When horse owners get together before a race, the first words a fellow owner asks the other owner, is your horse trying? Nop you won’t find this information in the racing post.
This is mainly because they know that some will be trying and some won’t. Most owners will have a bet on their own horse, so by weighing up the competition will decide on whether they have a few thousand bet or a few hundred bet. The racing post will give you a wealth of information but also can give you too much information which can detract you from the likely winner if the favorite won’t be putting his best hoof forward.
When there is money involved there is always corruption. So with an 87% + placed strike rate we’ve a good handle on who will be trying and who won’t. but it’s still tricky sometimes.
The racing post results pages offer a good insight as to when a horse hasn’t been trying especially when the trainer gives a long winded explanation as to the horses poor performance.
Also a good indicator when a horse won’t be trying is by watching his previous races, and when it clearly needs further and is entered over a shorter trip there is something definitely smelly going on.
The Racing post is very good at putting you off the scent of a likely winner, especially Jimmy the guesser, this is mainly because they writers haven’t got a clue or they are just using the old fashioned tools in the box, such as traditional form only and not all the other tools in our arsenal.
