    the man who made this unlikely champion sprinter elect what he is. In hindsight, any horse that showed himself able to be competitive off a mark of 90 for the master of Cockerham was a champion sprinter in waiting.:biggrin:

    A fitting testimony to the dearth of talent in the sprint Division. Wasn’t even number one choice in the Ryan stable let alone Europe!<br>Top UK h’cappers are indistinguishable from supposed Group horses. As for the French they hardle enter their own Championship race and haven’t for several years.<br>Of the other "champions elect".<br>Les Arcs- beaten in Japan today- I remember it going round extended distances on the sand at my local track for R Guest<br>Reverence- ex crock mudlark, gelded and on its third trainer

    A motley crew.

    I think he smashed the track record at an all-weather track a while back. Must have a look.

    Yes, a couple of years ago, he broke the track record for 6 furlongs at Lingfield, which had stood for 9 years. Nick Mordin enthused about it but rated it a Group 3 time. And there was a suspicion that he needed 7f!
