There is nothing to not like about BoS as a horse.  He is game and admirable, and ranks as capable of putting in top class performances.  But the simple fact is that he does not run his best races at Cheltenham.  To say that he has beaten several Gold Cup winners actually means nothing in the context of this debate.  Did he beat them in a Gold Cup?  Exactly.<br>Would you have opposed Red Rum in a National?  I would’nt.  However, i’d have opposed him every time around Doncaster or Newbury.  It’s horses for courses, and BoS isn’t the same horse at Prestbury Park over 3m2f in March.  That doesn’t in any way demerit his achievments elsewhere.
