As soon as the commentator yelled "and they're off!!" the poor gelded and publicly humiliated Dominic hung his head in shame and trudged disconsolately around the track, beating only the riderless 34 Red, an uninspired horse too busy sniffing at midgets down the back straight to complete his own journey.

Australia just won the Gp1 York International in a dominant performance. I think that sort of distance suits him ideally.

Nice breeding, but it appears that Voleuse de Coeurs likes it Soft underfoot in her races.
Are you likely to get that kind of ground in the Cup?

The Gp2 Lowther Stakes looked like a high quality race for 2yo fillies with three of the runners appearing to be very talented. The three of them had a terrific battle with Tiggy Wiggy prevailing from Cursory Glance & Anthem Alexander & a long gap back to fourth.

A huge upset in the Gp1 Yorkshire Oaks with Tapestry narrowly defeating the 5/1 on favourite Taghrooda who had been unbeaten in four starts previously. They were a long way in front of Tasaday in third which would suggest that it was more a case of Tapestry improving than Taghrooda running significantly below her best.

Taghrooda had been the favourite for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in October so it will be interesting to see what the bookmakers do with the market for that race.

I was in Ireland last year when v-d-c (thanks WW for the spell check) streeted the St Leger by 6 lengths held hard, making the others inc Red Cadeau look like donkeys...she was sold to Oz and ran in the spring campaign...but her form tailed off...dont know if it was the hard tracks or whether the flight out or her form tailing off was responsible...still I will back her if odds are ok

Sole Force has won yet another Group One 5 furlong sprint with success in the Nunthorpe Stakes. I think that is four now (2 Nunthorpes & 2 King's Stands). He was absolutely bolting with a furlong to go but there was a wall of horses in front of him & it appeared certain that he wouldn't through. Then, all of a sudden, a gap appeared & he went whooska.

The Ebor Handicap will be run today. Who do you think will win?

I gave Pallasator a high rating when he won the Owen Brown Handicap at Ascot last month so I think deserves to be favourite. I also like Great Hall as each way prospect down in the weights. He is currently 16/1.

There are a heap of feature races at a number of venues today so it should make for some excellent viewing.

Starspangledbanner is now the sire of a Group One winner as The Wow Signal salutes in the Prix Morny at Deauville.

Mutual Regard won the Ebor Handicap. He is trained by former champion jockey, Johnny Murtagh. Sometimes the Ebor winner has come over for the Melbourne Cup but Murtagh said they were aiming at the Long Distance Cup on Champions Day which is held is mid October. Realistically, he would need to improve quite a few lengths to be a chance in those sort of races. He won yesterday off an official rating of only 106 & had an apprentice aboard claiming 5 pounds.

On a side note, it franked the form from a Listed Race at Leopardstown in July. The race known as the Challenge Stakes was won by Pale Mimosa (who won the Gp2 Lonsdale Cup at York on Friday). Mutual Regard ran third & then won the Ebor. Eye Of The Storm finished fourth & subsequently won the Gp3 Ballyroan Stakes at Leopardstown, although he since went over to USA & waswell beaten in the American St Leger. Manalapan finished second & also won his next start, a three runner handicap at Down Royal.

Have you become a fan of time form ratings recently WW? Do you find it useful?

I've given up studying form and just back moody and Waller trained horses in Sydney staying races

I've always done my own ratings but in recent years I have been continually tweaking a few things so now my database is close to where I want it to be. However, I recently got married, so now I have absolutely no money whatsoever to bet with. So horse racing has become just a spectator sport for me.
