There's a reason Matt Paget rides in the bush  :shutup:

Check out the ride in r5 Port Macquarie on the short priced Quick Nick. Gave it zero hope that with ride, gassing it before the bend. Amazed it held on so long to finish where it did  :dry:

Quick Nick ĖAn inquiry into the tactics adopted by the rider M Paget was opened and adjournedto a date to be fixed.

 :chin: Haven't seen anything so far?  :shrug:

M Paget , proven culprit need another 50% on any of his mounts to make them a remote betting proposition. Found another one at Bowen Today . H English . Trainer must have told her when he legged her on ; that she was about to sit on Manikato. That was the way she rode one in the fourth. The problem is that with all these extra race meetings they are licensing people who are really work riders at best.

Jon Allen on Jumbo Ozaki inR2 at Flemington today absolute slaughter...... looking at the stewards vision there was a clear run about the 200m but instead of taking it he reefed the horse out wide caused interference and got 11 meetings..... this horse would have remained unbeaten with a better ride.

Watch Zac Parton in the 9th at ShaTin on no 6 Uncle Steve.

If it was a G1 race, he might have pushed out or eased a bit to race on the outside.

Watch the ride on Press the Petal in race 7 Ascot.

Drifting favourite and sits 3 deep entire journey without moving at any stage to sit outside the leader. Then swings even wider around home turn.

Bad error of judgement.

I doubt whether this rates as the worst ride ever.

However, Liam Riordan's ride on Reef Master in the first at the Sandown Hillside Track today surely must go down as the worst ride today.

I reckon he tried for the same run in the early part of the straight 3 times. Why he did this is beyond belief. There were no horses on his outside yet he kept trying to take a run between 2 horses where clearly there wasn't one. Eventually he decided to give up on the run and went around the 2 horses.

Too late- Reef Master ran on very well for a very nice 4th.  I notice that Riordan has ridden over a hundred winners - god knows how if this ride is an indication of his skills.

I repeat 3 times he went for this same run which wasn't there. Once could perhaps be excused as he still claims 3Kgs in town -the other times have to be classified as being incompetent.

I don't know whether the ride made the steward's report but it sure should have.

The only mention in the stewards report was Reef Master - slow to begin.

It as a bit odd but I suspect the nag had something to do with it. He certainly was getting his head up high
Once he flattened out he ran on well.

Wily,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as I made far more for Pikes second yesterday than I would have made for the win.

Think he's trying to find another Bernborough or Winx the way he loves a late finish......

Wily,  I sort of feel your pain even though I was on the winner (but not for much ). I established a rule a few years ago that if I throw my hard earned on these work riders I deserve what I get. I now avoid them at all costs unless their mount is double the odds I assess.
The one in question should be riding at Leeton, Balranald ,Hay etc  not TAB meetings.

Watch the ride on Race 2 no 3 at Muswellbrook Today. These are the sort of jockeys that should be riding in non - TABs in four horse fields in the outback. Not a clue.

The horse wouldn't run straight.

She just about wanted to take the gap sideways.

Think you're a bit tough, gun.

JWH, They are meant to be riding them not just sitting there as dead weight. More interesting was how he was outridden coming to the turn which forced him into that position in the first place.

so the idea is to back a G1 jockey on a five buck chance
although i'm off the punt at the moment
I still stick to my rules
gate
price
jockey
trainer

Yes I can see why you were disappointed.

I went back for her last two rides on the same horse and neither time did she "pull the persuader".

So my guess is that's what comes with the territory when you take advantage of her 3 kg claim.

Thanks, glad I wasnít imagining it. It can happen when youíve got a 5k multi riding on it  :shutup:

Watching that she was at least urging the horse on but I'd say she's been told not to pull the whip  :shrug:

Iíve had massive doubts about J Collett in a number of areas after watching him closely for sometime.
In regards to incompetence, feast your eyes on his ride on Matowi in the 3rd at Canterbury


Oh and by the way, the stablemate saluted  :lol:

Wily , It appears this mob can do what they like. Sat three wide at the rear of the field for the entire distance. Thought there was a rule about giving them every possible chance to win. How the hell was that going to happen given that ride ? Of course no questions asked . Look at J Ford on one in the second. Surprise it is a stablemate. He rides it like a 3kg claimer. Then so called champion jockey T Berry rides another stablemate in Race 4 where it looks like he was waiting for someone to ring the bell lap before eventually put the horse into the race. This mob are making D Weir look like a saint.
