Not to be, alas – Mr Dow Jones has proven this season that you can still defy a career high or near-career high mark at 14 or 15, but then he operates at a far lower level than old Spotty does.
I’d like to see him train on, and the noises from Enda Bolger after the race seemed encouraging in that regard, although realistically his best chance of adding another Cheltenham cross-country race to his tally would probably now lie in the conditions’ event in November rather than any of the handicaps thereafter.
A gallant effort, all the same.
