    Powerhouse.. :yahoo:
    Cheers Mike and well done Final Furlong and all who backed him.

    Now a Group 1 winner and Charlie Appleby’s faith in him getting the trip paid off. :good:

    Winner looked very good.
    I backed earthlight but could not believe his sp of 10/11 – madness.

    One of the worst prices iv ever seen that earthlight sp

    As I said he was priced like he’d already proved he was as good at 3 as he was at 2

    Couldn’t have him at anything below 2/1 at all

    Space blues is becoming one of my favourite horses the way he’s going, given me two very nice wins at 9/2 and 6/1 the last couple of weeks

    Just caught the replay after finishing golf, he powered home, a great ride and great training performance to turn him out again so quick up in grade

    I don’t think we will see 11/2 or 6/1 ante post for Space Blues again. A very good winner.

    Space Blues 4/1 for Prix De La Foret at he Arc Meeting.

    Seems more than fair price.

    Seems too generous. Will he be running against Pinatubo? I Can’t see Charlie Appleby wanting that to happen.

    Trainer says that he has no problem running both.

    I think hed beat pinatubo fairly comfortably tbh

    Id take that 4/1 but I could see buick choosing pinatubo then space blues drifting

    But then doyle winning on space blues anyway

    Damn Earthlight was disappointing, fair bit to prove now. Well done those with Space Blues, talked myself out of it with the draw, but he managed to get himself through really well.

    3year olds getting shown up again, wonder if that’s a pattern to follow a little bit now?

    They actually have a poor record in this one, only 6 winners from 21 runs now.

    Since pinatubo runs in moulin how likely do you think he’d run in the foret too? There a month apart

    plus there’s a good chance he’d run in the breeders cup mile so they might want to rest him longer for that

    He won’t run if he wins the Moulin imo but may do if he don’t.

    Agree with Mike

    If he wins the moulin he will go to a america

    If he loses he will go to the foret
