Are these walk in the park progeny few and far between in uk and irl at the moment or do we have a few more to look forward to in the coming weeks? Have any others already been out and if so how have they fared? Surely min and douvan aren't the only walk in the parks around!
Just had a quick look on the Racing Post database - Sampark looks pretty interesting based on his French form last Spring.
Gary Moore has a couple - Antony (pulled up at Kempton over Christmas) and Puisque Du Pars (not seen since falling at Fontwell last April)who look potential improvers but nowhere near the level of Douvan and Min. Same goes for Robert Walford's Walk In The Mill who ran well behind Doctor Phoenix on his British debut before appearing to get stuck in the mud at Chepstow nto.
Not sure the research is particularly meaningful, but a pleasant enough way to while away 10 minutes!

Cheers ReaseHeath appreciate the time and effort, interesting as you say, with a couple of potential improvers, particularly when trained by Moore.
No problem, just looked a bit further and sadly Puisque Tu Pars fall at Fontwell was fatal so count him out.
Anyway, should probably get back to Min as per thread - interesting that on the day Champagne Fever went off at 5/1, Vautour at 7/2, Douvan 2/1 - Min already 7/4.
