Well SP doesn't count for anything given you need to add Ghaiyyath and Japan to the mix in that race. They were both 18-1 in the first race but yeah good point I have overlooked the Dragon a bit, just don't think his racing style will be as suited to the valley.Not sure how you can have Amory so far ahead of Sir D either. Both beaten the same amount by magical but sir d was 18/1 in doing so while Armory was 66/1
Best Solution board.Multiple warning signs for those keen on the Ape
- fully exposed 5yo
- never even contested a G1 in the UK. Won g2 last time out but was double figures and multiple hot faves went awful
- start prior beaten at listed level where he was only 8/1 anyway
- has to go to Germany to win cheap G1
- Placegetters from York win dropped down in grade and both rolled as short price faves next time out. I wouldn’t touch either in a cox plate
- started 40/1 in Hong Kong vase last year. A race dominated by Europeans. Finished second last
I would honestly back Fierce Impact to beat this guy home in a Cox plate.
yeah best solution won a Caulfield cup not a cox plate. He’d also started 12/1 in an Epsom derby. Apey is going around that price at listed level. If that’s the comparison your are doing to have him you need to reasses. Again it’s a lazy analogy. Danceteria would be a better comparison. I ask again. How is it going with the class drop out here?Best Solution board.
Placegetters might not have performed but 4th and 5th both bolted in at group level next runs
Deal - I'll pick something once we know who is actually going to be in the final field (could be anything at this stage).Straight comparison to Danceteria is just as lazy. If Folkswood can be competitive in a CP this guy can. Flogging Elequarm, Telecaster and Regal Reality at his last run before coming here is good enough form to beat the D graders, 3yo squibs and SA derby winners we have going around here.
Fair call how far i overlooked the Dragon but more than willing to go a H2H vs anything outside my 4

Would love to know on what possible basis you could make this claim (this just in - there is none).Soft7
Armory a lot better on firm tracks.
SirD meant to be a lot better on wet tracks and still couldn’t beat Armory that day.
Not saying it couldn’t be wet cox plate day but I have Armory well in front.
Would love to know on what possible basis you could make this claim (this just in - there is none).
Track was Good-to-yielding when Sir D beat home Armory (so not wet) - Armory has never beaten Sir Dragonet home - Sir D won their only meeting comfortably so forgive me if I think you are making all of this up.
And Armory ran third in a G1 to Victor Lodorum at the Arc meeting when it was bottomless while Sir D was also top 5 in the Derby and St Leger on rock hard tracks. So this all just seems made up to be perfectly honest.
No reasoned form analyst on earth could have Armory 'well in front' of Sir Dragonet.
Probably because the Guineas is two weeks away - it bolted in the Stutt Stakes on Saturday night.Such a strange year to keep track of everything, but I don’t recall how it went in the Guineas?
I was being a little tongue in cheek but have appeared to miss the markProbably because the Guineas is two weeks away - it bolted in the Stutt Stakes on Saturday night.
Would honestly probably have it as second best local hope as a runner in my 'any 3yo blind' selection I mentioned a month ago.
