    • The climax to the British Flat season took place at Ascot on Saturday. The ground was Soft for the straight course but Soft to Heavy on the Round Course and they were taking plenty off the top on the round course suggesting it was deep ground. The card opened with the Stayers over 3200m and for all he has been the dominant force in the division in the past three or four seasons, this is a race STRADIVARIUS has only won once though his narrow defeat at the hands of KEW GARDENS last year was no disgrace. To be honest, I couldn’t fancy him after is coltish exploits at Longchamp before the Arc and he ran very flat here trailing home well behind the impressive winner TRUESHAN who rewarded late each way support from 16s to 11s. Hollie Doyle had the horse in mid-division but he was the only one who quickened in the straight and won by seven and a half lengths. In truth, he’s better known as a jumper and is thought a Champion Hurdle prospect, but he relished the winter-like ground and in these conditions he’s clearly very good and his flat record reads seven wins from eleven starts so he’s no mug. SEARCH FOR A SONG was held up out the back and came into the race well enough but she was no match for the winner albeit she ran down the early pacesetters to take second in the final 100m – a creditable effort. Both FUJAIRA PRINCE and MORANDO are solid performers at this level on their day and both ran decent races to finish third and fourth and as geldings we will doubtless see them back next year and while it’s possible the latter is on the downgrade, FUJAIRA PRINCE remains lightly raced and there could still be a serious race in him. The O’Brien challengers were well beaten – DAWN PATROL ran the best of them, and I could see him being a Cup horse as a 4-y-o, but the likes of BROOME and SOVEREIGN were well held. As for STRADIVARIUS, I’d retire him – he wants to be a stallion and while I understand the allure of a fourth Gold Cup win, I just think he’s lost the plot on the track. The Sprint over 1200m looked a seriously good race with the winners of the July Cup and the Haydock Sprint Trophy in the forms of DREAM OF DREAMS and OXTED facing the triple Foret winner in ONE MASTER and the unbeaten STARMAN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXhFy68YHnI   Another win for Hollie Doyle and that was a 203/1 double. I think the race was won at the start as GLEN SHIEL got a flyer and in a sport where decisions can rest on inches (or millimetres if you prefer), that precious advantage was decisive. I didn’t think however it would be possible to do this from the front and to be fair the outsider BRANDO was the last challenger and got so close. Both DREAM OF DREAMS and OXTED travelled strongly enough in the ground and while I thought OXTED ran a decent race, neither really got home. As might have been expected, the 1400m specialist ONE MASTER was enough to finish really well but as is so often the case it was a little too late for her and it seems likely she will end her career at the Breeders’ Cup Mile. ART POWER was fourth and ran well and I’m looking forward to seeing him as a 4-y-o. Neither STARMAN nor LOPE Y FERNANDEZ ever got involved. The winner had run second to DREAM OF DREAMS at Haydock but this was an improved effort and it may well be in a division which has had no star this year he will be vying with DREAM OF DREAMS next year. On then to the Fillies and Mares over 2400m and for a race which looked very trappy on paper, in the end very few got involved. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRxVZsKQc24 William Buick knew WONDERFUL TONIGHT, having won the Royallieu over 400m further, would see out the trip and he committed fully 600m down, but it was a decisive move and she was never in any real danger. I thought DAME MAILLOT did plenty in the race, but she ran on very bravely though that’s the last of her on a racecourse and she will be a valuable broodmare for the Oppenheimer family. PASSION got a lot closer to WONDERFUL TONIGHT here than she had at Longchamp and was staying on well at the end. As for MEDHDAAYIH, she did everything right in the prelims but I just wonder if Dettori got too far back – he did plenty to bring her into the race starting her run when Buick kicked on the winner and she moved up with some menace 300m down but the run flattened and it may be 2400m on the ground was too far. Not much show from the likes of EVEN SO and FRANKLY DARLING while ANTONIA DE VEGA led but was readily headed and faded in the straight. The winner is a classy filly and it’ll be interesting to see if she comes back next season as she could be a serious contender in a staying division which will, I suspect, be in some degree of transition. All her best form has been on slow ground and the Vermeille showed she probably doesn’t have the pace to be a Group 1 contender at 2400m but an additional 800m and some wet ground would be a very different story. The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes is the mile championship race. PALACE PIER came in to this unbeaten having won the St James’s Palace and the Marois. He faced THE REVENANT who had returned from a long break after running second in the 2019 version of the race to win the Daniel Wildenstein and if this was a plot then full credit to trainer Francois Graffard as it worked out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdfnVapAVyc   It was a curious race and if you wanted a French-run race in England that was it – no early gallop and basically a 400m sprint. Pierre-Charles Boudot rides these all day and had THE REVENANT close to the pace while Frankie Dettori was, I thought, a long way out of his ground on PALACE PIER and had to do a lot to get to the front which he did. In the final 200m, Dettori was looking down as if there was something amiss and it turned out PALACE PIER had lost a shoe and racing on three “wheels” in that ground wouldn’t have been easy. ROSEMAN ran a screamer in second as an unconsidered outsider for all he had run fourth in the Queen Anne over course and distance in June. Jockey Andrea Atzeni was up the front throughout which was the place to be. Another outsider who out-ran his odds was SIR BUSKER who might have finished third had he kept straight. In truth, very few got into this and I suspect the combination of the slow ground and the slow early pace didn’t help a number such as CIRCUS MAXIMUS and NAZEEF who would prefer better ground and a more traditional English style race. THE REVENANT is a gelding and a 5-y-o and that rules him out of several French Group 1 races so perhaps connections might be tempted to come over to the UK more, but he clearly prefers the mud and his record of nine wins from twelve races tells you how well campaigned he has been. ROSEMAN might be top of the older mile division after this and perhaps another tilt at the Queen Anne will be on the cards – as for PALACE PIER, who knows? He remains a very good horse on decent ground and if they keep him in training as a 4-y-o he’s going to be a real benchmark for next year’s classic performers to aim at in the Sussex and other races. On then to the big race of the afternoon, the Champion Stakes over 2000m which at £425,325 was worth about a ninth of the Everest which says a lot about the British and Australian racing scenes currently. MAGICAL was bidding to follow up her win in this last year but faced strong opposition from Jockey Club winner MISHRIFF, Prince of Wales winner LORD NORTH and dual Australian Group 1 winner and second in this last year, ADDEYBB. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sppUEhMGXTU   Just like THE REVENANT in the previous race, it was a case of second to first for ADDEYBB and again you sense this was a plan which worked. He had been second (well beaten in all honesty) to LORD NORTH in the Prince of Wales and had enjoyed a pipe opener at Ayr in September in much lower grade but this was another race won and lost early. I suspect the plan had been for Derby winner SERPENTINE to jump and run but he fluffed the start, and this gave jockey Tom Marquand on ADDEYBB a chance to come over form the outside draw and get a position. SKALLETI was always close to the pace and ran a blinder in second and the run with SOTTSASS at Deauville now looks some of the strongest form in Europe this season. I never thought Ryan Moore looked comfortable on MAGICAL and it speaks volumes for her class she was able to plug on and grab third. I did wonder if the early pace problems put her on the back foot but she was well held and it may just be we’ve seen the best of her – she’s a 6-y-o like Enable and if connections think she’s done enough no one will object and she will be a huge addition to the Coolmore broodmare roster. SERPENTINE redeemed his reputation a little with this effort though if I’m being honest the Derby win still looks a fluke and with the Jockey Club winner in fifth, it’s fair to say the 3-y-o have been put in their place by the older horses throughout the autumn and with the exception of LOVE, it’s probably fair comment the classic generation of 2020 has been average. LORD NORTH and JAPAN never got involved. ADDEYBB started his rise winning the Lincoln at Doncaster three seasons ago and his exploits in Australia have been well documented and I suppose an autumn campaign Down Under might be on the agenda once again. SKALLETI is also a gelding and perhaps like CIRRUS DES AIGLES back in the day, he’ll be back next year for another try as he can’t run in several French Group 1 races including the Arc. That’s basically the British season done though we have a final Group 1 at Doncaster this weekend of which more elsewhere.
    • Geelong Race 7.                                             2,4,7,9.                                                            Thanks
    • He was beaten 20 lengths in a match race on bottomless ground. He's better judged on his third to VICTOR LUDORUM in the Jean-Luc Lagardere last year and on his most recent effort when third to MAGICAL in the Irish Champion finishing in front of subsequent Arc winner SOTTSASS. I'm not convinced - quick ground and Australia might be the making of him. I'd prefer him to SIR DRAGONET who looks a bit of a dodgepot as we say up here. ASPETAR is rated 116 and if that's good enough to win a Cox Plate, the Aussies and Kiwis are in a world of trouble. ASPETAR won a Group 2 at York last time but had to go to Germany to find a Group 1. MAGIC WAND has a huge chance if you forgive her last effort which was dismal. The earlier Eclipse fourth was decent and the Nassau fifth okay. She was fourth in the Cox Plate last year and beat a certain MELODY BELLE in the MacKinnon so if she brings her best form doesn't she win the Cox Plate or go very close?
    • Runner up in the Irish Derby at a big price - posted in my Northern Hemisphere reports. There's lots of ifs, buts and maybes about this lot - it might be a vintage renewal but we won't know that for a while. There's the suspicion the better Ballydoyle runners will be at Epsom next weekend. SANTIAGO is the obvious choice if they go hard - he's a relentless galloper but give me someone else's tenner and I'd have a speculative punt on TIGER MOTH at 14s. He ran really well nearly catching SANTIAGO. He then had a break and romped home by four lengths in a Group 3 at Leopardstown over 2400m. He's by Galileo (as you'd expect) out of a Mujadil mare but the three full sisters all raced around a mile so he's got more stamina but the 3200m has to be a question. I suppose he's fancied because as an NH 3-y-o he gets in well in the weights though not as well as Rewilding or Cross Counter. He's rated 113 up here so he's ready to take on Group 1 company but he's not had much racing and given Aidan O'Brien's record in the MC I'm wary of sticking any of my hard-earned (let alone YOUR hard-earned) on TIGER MOTH until we see the barrier draw.

    • Who is TIGER MOTH ? 
    • furthest back I have seen from his previous starts, but then maybe Who miscounted the laps ...    
    • World bank never stepped in while people were starving due to lockdowns 🤔 Bill gates boys are keen to roll out these vaccines...Northern Hemisphere heading into winter and the more virulent  seasonal flu is still at work outside the ‘Covid’ ,remember how the Human immune system is compromised when stressed 😑 One world government is closing in 
    • Geelong Race 7.           1,2,3,5.            Cheers and Thanks......
    • The Bookies have Grandslam at a similar quote to Shamus Award in 2013.🤔  Someones way off the mark here and i cant see it being the  Bookies or Maher and Eustace 🙄 
    • What's your point buddy , I could put up my one selection a race , because i only ever back one horse a race , against the sharks top pick , no problem , but what will that prove . It will prove i'm no tipster and neither is the shark , even if i beat him , it's not a very high bar to beat .  Everybody's point being , the shark selecting 4 every race available is a pointless exercise because his results don't stand up to the standard of being a tipster . And it's all about results . So climb off your high horse , but i'm sure you wont .
    • Sure, but the addition of a 3YO adds interest - as opposed to yet another European that no one has heard of.
    • A lot of people bagging the TAB's selector, yet no one willing to show they are a superior selector. LightsOut, Nomates, Mike28, ivanthegreat - give it a go. Post at a similar time and see how you do.
    • Shamus ran and placed in 8 Group and Listed races before the Cox Plate.....Grandslam has won a 2 year old race in Adelaide. No difference there then......🙄
