backed Mojo Star Wn & E/W for this.
Hope he shows.

If the jolly stays others are running for a place at best. But, will he?

High Definition will be suited by the step up in trip. He is so one paced. This could be his day.
Report cryoftruth September 6, 2021 3:48 PM BST
High Definition has disappointed on a few occasions including last time out.
He must show them amazing stuff at home as he is so well regarded. The stable is not usually wrong, well about anything really. But he is not for me.

if any other owners paid the £50K could be worth
noteing but it's nothing to these owners.Got loads
to find on the book.Of course he could win but still
got a big question mark over him,to me anyway.

Ballydoyle is prepping him for The Arc. I think 50k for place money is a no-brainer considering his "form" against the shortie. An antepost "goner" has been resurrected. Now, hoping Dettori will be on-board.

Seriously, more chance of seeing Elvis performing at Wembley Arena than High Definition winning this.

just another throw of the dice for HD - and Coolmore have got nothing else for the race
Report impossible123 September 6, 2021 6:26 PM BST
HD is 12/1 with 365. I think the bookie is calling Coolmore bluff. I'd do the way the donkey's been running.

Favourite looks home and hosed, though I guess you'd have said the same about Shergar and Camelot. Only possible niggle might be if the ground was really fast but there is some rain forecast wed/thurs so he should be ok.

However odds on is not my bag so time to look for an alternative.

Can't have Ottoman Emperor staying on breeding and maybe a place lay of him is something to consider.

Not interested in High Definition - looks a £50k bluff by Coolmore to me. His Dante run was promising but he has looked a total dog since.
Sir Lucan is also quirky but he'd be the one I'd be most interested in to spring an upset (16 on here) but nothing on the lay side here which is a worry. Wait for final decs I guess though if Frankie is jocked up he'll be single figures.

The other one who looks a reasonable e/w bet is Youth Spirit at 25/1 - just a grinder but consistent and uncomplicated.

Is Fuzzy worth another chance? New jockey and trip, and supplemented for £50k. More money than sense, I gather.

the worst leger ever? thank goodness hurricane runs otherwise dear o dear.

its not really worst leger ever, its for the last many years worst horse racing ever id say, the standard and races is terrible/

I've been following the game since '85 and personally I don't remember the St Leger ever being a great race as far as quality goes. If lucky we get one runner, occasionally two, good enough to be typical Gp1 or Gp2 winners. This year's race looks at least up to scratch in my view.

Backed the favourite to win and each way saver on Mojo Star.
Report penzance September 11, 2021 4:00 PM BST
put up a good performance Mojo Star,no match
for the winner though,who did that well.
Report impossible123 September 11, 2021 8:24 PM BST
The best horse rightly won. Hurricane Lane had lbs in hand. But, over 12f in The Arc he's not for me nor Tarnawa. And, High Definition could be Cheltenham bound.
Report roadrunner46 September 11, 2021 8:43 PM BST
only race watched today, good performance from the winner, was wondering why coolmore sent over four donkeys for the race, suppose it was worth it for the prize money, didnt have a bet in the race, F/C did pay very well
Report .Marksman. September 12, 2021 1:50 PM BST
I think the Albert Bartlett would be the ideal trip for High Definition as he got badly outpaced at a crucial stage of the Leger and got passed by most of the field.  But I can see him really thriving at 3 miles with an uphill finish.  I wouldn't give up on him quite yet.
Report Platini September 12, 2021 5:30 PM BST
You weren't impressed by Taranawa ?   

I thought that was a great performance over a trip too short, and will put her spot on for the Arc.
I was on Adayar already but I've now hedged on the Weld mare at 5/1. 

Looks like a cracking Arc this year.

Appleby may have the 1st and 2nd in The Arc; Tarnawa (wfa a major deterrent) could be the meat in the sandwich.
