Very impressive return this afternoon by the Railway Stakes winner in a 1200m G3 at Belmont.

A couple more runs in the west this prep, and then maybe the Mebourne Spring.

Those statements are contadictory when the horse came from a clear last.

He may run in the Belmont Sprint and then the Hyperion before they pull up stumps on this prep.

Trainer deliberately gave him an extended spell after the Summer. Like many of the breed, the horse is ligtly framed, needed to fill out and will improve as he gets older.

Ergo, no Stradbroke.

disagree obviously

slow tempo suited the horse because he could use his turn of foot over the late stages

last in a field of 7 is handy a burden regardless of tempo

It's a burden when compared with the tasks of those in front of him, who have had an easy time of it on pace.

you need to understand the individual capabilities of each horse to make that comment - which clearly you dont

I am in agreeance with Della. If you have a top class horse with a top class turn of foot, that horse does not need pace on up front and if he is not as fit as possible a slowly run race is far more beneficial.

I'll assume that you saw neither the field nor the race.

Probably justice done on Saturday cause he got the race last year when he did not earn it.

After the "weird" Autumn he has apparently now been sent to Smerdon.
