Great post Trackside.<br>Agree with your observation that Peslier’s decision to race alot closer to the pace than he did at Newmarket was a wise one.<br>It wasn’t as apparent prior to the 2000 but looking back on all the races at the Curragh today no horse won coming from well off the pace. No horse won by leading all the way either for that matter.<br>Anyway great stuff trackside.

there was no hob nobbing, no name dropping and you didnt call anyone a "b*****d
" unlike that young chap in Paris the other year. Jackass was it? I wasnt a member then…<br>Very good indeed, I drifted off a bit during that last <br>piece but you really got your point accross.<br>Can we look forward to more of the same?
