Lol.

I see we agree on Zarkhanda and Shoreacres Very Happy .....I'm particularly keen on Shoreacres, in the last.

I think the Gold Cup is very open......I seriously think Neptune has an excellent chance, after seeing how he galloped and jumped his way to victory with AP a while back at Cheltenham.

I wish AP was riding Neptune tomorrow......I'd be even keener on his chances if he were ........but Choc will have to do lol.

Anyway, good luck tomorrow racingnut : )

The pinnacle of the week and it provided a thundering renewal of Chasings Blue Riband and some cracking support races.Long Run proved himself a chaser of very high calibre in plundering this to add to his King George crown,he has his own way of getting from one side to the other and the jockey can at times look a bit disorganised but once he levelled up for home there was only going to be one winner.Denman and Kauto ran screamers and lost no caste in defeat but its the young upstarts turn and its a brave man to say he wont defend it next year.Betfred offered 6s straight after the race for him to win again.What a Friend and Pandorama caught the eye of the rest and the former heads to Ayr for the Scottish National,he'll have a lump of weight on his back and the headgear might not work a second time but he ran the race of his life.The latter will probably go to Punchestown,he remains the best of the Irish staying brigade.
The Triumph isnt my favourite of races,it can ruin a horses career even before its got off the ground but the winner,Zarkandar might be a nice prospect for next year but its the fourth,Sam Winner who interests me,never travelled at all and at one point you'd have forgiven Ruby if he'd pulled up but he flew home from the second last.Another year on his back,softer ground and a longer trip will see this fellow in a very good light.
The County was its usual ultra competitive self and there was plenty in with a chance at the last,great finish with Ruby just denying AP and Get me Out of Here(best fiddled with horse in training?).One that caught my eye was Blackstairmountain,came from plum last with three to jump to finish about 6th or 7th.
Bobs Worth was all the rage for the Albert Bartlett and to be honest if you played him you never had a moments worry,travelled and jumped like an old hand and put the race to bed with a little change of gear at the last.He looks a nice novice chasing prospect for next season.
Didnt see the rest of the races so cant pass comment other than i hope you all backed the last winner Wink

Yes racingnut........it looks like Long Run could be the next big superstar in racing,and as long as he stays sound, and continues to enjoy his job, I can see him winning the next two or three Gold Cups.

Like you say, Denman and Kauto lost nothing in defeat, but they both had to make way yesterday for the new kid on the block.
