    If you invite people's thoughts and they offer them you should be grateful they did so.

    With Coolmore set to lead the dance, there's every chance that Telecaster will get the strong pace he needs at this trip. However, he was all out to win the Gp2 Dante. There'll be proper gp1 horses breathing down his neck tomorrow and I doubt he'll be good enough.
    Suspect this is no more than a KG warm-up for Enable, so Magical would seem the obvious beneficiary.

    It was a little bit rude. You don't like people dismissing your views out of hand....

    Just a thought.

    There was nothing rude about it.

    I mind people being personally insulting. They're welcome to their own opinion so log as it doesn't cross any lines. I should be entitled to mine with the same proviso.

    However, I'm fed up with some of the stuff that's been going on here for long enough. I'm taking an extended break.

    Telling another member "not to waste their money" without deigning to give a reason why is not only rude, it's also arrogant and, having experienced similar from you recently, I'm not at all surprised that Marb takes umbrage.
    Learn from it, and move on.

    Tough ask after the Dante/Derby. Imo only top class 3yos can win this unless you have outlier conditions eg unusual ground (Hawkbill) or a renewal that featured no decent older horses (Oratorio)

    I took 5s about Magical earlier in the week. Conditions are against the favourite.

    Unfortunately I kind of agree with this.

    I'm a bit surprised and disappointed.Marble asked a question and D.O answered.if it had been me I would have laughed.
    It's a bit like asking someone if they think you are ugly and when they say yes,you smack them in the mouth.
    If you dont like the answer,dont ask the question.
    If it had been me I would have asked DO why?

    Totally agree with Outsider. Talk about mountains and molehills! A bit of harmless banter IMHO. And FWIW, I think DO will be proved absolutely right, and not for the first time! reet hard`s comments are laughable( and way over the top)...again IMHO.

    Greatist horse won...well done Frankie.

    I will stick with Telecaster. Looked keen today. Too fresh. He'll improve later in the season, (nap).

    Enable miles the best there cantering along on the bridle two out when everything else off the bit . Got a bit tired and still ran a very good time just a second outside STS record .

    DO quite right about Telecaster looks like he beat a non stayer and a half fit animal at York now . Wise advice !

    Yes, Maurice was both rude but factually right, on whether Telecaster could run well or not.

    My 20p Lucky 15 went down, no hard feelings.

    A great race to watch.

    I think the flat seasons just starting to pick up.
