    Thoughts on (the monster) Ghaiyyath for this race? I am massive fan and was very confident for the Coronation Cup.

    However I am a believer that he needs a long break between runs. Is 4 weeks too short?

    Trainer reckons he no longer needs long breaks. We shall see at the weekend.

    Couldn’t back him myself, il believe he can back up one big run with another when I see it

    If he does then I think he will take all the beating

    Though I see magic wand in there, guess she is in there to try to spoil ghaiyyaths race and set it up for japan

    Regal Reality ran very well in this last year, and was solid at Ascot too.

    I think that 25’s is big on that basis, and though near impossible to see him win, I’d be happy with third.

    Strad was way undercooked for the CC, bad race, ghaiyaath has beaten nothing in any of his “impressive wins” bar his last which im definitely putting a line through

    Will be having a massive lay against him and will dabble with a place lay also, way overrated for me

    Lord north will be interesting as i cannot see him running to 124, i may be wrong but his profile does not merit him actually achieveint that rating.

    Japans over too short a trip but who knows, strangers things have happened.

    If enables fully cooked and she actually turns up ill have her down as virtually unbeatable, odds against i cant see how i wont be unloading after decs

    Will be interesting to see the ratings after the race if she does what i think she might to this largely overrated field, hopefully the 8 stand

    Race of the weekend coz of the standard, and one that is looking a ‘no bet’ race for me.

    Enable – will she need the run and is she as good as she was?
    Ghaiyaath – can he back up the last win?
    Japan – can he improve enough from his first run, over this trip, against this opposition?
    Lord North – can he step up again?

    Anything can happen. :mail:

    Yes we have the King George winner and arc 2nd, the prince of Wales winner, the coronation cup winner and the juddmonte winner all going at it

    Sit back and enjoy without a bet I’m thinking

    Unless Enable drifts to a more backable price that is

    Ghaiyyath for me also kris-kin and condfident this is his year and he will not need that long lay-off between races. Still has Enable to beat but she may possibly need her race.
    Ghaiyyath to make all. :bye: Jac

    I didn’t give Ghaiyyath a chance in the Arc but at this distance and on a fast track I like him here over Enable. If Enable turns up fit and ageless then Ghaiyyath probably finishes second but when do you bet against Enable if not now?

    Deirdre will also be a key horse in my exotics.

    when has a fully fit ENABLE (ie no training hold ups/niggles) ever really needed a run – she is simply the best horse in race and will win – all the talk about the rest is irrelevent as they arent in same league. having said all that i dont back anything at odds on so i wont be having a bet just be watching and admiring.
