Wet Track Performances
Why do some horses perform on wet tracks? A great judge once told me he thought it was two dimensional. The first group are those with joint injuries that enjoy the soft impact. The second group was those trained to run in any conditions. With the second group he thought the trainer influences the way the horse copes. He thought trainers who work their horses in the wet conditioned the horses mind to cope better. He thought the breed factor was over played. Thoughts anyone!
I think they are like a lot of species out there where some have the confidence to stretch out and others don't for some reason I think a lot of it is mental confidence in their ability.I agree with you a lot on this Camper.
Anything wet above a d5 I do not play so wet tracks are a no no for me.
In my opinion on heavy tracks there is a huge advantage for the lightweights. One day i only took those and had almost every winner. Kind of crazy despite from.
After years of being involved studying the form, watching races etc. I've noticed 2 particular things are that as stated above by DaneDream that lightweights are favored in the wet as well as a wide gate.
yea im with snappon, i wouldnt be loading up on anything this weekend, hate betting on slow and heavy tracks, always surprises.
Light weights are over rated in the wet imo
Just an interesting stat for wet tracks is that favourites are more likely to win on slow/heavy tracks rather than good/dead rated tracks, which goes against popular theory.
With the prize money up for offer the shorter favourites are trained up to perform so I would agree with that UKLaySystem and some are weighted real good tomorrow.
