Watched it again now, and twice. He didn't go that fast in front, so no wonder he won. Some poor tactics behind? Yes, most likely. Normally, with that longer more than 3 furlongs straight once you come off Tattenham Corner at Epsom, you expect to catch a leader who is normally tiring. Think about it, you have to make a quick decision. If you make the wrong one, in a mere 10 to 15 seconds, you have lost the chance to make amends.

As usual - in total agreement wonder. Few riders from that race covered themselves in glory - of the jockeys on the principals only Murphy I think rode any sort of credible race.

AOB watched the race with his family at home. He said Donnacha said after 5f "Emmet wins here" in a post race interview immediately after the race.

A shambolic performance by all the jockeys except the front 3 from the outset; Dettori and Murphy ought to be ashamed of themselves not waking up to what was happening at the front until way, way too late.

I don’t think Murphy can be criticised too much. He had his mount probably far more prominent than expected. I guess he was expecting one of the other idiots to give him a lead. The likes of Moore, Dettori, Dwyer, etc haven’t even given punters a run for their money.....

It was an awful misjudgment from all but the winning jockey.

Probably Oisin was on a non stayer so that whole thing is an elephant.

But the 7f race earlier broke the track record.

The lack of ability to pace for conditions  has been shown up horribly here for many jockeys. But it has been an obvious flaw for a long time. A UK based jock with a good head clock is priceless.

Also, actually paying attention helps.  Look at that Kirby ride today where he guessed or knew the apparent bias was false.

They are available on Racing TV twitter feed, it is interesting comparing the positions of Love and English King at key stages of the race.

After the fifth furlong, English King was 4 lengths ahead of Love
After the eighth furlong Love was 8 lengths ahead of English King
After the tenth furlong Love was 7 lengths ahead of English King
At the line Love was 9 lengths ahead of English King.

Facts may well be right about the winner but you can't help thinking that the jockeyship of the rest left much to be desired.
Report roggrain July 5, 2020 9:30 AM BST
There is a huge advantage to a trainer having multiple runners in a race. Forgetting team tactics for a moment consider this: Most race outcomes

are determined by the pace of the first half of the race. With 6 entries a trainer can run a pacemaker, a tracker a couple of mid pack runners

and a couple of come from behind types. That way he's got all pace scenarios covered.

In this instance the pacemaker had no company and the jockey was able to get a long breather into him coming down the hill while the rest just

sat and waited. If he'd had company early on he wouldn't have been able to get a breather in and might well have come back to the field.
Report Facts July 5, 2020 9:40 AM BST
Look at The Oaks. Tear away front runners were also a huge distance in front , at one point it  seemed the chasers might not pick them up. But they did - and Love showed her greatness.

Same happened in The Derby, but this time the winner didn't come back and the rest couldn't pick him up.
I don't think it was a poor horse ' allowed' to win by poor judgement of chasing jockeys.
They wrongly assumed it was ' just ' a pace horse.

Looking back at Derby's from the past it is noticeable how many winners came from a long way back. Most of them, though,  were really class horses.

Yesterday I don't think the race was a very good one for Derby standards, but we shall see in the future if the first three all improve - especially the first and the third.

Yes, the jockeys behind looked to have got it wrong to a certain degree but one lesson I hope they, and punters, should take from this race is that any O'Brien, lightly-raced horse with few credentials, is rarely just a pacemaker nowadays. Last year's Irish Derby saw a similar outcome.

In the end, horse racing is a very uncertain sport. If it wasn't there would be no betting on it because who would ever lay bets when the outcome was entirely predictable? Yesterday was a great example of this.

BUT, a great shame it has happened in our most famous race with the attention of the world upon it. Although those of us who are mature and experienced punters know that what happened yesterday is part of the game (and I'm not wholly excusing the jockeys with that statement) there will be a large number of casual punters, plus younger ones who have not yet learned to take the ups and downs, who are now convinced the game is wholly bent when it isn't - although we all know strokes are pulled.

Yesterday was not a stroke, it was just a combination of things.

Serpentine did the first 5f in the same time as the non-jigging pacemakers in the Oaks.  Seems likely he went faster than ideal.  Some of the others probably went slower than ideal.  He's obviously very progressive, probably going to be underrated, but possible this race will take a while to recover from
