    Ouija Board I’m sure is near the top of most people’s lists.

    Mandesha as a 3 year old over 1m2f was something special, but having lost her way as a 4 year old is probably not remembered as being that special.

    Alexander Goldrun I feel was also under-rated, and unlucky to be around at the same time as Ouija Board. The acceleration AG possessed was crazy, perhaps just wasn’t the battler OB was.

    Midway Lady,dual classic winner and underrated.

    At the time worked with someone whos brother worked in Ben Hanbury’s stable.Received many a whisper but heard about her long before her racecourse debut("best horse ever in the stables") and steamed in on her first run.Her only career defeat but I got my money back and more thereafter.

    Rose Bowl and Bosra Sham were other favourites.

    I loved those two greys, Petite Etoile and Indian Skimmer – poetry in motion.

    The beefy Park Top and Ouija Board are two others worth mentioning.

    Balanchine
    Bosra Shan
    User Friendly- does anyone remember listening to the St Leger on radio 5? will never forget Peter Bromley calling her home, in a shouting husky voice "Here comes the filly", its amazing what the old grey matter remembers.

    Peeping Fawn may be as good as many mentioned above.

    Whilst not of the very top echelon…Petrushka and Imagine were particular favourites.
