    If ever there is horse more likely to make into a Gold Cup horse in the coming years I have yet to see him.

    Ive liked him for some time now

    Travels wonderfully well and keeps finding enough. His jumping of hurdles is superb. Despite narrow distance, looked a winner along way out. Still alot to come

    Rare that i back a horse not on ideal ground but this one has oozed class so far this season, so went with it :biggrin:

    I was never convinced that he needed heavy. I thought last season he looked good when he got a test of stamina. It was just that because he was running over 2m he only got that stamina test when the ground was bottomless. Then at Aintree he ran well over two and a hal;f on soft and again everyone saw the ground and thought that was the factor.

    Couldn’t agree more that My Way looks a future chasing star: he has the size and scope, jumps superbly and stamina is his forte. I hope that they send him chasing next term (his potential clashes with Denman already have my mouth watering) and, given that there appears to be little strength in depth among the established Gold Cup horses and the Sun Alliance Chase didn’t throw up any stars, he may even win the big one next year.

    That was the best race of the festival so far for me. I’ve always liked My Way and it was so thrilling to see him win! Although saying that, I couldn’t watch the final furlong and hid in the kitchen with my hands over my ears:biggrin:

    Alan King quoted as saying that he’s too scared to school My Way over fences: let’s hope that he changes his mind sooner rather than later as, as I have already said, the top of the chasing tree is in desperate need of some real quality.

    Read that Y and he was jesting a bit. this horse is a natural jumper with a fine head carriage and superb engine of course…

    I think DJ is right (hell hate me saying that im sure….)

    Finally you see the light Clivex. :biggrin:  I can see it now, 2010 and My Way de Solzen is bidding for a third Gold Cup, up the final hill what’s this finishing like a train to deny him? A 14-y-o Beef Or Salmon who finally sticks together a decent round of jumping at Prestbury Park.

    Sort of horse hard not to like, races with alot of enthusism and style. Reminds me alot of how Crystal D’Ainay was as a younger horse though obviously this fella is a good bit better and more reliable. Should jump a fence with some ease I would have thought.

    War of Attrition, Kicking King and Best Mate all finished second in the Supreme Novices before their Gold Cup victories. So perhaps this years second Straw Bear is a future gold cup winner.

    What about Wild Passion ? Second in the 2005 Supreme Novices and a good fourth in this years arkle. Being trained by Noel Meade must be a bit of negative though given his festival record.

    <br>Completely different type of animal: compare the way they jump hurdles. Besides, how does the failure of one animal to adapt to chasing affect the prospects of another?
