Like I said on the Kicking King thread, the ground IMO wasn’t safe for the King George last year but it’s not an issue with Star De Mohaison as it was very soft when he beat The Listener.
I’m also in the pessimistic camp when it comes to Star De Mohaison first of all returning to the track and then retaining his ability.
Yes, he’s obviously got age on his side but like John Francome said recently, he was once told that as soon as your horse gets a tendon injury, you get rid of it as it ain’t coming back…..
It may well have happened on plenty of occasions over the years but can anyone name any examples of top-class horses who suffered tendon injuries, but then returned to win big races?
Connections must be wishing that they’d run S De M in the Hennessy now and I was just thinking the other day how lucky I was to still have all of my 10-to-follow horses fit & well but this throws that out of the window now:biggrin:
