    The 2 to 2 and a half length gap between the Oaks and Derby winner shouldnt be taken literally. Did Love run the last furlong flat out having already won the race? I doubt it. More in the tank.

    Dettori said afterwards that the way the race was run, and the less than an ideal start his horse got coming out of the stalls, may have cost him a place and that in the circumstances he ran a good race. Sounds about right to me.

    The ground isn’t always soft. The last 5 Arcs has been Soft, Good, Good at Longchamp, and Soft and Good at Chantilly.

    Good ground is a preference for her on evidence so far. Train her for the Arc without worrying about the weather is a likely scenario.

    When no-one took him on early on (thought Magic Wand was going to) I thought to myself “he could win this”. ;-)

    I don’t envisage Peaceful being sent to the Leger.

    Another 50 yards and Peaceful likely gets up.

    The time of the race was pretty good. Love would have to have worked harder to get past Serpentine yesterday compared to the fillies. It could be that the winner is just a good horse. Time will tell. But agree English King is one to note after missing the break. Wouldn’t say he’s necessarily a Leger winner in waiting as the winner was talked about as more of a stayer pre-race so could improve again upped to 14f. I think on a more conventional track with that experience behind him EK could still be very good over 12f. Mogul is another one to check out next time if you believe AOB that he needed 2 runs to get fit. Little between him and EK at the finish.

    Depends what the stats are Frenchy. Who wins a Derby after winning a maiden a week before? Some stats told you Serpentine cudnt win but he did.

    Re Love, AOB said we will see but then said we would have to think about the Arc with her now.
