    Default Might Bite

    What an absolutely gorgeous horse. Scope to burn and just wow.
    Riding a horse like him round a track like Sandown must pretty well be as good as it gets.
    We are in for a gallop, away, away,
    I told them my beauty could fly...

    I expect there's a nice sign on his stable door.

    For anyone who didnt see it, I must admit he was very impressive, I thought the commentator was a bit churlish about it, I dont know what more the horse could have done.

    I agree, DG. Well done putting the video up. you can only beat what is in front of you, and he did that without breaking sweat. He is a stunning horse.

    He's absolutely gorgeous and quite quirky with it which makes me love him even more. NH always has some handsome horses and after the retirement of Sprinter Sacre it is great to Might Bite back out again with his own swagger.What a start tot he season!

    Oh thank you Dobiegirl for putting that link up. I was annoyed I couldn’t find it to watch.
    That was very satisfactory , I thought the commentary was fine, I like Richard Hoiles, he was only trying to make the race sound more exciting saying MB hadn’t shaken off the competition. As soon as NdB said go, he sauntered ahead. Perfect!

    Very exuberant at times but easily distracted . He would have to stay on his feet. He is certainly not anything like SS or ever will be. If there had been more runners at Sandown he would have struggled.

    Sandown in November is not really the place where you want to put in your season's best performance but he did what he had to. A tidy job, beat what lined up against him, hardly broke sweat. He was cruising in the Kauto Star Chase when he fell at the final fence last season, if he keeps his mind on the job and his feet where they should be in the King George I think he will be a serious contender.

    I've just watched that again and am more than ever convinced it was jockey error. Contrast with how the jockey rode the last fence at Cheltenham. I'd be more concerned with what happened AFTER the last fence at Cheltenham in terms of a GC tilt. Apparently it's not the first time he's done that at the course.
    I do wish him well though. He's an exciting horse to watch.
