Well, Mullins is quoted post today's race on Racing UK site as follows:'We'll have to find a new target for him and I'd say he will go for the Lexus (Leopardstown Christmas Chase, December 28) at Christmas'I don't think it's called the Lexus anymore is it?Anyway, there were no trainer quotes from Mullins in the Pricewise piece at all - so no indication from him there that King George is the target. And I think Djakadam could have run in the King George in either of the last 2 years and has n't.But, yes, you'd think Segal would check with the RP columnist Mullins about the possibility of Djakadam turning up in the King George prior to tipping him and you can't take trainer's thoughts about next race targets as read - especially in the immediate aftermath of their previous run.No bet (yet)
So, at the risk of contradicting myself, I think the chances of Djakadam running here increased over the last couple of days.
We now know Sizing John won't run so they could achieve both their stated objective of avoiding him and their other stated objective of keeping their 'big guns' apart given Mullins suggested yesterday Yorkhill will run in the race formerly known as the Lexus.
Still too much guesswork though...
