    Ok that makes sense, in fact when it’s analysed like that you could say Ryan on TS helped set it up for Magna Grecia by slowing the pace of the centre group a bit! It doesn’t explain Kick On though? We were all hoping he would go on, could he have injected a bit more pace? If he didn’t because he thought shine so bright was going too quick then ultimately that is jockey error? Maybe that’s a bit harsh but ideally you would think that he’d want Kick On ahead of Magna Grecia no? At half way he’s about 1.5L behind him. Do you think Oisin looks back at it today and thinks he’d do something different? Or maybe he was doing it on purpose as I think they said they were using it partly as a trial for the French Derby? It’s still a big coincidence that a 66/1 no hoper came second drawn on that side by the way, but coincidences happen! Magna Grecia On this analysis should be nailed on for the Irish 2000 you’d think no? Surely they’ll run pacemakers this time

    True

    We were all hoping he would go on, could he have injected a bit more pace?

    Yes

    If he didn’t because he thought shine so bright was going too quick then ultimately that is jockey error?

    Yes

    Maybe that’s a bit harsh but ideally you would think that he’d want Kick On ahead of Magna Grecia no?

    Yes

    At half way he’s about 1.5L behind him. Do you think Oisin looks back at it today and thinks he’d do something different?

    Yes

    …Or maybe “probably” would be more acurate than “yes” to all. Things happen to change plans. I backed Kick On expecting him to be the leader, but tbh he (the horse) got a bit up tight beforehand and Oisin may have thought Kick On might overdo it if in front.

    Although to be fair Kick On didn’t show enough to suggest he’d have been close even if things went ideally.

    Only my opinion, Frenchy; I could be wrong.

    Well, that’s a pity and I don’t quite understand this.
    His photo was accepted beforehand, so why shouldn’t it go now?
    Best of luck for the final, they really deserve this title, as for me they are the British version of the BVB at better days (which of course is a wild interpretation) :good:

    Perhaps David or Matron could throw some light on this for us Nathan.
    Fatal error sounds a bit sinister :wacko:
