Your ratings have done it again.
Today at Gore looking for some entertaining small bets on big price horses. Started from race 3 so I only had 6 each way bets. Until the last race only collect on the highly rated roughies was Lord Yarborough paid $3.60 FF place.
Then in the last race the ratings threw up two horses top rated after adjustments. One was at $5 but the other was Split Decision with 3kg claim at $14 on FF (came into $13), rating and price was the first tick. Looked through rating history and best rated recent performance was 3 races ago over 2000m Dead 4 with senior jockey on, then two runs over 1600 for 3rd and 2nd and now back up to 2000m on Dead 6, so 2nd tick.
I’m sold at this stage based on ratings.
Dig a bit further and saw that last start 2nd was to Dewdrop who ran a game 2nd earlier in the day, 3rd tick. Last few starts has begun very well, winners been handy most of the day and barrier 1, fourth tick. So with all those ticks I doubled up on my bet size each way at $14.
The rest is history, jumped well, easy lead and then waved them goodbye at the 300. Marvellous.
