While Mr Channing is about.
Just noticed today that Secret Gesture is available to lay at circa 5/2.
I got on at 25s.
Being mindful of your comments yesterday, I need clarification.
I would never back this horse at 5/2, ie, I no longer think its value. I also can't see another horse that I consider A, the winner , or B, value.
Should I green out, or let it run it's course?
Depends. What made you back it in the first place?
Really, if you think it's a terrible priice and a stone bonking lay, you should switch your position so you win £0 if it wins and get the lot if its beat.
Say you've had £10 @ 25/1, now you should lay £100 @ 3.5
No doubt someone will tie me up in knots, but...
I cant see what else is going to win, but based on what I have seen, the fact the ground will be different to anything she has run on(I expect), the track, etc, I wouldn't back it at 5/2. If it was a fresh race to me, at these prices, I wouldn't have a bet.Make sense?
In this case, and trying to make logical sense of my own thoughts, I think I should lay enough to get my stake back and let the horse run for nothing?
