Arsenal, I'm on holidays hence no public profile re Magic Fox.
I thought what I wrote prosecuted a solid enough case as to why there would be no stipes' mention of the winning performance.
What the Courier Mail tipsters select or what comment is written is not relevant.
The devil is in the detail or the SP's to be precise.
Why do you think it started $81 and then started $4.40. Isn't that bleedingly obvious.
To reiterate, the fact $10 was in the marketplace confirms the price assessors got it wrong on this occasion.
It's not their first time and won't be their last.
The favorites don't win every race.
Similarly, I would tip more losers than winners.
If you can strike between 35 and 40% strike rate with on top winners selected, you're going OK.
I have written this on more than one occasion in recent months that prices firming or prices easing does not necessarily equate to untoward activity.
Yes, sometimes it may,
But often it's the market correcting itself.
There were sufficient ticks in the right boxes to suggest Magic Fox should never have been put out at $10 in the marketplace.
Obviously most punters saw that as well, hence the $4.40 SP.
And let's not limit this scenario to Magic Fox.
You say Mishani Hustler "blew like a gale". Was it the right price in the first place ?
Betting fluctuations are simply a result of marketplace activity.
It's a false premise to suggest the fixed odds available on Wednesday or Thursday is the benchmark for post race opinion.
After all, those very fixed odds are only opinion.
