“Profitable to back them runners blindly.”
One True King
His most recent run is worth forgiving. He was in the lead when jumping the 2nd last flight, he made a notable error, nearly fell on landing. Losing all momentum.
He was beaten 11L back in 3rd place behind Midnight River and Gallyhill. Maybe the trip was too far anyway. Handicapper has left him on that same mark of 131 here today. Going back into handicap company.
He was declared a NR in the Imperial Cup (Grade 3) a couple of weeks back due to the soft ground. Having been well backed for that much stronger race last time. So should appreciate the better going here today (good at present).
Trainer has a fairly decent strike rate at this course with his handicap hurdle runners. He’s sent out 7 winners and 3 places from just 26 handicap hurdle runners at this course, in the past 5 seasons. Profitable to back them runners blindly.
