Twist Magic was travelling well granted, but would he have been able to stay with Master Minded when he kicked away, very much doubt it. I’d still keep Tidal Bay on my good side though, 2 miles is too quick for him and I honestly think the King George is tailor-made for him. Back to Master Minded though and people should enjoy his final season at 2 miles, next season he will be Denman’s only serious Gold Cup rival.
In my opinion I would say Mark Johnston on the Flat, he does really well consistently every season and he doesn’t get the best of the arab owned horses sent to him. Over jumps Paul Nicholls is second to nobody, but of the rest i’m a big fan of Evan Williams.
I was taken with him but I can’t fall for him yet, after Pescatorio last year my burnt fingers are still healing, i’ll wait until his three year old campaign before I lay down my hard earned betting vouchers.
I can’t help but love this horse, as soon as Degas Art moved up the inner travelling well I knew Katchit would battle and win. I reckon he’s the next Champion Hurdler.
My five definites this year are-
Katchit- A. King- Can’t help thinking that this is the next Champion Hurdler, so slick at his flights and the heart of a lion.
Kauto Star- P. Nicholls- Had his knockers last season right up until Gold Cup day, special talent, three miles is his minimum now. Machine.
Denman- P. Nicholls- Likely to be kept apart from Kauto Star until the Gold Cup, only horse who can get near to Kauto at Cheltenham.
Voy Por Ustedes- A. King- I still feel this horse hasn’t been given the plaudits deserving of a crack two mile championship chaser. 2m King.
Cork All Star- J. Harrington- Top class bumper horse who is still an unknown quantity over hurdles but debut win was smooth as silk.
My dark horse is Ringaroses- H. Knight- 2 from 2 over hurdles since impressive bumper campaign. When I have an idea about the likely Cheltenham target for this one its worth an ante-post bet. Came across as a classy and progressive animal.

Mull of Dubai and Trick or Treat.
Was Sunstrike not that good then?
I would aim George at the B.C. Mile, only because I can’t fancy him on the dirt for the Classic.
I’m backing D. Healy 11/4 to score anytime in my usual useless Ã‚Â£5 acca.
K. Doyle 11/4
D. Bent 2/1
O. Martins 9/4
Any other suggestions?
Biggest cliche ever I know but ‘if he stays he wins’. Me personally i’m one of these who loves an unbeaten horse and I hope he takes the Guineas/Derby double at least, maybe the T.C.
I reckon Hilary has had the wind in her sails before she even declared interest in the Presidency, I think it would be foolish to write off Barack Obama at what is still an early stage in the election but I believe America will have its first female no.1 in 2008.
I believe as you put it ‘if you back a winner’ you should not lose money. You should always get back what you originally staked. I’ve heard a lot of Ladbrokes bad business recently. Good luck in future.
I like Silver Birch at a price but he will have to reproduce the form he was in when with Paul Nicholls. About 25/1 I believe. Good luck.
I backed Ned Kelly to small stakes and didn’t really get a run for my money, well not to worry there’s always tomorrow.;)
Heads OnThe Ground- Cross Country Chase.
