I have already compared him to Takeover Target and Hareeba.  :embarrassed:

So he is off to Royal Ascot next year ?

More money to win here for a gelding.

He has two or three Kosciusko's to win.

Hmmm,

Being an optimist can hurt your punting bank!

I well remember Manetti winning by stunning margins in SA only to get done when he came to town quite soundly. Mind you it was a 7 horse field at the goat track and the jockey decided staying 7 wide was a good idea....... :thumbsd: :thumbsd:

R1Gunnedah, wow.its a long way to the big smoke but this bloke will do it

Burning Crown

How dry is it  :(

Looks like he will go through Class 1 but I'd like to see what happens after that. Damsire is General Nediym and the granddam is Tranquil Love who was a very speedy North Qld horse so bred to go fast.

But as Bubba has pointed out the 2nd horse has hardly set the world on fire and the 6 length margin with only 54.5 kg is actually about the same it has rated in most runs. Third horse is a 5yo Gelding maiden.

The Duke Of Wellington after he defeated Napoleon at the famous Battle Of Waterloo was referred to as The Iron Duke.

The horse Iron Duke had his 4th start at Newcastle today stepping up to a distance (1885m) for the first time and won by 4 lengths with Christian Reith having an absolute stranglehold on him in the last 50m.

https://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2018Aug25&VenueCode=MTc4MzQyNQ==&RaceNumber=2&MeetingCategory=Professional&VideoFileType=Last400m

He is by Duke Of Marmalade, a very good sire of stayers like Big Orange (Ascot Gold Cup) and other Euro G1 winners Nutan, Simple Verse and Star of Seville as well as some good local stayers.

Out of Pray For Me who was a King Cugat mare placed multiple times in Melbourne up to 2000m. This is her 2nd foal to race.

Looks more than capable of winning a city midweek BM race over 1900m and beyond.

Despite the massive blow  :chin: Danawi led everywhere bar the post to be nailed on the line  :shutup:  :tears:

After successive 2nds he managed to put his nose down on the line & survive a protest to get the job done in the Grp3 Ming Dynasty  :sweat:

I'll be watching Avilius very closely from here on in.

I thought Glyn Schofield's post race comments were interesting - cannot find them but he basically said it really took a lot out of him and his head was down after the race, etc.

And taken in concert with what James Cummings said post race I'm not as bullish on him any mo

What now for Avilius?

“He has still got to prove he can stay just yet.”

That was the word of warning James Cummings offered after Avilius consolidated his spot at the top of betting for The Metropolitan having won the G3 Premier’s Cup (1900m).

“He’s a really laid back horse but he was classy the moment he arrived at Osborne Park. Of our imported horses he just really looked the part,” said Cummings.

There were a few moments of concern for the $1.60 favourite after he was pinned between runners entering the straight but once Glyn Schofield found clear running he set out after the very game I Am Serious.

“He was a weapon once Glyn got him out and hit the line strongly. I think he is certainly one to keep following,” said Cummings.

“Whether we go to the Kingston Town or the Newcastle Cup next we’ll just wait and see how quickly he recovers and how far he wants to go next.

"We’ll nominate for The Metropolitan and I reckon he might be worthwhile nominating for the Caulfield Cup too. We’ll keep poking along with him and not get too carried away but I wouldn’t be limiting how far he can get this time.”

Wagner is a stablemate of Avilius and has returned from a spell at Canterbury today looking bigger and better than he was as a 2YO where he had 3 starts for 3 placings.

Cummings was guarded but did say he has been nominated for all the big races. Hughie was similarly impressed.

Avilius can stay 2400m . Can his trainer get him to 2400m  ?

He looked pretty strong on the line both Oz starts.  He's my Caulfield Cup horse at this stage.


Should he get a run.

I'll start with the impeccably bred MONTREAL who bolted in at Randwick. By the great lonhro and the great producer Piccadilly Circus is his grand dam

Surely he's the complete package and has more wins in store

Resumes in HKin Sunday off the back of 2 trial wins

He might even be my Melbourne Cup horse now.  Long way to go yet but he sure was impressive today.

A mate who does the trials put me onto him first up, he's been great since  :clap2:

Put them away again today with another dazzling turn of foot

Andrew Payne has a promising looking 3 yr old Dundeel gelding I'm Dun Dreamin' in the 6th at Sale today.

Has a bit to learn but looks to have plenty of ability.

  emthup  Dundeel is looking the goods.

I guess all the High Chaparrals look good so easily become favourites.

Will not get your money today but I doubt anything in front of him today will beat him in the future.

I just checked out his full pedigree thinking I may have been taken in by a wet tracker.....but I don't think so.

Hate seeing my horses ridden like that.

Missed the kick today at Scone, settled mid field, carried his head high like he had no idea about racing but put them way with ease  :yes:

What is the purpose of the cross-over nose band? I reckon he was trying to get rid of it.

The other impressive thing about Burning Crown was the fact he won a Class 2 whilst being only a Class 1 horse. There is a big dufference between those two classes

One of my rules PP is not to back a horse next start after breaking it's maiden.

I broke that today. He's good   emthup
