    Magic Circle for me in Cup. Kept for the race after winning the big races in May and the stable very capable of readying one after a layoff. Owner is a nutter so I hope he gets the win as Melbourne won't have seen anything like him for a while.

    Also what is it with the name change for Cliffs of Moher you stupid bunch of crims?

    If he stays Rostropovich could be massive value as he has been running in better company all season and has a low weight.

    Big race of the day will be won by San Benedeto at Exeter.

    Heart-breaking to see what happened to Cliffs Of Moher. Found it hard to care too much about the race afterwards.

    given the thousands of races run daily without incident this recent trend with the cup is grim. people lured by the cup and putting their horses into situations they'd otherwise withdraw from?

    I really don't know what it is. There are other races that I have some concerns about regarding horses being pushed quite hard to get there, like the Golden Slipper (inexperienced 2yos) and the Victoria Derby (2500 metres for just-turned-3yos), but the safety record of horses in those races in the same time period is exemplary.

    Cliffs Of Moher was highly experienced (but not over-raced), fit and from the stable of one of the world's ATG trainers. For whatever reason, he just seemed to take a bad step.

    I think a lot of the incidents have just been horribly bad luck. Like Araldo a few years ago - a ****wit waved a flag at him, he spooked and smashed his leg on a fence. Flemington quite rightly cracked down on **** like that as a result.

    stats i read were 120 deaths each year from 190,000 starters in australia which is below the natural death rate of horses of racing age (0.07% compared to 1.5%) so the melbourne cup having so many issues this decade should cop the blowtorch from the industry you'd think. the likes of PETA and friends are already good enough at spreading incorrect statistics and general bilge.

    Cheltenham week looms and I can't wait.

    Going all 4 days for the first time and really looking forward to seeing Buveur D'air and Altior. Got loads of good antepost bets going but 33-1 about Lalor who is now 4-1 and 10-1 about Epatante who is 6-4 and the best bet of the week are my best.

    Is the Grand National as big a thing as the media make out?

    Yeah, I hoped Red Rum's consecutive Grand National wins wouldn't be repeated, but now it's happened, it's simply extremely impressive.

    So, that's it for Winx - 33 in a row (25 G1). Sad it's over, but it's been a heck of a ride. Doubt I'll ever see anything like it again.

    That's a pretty unsatisfactory Kentucky Derby. Maximum Security certainly wiped out a few horses around that home turn, but I'm not convinced the promoted winner Country House was that badly affected.

    He wasn't but interference in American races usually means DQ so despite it being a big call it was always going to happen.
