This was touched on in another question here Why was the block time changed from 1 to 2 minutes? , and linked to this explanation. https://forum.getmonero.org/20/general-discussion/2401/increasing-the-block-time

Unfortunately smooth doesn't specifically spell it out, but my best guess is that ring signatures make reorganisations more difficult, which would make sense.
