Walsh thinks Put The Kettle On is a “ridiculous” price1 credit

He was breaking down the Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase, where Mount Ida, Elimay and Concertista battle for patronage.

But there is a lower name that caught Walsh’s attention.

And, given her form and track history, the 42-year-old was well within her rights to single it out.

Last year’s Champion Chase winner Put The Kettle On, coached by Henry of Bromhead, won 10-1.

The eight-year-old won just under £170,000 with a victory in the Championship race last year under jockey Aidan Coleman.

Walsh said he thinks given his history the horse, who was a disappointing last about 42 lengths behind Mount Ida in his last run, has experience on his side.

Asked about his choice, Walsh said: “Do I see Concertista or Elimay being shorter in the penultimate race of the Festival? No, I don’t think so.

“So from an ante post perspective, the value is in Put The Kettle On or Zambella.

“Put The Kettle On at 10-1, has achieved way more than any of these mares and if she bounces back it’s a ridiculous price.”

Walsh was at pains to emphasize that this was an open revival, but highlighted the form of the concert performer trained by Willie Mullins.

The eight-year-old picked up two quick wins at the end of last year after a second seed behind Black Tears in the Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle last year.

Walsh said: “Concertista is a very good mare, she’s a low and precise jumper, the trip shouldn’t be a problem for her, but I think it’s a competitive race.

“A lot of people would argue about that, but I think you could pick any of the two here and pick the wrong one.”
