underlined his brilliance as he made amends for his King George spill and earlier miscues at this track, in a role reversal from Kempton proving the beneficiary of Cue Card's fall just as the race was developing, still left with a top-class Djakadam to fend off and making doing so look all rather routine, no dramas at all save for a slight peck 4 out as his effort was starting, sent on by Cooper entering the straight and requiring little more than riding out, even with the runner-up seeings things out as strongly as he had 12 months earlier; he'll be the one to beat in all the top staying races again next season, but the small matter of defending his Aintree and Punchestown crowns awaits more immediately.

had to settle for second in this for the second successive season but would have won many a more ordinary renewal with either effort, running into a freak novice in Coneygree last year and the best stayer around this, closing the gap with the winner from their meeting at Punchestown but not by enough; soon travelling with his trademark purpose, with no sign at all of the jumping blemishes that had ended his 2 other visits to Cheltenham, he moved upsides between 4 out and 3 out and stuck to his task doggedly even after Don Cossack had put him away on the home turn, emerging with great credit; he's young enough to remain a fixture for another few years yet.

is probably only fifth or so in the current staying pecking order in any case but would have benefited from more positive tactics - and likely softer ground - on the day, not seeming so idle as often but caught out of his ground as the pace lifted, all too late by the time he properly got going, taking third at the last with the front pair long since away; he's still to be tried in headgear by current trainer, a prime candidate if ever there was one.

ran much as he had at Leopardstown 6 weeks earlier but his late surge from an unpromising position wasn't anything like so potent in this far stronger Grade 1, running as well as could be expected on form as he edged fourth on the line having still been well back 3 out; he's more than ready for long distances now.

seemed to excel himself in the face of a hopeless task but probably benefited from biding his time in a well-run race, even then not lasting out the longer trip, sweeping into fourth past the 2 front-runners between the last 2 only to fade on the run-in, edged out for a frame finish on the line.

failed to do himself justice in this for the second year in a row, unable to get into the same rhythm away from the mud with O'Faolains Boy taking him on in front, struggling to hold his place alongside the big guns well before that rival (left behind before 4 out) and ending up a place ahead only after that horse wilted in the straight.

shaped much better than the bare result in first-time cheekpieces but paid the price for the boldness of his tactics in a race he couldn't realistically win, jumping/travelling well and seeing off Smad Place in their private battle from the sixteenth only to tie up badly from 3 out, having been in front from the sixteenth to before 4 out.

was robbed of his chance of another fairytale win by a rare jumping lapse 3 out, only his second ever spill over fences, coming just as he'd moved upsides, still going powerfully at the time but with niggling stamina questions still to answer, odds against he'd have been able to withstand Don Cossack even if he'd got home, though second (rated as such) would have been a perfectly creditable finish; he's a different horse now to the one hammered by Don Cossack at Aintree last spring, but he's still likely to play second fiddle if the pair meet there again.

Non Runners: ROAD TO RICHES (IRE). Fences: 22.

Winning Owner: Gigginstown House Stud

Time: 6m 33.3s Closing Sectional: (3.84f): 57.40s (100.0%)

Only once this century - Bobs Worth's year in 2013 - has the Gold Cup attracted so few runners, but any numerical shortfall was more than compensated by a near-stellar line-up missing only long-since injured reigning champion Coneygree and the previous day's Ryanair winner Vautour, the current holders of the Hennessy, King George and Lexus all in attendance, not to mention last year's runner-up, providing context to another bona fide top-notch performance by Don Cossack, cementing his status as the best chaser in training; there was a contested pace - if not so searching as last year's - that lifted again from 5 out, though the main players had still to reveal their hands when Cue Card crashed out at the third last, robbing the British challenge of its only realistic contender, the unknown as to how he'd have fared the only slight on an otherwise fair and representative renewal.

DON COSSACK (GER) underlined his brilliance as he made amends for his King George spill and earlier miscues at this track, in a role reversal from Kempton proving the beneficiary of Cue Card's fall just as the race was developing, still left with a top-class Djakadam to fend off and making doing so look all rather routine, no dramas at all save for a slight peck 4 out as his effort was starting, sent on by Cooper entering the straight and requiring little more than riding out, even with the runner-up seeings things out as strongly as he had 12 months earlier; he'll be the one to beat in all the top staying races again next season, but the small matter of defending his Aintree and Punchestown crowns awaits more immediately.
