Spot on CR,it happened a few times last year, my own view if it was so unfit it shouldn't be allowed run,the horse is certainly not running on it's merits,action should be taken against AOB for using the racecourse as a training ground but of course that won't happen. Fair to say an awful lot of trainers leave a bit to "work on" but that is a different level.

They've likely shown something at a stage to have the reps they have, Steinbeck has done good things in Hong Kong and the likes of St Nicholas Abbey and Fame & Glory have both come back after looking finished so I wouldn't write either off. Might even get reasonable prices about them now.

^^^^^ you'd be right and having just seen the tape, I thought OMR looked a big threat for a long way, JFK never so. Watch the way Joseph rode SNA and Camelot in the Racing Post Trophy, went through the race in a similar manner on OMR to about 4 out.

There is likely a day in at least one of those horses, I'd be 90% sure they've both ragdolled a lead gelding at home that would probably win most of the Group 3s run in Ireland this year.

I am not sure you're comparing apples with apples here lads.

St.Nicholas's abbey disappointing 3YO return was to be beaten on seasonal debuts in the Guineas by 3.5 lengths over 1 mile (obviously) on good to firm ground. Disappointing with the hype that surrounded him and what he done subsequently but not that bad a run really on firm ground over a mile on seasonal debut

Is it a fair comparison to draw an analogy between that and JFK/Ol man river getting absolutely hammered on their second runs of the season in the dante? Some mitigation for OMR for how he traveled maybe.

Kingsbarns would be a recent example of one that didn't really show again albeit he completely missed his early 3 yo engagements.

Rumplestiltskin didnt transfer her 2yo form to her Classic year. She did onlt have the one run, but one would think the 'boys' seen enough at home and in that run to know she hadn't trained on.

Maybe JFK would benefit from the snip, but this wont happen, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if the concoct an 'injury' and retire him.

Yeah Kingsbarns is much a better example, though I was addressing whether OMR ever looked a threat in the race but couldn't really mask my true feeling that I think they both could still be very good, was just pointing out that Joseph always rode the 2 horses he is most readily associated with from behind travelling kindly like OMR did.

I can't think of one re the two blow-outs which is a bad sign I must admit.

I find with O'Brien, for all of the piss taking we give him re a new superstar every year, when he says one is very good, they tend to be by and large.

St Nick and F&G came back from bad runs as older horses. He also turned Haradusun and Starspangledbanner inside out from their first runs, but none are like the two above I'd have to say.

Is the nearest we've seen to the above One Cool Cat, he turned him around to an extent. Got George Washington back for a QEII as well.

Indeed we were DJ, One Cool Cat took a right few quid off a few in my year, myself included. Dubawi as well, you'd think we'd learn. Think that turned a few even more to the jumps!

On temperament, you'd hear stories about **** and how tough he could be as time went on, he missed a lot as well and had a propensity to run like a shopping cart.

I think it is underestimated what a fast horse Rip was when he was right like in the Sussex, he had foot problems as we know. Wouldn't surprise to see his show plenty of speed. Galileo has gotten maybe the fastest horse ever and others like New approach were Guineas placed! Father Frost is in at Navan on Sunday, has some massive entries (snap). I remember lads on the bloodstock forum saying Rip had a very lengthy, middle-distance look to him when they went to see him. Like a horse that wins first time up in Ireland, Fluff (1st go) and kissed by angels have looked great to me, former with no experience; their fillies look good to me this season.

Bit early yet I guess, but I'd like to see something from Canford by high summer at the latest. You'd imagine he has about two good books and won't have gotten near the real classy 1m + mares.

Kissed by angels was very impressive during the week,she was well punted at Limerick on her debut run behind a Wachman/Jp filly with good 2 yo form.

I couldn't believe my eyes when Lucida was reeled in by Wachman's at Newmarket. Saw the Irish 1000 is Boccas main target as well according to Harrington. Pleascach looked monstrous to me the other night. Bolger is probably as well to go Ascot to Irish Oaks rather than rush her. Kissed By Angels was talked of by the books in terms of Oaks at Epsom, she looked really fast to me, more Irish 1000. Owners have the Guineas winner for either as well, interesting to see where they slot in but I'd rather step up Wachman's to 12f.

One thing on Lucida, she was seriously well backed n the weeks leading up, raced like she was cherry-ripe and had a real hard time, wonder was that the best we'll see of her for a bit? and I'm a fan.

It would be nice to know for certain what Coolmore will run in the Epsom Oaks,can't see them not winning it.

I'd agree with you about Legatissimo,she wasn't stopping over 10 F on soft ground by any means. I would be tempted by the 4/1 with PP but the ownership and my faith in Wachman would temper any of that enthusiasm (even though he does relatively well with fillies)

Oh jeez yeah, Jan Vermeer, Christ I don't know has anyone ever admitted backing that horse;

I wonder was Giovanni maybe a later in the year/leger horse that has been pushed to the forefront but the work reports are good. Pat Keane said that Order of St George was supposed to be going very well before the Derrinstown, I've never taken to him, though.

Wachman can be a little paint-by-numbers for me as well, competent and with a nice CV, but wouldn't know what he was looking at in the way of a Weld/O'Brien.
