Listen: Cyrname upsets the odds with landmark victory over Altior
"Of amazing we had bought a spectacle we were treated to surname versus the highest rated a horse and training against arguably the best. Racehorse in training Nichols versus Henderson. was always going to be blood in the water or or something had to give thankfully you both committed you both for us and we ended up with a thrilling thrilling race. In my opinion it was on soft ground surname with his first win on his seasonal debut. Paul was was speaking to nick it yesterday. But this and the thing that really caught my eye or caught my attention was the interview. He gave Lou carvey directly after the race. He was very very emotional. He described it along the lines of Kado stars. Fifth bet fair chase when they weren't entirely sure or the team had had injury issues with them and it could have been his farewell and there were two things that stood out to me about that one the importance of this horse us to comparing him to the greatest source I've ever seen over jumps particularly as as a stare and three how. How exciting reading this? This horse is so number of questions for you. How did you manage to get to ask for the post race celebrations? What what was your impression Russian of the performance and how pleased where you? And why is he as Paul. Nicholson said a different horse. This season question one. No I didn't get Oscar on the way back from Haydock. The reason he won I this year is because like but before now he he is not been the horse he is now he was as a gopher again and again but he was as you all know. He was competing wildwood beforehand. He's called nine an awful lot so I don't think any of his forearm up until so middle. Last season was really relevant to Saturday. A touch does he have. I would imagine obstinately my sis on what is I say when in Maine it was great. Because you know we're using it for prep for the King George is GonNa improve twenty percents of that. Nicky have a bit of that Nicky Henderson upbringing. You in Kev. Just you've written about this for your article authorises which I have indeed read. I tell a lie I I had dictated to me but still i. I know what you've written took brief lazy. I was multitasking. As multitasking. Thanks so just was was suitable but you wrote about lost in translation and switched to surname as always you wrote very eloquently about it This was fantastic clash in an era where these champion horses tend to avoid each other until it comes to the big occasion. This this was terrific. You made the point about the betting which is something that I was talking about as well. The dogs in the street were talking about how what else you're always working. I know that he was after having a wind operation over the summer but so it surname Henderson seemed super confidence that betting was outrageous -rageous threes on l.. T. Org off. But that's not how the script came out. What did you make of what was essentially a match race and thrilling race? Well just to deal with their betting I because this was a story in itself Look at the more race. And you're watching the more markets you watch you. You come to realize that especially in the last decade in particular debating in the last ten minutes before race is very much more paying heed to and big strong late moves tend to be an exceptional guy aid to what's going to happen. What's expected to happen? Of course it doesn't always always work out but this was just a remarkable betting market like I made a nap. The five to four. I talked he was he. He was a very fair price at that. I taught at that price. There was an edge in backing him and he's drifted out to three to one on on the exchanges. You know close to the off and as they were jumping off like it was just a sense of inevitability about that someone somewhere a very big player or a number of big players knew something be at a very very strong positive for your or a negative for surname Someone thought they knew something. Betting just moved to a remarkable extent. But look if you didn't know anything about that and he just watched the race. You know panda lags. The as one might have hoped it. Would you know the the official handicapper got thank. You agree for having certain pound ahead about your. But that's how it panned. Douse the big difference for me. In terms of the prince between the two on today well it was mostly jumping. I don't wanting salmon was an issue for out your his jumping compared to surnames. Just let him down and we didn't see anything madly out of character for. How's your he can give them an NBA too much air? He can be slightly slow through the air and we've seen an in law recent times especially that he can go of it left When he's going around the right track and he did all of those things at various times whereas surname was just Bang Bang Little Bit Long I think it was is the fourth and the sixth when really really mattered he absolutely ping and any chance. That out your head of grinding out a victory as he so often hasn't his career he just finds a way late on especially. It's been a feature about your strong his lateness races. But those two jobs koplowitz surnames obvious. top-class ability just made us and Unachievable task for Audi or and so look fabulous. horserace really really enjoyed US delighted for all concerned as an ecclesiastic. Harry Course Look as enjoyable enjoyable. There's this was Nike say as improbable as it was to get a clash of this of this magnitude in the third week of November You know it does give us tend to look forward to at the manage. It seems like we have a rematch. Look forward to and which will be really interesting at South but You know for all answered some questions. Sion's it asks some new ones as well so this I it was just fabulous really enjoyed us and I'm really looking forward to seeing it wrong back over a slightly eighty different set of circumstances and see what"
