just one appearance on ground with "soft" in going description, and 7th of 7 that day. Surely tonight is the mountain of all mountains to climb?? 7/1 is tooooooooo short for even the eternal optimist

Aidan is a genius dessie but to win that race on sloppy with a european jockey is asking a lot.

Love to see it but at 6 i wouldnt be backing him.

He was very impressive last time { probably too impressive to believe the form tbh } but the fact he does not have an american based rider swings it.

No bet for me.

Sad news about Fergie btw.
From experience its unlikely to be a positive outcome from that affliction.

Yes OD, very sad. Let's hope the weight of prayers for him is answered from up above with a satisfactory recovery.

I don't but I do believe 66/1 shots can win the guineas!

Apparently sitting up in bed with a good recovery to follow.

He must have swallowed some kickback pecker but he's fine again, it seems he'll be back for the Classic!

No-one rules the world of international racing like the our Dermot, shure wasn't he winning Belmont Stakes with Go And Go when Aidan was a lad (1990). I'd love to say he won on a sloppy track but no.

When it comes to the really big, hyped events the yanks will yield to no-one and I enjoy reading the European pundits moaning about American jockeys, bullyboy tactics, the gate, the going (as if we are cursed with desertification), medicaid and the roar of 157,000 depraved Kentuckians.

After you, sir, No, no, after you!

Grin  I think pecker might have meant Alex was sitting up in bed RA.
