What the Nation is saying about Jan Vermeer...

SO YOU THINK has been backed into even-money favouritism for Saturday's Group 1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown after the sponsors reported taking a £40,000 bet on the Prince Of Wales's Stakes runner-up.The Aidan O'Brien-trained favourite, who was cut from 5-4, faces a mouthwatering clash with last year's ...Read More
  • medlocke · Many people in the UK think this is a publicity ploy. That no one has really laid a $40,000 bet on So You Think? If the $40,000 bet really did happen? It may have something to do with it being widely rumored that So You Think's regular rider when he was in Australia, Steven Arnold, allegedly having contacted Aidan O'Brien and offering his services to ride So You Think in the Coral-Eclipse on Saturday. Ryan Moore had ridden So You Think in both of his G1 starts in Europe. The G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup, and the G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes. But Moore is committed to ride Workforce for Sir Michael Stoute on Saturday. So if Steven Arnold really has offered his services? O'Brien would be foolish to refuse it. Because nobody knows this horse as well as Steven Arnold does. And nobody had ridden him in more G1 stakes races than Steven Arnold has. · 1027 days ago ·

  • medlocke · Ryan Moore has been Sir Michael Stoute's stable jockey for a long time now. But with the defection of Johnny Murtagh as Ballydoyle's stable jockey this year, Aidan O'Brien has been using Ryan Moore as much as possible on his best horses in major stakes races. Provided that Sir Michale Stoute doesn't have horse entered in the race, too. Moore has ridden the Australian superstar, So You Think, in both of his first two European races since he was transfered to Ballydoyle in Ireland from Bart Cummings stable in Australia. So You Think has won both the G3 Mooresbride Stakes and G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup in Ireland impressively. With Ryan Moore having ridden him in both races. At the end of yesterday's G3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown, where Workforce had defeated a very deep field, Moore was interviewed by RacingUK. He was asked, "you've ridden So You Think and Workforce, which do you prefer"? Moore smiled, refused to comment, patted the RacingUK announcer on the shoulder 2 or 3 times, and walked away. If Moore really believed that Workforce was the better horse of those two after winning the Brigadier Gerard Stakes? Why wouldn't he have said so for the record? Since he rides primarily for Sir Michael Stoute anyway. The problem is, I just didn't get the impression from the short interview that Moore really believed that Workforce was a better horse than So You Think? · 1058 days ago ·
BEHKABAD made the most of a prominent position to deny Planteur in the Grand Prix De Paris, giving trainer Jean-Claude Rouget and jockey Gerald Mosse their second successes in the Group 1 race.

On Wednesday, Aidan O Brien unleashes Jan Vermeer on Longchamp in the Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris. Normally a classy individual is required to win this race and one who relishes the 1m 4f distance. With that in mind, and taking into account my large sway of Jan Vermeer in the Epsom Derby, I'm unsure...Read More
The outcome of the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby was never in doubt with home-team Ballydoyle controlling the race with pacemakers Bright Horizon (Galileo IRE) and At First Sight IRE (Galileo IRE) setting a very fast pace for the 1m4f Classic on very firm turf. Their A-team of C...Read More
