    I’m just not having it that Cyrname is anywhere near Altior’s standard. I think the handicapper massively overreacted to his Ascot Chase win as did the racing public. Similar to Waiting Patiently the previous year who I’ve never been convinced is the world beater he was touted to be after his Ascot Chase win.

    The only thing that will get Altior beat is if he doesn’t see it out, which I’m sure he will. I’d also be weary of it turning into a tactical affair, but Altior’s class should see him right.

    If it was tactical surely that plays into altiors hands

    He has a ridiculous turn of foot

    The only chance cryname has is if he sets a relentless gallop and altior doesnt stay

    Cracking race with the winner cantering home at the highest possible speed ever seen on that kind of ground.
    I would hate to post a rating for him, but it would have be at around 185…

    Go on and have a laugh at that, but it was some performance.

    Dont think altior didnt stay, he stayed fine IMO, he doesnt seem to have that blast anymore that he used to i refused to believe it last season but he finally looks vulnerable, glad i sat that out as much as i thought hed win

    I think cyrnames ran a big rating there but not 176, 170 probably

    Yeah ruby, it wasnt 185 lol your assuming altior ran 180 there (his greatest ever race) which he 1000% absolutely no chance on this earth ran lol, altior probably ran 165 and cyrname 170

    I agree with that Ham but he’s been stepped up in trip too late in his career

    He’ll be back and win again,

    Ham, the times of the first three races at Ascot today were 35, 35 and 44 seconds too slow. Cyrname was only 11 seconds slower than the standard. This is massive on this ground. No way why he shouldn’t get anything over 180…..

    Yeah i agree mark, he absolutely will win again no doubting that

    Cyrname is still a one trick pony at this point until he does it somewhere else

    Doesnt matter ruby, cyrname did not run 180+ there and altior did not run his best ever performance rising 10 upped in trip

    That was a monster performance

    Visually altior ran to the level he was running to last year to me, cyrname just the better horse on the day

    Cyrname jumps great at pace. You have to give him credit there to have lowered Altior’s colours. Hendersons horse was coming back again near the end so will be interesting to see what they do next with him.

    I doubt Altior would have won over 2 miles today. That finishing kick just was not there. Difficult to see how they can go for the King George on the back of that – but if they do it will be a rare chance to back him at odds against.

    An odd race, with even Cyrname never showing the verve he did last season. Maybe they went too fast in the ground

    Well done Cyrname backers

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    Disappointed in Altior; jumped right constantly, which was probably worth the few lenghts at the end. Cyrname could be anything tho

    I’d say cyrname ran the kick out of altior cork all star

    Was a very good ride from cobden in a 2 runner race

    Cyrname is like a 2 and a half mile version of un de sceaux, slick jumper and relentless galloper who grinds his opponents into the dirt
