Im not sure they think it matters to him, he has that Roaring Lion type mentality where they can just keep running him and it doesn’t faze him. I’m more concerned from a betting perspective as I’d really want to back him wherever he runs, but I can’t see him beating Palace Pier on GS or S. So I’ll be completely torn!
I’m not sure David Redvers and Andrew Balding are aligned or even get on. They’ve said different things a few times now and I remember they talked about a heated discussion happened in the decision about the Sussex Stakes.October 13, 2020 at 13:00 #1505897ClintsParticipant

I remember recently how AB was saying how he had never had a Breeders Cup runner which seems quite crazyOctober 13, 2020 at 21:53 #1505967Venture to CognacModerator

I fancy him a lot more for The Balmoral, but I can’t resist a go on Escobar here at 100’s.
Been a bit disappointing this year, he might not get his ground, and the Balmoral looks more sensible, but he’s jocked up here, and though you can’t read too much into that, it offers a wee bit of encouragement.
Certainly saved his best for here last year, so at that price, seems worth a try.

Ground Conditions: “We’re soft, heavy in places and we’re due some light rain showers through the night as we’ve a low pressure system circling just to the north east,” said Stickels. “After tomorrow morning I don’t see anything more than an occasional shower through to the weekend.
“There’s still a lot of moisture in the ground from the meeting we lost the other weekend and I imagine it will be predominantly soft with some heavy ground on the round course.”October 14, 2020 at 08:38 #1506010
It’s going to be a bit softer than I thought then, will add Wonderful Tonight as a saver.
Even So 6/1

Kameko ruled out because of the ground and will go to the breeders cup next month.October 15, 2020 at 20:01 #1506166
Fillies have a very good record in the QEII, 2 x winners, 3 x 3rds, 2 x 4ths in the last 9 years since it started at Ascot.
Turftrax are reporting that there is currently better ground on the standside than far side so they could easily navigate up the stands rail. Nazeef has the plum draw again if so. I’m going Nazeef for the forecast as Palace Pier looks about as solid as you can get.

Hoping palace pier hacks up
Think he could be the best horse in training from what we’ve seen
And is still very unexposed so still improving
Expect him to look beaten at half way then whoosh

I think that Palace Pier is a certainty here, but he’s never been a backable price at any time for me.
I was going to give this a miss, but for interest I’ll take Royal Dornoch ew at 80-1 with Bet365 paying 4 places. It’s hard to justify I know, but worth a few pounds.October 17, 2020 at 03:51 #1506329BigGParticipant

I like the look of The Revenent at 11/2. I’ll have a few quid there
but I can’t let the 66/1 4 places for Sir Busker go without
having a punt. He may not quite be up to this class, but he will come thundering
though if he gets some daylight in final furlong and has a decent chance of a place,
and with the ground probably sticky, which won’t bother him, you never know.October 17, 2020 at 08:49 #1506354He Didnt Like GroundParticipant

The more I watch Palace Pier’s races the more impressed I am. Heavy ground always a leveller but if he copes he surely wins.October 17, 2020 at 14:59 #1506458Mike007Participant

Hope palace pier is ok
Looked to completely lose his action
Thought he was given a pretty poor ride anyway, hate it when jockeys make huge mid race moves, almost always the horses find nothing at the end
Looks like he lost a shoe, which is why he swapped leadsOctober 17, 2020 at 15:17 #1506469IstabraqParticipant
