    Lol. I hope so myself, having hammered him at 10s for Gold Cup. Be nothing within 10 lengths of him coming to the last on boxing day.

    So do you fancy Disko for the John Durkin on Sunday? 11/4 a price that interests you?

    I'll base it on how Sizing John looks in the ring. If he is more Jo Brand than Kate Moss, i'll look elsewhere

    Given the opposition, i Think Disko is plenty short at 11/4

    Still not seen the race, or If I have I can't remember due to the many shandys I drank last boxing day.

    No amount of shandy would make you forget his performance even if ending up on the deck.

    Just listening to RP podcast David Jennings said he and Tom Segal believe from WPM interviews/reports that Djak might have a go at this years renewal and what a great price 16/1.. even if thats true its just 2 weeks away, very unlikely he'll travel for that... but even if he does the 12/1 is not much value given Fox Norton who could also be re-routed, BDM and MB would all finish in front of him.

    I’ll be very surprised if either Fox Norton or Djakadam turn up at Kempton, on the back of their runs this weekend. The latter in particular looked to have had a hard race today.

    Agreed on both.

    Disko the most likely tourist and even he prob won't.

    If he doesn't, the next time Might Bite runs into a good horse, he'll be chasing the 2 Irish hosses up Cheltenham hill

    Between those 2 and BDM who the minute Might Bite gets near him he will toss the toys, dummy and all out the pram the race has the makings of a walkover

    Unless Might Bite decides to attack a spectator or kick Nicky Henderson in the ass in the parade ring I don't expect many fireworks.

    I know what I would be doing if possible if I were that irish fella with the hat

    Mullins suggesting that Djakadam will more than likely go for the old Lexus Chase over Christmas, rather than the King George.

    Usual caveats apply.

    Have to disagree with that, Tanlic.

    His record right-handed is very good, and whilst he doesn't stay 3m2f at Cheltenham, he would almost certainly be fine at 3m round Kempton. I've never been a huge fan, but yesterday's race doesn't make him a bad horse, and - if you forgive him yesterday's race - he would not look out of place in the King George one bit, imo.
