Grimes, easnt Percussionist fourth in the derby, not second? thats just off the top of my head though.

Agree with DB about Perce Rock, under a better ride from McCoy (that wasnt his best) i think he would have beaten silverburn. Pedigree aside, Perce Rock is certain to stay at least 2 1/2miles, everything about him suggests he is a real tough horse too.

My question is would he have the gears to match Aran Concerto? If it comes down the battle Perce Rock would get the better of him i think. im not sure if you saw Perce Rock’s first bumper (before JP bought him) the ground was almost unraceable and he quickend like the race was being run on fast ground.

I honestly think this horse comes into the ‘machine’ range of my ratings!
