Was anyone else deeply impressed by the Cesarewitch Trial last week, in which the first three stormed clear of a competitive field?
Looking at the collateral form I consider that this race is currently underrated by as much as ten pounds, although the implication of this has to be that Oriental Fox put up a (much improved) top drawer performance. Inexplicable as it may be, I believe this to be the fact and view it as a scintillating achievement.
Having regard to the Cesarewitch, given the penalty he incurred and mindful of the possibility of him going for the Champions Long Distance Cup a week later, I think that the horse to take out from the race is Brockwell who was also running on stoutly though just outpaced.
I am astonished that he still trades at 25/1 as half that price would be generous in my opinion.

As often the case, I suppose the reality lies probably somewhere in  the  middle ground.
I agree with you all that rationally the likelihood of such extraordinary improvement is vanishingly small, but I cannot dispel the feeling that something pretty unusual has occurred here!

cheers BJG.

I've had a bet on Moidore at 33/1. He may need the going slightly softer but his form from a handicapping p.o.v. looks fair to me. Gave 2lb to Well Sharp back in May and although he was beat 6 lengths, Well Sharp is now 20lb higher. Moidore is 10lb better off with Oriental Fox from their Newcastle run and he gave 13lb to Statutory who has just slammed Prescott's horse Mutual Regard (rated 95) by an easy 8 lengths at Pontefract. Whether i'm right or wrong 33/1 seems rather big to me.

As I have already noted, whatever you make of the merits of the Trial race, Oriental Fox undoubtedly put in a remarkable performance that day.
However, with a 5lb pull for a 5 length beating, Brockwell must have a real chance of turning the tables and yet is still twice the price!
I think he should be on your shortlist.

Brockwell won his first handicap off 68, is running off 92 on Sat. You guys fancy him for a career best?
Report Stevie Gerrard October 8, 2013 3:58 PM BST
I think a lot of the horses in the race will have won off much lower marks in the past sint, don't think that matters. As for a career best being needed then perhaps it will although I think he is overpriced on that last run and also his Goodwood run he is 4lb better off (without inc jock allowance) with Lieutenant Miller so even that gives him a reasonable chance. Course, distance and ground no problem and has run well in these big handicaps before. 25s looks a bit of value to me, I think he should be on the 14/16 to 1 mark
Report aft October 8, 2013 4:07 PM BST
The  form of his last run may prove to be much better than generally believed, as I have opined at the beginning of this thread.
He has always been a progressive sort.
Report sintonian October 8, 2013 4:23 PM BST
Yes they have Stevie. The majority of horses have progressed up the handicap.

I have added Chiberta King at 25/1 with Oisin Murphy riding. He takes off 5lb, OR 102, so will effectively be 97 witch is 1lb lower than his last handicap win. He has not ran in a handicap for over two years, all of his runs since June 11 have been mostly Listed and Group 2's. Earlier in the season he won at Royal Ascot and stayed on well. He is thoroughly exposed now but he is taking a drop in class. Last run was a Group 2 and whilst he was well beaten some of those horses who beat him that day he had previously well beat himself so im inclined to think it was a slight prep race as he had not ran for over 60 days.
Report Stevie Gerrard October 8, 2013 4:32 PM BST
Yes he is an interesting one sint, he would similar class to Aaim To Prosper who won the race off 107 last year. I think they met a couple of times and there wasn't much between them. Balding used Murphy on Highland Colori for the Ayr Gold cup too. So yes he does look one to have on your side. I may also add him in also.

Wouldn't be surprised if's he's been aimed at the race Steve, Worth a pop given yard form and jockey booking imo.

Agree Judo. Think he looks ridiculously short tbh, seems to be based on the trainer saying he thinks the horse is well handicapped.

The horse he beat in the Queen Alexandra aint too shabby either,Shahwardi, just a shame he has not ran since. He was runner-up in the same race the previous year to Simenon who nearly won the Ascot Gold Cup this year. Shahwardi has some other useful form to horses like Tac de Boistron who was 2nd in the Prix Du Cadran at the weekend. Of course you can pick holes in some of the form as you always can but with the 5lb claim it's worth a punt at 25/1 imo.

Draw can put a kibosh on his chance though.

Report betilyerded October 8, 2013 9:50 PM BST
Brockwell has a far better chance than Chiberta King imo. Balding is a target trainer and the Queen Alexandria was CK's target. The form isnt worth a hill of beans with horses rated 86 and 80 2 lengths way in 4th & 5th. They said he would be put away for the Ces after that and there he was 3 weeks later getting humped out of sight at Sandown and again at Donny. Intersting to see Jason Tart back on board Brockwell after a cracking run in the Northumberland Plate - think he would have been 2nd with another furlong. Was given too much to do at Goodwood, an indifferent ride at Ascot and returned from a 42 day break to run creditably at Newmarket, granted, given a right thumping by Oriental Fox. That "trial" race has yet to throw up the winner so a note of caution but at 20's there are worse punts.Has been well punted in the last week too. i was hoping for a monsoon and Johnny delta to slip in at the bottom but looks unlikely nowSad

yep fair enough that was off a mark of 91. He's also won on Soft over hurdles so may be it will be OK.

Pallasator likely to go off Fav now imo given the draw. He has the same sire as Treve! Motivator, so won't mind the rain.

Am going to caveat this post with a confession I have never picked the winner of this race. Had a few close but never the actual winner. I have had a real close look and have decided to cut it down to low draw and hurdlers who have won over 2m+ so have picked Chiberta King @25/1 and Recession Proof @ 25/1. Good luck to all.

Chilberta King  had some  hot form with Aim to Prosper back in 2012 beat him a couple of times not getting any weight , the  last time was  in september  2012 , as Aim to prosper went on to win the Ces  off the welter weight of 9.10 that year    , Chilbutra King has to be taken seriously   in this event running  off 97 when his brilliant young Jockeys allowance  is taken into account   ,

His run in the QA may be a  little misleading as he  practically pulled his way to the front  after about two miles of the race , he was tiring toward the end  of that  two mile six furlong contest  ,he should be fine over  over  18 furlongs , I like this one and  Tiger cliff  gl all
in as tough a race to solv as ever  was

Like the Arc I am not sure the Ces draw will be that significant given that, in my opinion, a lot of dross was and is drawn low in the respective races. Wouldn`t be surprised to see the race develop up the middle of the track.Would still give Tiger Cliff,Big Easy,Seaside Sizzler and Lieutenant Miller good chances.

I know stakes form can be unreliable in handicaps, but 91 looks VERY lenient.

You can tie yourself in knots attempting to analyse the effects of the draw in this or any other flat race. The draw  doesnt matter in this race. I used to think so but really, it doesnt. King Revo was drawn in 36 when only finding the mighty sergeant cecil one too good back in 2005. never can tell was similarly drawn when winning the other year. Landing Light was drawn low when he won but they came down the other side of the course so in essence he was drawn high. Its nonsense!! Which is why if the ground doesnt deteriorate as badly as some think then the 16-1 that Leiutenant Millar has gone out to could look very big this time tomorrow. I'll take him and Johnny Delta e/w at 80-1.

With more rain forecast it could be soft ground by racetime.
If so, Pallasator would be of interest.

Pete, there is a right-hand turn at 90 degrees which makes the draw important, you don't want to be stuck wide on it as obviously you'll be covering more ground.

I really don't see the angle with chiberta king miracle stuff for cannot win off this mark

pallasator is of interest but he does tend to idle and as much as i like him he cannot be bet with confidence at the trip...a great plot this...i really don't care the ground is going against domination as think he can handle this for one race...i like him a lot...he is well in

if the french horse wins it will be the equal miracle of chiberta king and he has his ground...pure heroine for me and i will give up if either of these win... on an equal note will be recession proof who has been flogged down the years...and has nothing left

anyway a brutal affair and as a few know i am brutal but honest...

love the ces and a rag with a chance is swinging hawk even though he is in the car park...

Cheers Sint. I take your point. I suppose it depends how bunched up they are when they hit the bend.
They also have a good gallop before they get there, if my memory serves. Anyway, if you and Judo both
agree it matters then that's good enough to convince me.Happy

Hope that blew the draw angle out of the water for good. If a horse can give that much ground away and still win then really, what does a few lengths gained on an inside draw matter.
