As Peter O’Sulivan said today on one of the racing channels, in answer to this question, he was a freak; yhey had to rewrite the handicapping rules simply to accomodate him in the big handicaps. Sundials notwithstanding…!

Not that his monster weightcarrying ever stopped him – as far as I know. But the mere fact of the re-jigging of the handicapping rules for his benefit/detriment says it all, doesn’t it?
