The Racing Post gave Alpha Centauri 122 for her performance today. That was an increase of 8 lbs on her Irish 1000 Guineas.
That mark is 1 lb higher than Without Parole earned in the St James Palace Stakes. To be fair to the Gosden colt he lost a shoe in his race and with Stradivarius also losing a shoe in the Gold Cup, perhaps Gosden will need to invest in some velcro shoes as back up.
The rating awarded to Billesdon Brook today suggests she has run a stone behind her Guineas win but there was some speculation that the 66/1 Classic winner may have fluked her Guineas win.
It seems that precipitation may be Alpha Centauri’s greatest opponent in the immediate future.
Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.
