Taree Race 3 #4 Morado – what a bizarre day.  Loss of 2 Units today

Firstly the price of our selection went from $3.80 to $1.70, then shortened even further.   Started Odds On with the Corporates but got out to $2.1 on the TAB’s.  In the previous 2 races she had drawn horror barriers and came flying home.  Today with an inside barrier was her chance to establish a good position and challenge in the straight.  Instead she jumped well, had the rail and had SHEZA GYPSY held out wide and SHE’S RICH even wider out.  Inexplicably she was pulled back to give the rail to the eventual winner and settle second last.  She’s Rich tried to get the lead, but Sheza Gypsy wasn’t giving up that advantage.  Sheza Gypsy railed well, while Morado had to swing wide to get around the pack.  Just queer tactics.  No Stewards reports yet, but I don’t expect to see anything in them, just weird tactics.  I don’t know what caused the price to drop so much, but I suspect that a big betting syndicate has assessed the previous form in the same manner, and that they also expected different tactics. Once they started backing her, the Corporates ran for cover.  We were wrong … bugger 😦

On to Wednesday now …
