: : :Bouncing,race pressure-two different things. An MSW runs a 12 1/2 is now placed in a M/C where the top horse can run an 11 1/2. The MSW may well run a 10 3/4 because the M/C horses cannot keep up and the MSW horse does its best. If it then goes up in class, in a race run in 9 1/2, the horse probably, regardless of early pace, will go back to a 12 or 13. Because at some point, it was not fast enough to keep up. The same horse,instead runs against slower company, may pair up the 10 3/4. Bouncing would be running an 8 in the MC, the maximum effort drops it back next race, regardless of the company. Bouncing, race pressure, two different things.

: Are you saying speed figures are affected by Class? If I understand you, you are saying a classier animal dropping in class, with a slower speed figure, will run a better number against an inferior field even if the inferior (i.e. mcl) field contains an animals with a better speed figure (meaning these mcl animals have run faster than the MSW according to the speed figures). If this is correct, then do you believe earned speed figures are biased by the internal pressure of the race and subsequently don't play a horse to bounce no matter how big a move if that animal continues to run against sub-par fields?

: Horses bounce regardless of what class they run in. Cho
Horses will bounce no matter what class they run in. Cho
