    Be fair to both; Cracksman optimum trip is 10f and Enable 12f.
    Chances are over their trips one would beat the other but over 1 mile 3 furlongs it would be difficult to separate them.

    And Cracksman really needed soft ground to show his best form.

    Staying in training and going for a 3rd Arc which would make her the only triple winner in history.

    He might be a pain in the ass to some but there's no better jockey for the big occasion having won the race a record 6 times soon to be 7

    Your cat is a better judge than you.
    The guy has a 22% strike rate over the last 5 years and the best strike rate of 24% this past season.

    If he didn't have Gosden he wouldn't have a career now. Stirke rate is good 'cos of how few he rides these days, and not all form sites agree with that 24% either. 99% of jockeys would win on the likes of Enable and Stradivarius. Like Gosden said, 'you wouldn't find him at Windsor on a wet Monday'. You carry on admiring him as you want. Everyone's entitled to their opinion based on their knowledge of someone. And that includes my dead cat.

    He's not much good when you need one ridden out for a place when he has a "more important" ride later in the card.
