What follows might be blather, but I think there might be something in it.

First, I don’t think the notion of stable form is all illusion. When horses are in form they can bring each other on more on the gallops.

It’s often noticeable that when a stable has one good juvenile it will often have several, Jim Bolger’s being a case in point from this season, Kevin Ryan’s from last season.

I think the bigger stables have an advantage in that they can stage a little bit more gentle competition of the appropriate level for each horse on the home gallops, which helps to bring out the best in all of them.
