    If it’s max bet material, you’d be betting again surely regardless!?

    Tilsit may be the one for 2nd place I wouldn’t bank on Kameko making the top 2 here though he may end up a distant 2nd. I would imagine Kameko will probably finish 4th today at a guess. No need to guess about today’s winner however.

    That result was ok I still come out of the race in a profit. I wonder if the last 2f being good to soft did benbatl.

    Murphy getting a bit carried away here. “No other 3yo miler in history could have given 5lb to Benbatl”.

    Perhaps a bit emotional getting a bit of Goodwood redemption.

    Didn’t look a great performance. Still not convinced Kameko likes ground like that. Hard to know whether the performance was more due to the weight or the ground.

    Either way, it’s almost going to be impossible to have confidence in him for the QEII. Hopefully he’ll go away for the season now and come back next year.

    Benbatl ran like a 6 year old that’s been off the track for a year. How many 6 year olds come back from 12 months off and win a Grp2. Was always going to be a question mark, rather than just saying he did it last year so ok to do it again.

    Regal Reality’s closeness on that ground probably says Benbatl ran well below his best.

    It was a very good performance. You cant expect to beat a 125 horse going away by miles with a penalty on ground that wasn’t his optimum.

    I’m pretty confident Kameko has better form than Palace Pier now, and look forward to backing him at a nice price in the QE2.

    Kameko looks slightly tripless to me

    He was scrubbed along quite a way out today seeming slightly tapped for tow before running on to win

    But then doesn’t stay 10f

    Not sure Benbatl was at his best today, think over a mile he needs to make it a real stamina test as he doesnt have the speed

    Kameko got past him fairly easily but benbatl kept plugging on, think frankie maybe shouldve gone a bit harder in the first half of the race

    Don’t think I saw a threat to palace pier there myself

    Can’t agree with you. Last four times over a mile he’s won three of them, including two G1s, and one G2 giving a 5lb penalty away to a horse rated 125. The only one he lost was a vintage Sussex, where he didn’t get a run.

    Kemeko is a top miler.

    Wasnt hes not a good horse

    Just think palace pier is something special and will hopefully prove himself the best miler since kingman in a few weeks time

    I’d fancy Kameko, but I was more disagreeing with your point Kameko was ‘tripless’. A top miler on form.
