Decision Day today….Paddy Power at Cheltenham, or wait for the week after and go for the Betfair Chase at Haydock.
At nearly 12 years of age, and as Pricewise eloquently suggested, almost ready to collect his bus pass, you`d think life would be getting easier for my “veteran” superstar. Instead we`ve decided to hump 11st 12lbs round Cheltenham on Saturday as the better chosen option.
If he turns up in the same form as he did in March he`ll be thereabouts at the finish, but the oldest horse in the race giving varying lumps of weight away to younger horses doesn`t exactly fill me brim full of confidence. Nevertheless, as you all know, he always does his best, and with Dominic available to ride him, and the ground hopefully in his favour, plus Sue Saying he`s more like a 5yo this season the way he`s galloping, lets hope its March all over again!!
