I don't want to get misty-eyed here, but I've just heard that Jair du Cochet, the only horse with a realistic chance of beating Best Mate in the Gold Cup next week, broke his leg in training this morning and has had to be put down. Speaking as someone who disrupted a family Christmas by insisting on stopping proceedings just so that I could watch Jair du Cochet in the King George on Boxing Day afternoon, I'm actually quite sad about this.
