More tips for identifying poor betting value favourites
Continued from previous page
Here are some comments we made about beaten favourites at Rosehill from a few years ago which are just as relevant today.
Words Of Magic (4YO and UP Transition. Handicap. 1100 metres.)
Thorns (Open. Handicap. 1500 metres.)
Danzabeel (3YO S/C 1 win-ly. Handicap. 1400 metres.)
Approaching the first turn, Danzabeel was crowded, became unbalanced and struck the running rail. Jim Cassidy told the stewards after that Danzabeel got its head up, raced ungenerously and was never comfortable. Danzabeel never got into the race and finished a well beaten tenth.
The stewards found nothing wrong with Danzabeel after the race. Bad luck in running must be factored into the price you are prepared to accept. Maybe Danzabeel is one of those horses who gives up when inconvenienced in a race. There are also plenty of horses who, when inconvenienced, shrug their shoulders and fight on.
