<br>He’s never been one of my favourites but I have marked him down as a great of HIS GENERATION and an Irish chasing great.

For me, if you are only beaten 3.5L in a Gold Cup as he was in 2004, you are Gold Cup class.

Best Mate was the far better horse with a 3-1 head-to-head record. The only time BoS came out on top was when BM had the virus.

Maybe that 2004 Gold Cup was Beef Or Salmon’s for the taking, a bit like it being Henman’s year at Wimbledon when Goran Ivanisevic won.

Can fully understand why he was patiently ridden that year but maybe that was his only real chance…..
