Only 2 Drives?

Recommended Posts

As the fields are a bit week this time of year, one of the things that has peaked my interest is following Ricky May's countdown to 3000

Disappointing to see he hasn't got any drives on Friday night and only listed for 2 at Timaru.

Demand for him has been in decline for quite some time. Perhaps he is not as hungry these days  and not chasing drives as much. He used to drive a lot for Courts, Jones and Hopes but only occasionally now.

He drives for luck too much these days whereas aggressive drivers are winning the majority of Metrop races these days. Just my thoughts

I see he has picked up 2 or 3 extra drives.  I thought he was doing pretty well considering the drives he has been getting.  He drove a 50-1 shot a few weeks ago.

Ben Hope has naturally taken a lot of the drives Ricky  would have had previously and Courts & Jones supporting their stable employee's with their starters.

I do think Ricky has been more aggressive than he use to be when he has the horsepower to compete. Either way it is going to be great to see him get his next 3 wins

And yet there is so much incompetence on show every week
