    3.10 Chester US Army Ranger NAP/NB – 4pt stake

    Short price but with the potential of this horse, he should take this well. Only worry is a lack of runs but very strong in the Derby market so he’s believed to be a top horse

    • Profile photo of gibbo
      gibbo 7 months ago

      Not often I go back on my selections but after digging a bit deeper in the fav, he is a very short price for what he has shown so far. Decided to cash out for a miniscule loss and just watch the race. Johns selection could be well up there.
      I fear when I bet the Fav I was taken in by the hype so better to be safe than sorry and just watch it run lol.
      GL to all today, haven’t had time to read the tips but I will have a little look later.
      Hopefully another winning day for the usual suspects
      Bring on the Derby!

      Gutted about the price on Red Amirable, he was 14/1 to win early this morning and now backed into 6/1. So I was hoping of a price around 4/1,9/2 to place in the top 3 but unfortunately he’s currently 13/8 to place.

      That’s one of the main reasons why SkyBet don’t release their prices on Place Betting until 10.30. Oh well, hoping for a good day. Good luck if you follow!

    Port Douglas wasn’t given a hard ride, thought the jock was too easy on it to be honest. I’d be gutted if I’d backed it. Bring on Idaho!

    I think Seamie Heffernan will be kicking himself there,
    US Army Ranger all out to win but Seamie if he had got stuck into his horse could have won,
    Port Douglas also giving US Army Ranger 4lb and on that showing US Army Ranger won’t win the Derby, good result for Idaho as I am far from impressed with US Army Ranger

    Unlucky there Jim, I thought we were going to sneak it at the death.

    On second viewing of the race, I have to agree with you. Heffernan seemed to ease up in the last 100 yards or so.

    johnb at first glance i thought the jockey on port douglas gave a bad ride ,but listening to fitzy explaining that the jockey eve rtime he hit the horse he was going in on the fav and he was that close to him he could not change the whip to the other hand

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 7 months ago

      You don’t have to hit a horse to get a response but it helps, what I am saying is his riding action just wasn’t strong enough,
      Heffernan gave the horse a crack and the horse picked up but the jockey didn’t follow it through as he could easily have been stronger with his arms to push the horse out,

        As Its been said, it’s the Coolmore way and it’s not the first time that has been speculated
        It’s no good for the punters as the horse was beat, it’s just about what’s right now

    Official Stewards Report

    Race 3 – 3:10pm MBNA CHESTER VASE (CLASS 1) (Group 3)
    The Stewards held an enquiry to consider why Seamie Heffernan, the rider of PORT DOUGLAS (IRE), placed second, had appeared to allow his mount to drift off the rail from 2 furlongs out around the bend into the straight to the benefit of the winner, US ARMY RANGER (IRE), ridden by Ryan Moore who got a run up the inside to win by a short head. They interviewed Heffernan and Aidan O’Brien, the trainer. Having heard their evidence and viewed recordings of the race, the Stewards noted the rider’s explanation that his instructions were to make the running as the horse was a staying type who would be suited to front running tactics, and would be running in the race on his own merits. He added that he had stepped up the pace from halfway down the back straight and had always intended to take the middle line to avoid getting his horse unbalanced by “dragging him around the bend”. He therefore gradually came off the rail. He further added that he was unaware of the position of US ARMY RANGER (IRE) when coming off the false rail. The Stewards also noted the trainer’s explanation that he had removed the blinkers for today’s race, as PORT DOUGLAS (IRE) was stepping up ½ a mile in trip and he didn’t want the colt over racing. The trainer further added that his instructions to Heffernan were to make the running if he could and stated that he always leaves it to the rider regarding where to kick for home.

    The Stewards further enquired into Seamie Heffernan’s ride on PORT DOUGLAS (IRE) in the home straight where the colt appeared to be tenderly ridden in the final 100metres. They interviewed the rider and the trainer. They also received a report from the Veterinary Officer who confirmed that there were no post race abnormalities, and observations from the Handicapper. The rider again confirmed his instructions in that as the colt broke well and that he is a staying type, he was quite happy to make the running. The rider further added that the trainer always leaves it to him where to kick in a race. In explaining his ride in the final furlong, the rider stated that he had used his whip twice in his right hand and both times the colt lugged left in towards US ARMY RANGER (IRE). He therefore felt it prudent to put his whip down and to straighten up PORT DOUGLAS (IRE), as if he continued to use his whip he would have interfered with US ARMY RANGER (IRE). He therefore gave a hands and heels ride to the line. When asked about the amount of effort he made in the final 100metres, Heffernan stated that this is his usual style of riding and that, in his opinion, he had obtained the best possible placing. The trainer again confirmed these instructions, stating that he was satisfied that the ride given was in accordance with these instructions. Having heard their evidence and viewed recordings of the race the Stewards noted their explanations.

    Galileo Gold will not run in the Derby after tests revealed he wouldn’t stay the 1m 4f distance,

    Equinome tests – from the scientists at University College Dublin reavealed what I think some people knew already,
    What happened to good old fashioned using your judgement, this just underlines what I have said about Hugo Palmer all along, the man knows very little to be relying on scientists,
    Although I would agree with them as I was never convinced Galileo Gold would get the 1m 4f
    I even think Minding will struggle over that distance which is great for So Mi Dar

    I wonder what these scientists would have said about Golden Horn last year as the vast majority of people said he wouldn’t get the distance

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 7 months ago

      Sorry the tests said Galileo Gold had a 1% chance of staying 1m 4f

      • Profile photo of alex
        alex 7 months ago

        JohnB it’s actually less than 1% but who is splitting horse hairs…

        “Palmer told his Betfair blog: ” Nobody who witnessed the speed and power of Galileo Gold winning the 2000 Guineas will be surprised to learn that the result of his Equinome tests – from the scientists at University College Dublin – is what they call a ‘CC’.”

        He went on: ” This means that there is a less than one per cent chance of his optimum trip being a mile and a half and therefore, having consulted with Harry Herbert and Sheikh Joaan (of Al Shaqab Racing), I can reveal that the horse will not be running in the Derby.

        ” In many ways this is a relief, as if the results had come back a ‘CT’ then we may have faced a dilemma.

        ” Our priority is now to cement his position as a superstar miler and, all being well, we will now run in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, and hopefully then on to the St James’ Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

        “I can honestly say that I have never had a horse take a race so well as he has his Newmarket run. He has literally lost no weight, hasn’t left an oat, and looks a trillion dollars.”

        The victory was a landmark achievement for Palmer in claiming a first British Classic winner, and one he feels has helped calm any early-season nerves.

        He said: “I’ve been absolutely blown away by the support and the messages of congratulations, I still have over 150 messages that I’ve got to get back to but I will get through them all.

        “It is extremely exciting and hugely important for the yard when it has grown so significantly. It has settled a lot of nerves and no one can say in this early part of the season the yard can’t take the growth it has had.

        “For me and my team it is magic to have such a lovely group of horses at the end of the day.”

      That’s a good point JB, however I think Golden Horn had much more of a chance of getting the trip than Galileo Gold has.

        Elidor will have to step up for this John. I’m going to stick with Dartmouth, goes on the ground, fit and has a turn of pace. Best of luck.

    So it’s either Leopardstown or York for Idaho. 16’s is the best price now.
