I looked in the red board room for selections of the card at GP yesterday and had a question.
I recognize that picks are made before hand and that you don't have the benefit of earlier races on the card but you do have the benefit of previous days' bias or trends.
My question concerns the 8th race. I too liked Iwin to get back or go through his previous top in this race and thought he offered value vs foes that either ran new tops in their last or were possible bounce candidates. The problem I had in making the play, even at what I would normally consider acceptable odds, was the position that I would have expected Iwin to be in. He broke from the 7 hole in a 7 horse field on a track which greatly favored the rail and had been favoring the inside for 2 days. I couldn't forsee a trip where Iwin would be able to get the rail or save ground.
Is this a situation where you would have to pass the race at 5-2 or 3-1 (the odds suggested) but couldn't resist the race at say 5-1 or 6-1?
