2 – High Definition – Draw 1

·        2 good races and 2 not so good races

·        Jockey stated he was hampered early the races – toss it out

·        Winner of that race went on to win in France – Hurricane Lane

·        Finished third in not so good race 2 back but lost pace early and then didn't get going late – lost to Hurricane Lane that time too

·        Just needs a better trip

·        Aiden O'Brien trained Ryan Moore up

 

3 – Scope – Draw 2

·        Time away after losing the right hind shoe in his last race. Still finished third

·        Beat the running up in the Irish Derby in his maiden win

·        He's Newmarket race was an adventure, hung right at later stage in the race, racing green?

·        Needs some racing luck and hope the layoff did the trick to improve his racing style

·        4th to Hurricane Lane in last in France, move up during the running of the race but didn't finish the final furlong

·        Average race vs the boys (Mishriff and Adayar)

·        Needs to be more forwardly placed to do her best running
