<br>Thought he’d win by further but having a battle for a change might be a good thing rather than just hacking in on the bridle as he has all season.
Immediately after the race I thought that Ruby should have kicked on turning in to put the race to bed as he did on the horses previous outings this season.
However, I’ve been thinking about Kauto’s jumping, and it appears to me that he only makes these mistakes when he sees daylight – Exeter Nov Ch – in front 3rd last, Tingle Creek – in front last fence, King George – upsides 4th last, in front last and Aon – in front last.
Maybe he will anyway because of stamina doubts but I definitely think that Ruby should keep hold of the horse’s head until after the last in the Gold Cup using his 2-mile speed to pounce on the run-in….
I’m not going to tell Ruby/PN how to ride but I might write to PN to bring this up.
