"tom marquand" Discussed on The Final Furlong Podcast
"To have it, I know on a global stage, the fact it crashes with FA Cup final, maybe isn't a big thing, but it is here, isn't it? And I've known the police are saying all about the safety aspect of it and that's part of the reason it's all changing. But yeah, I think I would probably say it's a happy coincidence, but one that epson welcomed of open arms. Yeah, I'm starting to wonder, should I do my Alex Jones impression of putting a tinfoil hat and start talking about the psychic vampires who are still in the souls of our children? If we just fully embrace the madness of being a full on conspiracy theory podcast. But if they were to come out and say, look, we're going to change the start time for the international audience. And that can be refuted by saying, well, hang on, that's not going to suit the Americans, because essentially, on the east coast, it'll be run at half ace in the morning. So that's not going to really suit them. But how much of the American pool? How does the American pool compare to the Middle Eastern pool? And to the Australian viewers. I suspect there's an awful lot more money coming in from Australia. I don't know, but I'm guessing there's more money coming in from Australia, Hong Kong and Japan than there is from North America. And so it is going to suit those jurisdictions really well. It will suit middle Europe. Central Europe, Paris will get it at two 30 in the afternoon, and we were going to get at one 30. I think the whole thing's a bit of ridiculous nonsense quite frankly. The idea that the key race of that day, the Derby is going to be run at one 30. We're basically no build up, you're just straight into the main course and then you're often we get the epsom dash and the rest of that card, which isn't really a whole lot of appetizing stuff. And just the FA Cup is a good excuse to work around that. And if this turns out to be a success, like if the world pool figures are really big, don't be surprised if this is what they do going forward, that it won't matter if there's an FAQ on, the Derby will always be at one 30 or 2 o'clock. I'm open to change if something works and it benefits the sport, great, but instead of talking about the Whirlpool and the international audiences, maybe we should be focusing on our own audiences. And looking after the UK, the paying customer in the UK and Ireland, the paying viewers, the paying fans, and giving them the priority and anything you're getting from world tool as a bonus. But hey, maybe we have gone down a complete conspiracy theory rabbit hole, and that it is all to do with the FA Cup, and it's just a bizarre coincidence, but I'm not so sure. The ormond steaks. Changing of the guard was sent off a very short priced favorite after a good week for it. Brian, it didn't really work for him. He was beaten three and a quarter lengths, but then again, he had been off the track for 328 days by the time that race came around. And Hamish is a damn good racehorse and was given a tremendous ride from Tom marquand and is clearly a horse who can make it a decent name for himself in group company this season for William haggis and the team. What did you make of his win? Yeah. Like you say, super impressive, wasn't it? I look at this horse and I was just looking at his previous runs and the going. He's been on. I must admit I got it wrong. I thought that he would need a lot of cutting the ground a lot of dig, but I mean he was a really impressive runner up to kypris kura, September last year. That was on yielding. You know, he's had some good runs over good to soft. He's one of the good to firm at York because he can do it in sort of any conditions you like. You can throw anything at him. He seems to be really resolute. He knows exactly what his job is. And yeah, I thought this was a solid solid performance from Tom, obviously Tom took that kick in, didn't he? And cut open his arm or his elbow really, really nasty, and he's had some hard times, I guess, of injuries. It was down in Australia, wasn't it that he fell off as well and hurt his shoulder there, I think he needed surgery on his shoulder. And obviously he got the kick in here. So it's probably been a bit of a stop start season for Tom so far. Obviously getting a lot of rides for William Hagan as well. So maybe you can invite me a little bit on this Emmett. What would be the race that what would Hamish go for next you think? What would be the sort of race that he would be targeted at? I wondered about the goal of cup and ask it. And it seems as though they're going to run them in the Yorkshire cup next. But I think what they were saying was Yorkshire cup and hardwick steaks. And I don't think is an entry for the, by the way, my producer Trish is telling me that I completely spectacularly messed up early on by suggesting that add AR had won the Darby in 2019 when he wanted in 2021. Sorry, he's a 5 year old, of course he did. How did I get that wrong? But it is entirely possible that they would supplement them for the gold cup. And in a year where he stayed two months before, I don't know, but in a year where Cypriots is on the sidelines and there's no stradivarius story about anymore and there's a lack of strength in depth there. If he was very impressive in the Yorkshire cup, which he's going to have a huge chance in, maybe you have to seriously consider that. And it's we'll have to see what's going to happen with the likes of broom and Emily Dickinson for the ignoring camp. They seem very bullish about Emily Dickinson and she was certainly very good on her comeback. Will she stay two mil four? I'd ask us, don't know el is going to come back to saint ledger winner. He was disappointing in two starts in the Grand Prix to Paris and on champions day, but in between that, you want a classic. He's going to be a player of the season. It's not a deep race. So I think York is next in the Yorkshire cup. And if he wins that, I roll the dice over the two mile four of the go cup trip, but would you? So I would, for them, I would say yes, there's a horse I'm keen on. One of Willie Mullins, who's swapping the hurdles for the flat, stay in distances. And I've had a little girl on the Melbourne cup already at a hundred to one and that's. Now they've always mentioned him for a flat campaign and the richies have had runners in the Melbourne cup before, they were runner up, can't remember the name of the horse and the horse. Max dynamite, and it was Frankie to Tory and he waited too long and I still haven't forgiven him for it. Oh my God. It was the year the hundred to one shot 100 Michelle Payne. I didn't bring that up on purpose there. I didn't know anything about the bet you had. My therapist is just love and life already gone that's another hour long session of easy money. Thanks for that mate. I know it's the asphalt gold cup and the massive racing is wonderful prize money. Cypriots in that style of that division. But it kind of reminds me a little bit of the stayers hurdle at cheltenham festival. If they're in this race, then they're not quite good enough of offenses of why they've been going for the German gold cup or they're not fast enough over two mile 2.4 for rhino or whatever. It's kind of like who really wants to stay in hurdler. And I mean, the fact that cyberbully just keeps coming back and winning everything at a 114 years of age shows like they don't get me wrong Fantastic Four. But I really what's going on there. And I kind of feel like this staying flat division is kind of ripe for something to come in and really shake it up a bit this year. But look, you can't poke too many holes in what Hamish is done. Yeah, I think why not why not just go for it? Yeah, run them over the extended trip. See what he's got. Doesn't work doesn't work. He can go back to sort of the one mile forward 5 and a half on my 6, whatever he's run over two miles before instruction and Scott. So let's just see what he's got. Yeah, I completely agree with you. And we hadn't talked about that beforehand. So it's good that we're of a similar mindset there.
