However, I still think that if he captures our horse while leaving his elephant on d3, it is futile for us to try to save our rabbit with e->c4 the next move.  After the horse trade our extra rabbit will be worth only the time it takes to capture it.  

 
So take the horse and then left-wing counter-attack, to let C&G think whether to take our R (4 moves...) or perhaps to defend elsewhere? It sounds OK for me. Let's trap this horse.

OK, I've looked and come to the same conclusion as everyone else.  Go ahead and kill the horse.
 
[EDIT: ps. I don't think he will drag through the trap, I think his elephant will stay on c4]

I too looked at it once again. Horse capture is better after all.

Aren't we the cautious mob.  I see enough support to kill the horse now.  DOGFOOD!
