Racing: Majadou poised to make it four for Pipe
The former top jump jockey Steve Smith Eccles analyses today's Murphy's Gold Cup
Saturday 13 November 1999
Majadou: Only five but a course-and-distance winner in the Mildmay of Flete Chase at the Festival in March. Will take all the beating.
Addington Boy: This veteran usually races at longer trips and could be found out by the likely blistering pace.
Tresor De Mai: An improving sort who posted a good effort behind Flagship Uberalles on his seasonal debut, and has each-way claims.
Northern Starlight: Another course-and-distance winner who may be the least fancied of Martin Pipe's runners.
Stormy Passage: Runs best when fresh but has a tendency to break blood vessels.
The Outback Way: Made a winning reappearance on this track and should give a good account of himself, even though he is upped in class.
Mister Morose: Lightly raced over fences and looks sure to be outpaced.
Tremallt: Likes to make the running and jumps soundly. He has a win under his girth already this season but may struggle to get home in this higher grade.
Sounds Like Fun: Always runs a game race but may be outclassed.
Inn At The Top: Out of his depth.
Pennybridge: Made winning reappearance at Wetherby and has each-way claims.
Forestal: Holds little appeal.
Dr Bones: I will see a doctor if this one wins.
Conclusion: Martin Pipe, the champion trainer, has won this race with Beau Ranger, Challenger Du Luc and Cyfor Malta and can add to that remarkable record with MAJADOU. Call Equiname is unproven at the trip, so offers little value, while Tresor De Mai could run a big race at rewarding odds.
