4 year old Lohnro mare Jestajingle has proven herself an incredibly adaptable galloper coming out and running second on debut at a mile, dropping back to 1200m and then winning at 1000m leading all the way. This preparation she resumed over 1000m, settled back in the field and savaged the line. Drawn barrier 3 here she can sit closer to the speed for Hall and prove the one to beat. Invincible Warrior is an undefeated 3 year old taking on the older horses and can definitely measure up. Debut win on speed was strong holding off Faerie Whisper who ran second at her next start and Miss Somebody who broke her maiden at Northam on Thursday in a sizzling 56 seconds. Should get a lovely tow into the race from the inside gate behind likely leader Greco who I think can run a race at odds. Tongue Tie goes on after being stranded 4 wide throughout in midweek grade. Looks a horse who will love the short, sharp Ascot circuit and is one to include at odds.

mostly from horses that led and weakened over shorter distances, and then stepped up in distance, and of course they normally lead again, but at a much more relaxed tempopeople are so good at misconstruing that.they tend to think if you weaken at shorter it's ...

Carey, Your comment above took me a long time to learn theoretically. And then it happened a few times with horses I owned. Obviously it is not a rule but I reckon you are spot on.One of the biggest misconceptions in horse racing.

when i cared, there were numerous factors to do with pace and positioning.but basically handy is best at any track over any distance, in any type of race.statistics prove it is so.which is why i reckon pike's record would be better if he was allowed to ride th...

Ok. thanks for responding. I tend to only want to back the fillies and colts at WFA or middle distances when they go forward. I heard Craig Williams saying this morning that he expected Yankee Rose to go back in the CP because when she went forward she failed ...

i have no idea what it would have done on the dry.i didn't think it could win before the race, and the fact that it ended up heavy means that i may have been right in the dry, but we will never know.delicay might not have done as well either.it was only an 180...

@Carey Do you think Perfect Reflection would have beaten Delicacy home on a dry track if they were in the same position as they were on that track? The intention was always to go back before the rain arrived on race day.

and in that race(KT) the pace was massive, where leaders had buckleys and none.how much did you win on that rodent? I tend to think tempo is less important when the track is in the heavy range-it becomes more about finding the better ground and building mom...

Never known a horse like Flytego.As soon as he gets to Ascot he puts in.To the naked eye I thought he had run 2nd and was raging once they put the numbers up on Sky.Thankfully he got on the podium, just..
