Primevil Posted February 1, 2013 Share Posted February 1, 2013 We all know about the horse being its best on the day, However sometimes the difference is maginal and it really comes down to a jockey being world class and one who thinks he is good until he comes up against someone who is just better at the sport. Today in the 3.45 Ling. Adam Kirby who has rode all before him over the winter, came up against the very best in a driving finish, and on 10/10 occasions this winter Kirby would have won the race because of the calibre he rides against, but today it shows why when the top races are on offer over the summer his agent finds it almost impossible to get him rides. Have a look at the race again, head on if you can, and Kirby thinks he has won at the 100 yards marker and tries just to push out to the line, Ryan Moore has other ideas and gets 4 cracks into his horse to win by a nose. Premiership V championship all day. If you have any examples thru the season were you see it, please put them up on this thread so we can review them, Thank You. Adam Kirby king of the all weather, but put in his place today by someone who vists occasionally. I hope Ryan Moore has a better season and luck than he had last year with injuries etc. Because when he is fit and other the horses, there is no better IMO.
