    Terrible shame. But lets not lambaste connections. You couldnt predict that.

    What terrible, terrible news.

    Feel so sorry for Jim Lewis & Henrietta Knight – must be absolutely devastating for them.

    Very sad. Connections must be gutted given the way they have looked after him so well.

    Very, very sad news. His achievement in winning three Gold Cups was remarkable and, although I am sure it of little comfort to those nearest to the horse, his exploits have ensured that his name will always be remembered.

    Sad, sad news.

    My thoughts go out to connections at the same time as my memory focuses on the three Gold Cups.

    Like Persian Punch, he’ll be sadly missed.

    RIP Best Mate.<br>

    Talk about the highs and lows of the game – half an hour later RACING DEMON wins the novice.

    I have just heard about Matey – unbelievable. A sad day for all connections as well as all horse racing lovers.

    I am gutted, I feel honoured to have seen him in Leopardstown in 2003 and 2004. A great horse.
