  1. Tatts HIT Lot 1153A English King , like SD by Camelot , 5th/ 16 in Derby this year , like AVD winner of a Lingfield Derby Trial , has only ran 6 times , mares produce by Montjou group 3 winner over 15 furlongs . Rated 111 , form with Kameko and Mogul , what sort of price he fetching in a few days on open market . He won't be cheap .
  2. Let's not forget how Kris Lees really improved Mugatoo and he's had him for decent length time , he has gone from 6k midweek handicaps at Doncaster to WFA Championship performer . That's some serious improvement from 81 rated .
  3. For a racetrack set up by the Roman's it's remarkably round old Chester as opposed the to roads they built . Magic Wand got a win there in Oaks trial . Those May meeting trials there sometimes light on numbers but produce some decent horses , listed Dee Stakes over 10 furlongs has produced 2 Derby winners in last 20 years , the group 3 12 furlong Vase 1 . Contributor placed in the Dee Stakes at one point .
  4. Tatts Cup Curragh few months ago , positions of SD and Armoury , both went out as outsiders , SD put a just over a couple of lengths on Armoury giving 9lbs wfa , yesterday was it 4bs or close to wfa ? And it's a length an quarter , so how much improvement has Maher squeezed out of SD ? . Interesting race to watch as both need oxygen tanks after Magical busted them to bits , who in turn has been busted up a few times by Enable .
  5. Very average after , good on him selecting the horse but being charitable to Maher he looked like he was cut off early so let's hope he said something . Waller straight away thanked previous trainer when Shared Ambition bolted up on Cup day last year . Basically said he just saddled the horse . Doubt the big boys care it's just a sack full of money with likely more heading their way for the ones they want to move on .
  6. In the two weeks he has had the horse by his own words , you believe he has improved him on what Ballydoyle could get out of him all year , he has been looked after at Newmarket for a while by David Eustace father I know but he has never improved Sir Dragonet, the ground came right for a decent grp 3 listed class horse . Armoury went out at 66 to 1 last time at Leopardstown , NumerIan almost done him giving him 8 lbs and beat the shit out of Sir Dragonet when they met . NumerIan will end up hurdling . WFA over 2000 Australian racing weak , Northern scribes like Chapman are laping it up , some asking what price Armoury for Triumph Hurdle in March . The 2019 Derby has suddenly looked excellent now AVD and SD have arrived in OZ , it looked pretty shabby formwise in Europe in the main , field done not a lot of note , Prix Foy aside . AVD couldn't win a Hardwicke and Sir Dragonet a Wolverton . Australian sprinters best in world IMHO, middle distance / stayers poor .
  7. He got round Chester last year closest to the Valley I suppose There's a horse going tonight called Numarian at Leopardstown in listed race , got beaten in handicap last time but suddenly he's got a decent formline . Beat Sir Dragonet almost 3 lengths at Naas in March and pushed Armoury close couple starts back , then couldn't pick his feet up. He's up against it tonight with nearly 10 stone .
  8. Great result for Coolmore , top sales pitch on how good the ones they willing to sell are therefore ramping up the prices , they also get to take home a horse who's placed in a top race with plenty of life left in him for next year in Europe . Homesman earlier in card another out of their yard a few years back, be plenty more money from OZ tipping into their bank accounts now .
  9. They could have put those two in horsefloats and drove them round track , they still not beating the first two from up North . Placed Listed Royal Ascot form good enough this year , let alone a group race up there.
  10. Te Rapa R5 1, 5, 7, 9 Te Rapa R7 1, 2, 4, 12 Riccarton R7 1, 2, 7, 9 Randwick R7 4, 6, 7, 8 MV R3 1, 2, 5, 7 R4 1, 2, 4, 6 R5 2, 3, 5, 10 R6 1, 2, 3, 6 R7 2, 5, 6, 8 R8 2, 4, 7, 10 R9 6, 7, 11, 12 Thanks to organisers.
  11. Yes , forgot Taj Mahal , won a bit off him over the years in Australia. Won few grp 2s there.At stud now , he was up for it in paddock at Valley one night so I am guessing he's doing well .
  12. Criterion St Cloud produces good horses , Hartnell and Cloth of Stars a couple placed in it last 10 years amoung others but 2016 must be best juvenile group 1 in many many years . Walgeist Arc winner Best Solution Caulfield Cup winner Capri Irish Derby Doncaster St Leger winner Wings of Eagles Epsom Derby winner Rekindling ran last , Melbourne Cup winner , Some other also rans like D'Bai a solid Listed/ GRP 3 Horse still rattling round, Even Frankuus still rattling around Dundalk last week.
  13. Derby win was similar kind of ride , got back of midfield , bustled a bit before and on turn to get going then hit overdrive . Had room to switch and go inside at Epsom in straight so could keep momentum going . The French race was slow so he had to be on the lead. I still reckon if Bowman had hard ridden for a spot early he would have set AVD alight and be hard to turn off the gas once it's running hard .
