Sorry Mick, the reason my post re selection of Insignia Of Rank has gone from before your post to after is because I deleted my original post to repost it with my other selection for today included instead of editing it. Trainer is capable of anything with his horses, It just jumped out at me today due to the way I like to have interest bets early on in the flat season, I wasn't even aware of the Lincoln angleHorsePunter i posted the below on another part of the forum yesterday lunch time so your above gives added interest. My knowledge of Irish form is limited so it was good to read your above trainer insight.
The one who caused me to go in for a second look in next Sundays Lincoln was Insignia Of Rank but he now runs in a listed race tomorrow (Naas 4.0) the fav is fc odds on and WH have Insignia @ 28/1 so it will come as no surprise if he runs another poor race. After 4 runs without i note the BL have gone back on, and his two most recent wins came with same. He has won a decent hcap off a 6 day break and is now back to a winsome mark so the Lincoln participation might still be viable. ?
Hi mlmrob I can see the attraction but a concern I would have is DV has only performed on firmer ground or standard AW - and according to Proform the Sire was not a lover of softer ground as well - is that something you would take into account generally?DARK VADER 3.00 NAAS
Dark Vader has form in the book that puts him well in by a few pounds here plus the WFA of 13lbs plus the 7lbs of the next superstar in Irish racing, Dylan Browne McMonagle, it is going to take a massive effort to beat him.
Thanks I was looking at HRB:
