    Sagaro Stakes runner up Quickthorn must go well here, I feel.

    Is this the 2m race? Remember going to this card back in 2018 when the Frankel horse Weekender was favourite for the 2m race

    Enemy should’ve won last time out

    Got stuck behind a wall of horses then when the gap appeared the jockey on Princess zoe made sure he shut it just as buick was going for the gap

    Have had a few quid on enemy

    If he continues on his upwards trajectory this looks very winnable

    “Sagaro Stakes runner up Quickthorn must go well here, I feel.”

    Cracking ride from Tom Marquand, judged the pace really well.

    Shocking rides from some in behind – they really weren’t going THAT fast.

    Farce of a race that

    Enemy never given any chance whatsoever

    He made up plenty of ground quite quickly but the energy used to do so meant he didn’t get the trip

    Held up 15 lengths off the pace with the winner getting an uncontested lead

    You could see what was gonna happen miles out

    Six seconds slower than standard. Not surprising that the prominent racers stayed there.

    Then you have Danny Tudhope sitting there motionless miles behind turning for home

    Given connections and the fact he Drifted from 3.7 to 5.7 maybe today wasn’t the day and they are eyeing up a big handicap at some point

    “Wd if you were on the winner.”

    Thank you – I’d be the first to admit my horse had the run of the race.

    You could see from the rolling clock and the speedometer that they really weren’t going that quick and Marquand actually slowed it down turning for home (and they all just sat there and let him do it, not making a millimetre of headway), before kicking on 3f out.
