Appropriate name?

40/1-13/2

Against Mullins and Elliott for a trainer who has likely never had a winner before. This would be a fair way to start.

You do wonder who initially sparks off something like that because on that evidence the initial 40/1 was too short. He has a very ordinary pedigree, was weakening in third when falling at the last in an ordinary point, and from what we could see of his antics doesn't look the full shilling. There was next to nothing to recommend him. Yes, some will follow the move at shorter prices, but someone has to initiate it.

On a quiet Sunday of poor quality racing its easy for some bright spark in a bookies trading room to notice the name Curley Stroke and shorten it up to make it appear theres a gamble going on, then a few people notice the possible connection and have a few pounds on, all of a sudden theres a wholesale gamble on it, and bookies lay a horse they probably wouldnt have taken a penny for at a really short price, easy money really.
Havent looked at todays.

Still being cut to 5/1 an hour before the race, then kicked out to any price about 20 minutes later.

Never out of the last four, and eventually all out to beat one home.
