No final decision has been made but if it was a sentimental decision you could not help thinking it would be Thefixer. Not that it would need to be a sentimental decision. He just might be the best chance.

Eight wins from 14 starts is not to be sneezed at in any company. And in his first start since mid-September you would expect even more improvement from this run his last before the Cup.

Instead he gave them all a chance to beat him and held them at bay. Rated well four back on the outer by Natalie, Thefixer came into the race quickly went clear and fought off all challenges the most impressive of who was Dream About Me who had Tim and Paul and Mary Kenny all smiles with her super effort.

Natalie’s affection for Thefixer is never hidden.

“Just about the perfect racehorse. Tries so hard has the manners and the pace to get where you want him to be and just does everything you ask of him” she said

“I mean he hadn’t raced for so long compared to most here and you would hardly know”

Mark was not so happy about Ultimate Machete

“A pass mark, just. He will have to be sharper to win the Cup I was hoping for better really”
