Cannot really see a positive way of using wind direction, if in doubt keep your money in your pocket and do not bet in inclement Weather.
Each to there own but Re inclement weather, i find Turf Flat - Soft to be one of the very best times to bet. I am an experienced practitioner of mid summer rain dances.Cannot really see a positive way of using wind direction, if in doubt keep your money in your pocket and do not bet in inclement Weather.
I now prefer newcastle of all the aw tracks although i do think there is an advantage for those racing on the nearside but horses do need to settle or they struggle to get home. While i'm at it I have come to the conclusion that southwell is a freek of a course and it is very difficult to ride a normal race especially if you are on a horse that wants holding up and producing a furlong or so out, they seem to be choke out while still on the bend unlike most tracks....I think.When Newc AW opened i waited a year just watching before starting to actually bet there. Surface aside a straight mile on any track can prove a marmite job and for those who have shown a liking then it does provide us with a positive but running against a strong head wind could be a neg to chance over 8 fur, so smart riders on hold ups kept in the slip stream will benefit from this.
A lot of my bets are on moderate horses in low grade races and FT or re use of head gear often plays a part and occasionally makes the difference. Do i see any as a positive not always, but sometimes you can glean from an animals previous runs why they might be, as can reverting to running without which is a harder one to get your head round.?Cheekpieces.
First time or not do you see these as a positive?
FT = First time and Re the running without when previous wins have been with. A few years back i swerved a 12/1 winner because of this and ever since when given the same circumstances i have given more thought as to why. Most often it remains a negative but not always and the win normally comes at a big price because of.
