Stupid race for him.

The horse is far superior to his trainer.

The fact he hasn't seen further than 7 furlongs in 6 starts is baffling

It is bordering on disgraceful.

Despite the defeat of Fifty Stars, who was purchased by Gerry Ryan when unraced in Ireland, Weir said he was pleased enough with the performance to finish second to Manuel but said he still needed to work on the horse to improve his racing manners.

"Last time in he used to be a very difficult horse," Weir said of the son of Sea The Stars.

"He used to be very aggressive and want to get things done too quick so we've concentrated on getting him to switch off and do all the right things, but it's sort of gone the other way now.

"Johnny (Allen) said he might need working in company now to get him hard and fit.

"It's all a bit trial and error but I'm not one bit concerned. He had a beautiful day out and he'll come on from that."

Fifty Stars had won four of his first five starts out to 1400 metres but Weir said the horse is certain to learn from Wednesday's defeat and would have another chance to shine this spring.

Just checked his breeding. Sea The Stars out of Sadlers Wells mare. Suggests 2400m+.

Sea The Stars has had maybe...7 horses ever to win at 1200m or below. It's something crazy like that. Out of like 250 odd winners.

How good will he be when he goes to 1600M and beyond?

Hopefully he is not sick of it all by the time he gets there.

It is almost as though they run him in races a minimum of 200m short of where he should be.

Their target is apparently the Railway in Perth. This would be fine if he was first or 2nd up but with that race 5 and a half weeks away and him likely to have 2 or 3 starts before than he is going to be too dour.

Maybe he’ll have s break and go to the Railway Stakes 1600m as the first start of a summer campaign that would be followed by the Kingston Town 1800m & the Perth Cup 2400m. Those latter races would qualify him for the major Cups in Spring 2019.
