"Can't comprehend how hard it was for her to win for the brahmans and certain infrared and Kenny Alexander who I taught by the way spoke so well after it is. He did say like it's just a horse race at the end of the day like this is not real life real life is what happened to Henry and the family and had her and all that. That's real life. This is just a harsh race and I thought that was incredible statement. From Amanda had just won the mayor's hardly tell them with his top class mayor and look, they deserve all the lopping off. Phenomenal race, there is much more to say about it on either it was just a fitting end to a great career for honeysuckle and a brilliant ride by Rachel and I'm also of envoy exactly what Barry said would be back next year would have vengeance and Johnny bourke can take great credit for the right he gave that mayor as well. And yeah, it was fantastic. Great results. Yeah, Johnny was mustered and last very little in defeat, I wonder about her missing out on her prep run. She had to come out of Warwick when she was supposed to run that probably didn't help, but nobody really wants to be cheering on anything other than only circle after the fact. And yeah, take that grain Broadway. As he sat there watching the crowd go absolutely ballistic. Did he think back to that article about her? Honolulu is never done anything special in her life. You try telling that to the thousands of people losing their minds on champion hurdle Tuesday. It's very easy to have a pop at somebody after the fact when that was some absolute garbage nonsense that he wrote. I was delighted for a connection that delighted for Rachel delighted for Henry and there was a young fellow that was being hugged constantly by Henry and he was bringing him along. He never let him out of his sight. And it was shark island zoom fellow. It was tubbs mcnally, but I think young shark hanlon's young fellow was there as well. But tubbs, Thompson's great friends with him, sharks, young fellow, was one of his best friends. And it's a measure of the man that he would do that, like it's a massive day, the eyes of the world are on you. There are so many people who were questioning. Is this the right thing to do to run with this? She should be in the champion hurdle. And she comes along and wins, and they're all thinking of Jack the whole time, but also even just having Jack's friends there. There's just so classy. There's such lovely people. And what a story. There was also a huge rumor going around the Irish racing circles that this was going to be Rachel's last child. It didn't come to pass, but if it had what a way to bow out, but she will hopefully kick on for many, many more years because she is an absolutely superb jockey. As was proven again the next day in the queen mother champion chase, how did captain Guinness finish second in the champion chase? Probably because of Henry and Rachel. But it was all about one horse. Anurag Amin, who absolutely destroyed them, stone never went to yard. What was the money saying before the off on the beta exchange, Barry? Was it all about an argument? Was it all about Edward stone? Had he lost a leg? It was it's a race that I'm still scratching my head that aside for a minute there was a massive path laid on course. I think it was a 400,000 to win 480 or something like that. I wonder who that was. I think the other one fair idea who it was. Tony blue. Yeah, I like that what you said there. Yeah, look, it's like me or you having a flavor on it, but I think listen, this race, you go back 6 weeks ago. It was only 6 weeks over the same course and distance and possibly it was a near enough to say ground. And editor G John for phone battled head up the hill. Edward stone came from well off the pace to win. And look, I know it's all about having the horses ready on the day that it matters, but look at clarence House is not the beast and ease that stuff. You'd like to think to have them ready for that, but just looking at the form of the race, you know, editor to G is beaten turkey flag length. And when you think he had beaten maybe an ergonomic status in this nearly a 50 lens torn around. And something similar for Edwards now, that he's 29 lens last. The last finisher pushed back to winner in so so strongly supported. They have been vying for favors and for the last three, four weeks, even after that ad run as gentlemen declare in teams, editor regime, but an arrogant von AC morning from 7 to four to 65 editor or Edward styled slight event the other way, but still well supported. And they were only two horses really backed in the market and wasn't much support really for editors in the 7 horse race because the each way angle had gone on the day, but look, it was very evident from very early on that an arrogant man was going to be the one he torched ads on after the second fence, the position he had him in. John for four and he never ever, ever looked in any danger and altered impressive performance, but I had the current household as a mystery but look if he comes back there next year on those tasks and be impossible to beat a gamble. Yeah, and look, it is a spectacular turnaround in form editor jeet beat him fair and square on trials there yet when the clarence House was rescheduled for that card. And an origami turns it around by 34 and three quarter lengths. And that's just editor to the G Edward stone fell out the back of the telly, but obviously didn't run his race and the quote from Alan King today was they're going to do a full MOT on them and he's probably done for the season. Something clearly wasn't right with them. And we'll wait to see what emerges. But you can only beat what's put in front of you. It didn't happen for him on the new course in the clarence House, but back to the old course and with the experience of having jumped the white marking fences and schooling over those Sutton as well. It was a complete and total turnaround from them. This is the inauguration that we saw last year, Dennis. And if he remains this in argument, next year, then we're going to have one hell of a clash between himself and his stablemate el fabiola. Ah yeah, I am at Loki's a phenomenal race horse. I mean, as two miles go on soft ground, he's electric. I mean, she might bounce him out handy and take no prisoners, Paul was great on him. You know, he was just, he jumped from fence to fence he never looked like NBA. And look, I think the tumor division is a big question about anyway. Now I think you know he'll have el fabiola to have a look at now next year. But again, that's from the Willie camp, but exactly what Barry said, if he turns up again in this sort of farm next year underground is soft, he's unbeatable. He is on beat. I'll just say one thing about Edward stone and Gary Moore's house. In the current house, again, the children trials there on that ground, I've said it 20 times on this show, it absolutely kills them. So close to the festival, everywhere about her after running at the Dublin racing festival underwater the children trails there because the ground is so bad at that meeting. They just get such hard races. I wouldn't be say that looking back and at Edward stone probably wouldn't have got near enter to me anyway. But enter to me just didn't get involved in a dogfight that day and the current house and see came into because he made a mistake the last and he just wasn't involved and it's clearly wasn't right for the day as well. He was obviously trained in front of champion JS and I was a great trainer performance grant right. Spectacular to look at and to see them to Myers is brilliant. There is a question mark in my mind about two miles at the moment championships versus both yeah, I look at Edward stone will be back for he got finished at the current sales that finished him.

"Just think that sometimes I kind of like you know I like to have a couple of bites of the cherry and I think those would be the two that I'd go for. Yeah, I'm firmly in the HMS seahorse camp. Mostly because of the trainer angle, pulled Nolan has had 11 runners with one winner and 6 place horses at the last 5 cheltenham festivals. I actually have a breakdown of his record because he's very selective. Even if he goes to shut them extremely selective and incredibly successful when he does make the journey over. I promise you this is worth it. Here we go. 20 18, he'd one runner. Second. 2019 two runners. Get a second. 2020 forerunners, a second and a third, 2021, one runner, the worst one. And last year, three runners, with a third and a fourth. And HMS seahorse has got to be very high on that list because they were, they were pretty bullish about him in the boodles last year. I thought you were on a cracker that day. He was only beaten three and a half lengths. Lacked a bit of experience, put a blinder, they tried him in grade one company. No good. You want a flat handicap? At the Cora and last day, he, I know you can point at Felix desi and say, well, he's not, he's not up to much these days, but at least Felix deji was well handicapped. And he still beat him. So I like him an awful lot for this race. The only thing I don't like about him is his price. Of 8 O one. And the other one, I was very interested in no ordinary Joe, and I probably still am. He's much better than that for a hurdle run last time out. And horses who ran in that race have a good record in the county and the coral cup and the county for that matter. It tends to be a good trial for both of them. He has to overcome. Probably bouncing the last day, and I'd say that's exactly what it was. He'd been off the track for a year when he won a kempton. That was a big run. And then at newbury on good ground, maybe he's just bounced. Back to cheltenham on soft ground. We'll suit him. And it's not that long ago that he ran a cracking race behind west cork in a great wood. So I'd give him a massive chance. And the other one that interested me was rihan. So I was delighted to hear you highlight Ryan Ben. Stuff good stuff. Spanish Harlem, I don't think is good enough to win a racer tell them. But he's on a very interesting Mark. And so I can see why he's at the head of the Martin pipe and some other races for cheltenham, specifically the Martin pipe. But re and B some fair and square the last day. And I think he's the better prospect of the two and the more likely winner. That was a big step forward from a disappointing run of punches down. He has one on soft ground. He's got experience of big field races and he represents Gordon Elliot. She's got a great record in this. So rhian and HMS seahorse were the two main ones with no ordinary Joe as a as a polite one for the British that would just throw in there. Nikki Henderson and JP, you've got a great record in this race too. So perhaps but rein and HMS seahorse will be my main to final selection, Ben. Yeah, just a quick look. We need you talking HMS seahorse I quickly run the full trends I hope for the race. Because I was always Paul Nolan snatch as well, the exceptional for it selectively. But each of my seahorse I think pretty often will pass all restaurants I have. So I think he's going to end up on a full start for the race. You will end up near the top of my fingers as well. So I would give a positive for HMS seahorse as well, but for this I will be on yourself and from feelings if they indeed go to the race. Okay, Lizzie. Yeah, HMS seahorse and might I. Okay, HMS seahorse and rhian for me with an honorable mention for ordinary joffe ends up winning it. He folds at the back of the telly. I never mentioned him once. The Queen mother champion chase, the feature race on day two, sees Edward stone in an ergo mean locked together at the head of the bedding. Both of them are 7 to four with bet duck, pay your money, take your choice, but it's not just as simple as a straight match because editor daji did beat them last time out. He's 5s. Put up a 25 to one by Barry Cole, so we know who he's cheering on. Gentlemen to me an impressive winner at the Dublin racing festival is a ten shot, nube negra, 20s, green tea, grounds probably gone against him 25s, fumble savola, 33 to one shot and captain Guinness, the outside of the field at 40s, Ben set the scene for the Queen mother champion chase. Here on the trends for this doesn't tell us anything that doesn't tell us. The ones at the heads of market are being the ones that also fit the profile of previous winners on the trends front. It does look to concern the sea currently ahead of the market and has to be said, however, editor digit. I think he's been given a run of the race in his last hours without taking anything away from him or the right and has given a bunch of been exceptional. He's taking advantage of the circumstances, which is all he could do. But I just have to expect writers of both an argument and Edward stone to keep the garden march closer in a state than he did in the client side of chase. I would expect them to turn the form around without one in the queen mother of the two an argument in an adverse stone. I'd be sad in the last years article when I was doing who I think we need to slight tweak a tactics to get the better of other digit or titration and argument. I think I'm going to be a little trickier to execute because I clearly doesn't perform to speak when he's held on to, but equally, if you guys know jewel in the front end where the G as only going to harm both the chances. So it's going to be very, very interesting to see how an argument is written. It's just those are potential for a very interesting tactical battle on the cards. And if I'm honest, I think it's going to be difficult for Paul Taylor and an argument I'm assuming Paul Taylor and will be the Joker. He's going to have to get tactics absolutely spawn. He's going to trade the fine line of not giving Edward two mushroom, but also not going into a ding dong paste you on the front end. And if that happens, or strong and just a couple went off them, points up the home street. Now, I did, as you mentioned, again, not my own forecast for 200 Karl Marx. You're both not actually on the 20 as well. Good friend of both years from talks for. I have said very much she runs shotgun purchase a spoiler to burn out our disease in front end, but I can see the amounts did not take the idea on board. And he's taken shotgun per 5 day stage. So chance missed our big Willy mistake. Big Willy style making a rare blunder. I'm sure. I'm sure. I'm sure rich Richie would have been delighted to have a horse in there as a spoiler. Easy job done. I mean mind you, after what happened with lossy mouth, I'm not slow. Yeah, maybe maybe she said, maybe I did go home and say, can we do that? And he's like, nope, taking them out. But anyway, he's not there. So Paul Turner is going to have to do a lot of thinking about how you'd raise the race. And it's also worth pointing out an argument with fit that negative start I mentioned and day one for Mullins horses when we did the supreme coverage. Williams horses are the faculty with runners coming in of being a beaten clear favor last time out the stars are two winners from 95 qualifiers for a 2% strike rate, 76% ball expectation. Those are run over to my 6 for a long or less last time. Zero from 76, an argument obviously was beaten odds on last time. So for all I respect them, fantastic horse has been, I think there's reasons to oppose an argument and I'm in the AdWords don't comp myself. I am too. But what about you, Lizzie Kelly? I'll keep it easy. I am too.

"Brave man's game, but was very quick to point out. You look at how good a plutarch was last year, he's still the horse everyone has to beat. How is this preparation been going? Yeah, it's definitely coming. You know, it's been the first half the season's been really frustrating and obviously paid off just didn't happen at all. We thought we were all set to go at Christmas and he just, whatever way he banged himself, he just wasn't right, so we couldn't. And so we had to just commit to going straight there. It's tough ask, but he's a very good horse, like you say he was extremely impressive last year. We feel he's coming all the time for us. So hopefully he'll arrive on schedule. Modern day training methods just seem to mean that it's not as important to get a run on the track for a racehorse as it once used to be a new top class facilities and are a top class trainer, but does it play in the back of your mind that he hasn't had a run going into the go cup? Yeah, absolutely. I suppose you look at all the stats and everything, but then there's probably not many that go into it without a run. Do you know so I suppose the numbers would be against him. But I mean, he lasted last year. He lost around at Christmas. So that was still a feral break. So yeah, you just love to have had one good run under your belt this season, but unfortunately we haven't, but like I said, he seems to be really coming to himself and hopefully the, you know, we're being led this way for a reason. And the one two in the race for the last two years have been absolute Manila indo just in different orders. That's quite a backup to have, particularly when he's won on New Year's Day in the saddles chase at tremor and the runner up has run such a big race against Gallup on the champ in statler. Those prep going. Yeah, really good. He seems in great form. Like you say, that was lovely day. It was a fantastic day for us at tremor. And we're really happy with them. You know, obviously he's been older now. He's ten, but he loves Chapman. He always comes to life at this time of year. And really excited to get him there. And in terms of his preparation is everything gone smoothly with him. Yeah, absolutely, spot on. He hasn't missed a beat, yeah. And you mentioned that being quite an emotional day on New Year's Day. There was a race running memory of Jack your lights on. I mean, there's no words, Henry. There's just no words, but when it comes to cheltenham, there is going to be another race in Jack's honor, the mayor's novice art is being renamed the Jack bromhead novices hurdle and you're going to have quite a bit of firepower for that race yourself. But just to even have his name on a race that day at the Shelton, first of all, that's I'm sure he's going to mean the world to you, your family, and your entire team. Absolutely. Yeah, it's very kind of Michael and Rhine all at rhino to do us. And. All our friends and family will be there. And they turned out to be. Tough, but great days. You know, so, yeah. Yep, it'll be a big day for us all. Yeah. I mean, look, it's tough and I can hear the emotion in your voice now. I did an event with shark handler on New Year's Day and I know his son was very close with Jack. And he was getting upset thinking about it as well. So it's going to mean an awful lot to yourselves. You've got four right now in ladybank, foxy girl, magical Zoe would probably be the leading contender, and she was very good at down royal last time. Yeah, she was really good. Yeah, when we put her away for the race, she was only young and just to try and get through the season, whether we said we'd be better to go there fresh. We were really happy with her. She worked well. And we look forward to it with her. Obviously, foxy girl was a good winner at Christmas. She's improving all the time. Ladybank was the surprise winner for us. Against princess Zoe, but delighted with her. So we think she's earned her her ticket, fell the line us was second to liberty dance in a good list of hurdles. She won her maiden article probably not that impressively, but I think she's better to be ridden, you know, I think we have to commit that day in fairless, but she's better ridden the way we wrote her when she was second deliberately dance. She's a nice mayor and I'd say we'll send still seal as well. So yeah, hopefully we'll have 5 in the race. Strong team envoy, I think you were pretty bullish for memory going into the king George and why wouldn't you be? He'd been really good on his comeback. It just didn't quite happen for him. Have you made a plan? Is it going to be the Ryanair or the gold cup? I'm assuming the rhino hoax. Yeah, we're all leaning towards the rhino. I'm pretty sure it'll be that. Yeah, he seems in good form. I can't really, I mean, a few of ours that we sent to England were disappointing. Obviously, a plutarch envoy on and then another horse Arctic Brazil. So whether it's coincidence, I'm not sure, but we've looked at everything and we hope they all seem good and a couple of runners since have run fine over there. So we just had to put a line through it, then Roy and he's in mighty form, I couldn't have been happier with him going to captain, but he just ran no race at all. And he's in mighty form again now. And yeah, we've trained them for their child new and I'd say it'll be the rhino and he loves it around there and yeah hoping for a big run. Champion bumper and belly more winner he's a serious player when it comes to cheltenham. I'm hoping a horse that will be a serious player is one that I'm involved in. I own a hair in a race horse you train called watch house cross. Oh yeah. I think I know the direction you're going to go in Henry, but which one are you leaning towards? In the end, we actually entered coral cup and Martin pipe. We felt the county probably would be quick for him. So or a bit sharp for him, should I say? So I would say I'm leaning towards the coral cup. I've yet to speak to your representatives, but I think the coral cup on the Wednesday is the race for him. I think he likes to bounce out and go. It really suits at a nice and we feel it's sort of supposed the old course is slightly easier to do that than the new course. So I would say would be leaning towards the coral cup without confirming anything with any of your representatives. I think Darren would pretty much be okay with that being said at the moment. Who's the main man at all of its Sunday? The syndicate involved. But he's an exciting horse. He's a big price, but he's a dark horse for good. And he's running style will really suit the car car. Yeah, I think so. I think so. And yeah, you know that run around that his win around nice was really impressive, you know? And yeah, so I think it'll suit and hopefully. I will probably drop the microphone on the day on talks for it if he goes and wins, so apologies now. But that'll be my excuse. I won't be his professional commented like Gary O'Brien commented on a horse winning the monster national one day and was ice cold handling it. Losing my mind. It's gonna be a deep champion chase this year, Henry, but captain Guinness definitely has ability.
