Message: Leave the training to the trainer. He is the one that has done the hard yards, picking up sh&t, working in stables, waking up at 4am for years on end, gaining his license and now training.
For your information, the horse has been working very lazily, blinkers and a few other gear changes didn't change his attitude. To the outsider it looked a bit odd that Dunn gave him a really good rev up down the straight and gave him a good belting. This was because the horse is being lazy and they wanted to jazz him up a bit for his first up run.
Just do what you do best and sit in that arm-chair mug punter.
Message: aAbloke i know owns a horse in the same trial and he said undoubtedbly was in awesome form and that kavanagh couldnt be more happy with it....ive been told to get on it first up as the only reason it didnt do any good last prep was the conditions and conditions only.
It needs firm going...that whole lazy thing is a load of hogwash
Just so happens my best mate works for Kavanagh, so you can put the hogwash theory in your pipe and smoke it arm chair punter.
And to Mooksta...
The only reason I AM NOW rude is because over a period of 5 years I have witnessed time and time again losers on this forum thinking they know better than professional trainers. It makes me laugh.
What would you say if you were a chef and Mark Kavanagh posted on Chef's weekly telling you how to cook? It's just absolutely laughable.
You blokes think you know something about an art that you have no idea about. Just because you 'punt' on horses does not mean you have any idea how to train them nor have any reason to question Kavanagh's training tactics of the horse.
Message: This whole topic takes me back to the time that some of the arm-chair trainers on this site were trying to tell me that Robbie Liang could not get Pantani to win first up over 32oo metres on 1000 metre gallops.
Let's just cut a long story short and i'll just say he duly saluted.
Message: And I never said anything about last prep Cummo, I never said he was veing lazy last prep mate. All I said was he is being lazy in his recent trackwork which is why they did what they did in the trial, so the conditions you speak of last prep that didn;t suit him have nothing to do with this topic.
Message: big deal that your mate works for kavanagh?? did i questions his training techniques or ability?? no i dont think i did...all i said is that a bloke i know was watching his horse battle boy trial in the same race and from the reaction he seen of the kavanagh camp and from what he was told...they were extremely happy
