Looks like the real deal - on the telly at least.

Obviously a late maturer, but he doesnt seem to have the confirmation of a real backward type?

I am quite minded of Shamardal as a type? Am I wrong again?

No,could it be that HRH finally gets that elusive Epsom Derby winner?Do you think Sir John has got it right?

You know how it is when Sun reading celebrities threaten to leave the country if so and so get's elected? And most of us wish for that result so we'll be rid of them.

Well I dare you to wish for 'Sir John' because if so. I'm outta here Cry

I'd like to know how much the packages from Darley/Aga cost.
Do we think the Sheikh will be a good loser?

Mind you I'm not sure Aidan's two couldn't improve dramatically, particularly Recital.

Curious of the Aga/Darley deal.
Street Cry is a serious sire I see Wachman had Splashpoints full sister Feathers And Bows ( Street Cry (IRE)  (7.9f) — Dianehill (IRE) ) run yesterday in the Tabor colors so everyone is taking notice of him.

As for Carlton House love the head down ears back attitude betting wise 2/1 not for me tho!

visually taking performance and has the right team behind him, but posted a speed figure lower than the class4 2m2f race (and if they were sprinting that final furlong from a slowly run race it was not reflected in RP final furlong time)

Mr P line only had 1 derby winner (albeit last years), only High Rise foaled later of recent winners (and only Oath and STS in April) and with only 1 gp1 2nd and gp3 3rd was it really that strong a race after all the hype stripped away, looked more like the old school glasgow stakes of yesteryear

would love it for the old jellybean

Prima, I assume you will be at Epsom and I don't want to put any pressure on you personally, but as a man that makes things happen. . . Well just make sure if she does pull that sword out that someone grabs it from her and does the 'decent' thing to you know who and puts us out of our misery [;)]

I seem to remember a tale along those lines many years ago! Thing is I don't know if it was true.
You don't need to get married these days to cover things up, but I suppose if you get to jump 85 steps up the social/financial ladder - why not? Laugh
