UK Handicapper Also Praises Manduro
And British Horseracing Authority handicapper Dominic Gardiner-Hill told racingpost.co.uk: "Manduro was an exceptional horse in that not only had he registered a rating that made him the leading performer in the world this year, but also because he was so versatile as far as distance is concerned. It's very rare indeed for a horse to be given a rating of 124 for winning the Gr1 Prix Jacques Le Marois - a mark that makes him the highest-rated miler of 2007 - and also to indicate he might be a major contender for the Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe."
