King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes

Now we move onto Saturdays BIG race the

King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes 

...So many questions to ask and answer.......TELESCOPE a horse that made more promises than Neil Kinnock and delivered even less...however he ran to something like what the hyperbole has suggested he is capable off and i think after that rout this is the reason you can get 3.75 + on a horse proven at the top....or is he..well not really , he cant stay 1m4f and has failed a few times when the top tier has had a go and i think this can win but is worth taking on....
TAGHROODA  Won the Oaks lto in a very convincing manner and is well up to routing these if she can run to the same level ( only o.75sec behind the time Australia Won the Derby in ) but she will have to well not improve to win but show she is what she is and run to a consistent level and if she does its game over...Trading Leather is worth a couple of spondulies at 16/1 as cover to your stake and MAGICIAN is a worthy adversary to have in a dutch however i feel if you are gonna take this Fav on then you may as well just stick with an outright win bet on what you think is the best option and for me its Taghrooda but i must say this is one of the strongest renewals in recent years with many coming into this..but all things being equal and assuming Taghrooda is tip top and ready to run to the same level as her Oaks win then i see only one winner.....not clear cut by any means and not a mortgage jobby but worth a decent Saturday punt with a pint in Hand........WIN BET on Taghrooda ( if Max bet is 10 Points then this would be a 7 ).....

RESULT = 1ST @ 4.60 BoooooM ;-))
