Pre-race comments from:

Angel’s Flight -“If Earth Were Flat, Would You Fall Off The Edge And Into Space?”

trouble racing – “Wont see the best of Empire of Dirt until the Emerald Shoe later next season. Feyman is my pick for this one.”

Bristol Turks – “I’m not sure what to expect from this race. Paranoid has had mixed results to date and his heat run was not great. Though that could be down to the jockey. A lot will depend on the going, especially with Beowulf in the field. A solid place for Paranoid would be a good result, anything better would be a bonus.”

Diamond-Stables – “If I’m being honest he is not really a chance. I’d be pleased with top 5 but I’m probably just there to help pay the others. It seems like it is a very even field (except mine dripping along behind them) so I wouldn’t be able to pick the winner.”

Get Square Lodge – “After a shocking run in the heat the stable are expecting no difference for the final. Maybe this stallion is thinking more about the girls than running….he could go on the open market very shortly but we are hoping for a better effort on Saturday.”

Burgersfortheboyz – “The Matriarch is a stalker so everything will depend on where she sits mid race. If she can position herself midfield she will give herself every possible chance. As always Angels flight will be the one she will have to run down.”

Frankel Farm – “Arguably, my best shot at a World Cup yet. Feynman scored a nice convincing win in the Heats and everything has gone according to plan since. Nevertheless, Beowulf always comes up with the goods on the big day while the likes of Big Bad Matriarch and Game On Dude will be no pushovers. We will have to earn this one.”
