My highlight was the Gold Cup (surprise!) & it was a choice between Denman or Kauto Star, I've been saying Denman would do it since around October/November so my money went on him, £5 stake for a £24 return. I was more than happy :o)
Denman is a tank of a horse, he made the race look easy & only started to tire over the last 3 fences, 1 mistake & he may not have been the Gold Cup winner of 2008. I was on the edge of my seat & shouting him home from 5 fences back, he won by 7 lengths & left the field trailing. 17 hands of pure power. And a dream machine for his jockey, Sam Thomas, it was his first festival winner in not just any race but the race.
