Twilight Payment Information

History says it is very difficult to win back-to-back Cups. But history also once said you couldn’t win the race without a lead up run in Australia and that has been smashed in recent years. Times are changing and he is finding form at the right time. Has a good racing pattern and is tough. He’ll be hard to beat even allowing for the weight.

Gold Cup (4014m), June 17 2021, Royal Ascot, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

This was a brutally run affair won by the leader Subjectivist, who was given a 12/10 front running steer by Joe Fanning and was miles too good. Twilight Payment had his heart broken and just didn’t run the trip out.

Irish St Leger Trial (2816m), August 13 2021, Curragh, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

Dropped back in grade/depth/distance and bounced back to his best, sitting on speed throughout and finding plenty under pressure to get the job done in his first win since the Melbourne Cup.

Irish St Leger (2816m), September 12 2021, Curragh, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Sat on speed for most of the run before taking the lead early on in the straight where he was strongly challenged by Ebor winner Sonnyboyliston. Those two had a great struggle, with the latter getting the verdict, just, in what was a high class race.
