Elusive Pimp heading to france for thier Derby.

Would like to see Xtension go close but dont think he is quite good enough, even though those who beat him at Newmarket had the benefit of a run. A softening in the ground could make it interesting for one or two of these.

Canford Cliffs/ Noll Wallop

Can't decide.  See someone got 30/1+ on CC. Shocked Well done.

Any Steinbeck backers out there??  :)

ConfusedWhat about siyouni,the one that was given a bullshit ride in france today,so ended up not having a race?
When: 16 May 10 21:54
Steinbeck for me gents, he'll be an absolute superstar this season Happy
When: 16 May 10 21:56
Is he a beautfifully bred individual imo??

When: 16 May 10 22:08
BJG he's a lovely looking fellow Steinbeck, full in his frame and a big imposing 3YO colt. He's a truly beautifully bred individual by the superb Guineas winner Footstepsinthesand and out of a Danehill mare. He'll make a real name for himself this season Happy

Steinbeck and Jan lead O'Brien Guineas hopes

BY TONY O'HEHIR 12:58PM 17 MAY 2010

STEINBECK, ruled out of the 2,000 Guineas due to setback, and Jan Vermeer are among nine Aidan O'Brien-trained colts among the 20 acceptors for the Abu Dhabi Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Saturday.

Jan Vermeer has not raced since winning the Group 1 Criterium International at Saint-Cloud in November, while O'Brien's other acceptors for Saturday's Classic following the final forfeit stage on Monday are Air Chief Marshal, Dynasty, Encompassing, Fencing Master, Fighting Brave, Purple Heart and Viscount Nelson.

O'Brien will be bidding for a seventh Irish 2,000 Guineaswin and his third in a row following Henrythenavigator in 2008 and Mastercraftsman a year ago.

With the exception of Air Chief Marshal all of O'Brien's possible runners are entered for the Investec Derby on June 5.

Canford Cliffs, third in the 2,000 Guineas, heads the list of British-trained acceptors. His trainer Richard Hannon won the Curragh Classic with Don't Forget Me in 1987 and with Tirol in 1990.

The other British-trained acceptors are the Ralph Beckett-trained Oasis Dancer, 2,000 Guineas fourth Xtension and the Peter Chapple-Hyam pair Morana and Zaahy.

Also listed for Saturday's race over the straight mile at the Curragh are the Jim Bolger-trained Free Judgement, winner ofthe Group 3 Tetrarch Stakes on his most recent start, John Oxx's Keredari, who won the Listed Loughbrown Stakes at the Curragh last month, and the Tommy Stack-trained Noll Wallop, winner of the Group 3 Leopardstown 2,000 Guineas Trial in March.

The ground at the Curragh on Monday morning was described as "good" on the straight course and "good to firm" on the round course.

I'd be interested in Shintoh if it lined up !!! very impressive yesterday against reasonable yard sticks (Barack was a close 2nd to king jock who was unlucky against famous name)...encompassing is a woof woof though

Coolmore/O'brien leave in 9 horses. What a bunch of ****s. The more i watch racing, the more i begin to dislike them. There's just no need whatsoever to have nine entries. They have also watered down the site after originally looking as if they would keep regular updates on O'Brien trained horses after pulling the plug on his site.

One that won't be winning is Noll Wallop. One horse race last time.
When: 17 May 10 20:25
Agree with Prosp on this one despite a few stats being against him (no of runs, date of birth).

Think this course and the likely breakneck pace will suit him more than the others that reoppose from the English version.

Xtension's trainer form is enough to put me off him despite being a perfect 'trend' horse.
When: 17 May 10 20:27
date of birth stat, wtf

shirley no one takes that seriously Plain
When: 17 May 10 22:12
You have to Gunny, when dealing with horses that are so young, a Jan/Feb foal has to have a natural advantage over a May foal. Esp if the trends back it up.
When: 17 May 10 22:17
Cox had two placed runners today HFC with a debutant beaten a Head.
Listening to him earlier he said his horses were behind this season compared with the same time last year .. due to the winter etc. Same for most trainer though I suspect.

He does seem quite bullish,tbf.

Note to The Lay Preacher . . . absolutely no chance of soft ground this weekend. Hasn't **** Turpin beaten Canford twice?
  Ballydoyle seem very sweet on Steinbeck, not so much Lillie Langtry (possibly needs a run). Fencing Master also liked, as are RVW, Cape Blanco, Age Of Aquarius and Rocket Man. Midas Touch going the right way but twice beaten by Jan Vermeer.
Awe Inspiring may go straight for the Oaks.
When: 18 May 10 10:07
Steinbeck only a possible!!!! Shock shock horror horror. Has he ever missed an engagement before?

Fencing Master, That Ballydoyle crowd better leave plenty of pacemakers in the race unlike in Newmarket.
When: 18 May 10 10:42
It's really not on same owner/stable declaring 9 for a race.
When: 18 May 10 10:59
Have you lot seen all the rain forecast for Ireland today ? Looks solid from 5pm until 11pm.

Didn;t Aidan say on his website before it was pulled down that Steinbeck could run in this ''with a view to Royal ascot''.  It would take one hell of a performance for him to win anyway given the strength of the opposition.
When: 18 May 10 11:07
Sint - shouldn't be more than 5mm of rain, at least it should stop the dc's from watering, maybe a shower on either thur or fri, but rest of the week to be warm and dry. Gnd is Good, Gf on the round course. Should be the same by the weekend, unless they fkn water! [>o]
When: 18 May 10 12:11
Curragh learned a bitter lesson about watering last year when local hero Sea The Stars didn't run in the Irish Derby.
Heatwave expected this weekend.
We don't know what will win - or even what will run! - but please no more wishful thinking abbout the ground.
Realistically, has Canford Cliffs really set the world alight since last year's Coventry? He's very good no question, but with doubts about trip and ground will he beat the massed ranks of Ballydoyle. A big ask.
