Or maybe the horse will flop again, justifying the trainer and jockeys comments last time ?

I have a longish list of reservations about this horse today - but I have still made it the foundation (banker) in a pile of each-way (place focused) shop bets. I have it at about 1.33 to place (assuming all 8 run!) so at 4/1 a fifth the odds (1.80), I have (probably foolishly) disregarded all of my reservations.

The market (on here) currently hates it!

The market (on here) has updated it's hatred of this horse, to full-scale loathing! Shocked

The betting would suggest not today thank you but we shall see.
Report The Management May 22, 2023 1:26 PM BST
The win price seems about right to me (after the drift) tbh - My bets are all framed around it placing only and it's a bit of a leap to have it down as the winner. The place market drift is much more of a concern as the relationship between the two is not necessarily linear in this type of betting heat.

As I said, I have a pretty long list of reservations about the horse - but the place market hating it is now top of that list above... the hanging, the two wind op's, the jockey, etc.

2.28 for 2 places is worrying for anyone wanting to get involved.

Finish up with no boots on trying to second guess these sort of trainers.

Held up in rear, headway 3 out, soon nudged along, went third but hung left after 2 out, went second final 110yds, no match for winner, eyecatcher (jockey said that his instructions were to drop in and get gelding to settle, take his time and creep into the race to try to finish in best possible position, having previously made a respiratory noise; he explained that having jumped slowly away in the hope to get gelding to settle and allow gelding a better view of hurdles, he became outpaced in early stages; he added that he felt it prudent to keep a hold of gelding's head after it had started to make a respiratory noise in back straight, a matter in which he reported at scales, in order to get gelding to finish his race; he further stated that gelding had started to hang and jump left-handed from bend turning into home straight and felt that when he was able to get gelding to race without hanging as badly, winner had gotten away from him and that he could not have made up the ground between them; therefore, he believed that gelding had obtained his best possible placing; trainer confirmed instructions given to jockey and added that he was satisfied with ride in the circumstances as he felt that gelding had been hanging badly left-handed; vet said a post-race examination failed to find any abnormalities, however a second examination revealed gelding to have slight heat in his left-fore) (op 5/1 tchd 13/2)

Will probably say it didnt get the extra half mile and the race came a bit too soon.

Not really one for conspiracies but 1.54 for 3 places told it's own story (imo).
Report SlippyBlue May 22, 2023 1:47 PM BST
They got the 4 place as well @ BSP 1.30

Never tried an ounce, thoroughly rotten.

I believe the horse can win a race over 2M - 2M2F at this level !

The Henderson horse today, is way above this level.
Report The Management May 22, 2023 1:55 PM BST
If they geld him (again!), give him another couple of wind-op's and some headgear, he will win a low-grade handicap imo. And the same might also work on the horse!

Race 1 - 1:35pm

Following the race, Rex Dingle reported that HARRYS GAME, placed second, hung right-handed, Dylan Kitts reported that JET OF DREAMS (IRE), unplaced, hung badly left-handed and the Veterinary Officer reported that ORANGE GINA, unplaced, lost its right-fore shoe.

Stewards need to look seriously into that - I thought the horse hung right Laugh

When a horse holds its head to the right, as Jet Of Dreams was doing, it hangs left.

If the upper part of its body (head and neck) go one way, because something is hurting, then the bottom half (the body and legs) are forced to go the other way to compensate. Horses aren't made of elastic.
