What a race! What a finish!! Up hill on that ground…he looked like he’d just joined in. Well done everyone on him especially those who were following him all year. WD Allaho and Minella Indo and the others acquitted themselves decently too, there was nothing that didn’t deserve to be there, I even got a good run for my Aye Right bet.
Well done winners, bloody lucky b’s. LOL.
The third best horse in the race – Champ – wins.
Pace of the race, touch too free and a last fence blunder. Without just one of those happening Minella Indo would’ve won.
I still think Champ would have won Darren- he was closing so fast- but agree with you about the jumping in the white heat of a Gold Cup. Nobody like HdB to get horses jumping well (Put The Kettle on might not have the biggest engine but she jumped like a dream in a beautiful rhythm yesterday).
