Cracking record

Its not just that. he (apart from once maybe) has looked embarrasingly outclassed. at least the wayward lads of this world (who couldnt handle the course) made a decent fist of it

SHL. which one is it then? :) <br>

<br> think we all know he hasnt much chance of winning it without lots of rain

All the above races were Gr1 which were run on going better than Sft so lets dispel the bulls**t <br>myth that the horse needs bottomless ground to be at his best.

Well I didnt write the second piece.  My opinion is that he does need heavy ground at this age of his life since he appears to jump too slowly to give himself a chance on good ground.  Happy now??

The bottom line for me clivex is that he clearly is a top class chaser….not arkle ….just a top class chaser but one who somehow doesnt seem tailored to the unique challenge of the gold cup because thats what the cheltenham gold cup offers …a unique challenge.

I dont see anything even controversial about that statement.
