There seems to be a pattern developing methinks!

Someone they all uniformly seem to be ridden right out of their ground

Same as when Holly is riding the stable runners and with the same results and the whip action while pulling the horse right to make it look like it is hanging is plain to see

Hi layall,
I am afraid I don't have a "list".  What I meant to say is - somehow they invariably seem to drift markedly in the minutes before the off, having been backed heavily all day.  During the race, Harley appears to stick them right out of their ground, whilst the race is going away or taking shape away from them, they come with a sweeping run, which they never seem to have a chance of sustaining.  When one spends and inordinate amount of one's time watching the racing, one soon clicks onto these patterns.

Don't disagree at all......makes me wonder though how the drift happens in the last few minutes......who becomes in the know after they leave the paddock.....is it after the connections have spoken to their jockey who has heard something in the weighing room to change their mind about backing theirs and hence on a recovery mission? ....who knows

Harley is only riding to orders , unless anyone thinks the owners and trainer are happy to throw away their hard earned and keep putting him up.

THE DAILY WORLD CUP SPECIALS AT 188BET FILLIES' HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 5) (A Jockey Club Grassroots Middle Distance Series Qualifier)

NAQAAWA (IRE) wore earplugs.


Following the race, the representative of Alan King reported that GIVING GLANCES, placed fifth, was unsuited by the ground, which was officially described as Firm (Good to Firm in Places) on this occasion, and would prefer an easier surface and the representative of Mick Channon reported that CAN CAN SIXTY TWO, placed sixth, was unsuited by the ground, which was officially described as Firm (Good to Firm in Places) on this occasion, and would prefer an easier surface
