BTW just in case you missed it.Tango's comments were along the lines of "A simple scope etc etc and more than a tongue tie will be needed to get this donkey into the winners enclosure..As should be apparent ,a "simple scope" is not relevant.
At this time I do not know if the horse will have an operation or wear a tongue tie in his next race,if I hear I will let you know.One thing is for sure the horse is much better than you have seen so far.
He has no entries at this time but just in case I forget or can't post an update the horse is called Blakerigg,keep an eye out for him.
Some very selective quotes there, you left out the part about your mate having ridden him several times, i asked why he had not notices anything on the gallops, as they had just made it around the first corner of the race when the distress signs were shown and anyone who backed it knew their fate,
There is more than a wind problem if he is in trouble that early, they were just doing a light canter,
There is always the chance they were handicapping him on his third run, as he did seem to recover quite well after his wobble spell, before fading out,, and he was held up rather than rode prominently as your source had suggested, he was also pretty friendless in the live show despite being sent off FAV ,
Anyway it will be interesting to watch his next race, plenty on here will back him but not me, well maybe in running after the first half mile,
