Loosen My Load or Noble Prince for the Jewson? Wishfull Thinking!!

The in-form Phillip Hobbs yard is looking for further success at the 2011 Festival and they could very well have more in Wishful Thinking. This one has been the talking horse on course and around the villages this week and is fully expected win this new Jewson Sponsored race by many.

Wishfull Thinking

Wishfull Thinking

If anything will get to the Hobbs trained horse it could be Mr Gardner. He will tack along in front, but that could be the main problem. This course as we know doesn't really suit a front runner and its the hardest task of them all to lead all the way. His third behind Medermit and Captain Chris looks all the better for the latters win on Tuesday.

Loosen My Load was only a neck behind Captain Chris here in November. That makes his price look attractive but Henry De Bromheads charge will have to do better than last time at Leopardstown when he found himself behind Paul Nolans Noble Prince. That one has only ran threetime over fences, wining once and finishing second to Realt Dubh on the other two occasions

Robinson Collonges represents Paul Nicholls and as such has to be kept an eye on. Was well beaten here when down the field in the Vote AP Gold Cup and although this is easier, will not be afforded the mistakes he made that day.

Mr Thriller doesn't look like he is suited by t he undulations of this track and is therefore passed over and the fate awaits for Radium, who too would be of more interest elsewhere.

The race looks to be fought out by the form yards and horses Both Noble Prince and Loosen My Load get maximum respect but there is a wall of noise about Wishful Thinking we will not ignore

Recommendation: WISHFUL THINKING (win)
