    Pretty good/interesting card of racing at GP tonight

    Just the one E/W for me tonight  Race 7 horse no 4 High Price @ $26 , been very consistent , its mile rates are good , and last start real eye catcher , black booker , be on it next start 

    On face value the $1.30 fave ex NZ  horse 1st up win in Oz , slow mile rate after being  absolutely gifted the lead on a silver plate 

    Limited chances in this race , the breeze wouldnt be a bad spot for the horse ive tipped

    Been a bit busy so just catching up on things 

    But  i must say and i do read the interstate stewards reports re following the form and on a whole i think they are far more detailed than the WA Trots ones and by a hell of along way 

    And i must say Frid night GP  Race 5 , that is one of the most perplexing pathetic stewards reports of all time 

    I watched that race live ( no bets ) and the 3 runners on the 2nd line all missed the start hopelessly , especially the 11 and 12 ( who did run 2nd and 3rd and got swamped on the line )  by 5-6 lengths 

    The stewards report for each of those 3 backline horses simply says "  Back from its position in the early stages of the score up and lost further ground when the Mobile barrier increased speed resulting in it not being fully in position at the start "

    Well why were they out of position in the early stages ? and then did the mobile barrier then go to quick ? , no questioning of the drivers concerned ?  , no reprimand or fine , no just all good and straight through to the keeper 

    Trent Wheeler on the winner from a wide gate got in front of the 11 and 12 because of them being way out of position at the start , so it was materially important 

    That stewards report re those 3 runners re information to the punter who are encouraged to bet on these things  is  a 1000%   Total embarrassment

    Score up speed on the mobile is wildy different for each race it actually effects horses gate speed so I’m not sure why it’s not taken more seriously, as long as they release at the correct speed they don’t care

    I watched that race live and was waiting for the false start light. The mobile took off like a rocket, even the front line horses were having difficulty maintaining position. I agree that the stewards report was inadequate.

    All mobile starts should be set on the computer so all the same and that takes away human error but i don't believe this is happening. Drivers that continually have horses not in position at the candy pole should be suspended or even a downgrade of license  now this would fix the problem. It's actually cheating.

    The speed at release point of the mobile will be the same for each race as long as the computer settings are not changed from race to race which for 3yo and older will be 46km/h. Depending on the different mobile vehicles some may accelerate more quickly in the earlier stages of the scoreup which can be problematic. This is when the starter needs to communicate with the drivers and not push the start button too early to activate the mobile to start moving. Eg tell drivers first up to barrier to ease pace to allow last to turn to balance and get up closer towards barrier

    It’s not the vehicles and I’m 90% sure they don’t use the computer for scoring up. You watch any meeting and the score up speed is different for every race of the night
  • ZimmermanZimmerman    83 posts
    Well if the starter is not using the the programmed computer setting if not sure why because it’s the simplest way to score up a field. Only time you need to use the manual control accelerator is when a false start is activated and the starter decides to continue around then he must use the manual control up to speed for second attempt.
