    what a fantastic race, wasnt it nice to see horse being ridden "hands & heels" and not whipped down the straight **)**)

    Haha I like Craig Browns comment "I didnt push the button until the 300m and then hoped he had enough petrol left in the tank"

    In other words at the 300m I thought I was in deep sh** and would be getting my butt whipped by the boss using one of those new padded whips.

    ROFL

    Yay! I got third (Mourilyan)!
    Havent picked a place in the Cup since Makybe Diva (I picked her ALL THREE times)
    I can never seem to pick the right horse in the big races but when Im sitting at home watching some small race on Emirates Stakes Day, I pick the winner 3 times!
