To be honest if the pundits didn’t kiss his a55 and tell us how wonderful he is and how he’s the ‘world’s best jockey’ I wouldn’t criticise him so much.....he is just an average joe end of. He doesn’t deserve being commented on any more than that. He’s nowhere near the best jockey in this country let alone the world. He never has been any good either. Dettori and Fallon in recent times are streets ahead of him let alone some of the legends. And the likes of O Murphy, SDS and Doyle are in a different league to him entirely now. Even Donaccha is miles better than him in fact at Ballydoyle!

If one had been backing Moore on AOB inmates at Epsom this week one would be a lot poorer having being robbed on shorter prices for his mounts and mistaking the finishing posts. Anyone still unconvinced Royal Ascot beckons soon, and the proof is in the eating, as the saying goes; Dettori will whip his behind (again).

Moore on Pink Dogwood in the Oaks was awful: Moore was at the back, and on the outside eg giving almost 9l to Dettori who was on the rails; coming round all the others and taking it up with 2f to go was ill-judged, and solely responsible for the filly's defeat who was having her 1st run over 12f. I bet whoever rides her in the Irish Oaks will never repeat that tactic again or ever.

Also, I remembered clearly Tabor the owner of Roly Poly the filly who'd just won the Falmouth from the front when asked if he'd backed her said yes because Moore told him he'd ride the filly from the front unlike in all her previous races.

Aidan O'Brien, in his interview with Racing TV, stated that Moore was close to choosing Anthony Van Dyck but implied that he almost felt obliged to pick Sir Dragonet once 'the lads' had made the decision to supplement him (not a verbatim quote but the gist of what he said).

I can sort of see that - it would've undermined the decision to supplement Sir Dragonet if he'd picked one of the others - Coolmore/Ballydoyle probably no different to any other large organisation in that decision making is sometimes as much down to political considerations as merit.

It should n't be forgotten that Donnacha rode Hermosa in all her work prior to the 1,000 Guineas and presumably could've ridden her in the race but chose to ride Iridessa for his brother (understandably on racecourse form). I knoww we all know this but still best to alomst ignore the jockey bookings when they're mob handed.

With regards to Moore's riding, I would n't be his fiercest cricket but the ride on Pink Dogwood would n't be his finest hour - elite sport is unrelenting, his stable have won 3 of the 4 English classics and he has n't been on any of them - no matter how tough you are mentally the pressures must affect your judgment and confidence at certain points - he probably went a tad too soon on Pink Dogwood as a result.

Report asparagus June 3, 2019 9:19 AM BST
It's pretty simple.

1. Coronation Cup. Moore rides beautifully. He's on a very strong stayer that takes a while to wind up. You would be totally wrong to ride on the inside and wait for gaps on this type of horse so he rides two wide around tattenham corner so that he can swing slightly wide into the straight as horses so often do at Epsom to get a clear run particularly if you are on a horse that comes with a long run. He comes with the run and times it perfectly on a strong stayer and pulls clear of most of the field but to everyones surprise Defoe produces a lifetime best after two slightly below par performances so far this season, quickens up very well and Kew Gardens is quite clearly beaten fair and square on the day.

2. The Oaks. Moore rides a similar race. There is a slight difference in that Pink Dogwood was having her first run over the trip. However, everything about her breeding (full sister to Latrobe) suggests she will stay strongly. It's very easy to say with hindsight that on the day the horse didn't stay as well as others (the winner, the 3rd,  plus others saw  the race out much stronger than Pink Dogwood) and he might have held on to her longer but he can only do what's right at the time. In any case it's hard to believe that Pnk Dogwood would have got past Annapurna if he had let that one get first run as Annapurna was clearly well on top at the line. You can ask Moore to go down the inside all around Tattenham Corner in midfield but then of course you are very likely to run into trouble. You take your choice but I'm quite certain that over the years particularly riding a strong fancy the route Moore took is the logical one.

3. The Derby. Like Kew Gardens its actually ludicrous to criticise this one. Moore was in a lovely position throughout the race and in a good position considering the pace. Moore and Doyle allowed the first 4 to go clear when they were going too fast. Perhaps some criticism of those jockeys is appropriate (though of course a couple of the Ballydoyle horses were in as pacemakers so it's just Dettori and Murphy that got it wrong)
As the field comes into the straight Donnacha is already pushing and shoving on Broome and looms up on Moore's outside. Mean while Madhmoon is also trying to close and comes up on his inside. You can see Moore doesn't really want to go for everything at this stage but he also needs to be doing enough to stop Broome and Madhmoon going past him because then he really would be in trouble. Initially he's not going for everything but madhmoon has quickened up well so he has to start going for it to stay with him. They all go for home and Anthony Van Dyck finishes stronger and wins perhaps helped by being less crowded than the other 4. This was actually somewhat ironic as for a large part of the straight Heffernan is trying to get Anthony Van Dyck to challenge wide but he keeps hanging in, but then Telecaster and the others on the inside drop away and he gets a clear run on the inside of the track.

We live in a sad world where people either through losing money or with an agenda are desperate to criticise those at the top of the game without being able to apply any logic or reasoning. Or in many cases people are just not intuitive enough to understand. Kew Gardens traded 1.01 and Pink Dogwood 1.08. Not sure how short Sir Dragonet went but clearly all 3 were given a great chance to win. They all hit the front, all looked strong stayers in advance and failed to deliver.

Obviously it's the Betfair forum and we are always unlikely to get reasoned argument and debate, just whinging punters trying to put the blame on someone else for their decisions. Carry on doing it guys and carry on losing or alternatively assess races and rides properly without an agenda and you might start winning.

Report mukdahan June 3, 2019 10:07 AM BST
I"m not disagreeing he give all three a chance of winning the point i made was he mistimed his challenge. By quickening at the three marker he was asking too much of the horses to quicken and maintain that acceleration to the line of a strong pace,  it takes an exceptional horse to be able to do that and all three were not of that calibre. If had had delayed his move by another furlong i feel all three win, thats the difference between a very good jockey and a great one , put Lester on those three hes calm and cool enough to wait and deliver one perfectly timed move like the deadly assassin he was.

after your beaten 6 times on fancied horses by horses coming on your inside ,one might think an elite jockey might just consider he,s not racing on the best part of the track, 2 AOB  horses coming from the clouds were the only 2 to finish on the outside of moore all week and just to rub salt in the wound managed to beat him on the line
Report asparagus June 3, 2019 10:47 AM BST
Rothman, cheers. Glad to see some sense on here.

Mukdahan, I agree in hindsight you can make that argument with Pink Dogwood though not certain it would have made the difference as she just didn't get home as well as expected. Or if O'Brien gave him instructions saying this filly doesn't take after her brother and has much more speed but might not get home so hold her up until very late then you might well criticise him but i very much doubt those were the thoughts/instructions. With regards to the other two for the reasons stated I think it's pretty ludicrous to criticise him. Certainly in the Derby a few jockeys went for home before him and he certainly couldn't risk allowing strong stayers such as Broome to go past him whilst waiting, particularly on a horse such as Sir Dragonet. Looking at how it ended you would certainly be clutching at straws to say he could have come behind Broome and win so he had to partly commit when he did. I've not seen any criticism of Murphy and Dettori who went too quick, of Donnacha and Hayes who committed before Moore or of Lordan who dropped his whip. Just of Moore. It's a bit unseemly.

1st time poster, I do tend to agree with you that the inside of the track may have been a good place to be. However, that's very much a surprise given that if anything usually the middle of the track is slightly faster and certainly not worse. Therefore it was pretty unlikely to think so in advance on the friday. On the saturday it's fresh ground on the inside which doesn't necessarily mean faster ground. Quite often on drying ground it's the ground that's already been opened up which dries faster. In any case all the first 5 home in the Derby tried to come down the middle in the straight so impossible to criticise Moore in such a scenario. As already stated Heffernan just didn't make it there because his horse kept hanging back in.

Moore was carp on Kew Gardens, period! And no defence on his behalf plz otherwise, you're deluded.

As for Pink Dogwood to be at the back and behind Mehdaayih given this filly was already in a hapless position was woefully wrong. Then rushed-up after being 9l down on Dettori who was next to the rails at the 2f marker was another bad, bad riding by Moore. Anyone who disagree will witness this tactic will not be repeated in the Irish Oaks in July; Pink Dogwood was not outstayed just expanded all her energy getting to the front (but) with 2f to go against Annapurna who was still not got at by Dettori when Pink Dogwood went a length up on her.

Just watch how Pink Dogwood will be ridden in the Irish Oaks. But, Moore did nothing wrong in the Derby; Sir Dragonet just got ran-out-of it by 2 classier experienced horses in AVD and Madhmoon, I believe. Also, the ground might not have helped her.

coming wide into straight from the back,he,s no idea as in case of defoe whats happening 4,5,6 horses to his inside, tactically he just rode like a decent apprentice keep wide,mid div to back of field,keep out of trouble ,give outside to no one in the straight and if the horse is good enough he wins,veracious all though not wanted in betting was probably his worst ride of the week, 10 furlong horse ridden like a sprinter hoping to get the trip

It's doubtful - even if one can attribute any blame to Moore for any of the rides in question - whether History has been changed in respect of anything but footnotes by the results at Epsom last weekend. Kew Gardens is an admirable sort no doubt, Pink Dogwood's day may yet come, and you suspect that were Broome a world beater O'Brien may not have run a phalanx of hopeless traffic to get in his way. One can hardly weep for the glory or potential breeding riches lost to the Ballydoyle machine.

The OP's question is interesting though, because there has been an example in the relatively recent past where the fallibility of men has rearranged the rightful historical pecking order among Thoroughbreds; I refer of course to the summer of 2003, and the series of calamitous rides that denied the majestic Falbrav his true place in Racing's Pantheon.
