A Christmas Crack-er
Everyone loves a Long Walk around the leafy Heath at Ascot and over the past three years no one more so than the tough as old boots Reve De Sivola. Winner of the last three runnings of the race he was facing a solid line up this season.
This didnt seem to bother him too much as he turned the screw up from Swinley Bottom, getting most of his rivals in trouble as he swung in to face the judge. This time however there was a young stayer with the World at his feet in the form of the smooth travelling Thistlecrack hot on his heels.
Tom Scudamore had won his appeal and got off the Pipe trained Dynaste for the ride and over the second last he pushed the button and he simply blew the dogged Reve De Sivola away, careering up the run in to have everyone dreaming of how good he can be.
