Break the rules and still win! Turf snobbery and 3 for today.

How tolerant would we be to see a footballer putting the ball in the back off the net using his hand, the goals stands but the player is given a 4 day suspension? Or perhaps a bowler oversteps the crease and clean bowls the batsman, the wicket is given but the bowler gets a 4 day suspension! If a 4 day suspension was seen as an adequate punishment in the above scenarios you would expect the rule to be continually flouted. 

In Wolverhampton’s opener at 2:10 Connor Beasley, the jockey on first past the post Precision Strike was found to be in breach of using his whip above the permitted level and received a 4 day suspension. The horse kept 1st place and I am sure that if Mr Beasley finds himself in a similar situation, he will break the rule again! Even if stewards were allowed some discretion dependant on the proximity of rivals, given that our first ‘Profile’ horse Goldmadchen went down by only a nose, surely the common sense ruling would have been to demote the winner a place. Having circumstances where you are able to break the rules and still take the prize is irrational!

Perhaps the injustice was rewarded when another ‘Profile’ horse Just Five prevailed over Katmai River in another tight finish in the Wolverhampton finale. 2 x 1st, 2 x 2nd and 2 x Unplaced left me a little dissatisfied in what prove to be a reasonable day overall. We have three ‘Profile’ horses for you today and adding your email below this post will take you to the three horses. If you have previously submitted your email simply navigate to the usual URL.


You would think that there was no racing today with so much focus from the racing media on tomorrows start to the Flat Turf season. Even Hugh Taylor's first tip for today is for a race tomorrows Lincoln! And on the subject of the Lincoln, I can’t help but feel when looking at the race that the time for any snobbery over Turf as opposed to All Weather should be thrown out the window with only 3 runners in the race having not previously appeared on an artifice surface.


Have a great day Guys ;)
