It is most disappointing for COM backers to be beaten by an unfancied horse from the same yard.
so Jack, did Wave really get the 7f ? Sickened, didn't do any jumping up and down but tried to coax his to the finish line - the last 50yds was just too much, even Cracksman made nearly 1L back on him,
Such a long time in the planning, .. 1.12 in-play .. at least I didn't lose much, but oh what a sweet victory it would have been,
AO'B gutted !

AOB said Cliffs of Moher (CoM) could be Eclipse bound. Could he be on the same wavelength as some here regards CoM's Derby race eg he was coming to the end of his tether? I think the prospect of CoM winning a prestigious Group 1 12f is very limited.If CoM does take the Eclipse (10f) route it seems unlikely Churchill will be up in distance until the Juddmonte International at the earliest; if CoM excels over 10f even less chance of Churchill doing so to avoid an encounter, I firmly believe.
It's tempting to think so, and definitely the standard line at this stage, but I wonder if CoM is good enough ?? How good was yday ? Will he need to step up on that again to win a 10f G1 - if he does so well then surely they'll be kept apart,
Will be interesting to see how Ribchester gets on, and the other 4yo+ 1m, 1m2 horses
