Thank you Jac for showing your great sense of humour again
The trainer is indeed not too small of a factor, so I don’t quite understand why he isn’t taken into consideration more
Anyway I’m quite biased from Germany, as here those kind of “loser” trainers like him never win a bigger one, let alone a Classic..
Tom Marquand has named Domino Darling in his 5 to follow but not Born with Pride who he rode on debut.. Hope she hasn’t lost a leg.
Jason Watson is a very good upcoming jockey but a lot of pressure on his shoulders for one so inexperienced
I’d have gone with Rossa Ryan…
Love looks streets ahead of anything else and if she stays will win easily. Not so sure she will stay though. She scooted away too quickly in the Guineas and I can see her dropping back to 10f after the oaks. Can see her being another minding or winter running up a sequence but at 8 and 10f. She may still win the oaks but Aiden May well have other contenders too. Hard to judge quadrilateral. If she wasn’t fav last time you’d say it was a good oaks trial but thought she would have gone past the second. This season is going to be so hard with the truncated season.
