AK: Vibes about Denman weren’t good both before the race and during it. Sparks missing then and still missing. Katchit affected by Festival win too. Maybe next year he’ll be back. News to me but he thinks vets had to resynch heart more than once by injecting quinine a poison…interesting stuff! Huge fan of KS. Fascinating Gold Cup. Looking forward to seeing class act Kauto. Only slight doubt is the regaining crown stat. Neptune probably placed. Likes Exotic Dancer.
MW: Denman vibes bad. Against him. MW had a horse with same condition that never recovered. KS a good price. Neptune flattered last year but not in same league. MdB no chance. AFO – Charlie Mann trains so no chance!
DN: Denman awful in paddock and race. Did well to finish. Vibes still bad. Nothing positive. Price tells own story. Likes Neptune although not strongly. Looking for a shock. Doesn’t like Exotic but can’t find the winner.
DH: Denman friendless in market. Thrived since Kempton though. Likes KS. Punters nibbling at Neptune. MdB most improved horse. Clutching at straws other than these.
JM: Likes Neptune and Exotic Dancer.
PB: Likes KS. Outsider he likes is Miko De B at a big price.
John Hales – Neptune is well. All systems go and wants to know where Neptune critics will be on Friday night!
Question from audience….will Can’t Buy Time win in 4 miler.
DN: Vibes not good.
AK: Not a clue!
