Little doubt that there shrewd money anticipating a poor display or dreadful jumping (it was a chasing debut) because the price drifted as if "you can back it at whatever price you like, we know we'll keep your money".

Disgusting chain of events ... but I doubt Paul Nicholls will have the guts to give any public explanation, either within his contract here at Betfair or to the racing media in general.

Yes I'm sure that Nicholls will send his  second jockey to ride a horse that cannot jump a fence or do you think the market was just adjusting it's chance.

If there's a market "adjusting" to the horse's chance, how come almost the entire adjustment here happened in just the last couple of minutes before the off ? !! ... that was much more a case of "we know it can't win" rather than an "adjustment".
