I thought that Alsakib had far too much to do turning in but David knew different.

He takes a lot of very poor rides from other trainers but if he is on a fancied one for Balding he seldom lets me down.

The mystery to me is why Andrew Balding uses PJ McDonald who can't be in the top 100 riders for me. Is it an owner connection? I can't imagine that Juddmonte asked for him to ride Array. Its not as if he is a lightweight at 8.9. Not sure Alkasib was a steering job with 6 lengths to find in the last 2 furlongs. Anyway if others are willing to oppose Probert, I am happy to get a better price.

Probert is the very worst kind of jockey. Capable, reliable and always gets the job done, but carries my money like a two stone penalty.

You don't think he just took advantage of them going too quick on the front end? The leader finished in a different parish. I would chalk the second up for finishing clear of the rest. I doubt Kingman gets many mile and a half winners so interesting to see how this one progresses.

Personally, I would like to see the stable banging in a few more Array's - backed from 5/1-11/8 and never looked likely to justify the support.

BTT, grateful for a steer as to who isn't a dodgepot.

A non runner halved the prices but Array still shortened.
