    Not that easy TBB, 2 got it wrong. Thought the "first and foremost a punter" might have foxed one or two.

    Well done anyway, your turn :lol:

    In truth, it was its verbatim googlability that gave it away.

    Cirrus Des Aigles’ trainer Corinne Barande-Barbe owned a 1980s winner of the Prix Morny. Which one and which classic winner finished third, and who owned it.

    ^I don’t think it was your turn yet :) but as no answer to earlier one I’ll try this one too:

    Deep Roots

    Ma Biche = Maktoum al Maktoum [or Mrs Ghislaine Head owned it as 2 year old if that’s what you want]

    Oops, just re-read the title and hadn’t realised the procedure!

    Correct though, 1982 and Ma Biche carried the Beige and Black Head colours.

    ..oh thank you.

    Name the colt who ran unplaced in Troy’s Derby [1979] whose mother was once officially rated superior to both Mill Reef and Brigadier Gerard.

    My guess would be

    Man Of Vision

    (Owned by Jerry Sung, Trained by Michael Jarvis, ridden by Bruce Raymond) – finished 7th to Troy.

    His dam was

    Cawston’s Pride

    winner of the Queen Mary, Molecomb and Lowther prior to the Brigadier stepping up to the equivalent of Group 1 company in 1970 Middle Park, and during the period when Mill Reef was beaten by My Swallow in the Papin. She ended up champion 2-y-o filly, unbeaten in 7 races. She was trained by Freddie Maxwell and owned by L B Hall. At stud she produced Cawston’s Clown and Solinus to win the Coventry Stakes, the last named also going on to becoming a Champion Sprinter.

    Man Of Vision’s best perfromance came in the 1979 King Edward VII at Royal Ascot when runner up to Ela Mana Mou.

    …almost spot on Ivanjica and I really didn’t think anyone would be bothered with that one, so that’s a big :shock: from me… :) and well done,…I’m really impressed…

    just a minor correction, she won 8 races as a 2yo…

    I was very upset when Man of Vision, one of my favourite horses, was shipped to Japan after the King Edward VII – seemingly never to be seen or heard of again…. :(

    now it’s your turn :)
