I'm comparing BD with other CH winners on info and without any prejudice. I had a bigger bet on BD than Altior in the Supreme but he was outpaced when Altior and Min quickened 2 out. Also, BD just managed to beat Petit Mouchoir in the following race again over 2m race but was impressive when beating My Tent Or Yours in the Aintree Hurdle.As I've said previously my money will be on Yorkhill (even him) or Min should either turn up.
Utter bowlarks, budd's already pointed out that BD recorded exactly the same time as Faugheen and you've completely ignored that info - BD beat MTOY last year exactly the same distance as Annie Power did (with the aid of her mare's allowance) the year before - there is little or no evidence to suggest MTOY regressed between the two renewals.
Your prejudice is clearly that you have n't forgiven him for being beaten in the Supreme two years ago with no consideration given to the fact that:
a) the two who beat him are both pretty darn good or
b) he might, just might, have improved significantly since then.
I've moved your post from 'laughable' to 'borderline criminal' in the appropriate corner of my mind... (with a duplicate copy in 'wind up')

Let's hope Douvan gets to the festival, setting aside what "actually" happens in the race for a moment, the build up would get that much needed shot in the arm wouldn't it?
Aesthetically...in horse racing? I've always thought that can only be done by its jockey eg winning cosily and cheekingly.
