Letter: Bad ride to blame?
PAUL HAIGH covers some ground in his search for an explanation for Deep Impact's Arc defeat (November 10) - it may be this or it may be that.
This is a horse almost all of whose form comments begin "held up" and/or "in rear". Where does his jockey have him on his big assignment - right up on the pace. So how about: "It may be that he suffered from a bad ride."?
P.S. It's one thing Arkle being mentioned in the same sentence as Phar Lap, but Deep Impact does not even belong in the same paragraph.
