    Presenting Percy still has 4 legs I guess. Trainer never comments with the media

    Wonder how many of these 3m horses will have their season opener at Leop xmas

    Any small possibility of Henderson sending Altior to the King George quashed by him being quoted as saying heíd genuinely rather run him in the Kings Stand than send him to Kempton.

    And he'd probably win the Kings Stand too...

    Aside from staying concerns, I don't think Poiltilogue will place in the King George

    Why?

    Surely he must have a good chance if getting home.

    His following have all reserved somewhere in the enclosure as well. Suggests to me he's more than likely running

    Didn't think he would run. They may have an unusual prep in mind for him

    Sizing John is set for a workout at the Curragh ahead of returning to action at Leopardstown for the first time in a year.

    Presenting Percy may also be supplemented for Kempton

    You can understand why they are thinking King George after the way Biter bit the dust.

    If he failed to come back it might turn out to be a cake walk for them

    Biter was so disappointing I was even thinking my pethate Bristol De Mai might not be a one hit wonder and could carry his form forward to Kempton

    Wouldn't fancy Percy if this was his first run of season, same with Waiting Patiently.

    BDM's chance in any race is dependant on his ability to get into a jumping rhythm. Don't think Kempton suits him.

    Nicky confirming again Altior wont go King George...It's not that he hasn't sent good 2 milers before Remittance Man finished 3rd to the fellow Travado (Fell) and Tiutchev nearly won it

    I suppose Sprinter and Altior were/are just too good at the min trip to be upsetting the applecart and that may have more to do with it than them thinking Might Bite is certain to come bouncing back............will be interesting to find out

    Remittance Man beaten by The Fellow after what amounted to no more than an exercise gallop in his prep (a match). Still wonder if he might have gotten home, if he’d had a sterner test beforehand.

    Stat of the day:
    Since it became a G1, no horse has won the Leopardstown Christmas Chase (Lexus/Savills) on seasonal debut. Has no bearing on the Gold Cup itself but puts the difficulties facing the likes of Presenting Percy and Al Boum Photo at Leopardstown in perspective.
    The same stat goes for at least the last 11 runnings of the King George.
    The older I get the better I was.
