As I read it, Reet was responding to the contention that BoS was and had been Gold Cup class for years. It all depends on what you consider ‘Gold Cup Class’ to mean. I don’t think he can be considered to be Gold Cup Class in the narrow sense (a real contender to win it) because he has demonstrated that he is unable to remain competitive and sustain his jumping at the pace that race is usually run at.

He is clearly a very good and consistent Grade 1 horse, just not amongst the very best. I suspect Reet’s talk of ‘mickey mouse races round gaffe tracks’ was a little tongue in cheek.
