    Bit of a gamble on this mare who I’ve followed. Didn’t even see her in the picture going out on the track, though, no mention on SIS??? Can nyone enlighten me?

    Looked like she never went out onto the track to me- didn’t see the mare anywhere. Very odd.

    Do we still have an offical "under starters orders".  I though this was was binned a few years ago?

    racecourse commentators were obliged to start their commentary with " their under starters orders" but succesfully lobbied( if thats the right expression) to have it dropped a couple of years ago.  would this be what your thinking of wallace?  horses do still have to come under orders from the starter to be declared a runner.

    RR – Refused to Race. Under starter’s orders, stake lost

    WD – Withdrawn. Not under starter’s orders, stake returned

    Definitely down as "refused to race, took no part" in the RP’s database entry for her.

    Were it possible for Timeform to accord horses a treble squiggle, she’d be a candidate on her antics of at least the last year. Poisonous creature.

    Still can’t find one person who saw the horse come under orders haha!

    A poisonous but talented creature, graysonscolumn. Pity they haven’t managed to harnass the ability thus far.

    I’ve seen more than one instance this year where the field is held for a horse has shown absolutely no inclination to take part in the race, and yet it’s included as a runner having ‘taken no part’ or ‘refused to race’.

    In a National Hunt race if a horse doesn’t move then it shouldn’t be classed as a runner. Rule 4 should be applied in the same way as if the horse was withdrawn.

    In flat races there’s a more clear definition, in that if a horse enters the stalls it’s a runner. Not much consolation if your horse then doesn’t move when the stalls open, but at least there’s a clear dividing line.

    <br>Indeed so, Dandan, hence the perserverence I guess. Her winning bumper form for Simon Earle was nothing exceptional, but there’s certainly some raw material to work with. One day. Somehow.
