Another that caught the eye in a good way was Roseman. I think this years Hampton Court will be well worth watching for the future. Rounding the bend he looked like he could be tailed off. Then at the 1f pole he started to motor. He only started racing in April, so it’s possible he was still green? Given he started out in April + had the ability to get within 2.5Ls of King Of Comedy at Sandown suggests there’s plenty of potential there. Might be a slow burner but i wouldn’t be surprised if Varian made him into a very decent horse.
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!
Looking at Pinatubo’s breeding and finishing effort you would think he has a good chance of staying. Off putting factor for me, for next year, is how butty and muscled up he looked behind the saddle in the parade ring. No wonder he could power away from more unfurnished youngsters on the day but I would think there could be more potential for improvement in a lankier type to go past him next year.
Still, the time and style he did it in mean there are plenty worse bets.
