    Agreed. I thought it'd be much closer, maybe the injury scare after Ascot did have an impact on KS's prep, or they also said the ground was against him. All excuses though - Denman looked class.

    Credit to Nicholls for bringing the 3rd place home too for an unprecedented 1-2-3. (5/1 if you'd looked for that this morning on Sky Bet).

    The forcast paid 4.5 to 1 - so I'm sure the tricast would pay more.
    Denman was a true winner - knocked the stuffing out of Kauto.

    Will take a lot of beating next year - would like to see a rematch maybe in the king george

    sorry... to clarify, the 5/1 was on a Gold Cup special that Nicholls would bring the first 3 home. I'm sure the Tricast was better value, especially as the markets moved through the day.

    There's talk of Denman targetting the Gold Cup and National double in 2009... is that a wise move?

    On Denman. in the King george I would back Kauto flatter course shorter distance and speed at the end might tell
