    great race - was watching right near the line. Minella stepped on the last - the front two were emptying. Thought Champ was jumping better today and looked ominous a couple of mistakes down the back but he gave him a great ride. The form of this might work out quite well as bottom of the hill stamina and guts comes into play.

    Best horse won. Everything went right for the front 2. Not sure the pace was crazy as pretty much everything was in it with 3/4 fences to go. MI and Allaho stole lengths at the bend. Couple of bad jumps at the last.

    Champ at one point had both nostrils up BODs rectum. On the whole jumped pretty well but slow at others. Had to move out wide to get a clear run. Lost lengths round the bend. Absolutely bolted up the hill and if anything, you'd say the 2 furlongs longer in the Gold Cup would suit Champ more.

    If you look at the chases so far, there's been a bias for those at the front.

    Politologue won from the front.
    Easysland always in the top 3.
    Put the kettle on and FD always up front.
    1st, 2nd and 4th in the Ultima always near the front.
    Imperial Aura always near the front.
    LDM led the whole way and finished 2nd in the NH chase.

    You could upgrade Champ based on that.

    At this point, all I can do is wish you luck with your bet.

    I hope both horses get round and we can see a clear result either way.
    Yeeeeeehaaaaaa Champ get up

    I said in running at the track they’d gone too fast. The first half lap was far too quick for a song ground RSA and it showed. Champs outstayed them.

    Have rewatched the finish a couple of times.

    Allaho I would say won’t stay the GC distance, my initial thoughts were Indo was out in his feet but when Chanp goes past him h me quickens up for the final 4-5 strides, I wonder if he started getting lonely as he drifted to the center of the course?

    Still an unbelievable performance from Champ to finish like that
