I have long complained about the laziness of the flat handicapper and his just handicapping by ratings,this caused great mirth for Paddywhacker and the usual Redbait quote " a new low for the forum" but hard as it is to credit the National Hunt handicapper is just as bad.He doesn't view the races just lazily presses his rating button and there is his handicap.I should probably be staying quiet because there is hay to be made but the trick is get your horse handicapped switch codes and race away while you are not racing you are going down the weights,it can be either way but mostly Chasers going back to hurdling.We see it going on week in week out yet when Bog Warrior reverted to hurdles did the handicapper review his form no he just pressed his trusty old button and out came the old hurdle rating,result a solo for him and all behind him being given no chance.

Wildman, I noticed Romanesco was 14lb well in today compared to his chase mark and runs a stinker, I'd be enclined to put that down to the sleeveen trainer involved rather than its revert to the smaller obstacles, won a novice h/cap hurdle at Perth in Sept.

Ran a stinker when fav at Navan before running a blinder to finish r/up to Colbert Station in the Paddy Power at xmas.
I notice the horse holds an entry in a class 3 h/cap chase at Catterick on Monday, whether he takes up the entry I'm not sure?, but it will be interesting to see how he performs if he does?.

Quartetto was 15lbs lower over hurdles than fences as well today and got beaten a HD, they don't always translate the improvement they have shown over fences back over hurdles hence the 2 different marks

Romanesco was 19lbs well in compared to his chase mark.His run was too bad to be true.I thought it was an unusual purchase by Gigginstown.I would imagine a handicap chase at the festival was the aim hence the entry at Catterick.They would be keen to see what mark he gets over there.I think Fahamore was entered in Musselburgh last Sunday with a similar purpose in mind.

Could be right tolmi, makes a lot of sense.

Premier, at least Quartetto was very competitive, Elliots could barely raise a gallop, I'm sure those people who took the short odds were blissfully unaware that they were going to be well and truely shafted today.
Not exactly very strong in the market either for a horse so well in.

Oh here we go again this mysterious respiratory infection has surfaced again, only ever seems to effect these hot favs?, was it Mullins Champagne Fever who somehow managed to contact it as well.

theres nothing mysterious about that, it often happens.
you would have to scope beforehand to find out and you cant blame trainers for not doing that as i believe it can make a horses throat quite sore and i suppose if that happens could also bring on an infection.

I'm sure most horses are scoped before they go racing don't you think?.

Local trainer at local track, not sure who the vet is that is on duty, but most probably a well known local?.

Forgive me for been sceptical, you would want to be pretty naive to take every excuse you hear at face value in the murky fenced off world of Irish horse racing.

Summer Star is a good example of the laziness of the handicapper,this mare won her two bumpers was then beaten in a third by Glens Melody,she then ran in a hurdle race in Sligo where she was never put into the race,this was followed by a debacle at the start of a Limerick maiden hurdle.
Her next few runs are so bad you would have to question what was going on but because our handicapper does it solely on ratings he believes it and gives her a 98 rating result a return to form and gamble landed.
I didn't back it as I wasn't sure it was a going day but at least Workrider was on.
Report Tolmi February 11, 2013 8:52 AM GMT
I don't think there was any gamble landed.I had her earmarked as a possible touch when I saw the entries and was waiting to get any encouragement at all from the market.There was none and she was available for plenty at a double digit price a couple of minutes before the off returning a betfair SP of 11.

The handicapper can only handicap her on what she has achieved over hurdles.It is not in his remit to handicap her on her bumper form.Indeed she had a mark prior to her last maiden hurdle run which was strange as I had thought they would run her in a handicap as soon as she got her mark.
Report wildmanfromborneo February 11, 2013 8:59 AM GMT
He could disregard her runs when she was blatantly not trying.
There is a grey area here as I think he has some discretion but I would certainly welcome Stellar Manipulators view and indeed some clarification from yourself Tolmi.
I would say there was a monster corpulent gamble on it with the price of a Maltese Falcon being earned.

If there was a gamble landed where was the money put on?As I said there was plenty available laying it on here at a double digit price which is inconsistent with a gamble being landed.

While I agree with your point about disregarding runs it is the stewards who should be acting if there were blatant non triers.I recall a Tom Costello horses many moons ago who the handicapper would not give a mark to until it had run about 8 times...Possible Precis was its name.Still hacked up when the cash was down.

Report STELLAR MANIPULATOR February 11, 2013 9:06 PM GMT
Tolmi is right when he says that the handicapper can only go on the evidence of the formbook but WMFB is also correct in suggesting that the Handicapper has some discretion on whether to handicap a horse like Summer Star or not and obviously inaction on the part of the Stewards would surely play a factor in that ? The problem with raising Colbert Stations hurdle mark after he improves over fences is that he has got beaten off marks of 114.115 and 119 in handicap hurdles (before his recent win off 119). If he does what WMFB suggests and raises the horse a stone or two over hurdles on the basis of his improved chase form , I would have thought that Ted Walsh would have an open and shut handicap appeal on that reassessment in the absence of the express discretion the BHA Handicappers have to do just that ( and which the Turf Club handicappers dont have ). So it is not laziness on their part , simply an appreciation of what you are allowed to do and what you are not allowed to do. And trainers can and do appeal in these situations as I am led to believe DKW did in relation to Vintage Crop when NOB apparently reassessed his hurdle mark after he improved massively on the flat . ( I think he won too )
Report wildmanfromborneo February 12, 2013 11:38 AM GMT
Thanks for the civil reply.
If the handicapper has no discretion then what is his function,any low grade clerk could submit all racing results into a computer and come out with a rating,that is actually what I think the handicapper does.
Horses that are obviously not trying are given a rating that reflects there actual finishing position,he doesn't seem to review the races.
I accept that he doesn't have the same discretion as his counterparts in Britain but he should have,he also never looked for it because that would entail some extra work.
His other great failing is when he gets a chance to rectify a mistake he never does it as he sees it as some kind of slur on his work.

I highlighted the problem of him crucifying horses for trying and feel he is responsible for the uncompetitive nature of maiden hurdles and novice chases.Everyone knows the disaster positions in those races are second and third part of his remit should be to favour the horses that have been running on their merits,he doesn't do that because he doesn't know as he barely seems to watch the races.

There lies the handicappers weakness,he doesn't want to admit he was wrong so the trick of getting in of a patently wrong mark takes ages to work itself out.
He punishes the horses running on their merits and rewards the plot horses,all this year I have felt the Green and Gold have sailed close to the wind,Alserwood at Fairyhouse being the worst case although Blissful Moment at Naas ran it a close second.
The handicapper never seems to take that aspect into his calculations and brings to mind an instance with a handicapper of years back,he was breasted by a trainer because he hadn't given a horse a mark,after a lengthy rant the handicapper replied I will rate him when he tries and only then.

Fiery Oscar reverts to chasing today after his improved effort over hurdling(much more difficult to do than going from chasing to hurdling in this context).He has made 9 starts over fences-his best finish being 4th in a handicap at Limerick off 99 in 2010.Although he looks to stay further,his 4 wins have come at the minimum distance,He appears to be thrown in off 89 today today but if you can't jump fences, it doesn't matter how well your in,would be a layer at 6/4 or shorter.

The fences are easy in Tramore but the ground could be a problem,he is by Oscar so should be alright on good ground and he is a handy enough horse so the idiosyncrancies of the course shouldn't bother him.

Willies Girl 6.50Kil,runs this evening on a 24lb better mark than her chase rating,she is blinkered so probably has quirks,still her last run wasn,t bad at all in quite a classy field,where she raced wide throughout but travelled well,slight mistake 5 out,she made ground to get into a challenging position until ultimitely weakening and falling at the last.Pick of her other runs this season would be her Leopardstown race(off 93) where she wasn,t beaten far against decent yardsticks.
Knockanarrigan won a race at Market Rasen while he is in good form not too sure that race amounts to much and Irish form previuos is poor,could well be improving however. Dante Anna while beaten a long way has raced against better,hard to find any other worthwhile current form in this fairly poor contest.
With 1 win from 29 starts not one to go overboard with,still ought to be thereabouts against this lot and hard to see her out of the places.

I think Pa Lapsy post of 9.58 is revealing
It is an excellent summation of the race,it correctly points out the weakness of the favourites form ( a massive drifter ) and puts up the 12/1 winner Dante Anna as the danger

This baldly putting up this horse will win is tiresome and of little value but putting your thoughts on a race can direct some of the more discerning to a winner.

I would be firmly with WMFB here.

Sometimes these handicap snips reverting from chasing to hurdling are not the great bet they are made out to be, as they are simply far better chasers than hurdlers. There is no evidence that that is the case here.

Foritsa is handicapped on 3 hurdle runs. Her last effort in this sphere was when 5th in a Tramore maiden. Her chase debut a couple of weeks later, and numerous subsequent P2P defeats were no improvement on that, suggesting she was no better over fences.

She has just simply improved dramatically as a racehorse of late, and there is every possibility she will be the equal of her chase mark over hurdles. Which makes her a cracking bet imo.

you really have to explain yourself callit. from the strongest possible lay advice to backing an entirely different horse a few hours later. I'm not saying anyone heeded your initial advice but it was a pretty bad call to seem so confident if you were so fickle.

Wildman, if what you allege about the handicapper is true it would be beyond belief i.e. not carefully reviewing this horse after its history. he is obviously very familiar with the connections carry-on from the past (Ruby riding short-odds shoo-ins in handicap hurdles) but Gallant Oscar was handicapped on the basis of a narrow victory ("all out under pressure") at Navan in January and had failed to win a low-grade handicap at Down Royal last Christmas when backed and running for Martin for first time. Bear in mind Martin is the third trainer to handle this horse.

He gets 11lbs for his troubles, up to 115, and still 18lbs below his chase mark. I don't really agree with discretionary subjective penalties based on the individuals involved and if there's something fishy going on it has to be a job for the stewards and not allowing them to rely on the handicapper for doling out punishment.

Incidentally, the Racing Post handicapper reckon he earned a mark of 114 after Navan in January (OR 104) and has given him 123 after this week's win so, all in all, still a mortgage job when Tony says "Go!" in the next valuable pot he contests.
