Nathaniel On Par With Best in Champions Series
Remarkably, the official British Horseracing Authority performance rating for Nathaniel’s Coral-Eclipse victory on Saturday was 124, exactly the same as the rating for the winners of the three earlier middle distance Group 1 contests in the 2012 QIPCO British Champions Series.
Camelot clocked 124 in the Investec Derby, St Nicholas Abbey did the same in the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup (sponsored by Investec) and likewise So You Think in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes.
Nathaniel’s 124 was two pounds below his best to date, the 126 he clocked in last year’s Betfair King George, but it was an outstanding performance considering it was his first run of the season following illness in the spring.
The veteran Twice Over ran his best race of the season with a performance rating of 117 in third place. However, that is still two pounds below his current official rating of 119 and well below the 125 he achieved when winning the Juddmonte International last year.
