I"m assuming these are your "value" picks, or to you believe it"s not actually a two horse race ?

Quel Esprit is a non runner now....
Synchronised in the Lexus absolutely pulverised the field, Rubi Light hasn"t exactly boosted the form after his run in the RSA yesterday but as long as Synchronised"s jumping holds up [he does like to jink mid air] then there is no doubting imo that come the hill his stamina could swing it for him...
Burton Port has to be in the mix, he beat Long Run by a s/h in the RSA, injury hit after a fair run in the HGC at Newbury then after a lengthy absence on his comeback he only loses narrowly to Long Run!!!  He could bounce today but if he doesn"t he is the only other viable contender to the front 2 in the betting to actually have a chance of winning today"s Gold Cup imho of course.. :)
Kauto has to be in the mix of course but at 12 years old its a big ask but Long Run hasn"t looked in the same form this year as he was when leading up to this last year plus with quicker conditions today his jumping might find him out today..
An intriguing open 4 way contest for the winners spot is my call Leigh, should be i hope a great race to watch, shame Weapon"s Amnesty isn"t back from injury yet because he"d definitely lower Long Run"s colours :)

Such a great run from Brindisi Breeze - which I failed to back - spew!
