I'm not talking about win percentages.
Trainers NOT using illegal drugs are going to go on streaks where their horses' FIGURES are abnormally good and abnormally bad.
Right? In my very best Queens English: Am I right or am I right?
And, again, I'm sympathetic to the cause. I have little doubt that some trainers cheat. (If some trainers didn't cheat it would be a very bizarre profession - i.e. a profession not populated by human beings.)
I just don't see how hot-&-cold streaks would be probative.
