Disclaimer is currently available at 2015 The Metropolitan odds of $81, but co-trainer Peter Snowden is confident that the imported stayer can produce an improved performance in the Group 1 event at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Disclaimer started his preparation with a flat effort in the Listed Winter Challenge (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens and he failed to improve when he was stepped up in distance for the Listed Wyong Cup (2080m) on September 4 and the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) on September 18.

Snowden admits that Disclaimer’s form looks fairly average on paper, but he believes that Disclaimer has had plenty of excuses during his campaign to date and he is hopeful that the Dansili gelding can return to a semblance of his best form in The Metropolitan.

“He will take his place there,” Snowden told Racing Ahead.

“On paper it looks as though he has had a few ordinary runs, but he has had some genuine excuses in a form of them.

“Last start in the Newcastle Cup he was posted three or four deep for the entire run and he had a wipe out for mine.

“He has done well since and Tim Clark had a feel of him yesterday morning and he just felt terrific.”

Disclaimer was allocated barrier six when the 2015 The Metropolitan field was released earlier this week and Snowden believes that is the perfect draw for the six-year-old.

Snowden feels that jockey Tim Clark will have plenty of options in the early stages of the race and he is hopeful that the Newcastle Gold Cup winner will be given every possible chance to show his staying credentials.

“With a better draw on Saturday I certainly think it will help his chances,” Snowden said.

“I would think that he would be midfield with cover.

“It would be the perfect spot.

“There is not a lot of speed in the race, but I think that there is enough that it will be genuinely run and that draw gives him options.

“He can get cover and put him to sleep and a mile and a half will not be a problem for him.”

Godolphin-owned Magic Hurricane is currently available at 2015 The Metropolitan odds of $4 with Ladbrokes and he is a clear favourite from David Hayes-trained Almoonqith ($6.50), Macedon Lodge-owned Chance To Dance ($8.50), Group 1 winner Beaten Up ($8.50), Newcastle Cup winner Beyond Thankful ($11) and consistent import Orbec ($11).

    I and my friends ended up checking out the best thoughts on the website then at once got a terrible feeling I never expressed respect to the web site owner for those techniques. The people were certainly glad to study them and have in effect without a doubt been making the most of them. We appreciate you truly being well helpful and for figuring out such impressive issues most people are really needing to know about. My very own sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

    pisze:Tak na szybkiego, to przychodzi mi do głowy rozwiązanie na dwóch przełącznikach. Jednym by się wybierało, czy ma grać jedno wyjście, czy oba jednocześnie, a drugim wybierałoby się które wyjście ma grać, jeżeli pierwszy przełącznik jest ustawiony na tylko jedno wyjście.I wtedy oba przełączniki działałyby już jako przełączniki, a nie przyciski (czyli bez wyciągania tego mechanizmu) :)

    Zenyatta is the GREATEST race horse of all time. There is not a horse more exciting then BIG Z. Her greatest race was was the one that got away from her. If they raced 100 more time she would win them all. Zenyatta’s gentle, sweet,personable,charming and loved by so many people . I don’t think we will ever see a greater champion then THE GREAT ZENYATTA. She had more to show us. I think she was capable to rev it up a notch or two.

    That’s an interesting reaction. Having been in some pretty fierce conversations about the role religion plays in violence, I understand completely someone questioning whether we’d be better off without religion, entirely. Would those violent extremists be violent, anyway? And are they just using religion as an excuse? I think so, but.
