    Watched Peter Thomas (brains trust/selection committee member) decry the rating of flyingbolt with no arguement other than he doesn't believe it. Guess if you have made up your mind that Sprinter Sacre was the best it doesn't matter.

    Michael Dickinson today rates
    1 Flyingbolt
    2 Badsworth Boy
    3 Sprinter Sacre ?

    Interesting for me to read that Kauto Star was the first chaser to be top rated at 2miles, 2m 4f and 3 miles at the same time.
    Pearlyman kept Desert Orchid off the 2 mile list in his time.
    The debate continues.

    Does anyone realize that Flyingbolt's rating of 210 is based on him running in only 2 x 3miles plus chases?

    He never faced anything like Cue Card UDS and no way on this Planet did he come across anything within 2 stone of Sprinter Sacre.

    The 2 mile CC was so bad he went off at huge odds on shortest in history I belkive,

    Dunkirk was dead and his superior Bouna Notte had been stepped up in trip and went on to actually beat Arkle.

    Putting his name at the top is nonsense.

    Sprinter destroyed a Champion Chase winner by 13 lengths a horse that should be a CH winner and the horse that Flyingbolt beat would have got within 10 lengths of Sizing Europe




    Think about this..what make MD a good judge he was 14 years old when Flyingbolt won the QMCC

    We have been brainwashed for years about these horses time to get real

    Any poll of 2-mile chasers which has Master Minded rated higher than both Moscow Flyer and Altior, isn’t fit for polishing hoops.

    if the messiah comes and just makes points as factual as that, we should rejoice Maruco

    Absolute tosh from the RP

    Surprised segal didn't find a way to get Min number 1
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done
