I thought he dragged him further back then he had to also Dogsy  :what:

Anybody got any thoughts on how good he is ?

I have to be honest, I have only really watched him his last two ..... but thought he was super impressive in both  8-)

Super run, they should give it a let up and look towards something in the winter carnival.

Yesterday was frustrating. I was on him and thought he was going to run right over the top. Great finish none the less. Gave them how many lengths at the 200?

Yes, it was an amazing run by the Piranha.  He reminds me a bit of The Jackal.  One can't help but wonder where he's been hiding.

I've backed him from day one.

He has a barnstorming finish but being a back marker he'll struggle a lot.
I stayed off him on saturday.

In big fields he'll have to draw inside to have a hope over the sprints.

I think he'll run a strong 2000m

Saturday proved that barriers do matter.

Everyone was saying, prior to the race, that it didn't because he'd go back tp last anyways.

I have been on him his last 5 starts.   He had impressed me a couple of times with his Sydney runs and I had no hesitation in having something on him.
As a backmarker we know he needs some luck to go with his ability but I'm happy to gamble on him  getting the luck.

I suppose I've always had a liking for these run on horses....sure they probably don't win as often as horses who run on the pace but they sure are exciting to watching storming home from the tail of the field.

You could imagine Eagle Farm suiting BP down to the ground.  I can see him now storming down the outside with me waving my betting ticket marked 40-1.

Now when are those early Straddie markets rleased.  :chin:

Bareena will also be suited by SC and I understand she is backing up too.

Choice of riders will be crucial.

Black Piranha will return to Sydney this week for a short spell and Karakatsanis said the Group One Doncaster Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on April 18 was his next goal.

"I think the mile will be perfect for him next time in and he'll be a real lightweight chance in the Doncaster," Karakatsanis said.

"It's a big step in class but he's come of age this preparation and the trip to away might have made him."

yes and no, imo
that was the biggest field of backmarkers you will see, there was only 2 speed horses in the race so some of the backmarkers had to be ridden close up.

Yes, a commendable effort again by the Piranha, and I don't think anyone could question that the best two horses ran the Q.  Angland rode the horse well.  Whether the alleys determined the outcome we will never know, but Bareena's run was exceptional.  She's one of our very best mares and deserves to win a BIG one before she leaves us for the breeding barn.

Gallopers

Rest assured , if he had drawn out in 18 he would have been last and 20 lengths off the lead........He would not have won.

As it was, he jumpeed well and ambled along without being hunted to hold a spot.

Top ride by the kid, he knows the horse well

A big call Wily saying he wouldn't have won.

Didn't you see his run down the coast.   

That's his normal racing pattern on past runs is to be running last ,then storm home.  Sure he needs luck with a racing pattern like that but I reckon he would still have won yesterday even if he had of drawn the outside gate. 

The Sunshine Coast does favour back markers on most occasions.
