"And you know Haskins brought up Melbourne Cup and boy you I wanNA talk about a firestorm. We thought the Derby had an aftermath. The this Melbourne Cups had an aftermath. Well uh-huh they disqualified point Aboard Master reality. He had the lead As he's I've been doing all year he's been riding aggressively and trying to use all the skills to get home. He looked like he was going to do it. And then balanced declare was on the inside Pencil Barron on the outside of fighting duck then tightened up paradiso. who was making this phenomenal for Wayne Lorden and that one little bit of a chain reaction with the winner Alan declare but it was hard to tell on the head on? When did it happen the stretch like they were right on the wires? So did it happen to strike. Before strike after SORTA stewards took quite a while to go over it and it turned out to be way. The inquiry work turned out to be Aidan. O'Brien's rider claiming against Joseph Brian's right doc. So they took Joseph them and they move up to third they put they put Joseph back the fourth. And then me off mine. WHO's Donald? But he wound up winning Craig Williams aboard the Toy. Your own son of declaration of war vow the choir He was highly touted into and all the commentary commentary before the rate big slice. I wound up betting prince of Aaron. He went off at sixteen to one. was in a winning position every step at one point. It looks like he's GonNa win and in fact at the Y.. Michael Walker stands hands up. biking won the raised. Any like what's to his last. Maybe not I've been. I've been a crutch back now. So he winds up winning running third moved moved up to second page eighteen dollars. The place one of his twenty. Something exactly came back for thirty with to watch go horses but as as Paul said earlier today you can make a chance for fourteen of them and then in the stretch of if you watch the race again and again but Chattanooga's Colt made the glass judge flying. That's making tons of ground surprise. That'd be Jut. Mine was at that Cross County residents winter hex software. Don't that but still he was coming on. William Bill just tremendous the Spanish on the wire and They took my keys on the the mind. veg suspensions actually out it's always it's always entertaining and one of those special days and I was in such a blur. You know coming out of the weekend and then traveling link so i. I was behind Catching up to it and all the and all the hubbub and speaking of Catching up and everything deck. Let's get your right before we talk Hong Kong and there is plenty there. There's actually a lot of news That I've seen from around the world Horses is that are starting to announce their intention to run on champions On the Champions Card but before we do that you're breeders cup takes so they would kind of disappointing my handicap and was just not what it should be. I was on with you when we're cavalry was on and I talked about tracking your father. Santa Neither Steve with that so that was no surprise the way the track played away from me. I just didn't have the right voices. I seven degrees with about if you tell me do tries. It's IT'S GONNA run back good in the first half. I gotTA figure Dunbar Road. It's GonNa be light in and she wasn't so that that cost and then I you know I I I knew track was going to be the way it was. I was right about that. And I know code honor the relatively small horse that Kinda gets over the popped track down too far and sure comes up the way. They're even like that goes on her and don't see was he. He didn't look before the race. Though I can't I can't blame it all on the track because in the post sprayed he was very antsy he was very not wash now going into the game but he was started warm. And that's to me. That's unlike him so even with the track he didn't look at going in and then obviously than handle the track so so it wasn't it wasn't a they want a lot of high five point Friday and Saturday and other than that originally this great I kind of had the opinion and Europeans Warren to strongest companion. Especially when magical make the trip turned out to be probably true but the one the one I really screwed up on sale sponsored that's That's that's when you go back and look how about applesauce episodes come up and I've been so so so I was just two more days of back getting it done okay. Well and that just shows you that you don't as I say repeatedly and I write that the introduction to keep people I don't want people to get completely flummoxed by by Breeders Cup and that they they you know they didn't do well and I. Can't you know you do well this weekend. delmar opens tomorrow and the Churchill. Fields Terrific You don't it's two days. It seems like they're the most important on the calendar when it comes to wagering opportunities but the money you make in the Melbourne Cup is just as just as valuable as the money you. You didn't make on Breeders Cup weekend and it's why it was one of those things where I kind of recognized that nothing seems to be working so I a lot of money Friday and Saturday. The thing is like when you're playing blackjack and you get really good cards. And then he keeps feeding him. So you're betting more than shirt because you're getting really good parts. Oh you get bad cards you just get that. Take your losses so I kinda problem everything down on Saturday. So wasn't you know I didn't that anywhere near the funding that I take him out. Taken out of my bank account too but the rights coming up and I look forward to the multiple foul and I got lucky because I could have just as easily been shoving second exactly. And that's what the that's what makes that's what makes it so much fun so maddening reddening or or so exciting. It's just it's gotta run for you That that's always the bottom line and on a day day on days like we had Friday and Saturday there were as as Paul. Matisse laid out brilliantly today there are things that are going to conspire against you. And you can't can't. You can't completely alter your game plan or abandoned your your approach. You can adjust maybe a B and tinker and throw in some savers and whatnot. But if it's not going to be your you know your day or your two days. Ah Ah but it doesn't reflect doesn't reflect on what lies ahead and and there's still a lot of good racing November's of terrific racing month that we got all the the action of Churchill leading up to the Clark And the stars of tomorrow to Ecuador off off to a tremendous start. I mean if they can if they can maintain this before people break camp and start the head to Florida and whatnot. It's going to be a very good Ecuador meet because the fields are competitive racing is interesting so that's often and del Mar With the first two cards sat and that looks like give. There's always a lot of good turf racing at del Mar so often. Go off we go. How about to spend the last couple of minutes? The Hong Kong updates about four minutes shopping rich sharpton ran on Sunday We now have a true Sunday. We have a high fifty races favorites at one. Twenty six percent the average field sizes twelve and one and the average win price is twenty dollars and fifty cents so prices again value. You and Twenty Six hundred seventy is pretty thoughtful considering twelve twelve though horses surveys Shopping on fat set Sunday very fast track is good too terminate running raid this time so when you look back at those races understand that they worked on pretty quick. Nothing really stood out on on. That took yesterday at Happy Valley They Rennes nine. Nine on the paraffin and interesting things Steve Race sex with the fifty six to one shot that one and you WanNa talk about how different things are from talk to them and I keep saying we want to be like the rest of the world that we used to be so the horse that won training by Begnaud young he was called into the stewards to try to explain this big former. There's a whole explanation the nation and and the chart comments and China's that easy stated that this was the second. Start off the way off. As I started at some mucous in his trachea they they trained him and congre which is inland about three hours minded China Trade Centre pollution and everything else and Hong Kong. Long time that's awesome but here stewards are paying attention not just You know I've done horses that I have run poorly a horse. Who when often you John? Why did he run so well? And that's that's you know that's called transparency and integrity.

Review: A Magical British Champions Day
"They cave obviously you were on Judy for sky sports alongside Freddie Tilleke and Alexander what was your impression of the latest renewal we've been having this essence twenty eleven it was the first time that they're the change to the jumps course they've basically said that saved the meeting that they would have had to cancel otherwise what was your impression of the day the position it's in the calendar it's always vulnerable to rain testing conditions it was great that they had the contingent and see their kings could have got a bit awkward otherwise the racing would have been at risk I think on the round course in terms of even being allowed to go ahead such was the level the moisture knocking around so we got it on I thought it was great racing it lacked a little bit of star power I think it's fair to say Bush on the day the race themselves for fantastic spectacles we got some great performances and we've planted look forward to what we saw with you to next season even I think and yeah look at sprint champion stay doesn't always necessarily deliver on what it's supposed to give its British champions day where one assumes the champ beans Ron and we have seen one champion perhaps on Saturday but it still delivered like reading high-cost Racing Really enjoyable ray say experience discredit atmosphere there and yeah personally I really enjoyed Chris deliver for you think Kevin Neal and the necessarily making champions with these races are all the title is there a there are so many big flat races are there in this country and that comes out so you just have to hope the good horses turn up and on this occasion I you know in most cases they didn't really I think in particular when you get really testing conditions for arc weekend fancy bringing those horses again two weeks later you know that was basically what they said that the wasn't it onto that factor I think one thing that might help going forward as if they commit to using ener- track just for all the run course races from can you just say well that's GonNa be our course champions day in the future for all that has been the hurdles back as far as far as I can make it worked fine on Saturday okay which is the first time it's ever been used for flat racing and it provided you know he was still soggy surface but it's it's better ground than you would go on the run course for sure and any encouragement you can give trainers and owners are not going to be turning up to race on the swamp is is pretty good news I mean I think the fact is you know this is the ground that we know expect for that day for all there were a couple of early champions days Iran serve goodish ground we'll agree UC ideally GonNa get lots of rain and it will turn soft and heavy in places this time of year and so even did freak weather one year where it was good ground again the reality is probably haven't been campaigned to turn up on that day because everyone's expecting softish grown which is a very good point at the atmosphere watching the sky seemed to be electric as well Peter so you're now a royal ascot veteran and ask veteran at that matter what did you make Champions Day in terms of my experience as a huge racing fan it was absolutely fantastic everything came together in terms of of the experience of being there and watching some top quality racing now when you think about the very name champions day and to the to everybody else's point I hear where you're coming from it's it's pretty tricky when you have a race that's two weeks after the most prestigious race in in Europe and the Ark and then from my selfish America part of the still think about the Breeders Cup all the time and with that coming in in two weeks as a potential target it's a it's tricky to to crown a champion between two champion two other days that are essentially designed to do the same thing but I think if you just take it for what is it provides a fantastic alternative and great end ABC's and target for a lot of domestic Brunner's from here and ends up being a racing fan I I I think it really deserves its prominent place towards the end of the calendar I I had a fantastic day out there and look forward to to try to many times more I was there in fifteen as well when I was living in London by a the experience of it it's obviously a very different animal than the royal me eating but something that I enjoy going to immensely and will target as a racing fan for many years to come a thoroughly enjoyed it I have to say and we'll done to the teams Sky Kevin obviously firm parts of that Long said Alex and Freddie I thought they did a brilliant job MC fits doing interviews I would have preferred it though admitted a brilliant interview with Aidan O'Brien Turku Gardens won the the longest cup which will talk about a few minutes time but I would have preferred it if mic was the one and not Richie to get Sean Lee whoa conduct because then I could have that clip to pay play in the final form of podcast we'll because it doesn't belong to US I can't play it damnit Mick Fitzgerald got that gold over what it means I don't mind that's fine yeah it's only the tenth highest grossing films of All Time Anyway the KIP CO champion stakes will be and with the feature race and magical who was beaten ten lengths into fifth in the arc only thirteen days prior to this race got back to winning ways she is real superstar of mayor but she's always enables shadow whenever she faces her even though Abel was beaten in the Ark this is the first time that Aidan O'Brien has ever won the champion stakes which in itself seems extraordinary but Chris it seems to me and we were talking about it on choose stay with Rushie and on Thursday with Steve Jones and rory champion the champion stakes for all that it is a prestigious prize maybe for ballydoyle it's a little bit an afterthought in in that position between the ARC and the Breeders Cup Classic Slash Breeders Cup Turf But this horse has proved to be good enough to go and get the job done for them and a worthy winner prestigious yeah I mean it has to be afterthought doesn't I mean you look at the best thing for the in stakes at about the time of the art I think you'd like a day before the art the top four in the batting stage we're all going to run in the are you know Japan is in there as well and others a new enable would have been one obviously so that's just the way it is when you talk class middle distance horses and they're probably GonNa go to long shot I aren't they and then case who's fit to go again and well it would be able because it seems that she's old boots what was this our is our ninth run of the year yes it was and it off in the middle of eight days after the grand national was her first run of the year and you know that nearly gotta be her best maybe upon short when she was chasing home able in New York but I mean she's holding her farm and it must be every she'll go again breeders cup I think she's fantastic I you know being jumps racing in principle I su- admire any horse the can be that jewel and can contain their enthusiasm for racing after all sorts of different experiences you know one talk class race after another one country net another one you d ground the last couple of starts and it doesn't seem to take anything off her she always runs a race Peter with a view to the previous cup she is obviously self boots she won the phillies and mirrors at the ascot meeting last year beating coronet she's now won the champion stakes proving

Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Preview & Best Bets for Paris Longchamp
"The dulcet tones of John Hunter who will be joining us on the final broadcast in the near future one of a number of new voices who will be appearing on the show in the coming months we're also gearing up for national hunt podcasts as well by the way of jumps fans. You can get excited about that but you can't not get excited about the ARC. It'll be live on sky sports racing at five past three assuming the French actually the out of the race to the correct time it's her second time running para longchamp and she bids to make history as John said in that fantastic Promo but become the first horse to win three in a row rick see. She is the queen of the turf. If she wins this race the publicity alone will be invaluable but in your mind as we look at this from from a pure punting perspective. What's your thoughts on the Ark currently look. I think the the market is near. The TAUPE is pretty accurate. We're able enabled his concern. Look she's odds-on she. She deserves to be outs on she. She is the these the the most likely winner but look I think in terms of a bash what I'd be doing in this race is probably taking her out of the equation and I'm playing a horse in the without Marcus at the moment which were recording on Thursday at the ground is soft at Longchamp and Dan. I don't think it's GonNa get too much quicker. I'd say the quickest it's GonNa get as is good ground for me that means. I'm just just tended to stay away from south staff. He would it be in the bed. I think for me without enable if the ground was good too farmer that but I just I'm not sure your he's going to be as good on this kind of ground. The price differential between Japan and the two to three older horses magical Michael Guy Eighth and wild is is colossal in my eyes vile cost in terms of pure ability alone. I think he can get eighty into one. They're about what is his chance. This is a proper made one twenty s horses east coming here on the back of lobby prepped eh before that were common here in the back of a career-best bind enabling the King George. I just worry about the ground for him. So we're concerned. I'm wondering the belt him balancing which I think peace can tell us more but I think the balances is a real American term. Suggest is a horse comes comes back after a long lay-off through injury or a setback and then runs a massive race and has a career based and that's exactly what gifted Abadan Badin Adin when he won the race out there a few weeks ago I just wonder will he be at the same level again and after all that then the more solid horse for me and at the prices is magical and I think magical is the best without without enable look she. We know in four star start against the neighbors. She hasn't beaten are but to collect the bet here. We can finish second to her again so that that's that's where I'm GONNA go. I think magical without is the is the date the most solid play in this race as a former ballydoyle employees all this talk on social media but how magical is not going to run in the ARC. She's she's. She's not going to run their because look at bet fair. Look at the prices. She is the not going to run. The exchange prices for ballydoyle horses are completely and totally totally useless. It's about as useful as a MARZIPAN DILDO. It's no guide wants so ever as to whether or not a horse is actually going to line up in erase the lads make decisions at the last minute but also Aidan O'Brien had state categorically that after she won the champagne stakes yet the planning planning the arc unless something changes exactly so I don't get it. I'm not trying to be a smart ass here by the way but like you could take advantage of of a massive price about her. During the week you still can to a certain extent it. Just it's beer baffles me. You need to put that in perspective as well. It's a win only market and and she's being beaten four times by the favorite so you know and people on bed fair whatever you know have a lot of money they can have strong opinions and put those kind of racism altern. That's probably what they were doing what they were doing Bush. The first mistake you may day or Kennedy is listening to people on social media and thank you you to all of our listeners who interact with us and say very kinds of Roy. Moore's not the number one writer about Eliezer. Don't you know so according to social media. I thought yeah look she's being. She's being declared for the race. I don't think unless you suggest they are less went wrong. She had a setback. She was always going to run here that would that was. I think aiden has been saying that since the start of the season the main the main goal at the second part of their campaign was the act can talk now she's here and they wanted an awesome campaign for that's what she was always being aimed for and and here she goes he says having b-actor at a big price price selfishly and then was being made to panic with all this talk on twitter about the fact that she wasn't. GonNa run screw you people. You had me panicking. She's going to get possibly ably thrashed by enable but Vanessa before we started recording this podcast you were doing in-depth analysis by yourself with no help from anybody else about the he drove bias at Longchamp so take us through that because the draw has come through enable is entrapped nine. Japan comes out of ten so tests comes out of one. There's a lot of talk from various different pundits and experts about the positives and negatives about this so your view on the draw for the leading leading contenders in the ARC. Yeah we'll just this sort of before we so tipoff any horse or anything just to really paint a picture of how this race is likely to unfold obviously chaos plays a huge huge pot and whether enable wins a third arc because what does will directly affect what Frankie has to do the neighbor and has had the worst possible. Essentially he is drawn on the wide outside. Install twelve and sought Saas is is drawn on the inside install one which is also the worst case possible for him so for both of those two leading challenges to enable they have the worst case draw immune while enable frankie perfectly happy android nine magical. Giovanni the side. That'll be absolutely fine salsas. Obviously we'll watch him. Draw aw back and he'll be called on the rail. We've seen him be stuck in traffic issues before that's going to be a huge problem for him. A meanwhile gear is going to have to use up a whole load of energy. Komo stole twelve gets the front and get across to lead which is what we know. He's GonNa try and do so that is a massive negative for him because he's used up valuable petrol and the tank just get to the front and soft light. Hughes who saw sausage pace bank has a much better drawer said he'll also be going into the front gate has overcome all these hurdles that's even before the races properly properly got going meanwhile enable will be dropped him probably a couple of off the rail hacking along with Frank. Here's we know and sought SAS is probably GonNa be dropped out and like I say have to come the traffic issues now one of the things just this also of note here is that Sea of claws last year essentially teed up what we are going to witness on Sunday which is of the CNA Guca because last year we all night with a little bit last traffic problems and having got rocking rolling a little earlier sea of claws house could easily have beaten enable. Now we know all the facts we know that enables eight seven eight five cents fit comes here this year much but a form Yada Yada Yada fought without and outside of class last year meeting that traffic and having to overcome many at the hurdles that sought size is going to have to come she. She essentially set the blueprint trip for how you beat enable yes. She didn't but she sat how you do it. If that makes sense because she with another stride she would've got there as we all know. There's no denying line not so. C- classes now laid down the blueprint about how to be enabled. We look salt. SAS who takes loads of the boxes but see of class loss yeah. He's a progressive three year old. He comes here off. The back of impressive wins. All season 'cause recco times. Yes that Glen I tait. You'll know about the ground that is touch concerning but essentially he's got a very similar profile. Obviously gets the way to allowance from enable as well. Now's how's cools. He's GonNa have to step up massively and he's going to have to overcome that draw the traffic problems but sought sizes connections will be looking at last year's his race and we'll be looking at cf class and we'll be learning from that and we'll be taking from that and working out a way to not get in the soda trouble Chic and because because that following that blueprint is going to be the best way to beat Santa Claus assaults us me while I think yet in a worst case scenario draw for both I mean what what connections of gas and salt sauce with due to swap the drawer they give a million for that because it would it be an ideal the other way around but they have like gauze played around and they've had an absolute shocker both of them gas is I'm with you. Declan worried a bit about about the bounce also obviously the former that German race you couldn't take away by how visually impressive it is it will aw and as they turn into the straight I imagine gas to be about four lengths in front enabled to be heading up the leading pack. Franchi will be sat is cool waiting to press the button gas will start coming back to them and frankie will press go butter and with a furlong to go the stands will erupt will -rupt it'll be wonderful for all of about six seconds and then the petrol gains will start to flicker enable. Hey Bill will suddenly not like winning quite such impressive fashion and out the back. Salt Saas will come with Ratto accuracy of cross but he went eh this time.
