    Agree stewards here far too lenient, think I heard Ryan Moore got 6 days ban for that ride, Pat Dobbs later got 3 days for barging his way through in the Golden Mile causing interference to a couple of horses.
    Stewards in Australia at least have banned Hugh Bowman for 6 weeks for his awful ride that caused severe injuries and hospitalised a jockey, caused the death of one horse and another horse has been left with a broken leg but has been operated on so may survive.
    Need far stiffer penalties here.

    Blimey, poor old Vatican City, seems he was struck into, had irregular heartbeat, lost right hind shoe and finished lame on that leg.

    I think Oisin is being too hard on himself, Mohaather won that so well, don’t think Kameko would have beaten him today, but can’t wait for the rematch!

    Awful news. Desperately sad for the yard after losing Mountain Angel a few days ago. Lovely words in tribute in the articles, he was much loved by all.
    RIP Defoe

    Well done Emmet, rode the race perfectly to suit his horse. Some of the other jockeys could learn a thing or two from him.
    Interesting info from sectionals, and good interviews with connections on Luck on Sunday.

    Agreed, itv coverage much more watchable without the tedious fashion stuff etc, and the racing itself was first class, lack of crowds obviously a benefit for the 2 years olds calmness, and maybe also helped Battaash! The tv viewing figures were pretty healthy too.

    Really good to see Golden Horde build on the promise he showed last season, beautiful strong horse, super performance.
