I would not feel over concerned as these days the markets appear bonkers. It needs careful thought but sometimes when one i have already backed goes on the drift i top up at the bigger price. While i accept this is a dangerous game to play i keep separate accounts for these extra gains bets and ( so far ) they evidence its proved a profitable ploy and that Pink does not always prevent.16/1 from 10/1 in one hit soon after I bet, I hate when that happens. I can’t do anything now as I am already on, but it’s not a good sign.
My small way of dealing with such a drifter ( if I'm still happy to back it ) is to bet again at the higher price, for the same stake, and put a lay into the market to go in-running for the lower price I took. Doesn't always work, but I'm happier if it wins at the bigger price that way.16/1 from 10/1 in one hit soon after I bet, I hate when that happens.

Hi S Sandhog, I was only using the example of today’s race (3:45 Cork) that I ignored those that had placed in less than 50% of their races. This would not apply to all races, as I use stats that I believe will be important in a particular race.I'm not sure I totally understood: have you ditched the idea of concentrating on runners that have placed in 50% to 66% of their races?
Kevin Foy has shown in his short career that he has no problem getting one ready after an absence. He doesn't mention today's runner Sky Lake (20:30 Wol) in this weeks Weekender stable tour but I won't read too much into that as he didn't even mention that Pholas was running yesterday and she duly won at 25/1 despite looking out of her depth on ratings alone.
