Tyestes Chase Gowran Thursday
I’ve been waiting for this race and my certain pick here for a while. I think if My Murphy repeats last year run of the same mark in the same conditions he has to go very close here. He has more or less the exact same preparation as last time and the form of last year race is stellar to say the least. He was 19 length’s clear of the rest just 8 lengths behind Djakadam when only in receipt of 6 lbs. the 3rd and 4th Goonyella and Gallant Oscar have surly only added to the form line after that race and surly the trainer has this as his target for this year. 20/1 is way too big and 1m only going 1pt EW here as its antepost, if that price stays around until there is NRNB will be adding another 1pt EW.
1 PT EW 20/1 Bet365/Lads/sporting/Stan
What a performance, he was prominent from the start which racecourse well and held of the hot favorite for a great win. ! year in the making and i only had 1pt EW deserves a bit of a rap on the knuckles
What a finish in the Thyestes as My Murphy goes one better than last year and wins @gowranpark https://t.co/MUgG28JqFV

Best of luck with your 20/1 shot in the Thyestes Handicap Chase.
At Fishers Cross (AFC) has got to be over priced at 6/1 in one of the earlier races on the card? I’m sure Alpha Des Obeaux is an improver and both Martello Tower and Briar Hill could also have more to offer but AFC looked much happier when last seen in the World Hurdle, will like the going, keeps the blinkers on and is reported to have had a ‘few issues’ sorted out by the vets over the summer. I’m not saying he will win but 6/1 looks very big?
I really like AFC in the world hurdle Ew on good ground at a huge price and I’m kind of hoping he won’t do anything to reduce his price .
Very well done on My Murphy, never even made my short list!
Whilst I lost money on AFC today he ran well enough to suggest the World Hurdle is still a realistic aim.
Are you still as red hot on your 20/1 shot Aidan?
I have done him for a point each way but really like your rationale and may add another one ew or possibly two win only as the place would still over my stake.
I still like it but the race has turned out deeper than I expected . I won’t be adding an extra bet as I suggested I might . I reckon he is about a 12/1 shot to win so wouldn’t put anyone off topping up at 20/1 as that’s a decent margin.
Good luck .
I’m delighted and disgusted I didn’t top up in equal measure!!
Great tipping again Aidan!!
Back of the net. Great stuff Aidan
