  • ...... Look what I started some great debate and I can see others are as passionate about this as I am.

    One thing I'd like add. Everyone is fond of Min (some more than others) but do we truly believe he's the best horse over intermediate trip?

    I'd strongly be on the side of a peak Altior over that distance, and would even take ABP over that distance too.

    He's only a 'champion' because the best horses don't run over that distance.

            “If he had completed the race at Newbury and gone and won, he’d be a very laudable favourite". Is there a different Gold Cup that Kim is thinking about?

            • Sounds like Thomas Darby will skip Cheltenham and Itchy Feet is going back over hurdles.

                    At 25/1 NRNB, that's appealing. Very appealing.

                    He deserves to be shorter than that. Hurdles rating down at 142, get him in a Pertemps qualifier

                      Very wise as he's certainly got no chance of winning a race at The Cheltenham Festival.

                        "Certainly got no chance"?

                        Come on now, he was 2nd in the Supreme wasn't he, so he deserves to be given credit for at least 'a tiny chance' in a handicap hurdle?



                        If he doesn't get entered, then he's got "certainly no chance"

                            The right decision.

                            • If I had a horse with Olly Murphy, he'd be outside my Office.
                              And likely have an empty stable to fill.
                              Underperforming.

                                Burst onto scene a bit but had big money backers early didn’t he, stalled a bit since the supreme 2/3.
