Anyone else find that as soon as they give up on a horse it manages to win?!

Happened on the flat with Hoof It fairly recently, followed that one off Mt Everest and even down into the Mariana Trench, then as soon as I leave the horse along it gets smashed in for some big field handicap and won nicely, typical

The guaranteed strong gallup played right into its hands. The world and his wife at Leafy were on it. Same applies to Betsalottie in the second division.

Unlucky there BigField, but why drop it after the last run? Seemed a bit unlucky to me and I notebooked it.

really? I bet on the last run but was busy at work when the race went off, from what I saw though it was held up and just didn't have the cruising speed to get up there on the bridle and didn't have the pace once being ridden to catch up with those in front so just put the horse down as one that hasn't improved since its injury. Never watched that last run at Sandown again though just assumed what I saw briefly was to be taken on face value, what happened in that race that made you notebook it?

Travelled best 3f out the last run and would've gone very close with a clear run 1/2 furlong out, snatched up and finished with something in the tank.

well I must have been watching someone on the cameras 1/2 furlong out at Sandown because I never saw that haha

I think I am like cosmik debris. I'm on about Karam Albaari, last run was at lingers.

Well then you'll know all about my Hoof It pains then haha, can't believe they brought that horse back to win that handicap after so long.

And just read that Karam Albaari form, can't believe I missed that today, usually love an unlucky loser LTO and 9/2 seems a gift! Probably 6s on here or so

It's a bugger. I've noticed a few of my last bunch of deletions scoot in on the a.w lately.

I thought he had been running for the COral cup all season, I suppose he will still have an ideal weight of 145 ish, though he raced against an average field yesterday and really should only go up 4lbs imo.
