Declaration of War 2yo colt. Debuted at Deauville this evening. G1 horse for sure.

Same owner/trainer combination as the superb Almanzor.

That was a striking performance. He accelerated through a gap on the corner and than changed strides as he lengthened and just bloused them.

Very classy.

This one you would swear on pedigree was a Juddmonte youngster.

3rd Dam: Supergirl, by Woodman
   Olmedo was restrained off the pace and found a comfortable rhythm racing at the back of the main body of the field after the initial exchanges of this debut. Allowed an inch of rein off the home turn, the 33-5 chance quickened smartly to challenge wide entering the final eighth and easily outclassed his rivals in the closing stages, cruising to the line four lengths in advance of Alhadab (Fr) (Camelot {GB}). “Of my 2-year-olds, he has always been the number one and was working brilliantly,” insisted trainer Jean-Claude Rouget. “He has a lovely action and stride and does things very easily. He is an easy ride and was really quite impressive.” The €100,000 ARAUG yearling, a fifth winner for his freshman sire (by War Front), is the second scorer from as many foals to race produced by a winning daughter of G3 Prix Penelope runner-up Super Lina (Fr) (Linamix {Fr}), herself a half-sister to G2 Prix Noailles-winning sire and G1 Prix du Jockey Club runner-up Super Celebre (Fr) (Peintre Celebre), from a family which includes MGISW US champion Steinlen (GB) (Habitat). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €13,500. Click for the Racing Post result or the free Equineline.com catalogue-style pedigreeVideo, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.

Thanks Bubba, I thought there would be jumping up and down that I was off topic.

Both beaten as odds on favourites on wet ground after being held up on what may have been a leader's track.

Neither defeat causes me to lose any confidence about their prospects at the top level.

Olmedo just too good in a close finish to the G1 French 2000 Guineas.

Hey Gaman was 2nd and Dice Roll 3rd.

Wootton was fav. He pulled his head off and ruined his chances. Ran 4th.

Yes, run an unsafe track according to the jocks.

They refused to ride in the following race, the G1 1000 Guineas, unless it was switched to the Grande Piste (outer track) from the Moyenne Piste (inner track).

Both Classics were slated for the inner track in an attempt to alleviate the barrier bias caused by the placement of the starting gates on the outer course, where the first turn comes up less than 200m after the jump. 

The proximity of Hey Gaman, beaten in one of the weaker UK Guineas trials, to the winner does place a question mark over the strength of the form.
