    That Jalil might not stay the ten furlongs – the price-tag will be like a milestone around his neck! :biggrin:

    He looked a little quirky the last day when Frankie pulled his whip through and imo he looks a jumper.

    He was enormously green at Newbury – Jalil is a big and unfurnished horse.  I have no doubt he will be very nice in time if he progresses but he needs time to fill out IMO as he is a large animal, just a frame still really.

    won as expected, still looks a bit on the weak side.

    a jumper he is NOT!

    as an aside, is Fusaichi Pegasus still the most expensive ($4m) yearling sold that won a G1?

    Who knows what will happen with The Green Monkey? At least Jalil won a race.

    I was at Ripon yesterday, the horse itself looks fantastic he is enormous and very imposing.<br>On the track itself he is a different story, ‘quirky’ as someone put below is probably the correct word and he was given a big scare by Fantastic Morning in the final furlong. He is entered in the King Edward at Royal Ascot and needs to improve tremendously.

    It was no surprise Jalil failed to impress on the undulations at Ripon. Even on a flat track like Newbury in his previous race he hung and was unbalanced. I don’t think we’ll see the best of him for quite a while yet, but how good that might be is anyone’s guess.

    Ironically enough, Fantastic Morning is a Godolphin cast-off who joined Mark Johnston as a 3yo and who was presumably thought not good enough to race in their colours.
