Jerry, mon chapeau, he said my comments on weight were wrong. This is what I said.

Weight - a relatively tiny component assuming we are talking about a relatively tiny difference in weight. If two horses were likely to run 3's and one is carrying ten pounds less I'm probably going with that one (ground loss?), and in this example, it's a major component. Common sense would dictate the longer the race, the more the weight matters.

First off, this is CLEAR. Any clearer and you could walk through it. Second, this is absolutely in line with TG methodology and related dogma. Third, he said it was wrong!

If this is wrong, how can you say he understands the weight/lengths thing? Then he went off on his dizzy tangent about the relative importance of lengths at different distances (a completely separate issue).

I know you like the guy. I like him too. Even though it takes him fourteen thousand words to say 'maybe'. If he talks like he writes he's got me out-yakked by ten freakin miles.

Don't forget my overall mastery of these frequently debated concepts, mon plume de derriere. HP
