    Cracksman, Poet’s Word, Masar, Saxon Warrior. All of whom could be sent of as favourite. It just seems a bit of an overreaction to me. Maybe it’s because he seems 100% to turn up and the opposition has yet to be nailed down.

    There is a case to be argued that Defoe probably would have won today if connections had of gone for it. I assume the lively surface was too much of a worry for them?

    Oh well, I got a 2/1-6/1 double with Crystal Ocean and Shang Shang Shang but would have had a small treble, and a separate big treble, had Chelsea Cloisters won (at 6/1).

    That treble would have paid 147/1 :negative:

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Too right, Charles. Right decision not to run. Although Defoe has run well enough on good-firm, today’s surface would be taking a big chance of injury. Has a very rounded action and at best with give underfoot.

    value is everything

    I shoved Crystal Ocean in a treble with two Wesley Ward fillies.

    With Crystal Ocean winning after Shang Shang Shang successful I thought you’d been unlucky, Steve. Am glad you decided to have some doubles too. :good:

    A very weak renewal and the form to be treated with caution.
