    Yeah, this was a terrific race, but so should next year be. Hopefully Topofthegame will be back in business too.

    Well done to ABP and connections and all backers!
    Thrilled to see Lostintranslation run such a good race, especially as stable form been disappointing this week.

    It was a fantastic race and clearly one to remember. So many perfect jumps, so many chances and how many times do you see “ten in line at the third last”???

    I have to say that the sport has changed a lot over the past 6-7 years, but it is a very good change. One to more professionalism, especially from the Irish side.

    I hope Al Boum Photo now starts to get the praise he deserves. He was a good winner last year but a lot of people seemed underwhelmed by it, presumably because he was a big price and so were the placed horses.

    Now he has won a second GC and beat just about every good staying chaser out there with the exception of Topofthegame (and I suppose Native River as well but I cannot believe he would have won).

    I expect Nicholls cannot wait to get Topofthegame back. A line through Santini would have seen him as the winner. And he has to realise now that Clan Des Obeaux is not a Cheltenham horse. Maybe it might finally dawn on NTD that Bristol De Mai is not either!
