I am in the gloomy jeremiah camp. I agree the horse is young and has time on his side but one wonders why a horse so young has these problems in the first place. It is not as though he has had years of strain and work. One fears he has a fundamental weakness which will resolve in time so he can lead a normal life but perhaps not that of a top class racehorse.
My last 3 hurdlers have had tendon injuries and despite extended rest and in the last case stem cell therapy they have come back into work – tendon fine but then suspensory problems. They are now enjoying life as pampered hacks but no way can they recapture former ability on the racetrack.
Lets hope we jeremiahs are completely and utterly wrong.
