    I see the Budapest bullet won under dettori the other day, one of my favourites but i missed it lol think this horse could be very good, has brutal early speed as it showed at royal Ascot, think it should race more in england next flat season as it could win a good few sprint races.
    What are your thoughts??

    Probably not quite the force of old, but it was wonderful to hear that he’d won again. If darren is reading this perhaps he can tell us his thoughts?

    Thanks alot for the link, first time I’ve seen the race, quite a close finish, still impressed by the horse maybe not the force of old, but still pretty good :)

    I’d say they got Frankie to thank for what looked like a really good controlled ride

    He would have probably beaten that lot by half a furlong in his prime.

    Sad we never got to see the best of him at Ascot.

    I think Ascot was his true showing, the horse is clearly a sub standard Listed performer slash handicapper in Britain which puts into perspective the lack of genetically talented throughbreds around Europe hosting Group races that they shouldn’t be within 50 miles of.

    Fairly ill informed comment on European thoroghbreds in general and Overdose in particular. He is actually English bred and whilst some way below his best now, was no handicapper/listed in his prime. His exploits across central Europe brought excitement and interest to the racing game which seem beyond some minds to grasp.
    Whereabouts in the town of Cheltenham do you work …by the way?
