Only one selection thus far. Wyong Race 2 #3. Next BR2 #1 and #5.Next in Geelong Race 4 #12, then Wyong 5 #1 (maybe) and #3.
That's all. The usual complaint against backing roughies is that there are too many bets. Hmmm. Yesterday there were 4 First Starters (or 5, depending on what's a roughie). It looks like about 2 (or3) per meeting. Is this too many?
Gallopers. You may be misunderstanding me. A first-starter can be the favourite (or near) or a rank outsider. The one which is a favourite is STILL an unknown race quantity. That the bulk of money is on that one is the wishful thinking,,,the $100 trying to win $400 is much more wishful thinking than $4 at 100-1.
Also. Be careful about jumping to conclusions. Do the maths. For Wyong race 2 #3, there was about $2500 on it in Victoria...$3000 in NSW....$2000 Unitab. How much was from the connections? To have made it a near fav the connections would have to have bet up to $50,000 TAB-wide. Isn't $8000 (if it were the connections) enough? Still sure they weren't betting? How do you know?
