||Field race centre track. Usable pace that put pressure on field enough to spread horses by ability unless had some form of excuse. First 14 in group wide across track from after 1F & less than 5L from leader to 14th. LOddy 4-5L off this Group after 1F & Mariachi Man around 10L off group in last.
Times over 1st 2 days of York Meeting not quick overall but various complaints about fast ground & 1 x NR here citing the fast going as the problem. More than 20 x NRs the day after this as there seemed to be a (somewhat ill informed) response to some complaints. Clerk Of Course insisted it was GF going and nothing unusual. This a solid time for this race with No Hubris winning in 2009 edition in 73.94s on GGF.
A race where you presume the distances back from the winner allow placing a Changeover Point (CP) & Garbage Gap. Jibaal is somewhere around the CP & 5L back from the 4th & suspect he might be a bit below Open Maiden winner class (OR75+). Elzaam is clearly Group quality and won this despite being green at various points and running a bit freely. Presume he will go to the Coventry Stakes and a very strong contender on this effort.
Sir Reg. a strong debut and presume OT90+ and should be a certain Open Maiden winner STO (as the trainer's runner-up in the race in 2009 was on the way to being well beaten in the Coventry).
Rerouted very green and made his ground initially when the pace was increasing. Did this comfortably. Not able to go with leading pair but keep going well and can improve. Presume OR85+.
Rojo Boy smaller and left behind by leading three and probably only OR70s and average chance in Open Maiden depending upon it's strength.
Jibaal quality depends how he progresses.
Another big Gap behind Jiball and the Garbage Gap and anything behind that needs a valid excuse to be better than OR60s or worse. Tinkertown look on the slow side and not real 6f.
Juliet Capulet big for a filly and big for her sire (small himself). Attended the pace comfortably but soon left behind as the 2F efforts went and then eased. O'Brien 2yos perhaps not really going yet. Obviously she is better than OR70 but how much better?
Mariaci Man finish with some Garbage but adrift in last early. Showed a knee action (KA) and moves like a galloper needing 7f+. Got into the well beaten horses by plugging on late. A good size and perhaps an 8f development type.
Comrade Bond and early Tompkins runner so will probably develop to win at some level. Attended pace ok here.
Most interest in the beaten horses probably in Move In Time. Trainer Smart said in interview in April he had a good 2yo by Monsieur Bond to run but was waiting for it to be named and owned. Presume Move In Time is that 2yo and a surprise to see it as long as 33/1. A good size and running freely early and jockey seemed to take his main job as teaching him to settle. The increase in pace in the race towards the 2F pole outpaced a number but this one still travelling Ok. Hung badly left when asked to make his effort but some progress until eased and drop back. Trainer said the good one was better than Boundless Spirit (runs tomorrow at Hmiltion on STO). Check this one NTO.
Windward Islands another moderate effort for a Zarooni 2yo. Outpaced and then a typical Dettori easing very early. Jockey occasionally look down but not report anything to the Stewards.
