fanshawes horse in this race was very tenderly ridden by urbina and no effort was made to finish in the first three <br>should have been banned in my opinion both horse and jockeyMay 17, 2007 at 17:15 #60094racinggirlukMember

I was at Salisbury this afternoon, I found nothing wrong with Oscars ride of this horse….. the horse like most Montjeu bred are a little fractious and highly strung and take awhile for them to find there racing feet…..this was the horses 2nd start…she is a big backwards kind, so a few races under her feet will do her the better…
And this is the offical explanation:<br> prominent, ridden and chased leaders over 1f out, kept on final furlong … there is nothing untoward in thatMay 17, 2007 at 17:52 #60095ChubsMember

Indeed it is, Chubs. So I’ll take this opportunity to voice my difference of opinion with you on this occasion. I’m with Racing Gurll on this one — I genuinely saw nothing ontoward with the ride given to Ommadawn. Ribena if anything was most professional in his riding, I thought.
Racing Girl, do you get the impression that Montjeu’s seem to like a little cut in the ground?May 17, 2007 at 19:20 #60097Lovely LadyMember

If I’d backed it e.w. I’d be very annoyed. He did nothing final furlong.May 17, 2007 at 19:35 #60098
But that’s merely an indication of how poor a jockey Oscar Urbina is, Lovely Lady, nothing more.
Anyone who backs a horse he’s on deserves everything they get :biggrin:May 17, 2007 at 21:54 #60099quixallcrossettParticipant

In support of Oscar, I though he rode Soviet Song really well, and understood her better than anyone.May 17, 2007 at 23:34 #60100
Soviet Song was an extremely promising two-year-old, but she never really faced ‘true milers’ until she turned three. Consequently, Urbina’s job was made far easier on his first three outings on her.
When she cape up against the best of her generation, in what was an exceptional 1000 Guineas, Urbina was completely shown up. James Fanshawe had stated she may have needed a little more time, but she was never given a chance in the race.
Murtagh, for me, knew her inside out and it was no surprise Oscar was overlooked after the first time JM sat on her.May 18, 2007 at 08:51 #60101davidjohnsonMember

I’m no Urbina fan, but let’s no rewrite history. She had every chance in the 1000 Guineas and just wasn’t good enough on the day.
RP report ‘The Fillies’ Mile winner Soviet Song travelled strongly, held up towards the outside, and came through to look a possible winner before her effort flattened out a little up the hill. Her stable has yet to get into top gear, and she may well be capable of a bit better.’
Timeform Perspective, ‘, unbeaten in 3 starts as a juvenile, culminating with a success in the Fillies <br>Mile, showed she’s trained on well but didn’t appear to have any excuses on the day, save possibly just needing the outing; patiently ridden, she improved <br>smoothly to hold every chance in the final 2f but couldn’t quite sustain her effort after looking as though she’d probably get close to the third at one point; she’s far from sure to stay beyond 1m and has raced on good ground or softer since making an impressive winning debut on good to firm.’ <br> <br>May 18, 2007 at 10:04 #60102Irish StampMember

She was up against the three best fillies of the past 10 years – it’s kind of hard to win against horses like that.<br>May 18, 2007 at 17:12 #60103
We’ll have to agree to differ on her Guineas run then :biggrin:
