So at 4 she's a moral but 5 she'd be too unfit - seems about as legit a theory as the 10k Cup rule discussion
there are statistics that show that horses win more in a certain time frame from when the date they raced before. Thats fact and has held up for decades. You ignore those facts and you will lose in the long run.

What if she raced next Wednesday would that be ok? Or do horses drop off a cliff if they haven't raced within 28 days?

I think you need to watch some European racing to see how made up this myth is.

this is Australia. Could not give a rats rear end about European racing, its actually rubbish racing except for the big meetings and jumping.
Anyway keep doing what your doing. i am sure it works for you....

From what i can tell >+200m dist change when faves, drops SR from 34% to 28% and POT from -8% to -29% when between 29-59 days from last start.

thats a big drop.

This is the kind of intellect I'd expect to see from someone who paid off their house on the punt ;)

Question avoiding Liefzy would be proud of though - if she is a moral off a 4 week break but a lay off a 5 week lay off where does this magical fitness cliff kick in? Can't you see why this seems a little bit questionable?

SR% drops after 28 days. POT goes up but more indication of the robot's laying them because drop in SR

14 days: 31%/-9.8%
21 days: 31%/-9.0%
28 days: 31%/+4.8%
35 days: 27%/-0.1%
42 days: 21%/-59.0%
Good stats - suggests to me old Heathsy has gone a week or so to early with his cliff theory

My intellect follows racing statistics in Australia because European statistics for Australian racing are 100 percent irrelevant.
Its not questionable at all. Proof is in the stats. Aussie training methods are different and therefore they hold up in Australia.
I have many many rules that have stood the test of time, too many to post here, i might start another thread one day to list them. They may not pick winners but they sure do stop me backing losers and this one works.
