Shinn does it again.....,
Once again Purton hops off after 2 losing rides on a horse and Shinn gets the ride and wins.....
ps some people are slow learners...
To be fair that's hardly a good example fours.
It was a low grade, C4 mile race with the field comprising of maidens or horses who had won 1 / 2 or 3 from 10 / 20 or 30 starts, hardly consistent animals. I'd marked 4 in the race and still couldn't narrow it down so gave it a wide berth.
The winner is talented but is known to be quirky, even yesterday he shied at something around the 150m mark. His gear changes over the last 4 starts have been -
4 back - Crossed Nose Band
3 back - Crossed Nose Band + Sheepskin Cheek Pieces
2 back - Crossed Nose Band + Shadow Roll (cheek pieces off)
yesterday - Crossed Nose Band (Shadow roll off)
So they have been trying everything.
Fields like that are more hit & hope than anything else imho.
