Good news that Auguste Rodin is being kept in training for next year. He has shown toughness to twice bounce back from very poor runs to win 3 of the best turf races this year.  He is proven on a wide range of turf goings and, bearing this in mind, the Arc could be a good target.  I would much prefer a Coolmore 4yo than a 3yo for the Arc, which puts me off City Of Troy at the moment.

I hope this is one of his races prior to his main objective Breeders Cup Classic, but unlikely given the state of the going plus Coolmore's multi-candidates for this race. I think his main target is the Breeders Cup Classic to market to the American breeding candidates.

And, if he takes to the Dirt Coolmore could charge a monumental fee for his service as a stallion.

Can not see them running him on dirt.

Maybe the Arc, but would think Prince Of Wales, Irish Champion and Breeders Turf would be the main targets.

Auguste Rodin would be a very bad choice for the Arc.
If the going is soft, and it often is, he would probably be withdrawn.
He would probably bleed, as his dam bled, and he probably has too.

Has Ballydoyle sent any Oaks (even winning) filly here? Found won it the next year; Minding bypassed probably because of Found and her stablemates.

Snowfall & pretty sure Love was going to run but was taken
out for ground reasons,could be wrong there though.

Thanks 'penzance'. I'm thinking about Ylang Ylang (50/1) here. And, AOB has maybe just Continuous; Auguste Rodin is very unlikely; City Of Troy (zilch chance of making it or even Epsom).

re Passenger - do you think 12f on likely soft would be his kind of thing elis ? - could always request an add to market - I'd be interested myself

Won beautifully other day, caught my eye and jumped on for RA - since shortened pretty quickly but guess we'll find out fairly soon if he'll suit that longer trip

agreed, probably wont even run, but i looked at the exchange and was hoping for huge odds which i would have taken as nothing in the entries stand out for me at the moment.

33/1 with the Stoke firm.
There did used to be a  thread where you could ask for horses to be added to A/Post races.
Report clouded leopard May 16, 2024 4:51 PM BST
Had eyes peeled for exactly same thing hoping for at least a trade but 12f/soft going might be a proper stretch imo

Either way he looks one for the season

George Murphy, the winning trainer's assistant and son, said: “Roger O'Callaghan recommended White Birch to us initially. He wasn't really a breeze-up type and we bought into him after he was broken. We were very lucky and look at him now, he's top class. He's got a lot stronger and just seems to be doing things very easily now. He's a serious horse and that was a top-class performance.

“Dropping him back to a mile and a quarter has improved him. He came from off the pace a few times last year after he was a bit slow leaving the gate, and maybe that made him look like more of a stayer but he always had plenty of boot. He's showing everyone what he can do this year.”   .
