Again we find ourselves at the mercy of AOB. By all intents Australia is miles his best 2 year old and has all of the entries. He also easily beat Free Eagle about whom jockey and trainer had been eulogising. With 20 entries in the Dewhurst, far more the anyone else it shows how Coolmore have cornered the classic markets. Other top class trainers, better than AOB imo, have almost nothing to go to war with because the Coolmore operation keeps all of the best bred horses. Unless the other owner breeders bring something through like Frankel but he was a huge exception we await AOB's pleasure.
If this is the case for AOB in that 'Coolmore have cornered the classic markets' then why has he only won 1 of the last 5 runnings of the 2000 guineas?
For me at the moment Berkshire and Toormore represent the best form
