Swings & Roundabouts.

I'm very lucky because Kirtling WON by a nose , he's about 17 hands & his rival 15 , massive size difference & the bob won it 👍

Very interesting that you have knowledge of the size of Kirtling.  Is there a website that shows these details?  I have always felt that Timeform let's us armchair punters down by not giving such information and as to whether the horse has the type of action for fast ground or that it is a big striding horse that is suited to galloping tracks etc.  Also, I feel that they should update these sort of details about a horse as it matures and gets older.  Would be great to find a website that could give me that kind of information.

I think your over complicating things and why is it Timeform's responsibility to give you that sort of information??

They are not working for the punter, just selling a product, if anyone it should be likes of the BHA.

Anyway the size of a horse makes little difference, you get small chasers and big sprinters.

I don't see why you say I am complicating things.  I wouldn't try and drive a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow around Silverstone just as I wouldn't want to put my money on a big long striding horse around Chester.

The product that Timeform sells is supposed to be to help punters find winners using the information that they provide.  There is so much drivel about the horse's breeding and imo not enough about the attributes of the horse itself which could help punters in trying to make a profit on their bets. 

The physical abilities of a horse and how it is affected by its size and attributes, to me, is very important.  The data is out there but as I have said, it does not seem to be available to us armchair punters.

Listen, all i'm saying is if you need to know how big a horse is before you consider having a bet in a race than you are over-thinking it.

I am prepared to bet that 99% of punters in this comp or on this site dont even know that info or even care.

Timeform are speed specialists (the clue is in the title) and the apparent lack of this info anywhere tells you everything. (or are they keeping it themselves) 😄

there are some clues on the racecard but yiu have to pay for them, if you class leggy and well made clues??

I would look for a different kind of edge to be honest.👍
