DJ: Disappointed about Diamond Harry not running.
PN: Paul to run 4 with Daryl riding What A Friend. Needs decent ground. Ground is going Kauto’s way. Not sure where he is with Denman.
MF: Amateur jockey on Long Run not disadvantage as Sam W-J knows him. Good ground might be a concern for Long Run but looks a million dollars at the moment and has an outstanding chance.
TS: Difficult to weigh up Imperial Commander. He’ll win if he is in same form as last year. Doesn’t fancy anything in the race. Kauto and Denman age is problem. Worried about Long Run on the ground. Pandorama needs soft. Kempes will run alright but flat bred horse. (Tom is not letting us in on what his tip will be).
PN: What A Friend could finish in top 4. Hard to predict winner. Looking forward to race.
RW: If it’s good to soft thinks that Long Run will start favourite.
MF: If soft would ride Long Run. Right Kauto Star off at your peril.
Now onto a Q and A….
