Peter Mair, you are on your old chestnut about field sizes again. I totally agree. I want match races from here on in, that's right 2 horse fields and if the result doesn't end as it should be according to Mair and Monty they will have to declared a no race.
Will you be happy then?
Peter, wake up and realise that the form in Sydney leading into yesterday has been mixed mainly due to bottomless tracks at Rosehill on the previous two Saturdays.
Also remember that trainers set their horses to peak for certain races. That's why people take the time to watch replays and do their form in depth and not just listen or read what urging journalists have to say. They actually do okay at the punting caper.
Not all horses can peak start after start. Let's look at Bart's Melbourne Cup winners. He would plan to have them right on the day. They might look average in some lead up events but he was setting them for the Cup. He wasn't pulling them up in their lead up races and the true form students that knew that Bart's horses were being set for one particular race would then access if they had in fact done enough in their lead up races.
Bart didn't get it wrong too often did he Peter?
The one thing that I do see that could be improved is some jockeys don't seem to have plan B or plan C when the pace of race doesn't pan out as everyone thought it would.
The Chairman's Hcp yesterday over 2600mts was a crawl for the first 1900mts and when you see Zac Purton on Kinema back last and completely pulling it's head off you do ask why on hell don't you slide around and sit outside the leader where the horse will be happy.
Peter, the other area you don't seem to give enough thought to is horses that are over the odds. If you take the time you will find horses that you will access that are well over the odds.
Example yesterday was the winner of the Inglis Sires at Randwick. Invader missed the Slipper that was run on a complete bog and went into the race yesterday with fresh legs. I accessed him at $4.00 and got $8.50 about what I rated the best bet of the day.
Peter, at the end of the day it's horse racing, it will throw up the odd surprise result, it will have horses improve dramatically as they can't tell us that they felt off the start before.
Peter, have you ever had a massive win?
If so why didn't you hand it back as by all your posts there must have been some type of rort involved. Or was it just you and Monty that were in the know so that made it okay?
