SA Issue 95 July 5 2001 Royal Ascot
From the same subversive whose moles extend to every county and parish in the Emerald Isle, came the strongest information of the week. Apparently confidence in Johannesburg representing the Tabor/Magnier/O’Brien combo was sky high and the juvenile colt went off one of the best backed horses of the week. The clear paddock pick, he looks a ‘machine’ and should do well in his first year. It is early days as far as next term is concerned but already the right noises have been made for the Two Thousand Guineas.
