Seagull,

I am fully aware of how insurance – both bloodstock and this sort of thing works having worked in that industry.

For Betfair to pay 250k to save 750k seems bizarre in the extreme to me – particularly when they were prepared to offer 33s about Best Mate achieving such an eventuality.

<br>Kauto Star has won two of the three legs already and is still 6/4 to win the Gold Cup, yet you believe that it is a 3/1 shot to win the bonus from the outset?

<br>Incidentally, how many King George winners have gone on to win at Cheltenham three months later? Kicking King, Best Mate, Desert Orchid……..<br>
