I can think of a dozen "questions" Stewards could be asking "leading" trainers before enquiring into the "improvement" of Country's Light.
Proper questions re the tailing out of horses  would be a good place to start.

The horse had done nothing but finish strongly in ALL(3) of his races....all on first time over 2000 metres on a big track.... go figure!!!
As the trainer said, they thought the horse would run I did and a few others.

Country's Light is a 2k weanling purchase and a half brother to Isopach.
I'm sure he'll be doing well in the 3yr old winter staying series in Victoria.....looks like the further the better.
Well done to all involved and I'll be sticking!

No harm in asking but nemisis has a point too in that normal improvement race to race to race for a staying type was shown.

It is why they turn up......

One could argue it is a fault in the ratings and handicapping systems that such is not assumed as normal..... and that is something that can be made use of.

They don't turn up in fact to get in the way as some allege.... when they have a prospect on their hands anyway.

Prizemoney top up for the Victorian Spring Carnival.

It will be quite interesting to see where the good horses are headed as pre post betting could be interesting especially with the sprinters.

I had Cabinho down as a really good wet tracker.
Was happy to take the early odds around $15 and $4 on the heavy track today..

Just prior to the jump Mick Price informs us the horse has a "kissing spine" in Mick's words..."it's careful, careful with him"
Finishes a well beaten 22 lengths last.
I'm just happy  I don't rely on one horse anymore....Sportsbet offered me $22 and $4 for Big Brew this morning..

That's one big difference about HK.
I can click on "trackwork records" and Veterinary  records......and make up my mind with the info I see.
