Entered this weekend in a Grade 2 at Navan over 2m4f, ABSOLUTE NOTIONS, an unbeaten son of Milan, looks an ideal Albert Bartlett type as he was all stamina on his hurdles debut and already proven on spring ground having bolted up in a bumper in May, which prompted Robcour to part with €370k. He jumped well and showed plenty of battle when briefly headed at Navan and doesn’t look like the type to throw the towel in, in what’s often the most gruelling race at the Cheltenham Festival. He’s trained by Gordon Elliott – tick – who has already been quoted as saying he’ll be going up in trip – tick. With the likes of Sandor Clegane and Hiddenvalley Lake significant market movers in recent days, I don’t see why Absolute Notions should be twice their price.
