A horse like Crosspark, admirable as he is, may not have a high enough handicap rating to get on over the 25 Elliott horses that will get in. (He’s 142 now, same as Joe Farrell who just snuck in this year).
Talking of Venetia, I would have loved to have seen Yala Enki in a soft ground GN.
Robinsfirth is another admirable chaser who I’d like to see in the 2020 race.
Well the dust has settled on GN2019,
For GN2020………how weird does that sound,it’s like a space age date…..
Gone in early on NATIVE RIVER 25/1…….
Think the national will be tailor-made for him,can’t really see him going down
the GOLD CUP route again
Interested in ANY SECOND NOW and DISCORAMA,if aimed at GN2020…..
we’re would NATIVE RIVER go then mike,he would be just be making the numbers up in the GOLD CUP,although the owners don’t like the race I think money talks and there’s a lot of cash on offer to win a GN,also there’s not that many races he could be aimed at
