    What an incredible performance in the Arc by Danedream, a 3yo filly who thrashed a super field by 5 lengths in race record time. I'd never heard of her before the race - what a first impression!

    Questionable tactics/ride on So You Think, but he couldn't have done better than 2nd anyway. There was no way Danedream was getting beaten in that race.

    They would have to regret not taking So You Think back over here for a three-peat.

    Really looking forward to Black Caviar and Sepoy squaring off in the Patnack, both superstars though cant see Black Caviar losing. Will still be a huge race to watch, just hope neither pulls out of the race.

    Was reading in the paper today that there is little chance of Sepoy running in the Patnack. It's a shame, but I'm sure they will square off many times in the next few years.

    I'm still spewing that the Caviar-Queen exacta paid 2.40. I deadset thought it would pay closer to 1.40 so I didnt invest heavily on it. ffs.

    Wow, I really loved Champions Day at Ascot. Wonderful concept, and every race was fantstic. Bit gutted that So You Think just got pipped by the French horse (not an omen for next week, I hope), but credit to the winner. And Frankel, Dancing Rain and Fame And Glory were superb.

    The best horse in the world was superb again. Frankel is a beast.

    I'm backing Frankel. Even over 6f.

    I'd probably just favour Frankel, but it's so hard to compare the two - neither has ever tasted defeat or even looked like doing so. Frankel wins by much bigger margins, but that doesn't really mean anything since Black Caviar has never been fully extended. The only thing that tilts it in Frankel's favour for me is that he has been beating stronger opposition this year.

    Hay List would be a great sprinter in any other era and she has just left him behind.

    It's hard to frank form across seasons, but consider the success that Aussie sprinters have had at Royal Ascot and Newmarket over the years - Starspangledbanner, Takeover Target, Miss Andretti etc. While they haven't all won, they've been very good, but as far as I'm concerned she's at least 4 lengths better than them.
