The horse did you and the stable proud last night in the Cup.

I see the nutters are crowing conspiracy theories about MP's driving  as per usual but your classy enough as are most on here to ignore such rubbish.

Congratulations to turn it ups connections. looks a real NZ cup contender. Lets hope he has a trouble free NZ cup preparation.

I think the conspiracy theory you may be talking about was the enhance your calm drive. Personally I think he was caught by surprise,and any other driver would have got similar comments made about the drive.  Just because he's mark purdon,doesn't mean your a nutter if you think he made a mistake..

The Stewards report suggests otherwise as they were satisfied after talking to him that he gave the horse every chance.

ENHANCE YOUR CALM - Stewards spoke with driver M Purdon as to whether he could have displayed more vigour in the early stages of the run home to establish a bigger advantage over the trailing runners. Mr Purdon explained that his gelding had travelled well throughout however did not respond as anticipated when he released the deafeners near the 200 metres. He added it was the gelding's first attempt over 2600 metres and that combined with the track conditions may have contributed to its inability to quicken when asked for an effort.

Unlike his training partner Mark Purdon has never been an aggressive driver in terms of whip  or rein use which is to his credit and his record suggests he gets the best out of his charges. I suppose its ironic that winning driver  Bob Butt got a 5 day holiday  and $500 fine for excessive use

Its the same anti AS nutters who bag the likes of MP and NR  when they win or lose. In that respect I must congratulate those who currently post on here and to the owner for the civilized behaviour and respect that's shown by contributors and moderators alike to others posts.

I don't agree with what mr purdon has to say. Hes naturally just covering for himself..  I'm not saying he should have been fined,just his horse eased up more than he thought it would.

If you look at the video,tricky vic is 2 lengths behind enhance your calm at the 150m,1 length at the 50m,then 1 1/2 at the finish.  Lotaauscle is 2 lengths behind at the 150m,a neck at the 50m,then a nose at the finish. The most telling observation was enhance your calm then pulled clear,together with lotamuscle,of the field and continued to do so after the finish.  The video doesn't have favourites,it tells its own story.   Lotamuscle not only caught mr purdon by surprise,but also caught the horse by surprise.

Fair enough. I saw it differently and having ridden and driven a few i know how they can pull themselves up in bad going  but go again should another horse come along side.

But I would have to say though the P Nairn trained lotamuscle was just as impressive how good is he with the square gaiter brilliant I would say.

One of the best and has been for many years. Learnt off the best and usually gets the best to steer them. Wonder how many DJB drove for him that saluted

Actually I sorta kinda agree, WAPost, my first thoughts were MarkP was caught by surprise, his horse was truckin and he thought he was sorted, by the time he realised it, and the horse responded to Mark it was too late, hey it was only the tip of the nose in it but there it is.....no conspiracies, sometimes yuh get that on the big jobs :rcfe-smile: jot that one down to a big fat BUGGGAAHHH!!!!

From AS website

ULTIMATE SNIPER HEADS NORTH FOR ASSESSMENT -BUT NOTHING SERIOUS

Mark said Ultimate Sniper would be assessed by experts in the Waikato “just in case there is something bothering him”

“Nat said he just felt a couple of times in the Derby that he might do something wrong and he ran greenly in the straight. He is such a genuine horse you would worry that something might be bothering him and we might as well settle that straight away. How long he will be up there depends on what everges but it is a precautionary thing at this stage”

Ultimate Sniper comfortably won the NZ Derby on Friday and so any problem is likely to be minor. Better to know than not.
