Who cares ? Does any serious punter take any notice of this mounting yard drivel ? It is usually conducted by some former second rate jockey or the like. Dave Whimpey wouldn't have a clue. He would be flat out knowing which end the feed goes in. Listening to that garbage is like watching the half hour before a football match starts . It is simply irrelevant padding before the real deal gets underway.
Geezus gunbower. Let us know what you really
think will ya
It is not all drivel. They will tell you if a horse is playing up or is sweating too much generally I find these horses do not perform - generally - not all the time.
Also most of them can recall seeing them the last time they paraded and are not afraid to say if they look better or worse.
I particularly like the interviews with the trainers and jockeys pre-race. They all seem pretty genuine to me.
Libby Hopwood who does the NSW country form on Formlines (not from the mounting yard ? one of your second rate jockeys) has a win strike rate of around 40% with her selections.
You can choose not to listen to them or you can listen to them. No one is forcing anyone to back their tips.
Well done to Lizzie in spotting the longshot on Saturday.
