yeah great performance from purple moon! although it makes me wonder why jamie spencer is always on luca cumani’s top horses! nicky mackay seems to be 2nd best!
and yes i know jamie spencer in most people’s eyes is a better jockey but you would think he would be given a chance eh
nicky is my favourite! he’s strong in a finish and stylish but i suppose everybody has their opinions.
getting worried for him though about luca putting jamie spencer on all the decent ones
Spencer was different class today – but there are days like today for him, and there are days like a day he had about a week ago when he rode 4 or 5 hot fav’s, including a long odds on shot, and give the horses the worst rides I have ever seen.
That’s Spencer for you though, sometimes brilliant, sometimes very ordinary – I just feel his cockeyness will catch him out someday. And if you want to look further into what I have just said, just ask yourself how many times did Spencer ride a front runner for AOB?
Spencer was fantastic on Sir Gerry. Greater credit though goes to Oscar Urbina who held him up off a slow pace at Newmarket last time, tactics which meant we got to back him at 9/2 yesterday instead of 7/4.
