    richie reacted to Whyisit in Opie update   
    Quote from  a poster on another racing forum    Explains  things quite well

     
    "Fawcett has an horrendous careless record cf to Opee"
    Jazz's five guilty Careless in the last year to Opee's 4...he had one in Sydney in April which the hopeless RIU didn't count...even though ALL suspensions are transferable World Wide...who knew?
    But the Stats that the 'none who are so blind' fail to see are the number of rides
    Jazz's 260 cf 130 for Opee
    So Opee's Careless riding record is almost TWICE as bad as Jazz's...
     
    Followed by this
     
    Lets look at the official report into Fawcett's careless ride cf Opee's
    Oh look, Opee got an extra upload from the EQUAL "low" range due to the FACT his 2 were  G 2 races to Jazz's G3
    Its that simple...and has been CONSISTENTLY applied...that's why both FRIVOLOUS appeals were dismissed...
    Look, Its even written down
    Rule 920(2) empowers a Committee in imposing a penalty to have due regard to such matters as it considers appropriate including: (a) the Status of the Race; (b) the stake payable in respect of the Race; (c) any consequential effects upon any person or horse as a result of the breach of the Rule; and/or (d) the need to maintain integrity and public confidence in racing.
    In terms of the Status of the Race it is the practice of this Committee, which is consistent with how others have interpreted the Rule, to apply uplift as follows:
    Group (1) – 3-day uplift
    Group (2) – 2-day uplift 
    Group (3) and Listed – 1-day uplift

    richie got a reaction from Hunter the punter in Loose Riening ?   
    Ian had the hands that farback.on the reins that if anything happened he had no control.
    Natalie,Mark,Blair and Tim always have hands right up on reins while "loose reigning"so they can still take control immediately.

    Great to see Jason Collett riding so well last couple of months.
    Our Jockeys are proving their worth.
    Daniel Stackhouse riding great as well as Michael Walker .
    James MacDonald not up to his usual high standards lately but I'm sure he will come right.He seems to be settling back.a lot lately,maybe trainers instructions,and running on for minor placings

    90% are impaired because they’re fasting and compromising their natural strength.
    As for CWJ drinking early in the day.....untrue....he had a few the night before, but he was wasting so didn’t eat dinner, or breakfast.....
    Facts are good, you should try using them

    Great fresh up record of 2 wins and a 2nd and has had 3 nice trials to get ready for this.Currently @ $2.60 but I believe will be $2 by start time.
