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"?September 7, 2006 at 09:24 #76462SwallowCottageMember

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.September 7, 2006 at 10:31 #76463SalselonMember

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?September 9, 2006 at 18:54 #76464clivexMember

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 :)September 9, 2006 at 19:11 #76465
Some of us don’t half talk some rubbish. :biggrin: ;)September 9, 2006 at 19:15 #76466

<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?September 9, 2006 at 19:39 #76468
Where did you say that MM – I missed it<br>September 9, 2006 at 20:01 #76469

<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.September 9, 2006 at 20:03 #76470
<br>There you go Cormack.September 9, 2006 at 21:55 #76471clivexMember

he targets well and is nicely candid about his runners, a nice sign of confidence in his abilities i thinkSeptember 9, 2006 at 22:13 #76472Racing DailyParticipant

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.September 9, 2006 at 22:36 #76473FlatSeasonLoverMember

No-one offered me 5/1 in the end:( . The on course bookies were stingy too.September 10, 2006 at 00:31 #76474
Yes, I see that MM.
