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 happenJuly 29, 2020 at 21:20 #1495639IstabraqParticipant

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 meJuly 29, 2020 at 21:28 #1495642
Depends how much Siskin improves between then and now I guess
Youd fancy either of them against pinatubo or the American horsesJuly 30, 2020 at 10:04 #1495691
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.October 9, 2020 at 16:47 #1505465October 9, 2020 at 20:31 #1505518
I hope they send Wichita. On the sharp track will take some stopping.October 9, 2020 at 23:32 #1505541Frenchy15Participant

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 fansOctober 10, 2020 at 08:03 #1505559botchy1Participant

He is in quarantine in Australia being aimed at a couple of races down there MickeyjpOctober 10, 2020 at 08:27 #1505561
Missed that. Ta.October 14, 2020 at 09:17 #1506017
Wichita fractured his right hind leg whilst doing some trackwork in Aus and needs surgery, so I wouldnt be surprised if he gets retired.October 14, 2020 at 14:21 #1506041Frenchy15Participant

Kameko is heading here after being ruled out of the QE11 because of the ground. 5/1 hills best price.October 21, 2020 at 16:03 #1506893
Siskin is being trained for this
“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 kamekoOctober 26, 2020 at 09:17 #1507386
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.October 26, 2020 at 12:32 #1507407
Terrible sad news. Tough horse who was hard to beat on good ground. Not a good start to the week.
