    Now that was impressive. Gold Cup contender next year? Stayed every yard after being right at the head of affairs all the way. Most impressive performance of the meeting so far by some way.

    Proved his doubters wrong, though obviously disappointing Cailan Alainn came down.

    Good performance today, but not sure quite how strong a race it was.  Would be interested to see how he is ridden if taken on for the lead and the effect it would have on his jumping.

    Hope to see him in some of the big contests in 2007/8!

    Couldn’t fault Denman, but it’s tricky knowing the strength of the form as there didn’t look much in it apart from the Irish mare, who fell.

    What does Nicholls do next season with Kauto, Denman and presumably Star De Mohaison?

    Now if he was Michael Dickinson…..

    Would You Consider Purchasing A Pacemaker For Denman?

    Personally I would because it would surely increase his chances not to have to do all the donkey-work himself. In an ideal scenario he would track the leader for as long as possible – hopefully opening a gap to the chasing pack – and then kick from a long way out. Many have commented on Kauto Star’s ‘improved’ jumping this season but it is one thing jumping to maintain a position and another to make ground. I would still have doubts about both the jumping and stamina.

    I would wait until nearer the time to see the confirmed runners’ list.

    There has been talk of Halcon Genelardais running in the Gold Cup who may be up with the pace, other than that i cannot see who would actually take Denman on for pace, unless Aces Four runs of course.

    A Pacemaker?

    I didn’t think there was anything wrong with Denman’s heart :D

    I think some try to over complicate matters some times, this thread and sea dogs jockeys instructions thread are two good examples. I had to laugh at emphasis Simon Holt put on the last fence and it’s possible consequences in the King George. If the horse is good enough he will win :P

    Why does he need a pacemaker when he has shown he’s fully capable of making the running himself? It’s only ‘the hard way’ when they go too quick.

    I agree with davidjohnson. Denman is the type of horse that isn’t dependent on others he’s uncomplicated you can put him anywhere. He just does his own thing at his own pace I don’t see the need for a pacemaker.

    Exotic Dancer would be more needy IMO.
