"So for me it's a bit of a honey forecast with love and loves only it, especially with defending champion azaria, getting the worst of the draws in this spot. I do respect the local hope more like goddesses look fantastic out there in the mornings and I think she's really good too, but I think love and loves only you may just end up outlasting them. Naomi feel. Yeah, I'm kind of citing with Pete here loves only to me seems to be Japan's best chance ever at a British cup winner. And look, she's going to have to be ridden handley as we know the street's not very long. But as Pete highlight that Dubai shima classic effort would be good enough to win this against mischief, chrono genesis. And I think she's going to have to be a little bit more aggressively ridden. That's probably my only caveat in here. But I think she's good enough to win this for a certain. So yeah, I'm siding with her as well. And of course you have to use love, especially when Aidan O'Brien is highlighting that he wasn't that disappointed at all in her and I saw her on track. I had never seen her in person before. You know, she's not overly big, but she looks sharp to me. Yeah, how what is the atmosphere we were going to talk to? And unfortunately, he was he was in the air, so that was that done. But we'll be catching up with him again before the season ends. What's the vibe who's been like on track about end up writing team in general and about love? How is she settled in there? I mean, I haven't OCC inside the quarantine conga and there and I haven't spoken to aid in myself yet, but what I've seen from the O'Brien who said, as usual, you know, they come out and they're strained they're all behind each other. They all get around and some get a bit warmer than others, but I thought she looked solid to be honest. I wasn't disappointed. Perhaps not overly big, but then again, I remember from watching a replay that I never thought she wasn't overly big filly. And of course, you know, she was so ridiculously talented as a three year old. He got a give her credit for that. And in her loss racing the moie glare, I don't think that was a bad race, and maybe, you know, start getting back into fitness and she kept all the right company behind, you know, a Derby winner in a day or as well as mish riff. She's been in some tough races. Yeah, she has. Can you just expand a very briefly for us on the quarantine situation? Because that's something that we should have probably apologies everybody. Probably should have mentioned that at the start. So you are seeing horses on the track in the morning, but of course the Europeans have to engage in a quarantine protocol. What exactly does that involve? And is there any fear that it's going to affect how the horses perform at the British government? Because as Tim well knows it was all the talk of it, the Mel Bronco. Euros couldn't win it. Not a hope. What a lot of nonsense. Talk about fake news like absolute. Absolutely. Bollocks. I think the situation here has been very, very good. What I've heard from the Euros is that there was a 48 hours quarantine in place. So when I arrived, which was the Monday evening, I got to track on the Tuesday, although the Euros had cleared quarantine already. Not that I knew of was anyone still under pressure of not going out. And they all look really comfortable. They're all training in the normal training hour. So surrounded by other predis cup runners. So, no, I think the process from what I gather has been very smooth. Okay, that's good to hear. And it means that no one's going to be using any excuses and it means that the horses can hopefully run on their merits. I can't get away from stateside, firm ground, mile three, it's just going to set up ideally for a committee skate 6. I think at the price, she's too big at 72. Yeah, well look, it's going to be a bit of a blood test, but I'm going the other way. I agree with you and I am beyond no doubt. Well, the best bit of recent form on offer for this race certainly this year is that rather than shame a classic, she was there and very good at sharing as well. She said, one run back. She was beaten as a favorite, but she ran second. It was a perfectly good prep run. I think she's the one to be with the other thing is to talk about quick ground. Those Japanese horses love quickly around. When you talk about love, let me ask you this. Given that I brought in the tough classic has room in Japan, hardly he's strongest representation in the race for quite some time. If they had all the faith in the world in love, why wouldn't she be in that? Very good question. I think it's because this just represents a very good opportunity for them to win. And they were going to run her on champions day. And ascot and obviously she had a slight setback again. So that ruled a rose of that. And it meant that snowfall stepped in and I think that the original plan would have been snowfall would have gone probably for.

"Hurdles and then if chases what you want to do, you're chasing sooner rather than later. So if you do two, three seasons of war hurdles, they tend to jump flat. You know, on horses do get away with it and you do get horses or kids winning top class chases, but it's not. It's not ideal. And I'm also not a fan of switching up what's defense is halfway through a season, depending on how they get on. I think you'd probably come up short in the long walk. I'd like obviously a minute. You know, he's been an absolute fashion horse over the years, but he's just looking a little a little bit low what we've seen in the last year or two. Even taking his issues into consideration. So given his age and given the fact that he doesn't click on demand these days, he's probably got his work cut on, but I'd rather see him on a really good race and finish in the frame and the long walk and stay over hurdles than for him to finish 5th and then go chasing. Not like to see that. I agree with you. This isn't for me. You know, it is entirely up to connections. And I would never be in a situation where I say you must not do this. You pay, you pay the bills, you make the call. But personally, I prefer not to see him go chasing at his age because I don't think it's massively beneficial. I think he'd be I think obviously he'd be able to you could play some to win with the reference as well too much trouble as an office. And then you're not that far away from me to be able to run him in veterans chases. Qualify for veterans chances in January. Yeah. So you want to give them an easier time with things. That's a way of doing it. But the very fact that you can say that sentence, he could run in veterans chases in the spring. And he hasn't seen a fence is maybe a sign that that's probably not the ideal thing to do. Yeah, exactly. And look, it's not a 14 situation Williams raised eyebrows when he said that the punches sound first of all. I could chase them beforehand next year. Yeah. What? But he did and started. He started his career over fences that season. It's a different story. I completely agree with you, if you're going to start over hurdles, particularly run twice over hurdles, and then go, oh, let's go chasing. It's different if you start out over fences and do an about turn bouvier style and go actually maybe we're better off of our hurdles. That's it completely different topic. And it's a different thing because you're learning about the horse and going, you know, might be better to do this. This is a stairs hurdle champion. We're talking about. He's clearly not at that level, but it was interesting to hear both Aidan Coleman directly after the race. Andrew Campbell is an absolute gentleman and an absolute legend. And as you said, it's not for us to tell them what to do. But in terms of betting and backing the horse, this is the conversation that we can have. If Andrew decides, they want to go chasing. That's fine. But he was saying just how well the horse was working in the lead up to the race on Thursday. I was pundit and ruper bell was presenting I was presenting on Friday. He was my pundit with Declan Rick's casting, and we had Rachel king the Australian jockey. Sorry. The English jockey who's based in Australia now has a full blown Australian accent bidding for history when the Melbourne cup and beyond the second woman to do so. Oh, max dynamite. How you should have won. How you should perform the Mel Bronco. But I really don't like the idea of let's go for another hurdle race and then go chasing when he's gonna be ten in the new year. It's just not the way to do it. But Aidan Coleman was saying, look, maybe he'll improve from this race and we'll see what he does in the long walk. And I would love to see him come back, but I think you either stick with what you have or don't I think changing now would be a bit of a dilemma. I saw Ricky getting into it on social media. Given Harry skeleton, the what for? For example, on getting slammed by bulky Lee. And a number of trolls, you know who you are. And a number of others. I have to say that he was very confident about chambal without surname. And he I think at the time, you could get 5 to two, because I think at the time he was 5. And that was Friday. He's ended up going off two to one favorite for the race. And that in itself tells its own story because I would like to deal with will obviously give fusion ruthless full price. But I want to deal with the puzzle that is surname. So he's drifted in the bedding it's not the first time we've seen this, he drifted like a barge when he took on LTR and slammed them. He won this race last year when being vindication horse we've already talked about, but he's now been pulled up, pulled up, had wind surgery, offered 252 days, comes back for this. Pulled up. And while he was very bold and prominent early on, he has folded like a cheap texture. How worried would.
