    I don’t know why people are complaining about Sea The Stars having a rating of 140 – Lady Marian has a rating of 540.

    Geddon Dar Re Mi – What a filly, she should go BC Filly & Mare Turf now as she’s in it. Staclita ran really well but was just outbattled by better horse – She should stay for the L’Opera on Arc day, will absolutely hack up.

    Totally shocked.

    Having backed Stacelita to win a few quid, I had resigned myself to the fact that she had been pipped on the post by the better filly on the day, and that Jimmy Fortune had ridden the perfect race.

    I just switched on ATR there, only to discover that Dar Re Mi had been disqualified.

    Only in France. :roll:

    Of course I’m happy at my unexpected gain, but for the life of me, I cannot see why Gosden’s filly was thrown out. An odd decision and one which seems an injustice to me.

    Reason was Dar Re Mi interfeared with the 5th horse i think that is why it got chucked out.

    Pathetic decision, absolutely pathetic. Proven totally correct by how poor Stacelita is, proven totally correct by doing a Dar Re Mi-Spanish Moon double and then you get this kind of **** thrown at you, disgraceful.

    I wonder if Sea The Stars will get thrown out if he beats Stacelita by a neck in the Arc. Embarrassing decision.

    Stacelita isnt that poor, Rougets stable seems to be a miss at the moment and something cannot be right at the present tiome, his horses seem to have gone backwards or injured.

    She beat nothing before today and the migs fell for the hype………Dar Ra Mei simply isn’t that good and certainly not up to Arc.

    I just backed Conduit again at 10/1 and you can still get 9/1 if your quick

    I’ve watched the race again and I’m just embarrassed, I really am. Embarrassing for the sport. Remember when Eagle Mountain was taken out by Zambezi Sun in the GP de Paris 2 years ago and nothing was done. That was 10 million times worse than today.

    I think a no-French racing policy for me now, just pathetic.

    Kasbah Bliss thrown out.

    Apparently a pigeon flew across the path of the runner-up so they switched the placings.
