    Thanks FF, that is kind of a bottom line :whistle:
    so Haggas shouldn’t dare telling similar bull like Gosden did towards Calyx etc, but I hope and trust he wouldn’t :bye:

    Have to agree there Final Furlong :good:

    With regard to all the races at Royal Ascot that are getting lost in this
    Big Race Discussion Section don’t we usually have a direct link for Royal Ascot race discussions so that all the races are contained there and much easier to find.
    Just like the Cheltenham Section.

    I’m sure that happened last year.

    Hopefully Admin will get onto that for us :heart: Jac

    Sounds like a good idea

    I hope sea of class is fine because she will be one of the four cornerstones that prop up my ascot ante post multiples along with calyx, blue point and stradivarius

    By the way, I really like that you are playing pool in the stronghold of snooker where Mr. Trump just succeeded :yes:

    Mr Trump was fantastic Hein wasn’t he! Yes i play pool quite regularly, have done since i was 7! Our leagues finished for the summer now though, so i don’t have as many late nights :good:

    Yes Jack, he was even shown on German tv. Only downside with the snooker boom is that pool pros hardly can survive due to poor prize money, but you know that better than me; I only am a hobby player..

    To the race we are waiting for Haggas giving green light, but it may come in the near future :mail:

    Enable will now be targeted at royal ascot for her return

    Either this or the hardwicke

    Hope she runs as itll mean a better price for sea of class on the day

    I would see it as a mistake from Gosden to run her here,
    because only Sea of Class would benefit from the 10f imo.
    If he likes he can come here, I wouldn’t be afraid :whistle:

    Stoute saying this is the preference for Crystal Ocean.
    Think he’d be a shoo in for the Hardwicke and 12f would suit him better. It’s one thing beating Laarib over 10f but Sea Of Class is a much different proposition

    Agreed Nathan ..Crystal Ocean won’t beat Sea of Class but Sir Michael seems to be looking for a Group 1 option for him next so may not go the Hardwicke route. :good: Jac

    Regal Reality runs in The Brigadier Gerard tomorrow night at Sandown, and I’m hoping to see a marked improvement on his recent runs.

    Tomorrow’s meeting at Sandown is one of my favourite meetings of the year, and seeing Regal Reality again will be a bonus. I’ve already mentioned him on the Queen Anne thread, but the same sentiment apply here.

    I’ve followed him since seeing him at Yarmouth, and retain some hope that he can finally deliver. I don’t bet very big, let alone when they have multiple entries, but at 33-1 I will make an exception.

    “Enable to miss Royal Ascot”

    No surprise to me, and another masterpiece of communication and decision making from Gosden :yes: ,
    but I will stay diplomatic, otherwise Jack will be saying I am a boozer :-)

    No Hein, that’s not what i said, but i’ll leave it there, as we don’t need another Stevecaution moment from you :whistle: Perhaps, you should try and focus on discussing racing rather than bad mouthing people on here, and trainers constantly, it gets quite tedious.

    Anyway, it’s a shame the showdown couldn’t happen on both their seasonal reappearances, who’d have thought eh? 3 weeks advanced noticed from Mr. Gosden isn’t enough for some!

    Anyway, i’ll stick with Magical purely on the basis she has race fitness on her side (massively) and i think she could improve provide a few shocks this year to SOC + Enable backers…

    SOC probably should’ve won the Arc last year, but she didn’t in the end, and i’d imagine Enable might’ve been a little under the weather that day. Not as easy for her this year without the weight allowances.

    I’d be very keen to take her on here + if Waldgeist was to show up as well, i’d probably back him too.

    Oh no Jack, this is not what I said.
    I honestly criticized JG’s communication policy, as I found and still find he makes a confused impression and his statements are lacking a clear concept and are just not helpful to say the least.
    If you are not willing or able to see this feel free, and I agree we should leave it there!

    And I am indeed here to discuss and enjoy racing and I will go on to do so.

    Whom I played here I had already confessed, Sea Of Class is the class act in here, and she will benefit from the drop back to 10f to unleash her speed. It all comes down to James Doyle, that he optimizes his timing a bit and lets her loose in the right moment :good:
    Then I don’t see any real rival, as Magical is just a good and quite reliable girl, but nothing more.

    Ok Hein, i presume you don’t follow jump racing, because if you did, you’d be have your own complain thread on trainers. Just a note, AOB has left his army in the Derby, yet so will possibly be NRs at a late stage. That is much worse from a communication perspective that anything JG does. I don’t see a lot from you on him or any other trainers; so i am going to guess you just don’t like Johnny boy!

    Sea of Class is the one with the most potential to improve and become a superstar given her unexposed profile, but Magical is more than “quite a reliable girl” in my opinion Hein. She’s rated the exact same as SOC, and ran Enable very close as well. Perhaps not “unlucky” like SOC was.

    While SOC has the potential to improve, she also has to prove she has trained on. She’s been mentioned as quite quirky so i’d like to see her run personally before knowing how much improvement she has under the bonnet.

    Has the makings of a cracker with Masar possibly reappearing here too and others like Waldgeist!

    Going to be a fab race. I know Magical had it her own way at the Curragh and nobody tricky to beat but still, she was beautiful to watch.

    Really hope the gorgeous Sea of Class is fit, ready, trained on and gets a smooth run and all the others do too.
