Would you really take Abracadabras out of the race?! Even though Shiskin made a bad error down the back, was nearly brought down turning for home and still ran him down late on? Abra looks a very god horse, but Shiskin won the race when everything went wrong on ground that was softer than ideal. Hard to envisage a scenario where he reverses the form for me.
It would be interesting Flex, as while Shishkin had a much harder passage, Aba having a clear one really isn’t perfect for him, he hit the front too soon, and i think he’d have enjoyed having cover for longer.
Not saying i’d take Aba over Shishkin just that neither had perfect races.
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!
