Every 10 starts without success you drop a class......if you are a C10 and race 90 times without winning you will become a C1.The secret is in the understanding of the word "handicapper"......in the races I mentioned and others not mentioned the office respons...

Well then really, that's the trainer's fault - not the handicappers. And I'm not sure that's how handicapping works in WA. I'm 95% sure you cant drop to a C4 to a C1 based on a losing sequence. Mares can drop a class against the boys, and juniors can drop a cl...

Yep, old "qualifying stakes" was for 2.25 or better which equates to C3....agree the RBD of The San Simeon Final makes for a potential no contest.

Because at GP C1's can be competitive against C8's if they are drawn inside.....such is the pegs advantage. Also C1's are not always genuine C1's ie they may have been C4's who have dropped back after a series of losses

but why are C1's entering for M0 races? When I was a kid, you generally wouldn't enter for GP on a Friday unless you'd won 4 country races from memory.

You sure they didn't get the wrong jockey??? Simone on the 2nd horse stopped riding a few strides out and nearly looked to pull it up, but randy was on a animal paddling at best and if he did much more he could have been accused of flogging a dead horse!?!?!!?...
