That won’t be happening...got taken off his feet in a handicap at the track. A bit like Frodon this sort of distance looks perfect for him at the moment. Could be a King George horse or Gold Cup horse next year....

Where has the improvement come from incredible how much it found turning in one of the best performances I have ever seen at Ascot

Agreed. STD and his mount not in tune one bit either. He’s getting worse.....won on Al Dancer but that was a steering job.

Could quite easily get an RPR in the low to mid 180s for today's performance. Along the lines of Bristol De Mai when he apparently ran to 182 in the 2017 Betfair Chase, Im quite sure it's more a case of horses for courses, the race being run to suit him best and relevant excuses for the opposition, as opposed to him suddenly ranking in the upper echelons of equine greats.

How else can you explain the sudden improvement in the horse. Is it PFNs magic wind ops or carrots?!

To put it into some perspective the best RPRs of some recent greats:
Denman 184
Best Mate 178
Kauto Star 191
Master Minded 186

Cyrname given an RPR of 181 for yesterdays performance which at face value is fair enough.

But in addition to the list of horses I already provided, the 181 rating is only 2lb from Altior's best ever run. LaughLaughLaugh

Suddenly after 10 runs over fences and 16 races in total, this horse is running nearly 20lb better than its previous best run? Im thinking more and more its down to having a serious liking for the course and distance more than any other factor. Like Britsol De Mai at Haydock. If the horse can run to that mark consistently elsewhere, then Nicholls has just found his next good un.

the total avoidance of Cheltenham would suggest that the horse is only suited to flat, right handed tracks. They are going to have a lot of success at Ascot, Sandown and Kempton

the performance yesterday was truly amazing, just like the previous run in a handicap. Winning both races with bags in hand, just grinding the opposition in to the dirt

I don't think you can give the performance anything other than a massive rating, given the level of opposition and the margin of victory (with a bit up his sleeve too)

Was at Ascot yesterday (lovely day not a sign of trouble) everything was on it's last legs apart from this one, ran right up to the line and off the back of it's own running too. some serious horse this one imo

could be a very versatile horse regarding trip, finishing that strongly over 2.5 miles stepping up to 3 miles looks an absolute given
Report cyclops February 17, 2019 9:00 PM GMT
Ascot is nowhere near flat. Not really Sandown either.
Think it's the right hand thing that's key for him.
