    Easy 28/1 winner of the King George, the only threat seeemed to be his stablemate who unseated at the last.

    I had a punt on Asterion Forlonge but I always suspected staying on his feet would be the problem. Horse has bags of talent but is an absolute psychopath in the air and isn't learning at all. Same issue in the John Durkan a few weeks back, was going better than anything in the race, awful error 3 out and unseated. He's lucky to walk way from a fall like yesterday unscathed.

    I'm far from convinced he was getting past the winner anyway. I'll be keeping an eye on Clan Des Obeaux again late this season, he'll pick up some nice races in the spring.

    I backed CDO yesterday, can't decide if it was lack of a run or the going went against him, thought I was on the winner half way round the home turn.

    Thanks for letting us know, I was on Asterion Forlonges in that other race, and thought surely to God he'd learned from that so stuck a cautionery £25 on him in the King George. He might not have learned from it but I'm bloody sure I have!

    Only 10 weeks to the Cheltenham festival, I’ll be there hopefully this year, as long as Omicron doesn’t bugger things up! I was trying to find a couple that could look value for money come the day and the first one is Concertista in the mares hurdle on the Tuesday, she’s been running over fences this season but when interviewed in RTV last week Willie Mullins hinted that he thought the mares chase at the festival might be a year too soon and could go to the mares hurdle instead, now at 10-1 that could look cracking value come the day. Second one I looked at was Icare Allen in the triumph on the Friday, JP has a good recent record in this race and Icare Allen did well to win 1st time up as got sandwiched at 1st hurdle then had to switch and made up good ground down far side. Only a juvenile hurdle but I was impressed the way he won in the end. 14-1 at the moment. Anyone got anything else lurking under the radar?

    NH Racing is a tough sport and sometimes the unfortunate happens, this is a quite moving tribute to Master Tommytucker who died after racing yesterday.

    I watched the race.....horrible to see.

    I know we all like to look for some value for money at Cheltenham, but the Champion Hurdle looks done and dusted already, Honeysuckle looks pretty unbeatable and trading at 4/7 and 1/2.

    I was at Musselburgh today and watched Honeysuckle in the betting shop. There was a proper gasp when she eased away on the home turn.

    It's going to take a mishap or something very, very special to stop her at Cheltenham.

    What a mess Oisin Mutphy has ended up in. Hope he can come back strong from this
