    Ah Benbens…

  3. kj says:

    Saw a still from a vt the other day and thought ‘that horse looks good’ watched it …it was only Benbens! trainer said something about him being a bit too old,.. but deserving a win.

    Please tell me to give up on Lord Windermere(had to think for a minute when Kerry Lee said there was a GC winner in the field, though!). So upset about Sir Valentino, a horse I’ve always liked. Sad postscript to what has been a great days racing. Happy with my ante post bet on Definitely Red for the National. Up in Northumberland for the Borders National but it has been cancelled; we would have been frozen there, though.

  5. Mike N says:

    Moreen no GN for Definitely Red as of yesterday according to trainer.

    ‘The plan will be to be back at Aintree in April for the Grade One Bowl, I think.”

    Was going through some racing tweets and saw this fellow. No one seems to take a blind bit of notice of him though! That is a pretty amazing return for one day. I expect any losing bets are deleted however!

    Lovely win by Sizing John today, pulled away nicely there

  8. Mike N says:

    Sure did Jackie. I thought he’d win and was surprised he wasn’t favourite.

    Loved Un De Sceaux there. Just lobbed along on his own time and strung them out like washing. :D

    I am watching the dwindling career of Rebecca Curtis when it suddenly struck me. Have you ever seen Rebecca Curtis and Calibos from the 1981 version of Clash of the Titans in the same room together? Me neither.

  16. moreen says:

    Thanks Mike; my ante post bets have gone awry this year. Even noticed my National Native River bet is win not ew; not sure how that happened.

  17. Mike N says:

    Wild West Wind up from OR138 to 143 after Saturday’s win so not harshly punished and should get in the Welsh National with that.
    Has won at Chepstow and record in soft/heavy is 2F312111.

    Regarding On The Blind Side’s win yesterday he looks more a horse for the 3 mile novice at Aintree. That’s his race. He seems to hit a flat spot every time he runs so he looks vulnerable to the best of the Irish at Cheltenham, so place prospects look to be his best hope in my opinion. Pile on for Aintree though if the very best of the Irish swerve Aintree for Punchestown.

    Nicky Henderson response to a question yesterday….

    Hi Nicky, confused by your plans for ON THE BLIND SIDE; Why are you looking at the Ballymore (2m4f) Thought the run in November was screaming for 3 miles? Stayed on unbelievably well!

    NH.
    If you were just looking at the Cheltenham race and took it literally, yes, you might be right but can you honestly say that he looked slow at Sandown? I will say that he had been getting a little bit of sore shins and my opinion was that instead of getting outpaced coming down the hill, I don’t think he enjoyed coming down it, as he was likely feeling his shins, so I said to Nico ignore Cheltenham and ride him a completely different way, ride him like he’s got lots of tactical speed, which he clearly showed he’s got. What we saw at Sandown, we simply can’t go three miles he’s not as slow as he made out, believe me! He’ll go to Newbury for the Challow and then we’ll put him away until March.
