Ted,

I wonder if the jockey impact plays more of a role in the outcome of the these turf races than is usually the case. Obviously with the vast majority of racing over here being on the turf perhaps it does lend a tactical advantage?
I recall Frankie Dettori being slammed for one of his rides in the BC a few years ago on the dirt so perhaps there might be something in it.
Probably not enough to warrant an indepth study for two days racing per year!

Alternatively, it could be the Guinness, well for the Irish that is!
