What a dud cup. Eight entries into the final; Really TK’ers, are there no other 4yo’s who can add to the mix? In defence to the dodgers, I guess facing Relaunch is a haunting thought. Is Relaunch to become the Black Caviar of the TK world?

Lets be honest, beating Relaunch is extremely unlikely to happen. There is only one horse I see with a chance and that is Bristol Turks runner Voodoo Child. Voodoo Child has been very close to Relaunch in the past but as yet has not been able to bridge the gap. Can he do it this time?
