    I wonder where they go next with him. He took to 3 miles easily.

    I wonder if there is a temptation to aim him at the Denman Chase at Newbury and if he does well there to have a shot at the Gold Cup? That was the route Coneygree took when he won the GC as a novice. It's easy to get carried away but that was awesome yesterday.
    They said that they were heading for the French Gold Cup this season.

    Yeah, the French arenít obsessed with the festival like the press are over here, looks an absolute beast to be honest, heíll take some stopping in King George next year.

    Fair enough.

    With Galopin Does Champs and Fastorslow entered it's a better field at Leopardstown imo.
    Brilliant performance from Galopin Des Champs, never put a foot wrong. 👏

    Very impressive from Galopin Des Champs.

    I was all over him from early doors for the GC last year and got some half decent prices. Won't get anything like that again this year but I don't see many reasons why he shouldn't win again. Best priced 11/8 currently.

    Has anyone else seen the altercation between Patrick and Danny Mullins at Limerick today?

    Patrick won the race but immediately after the line there was a bit of finger pointing and a clear disagreement. Post race PM was asked about it and said:

    "I tried to drop my lad, get him back a bit and get a breather into him. I told Danny going out that there will be a gap down my inside at the second-last, do not come for it. He hasn't listened to me. Luckily he hasn't got the two of us beat, but it didn't matter."

    That seems more than a bit dodgy to me. A horse in the colours of one of your flasghip owners (Ricci) and his jockey telling another he isn't allowed to try and exploit a gap. The stewards certainly wanted an explanation and were dissatisfied with the one given so have referred it for further investigation.

    Incredible ride by Joe Anderson on Transmission at Plumpton today. Almost fell off after a mistake, unbelievable recovery to stay on, made it over 3 or 4 fences without his irons and managed to win. Well done son.

    Aye he looked bang on yesterday.

    When Fastorslow came to challenge just after 2 out you thought he was maybe in a bit trouble but when Townend closed the door on the gap it was game over. He's not a particularly flashy sort but he's the type I like because he just knows his job. An inch of rein let out and the jockey getting a wee bit lower in the saddle and he was away. Won comfortably being ridden out with hands and heels. He's undoubtedly the one to beat in March.

    State Man just took good in the Irish Champion Hurdle.

    Nicholls and Cobden 3 from 3 at Musselburgh today and will fancy their chances in the next as well. Having a wee dabble at 9/1.

    I think Elliott's horse went wrong in an earlier race as well.

    That home straight did look like a ploughed field after the first couple of races which always increases the risk of a horse landing wrong or taking a misstep.

    I drove past when the last was on, it looked awful.

    Awful news from Charing Point to point today as well. Jockey Keagan Kirkby, who rode for Paul Nicholls, was killed after his horse ran through the wing of a fence. 25 years old.

    It's a really difficult sport to love sometimes.
