Nature Strip $5 into $3.50
NS seems to win when its $5+He performs at a level to win this 30% of the time. No wonder the price shortened. 1200m the obvious concern he may not do it that often.
Still dirty the day he was 30:1 on the fair in the everest wasn't one of those days. Ridiculous price given what he did very next start.
PS the obvious bet here is Bivouac provided it's somewhat firm ground.
His inconsistency pre-dates Waller but it's much worse these days. Would struggle to believe a horse like him could have throat issues but would explain stopping dead some times, even if it's just mentally he's expecting pain which is common in horse population. I think Waller/sprinter is of some concern.Not sure if true but I heard somewhere the squib had breathing issues, which may relate to his inconsistency.
Or does he just decide not to turn up randomly?
