  • I was on ja

  • Japan is your arc winner!

  • While James Doyle certainly went for home on Crystal Ocean a bit sooner than ideal, I'm not sure it was the early move that sealed Crystal Ocean's fate in the race as much as it was the weight for age break Japan was in receipt of for being a 3YO. In his 3 previous starts prior to this (Epsom Derby, King Edward VII Stakes & Grand Prix de Paris), you need only look back at the replays of all three to see that Japan was doing his best work at the business end of all three races, in the final two furlongs. In all three of those starts, Japan stayed on strong like a really promising young colt and saw out the 12f trip each time thoroughly. A little different for Japan here in the Juddmonte International though taking on older's for the first time. He showed he had the speed to handle the drop in trip from 12f to the extended 10f over a strong galloping track like York, and he showed some real heart and tenacity when he bowed his neck late for Ryan Moore and came back hard at the leader to get up for the win in the shadow of the post, and in Crystal Ocean defeating one of Timeform's highest rated older horses in the sport at the moment.

  • If I'd backed King Of Comedy for a place, I wouldn't of been happy with Dettori. He looked to stop riding and got nabbed for 3rd about 200 metres from the line.

  • Love to see Crystal Ocean in the Arc with maybe a bit more juice in the ground still believe he can run Enable close again

  • Crystal Ocean is better on a right hand track. He will be a big threat to Enable in the arc. I don't think Enable will be beaten though. The first three will be 1.Enable 2.Crystal Ocean 3.Waldgeist. same as in the King George.

    • @funee man It is and it's said in NH racing due to horses losing ground at each hurdle or fence when jumping left on a right-handed course or vice versa, which obviously isn't an issue on the Flat. Leaving aside Crystal Ocean has had almost half of his wins on left-handed courses like Newbury and Nottingham and his record going left-handed is 132112, or that he is 4 from 10 going right-handed, once a Flat horse comes off a bend then the run in is straight regardless as to whether the course is left or right. York has an around 5f straight and plenty of time for the final bend to be irrelevant and very unlikely to be the reason a horse gets beaten a head and especially when leading for much of the finish of a race.

    • @Sean Scanlon NO WAY SEAN!!!

    • That better on a right handed/left handed track trait is irrelevant in Flat racing.

  • Another thrilling finish to this great race. This race on paper was wide open. So it is one of the Galileo progeny, Japan that just prevailed Crystal Ocean, runner up yet again. There was a three way finish in 1998 won by One So Wonderful.

  • Good Lord, what a great finish!!

  • Saintly and Makybe diva warmed up in the plate as well but won it en route to the cup so one must assume it was there to win the plate misfortune cost it any chance in the cup but I digress the discussion has cured my insomnia thanks and goodnight

  • Not much between the first 3 and you could expect a different result in a rematch , Japan is a battler , Elarquam didn't get a smooth enough passage and Crystal Ocean needed a longer recuperation time from last race .

    • Oceallaigh Kly Good summary, I agree.

  • Can hear the despair in the crowd when the fav gets beat

  • What a boring race caller

  • King of Comedy is a hard one to work out, looking at his pedigree there is nothing that suggests he would have got the 10f but he kept on well there. he could be a money burner trying to follow.

    • He need's a very fast run race. He used up too much energy pulling.

  • Any person with a brain would have backed Japan as I did, was never gonna lose, no other horse with whatever jockey would have won that race , won a nice few hundred , come on guys, Japan was always gonna win

  • Dettori is much better than James Doyle and would have won that.

    • @Mikey Drake Smith Not trying to be a dick here but think you are maybe a little guilty of coming out with racing cliches there. All of those jockeys you mention also lost close finises and sometimes to each other, just as Doyle wins his fair share including when getting the better of some of those names too. Your timing is also a little unfortunate with his last 3 rides all being winners, and the previous half dozen winners to those included by a neck, ½L, a nose ¾L and a neck. He's also won 31 Group 1s and 110 Group races in total and you don't manage that and ride for owners like Khalid Abdullah and Godolphin and trainers like Appleby, Charlton, Fahey, Gosden, Haggas, Johnstone, Stoute and Varian if weak in a finish. Then if you look at some of his biggest wins like Al Kazeem winning the Prince of Wales's at Royal Ascot and the Tattersalls Gold Cup at Curragh both by a neck, or Ascot's Champions race on Champions Day on Nobel Mission by a neck (ironically from Al Kazeem) or one of the Al Maktoum Challenge races at Meydan on African Story by a neck or the Lockinge on Night Of Thunder by a neck, or the Brigadier Gerard on Western Hymn by a head (beating Ryan Moore on the fav and Frankie too) or the Ascot Gold Cup on Bigh Orange by a short head (beating Moore again on the fav) or the Great Voltigeur by a head on Old Persian and so on. Evan as recently as this season's Royal Ascot he won the Jubilee race on Blue Point by a head too.

    • @Sean Scanlon he isn't strong enough in a finish, as they say in the trade no lead in his pencil, you need a jockey in these high class races who is la creme de la creme in a finish Dettori is huge as is SDS and a lot of other top jockeys in the past fallon, pat eddery, piggott all masterclasses in tight finishes, they can get that extra 2% out of horses that no other jockey can, James Doyle isn't one of them and of course that is just my opinion, i appreciate every punter has his favourites, i also wasn't talking out of my pocket either as i didn't have a punt in the race just watched the highlights but i've never rated Doyle

    • Can either of you explain please exactly what Doyle did wrong, or is the fact that he was so narrowly beaten enough?

    • Only just seen the race and i couldn't agree with you more, Doyle has never been very good and is just used by Godolphin when Buick is injured, Dettori wins on it so would have SDS and a few other top jocks including the hit and miss Ryan Moore.

  • Not sure what Doyle's tactic was here?? Commit and get involved in a war from fully 3 furlongs out when you are sitting on the highest rated horse in training - didn't show any faith in the horses ability to sit in and come through in the last furlong to win. Dettori rides that he wins that comfortably and with little fuss. Doyle rides some really strange races and I wouldn't have a penny on him.

    • @Esther Dykes All other things being equal if he had of sat for another furlong. Thats what you dont understand. You're assuming everything else would have stayed the same if he sat for another furlong. How exactly do you know that?

    • @frizzy red Because he is sitting on the best horse in the race - he commits and takes a length or two out of everything in the field but then still has 2 furlongs to go. If he sat for another furlong he would have won that comfortably as he was the only one that actually quickened up.

    • why wouldnt he get involved 3f out? he stays a mile and a half so you cant say he didnt have the stamina for it. He had every chance to win, Japan just battled back, Doyle didnt do a thing wrong.

  • Japan has made steady improvement all season. Crystal Ocean was brave as that is what he is....brave. He's not outstanding. Both Japan and Crystal Ocean have proven they can run a mile 1/2 so they kept going to fight it out. Both enjoyed perfect runs throughout and there was not much change from the in running positions to their finishing positions, which says they didn't go overly hard in the run. The overall time backs this up. Circus Maximus doesn't get 10f.

  • Japan did not win the gallop out

  • Circus Maximus should stick to a mile.

  • シヴァルグラン残念でした😭でも、JAPANが勝ったのは日本人として嬉しいです😂

  • Another sucker punch from O'Brien against a horse obviously feeling the effects of a hard race against enable. I feel really sorry for crystal ocean, he led before the line and again just after the line but he's been beaten by a fresher horse not wearied by two hard fought battles at ascot since June. All credit to Japan but I think crystal ocean is a few pounds below his best here and you can see why Gosden has sidestepped this race for the Yorkshire oaks. He knows that you can't keep going to the well without expecting to find it dry at some point Crystal ocean deserves a rest now and he needs one if he is going to be at his best to win more group ones. I take nothing away from his performance today, his bravery was there for all to see in a slow run race that I don't think suited him but the sharp edge he showed at Ascot twice was missing today.

    • Well said .it had no turn of foot whatsoever it was Dolye was the last to go for the stick but it took all its time to get past CM .

    • jabhookjab cross Excellent, sensible summary my friend.

  • Crystal Ocean had a hard race at Ascot and he ran well below his best, today. Japan wouldn't get within ten lengths of Enable!

    • @Charlie M scary of these are plodders... Their rejects are cleaning up moat of our racing here in Australia. What on earth would these, the top tier do????!!!! Absolute annihilation

    • @C MM Aust The world's best tag horse is a joke. You could throw a blanket over them a furlong out. They were a bunch of plodders who showed the UK bias in ratings for all it's worth. Rubbish.

    • Hartnell didn’t improve five or six lengths in Australia he was just better suited to Australian race tracks and as a gelding there was more opportunity in Australia not to mention the better prize money same for avillius no match for cracksman but also no match for winx

    • @keith gould plodder????!!!! Mate!!!!! Horses WELL below his class in Europe ran 1,2,3 in Caulfield Cup!!! Yucatan who's not even Irish group 3 was ridden hands and heels and had to be pulled up in a race in Melbourne. Avilius was 4-5 lengths behind Cracksman and is capable of beating anything here. What on earth???!!

    • @keith gould by that reasoning Hartnell improved 5-6 lengths in Australia

  • I was on King Of Comedy, and he ran a blinder. Nice win for Ballydoyle.

    • Frankie looked liked he stopped riding inside the last half furlong for some reason.But,he has run a blinder.

  • Japan won the beresford stakes at 2 as sea the stars (winner of international stakes 2009). I always thought he ran better on 1m2f than on 1m4f.

  • Still can't watch it again .probably never will ....I hate losing like that even more then I like winning

    • Harpal Chauhan how much did u have on then😂😂😂😂

    • Wayne Harrison dick head

    • Wayne Harrison fuck off

    • @Jamie Watts what a bellend

    • Yep. Writing was on the wall. I new I would lose on this horse again. Best horse. Just doesn’t want to put his head in front. Avoid.

  • elargam definitly up to this level i think he would have won if he wasnt in the rail.worlds highest rated horse keep losing and only win one group one ithink they rate him only for king george stakes its not fair on other hirses rated way below then him.

  • A hard race like that will comeback to hurt CO. Especially if the Arc is in consideration. All out to pass a pacemaker who was digging deep.

    • @Adem Oezdemir me neither am hoping someone will explain them to me ,ran in the St Leger stays 12 furlongs on soft but he crawled round .it dosent smell right

    • I don't ever want to watch the race again .your right all out to get past the pacemaker ..like a gut punch to me right now .it looked slow as a old boat a horrible race tactically they all finished within 4 lengths of each other so they must of gone slow .it was still travelling better than anything if I remember but looked like a 3 mile chaser when asked to quicken

    • @Adem Oezdemir they played him like a fiddle. Great job by Don Obrien. Made him commitntonthe pacemaker too early and Ryan pounces on him

    • I dont understand this tactic from doyle.
