    Trainers are creatures of habit and I was rather hoping to hear Gosden say he would run him in the Solario, like he did with Kingman and Too Darn Hot. But he seemed to pour cold water on that idea, which makes me worry about how far up the pecking order he is. But, as said, he is certainly bred to be good.

    He was very impressive and one I’m interested in going forward

    Can see the race he won producing plenty of winners as the first 5 home all have top breeding

    I’d be surprised if there wasn’t a couple of future group winners in there

    The question is can we trust gosden to get one ready for a guineas these days

    Not forgetting Bradsell, Desert Hero and Holloway Boy. Mind you, Desert Hero looks more of a Derby candidate.

    I told myself to hold off on guineas bets but iv watched this highbank race 3 times now and I’m getting close to pulling the trigger at 20/1

    Could be a wise move FinalFurlong91.

    Highbank’s last 3 furlongs were ran in 33.55 seconds … pretty darn fast considering he won rather cosily. His finish was faster than all races/sprints on the same card.

    Mega-impressive he was and cannot wait to see him again. Best Charlie Appleby 2YO this year by a mile in my opinion.

    “LBB is out of a dam who stayed 10f so little or no doubt he will stay a mile.”

    Not necessarily. Ten Sovereigns was out of a dam who stayed 10f as well.

    Is there a commonwealth cup market yet?

    Iv still seen nothing to suggest he’s not very fast and will end up a sprinter after being a beaten fav in the guineas

    Ten sovereigns esque

    “I’ve taken the 100/7 about Little Big Bear”

    One of my better contributions (admittedly amid less than stiff competition).

    Hills have him 6/1 to win the commonwealth cup

    Much rather take that myself than 5/1 for the guineas
