King George

I’ve known I’m backing Cue Card in this since last year and to say I’m raging that I didn’t put up the 10/1 earlier this week is an understatement. Its turned him from a max bet to a standard 2 pt bet, and its pure laziness on my part. I don’t subscribe to the general consensus that he won’t stay or didn’t stay last year. He looked to have stopped before the second last for some reason and then stayed on well enough after that. He is clear 2nd Favorite here in my mind and I have him as a 7/2 shot, behind the very sold looking favorite.  Champagne Fever has generally been disappointing outside of the Cheltenham festival and I just don’t know how he can be as short as he is here, that isn’t to say he won’t win but there isn’t a lot of evidence to put him in this class.
