Take Kauto Star out of the Gold Cup who is left

Exotic Dancer

<br>You can do that with any race take the two highest rated out and devalue it.

Kauto Star has a rating no horse that has run in a Gold Cup has achieved since Desert Orchid and Exotic Dancer has a RPR (rating varies slightly between others) of 175 two pounds higher than last years winner. So I don’t see how it can be a worse Gold Cup certainly than last year. Take the top two out of last years Gold Cup and whats the top rated horse 160 odd?

State Of Play, The Listener young and improving quality horses (The Listener has a rating of 170 by the way), Lami is an excellent bench mark and My Will is a tough bugger who’s been carrying big weights in handicaps yet I doubt very much he’ll make the first four.

Beef Or Salmon is another horse rated 170.
