Don’t want to sound harsh, considering Mouse’s dreadful past couple of days, but doesn’t this really highlight what happens when connections wrap a star horse in cotton wool?

Connections of the horse have clearly built WOA’s season around the Gold Cup, running him in races on the wrong kind of ground – not seeking out big races on the other side of the pond on better ground (and not having him fit enough to win any of the races he has run in so far this season), with the intention of having him spot-on for Friday 16th March.

Mouse Morris has clearly been studying at the ‘Henrietta Knight School of Training’.

Fair play to Kauto Star’s connections – they have a top horse, and campaign him appropriately. A Tingle Creek, a King George, and probably a Gold Cup – all in the same season.

Kauto Star’s connections clearly have the bigger BALLS, and have been rewarded accordingly.
