An honest appraisal.

The bloodstock world is full of hype and exaggeration but one vendor who has shown refreshing honesty is Green Lane Farm, which is taking the unplaced point-to-pointer Radharc Nahabhainn to today's Brightwells Derby Sale at Ascot.

The catalogue page describes the five-year-old Saddlers' Hall gelding as "probably the slowest horse to come out of Ireland in recent years" and has a specific idea of a prospective purchaser, going on to say the horse would suit "a large, elderly lady/gentleman who would like to ride at a sedate pace".

Radharc Nahabhainn is among a catalogue of 214 horses in and out of training plus point-to-pointers for today's sale, which begins at 10.30am.
