    Looked professional too didn't he (Tritonic)
    Given most of his best flat runs were on gd ground youd think there would be improvement to come on spring ground

    wish I had a docket with 50s on now

      ...that didn’t last long, Tritonic into 14-1. Looks like best priced 16-1 Sky.

      • Just watched the Tritonic race back. Initially I wasnt overly impressed with the Triumph in mind but have to say having watched it back I changed my mind and have added. Impressive finish and with better ground I think he still has value at the price.

          Agree I watched the Ascot races back last night and apart from Roksana (who was a class above in her race) Tritonic is the only horse to make up more than a length or so in the straight to win.

          • I'd agree as well. I thought he was quite impressive when the penny dropped that he had to go and win his race.

            It's hard to know how good he can be, but for a debut run that he can be expected him to improve for, I think that's up there with the debut's of the best of the Irish horses. His jumping was good too, which is a good sign.

            I'm not by any stretch saying he's the Triumph Hurdle winner. He's still got plenty to prove yet, but that was a debut full of potential.

            • Davy Russell interview on the FF podcast this week, asked who was he looking forward to riding most at the festival outside of Envoi Allen and immediately said Zanahiyr. Confirmed he will be riding him all going well for the festival.

                Don't think that's a surprise.

                When fit, he's ridden for these connections every time? (I think)

                  Yeah, the riding arrangements aside, I thought it was a great vote of confidence to Zanahiyr as perhaps their best prospect. I imagine he would be first preference for Quilixios if he wanted..

                    Yeah maybe.

                    I'm not sure it's that black and white in the yard. Jack Kennedy is not a 'number 2', .... he seems to get the Chevely Park hurdlers, and Davy the chasers

                    Jack having the ride on Quilixos wouldn't surprise me and if he had the choice, it might be he picked him anyway?

                    It might be a situation where it just fits in nicely that way around without rocking any boats?

                    I don't think Jack Kennedy is going to dig his heels in about rides, with the ones he already has, and the fact that when Davy goes (which won't be that long) he immediately becomes top dog... I don't think he'll be rocking the boat.

                    I don't have a point to make here I'm just rambling

                        • According to Gordon the plan is to run both Zanahiyr and Quilixios on Sunday, his comments on Quilixios I wouldn't forget about him- he's a very good horse. New fav for Triumph Sunday evening.

                          • Zanahiyr not entered this weekend. Quilixios leads the Gordy charge

                            • He usually sends the one he thinks is his best to the race. But I can't help thinking Zanahiyr has done enough now and Quilixios needs a race, so it may not be that straightorward this season. I hope it is though as I prefer Quilixios of the two.

                                That's how I'm reading it Spectre

                                Three from three for Zanahiyr, freshen up before the festival now.
