I'm a glutton for punishment and will have something on Big Memory third up nicely weighted with Williams on, up on the pace at the Valley.

Northwest Passage adds interest, I think it's unders against some tough older stayers without much weight relief here but hard to say.

Yes, I want to back Northwest Passage and my ill discipline will probably get the better of me and I will, But he does not look well placed here.

Blew out but too good, super ride Katelyn Mallyon.

Big Memory raced a bit flat and got caught too far back in a paceless race.

Great to watch all these developing So You Think stayers coming through    emthup

Be interesting to see what rating he rises to off that win, By my estimates he has another win at listed level off the minimum depending on other nominations of course.

Before the race he was  78, rough estimate he could rise to anywhere between 90 to 95. My guess 90.

Great to see a promising up and comer on the scene and the name Mallyon riding a winner for the daughter of TJ - brings back memories of the 70's and 80's.

Winning that race on the limit by 3/4 length - he's going to have to improve to be a player. But I suppose you can only win and he's done that 5 times out of 6 goes thus far. Good luck with him and hope Gai sticks with Katelyn (Hyeronimous is out for some negative reason at the moment ??)

I've never advocated a horse be forcibly retired but Puccini is a shadow of the horse that won the Thorndon mile over 2 years ago and it appears cruel to make him try and run those distances which he is clearly struggling at.

Many a good 3yo gives the appearance that it is a stayer but the fact is that they met ordinary same age peers at level weights and their class got them through.

Off the top of my head Bounding Away, Mahogany and Shoot Out were 3 very good horses (not knocking them) but with the benefit of hindsight they weren't stayers - their class got them to win classics.
