On the live showing of the race I though Borderlescott had won but seeing the photo Jamie Spencer got up. The thing I can’t understand is why Spencer rides 90% of his horses from the back, surely the trainers do not ask him to because you can tell the horses aren’t happy going from the back…
Good race though and I can’t take nothing away from the winner.. shows Fanshawe was that confident he didn’t need to turn up on the day the stalls were drawn haha
Outstanding ride by Spencer, very strong in the finish without overdoing his whip use which could have been easy to do.
Funnily enough Simon Holt called the wrong result both before and after the photo. It always looked as if it favoured Zidane to my eyes.
