    Plenty think like you EC as Bet365 report Icon as friendless all week and now 5/4 from odds on.<br>They reckon it needs to go to 6/4 before backjers come back in.<br>There has been support for Red Rocks and for Championship Point at longer odds.<br>However plenty of horses seem to be there more in hope than expectation according to connections.<br>What is your idea of the winner out of the 12 in this desperately weak "classic"?

    Jeremy Noseda is still bullish about Sixties chance but there’s no doubt that the stable are not in good form :( and I wouldn’t back him at the present price even if he is the best horse on form. I don’t see the value in it.

    EC, couldnt agree more about Sixties icon.

    Am I the only one who thinks Red Rocks is massively overpriced at 5/1? Especially as he’s the only horse with proven group 1 form. That second to Rail Link could look pretty impressive after the Prix Niel – pity we have to wait until Sunday to find out!

    With the ledger reduced by 155 yards, surely stamina will be much less of a factor. Would anyone agree with the assertion that RR simply went too early in the Great Voitegeur and got mugged? Was RR fighting back at the finish?

    Hes a top class trainer and its a sign of great trainers that their best runners are often seemingly unaffected by the stable’s form

    Was terrific to watch :)

    <br>You should, I am amongst those speaking garbage lol. Thought Sixties Icon was an awful price at anything less than 2/1.

    Impressive today to say the least. Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing?

    <br>In another thread somewhere mate can’t remember which one now. I did say he had a chance though in my defence just thought he was vulnerable particularly at a short price.

    i think hes there already

    he targets well and is nicely candid about his runners, a nice sign of confidence in his abilities i think

    Whilst it won easily enough, it was a very poor bet IMO.  I just couldn’t have it and went for a lively outsider.<br>It illustrates what a p**s
    poor race this year’s St Leger was that a, merely, above average animal could win it at such short odds.  The 50/1 rag in second place backs up that analysis.

    No-one offered me 5/1 in the end:( . The on course bookies were stingy too.

    Yes, I see that MM.

    Fair play.
