Was there any need for Will Buick to sit 4 lengths behind him all through the race?

Making that ground up probably got the horse beat.

He's not as good as he was but that was his class coming to the fore there. Love to see it!
Report Poppydog. August 20, 2021 2:34 PM BST
He probably is getting too old.

Not the horse he was by any means, but Frankie used all his experience and class to get him up
and I doubt there are that many jockeys around who would have won on him today.
Report themightymac August 20, 2021 2:34 PM BST
Anyone explain what the point is in Buick switching the whip when he never used it even once?

Stradivarius was much the best for me why retire horse looks like he still enjoys his racing well done to the owner for keeping him in training.

He's 6/4 for the Doncaster Cup next friday. The present ground is good to firm (weather forecast is dry) rendering Trueshan a very unlikely runner, I believe. He's not improving, but against these opposition? Game over, I think, unless Princess Zoe could gain her 1st win since Oct 2020.

Best price is 11/10 (from 6/4) now with one or two on 8/11 and 4/5; Princess Zoe earmarked for Cadran a race she won last year.

Class? He just managed to beat/outstay Spanish Mission last time out. I believe today's oppositions were pants, and possibly worse ever of the race.
Report impossible123 May 13, 2022 3:20 PM BST
He was behind Search For A Song (2nd) when odds-on and 7th at Ascot; the ground was soft that day, and Frankie nearly pulled him up. But, good ground today; 6/4 is too tempting. I just hope he's fit.

His last G1 win was nearly two years ago.
They're lowering their sights these days.

12th at Ascot? Write that race off. If fit enough and has deteriorated any further should hose up here.

The opposition is one of the worst against him. If he's sufficiently fit to do himself justice he's weighted to reverse placing with Tashkan. The ground's the key here.
