: : :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.
: Horses bounce regardless of what class they run in. Cho
