There’s only one horse in the Gold Cup betting that I wouldn’t lay against Kauto Star, and that’s In Compliance. He looked a potential class act when debuting over fences and has always been held in high regard. I don’t think there was any fluke about his victory over War of Attrition last time and, whilst quicker ground is a slight worry, I’d fancy him to run a big race.

Despite the obvious speed influence in Kauto’s pedigree, there is some hope that the 3m 2.5f trip will prove within his range; both Barton and Ivoire De Beaulieu appear on the dam’s side, the latter being (prior to his two outings over here this season) a very useful long-distance animal.

The basics for me are if Kauto stands up, he wins, but In Compliance looks a dangerous rival should difficulties occur.
