Workrider there might be good drying weather today but tomorrows forecast is suppose to be horrendous, didn't they take Darwin out at Leopardstown because of the changing ground conditions?.

If you fancy toolmore to win the national stakes you must be all over the Godolphin horse in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster today workrider, he got pretty close to him. hannon seems to be getting more staying 2yo types in the last season or two, interesting development. Hughes wasn't hard on Toolmore at Goodwood and I was very impressed.

Yeah Mitch think he,d have won if he made any effort,know it was a g3 but weak beforehand,back from bit of a layoff and in theory wanted a bit softer. Really thought watching it twas just a gentle introduction back.

His one in the next got an interesting ride last time out as well Mitch.

No effort made on Cape Of Approval today,jockey pulled it in behind Balomont Mast at the furlong pole for no real reason and with any type of a ride at all could have nearly won today.
Report punchestown September 14, 2013 3:05 PM BST
Only beaten about a length today even though finished 6th.
Report silvergreaser September 14, 2013 3:19 PM BST
Spotted that myself, a bit of strange ride, Lee had clear daylight but for some reason pulled in behind Balmont Mast for a few strides before pulling back out again.

Everyman and his dog spotted it so will be priced up accordingly next time.

He wasn't staying at home for nothing today,surely could have had a few decent rides at Doncaster but unfortunately I didn't take the hint either.
He has made quite a start at the training and fair dues to him but not many have the financial power of Stobart behind them starting off.

Eddie is at the Curragh Silver so it was only his crew with the shades.

Anyone fairly local know if much rain fell overnight please?
Report silvergreaser September 15, 2013 9:23 AM BST
Pa if there was any rain last night then it must have been very minimal as my drive way was bone dry this morning, there is a very healthy wind out there at the moment and some dark clouds so I'd say the rain is not far away but that breeze would've dried the track up even more.
Report silvergreaser September 15, 2013 9:24 AM BST
Actually as I typed the rain has just started to fall pretty light at the moment.
Report pa lapsy September 15, 2013 9:27 AM BST
Thanks very much Silver,know they were saying the North and West were going to get the brunt of it, hardly likely to make much difference now.
Report silvergreaser September 15, 2013 9:32 AM BST
According to Met Eireann the skies will clear with some heavy showers that should pass over quickly so it looks like the ground will be fine.
Report silvergreaser September 15, 2013 11:18 AM BST
There has been a steady drizzle since around 9.30am no major downpour as yet but the fresh breeze is still there.

The rain is just after getting a little bit heavier there now.

Thanks again SG, hardly be soft enough by race time for Voleuse de Coers,thought she had a good place chance at least if it deteriorated despite Smullen on the other Weld horse.
Report silvergreaser September 15, 2013 12:02 PM BST
Its stopped raining with the skies looking slightly brighter.

Unless it literally pours out of the heavens from now until the race I can't see the ground been any worse than good pa.

I can see a huge improvement from Ernest and maybe Red Cadeaux might come back to his best but when myself and workrider agree its usually the kiss of death.

Right I'm off to watch my young lad play in the junior final against our arch rivals.

Really fine card with a few AOB shorties. Just the one strong fancy today ,Sudirman, already a Group 1 winner and the step up in trip will suit. Was the first horse off the bridle last time but still won well. Hannons horse making the market but hard to know why its so short.

Report dj876 September 15, 2013 1:17 PM BST
One that I thought was interesting  was On the Way Out (11.0) in the handicap chase.A versatile and tough sort who has won on most grounds.
Although he is a 10 yo,he is a relatively unexposed over fences and is now back down to the mark that he was third off in a hot handicap at leopardstown at Christmas(finishing ahead of his Galway plate winning stablemate but no doubt CL was having a quiet one.
He should improve from his seasonal debut at Killarney and eyecatching that Paul Townnend   now takes over (won a Galway hurdle for stable on Indian Pace).
Stable is in decent form with 4 of the last 20 runners obliging.

Orfevre was really impressive today as was Treve,i,d find it hard to pick between the two(betting now say the same) Orfevre tanked up in a canter,Treve beat a better field,made up a lot of ground with good speed to win snugly in the end.

WD Pa, Chris Hayes said after that she loved the softer ground that they encountered when they turned in so that was probably a big part of it. Hope they don't go to Melbourne as the race is stop-start lottery-type thing that I'm not sure would suit her plus the ground is lightning. The Cadran or Ascot must surely be next, might be a Gold Cup horse next season.

That Hannon horse is a beast, Arakan is some sire, started off with only 15 mares in 09.

Sil, you should drop the AOB stuff, there is a bit of Stepford Wives vibe about them no doubt, but their politeness is genuine and pretty endearing I think. AOB is the most modest top sports personality I've ever come accross. No point speculating about what goes on behind closed doors, we'll never know....
