The Arkle is different to other 2m novice chases as they go off really quickly and turn it into a stamina test.  Maybe this is one of the reasons it is becoming such a good trial for the Gold Cup.  Anyway, with the going being soft/heavy, the tough fences and the fast pace I think that MY WAY DE SOLZEN stands out a mile.  I’ve been very impressed with Fair Along this season but MWDS has proven class, is proven at the Festival, jumps like a stag, stays all day.  As long as Alan King doesn’t have a rush of blood to the head and decide on the Ryanair I make this horse one of the 2 bankers of the meeting with Denman.
