I guess they feel the need to fit a narrative around the result of every race but if you are going to contradict yourself from race to race it makes it awfully confusing, they say they are trying to help the punter but if you come in on a Monday and tell everyone what a great lay Vega was two days after it runs, I’m not quite sure what it achieves.
If it wins they had vinces figures ready to go indicating it was ready to peak off a big Everest run

IMO there's an optimum moderate pace. Sometimes they can go too slow.
Much can depend on when the jockeys press the button or established gaps in the field. 3L covering the field rounding bends at the 350m is obviously not optimal. Not sure dropping anchor at the mile up to 1000 really hinders ldrs chances.

If every horse is comfortable in the run then it comes down to whoever can sprint the fastest. If they go slow horses out wide are not inconvenienced therefore more chances at the end. There is an optimal way of rating horses in front, most jockeys these days are clueless. It obviously also depends on the horse.

Nah this is definitely new. Seems a thing they would say. Just seen a lot of criticism of jocks lately because they walked when leading.
Depends what he backed and who rode it.

If it's a Sircconi type ride and Linda Meech is on, it's a fantastic tactical ride, if he's on something out the back that's inconvenienced it's a pathetic walkathon and the winner is no good.

The new clueless tipster on the block is Matt Welsh "my trial files"
i think i have seen him tip about one winnr which was $1.80 and Michael Felgate (who also is clueless) fawns all over him.
Seems like to get a gig in the media these days you just need some new idea and they will pay you for shocking ideas and tips

They were in fine form this week. Ralph asks the simple question of ‘Vince, give us one word who’s going to win the cup’ Nope can’t even do that ‘Spend $20 and sign up to be a group1 supporter’ Truly pathetic.

Oh and Ralph re-getting Shoals wrong is some podcast gold. Weight had no bearing it was some other things he didn’t take into consideration, like it being more positive because it had no weight. :oops:

Just listened to Railway review. What the actual ****. These guys are ******* morons. I knew they were bad but people actually listen to these ******s?
Can you summarise? I can’t get more than 5 mins into them. Vince styles himself as some sort of racing guru life coach positivity buddha. Makes me want to throw the computer at the window.

What's the mantra? "Enjoy punting while you lose"
