happy to risk a bet on Diesa Alba who's troubles mught just be behind him. His Aintree effort over hurdles was excellent


    Chacun as stated looks past the post already

    Despite top weight Colin Tizzard's Triple Trade might be well in against a somewhat moderate lot

    Third Time Lucki is going for a hatrick and is very hard to oppose

    Interesting that PFN turns out Il Ridoto again in the Henry VIII. This one barely broke a sweat last weekend when readily accounting for a few previous winners.
    Obviously a much better race here and heís got the quick turnaround to cope with as well but probably falls into the could be anything category

    Red Infantry interests me in the London Nash with Brian Hughes an eye catching booking

    You could be on to someithing there.

    The 12lbs rise has to be a worry but why would PN risk a 4 year old Chaser in such a tough race if he wasn't something special.

    He does have a good turn of foot and with good ground that becomes even more relevant

    Only 2 places but a win bet 7/1 and 7/4 a place looks very tempting.

    No harm in me backing both as long as I come out ahead

    Southern bias? I think Aintree has a better card tomorrow.

    Probably right Euro but it’s not a forum, or recent bias. Always been the way unfortunately.

    I had a decent bet or two but not to that extent I'm afraid

    Most of my selections have been cut drastically since I backed them

    All the evens about Chacun has gone, Triple Trade has gone from 10/1 to 100/30 and Deisa Alba 5/1 to 3/1

    No info for any of them just the bookies playing silly buggers as usual I expect

    Baa Humbug More competitive for sure but the only real attraction is the Many Clouds

    Third Time Lucki becoming a price I may not be able to leave alone.

    Nicholls horse is a ridiculous price, literally guessing rather then actual form in the book.

    Gezzus Triple Trade has drifted to 16/1 on the machine....not to worry placed 3rd in the end

    Double trouble both Ill Ridoto and Third Time Lucki beaten but Tom Cannon needs some wing mirrors.......miles clear he's knocked hell out of the winner for no reason

    Brain dead ride by Skelton on TTL and set it up for Edwardstone. I followed wilsonl in on it (got 10/3 this morning) as he was higher-rated over hurdles than TTL and entitled to be better over fences. But Skelton made it easier for him.

    Not exactly out of characther either, terrible terrible jockey who gets it wrong so often, zero composure.

    Like writing a suicide note, with the tactics from the Skeltons
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done
