a sense of proportion is needed

Trueshan and Hollie Doyle win the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle
Trueshan and Hollie Doyle win the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle

By John Randall
5:00PM, JUN 26 2022

Trueshan made history with a record-breaking performance on Saturday, but let's not get carried away.

In terms of merit there can be a big difference between the weight a winner carries and the value of the form. Trueshan's feat is historic according to the first criterion, but not the second.

Among champion stayers in living memory, the best weight-carrying performance was by Levmoss, who defied 10st 10lb with an astonishing three-length victory in a Curragh handicap in 1969.

Levmoss had already won the Prix du Cadran and Ascot Gold Cup, and the 1m6f Leinster Handicap was owner-trainer Seamus McGrath's choice as a prep race for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, which the colt proceeded to win at odds of 52-1.

Under his welter burden of 10st 8lb, Trueshan easily beat the weight-carrying record for a Northumberland Plate winner – 9st 10lb by Barcaldine (1883), Karadar (1984), Bold Gait (1995) and Tominator (2013).

Barcaldine, the best horse to win the Plate, was a great champion who was unbeaten in a 12-race career that culminated at Newcastle. Ridden by Fred Archer, he triumphed in a canter by two lengths in a contest in which the bottomweight carried 5st 7lb.

Trueshan's effort was superficially superior, but that is merely because the scale of weights has risen. Winning the race under 9st 10lb in Victorian times meant much more than winning it under 10st 8lb today, when the quality of the fields in the big handicaps has dropped considerably.

Nineteenth-century champions routinely ran in handicaps, and the two greatest Flat handicap performances of all time may have been recorded by Isonomy when winning the Ebor by eight lengths under 9st 8lb in 1879, and the Manchester Cup under 9st 12lb the following May, giving up to 59lb to his rivals. Those herculean efforts came between his two victories in the Ascot Gold Cup.

Since 1900 it has became increasingly rare for top-class Flat horses to run in handicap company, but champion sprinter Irish Elegance put up a series of awesome weight-carrying performances as a four-year-old in 1919.

The former July Cup winner triumphed in the Salford Borough Handicap under 9st 9lb, Royal Hunt Cup (9st 11lb) and Portland Handicap (10st 2lb), and was second in the Stewards' Cup (10st 2lb). His contemporary Gainsborough won the Triple Crown, but Irish Elegance was greater.

However, it was French champion Epinard who, in defeat, put up probably the greatest handicap performance since 1900 on the Flat in Britain or Ireland.

Epinard, already winner of the Stewards' Cup, should have set a weight-carrying record for a three-year-old in the Cambridgeshire in 1923, but his incompetent jockey caused him to be beaten a neck by Verdict (received 18lb), a subsequent Coronation Cup victress.

In the immediate post-war era the champions whose handicap efforts went off the top of the scale included The Bug, Sayani, My Babu, Pappa Fourway, Princely Gift, Matador, Donald, Hafiz, Arcandy, Right Boy and Bleep-Bleep.

Levmoss's dazzling win at the Curragh has not been the only handicap performance superior to Trueshan's within living memory. Roman Warrior set the weight-carrying record for the Ayr Gold Cup when defying 10st in 1975, though he, like Trueshan, may have been one of those horses to whom weight makes little difference.

In any case, weight-carrying records can be misleading. Sea Pigeon won the Ebor under 10st in 1979 but was not top-class on the Flat, while Hoof It landed the Stewards' Cup under 10st in 2011 but was no champion.

On Racing Post Ratings, Trueshan (128) still ranks below Baaeed (130) and Nature Strip (129) on the Flat in Britain and Ireland so far this year. Those who hyped his Newcastle victory as one of the all-time great racing performances need to get a sense of proportion.
Report howard June 27, 2022 11:37 AM BST
When Isonomy won the Ebor there were I believe ( not remember ! ) half a dozen runners. How many did Levmoss beat in that h'cap ? He doesn't say. The race on Saturday was a well run race with a good sized field. If Sea Pigeon was not top class at around 14-16f he was very close. He was never aimed at group races at that distance and was trained for more valuable ( h'caps ) outside his optimum distance and also jump races that were often not run on the sound surface he prefered. One thing's for sure in my mind Sea Pigeon would have laughed at Trueshan on good ground around 14f.
Report howard June 27, 2022 11:48 AM BST
Mentioning Hoof it in the same sentence as SP is a joke.  By the latter's time h'caps had become much more contracted. The bottom weight carried 8-11.  I think Sea Pigeon gave around two and a half stone to a very decent 3-y-o in Donegal Prince. Ridiculous stuff from Randall.
Report howard June 27, 2022 12:07 PM BST
Isonomy was an all time great but does he really think many  of these small field Victorian performances plenty on soft ground were better than modern horses post-Northern Dancer ?

You can beat any horse that doesn't like the ( soft ) ground or STAY the trip on such ground.  It's the kind of thinking that makes some think Flyingbolt was better than Arkle. They look good on the numbers but are often freak races.  Saturdays plate was well run well contested on a fair surface. He won because he's a Group One horse.  When was the last time we saw an already established  Group One horse run in a handicap ? I can't rembenber.

Trueshan is a normal physical specimen. RW was definitely not. Anyway before SP's time. My view is Trueshan put up the most remarkable handicap performance ( in a staying race where pounds count for more lengths ) since '79.  Randall is right about top class horses running 100's of years ago but is out of order with many other comments.

I've had decades of enjoyment reading Randall's articles but this incarnation is way past the sell-by date...it's
like gauging Clay v Liston against the version who fought Leon Spinks - still victorious but quite a bit missing.

This entire piece smacks of a typical bitter & twisted, grumpy old man who never got his knób sucked in the
swinging sixties and was a total "in the good old days" kinda geezer, absolutely gutted that the younger breed
were getting 'serviced' while he was busy smashing one off.

Ironically, I usually agree with that maxim about times gone by, but this sounds like begrudgingly faint praise.

I didn't know about Levmoss (that sounds hard to take in) but this old fárt has to go back over 50 years to
find anything remotely comparable to what Trueshan achieved at the weekend.

I much prefer the outlook I share with a couple of friends (and I'd suggest a few enthusiasts on here) in that
we weren't even fans of the horse, but we were blown away by what we witnessed, so there was no bias involved
whatsoever...just an appreciation of a once in a lifetime cracking performance.

I was even amazed they contemplated running with that weight - never mind winning the race!
I thought they were nuts...as well as the people who forced the gamble on it as I couldn't see it happening
though it was really pleasing to be proven wrong.

I don't care about the opposition...or how much improvement (or not) there might be in them - the fact
remains, it was a HANDICAP...and a big one over 2M at that and a rating of 120 didn't suggest he was on the slide.

C'mon John...credit where it's due - you're scraping the barrel in looking for what seems like wanting a comparison
to Frankel or something similar, which makes me wonder if there's possibly another angle to that article.
Maybe a personal slight at connections? Who knows...because John's a very smart man and can't claim stupidity.

I have to go back to Sea Pigeon shortheading a decent stayer called Shaftesbury in The Ebor, but with 'only' 10st
to make any sort of comparison.
I think Trueshan's performance towers over that despite another poster on this thread thinking the exact opposite
which is all about opinions I suppose - I wonder what would be the equivalent highest rating he achieved - not 120.

I loved Sea Pigeon but he was NOT a group one horse on the flat - the era was very different and he could've won
a few listed or pattern races if campaigned differently but you would've got a very big price about him for the
biggest staying events against Sagaro, Buckskin & Le Moss.

Report Gibberish June 27, 2022 8:44 PM BST
Howard - you're sounding a bit like John Randall crabbing Trueshan there - are you sexually frustrated too? Crazy

"Only won 2 champion hurdles after they reduced the distance" - I'm aware of that but I'd reckon there was more
to that as Monksfield was an entire (a rarity) when he finally got his revenge, Night Nurse had gone chasing and
Birds Nest was an unpredictable nutter (though a very likeable one)

I don't believe for one second it was the shorter distance that enabled Sea Pigeon to win two Champion Hurdles.
As good as Daring Run & Pollardstown were, they weren't exactly Night Nurse and a peak Monksfield, though they
would've been fair champions in any normal era.

I don't know what rating Sea Pigeon was on when he carried 10st in that Ebor but I doubt he would've been rated 120.
I'd suggest a few pounds below that (maybe 3/4/5) but nevertheless, what more can a top weight with a very high
rating do than win one of the season's biggest handicaps?

As for Goodwood...that's a fair point but he would've been up against it facing Le Moss et al.
Looking back...he could've won many a decent group race if Easterby had planned differently but there's no pleasing
everybody as we look back with such reverence & nostalgia at those days when there was more kudos for handicaps (giving
lumps of weight) than some of the often cheap grade ones nowadays like the Victor Chandler & Tingle Creek at level weights.

Mark Birch didn't think he could win ( he chose to ride No Bombs ) and neither did most punters ( 18/1 ) I think it was the ground more than the distance that was previously in Monksfield's favour as if my memory is correct he was fine on soft and probably liked it.  You will remember how bad the ground was at some festivals in those days.
