    Siskin 10/1

    Got a £10 free bet to chuck away and came down on this

    If we get good ground at goodwood then I expect him to win and hope that this will be his main target for the end of the season

    He seems to be very ground dependent as cut blunts his blistering turn of foot

    So avoiding the autumn European ground and aiming for the quick ground and sharp mile in a breeders cup just seems logical

    And with the owner winning this with expert eye in 2018 theres hope it may happen

    4 year olds only have to give 3 pounds to the 3 year olds in this race so its hard to see siskin reversing the form for this race, for me

    Depends how much Siskin improves between then and now I guess

    Youd fancy either of them against pinatubo or the American horses

    Exactly. If Circus Maximus gets a better draw and witchita can pull him to the two furlong pole then he’ll be hard to catch.lope y Fernandez I think over a sharp mile will be thereabouts and I suspect Kameko will be the best of the three year olds. Remember romanised too and we could have the best mile race this century.

    I hope they send Wichita. On the sharp track will take some stopping.

    Itching to back Kameko! Arh! I really couldn’t be more than 50/50 on whether he goes or not though. I’m sure AB really wants him at Ascot.

    Really frustrating news about Pinatubo, annoyed at Godolphin for not taking him to America. Bad for the sport not to, presumably based purely on breeding financial risk/reward. Big shame. Can’t really blame them if that’s the case just tough to take for racing fans

    He is in quarantine in Australia being aimed at a couple of races down there Mickeyjp

    Wichita fractured his right hind leg whilst doing some trackwork in Aus and needs surgery, so I wouldnt be surprised if he gets retired.

    Kameko 5/1

    Kameko is heading here after being ruled out of the QE11 because of the ground. 5/1 hills best price.

    Siskin is being trained for this

    But

    “It has been lovely ground at Keeneland, but I got a video through yesterday of torrential rain. I worked in Keeneland so I’ll have to touch base. I wouldn’t like to see him over there on soft ground,” said Lyons.

    Could be a massive negative for both him and kameko

    Not necessarily relevant to this specific post but not sure where else to put it (not a retirement as such).

    Wichita sadly passed away after complications with his surgery to fix his latest injury.

    Terrible sad news. Tough horse who was hard to beat on good ground. Not a good start to the week.
